Discussing masculinities and challenging ideas of what it means to be a man. Hosted by Ashley Thomson, founding editor of Homer.
Men's Violence Against World
Examining 'Men in Focus', a very impressive new report by Our Watch which synthesises everything studies of men and masculinities have to say about preventing men's violence. And which had the unfortunate effect of clarifying everything such studies fail, and may in fact be unable, to think about.
The Irish, Man
Nostalgic for riffs on patriarchy as an insitutional force, we end up in analysis of Martin Scorsese's excellent new film 'The Irishman' and mob movies generally.
Movember, for Steve
I'm no good with kids, I'm very good with dogs, I like my Bojack and I reckon Movember may be a rort. Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/homeronline
Ode to Irresolution
I, the undersigned, swear never to seek to impose order on a fundamentally disordered world, thereby to manufacture an artificial sense of control at the expense of my humanity, and will instead live in fruitful acknowledgment of the universe's innate irresolution. Or, a carefree gambol through the interconnectedness of September 11, (Kelly Bachman vs) Harvey Weinstein and toxic masculinity.
Customer ReviewsSee All
Feels like having a conversation with your smart and funny friend about what they have been grappling with recently. Ash has this incredible ability to articulate the things that have been half sloshing around my head but refusing to form into a coherent thought. Keep up the great work! I’m particularly enjoying the new format.
The presenters give very well articulated arguments in discussions that never patronise, judge or assume anything about their audience or wider masculinity. Great show, highly recommend.
Thought provoking and ever entertaining.
