In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to Eric & Julia Lewald responsible for showrunning (either collectively or individually) X-Men: The Animated Series back in the 90's. This series was groundbreaking for it's storytelling style, it's artistic design, and how it laid the foundation for the current Superhero boom we're in the midst of today. 

Enjoy!

About Eric & Julia Lewald

Eric Lewald and Julia Lewald are two of the premier writer-producers in youth-oriented and animated television, with over 700 produced credits, a number-one hit, an Emmy nomination and an Environmental Media Award between them. They have been showrunners, together or individually, on 14 series, including X-MEN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, the show that put Marvel characters on the map and made Fox TV the number one network in kids’ programming.

Eric and Julia met at Walt Disney TV Animation during the era of The Disney Afternoon, where they each wrote for Chip ’n’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, Tale Spin, and Winnie the Pooh.

The Lewalds, both together and individually, have developed series for most of the major studios – for Universal, MGM, Fox, Disney; for Ivan Reitman at Northern Lights; and for Spielberg and Katzenberg at Dreamworks. At Sam Raimi’s Renaissance Films, they supervised the writing on all 50 episodes for the Hercules/Xena spin-off Young Hercules, starring Oscar-nominee Ryan Gosling. For Bonnie Hammer at USA Network they developed and ran Streetfighter, the top animated series on the network. Their RoboCop: Alpha Commando resurrected the RoboCop franchise, and Exo Squad, whose first year Eric supervised, became Universal’s number one animated action series. Julia’s Skeleton Warriors series was a hit on CBS.

The Lewalds most recently were developers/showrunners for the first successful 3D-CGI animated action-adventure series, Dream Defenders, for Singapore’s Tiny Island Productions, which premiered in September, 2011, as the top hit on the Sony-Discover-Imax 3D cable network, 3Net.

In this episode of the podcast Joe welcomes back former guest Jordan Shapiro to discuss his latest book: "Father Figure: How to be a Feminist Dad".

Joe and Jordan discuss our old patriarchal way of viewing the world, how systems we've become accustomed to are hurting the progress we're trying to make, and how we can start to build a better world for all.

It's a fascinating discussion that digs deep into the uncomfortableness of our previously fixed perspectives, just in time for Father's Day.

Enjoy!

About Father Figure

Father Figure

There are hundreds of books on parenting, and with good reason—becoming a parent is scary, difficult, and life-changing. But when it comes to books about parenting identity, rather than the nuts and bolts of raising children, nearly all are about what it's like to be a mother.

Drawing on research in sociology, economics, philosophy, gender studies, and the author's own experiences, Father Figure sets out to fill that gap. It's an exploration of the psychology of fatherhood from an archetypal perspective as well as a cultural history that challenges familiar assumptions about the origins of so-called traditional parenting roles. What paradoxes and contradictions  are inherent in our common understanding of dads? Might it be time to rethink some aspects of fatherhood?

Gender norms are changing, and old economic models are facing disruption. As a result, parenthood and family life are undergoing an existential transformation. And yet, the narratives and images of dads available to us are wholly inadequate for this transition. Victorian and Industrial Age tropes about fathers not only dominate the media, but also contour most people's lived experience. Father Figure offers a badly needed update to our collective understanding of fatherhood—and masculinity in general. It teaches dads how to embrace the joys of fathering while guiding them toward an image of manliness for the modern world.

About Jordan Shapiro

Jordan Shapiro, PhD is a globally celebrated American thought leader. He's senior fellow for the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, and Nonresident Fellow in the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution. His Forbes' column (2012-17) on global education, learning through digital play, kids and culture was read by over 5 million people around the world. He is an international speaker and consultant whose fresh perspective combines psychology, philosophy, and economics in unexpected ways. His book, The New Childhood: Raising Kids To Thrive in a Connected World (Little, Brown Spark 2018) changed the cultural conversation about parenting and screen time.

In his upcoming book, Father Figure: How to be a Feminist Dad (Little, Brown Spark 2021), Shapiro offers a norm-shattering perspective on fatherhood, family, and gender essentialism. This thoughtful exploration of dad-psychology—presented from an archetypal perspective—challenges our familiar assumptions about the origins of so-called traditional parenting roles. There are hundreds of books on parenting, but when it comes to books about parenting identity, rather than the nuts and bolts of raising children, nearly all are about what it's like to be a mother. Father Figure fills that gap. It teaches dads how to embrace the joys of fathering while guiding toward an image of manliness for the modern world.
