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.

This week: Kier Gaines
Kier Gaines: Becoming Your Own Role Model
Mental health therapist and digital content creator, Kier Gaines shares about his fears, marriage and fatherhood, how his experiences being raised by powerful women shaped the man he is, and why it’s so important to him to be a part of breaking the stigmas of mental health, especially in the Black community. With his wisdom and magnetic personality, Kier shows that self-awareness, vulnerability, and therapy are not just trendy topics, but are powerful tools that allow us to be confident and comfortable in who we are.
Last week: Giacomo Gianniotti
Giacomo Gianniotti: Awareness is the Superpower

With humility and sincerity, Giacomo reflects on the role that therapy and his wife have played in his growth as a man. He invites us to get curious about our thoughts and actions, reminding us that awareness is a superpower we can all possess.

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.
You will learn, laugh and sometimes cry as you witness Justin and Jamey’s unfiltered friendship and determination to evolve with Liz’s expert guidance, and together unpack what they learned with guests together, embarking on their own journey from their heads to their hearts.
