We are LIVE!

We need your support to continue publishing in 2015. Spread the word, and re-up your subscription!




Summer 2014





Letter from the Editor

We need your help! Let me be transparent. As of June 1, 2014, we have 276 people who have subscribed for the 3 issues we will make in 2014. In order to consider going forward in 2015, we need to have each one of them re-subscribe and get at least another additional 700 subscribers as well. I share this with you not to be dire but to encourage you to help us spread the word and also to remind you to enjoy what you hold in your hands. Because everything changes and grows. I feel this acutely as my youngest is entering her final year of high-school. It is a reminder to be present. Put down your phone and pick up your child. Enjoy RAD DAD today. Creating this issue was a blessing. It had me laughing and wanting to hug my children tightly. It made me thankful to be a part of this amazing community of radical parents.

Spring 2014




Letter from the Editor

Just to be clear: RAD DAD is not about being cool; it’s not about being hip, not about trying to be in style, not a trend. RAD DAD is for radical parenting. The uncomfortable kind. The difficult kind. Radical as in not complacent, as in conscious and conscientious of our impact on our children, our partners, our environment. Radical as in taking responsibility for the privileges some of us have, whether we want those privileges or not. Radical as in being cognizant of how we challenge patriarchy (or not), how we impact those around us, how we might depend on unquestioned roles of authority and hierarchy. And then, radical as in having the courage to consider new ways of fathering.
With that said, I fight the urge to call this a failure right from the start. I realize how proud I am of the work we all did, the writers and designer and the collective in raising money and gathering voices, managing all the craziness that goes into creating a project that strives to be both vulnerable and militant, political and humorous but most of all welcoming. As editor, I see the glaring omissions; I fret over issues or ideas or experiences we didn’t include. I’m terrified of typos! But here it is; I hope it moves you, inspires you, reminds you that you are not alone. So if being a Rad Dad is (as I remind myself over and over) an action not a label, then perhaps the magazine is like a process rather than a product. So help us…write to us, tell us what we got wrong, provide us with stories, connect us with people or projects or zines or bands or community actions!
