Before starting This American Life, Ira Glass reported for NPR. For Father’s Day, in 1986, he took to New York City’s streets to ask passers-by, “What did you learn from your father?”  There are some gems here that run the gamut from basics like learning how to tell time to indirect instruction in cursing. Have a listen and see if you can pick up some new tips from these dads.
