Searching For Atticus
Fatherhood
Show Notes

Kevin Hart makes his dramatic debut as Matt Logelin, whose wife dies within days of giving birth to their first child. When his strong-willed mother-in-law (Alfre Woodard) insists that  Matt and his daughter Maddy move back home to Minnesota, Matt refuses - remaining in Boston to raise the baby on his own.
For Blake, Rich & Kofi, watching Matt struggle with sleepless nights, inconsolable crying and nasty diapers is a trip back to a time that makes us all  wonder if anyone is ever really prepared for fatherhood. We debate whether dads are still the "spare tire" on the parenting vehicle - capable of handling only low speeds and short distances.  We also look at the impact of casting one of the world's biggest black movie stars in a film based on the real-life story of a white man.
