The Dr. Vibe Show
We have Dalton Higgins back!!Dalton is considered one of Canada's foremost experts on popular culture. He has recently written his fourth book, "Fatherhood 4.0: iDad Applications Across Cultures".In "Fatherhood 4.0: iDad Applications Across Cultures", some of Canada's most acclaimed multicultural personalities, public figures, intellectuals, entertainers, athletes, and activists share stories, memories, insights, and revelations about fatherhood, from comic to tragic. As an African-Canadian fatherhood advocate, Dalton also digs around to see how Black fathers of this millennium are faring, as academics and pundits have debated for decades what is at the heart of the problem when it comes to the much-publicized shortcomings of Black fathers.The book spots trends across a newer generation of media-savvy multicultural dads influenced by everything from George Lopez and Bill Cosby to the Osbournes and Obama, with keen insights and essays from fatherhood activists. It includes essays on the "baby daddy" phenomenon and Bob Marley, pops in popular culture, technology and parenting, and crucial research on aboriginal fatherhood by Dr. Jessica Ball. Some of the people interviewed are: Michael "Pinball" Clemons, Broken Social Scene's Charles Spearin, Toronto FC's Dwayne De Rosario, Bollywood Boulevard's Mohit Rajhans, George Elliot Clarke, Hal Niedzvicki, Lawrence Hill, dramatist Richard Lee, CBC Radio's Matt Galloway, social entrepreneur Sol Guy and more!!Dalton has written three other books. He also co-directed and produced "More Than A Haircut", the critically acclaimed documentary about Black fathers and barbershop culture.
