On the radio show this week, first up we hear from the researcher whose data sparked a New York Times article with this title: "The Motherhood Penalty vs. the Fatherhood Bonus --- A Child Helps Your Career, if You’re a Man." 
Our next segment covers former Raven's player, Ray Rice, domestic violence, and masculinity with NFL veteran, media commentator, college football Hall of Famer, and all around super star, Don McPherson. 
Then the next interview covers the historic vote that recently happened on the Paycheck Fairness Act: Get the inside scoop on what happened and next steps! 
Last but far from least: U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, will join us to talk early learning, education, tips for parents, and… bus rides.  You're not going to want to miss that segment.

  • Dr. Michelle Budig, University of Massachusetts; 
  • Don McPherson, NFL veteran, media commentator, advocate, educator, and college football Hall of Famer, @DonMcPherson
