About Us

This podcast will mostly concentrate on the lives and viewpoints of many different male voices talking about their own masculinity. The biggest problem we have as males is that we don't talk about our own experiences and problems about our own manhood. And that being a man now looks a lot different that it used to be, or that we think it is.This podcast is supported by NextGenMen (nextgenmen.ca) and the Alberta Podcast Network. You can also find it at modernmanhood.orgSo how we balance being a father, a brother, a son, and an ally in the modern world? That's what I want to talk about. If you would like to be on the podcast to talk about masculinity and your experience pls email me at modernmanhoodpodcast@gmail.com

"Big Brother" (Wolf Pack Live) w/ Issac and Talia

Two months ago we talked about mentoring young men here at The Pint for Wolfpack. We're going to hear from a school counselor and a person from Big Brothers and Big Sisters about mentoring young men. Young men are feeling much more anxious, there is a lot more questioning of how men quote-unquote should be in society. So the question around what it means to be a man, to me, breaks down to how do we treat our young boys?

"Being Fat"

Fat. It was a word that I was called when I was a kid, and a word that I still get called, by myself. It was the constant barrage of images and messages of what it was to look like a man. I wanted to examine why as men we’re very obsessed with not being fat. And the mental gymnastics people do to justify insulting people who are fat, and then insult themselves.

"Our Favorites are Cancelled" w/ Carl Landra and Veronika Ilich

In this episode, we go through a personal journey of how I am reconciling my feelings on Junot Diaz and Michael Kimmel. As well wondering how far do we take issues of "cancellation." How do we separate the message from the man? Or do we not? Carl Landra and Veronika Ilich join me in helping me navigate these muddy waters.

Masculinity and the Media Pt 3: Breaking The Monster w/ Michelle Da Silva

We’re here in 2019 because the media created a monster. We’ve come to the point where issues that I think are community issues is now a wedge between man vs woman or left vs right. This type of media is not working anymore. And this media created a monster that platforms dangerous and troubling ideas. How is the media handling this? How is the media dealing with gender in a bigger case? We speak with Michelle Da Silva from Xtra to find out more.

"The Gendered World Of Work" with Michael, Megha, and Dana (Wolfpack Live!)

We had an awesome Wolf Pack last time. It was our one year anniversary of Wolf Pack in Edmonton and we celebrated by talking about how work has a gendered lens to it. Either through the careers, we choose, to the trouble we give to men and women who are not working their “traditional work roles." We wanted to hear from the people that have experienced both sides of the coin, and to try to get to the gritty knowledge of what it’s like to be in those roles.

Masculinity and the Media Pt 2: "Why do we get Toxic Masculinity so Wrong?" with Carl Landra and David Youn

Toxic Masculinity, it’s what many people think this podcast is about, a term that comes loaded with many definitions: gender roles and dominations, expression of emotions, the opposite of healthy masculinity, whatever that looks like, and what can be noted as traditional. All of them add to the confusion of what Toxic Masculinity, a phrase that is entrenched in our vernacular, actually is. So I ask, does the media get this essential part right?

Masculinity and the Media Pt 1: The Crisis of Masculinity

The way that masculinity gets talked about in the general mainstream media really annoys me. If anyone wants to learn more about how masculinity shapes our daily life, or how gender affects the world at large, the media does a piss poor job of explaining even the basic of concepts. How does someone even learn about multiple masculinities, gender inequality structures, systemic issues that deal with masculinity? Is there a solution to all of this? Or is this even a problem?

"Talking to Ryan" with Ryan Valley

Ryan is one of the co-founders of Men Edmonton, and most importantly one of the men that guided me into the pro-feminist masculinity movement. I met him at a coffee shop in Edmonton and have been thankful ever since. And now he’s joined the Next Gen Men family, as the Program Manager for Wolf Pack. We got a chance to talk about what it's like to be at a Wolf Pack, the highs, the challenges, and the tension. About the group and about masculinity in general nextgenmen.ca

"Can Men and Women be Friends?" aka The Friendzone (WolfPack Live!)

We have been talking about the relationship between men and female friends for a long time. The issue is that the lesson of those movies and in fact of society is that men and women are so attracted to each other that they cannot be friends. Today, I’m going to give you a small treat, I’m going to give you a listen to the last WolfPack we did here in Edmonton, to get a chance to listen to our storytellers talk about The Friendzone.
