Richard Reeves — No more lies. The actual state of boys and men.
Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:
We seek to solve problems like toxic masculinity in men when our focus should be given to boys to avoid these types of struggles in their adulthood.
Our childhood and how we are educated greatly influence our mentality and way of thinking. That is why giving the necessary education to children is essential for their development.
In this new episode, we will have Richard Reeves, the author of Of Boys and Men, as our guest. Richard and I will talk about why the modern male is struggling, why the education system should change, and why a healthy father figure is important in the development of children. We will also talk about why spaces for men are seen as anti-feminist.
We will touch on interesting topics that you cannot miss. Let's get started!
