Tearing down the "macho man" stereotype, one episode at a time. We don't have a problem with the macho man, if that's what you enjoy - go for it! But that's not what makes you a man. Men are defined by their character. If you want to be the kind of man people will remember, the kind of man people will think highly of when you're gone, you better be a man of virtue. We invite you to join us on that journey!
MTR 43: What Does it Mean To Be A Man and Story Time!
Well, the Man They Remember Podcast is a little over a year old now, and I thought that was a good time to stop and refresh our memory on what it means to be a man. At least what it means for us. So in this episode I'm going to give you our definition for masculinity and remind you of the 7 core virtues. But then after that I'm going to do something different. We've talked in the past about the importance of telling stories, so I wanted to do just that - tell you a story from my life.
MTR 042: Focus (Squirrel!)
Just like listening seems to be a lost art form, so does focus. We're so used to skimming that we don't read anything deeply. We can't go more than a few minutes without being distracted by our phones. The result is some pretty shallow and insignificant work. What are some simple ways we can improve our focus? Also, Ron joins us on the podcast today and fills us in on his story that started several months ago. You're going to want to hear it!
MTR 041: Sean Galla, Founder of Mensgroup.com
What do you do when the definition for masculinity you've been taught and used your whole life no longer works for you? When your idea of manhood leaves you disappointed and empty where do you go? Why is it that men have such a hard time building relationships with other men? In this episode, I have the privilege of talking with Sean Galla, the founder of mensgroup.com, a site that offers many online groups for men to be able to connect with other men for encouragement, discussion, and training. You'll hear how Sean's definition of masculinity left him with a crisis and how he had to dig deeper to find a more meaningful definition.
MTR 040: The Lost Art Of Listening
Have you ever sent someone a text, only to have them respond with a question you literally just answered in the text you just sent? We scroll through over 300 feet of media per day on social media, not to mention all the other content we are consuming. The result of this overly saturated content culture is that it seems that listening has gone the way of the dinosaur. How important is listening? How do we become better listeners? What do we communicate when we listen? Join Robby and I as we dive into the lost art form of listening.
MTR 039: Michael LaRocque
Which is more masculine? Working 17 hours a day, driving a jacked-up truck, and drinking all weekend long, or dealing with your emotional insecurities, figuring out your identity, and learning to be a better listener with your wife? On today's podcast, I'm talking with Michael LaRoque, who has 20 years of experience in construction where he earned a nationwide leadership award. He has walked through addiction, mental health, and relationship struggles nearly calling it quits with his wife Laura after 4 years. Today he's encouraging men to take charge of their lives physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually so they can be the man their partner and family need.
MTR 038: Establishing Priorities
It's one of those words we don't want to talk about. We know we tend to get them out of whack, but we'd rather not mention it. I'll pass on the guilt trip this time, thank you very much. And yet, priorities can be one of those things that keep us from being the kind of man people will remember when we're gone. So, if we want to get to the end of our lives and be able to look back with pride, we need to learn how to put the things that ought to be first, first.
