Casey E. Palmer

Calling the Great White North his home, Casey‘s spent the last few decades in pursuit of creating killer content. From novels as a kid, comics as a teen, to blogs and photos once he could grow a beard, he’ll use whatever’s around him to create amazing stuff.

When he’s not creating, he’s parenting, exploring and trying to make life as awesome as possible for everyone around him.

Because a boring life’s not a life worth living!

Quick Clips with Case P #0002 — Beleaf in Fatherhood and the Case for Positive Black Representation

So a lot happened at the Dad 2.0 Summit. I made new friends. Finally met up with old ones. And on top of that, I got to meet men I idolised without even realising I was doing it, like Beleaf Melanin and his beautiful family, half of which were […]

Live from the 3.5 — Fix Up, Look Sharp — Why Fashion’s So Central to the Black Canadian Experience

If Black people aren’t some of the most fashionable people on the planet, I don’t know who are! Growing up, my mother was always adamant that my brothers and I dressed our best to head out the door. As I liked to say, she’d dress up to get the paper […]

Insurance Done Right — How to Protect the People You Care About WITHOUT Selling the Farm!

It finally happened, Toronto. We thought we could dodge it and the good times would last forever. People strolled around in the middle of December with their coats wide open, not caring that the calendar marked toboggan season. I saw people still mowing their lawns in late November—a time […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — The Road to Dad 2.0 and BEYOND.

And then in January 2018, I went and hit a wall. I looked good on paper. I’d just finished my best year yet as a blogger, already looking to take things a step farther with a retooled Tales from the 2.9. And adulting was alright, too—I had the […]

Live from the 3.5 — Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours — Modern Black Love and What it Looks Like

“Why couldn’t you find yourself a nice Black girl to settle down with?” — an older Black woman who I’d met on the streetcar Frankly, I couldn’t believe I still heard this in 2017 in Toronto of all places, but there it was without a hint of sarcasm in […]

Getting a Good Dose of Shuteye Thanks to Pampers Baby Dry!

Let’s be real—every parent dreams of the day they aren’t dealing with diapers anymore. I mean, you get all sorts of kids in those early years—the ones totally okay wearing a soiled diaper even though it’s clearly not a good idea. The ones who freak out over a wet diaper, […]

We Don’t Die; We Multiply — Tales from the 2.9, Year 3 — Live from the 3.5!
