Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

On this show, anthropologist Dr. Kermyt Anderson will lay out what the research says about fathers, stepfathers, grandparents, and how children are transformed by and transform the men who care for them.
