NINA POWER - What Do Men Want And Does This Reflect What We Are All Being Told?
On todays episode I am joined by writer, philosopher plus Senior Editor of the new magazine Compact, along with author of the book What Do Men Want? Nina Power.
Never before has the the spotlight been on men in the way it currently is. What we do, what we don't do, how we behave. A picture is being painted about how the average man acts and thinks but does this ring true with reality? What do men have to say about this? I discuss with Nina just where we go from here and what the future holds for relations between men and women.
We delve into:
How Nina was inspired to write the book because of the growing divisions in society between men and women that didn't ring true with her reality.
The way in which contemporary feminism isn't anything like the feminism she grew up with in the 90's.
Why people are encouraged to put labels on men right now and how the fear around men isn't based in reality.
The feminisation of society into a 'mean girls' environment where traditional masculine things are scoffed at.
How men and women can live together harmoniously and move away from the infantilised culture that has taken hold.
AMA 002: The "Nice Guy Epidemic", What is Toxic Masculinity, Mens Mental Health Memes and Modern Parenting
In this "Ask Me Anything," Joe Horton and Coach Mac field questions from members of the Guild of Dads Facebook Group & Guild of Dads Social Media Channels. They cover why too many men are 'nice guys' these days, whether 'toxic masculinity' is a thing, the usefulness of men's mental health memes and be merits of modern parenting methods.
STEVEN WADE - How To Flip The Script on Family Break Up
On todays episode I am joined by Dad and founder of Family Law Assistance – Steven Wade
Having had personal experience of divorce and family break up Steve is well placed to help others going through the same and understands the emotional upheaval that it creates. More importantly he also realises that it can be a prime opportunity to really reassess your life, where it is going and make some changes which may be long overdue.
We delve into:
How Steve had to relocate and undergo a complete career change in the years following his divorce to reach a point where he now helps others going through the same ordeal
The effective tactical strategies you can employ to ensure you come away with the best result.
How shifting your mindset to one of empowerment and ownership can radically change your prospects of seeing your children and moving on from divorce in the years after.
Why the courts and solicitors are not as scary as you think and the simple steps to take to ensure you show up as the dad the court want's to see.
The importance of forgetting what you want and prioritising what's in the best interests of your children.
AMA 001: Dad Jokes, Pursuing Your Own Interests, Sexless Marriages, Getting Down
In our first-ever "Ask Me Anything," Joe Horton and Coach Mac field questions from members of the Guild of Dads Facebook Group & Guild of Dads Social Media Channels. They cover dad jokes, pursuing your own interests as a dad, sexless marriage and getting down.
ANTHONY MIGLIORINO - The Peaceful Way to Father Your Children
Today I am joined by mentor, parenting blogger and coach along with founder of Peaceful Fathers - Anthony Migliorino.
There has over the last few decades been seismic shifts in just how we parent our children, leading some of us to question whether the way we were taught is actually the right way. Caught between being to liberal on the one hand and overly authoritarian on the other parents are beginning to ask if there is another way.
On my conversation with Anthony we delve into:
How he discovered peaceful parenting 20 years ago and why the non-aggression principle revolutionised his parenting.
The differences between authoritative parenting and permissive parenting and why both of these types of parenting are abusive in different ways.
Why using fear as a method of control means that when children grow into adulthood this will be normalised as a way others can influence their behaviour.
They hypocrisy around parents telling children not to hit and how they then go to use violence as a means to compliance.
Why focussing on what you kids to right rather than criticising and nit picking all the time grows their confidence.

ZAC SMALL - The Power of Digital Brotherhood in the Modern World
My guest today is author, Veteran, and Co Founder of the private Men’s group the Fraternity of Excellence creator of The Family Alpha blog, an co-host of the Oak and Rock Fatherhood Show - Zac Small
Dads now can connect more easily online than ever before, yet many are still isolated, depressed and detached than ever before. However there are a growing crop of men who are unifying men together in online and offline communities more than ever before, at the same time as galvanising them into brotherhoods which are creating better, more capable and present fathers.
In my conversation with Zac we discuss:
The choice we have over what aspects of our own dads we want to retain or reject
How we are the first generation to have one foot in the pre and post digital era's and why this impacts being a father
Why society seems to want to disempower men right now rather than empowering them
How life is short and we need to appreciate the present moment and the fact we might not be here tomorrow
The challenge of how to engage men's problems as men naturally do, rather than approaching men as broken women.
As a fellow dad and leading three young kids into the world each day, I have learned one big fundamental lesson. We were never designed to do life alone or know all the answers.
This podcast is an excellent resource to shorten the learning curve!
Host of the Military Veteran Dad
