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

Today on this show, we have PhD student from the University of Waterloo in Waterloo Ontario, Harrison Oakes. Harrison studies the roles of threat and defense in prejudice (e.g., masculinity threat and subsequent homophobic behavior/cognition) and the interaction of power and status with anxiety in shaping cognition and emotion. He has also written two nationally-disseminated teacher’s guides for bullying awareness. Harrison is a gay male, and I had the pleasure of recording him for the show twice. The first time though, the audio was lost. But Harrison graciously agreed to do it again, and we had a great chat that was filled with information and theory and just great stories that I had to split it into two shows. So next week, you’ll get a bonus MMP with the second part of this convo, lucky you!
