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

The Murder of George Floyd has sparked an international wave of reconsideration and doubt over many things. Many things that we may have considered as normal.

The main one has been around the idea of policing. What does policing look like in the modern world? And is it broken? And do we even need it? Questions that not only question the role of one of the most established institutions that we have, but questions that break open what systemic racism looks like in the US, Canada, and throughout the world. 

Most importantly, I have to recognize that this has been a cultural moment that started in the US. So I wanted to speak to people to John Morrison (@John_Liberator) and Josh Indy Leidy (@Indi_SRS) about not only the wave shift, the idea of police abolition, but also their fight to remove a Philadelphia acknowledgment of Frank Rizzo.
