Today's is a very special Father's Day episode of “Hey Gerle!” with Mike's father, Bill!
The “Hey Gerle!” episodes are designed to be an “ask anything” Q&A between me and you, the listener. I will normally be doing these with the help of my GerleMen Podcast family, Garrett & Lesley.
On this special Father’s Day edition of “Hey Gerle,” my dad and I will both be asking each other questions and answering each other’s questions. My Dad answers questions about what it was like to be a Mormon father with a gay son, and I answer some questions about what it was like to be a gay man with a Mormon father.
My father and I have been through a lot. It is an intensely emotional interview. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did recording it.
This interview humbles me with gratitude for my father, a man I vilified as a teenager & young adult, who has become one of my greatest sources of strength and inspiration. I could not be more proud to call myself “Gerle”.
