The Modern Masculinity Project
Itunes dark

The Modern Masculinity attempts to redefine healthy masculinity for modern times and offer a safe space for men to practice finding strength in being vulnerable. In each episode, host Brad Pankey converses with other men openly, honestly, and vulnerably about what it means to be a man in modern society. These discussions touch on the impact of traditional masculinity, fatherhood and raising boys, relationships, addiction, women, and much more. Each episode serves as a safe space for men to simply share about life, to practice opening up, and be vulnerable around other men. The hope is to learn how men can be better allies, what in nature and nurture creates a more open and vulnerable man, and how we should define healthy masculinity for men in modern times.
