On todays episode I am joined by writer, philosopher plus Senior Editor of the new magazine Compact, along with author of the book What Do Men Want? Nina Power. Never before has the the spotlight been on men in the way it currently is. What we do, what we don't do, how we behave.

The way in which contemporary feminism isn't anything like the feminism she grew up with in the 90's. Why people are encouraged to put labels on men right now and how the fear around men isn't based in reality. The feminisation of society into a 'mean girls' environment where traditional masculine things are scoffed at.

1/21/2022
Today I talk about how we are called to things in life and what it requires of us. My guest today is bestselling author and host of the Veteran State of Mind Podcast, along with Iraq and Afghanistan Vet - Geraint Jones There is an old saying along the lines of "oh they were an overnight success" except what people don't often see is the many years before hand that it took to get to that point.

On todays episode Geraint and I discuss: His childhood fascination with books being one of the last of the pre-digital generation. The rituals he gets into so he can get into the writing zone daily. Why being in Iraq and Afghanistan gave him a rich tapestry of life events from which to draw inspiration. The importance of being able to put in the reps day in, day out in order to achieve mastery.

Today I am joined by two friend (and also Dads) from South East London who liked listening to podcasts, and liked talking so decided to start their own podcast called Dad's What I'm Talking About - Nathan and Bobby. One of the most popular misconceptions leveled at men is that they don't talk about how the feel.

JOHN BARRY: Inside the Mind of Man and Male Psychology

1/6/2022
Today I speak to Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, Honorary Lecturer in Psychology at University College London, Clinical Hypnotherapist and author of The Book Perspectives in Male Psychology – John Barry PhD. With mental health and specifically male mental health under the spotlight like never before its a hot topic of discussion. Rates of male suicide are still high and the challenge of how to address mental health problems in men prevail. But what if we were to take a different and unique approach as to how we address the difficulties men face? One that is specific to the needs of men? John and I discuss: How men's studies and social reconstructionists view masculinity as a social construct that needs "fixing" rather than embracing the inherent and unique differences in men. Why men are drawn towards methods of therapy that are more solution based and rational rather than going continuously over their feelings. The problem of psychologists trying to blame and train masculinity out of men. Gamma Bias and how it highlights the accolades of women whilst ignoring the same achievements of men. The massive importance of valuing dads, their involvement in a child's upbringing and the benefits of mum and dad being present in a child's upbringing.
