On Father's Day, many celebrate their fathers. But some children pay tribute to their dads daily by earning a living following in their footsteps.

Tell us: Did you take up your father's profession? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Guests:

Dr. Joshua Ammerman, neurosurgeon at Washington Neurological Associates. Both his father and grandfather were also neurosurgeons.
