A Comedy Self-help Podcast to Make Life Suck Less!

For the love of all men!

May 8, 2020

This week, we cover For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity by Liz Plank – the  first of a two-parter!

And let us tell you -- it really turned some things we've felt about men and the patriarchy on their heads. In fact, the book was so interesting that we decided to make this a two-part episode!

Elizabeth Plank is an award-winning journalist and the Executive Producer of several critically acclaimed series at Vox Media. Liz was ranked as one of the 50 most influential women by Marie Claire and was named one of Forbes' 30 Under 30 in Media. Before becoming a journalist, Liz worked as a researcher and behavioral science consultant at the London School of Economics, from which she holds a master's degree in policy with an emphasis in global gender politics.

In the first part of this For The Love of Men book review, we cover Part I:

PART I. The Lies We Tell About Men

  1. You’re Not Born a Man
  2. Manhood Is Never Fully Earned and Needs to Be Renewed Over and Over Again
  3. Masculinity Is Under Attack
  4. Men Are Slaves to Their Bodies and Their Nether Regions
  5. Men Don’t Need Intimacy
  6. Male Shame: What Is It Like to Feel Like You Need to Prove Something You Never Quite Feel Like You Have?

Tune in next week for the second part of the book!
