Continuing with fatherhood this preseason, Remoy and Samantha meld minds with Pulitzer prize winning-author Greg Pardlo, on his book Air Traffic: A Memoir of Ambition and Manhood in America. His father was one of the 11,000 air traffic controllers fired by Ronald Reagan in 1981, and with this book, Pardlo paints a vivid picture of his family life growing up, providing intimate insight into the connection between masculinity and labor in American society with the fallout of his father's career. The three look at the intersection blackness, masculinity and labor, then addiction, and how a man's sense of self can be based on everything outside of himself.
