The Biology of Dads

Apologies for the unannounced short hiatus, kittens. As I write this, my beloved laptop is resting, in approximately 1 thousand pieces on my kitchen table, waiting for a single new part. Hopefully y’all were too occupied with matters of apple pie and mashed potatoes to be disappointed.


Maybe over this holiday weekend you saw your dad. And I certainly hope that those who saw their dads were pleased by that fact. There can be a whole lot of feelings that come with thinking about the dude who may or may not be the provider of the champion sperm that led to our arrival.

This hour-long documentary shows the grueling competition between 250 million sperm that occurs in each ejaculation in a unique, artistic and cute way.



This hour-long documentary looks at why a child’s relationship with his/her father is so important and how it shapes their choices in adulthood.
