This Podcast changed the way I think

It’s a big headine to deliver on. But, it’s also true.

I recently discovered the Tim Ferriss show (via his appearance on Freakonomics) but the first podcast of his that I listened to blew my mind with the guest’s (Sebastian Junger‘s) level of insight.

The discussion touches on gender and, specifically, manhood. But also on ‘traditional gender roles’ discussed in a way that I’ve never heard them discusses so respectfully (there is no mention of kitchens, if you worry about that kind of thing).

Even more, the podcast touches on war, on veterans, on why some veterans refuse to go to PTSD counseling and on what you can do if you say “I’d like to support veterans without supporting the war.”

I genuinely think that listening to this podcast upgraded my own level of humanity, and I think it will upgrade yours, too. Listen to it, already!
