The phrase "teenage father" may conjure up images of unreliable, uninvolved parents who are in over their heads. But if you go beyond the stereotype, a more complex picture emerges. Host Neal Conan and guests talk with and about young men, fatherhood and responsibility.

Guests:

Timothy Gonzales
*Teen dad and member of the Young Fathers Program in Denver

Anthony Pino
*Fatherhood Parenting coordinator for the Young Fathers Program in Denver

Hector Sanchez-Flores
*Senior research associate and Male Involvement Program Liaison at the Institute for Health Policy Studies in San Francisco

Rick Brown
*Coordinator of the Wise Guys Program, a teen pregnancy prevention program for adolescent males (part of the Family Life Council in Greensboro, N.C.)
