Episode #76 – Fictional Dads (Good and Bad)

Pop culture is filled with notable fathers and father figures. From Star Wars to The Simpsons, dad’s play an important part in the development of our lead characters. They can act as an influence towards positive growth, but sometimes through the sins of the father, they can also present some internal obstacles for our protagonist to face and overcome. In honor of Father’s Day (this coming Sunday in the United States) we’re looking at fathers in media and the effect they have on their children.
