Episode 706 - Andrew McCarthy is a First Class Father and Legendary Hollywood Actor.  He is well known for his movie roles in Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo's Fire, Weekend at Bernie's, and Less than Zero.  He was a charter member of Hollywood's Brat Pack. That iconic group of ingenues and heartthrobs included Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, and Demi Moore.  Andrew McCarthy is a New York Times Bestselling Author of a memoir; “Brat: An '80s Story”. 

He now has a brand new book available just in time for Father’s Day; “Walking with Sam: A Father, a Son, and Five Hundred Miles Across Spain”.  When Andrew McCarthy's eldest son began to take his first steps into adulthood, McCarthy found himself wishing time would slow down. Looking to create a more meaningful connection with Sam before he fled the nest, as well as recreate his own life-altering journey decades before, McCarthy decided the two of them should set out on a trek like few others: 500 miles across Spain's Camino de Santiago.

In this Episode, Andrew shares his Fatherhood Journey which includes three children.  He discusses why he decided to take the 500 mile trek across Spain with his son Sam and what he took away from the journey.  He describes how becoming a father at 39 years old changed his perspective on life.  He talks about his son Sam’s reaction to reading his Memoir, BRAT: AN 80’s STORY.  He discusses his feelings about his kids getting involved in show business.  He describes what he hopes his legacy will be as a father.  He offers some great advice for new or soon-to-be dads and more!
