Can A Relationship Be Repaired After Infidelity?

12/1/2022
My opinion is yes, but it's NOT easy. Most (if not all) of us will experience some form of infidelity or betrayal over the course of our relationship history. Shouldn't we pay more attention to even the possibility of repair, as well as learn ways of repairing effectively? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Dr. Nicholas Brüss - A Deep Dive Into Psychedelics, Part 1

11/28/2022
I met Nick recently at a social function, and his gentle, heavily researched, and welcoming approach to topics psychedelics, internal family systems therapy, and more was deeply edifying. So I've asked him to come on the show for two longer episodes. Part 1 is about the fears and worries people can have around psychedelic experiences, and an overview of how they work and what their potential is. If you've ever been interested in this field, now's your chance to get in on the ground...

Defining Purpose

11/24/2022
You see (and read, and hear) a LOT about purpose. What it is, where to find it, yada yada yada. I'm not so sure purpose is that easily defined. I'm not convinced it's something you can even find. Why? You'll just have to listen in. Did you enjoy the podcast? If so, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or Podchaser.

Men's Work Session - Healing The Masculine Within

11/22/2022
I want to begin by saying how grateful I am for each and every man who steps into these sessions. This can be difficult, uncomfortable, painful work. My guest this week came to me struggling with confidence and self-worth, which was (as we found out) connected to his father's anger. Listen in. Did you enjoy the podcast?

What Every Man Should Know About Sex

11/17/2022
Specifically, about how his nervous system handles sex. Continuing on the theme this week—first Dr. Laurie Watson and now my own work. I've asked this question at men's weekends, in coachings, and the answer almost always surprises me. A lot of men know the very, very basics of arousal in their own bodies, but that's...it. Let's change that. Did you enjoy the podcast? If so, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or Podchaser. It helps us get into the ears of new...

11/14/2022
Sex is where so many couples' abilities to communicate, be vulnerable, be expressive, and navigate each other's needs gets tested. Now, this can be a great thing—it can also be where things fall apart. This week, I sat down with Dr. Laurie Watson to get her insight on some of the bigger challenges men and couples face sexually: sexless marriages, expressing your desires effectively, and the straight-up differences in how men and women approach sex. This was a thoroughly enjoyable...

This Is The Most Valuable Masculine Trait—Arguably

11/10/2022
This is kind of a two-partner. I wanted to talk a little more about the idea of "toxic masculinity" and what that term does in practice to men—and why it does those things. Secondly, I want to bring what I think is an incredibly misunderstood masculine trait. It's not necessarily any of the classical ones like "strength" or "rationality". It's also something that requires cultivation, nuance, and respect for the world. Listen in. Did you enjoy the podcast? If so, please leave us a review...

Men's Work Session - The Weight Of A Parent's Depression

11/7/2022
We all know intellectually that more than genetics gets passed down. Behaviors, opinions, and traumas can get transferred too. How it manifests, though, can be very different for every individual. In this anonymous men's work session, my guest and I work with the weight of a parent's past trauma. For the parent, it was depression and rejection of her partner's affection, but for my guest, it's become something different. Listen in. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Three Feminine Archetypes Men Are Drawn To

11/3/2022
Let me preface this by defining what I mean by "archetype": a framework that works well for looking at certain patterns and traits. As far as I can tell, these three archetypes work together, and they're also three major archetypes men tend to fall for. Often unconsciously. What also happens is men can get stuck or fixated on one of them in a relationship, and this can lead to complications. This episode (sort of!) inspired by Jill Scott's I'm Not Afraid:...

Four Finance Lessons I Wish I'd Learned Earlier

10/27/2022
I was chatting with a friend and he asked me: what am I going to teach my son about money? Big question. Because when I was kid, I wasn't taught very much, and the lessons I DID learn didn't work out too well. So after reflecting, here are four lessons I wish I'd learned a long time ago—one's I'll definitely be teaching my son. Did you enjoy the podcast?

Andrew Tate: Why Him, And Why Now?

10/20/2022
Just the mention of him is enough to set Reddit threads on fire, and it's understandable why. But I want to talk about what many of us are ignoring or distracted from: how a person like Tate gets attention—and why. Think whatever you want of him, but he's a symptom of some larger issues. Here is my reaction to a clip of his, and some thoughts on what those larger issues might be. Did you enjoy the podcast? If so, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or Podchaser.

Wim Hof - Breathe, Motherf***er

10/17/2022
There are moments in the podcast life that aren't just a highlight, they straight-up blow your mind. Wim Hof has been an inspiration for me and many friends and men I've worked with for years now. I finally got him on the show to talk about what led to him discovering cold immersion therapy and breathwork, what happens to the body and the nervous system during breathwork or when you're feeling fear, its effects on inflammation, and the ultimate purpose of men. Do. Not. Miss. This. Also, in...

I got inspired by a question from a buddy of mine: what is one of the greatest lessons we as men need to learn in the context of relationships?

Forgiveness doesn't often come easy, but it's a big part of being human. And self-forgiveness? This is something many, many men come to me with questions about.

Should Men Get Better Or Women Lower Their Expectations?

You work in coaching and stick around on social media for five minutes and you'll see variations of these questions. And a lot of vitriol alongside. It's not that simple. It never is.

Dr. Marisa Franco - The Profound Science Of Friendship

10/3/2022
Seriously, this was a fantastic and mind-opening conversation. I get asked a lot about how to make—and keep—friends, and in a world that increasingly tries to isolate us, it's more important than ever to cultivate the SKILL of making friends. Dr. Franco and I lean into how friendship impacts depression and purpose, her NYT bestselling book (which is @#$%ing good), how attachment style impacts how you perceive friends, and of course, why you should build your friend circle consciously and...
