About Men Radio is a show about men. Not all men, mind you, but specifically about a group of lifelong friends coping with rapidly changing gender roles and how they interact with their partners, their kids, their co-workers and each other. We post periodically but each episode is funny, feisty and very, very real.

Father’s Day: The Afterthought Hallmark Holiday
On this episode we salute all the hardworking — and the lazy-ass — Dads out there.
Talkin' Mother's Day
Ah, Mother's Day. That day of the year that brings with it a mixture of guilt, apprehension, obligation and confusion. You know: The essential ingredients of any familial relationship.
For Pedro and Chris, the relationships with their mothers are fraught with baggage -- some more than others. In Chris's case, it's more the size of carry-on luggage. And with Pedro...well, let's size it up as a steamer trunk.
And having the bombardment of commercial messages from retailers, florists, online advertisers and the media about the importance of Mother's Day does not help.
Should we, as sons, act out of a sense of obligation? Shouldn't we be honoring our mothers all year-round?
Do we automatically owe them our respect and love because, let's face it, they gave birth to us, wiped our asses when we were little and put up with our nonsense for lo these many years? How do we define the relationships with our mothers as sons and adult men and fathers ourselves?
Well, we dive into all of that in this latest episode of About Men Radio. Give a listen and tell your friends.
And by the way, would it kill you to call your mom just once in a while?
Facebook Does a Faceplant and We’re Paying the Price
Farmville. Mafia Wars. Poking friends. Ah, Facebook. Not that many years ago it seemed so innocent and harmless. Taking online quizzes about which Harry Potter character I was? Checking in with the locations of places I visited? Sharing personal details of my day-to-day life? Of course! Why not? What could possibly go wrong? Fast-forward to … Continue reading Facebook Does a Faceplant and We’re Paying the Price →

There is a kitchen magnet I have that boasts about drinking coffee: “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” Yeah, it’s a similar feeling I have about retirement. I’ll retire when I’m dead. When you are in your 20s, retirement, pensions, 401(k) and Social Security are a foreign language. Saving for when I’m in my 60s? Pshaw! … Continue reading Retirement? Hahahahaha! →

Putting Fitness Back on Our Menu
Let’s be honest: Our attempt in 2016 to launch the About Men Radio Fitness Challenge — in which members of the posse pledged to improve our eating and exercise habits — collapsed quicker than a football handled by Tom Brady. But wait! Brady recently came up in a conversation between Chris and Pedro, and it … Continue reading Putting Fitness Back on Our Menu →

Just listened to the most recent episode, detailing the escapades of the various knuckleheads, and found myself actually snorting with laughter as I walked down the sidewalk, hearing about the aerosol cans going into the incinerator. Keep it up!
You may as well call them godzilla of podcasting, their episodes are so epic!
I kid. Naming the review "turgid" because they called me out on an episode about it. Great interaction with each other and their listeners.
Not only for men, kind of like the hair club, but more like listening in at a barber shop.
Enjoy the fun banter and chop busting but also find the serious topics to be informative. These guys are like the friends in your own old neighborhood -- fun to hang out with and share memories and stories.
