Getting Real About Manhood

Episode 68 of The Path to Authenticity is the first installment in a series about manhood with co-host Ed Tilton. It’s the beginning of what we think is an important conversation. We talk about the need for us, as a society, to become grounded in reality about manhood and to rethink how it is we define it. We explore the role of emotions in the modern masculine landscape and ponder how we ever got to this place where so many men deny their emotional experience. We discuss clear examples of how denying negative emotions, namely fear, plays out in the public square. We question whether a sensitive man is actually what a woman wants. Finally, we talk about why this is so important to us and how we see it as a platform for building a much-needed community.

The Path to Authenticity is a podcast for people looking for more from life. It focuses on emotional wellness and starts from the premise that our true power comes from our individuality. We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait.  They’re people who know who they are.  We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.
