Episode 63 of Modern Dadhood opens with a brief conversation about something called an "amuse-bouche," and a story from Marc about one of his 4-year-old twins working through some big emotions like a true champion. Marc shares that something very special happens during the second half of our interview with comedian Chris Gethard: Previous Modern Dadhood guest Brian Manor (Episode 41) is invited back to meet Chris, whose 2017 HBO special "Career Suicide" had a meaningful impact on Brian's own journey with mental illness. The conversation covers topics including:

•  The uncluttered, unbiased love that a kid shows their parent
•  Chris' fear of his son Cal discovering his writing and stage work
•  Previous guest Brian Manor addresses Chris directly
•  Beard growing techniques
•  The risk of becoming a spokesperson for depression
• And more!
