The Man Enough Podcast - July 24, 2023 - 54:29

Join Liz and Jamey as they dive into a controversial discussion on therapy and its potential impact on relationships. They explore whether therapy can be taken to extremes, leading to an intellectual understanding of emotions without truly feeling them. The hosts debate whether therapy can be weaponized by men in relationships and the importance of finding the right type of therapy for each person. Later, the hosts reflect on past guests who have shared their transformative journeys with therapy including our own Justin Baldoni. From mental health experts like Kier Gaines, working to create more masculine approaches to therapy, to individuals opening up about their own struggles, like Karan Brar. These powerful moments shed light on the value of therapy and its impact on both men and women.
