Raising daughters as a single dad - particularly tween and teen daughters - provides a whole unique set of challenges. A new book, "But Dad!" aims to help single dads navigate everything from cliques to dating to puberty.

Navigating a teenage girl's experiences and emotions can be tough on parents, and sometimes overwhelming for single fathers. There are cliques and crushes, dating, puberty, hormones and eating disorders to contend with. We talk to the authors of a new book written to help single dads navigate all of this: "But Dad! A Survival Guide For Single Fathers Of Tween And Teen Daughters." Gretchen Gross is a licensed clinical social worker and adjunct professor at UVM, and Pat Livingston is a retired nurse practitioner who worked for over 20 years at the women's health clinic at UVM

Also on the program, on the tenth anniversary of the Dartmouth Jewish Sound Archive, we talk with its founders, Alex Hartov and Lewis Glinert, about the treasure trove of music, comedy and spoken word recordings collected at Dartmouth College.
