EP80 - Man Up(date)

November 11 | 73min

Welcome! You’ve made it to episode 80 and whether this is your first, 28th or 80th listen, we’re glad you’re here! This episode is one of the most timely and important conversations we’ve ever had on the podcast. We sat down with Chris Wilkinson to discuss his grief in the light of his father’s death but then our conversation takes a hard right turn and we plunge into a passionate and emotional discussion on toxic masculinity! We discuss men, emotions, repression, and why phrases like “man up,” and “don’t be a pussy,” are offensive. Best of all, we chart a new path forward. This episode is a must-listen as it will help you better understand yourself and your tendencies as well as the tendencies of all the men in your life. More importantly, this episode is a call to action. And now that we know better, we can do better! This! Is Obstacle Course.

We discovered the importance of having a neutral perspective as it helps us understand all sides of any discussion. We took on World Politics including the EU, Brexit, and the upcoming votes in North America. We also tackled the danger of Populism, the importance of democracy, and if Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a good idea. This! Is Obstacle Course. Let’s Go!
