"You have to be your own daddy, okay? You're out there, there are these other critters. They will kick your ASS if you are not your own daddy. Your dad will not save you." - An excerpt from Be Your Own DaddyBe Your Own Daddy is a self-help book and audiobook written and performed by 8BBC host Brian Murphy. The book focuses on not having to rely on others and to take control of your own life. "Daddy" is used to describe a person in control, "critter" is used to describe gatekeepers and those who want to put you down. The book has been described as "hard to understand" due to it's large amount of Sonic the Hedgehog references, but audiences still find that the general cadence gets them really motivated.
