Hollywood Heavy Robert Patrick on Being the Terminator and a Dad

On the newest episode of The Fatherly Podcast, host Joshua David Stein talks with legendary Hollywood heavy Robert Patrick, best known for his role as the villainous T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Patrick rose to fame squaring off against Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the Georgia-raised son of an engineer started out as a house painter before finding his passion for acting. A father of two, he's portrayed a handful of famous dads onscreen, including both Johnny Cash's and Elvis's, and he opens up on the episode about his parenting philosophy, his struggles with alcoholism, and his deep, deep American roots.

Later in the episode, our science editor drops some insight on why a gravelly voice like Patrick’s is so damn trustworthy, and why deep pitches seem to help politicians do better at the polls. Plus, how does that change as people get older?

Listen to parenting advice from the T-1000 himself and tune in each Tuesday for a brand new episode of The Fatherly Podcast.
