Every great man in the history of the world has shared five key characteristics - five marks. We’re sitting down with pastor, author, and badass manly-man, Brian Tome, for an unfiltered conversation about those marks, about what makes a man, a man. The newly updated book, The Five Marks of a Man, is available now on Amazon.

Mark V: Men are Protectors
Boys are predators. Men are protectors.
You see it in the news almost everyday—the world is full of boys acting as predators. Brian and Andy sit down for a final conversation about what it means to be a protector in all aspects of your life.
Mark IV: Men Work
Boys consume. Men produce.
Andy and Brian sit down for a conversation about work—covering everything from 80's music, to getting fired, to the secret of happiness.
Mark III: Men are Team Players
Boys are lone wolves. Men run in packs.
American culture romanticizes the lone wolf, but in reality, it's weak, sick, and steps away from death. If you want to succeed in life, you must surround yourself with a good team. The evidence is all around us: from sports, to the arts, to science.
Mark II: Men Take a Minority Position
Boys want to fit in. Men aren't afraid to stand out.
Andy and Brian talk through what it looks like to—and the practical implications of—taking a minority position. It's not about being a contrarian on social media. Rather, it's standing for what's right, even when that is unpopular.
Mark I: Men Have a Vision
Boys are shortsighted. Men play the long game.
Andy sits down with Brian Tome to discuss the first mark of manhood: men have a vision - and its ramifications on family life, marriage, and work.
Practical and honest
The Five Marks books is great - and this podcast continues the conversation. So needed. The conversations are practical and honest. Great stuff!
