Pleasantly surprised!

As someone who has distanced themselves from religion and the church, I was blown away at how awesome the “Rollin’ with the Holies’ was! Funny, witty, and unconventional approach to social justice through the lense of two pastor friends! Did not expect to laugh so much. Shoutout to Cierra Franco for sharing this and for the awesome production work.

Not just for men; exploring our connectedness

I enjoy Other Men Need Help and look forward to the release of each new podcast. Even though I am an older WF, I enjoy hearing the presentation of Pagan’s questions and thoughts and the exploration of
friendships in Season 3. I always relate to some person or topic presented. For example, in Rollin with the Holies, there is a clever interweaving of clergy-the loneliest calling, ADD, civil rights, the south, coffee, and taking a chance on becoming a friend. This is my favorite episode so far. The production team does a great job, and I find myself immersed within the podcast and not thinking that anything should be done differently. It is easy to lose yourself in the listening, as it should be. Highly recommended!

All the things I wanted to say as a man, but never did

Season 3 about make friendship is funny and so insightful. It says everything about friendship that I always thought, but never really imagined other men felt. I wish every guy in America had a chance to listen to this show, especially S3 E6. As an added bonus, the music for the show is just perfect.
