Revolutionary

I have listened to the Order of Man podcast for about 2 years and have found it very useful in my life. I have one daughter and my wife and I are expecting a son in May. Adding Man in the Making to my podcast list not only is preparing me for interactions with my son and daughter, but also reminds me of the conversations I had with my dad. I consider my dad to be one, if not the most, influential person in my life and this podcast also reminds me how much I appreciate the relationship I have with him. Thank you for this and keep up to great work. Much love.

Great podcast

Super cool to see a young man like you doing a podcast with your dad! You truly inspire a lot more kids than you know of and even inspire older guys to bond more with their sons and take that next step to becoming a better man! Great job!

Congratulations

Just finished episode 4 and have also
Listened to the previous 3. It has been gray to see Brecken find his voice and start making the show his own.

My 22 year old son and I work/travel together with our company and even though he’s grown and on his own, listening to Brecken and Ryan interact, gives me ideas on how to address life’s topics with my son.

Keep up the great work.
