“What Happened To Dad?” with Jen Senko
“Be Bold America!” Sunday, April 10, 2022 at 5:00pm (PT)
“Once upon a time, there was an average American family living in an average American town. After the family moved to a new state, the father left his carpool and began a long solo commute to work. And gradually, he began to change. He looked the same. He dressed the same. But something was very different. But this isn’t a story about just one man. It’s the story of a media phenomenon that changed a father … and divided the nation.” – Jen Senko
