Even men at the top of their game find themselves wanting more from life. Whether it's more meaning, a bigger impact, unshakable confidence, a hotter sex life, more money, deeper love, solid friendships or a powerful legacy…

What is true success? How can a man actually reach the end of his life and look back without regret -- having lived and loved fully, rather than having been stuck in fear or a life he was "supposed to" lead?
Man Alive is a series of bold, raw and gritty conversations with experts on success, power, sex, love and legacy for men who...are clear they want amazing lives?!

For the past 15 years Shana James, a dating and relationship expert, has worked with thousands of men and women around the world and collaborated with hundreds of teachers and coaches. She has led workshops for dating companies like Table for Six and Match.com and been matchmaker for an MTV reality show.

Shana doesn't buy into the need for rules, games or limitations. She works with men individually to find their unique power, confidence and leadership abilities, breaking open the boxes that keep them stuck, dissatisfied, or settling for less than amazing in any area of life.

Continually great and always teaching!

I love this podcast! I’ve been listening for a while and whenever I do I always take away something so valuable that I didn’t know before. From one man to a woman who gets us - thank you!

Great, Human Interviewer and Excellent Content

Huge props to Shana James for her work and this podcast.

I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I tend to approach women who profess to be experts on men with some trepidation… And Shana has not only done her homework, but approaches her topics and guests with humility, care, and a deep curiosity. Her hunger to learn, even as she partners with her guests to teach, is palpable and appreciated.

Man Alive offers great content and Shana shines as a skilled, present interviewer unafraid to share her very human, hungry student side. Brilliant in so many ways!

I love this podcast- it's the real deal

Shana is a really intelligent and deep host, and all of the episodes I have heard go far beyond where a lot of podcasts go in terms of discussing relationship and our inner worlds as people. I highly recommend listening and allowing yourself to go deeper into your experience of relationships and live with Shana's guidance and example.
