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

A couple of weeks ago I emailed the offices of David Shepherd, the MLA for Edmonton-Center, the reason being was that he recently made a speech during the Black Lives Matter rally held on July 8th, giving a voice to People of Color in Edmonton and throughout Canada. His speech was interesting and thought provoking, but I knew that he also spoken out about his struggle and barriers surrounding his own mental health, something that might be seen as weak for a politician, but in his words they are as liberating and strength giving as anything he could hope for.

Mr. Shepherd was happy to sit down with me and talk about his identity, politics, mental health and race.

Stick around after the interview because we’ll have some exciting news about The Modern Manhood Podcast, and other ways you will be able to be informed and enlightened.
