Toxic Masculinity w/ Briggon Snow

Sad Boyz is a comedy podcast about feelings. Every week we take an emotionally resonant topic and open up while somehow making it funny. Today we're talking about masculinity (specifically toxic masculinity) and we're joined by the wonderful Briggon Snow, actor, and voice of Caleb on the Bright Sessions.

This is the first video episode of Sad Boyz, but don't worry, our sweet audio babies, you're still our first love. Today we're talking about self-esteem and self-confidence.

Also in this episode, Jordan has finally listened to Hamilton and we get his first reaction.



Today on Sad Boyz we're talking about our careers! Jarvis has worked primarily as a software engineer professionally and Jordan is in business development, but does it define them and their future?

Also in this episode, Jordan...


Pen Palz Spectacular

Today is a special day in Sad Boyz history. We're doing a mailbag episode! We've gotten a bunch of pen palz lately, so we thought we'd spend a topic reading some.

We also recommend a few shows! Also in this episode, we have a world shattering pen...

Today the boyz are still in total burnout mode (turns out these things don't fix themselves in a week) and we talk about guilt: Our catalysts for guilt and how we cope once that cat's out of the bag. Guilt can be a pragmatic tool that keeps us self-aware. That is, as long as you're not crippled by it (i'm looking at you, Jarvis). Also there's a new "trash update" which is quickly becoming the most consistent thing about the show, we announce a new segment, and justin timberlake released...



Jarvis and Jordan are at wit's end. They're doing too much, burning the candle at both ends—but the show must go on.

2018 Predictions

It's 2018, so naturally the Nostradami (that's the plural of Nostradamus if you were wondering) hazard some optimistic (and pessimistic) guesses about what will happen in the new year. But first, we give a brief history of the Lonely Island because of course we do, we do some shoutouts to our amazing listeners, and Jarvis talks about how crappy it feels to promote his stuff (which reminds me please leave us a review on itunes) In the topic, we discuss (without spoiling our predictions)...
