We share parenthood news from around the internet, we feature exclusive interviews you won’t find anywhere else and we tackle important issues within the fatherhood community. We even blog about our own personal stories of triumph and sadness.

Bryan grew up in the cool shade of a California orange tree in the San Fernando Valley. He spent his adolescent years in pursuit of music performing with his band at Hollywood clubs and a handful of states. He has been featured in Tattoo Magazine and the Ventura County Star for recording a “live” album in his own home, broadcasting a feed every night for people to listen and watch as it evolved. He currently spends his days with research scientists.
His daughter was born in September 2010.

Zach grew up under a nearby orange tree in California’s San Fernando Valley. He has worked at publications such as Filter Magazine, Geek Monthly Magazine, UNleashed Magazine, WYWS Magazine,The Los Angeles Sentinel (“the largest Black-owned newspaper on the West Coast”), and also worked on His Side with Glenn Sacks (“The largest mens’ and fathers’ issues radio show in America” in 2001).
His son was born in January 2009.
Justin grew up in a distant dusty exurb of Los Angeles. He wrestled in high school and helped raise goats and chickens on his parent’s novelty breeding farm. He spent six years in the Army as a linguist and finished college, where he learned how to read very unsympathetically and also how to criticize smart people.
His son was born a little while ago, his other son was born a little before that. Recently, him and his wife added a daughter.
Richard graduated from Western Washington University in 1995 with an MA in writing; he and his family live near Woodinville, WA. He is Dad to 9-year-old Anna and 7-year-old Alex, both of whom work tirelessly to keep him on his toes and test his knowledge.
Tom is a 10-year veteran at an educational publishing company and has been a writer and/or contributing editor for pop culture sites like UGO.com, MovieRetriever.com, TheDeadbolt.com, and HollywoodChicago.com. Most recently, he founded BuildingaLibrary.com – a website devoted to helping parents find the right books for their kids.
Remy grew up on MTV in the 80′s in rural America until joining the military at 17. When his first son was born, his world flipped, and he left the military. His feminist wife Cait beat Lymphoma, and somewhere along the way, home-birthed his daughter and second son. Remy recently sold 98% of his belongings to take Cait and two of his three kids on the adventure of a lifetime.
Nick is a dad and avid gamer. He writes about psychology, games, and the psychology of games. Nicholaus received a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Yale University, and works as a developmental psychologist at the University of Michigan, but he learned the most important lesson in life early: Don’t play Contra with your older brother, because he’ll jump in a pit just to make you angry.
Justin is father to two girls, husband to one wife and the teacher to several dozen students. He is an accomplished cook, acceptable baker, passionate lover, amateur astrophysicist, and avid kilt wearer. You can read more of Justin’s parenting adventures on his blog: http://mraion.blogspot.com.
Huckleberry Starnes is an artist and industrial designer, who after working for clients like NASA, The Smithsonian Institution, CIA, FBI, and the U.S. Military, took on the role of stay at home dad. He wants to help other dads maintain their geek lifestyle while being a positive role model, a supportive partner, and cool dad. Huckleberry has one kid who still has that “new baby smell,” and another one on the way. You can follow his other stories on his blog: http://rulethegalaxy.tumblr.com.
