Masculinity and manhood are human traits that are hugely misunderstood. Over time, the embodiment of these characteristics has changed, and men are acting out their manhood and masculinity through attributes like stoicism and never crying.
In this episode, we take a gentle, yet truthful look at manhood and masculinity by appreciating and learning from boxing legend Mike Tyson. We take the time to explore his previous wrongdoing and challenging past before shining a light on how he overcame adversity and has grown as a person. Hear about how Mike disarms people in a room by exposing his insecurities, and why his bad-guy persona is just a facade. Stay tuned and we go deeper into his life, exploring his tough upbringing and how this frustrated his growth. Throughout this rich and meaningful episode, we play powerful excerpts from his interviews with Oprah Winfrey and Boosie, catching glimpses of Mike’s wisdom as we go.
We also take calls and questions from our listeners and focus on topics like vulnerability and why courage cannot exist without it. So be sure to join us in the first of two parts of this important conversation.
