Ravi Patel was able to chat with me about fatherhood, his new docuseries called The Pursuit of Happiness and how family is the most important thing we have in this world. During our conversation Ravi and I discuss how we are not only taking care of our kids, but we are looking out for our parents as well. Ravi shares the lessons he learned while filming this four part series and how he saw his parents in a new light. We also chat about the good work his is doing in the This Bar Saves Lives organization. We finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five.
