Welcome to the only podcast exploring the messiness and awesomeness of masculinity and being a man over 40. Each episode we do casual chats with vulnerable and honest guys – average Joes to NY Times Best Selling Authors - about the stuff we guys have a hard time talking about, man-to-man - masculinity, sex, careers, our bodies, parenting, sexuality, failures, success, and aging - nothing is off limits.

40 Plus: Real Men Real Talk - is a short format podcast that's easy to digest, where we deep dive into one topic at a time, digging up the truth of what it’s like to be a man, instead of some contrived expectation of masculinity. We’re reclaiming manhood and our masculinity by facing our fears, making bold moves, and living life without apologies. Join us, but drop your BS, forget posturing, and let’s explore the comical dysfunctions of our lives as men 40+ years of age!

    076: Why Pride Matters For Every Man – Rick Clemons

    076: Why Pride Matters For Every Man – Rick Clemons

    It's the kick-off of LGBTQ pride month, but what does that have to do with guys over 40? Everything, even if you're not LGBTQ. Pride in who you are is affording yourself the confidence to have pride in who you are - without shame!

    I'm kicking off LGBTQ Pride month by challenging all men, regardless of sexual orientation, or gender identity, to take pride in themselves and do good in the world without ego, and cockiness.

    075: How to take the leap in to self-care and peace – Troy Love

    075: How to take the leap in to self-care and peace – Troy Love

    Men, in general, struggle with self-care. Not talking about the brushing teeth, taking showers, eating right, etc. Talking about the deeper stuff. Working with their emotions. Allowing vulnerability to show up. Admitting they don't have the answers. All of these things are an assault on our masculine ego...so to speak.

    So riddle me this grasshopper? What if men, on a daily basis, practiced deep levels of self-care, what might the world be like? Troy L Love, provides us his insights not only from a professional licensed therapist perspective, but also his perspective as a husband, father, and fellow human being. He also reminds us all that we are not alone, even when we might feel like it.

    074: Do your thing, stay young at heart – Michael Symonds

    If you are one of those guys that says, "One day I'll..." or "I'm too old to..." you need this podcast. You are never to old and someday might not come, so start that podcast, write that book, start training for that marathon. Do whatever turns you on, besides sex, and get it done now, because anything goes.

    Mike Symonds, host of the Anything Goes Project Podcast dives in with me to talk about why to many guys over 40 put their life and dreams on hold when all the have to do is to use one hour of TV watching, booze binging, or crying woe is me, and turn it into the their dream, their hobby, or their happiness.

    It's a candid, no b******t, straight-forward chat about getting off your ass and into your dream life.

    073: Vulnerability and Responsibility – Matt Ward

    073: Vulnerability and Responsibility – Matt Ward

    When COVID19 became our reality, our lives took on a whole different meaning. Many of us began thinking about life in a whole lot of new dimensions - fear, uncertainty, purpose, safety, survival, peace - no emotion left unturned.

    For many guys, including my friend and guest, Matt Ward, suddenly we felt vulnerable on a different level, maybe even first time feelings and began wondering, "How now, do I take care of my family?"

    In this candid conversation, Matt and I explore vulnerability and responsibility in the face of chaos and crisis, and how to navigate it for the good of yourself and others.

    072: How To Compete Every Day – Jake Thompson

    072: How To Compete Every Day – Jake Thompson

    Every day is an opportunity. You either compete or give up. Whether it is with yourself or the rest of the world, you GET, not HAVE to compete. Yet, many of us allow the competition in our own heads to keep us from getting what we most want in life. The goal of competition is to get you out of your comfort zone and into your best life.


    Jake Thompson, a guy who knows how to encourage, and compete, joins us today to talk about why men should compete in a healthy way with themselves and others to live their most fulfilled life. He's also going to share about his brand new book - Compete Everyday - The not so secret, secret to winning in your work and life.


    About JakeJake Thompson is a professional speaker and the Chief Encouragement Officer at Compete Every Day, a brand he started in 2011 by first selling t-shirts out of the trunk of his car.


    Jake works with organizations and individuals around the country, teaching how they can develop accountability, mental resilience, and leadership skills in order to make bigger impacts in their careers and in their life. It’s through his experience and research that he’s discovered how people who harness a competitive mindset against themselves can reach their goals, commit to action over motivation, and step into the leader they were created to be.


    Jake is a third-generation entrepreneur, the youngest strategic advisory board member at the University of Dallas’ College of Business, and a graduate of both Texas Christian University (B.S.) and University of Dallas (M.B.A.).

Authentic, Relatable, and Raw

It's so refreshing to hear real men talk about life in authentic, relatable, and raw terms. I am so sick of the usual sugar-coated podcasts. Not with Rick Clemons, though! Rick talks to men unapologetically and gets men talking. Thanks for all you do, Rick!
