#60: NEW – Andrew Reiner


The current model of manhood is outdated – do you agree? My guest this week is Andrew Reiner; a writer, healthy masculinity researcher & educator. In his latest book “Better Boys, Better Men – The New Masculinity That Creates Greater Courage and Emotional Resiliency” he explores how modern masculinity is harming and holding back men. In this episode we explore: Trump + toxic masculinity, what grit has to do with this all and how men simply don’t have the spaces to explore their emotions *and so much more* 

“Normative notions of masculinity don’t serve us anymore”

“Men don’t trust each other with their emotional lives”

Andrew Reiner is a professor at Towson University, where he offers the seminar “The Changing Face of Masculinity.” He has written on masculinity and men’s issues for the New York Times, the Washington Post Magazine, and Italy’s la Repubblica. His work has been featured on NPR, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, and in Men’s Health, Forbes, and The Guardian. He speaks about masculinity regularly at schools and conferences around the world.
