BELT: A 2-Man Memoir

Comedy Podcasts

A podcast about masculinity by Joel Tauber and Eric Wilson. Humorous man wisdom. Iconoclastic banter. Where cultural studies bangs into the locker room. Terrified men preen. But they also confess their fears, their desires. Desperate for brotherhood. We are raw, vulnerable. We voice our most intimate stories. We make sense of the forces that have shaped our manhood. Those constructs that invigorate, we embrace. The rest, we quiet. We will be better men.

How to face the negative voices and the anxiety. How to move forward and find the groove. Grace no more. Lost the groove, the stuff. It. The shot falls short. A step too slow.

Talk About Fatherhood. Where are you? Come back! Clueless fathers groan. Sons and daughters flee to the lemur pen, or the prairie dog's.

The Secrets Of Sport-Love. We are pulled between aggression and affection. Take to the gridiron. Hit him helmet to helmet. Slap his ass all friendly. Man you beat down, your new best friend. Butt-pads for the bumpy world. Better: the forward pass, spiraling tightly over gravity, and the pigskin lands light in your open hands. Take off like a scalded dog.

Man-Talk About Motors. Under the hood, we are over our pistons. Stick shift. Cylinders in the thousands. Sometimes a man's got to walk away from what drives him. So ride on the bike at the back. Schwinn. Moped. Vespa. On what muscle will you grasp the driver? This is man-talk about motors. Why do men need big trucks, when two wheels and decent balance gets you hither and yon? Hear us unhook the fan belts, figure out how we can move over the earth with light and grace, beyond the skid and...

A podcast episode about male violence. Tan the hide. Spare the rod. We etch with our awl the leather. Skin-poke. Violence bleeds from daddy to boy. Our wit sweetens the flow. Those dark voices—you are not strong enough—we hear and revise. Like when you pee, you heed the Bible on your willy. Circumscribed by circumcision. Restore the foreskin. Throw a shower party. Slip-slide away. Listen to our shower party. We don't sing, but we belt out our thoughts about how male violence gets passed from...
