ABOUT THE GUEST: Tommy Freeland is a son, brother, uncle, jeweler, and my plutonic soulmate. Residing in Anacortes, WA, Tommy helps operate his family business while also finding the time to be an incredible and loving friend. There isn't much to say here about Tommy because we cover EVERYTHING from childhood to our current pseudo-adult state. Part one of my chat with Tommy covers our childhood, while part two covers the late teenage to adult years. Here, like all of our conversations, Tommy and I chat with ease and vulnerability. Settle in and enjoy!
TOPICS COVERED: Part one of a two part episode: How parenting style influenced us as men, when we first thought about our masculinity, when we first tried to masculine up for other guys, and we share a lot about growing up as close friends.
BONUS THOUGHTS IN OPEN: I take a moment to check in with myself and explore how I am feeling given the current refugee crisis at the border.
