Moments before attending his orientation as a rising junior at Berkeley, author Mike Adamick joined us to talk about his early career as a journalist, how his blog jump-started his book-writing career, and his new life as a college kid, studying sociology and gender relations with a peer group half his age.
Mike is one of the oldest-school dadfluencers we know, having written extensively about making the most of his 14 years as a stay-at-home dad.
