The Imperfect Pod is a podcast for discussing masculinity more intentionally and purposefully. Masculinity is in a weird place in society as men try to understand the difference between toxic and healthy masculinity. This podcast will engage with humans of all ages, races, genders and beliefs to share their ideas of masculinity to try and create a better understanding. What I want to leave my listeners with after every episode is that there isn't this one-size-fits all idea of masculinity, nor is their an easy solution to understanding your manhood in today's landscape. Topics of this show include parenting, fatherhood, relationships, porn addiction, sex, gender, toxic masculinity, growth, addiction and much more.

    Sexual violence in society has gone down 60% in the last several years but there's still more work to be done. Whether that's from more male allyship, discussing it on a wider scale, stopping it when you see it happen or just changing your own behavior, the fact that this reprehensible act is still so prevalent is awful. On this episode, Tim Mousseau and I discuss everything sexual assault.

    Finding his identity as a human and man after his sexual assault
    Why the way we talk about sexual assault in society is wrong
    Why sexual violence as a crime can be hard for people to understand
    How changing the way we talk about sexual violence will change our reaction to it
    Why statistics about sexual assault only get us so far in the conversation
    Understanding who should be handling sexual assault cases and how the system needs to do better by victims
    Looking at sensitivity training and why it’s important
    What laws are emerging that can help direct us to a better understanding of how sexual violence permeates different areas of society
    What we can do to start engaging in conversations both as bystanders and within our communities
    Why we need to look at the data and methodology of the research being done on these topics

On top of this, Tim had to manage the stresses of workplace sexual harassment from his boss who used knowledge of Tim’s trauma to exert toxic control. Coming to terms with his experience, Tim recognized how it left him feeling powerless. He vowed no one else should ever feel the same way. For the last nine years, Tim has spoken with over 400 organizations including members of the United States Congress, top universities, and Fortune 500 companies across the world on the topics of sexual violence and harassment prevention. Tim’s research currently centers on how individuals set and maintain safety boundaries, along with a study on how to better engage men in sexual violence prevention work.
