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.
ABOUT THE GUEST: Derek Hamilton is an engineer, runner, husband, Hood to Coast volunteer, kilt wearer and none of these things at the same time. Derek and his Scottish accent joined me having never met in person. He is also one of the only guests to be a fan of the show, having listened to most episodes. Due to his sense of curiosity, Derek helped me take this conversation to places I didn't expect. Mostly, his ability to be fully present and engaged made me feel safe to open up and question my current patterns of thinking. This was truly one of my favorite episodes to date on the MMP. Listen in, send me feedback, and enjoy!
