Dad From Scratch

Dad From Scratch is a podcast created by Steve Fink, a father of two toddlers in Baltimore. The show was created to feature as many different and unique perspectives of fatherhood that Steve could find. We all experience this wild journey differently and it's interesting to see how our backgrounds or careers or beliefs or cultures alter the way we enjoy (or not enjoy, for some) being a dad. Dad From Scratch aims to take in all those perspectives through weekly interviews. Steve Fink is the Director of News Programming and Promotion for CBS Local. He's spent 15 years with CBS, working in Baltimore and Manhattan. This podcast is not affiliated with CBS or any CBS property.
