Modern Manhood: The Podcast

This podcast will mostly concentrate on the lives and viewpoints of many different male voices talking about their own masculinity. The biggest problem we have as males is that we don't talk about our own experiences and problems about our own manhood. And that being a man now looks a lot different that it used to be, or that we think it is.

This podcast is supported by NextGenMen (nextgenmen.ca) and the Alberta Podcast Network. You can also find it at modernmanhood.org

So how we balance being a father, a brother, a son, and an ally in the modern world? That's what I want to talk about. If you would like to be on the podcast to talk about masculinity and your experience pls email me at modernmanhoodpodcast@gmail.com

Fat. It was a word that I was called when I was a kid, and a word that I still get called, by myself. It was the constant barrage of images and messages of what it was to look like a man. I wanted to examine why as men we’re very obsessed with not being fat. And the mental gymnastics people do to justify...

In this episode, we go through a personal journey of how I am reconciling my feelings on Junot Diaz and Michael Kimmel. As well wondering how far do we take issues of "cancellation."

How do we separate the message from the man? Or do we not?

Carl Landra and Veronika Ilich join me in helping me navigate these muddy waters.
