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.

Pandemic

We recorded this episode a couple weeks into the lockdown as a somewhat unplanned and off-the-cuff conversation.

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.

Isaac is one of 7 children and the youngest boy. He grew up in a house full of love and was extremely close with his dad. He’s also a dad himself. In this episode, we talked about the influences that shaped his journey into manhood, the lessons he’s taken from his upbringing and some of…

Love, Loss and Messages to our Daughters

Jonathan Gardner grew up as a devout Christian. His upbringing at times put him at odds with the desire to fit in with his friends, sharing in their experiences and figuring out adolescence without much of a guidebook to follow. In this episode, Jonathan recounts some of his experiences growing up, being raised by a…

Sex in the Church: Part II

If you haven’t already listened to the previous episode, Sex in the Church: Part I, then I strongly recommend you do.
