Have We Got Beef?

We are relational human beings, and as such we often encounter conflict in our relationships. Conflict is normal, its common, but it’s not necessarily a harbinger of doom. Conflict within positive relationships between men can instil respect of each others’ differences and jovial provocation. But sometimes, conflict can result in the breakdown of relationships or lead…

More Than My Skin

When I started the Podcast, I said I wanted to reveal the inner lives of men and that while many of the men featured on the show would be black men, we wanted the stories told to resonate with all men. With the current socio-political landscape in the wake of the high-profile killings of Ahmaud…

Black Men In White Spaces

We’re in the middle of a global conversation on racism and its insidious nature. I felt moved enough to present my stories and experiences of racism on a company-wide call along with 4 of my black colleagues. Recounting my experiences and listening to my colleagues share their own was, quite frankly, traumatising and left me…

My Dad Is Stronger Than Yours

Dads play a pivotal role in our lives. Children learn how to temper their emotions and physicality through rough play with dad, and they learn how to form secure and healthy relationships through the influence of their dads. Children often idealise their dads, but as we get older, we realise their fallibility and their humanity….

Pandemic

We recorded this episode a couple weeks into the lockdown as a somewhat unplanned and off-the-cuff conversation. The intention was to talk about a different subject entirely but I wasn’t feeling particularly great and I knew a few of the guys felt similarly.  Daniel Doyley, one of the guests on this episode and the voice you…

Man Ting Uncut

Isaac Fletcher is a professional dancer and teacher, he’s a massive football fan and a regular at the gym. And if you haven’t listened to his story, Broken, But Not Destroyed (episode 7 of the podcast), then I encourage you to do so now. On Man Ting Uncut, we have raw and unfiltered conversations about…

My BFF & I

Can men and women have close friendships and it remain strictly platonic? In this bonus feature, Daniel, Andre, Maurice and I talk about being friends with the opposite sex and the impact those friendships have on our romantic relationships. If you like the podcast and want to give us some feedback, or if you want…

Interracial

My wife and I are in a cross-cultural relationship. We’re both black, but she’s of Ghanaian heritage and I was born in Jamaica. If you listened to the first episode of Marriages Behind Closed Doors, then you will have heard about some of the specific cultural challenges we faced during the engagement and leading up…

Marriages Behind Closed Doors

My wife and I have been in a relationship together for 10 years and married for almost six of those. Comparatively speaking, that’s still a very short period of time and I still have a lot to learn as a husband. We’ve had our ups and our downs, times when we’ve felt less connected and…

The Birds and the Bees

Isaac returns for this episode which also features Maurice and Chukwudi as we talk about our experiences and ideas of sex, relationships and marriage. It’s no secret that men think and talk about sex a LOT! But for most of us, we value real connections too. Love, commitment and building something greater with our partners….
