October 24: The Father Hood
Luke Benedictus …
in conversation with Bill Kable

The Father Hood is a new destination for modern dads. A conversation over a beer between two dads led to a website and now a book celebrating the growing tribe of hands-on dads. Men are discovering that becoming a father is the greatest opportunity a man can have. Luke is one of three creators of the book crammed with interviews from celebrities like Hugh Jackman through to the everyday dad. Each contributor recognises that this is the greatest time in history to be a dad and men should not miss it.


October 31: Gai Tai Shanghai
Eric Johnson …
in conversation with Bill Kable

There is a more mobile workforce and rising participation of women in senior roles. In Shanghai the female expat executives are often bringing with them a trailing husband or Guy Tai. This is part of a worldwide trend towards men leaving the workforce to do all the work around the home while it is the wife who becomes the breadwinner. Today we talk to Eric Johnson from rural USA who has recently been a Guy Tai in Shanghai and he tells us first-hand about the lifestyle of men in this situation.
