Michael Ian Black on Masculinity

A big part of my attempt at trying to understand myself as a 50ish White Male in the 20’s is how I was ‘taught’ what masculinity was and how I’m trying to understand it now. Black touches on elements of his youth in the 80’s and how that effected him as a man and eventual father. His dry humor and thoughts on toxic masculinity are a good launching point for many of us to take a look at ourselves. This topic and my own experiences are something I plan to explore in this blog, I recommend taking a listen.

I stumbled across this Podcast while searching for something to help me understand my youngest son’s anxiety and fearfulness as I went to run up the canyon. Somehow I landed on this episode.
