Typography Beard Guide

Short, tall, big or skinny, it doesn’t matter the size or shape every bearded gent has to admit that they love their facial hair. Your facial hair can be a mark of great honor or the fodder of many family dinner dis sessions. Either way, whether others love it or hate it, you still hold fast to those whiskers.

In honor of all of our bearded dads (and if you’re like me, Paul, a wanna be bearded dad), we’ve brought on the national expert in beard-dom, Mr. Beardsmith. That’s right, we search the inter-webs to find the most reliable source on all things beards and dad life. Since that person wasn’t available, we asked Ryan Smith to join the podcast. Just joking Ryan.

Mr. Beardsmith, Ryan, shares with us the joys and challenges of being a bearded dad. From scaring kids to allowing his beard to be the test ground for his daughter’s stylist aspirations. Ryan also shares some tips on how to move from just have a thing on your face to have a beard that will bring out jealousy among the un-bearded, respect among the bearded and swooning among the ladies.


After you listen, you’ll want to take advantage of Ryan’s special 15% off offer to all of our Random Dads. Now, through the end of 2017, listeners can use code BESTDAD to save %15 off their entire order from my website.

Well this is it #RandomDads This episode we’re taking you behind the curtain and letting you in on why Jacob and Paul are so messed up. It’s because both of them were raised free range style. That’s right. Those wild kids you hated grew up and the results….we’ll leave that judgment up to you.


Now these two Random Dads have to decide, along with their spouses, what they are going to do with their kids. To be free rangers or to be helicopters, those seem like the extremes, which is where Random Dads like to take things. Listen in for a little bit of parenting joy and a whole lot of “how not to do it” advice.

Paul sits down with the talented Matt Cremona of YouTube fame! Matt describes himself as a dad who makes videos about woodworking on the internet. Random indeed!

Listen in as Matt shares the benefits and struggles of being both a full time entrepreneur and dad. If you’re a dad who is an entrepreneur or thinking about diving into that world, Matt’s real world experience will give you a perspective on what to expect when you make the move or how you might tweak what you’re doing.

Jacob and Paul are back! After a long break following season 1, the team is back at with a hot topic, discipline. The guys waxes philosophically and ponder, “To spank or not to spank? That is the question.” Comment with your perspective on the topic. Are you pro spanking or do you practice alternative discipline methods?


If you’re interested in digging more into different disciplining techniques, we’ve found these resources helpful.
