Men and Friendship

Guests: Kyle Adams, Jeremiah Bakk and Robb Erickson

[19:54] - 

Guys need friends, too. But men tend to build friendships differently than women do, and going deep in them can often be a challenge. What works and what doesn't? How do you know if you're being a good friend, and how as a man can you cultivate friendships that go the distance? Three guys share their insight.

The Manual to Manhood

Guests: Jonathan Catherman

[20:42] - 

Guys like to have skills and accomplish things. But many guys didn't grow up with fathers and grandfathers to show them the ins and outs of being a man. Even the simplest of "guy tasks" like tying a tie or grilling a steak weren't modeled. And when it comes to leadership, character and relating to women, many men feel even more ill-equipped. Don't worry: Jonathan Catherman, author of The Manual to Manhood and a mentor to men, opens the discussion on what it means to be a man and how to cultivate a mindset that inspires courage and conviction.
