Julian is an accomplished marriage and family therapist from Berkley California. Julian is gaining notoriety with his video series highlighting simple do’s and don’ts of relationships and parenting. He runs a site called fullfrontalfatherhood.com and frequently contributes to greatdad.com, pregnancymagazine.com, and thegooddadproject.com. Being a dad himself he speaks with direct experience and wisdom dropping simple nuggets for all to put into action.
In this episode, Julian enlightens us all with some absolutely incredible insight into what it is to be a dad and how the societal gender programming of men (mixed with our stubbornness and ego- of course) actually perpetuate common “new family” woes. I’m guessing; like me, you too fell into some of these very common scenarios.
That’s exactly why I HAD to have him on the Podcast- he’s obviously a wealth of information and wisdom. Don’t think that just because he’s an MFT he’s got this parenting thing all dialed, nope. He’s just like the rest of us trying to figure it all out and doing the best he can failing forward. Just like you, however, he’s maximizing the wisdom of others in this quest and now you can tap into his wealth of experiences.
Join us for what it means to be human, the parenting manual, the bumbling father stereotype, nobody is perfect and of course the greatest American hero. But the real nugget is how Julian demystifies and delineates an extremely common relational breakdown that every guy is pre-programmed to fall into… Cue Admiral Ackbar, “Its a trap!”

Founder of the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory Philippe Morgese joins me this week for yet another great episode of We RAD DADS podcast. Phil is a great dad and has successfully found a way to work his life around his daughter and work his way into a full-custody type of arrangement. Through The Daddy Daughter Hair Factory Phil and his daughter have been featured on dozens of media outlets including ABC, CBS, NBC, The Doctors, Fab Life with Tyra Banks, people.com, The History Chanel, MTV, Popsugar, Unworthy and even Australia’s “The Morning Show”
Join us in our conversation where Phil breaks down his bomb and his eventual recovery with bullet-proof resilience and determination to be the best possible dad he can be. Through incredible struggle, odds and with absolute grit he is truly a champion for change and the face of what is possible for ANY dad to become. Phil didn’t allow social stigmas, his situation or even his own inner hater to dissuade him from his mission and all that hard work has eventually paid off. Phil went from having zero time with his daughter to having her full-time- and he went about it WITHOUT the court systems. I’m truly humbled by Phil as he breaks down the amazing circumstances he faced and how far he has come. Truly, Phil is a RAD DAD!
Reward yourself with the wisdom he constantly drops throughout this episode and see him for the stellar guy he truly is. As if that weren't enough, he went on to create the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory inspiring fathers to challenge themselves by stepping out of their comfort zones- just as Phil himself has done in his pursuit of being a professional dad. You may be interested to know that Phil doesn’t make a single dime teaching dads about bonding with their daughters by learning how to do hair. THIS is the kind of guy Phil is and I'm so honored to have him on. Won’t you join us?
