EP010 - Resolutions
HAPPY NEW YEAR. We talk about the year just gone and the year ahead. And as you can probably see from the length of this episode, we ramble quite a bit. Adam's job hunting blog post. https://audioandwords.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/audio-words-5-dirty-work/ Oh and there are some Star Wars spoilers later in the episode. HAPPY NEW YEAR. AGAIN.

This week; Nick is ill, Adam is scared of boobs, Vincent Cassel has sex and we talk about loneliness. Loneliness is an increasingly common affliction in today's society and neither of us has escaped it.

EP004 - Man Up!
This week; Adam gets burgled and Nick cries at the moon before we move on to the main topic. We start with why the phrase 'Man up' and the attitude that surrounds it should be thrown away. We talk about our goals for the podcast and the feedback we've received so far. Then it evolves into a discussion of the difficulties of having difficult conversations. Stuff we talk about: In the Shadow of the Moon Alternative (still bad) phrases for 'Man up!' Gender roles Whataboutism Our goals for the...

EP002 - Depression
This week; Adam talks about work (again), Nick prepares for his first jiu-jitsu competition, and we go down a dark path discussing our histories with depression. There's a warning in the podcast about this but just a heads-up, we do talk about suicide and other pretty dark times. It's covered very sensitively and we'd like to think that it's a valuable discussion but if that's something you're uncomfortable with then maybe skip this one. If you want to talk to someone at any time then you...
EP001 - Origins
In this first episode of The Anxious Men Podcast; Nick comes out as a toe shoe wearer, Adam does some night shifts, and probably more importantly we both talk about our 'origin story'. Ugh. Yeah, we hear the wankiness too. We had to re-upload this episode after somehow missing the last 10 minutes off when passing it through our complex editing system.
