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.

In this episode of Dad From Scratch, host Steve Fink talks to Lt. Jarron Jackson, a 14-year veteran of the Baltimore City Police Department. Lt. Jackson came on the show just a few days after it was announced that all charges were dropped against his fellow officers indicted in the death of Freddie Gray. It's been a very long and difficult year for many if not all Baltimore City police officers, and I had to find out what it's like to be in their shoes -- especially as a father. Lt. Jackson is a father of four and revealed some very personal details about the struggles of being both a cop and a dad in today's very tense climate for law enforcement nationwide. There's no question this may be the most compelling and important episode of Dad From Scratch yet.
