    Obama BONUS: Redefining Masculinity

    Obama BONUS: Redefining Masculinity

    Former President Barack Obama recently spoke with Aarti Shahani, host of WBEZ's Art of Power podcast, about masculinity in the post-Donald Trump era. Obama said society has made progress in recognizing the most toxic elements of bad behavior by men. But now he wants to flip the focus.

    “What are the positive values that we're trying to instill in our boys?” he said. “Showing compassion is not weakness. Listening is as important as talking.”

    We're bringing you this exclusive interview with the former president as a bonus to the Making Obama podcast series. Hear the former president explain his experience balancing ambition with family obligations and how he wants to expand the definition of what it means to be a man. And if you like what you hear, subscribe to WBEZ's Art of Power podcast for more conversations with people who have changed the world.

    In the lead up to Beyoncé's solo album debut, Dangerously in Love, a lot was at stake. She was hoping to break out not only as a solo artist, but as a star on multiple levels — music, endorsements and film. Along the way she’d find love, but she’d also have to battle doubt, even within the record label.

Good daytime podcast

Like the narrator's retro voice. Feels like we are in the 80s. As someone who was born in 1986, it's interesting to parallel the 'birth' of the Oprah Winfrey show with my own since I grew up watching the show but never saw early episodes. Her story is so inspiring and I think we need to be reminded how just being authenticity YOU is the best way live your life.
