What's Good, Man? A Podcast In Search of Healthy Masculinity

“What’s Good, Man?” is a podcast on men, masculinity, and culture. Featuring two hosts who sharpened their analyses in the worlds of Hip Hop, cultural organizing, and movement-building, it’s also a response to a specific call: men need to speak up more about issues like consent, gender violence, and sexism, especially with other men. With episodes on men’s role in the feminist movement, how masculinity is portrayed in pop culture, healthy sexuality, and more, “What’s Good, Man?” strives to be a space for honest, critical conversations about what manhood is, but also about what it could be.

The first episode of the podcast will be available on November 6, 2019 wherever you get your podcasts (we will also link directly to each episode here, including full transcripts). A new episode will be released every two weeks.
  • What's Wrong with Masculinity?
  • What Kind of Man Are You? Masculinity in Pop Culture
  • Feminism Is For Everybody, But Wait: IS Feminism for Everybody?
  • Masculinity: Fix it, or Smash it?
  • How Do We Build a Culture of Consent?
  • What Advice Would You Give Your Teenage Self About Sex, Dating, and Relationships?
  • What Happens When We Mess Up? On Accountability
  • Does Masculinity Have a Future? If So, What Might It Look Like? (LIVE)

LIVE EPISODE RECORDING: Wednesday, November 6, 2019
Our very first live episode will focus on the future of masculinity: what might it look like in 10 years? Will it even exist in 100 years? What lessons can we learn from science fiction? What will it take for men to meaningfully contribute to a future free from gender violence, misogyny, and the kind of controlling, insecure masculinity that hurts so many people of all genders? Join us on 11/6 at the University of MN's Whole Music Club (6-8pm) to discuss these topics and more (sponsored by the UMN Women's Center, Aurora Center, and Asian Pacific American Resource Center).
  • "What's Good, Man?" is available for booking! We can do live episode recordings, and/or workshops and facilitated conversations at your college, conference, or other space. Email elguante@gmail.com with any inquiries.
