Rad Dad Issue 2 is on its way...

We have sadly sold out of our 1st premiere issue that was released in January 2014 (though some distributors may still have copies!).  But we are excited to present to you Rad Dad Issue 2 to get us through the summer months. We wanted a cover to reclaim father's day from the stereotypes of mainstream fathering, to show a nurturing, loving interaction. With that said, we are so happy to present to you the cover of Rad Dad Magazine: Issue 2. Photo by Heidi Yount and design by Kyle Knobel

Rad Dad Relaunch Starts Now!

Hello Rad Dad Supporters!  Rad Dad is growing up! And I need your help to make it successful. Along with Hip Mama, Rad Dad is going to redesign its look to better reach more and more people!

Please consider getting a subscription, back issues, joint subscriptions to Hip Mama and Rad Dad, signed books, even a Rad Dad t-shirt or tote bag!

Please help spread the news: post it, share it, blog about it, twitter it, mail people about it.  I'm excited to see what will happen and I promise to keep Rad Dad "rad" as in "radical" and not "rad" as in "can we sell you something!"

And of course, please write for Rad Dad!
