Father Knows Nothing

Rick Kaempfer was a producer for some of the biggest names in Chicago radio. But when his third son was born in 2002, a decade-long gig came to an end the following year, and his wife got a job offer she couldn’t refuse...Rick took a deep breath and dove into the deep end of the stay-at-home dad pool. His days with the boys became fodder for a column and regular blog for the Northwest Indiana Times and other publications. The hilarious and touching exploits that he wrote about for 10 years have been gathered in a book with the same name as the column, “Father Knows Nothing.”Rick Kaempfer joins us now in studio to regale us with stories and wisdom.(Flickr/JefferyTurner)
