"Just stick to parenting, dude." Those are words host Doyin Richards has heard far too often.

Doyin is a best-selling author and dynamic keynote speaker, but he's mostly known for being one of America's most respected voices in the realm of modern fatherhood. For years, he only talked about neutral parenting topics like ponytails and playdates on his popular social media platforms to keep everyone happy — which worked out nicely for everyone except for him.

Eventually he decided to speak his truth and pivoted to race-relations, mental health, healthy masculinity, feminism, politics, and more. Many loved the change. Some didn't. Either way, he knew that the world isn't going to improve unless tough topics are candidly addressed.

Get ready for rants, revelations, and realness from Doyin as he tackles hot-button topics, dishes out parenting advice, and delivers strong opinions in his unique and often humorous style. And yes, he will "just stick to parenting," because all of those topics are important when it comes to raising tiny humans.

Funny, insightful, and provocative

Doyin is doin’ work!

He comes correct with the straight truth about many topics including but not limited to parenting, mental health, politics, race relations, and how grape flavor tastes like purple.

His one man show is funny, insightful, and provocative. He comes across as nothing but candid, raw, and genuine. He is using his platform and voice to speak about things that need to be addressed in today’s social and political climate.

Thank you, Doyin! Keep it up!

Common Sense Daddyism

I’ve known Doyin since his days of blogging before he broke the internet. One of the things that I enjoy reading from his blogs was how he called out the disparity between men and women when it came to parenting. Women who have done the same things for centuries don’t get any credit while men are being worshipped for doing their part in raising their children. Why is that? His down to earth demeanor makes you just want to hang out with him on a regular basis. He makes you feel like one of his buddies just casually striking up a conversation while you are out and about doing errands around town. If you loved his blog, you’ll definitely enjoy his podcast.
