What does it mean to be a man, or really a human, in the world today?
We’re changing that together. You have the ability to change it with us.
If you’re interested in deepening your connection with yourself and others, evolving your understanding of the impacts of traditional masculinity on all people, and being reminded that you are enough, this is the podcast for you.
We go deep and it gets real, and it’s all so beautiful, even the messy, uncomfortable parts
…maybe especially those parts.
New episodes released every Monday on all podcast networks and right here.
THIS WEEK: Anthony Padilla
Anthony Padilla: The Illusion of Control
How do we measure our strength and value as men? We’re joined by one of YouTube’s original success stories, comedian, and co-creator of SMOSH and founder of Pressalike Productions, Anthony Padilla.
Anthony’s refreshing openness and honesty invites us to find strength in vulnerability and reminds us that our value is not measured by what we do, but by who we are.
Anthony shares his story and experiences on a wide range of topics including:
- Achieving success, the pressure he felt to entertain, and why he took the risk to be true to himself, pivot his content, and focus on making the world a better place
- How his unique way of expressing himself outside of traditional gender norms has been criticized and policed by men and women alike throughout his life
- The pressure to provide for the people in his life above his own needs
- Depression, panic attacks, and the effect the pandemic is having on mental health
- The importance of opening up, not judging our feelings, and facing our traumas
LAST WEEK'S EPISODE: Jamey Heath
Jamey Heath: Healing My Broken Parts
How can we hurt the people we love so much? Jamey Heath, award-winning producer, musician, and our beloved co-host, shares his dynamic story with profound authenticity on difficult topics including:
- Being a survivor of sexual abuse, and how burying that trauma affected his life and relationships
- Navigating a white world while maintaining his identity
- Infidelity and betrayal
- Accountability, therapy, 12-step programs, and what finally led him to face his shit
Jamey’s courageous transparency gives us permission to put down our armor and open up, as he inspires us to do the work to heal, make amends, and be fully human.

ABOUT THE PODCAST
If you’re interested in learning in real-time, this is the podcast for you.
Following the popular release of Wayfarer Studios Co-founder Justin Baldoni’s debut book, Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity, he and his cohosts, longtime collaborator Jamey Heath and prominent masculinity expert Liz Plank, engage in intimate, open conversations with high-profile guests.
Listen or watch as they investigate how traditional structures and attitudes toward success and failure, fatherhood, body image, privilege, relationships, intimacy and other issues hold back and often oppress and negatively affect men, women and humanity as a whole. The first of the highly anticipated episodes of the podcast feature conversations with Matthew McConaughey, Shawn Mendes, Karamo Brown, Glennon Doyle, Eugenio Derbez and more.
