The Man Enough Podcast - July 26, 2021 - 1:06:42

Do you know who you are outside of who you have been told you should be? Acclaimed gender non-conforming writer, performer, and speaker, ALOK, shares their story, and the stories of those who came before them, with an urgency that invites us to step into our power and the power of interdependence. As the creator of the growing movement to degender fashion, ALOK is helping others move beyond the binary into full expression. In a conversation filled with wisdom, historical insight, and radical mercy, ALOK challenges us to value compassion over comprehension, to try harder for each other in the name of love, and reminds us that learning is a sign of being alive.The Man Enough Podcast, produced by Wayfarer Studios, P&G Studios, in partnership with Cadence13, an Audacy companyLaunch Partner: P&GHOSTS: Justin Baldoni, Liz Plank, and Jamey HeathJOIN THE MAN ENOUGH COMMUNITY:Instagram: to our newsletter for behind the scenes, updates, and new episodes: the book: THE HOSTS:Justin Baldoni Instagram: Baldoni TikTok: Baldoni Facebook: Baldoni Twitter: Justin: +1 (310) 845-6909Liz Plank: Plank TikTok: Plank Facebook: Plank Twitter: Heath Instagram: Heath TikTok: Heath Twitter: Heath Facebook: Instagram: Facebook: Twitter: youtube: #ALOK #GenderPRODUCED BY:Wayfarer Studios: https://www.wayfarerstudios.comWayfarer Studios YouTube: StudiosExecutive Producers: Justin Baldoni, Jamey Heath, Tarah Malhotra-Feinberg, Marc Pritchard, Carrie Rathod, Chris Corcoran

About The Show

What does it mean to be a man in the world today? More importantly, what does it mean to be human? Actor, director and author, Justin Baldoni, along with his co-hosts — longtime friend Jamey Heath and prominent masculinity expert Liz Plank — engage in honest and at times uncomfortable conversations with high profile guests. Armed with candor and compassion, each episode covers how the messages of masculinity show up in relationships, body image, privilege, fatherhood, sex, and success. If you’re interested in learning in real time, deepening your connection with yourself and others, and being reminded that you are enough, this is the podcast for you.
