REWIND: Fatherhood and the Forgiveness with Bill Gaston
Fathers are often held to a god like standard and judged harshly when they fall. For young men coming into adulthood there is longing for something only their fathers can provide and without this transference the journey feels incomplete.
Bill Gaston is a Giller Nominated, award winning author and lecturer living in Victoria BC. In his recent memoire, Just Let Me Look At You Bill reflects on the meaning of fatherhood, family secrets and forgiveness. In this episode I talk with Bill Gaston about finding empathy for our all too human fathers, even after they have passed. We also explore the unique blocks to intimacy and connection between fathers and sons.
