    It is a commonly held fact that men struggle to understand and express their feelings.
     
    And what is becoming more and more apparent for men, is that being able to talk about how we really feel actually strengthens our mental fitness, boosts our ability to cope with stress and allows us to create deep intimacy in relationships.
     
    So in this special, you’re going to hear us reflect on our own abilities to share how we feel and the resistance we come face to face within our own lives.
     
    Despite being two men, who heavily invest in our development and awareness, we still experience resistance to sharing how we really feel, for example, when we believe we have spoken openly but the people around us still feel we are holding back.
     
    Our own experiences make us realise how tough it must be for other men!!
     
    We also will cover the major pitfalls men encounter around vulnerability and tactical step you can take today to overcome your own challenges.
     
    Key Topics in this episode:⁠
     
    1* Why is #Movember important to us
    2* The Power of Speaking Vulnerably
    3* Tactical advice on sharing feelings

    In this episode, ft. special guest, Erica, from the ‘Conversations with Erica’ Podcast, we discuss our personal experiences and stories around race & dating and the lessons we’ve learned from interracial dating.
     
    There are specific challenges we experience when datings different races and cultures e.g. hearing people on dating apps who state they don’t date certain races / racial filters on apps / having tough conversations with our family / having racially charged conversations within our relationship / cultivating awareness of the different challenges we each face in an interracial relationship.
     
    This episode is great for anyone who desires to deeply understand the different problems that come up when dating different races and cultures. The road to success in such relationships is often laden with unexpected twists and turns. But its never as easy or as difficult as we assume.
     
     
    Key Topics in this episode:⁠
     
    1* The subtle racism in dating
    2* Interracial Dating
    3* Having difficult conversations about race

    | EP72: What Is Emotional Resiliency?
     
    Emotional resilience is the ability to "roll with the punches" and adapt to adversity in life without lasting difficulties; less resilient people have a harder time with stress and life changes.
     
    Emotional resilience is an important life skill for men to develop today. With mental health problems soaring it is time to dive into this topic and discover how you can bolster your emotional resilience and learn to flow with or slow down the fast pace of our world today.
     
    For this episode, we are joined by the wholehearted Alex Holmes, host of ‘Time to Talk’ podcast about which British GQ proclaimed: ‘it's just the thing to nurse your 2020-induced worries and woes’. Alex, is a prolific writer, previously writing for Daily Mail, Telegraph, Metro before becoming freelance.
     
    Alex is an advocate for good mental health and promoting emotional awareness for men. He is currently working on his debut book, Time To Talk: How Men Feel About Love, Belonging and Connection (Trigger, 2021).
     
    In our podcast, we challenge the prevailing perception of Masculinity today, which is still shaped around the idea that men are stoic creatures who are unable to express their emotions.
     
    We explore and debunk common myths about men and open a discussion on the vital importance for men to be supported in recognising the range of their own feelings and expressing themselves emotionally in society - if we, are to thrive as men during difficult and uncertain times.
     
    Key Topics in this episode:⁠
     
    1* Myths about men that keep us stuck
    2* The key challenges men face with expressing their emotions
    3* How to channel your emotions in healthy ways
