Episode 27 The Beardsmith Dad
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. www.mrbeardsmith.com You’ll probably want to follow Ryan and all of his bearded glory and you can do that by chasing the links below.
