Emmanuel Acho: An Uncomfortable Conversation

The Man Enough Podcast - October 4, 2021 - 1:11:38

What’s the reward for not calculating your every move? Emmanuel Acho, the Emmy-winning host of the popular series Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, NY Times best-selling author, and former NFL player, opens up about how his actions are so carefully planned that he feels more like a robot than a human. When the hosts challenge him, which Emmanuel admits he’s not used to, he embraces it with honesty and begins to realize that his logical plan doesn’t quite fit with his happiness plan. Emmanuel inspires us to reflect on who we want to be as he leans into the weight of the armor he’s wearing and wrestles in real-time with the rewards of taking it off.New episodes every Monday 🎙️ The video version of every episode and bonus features will always be available at https://ManEnough.com/podcast The Man Enough Podcast is produced by Wayfarer Studios and presented by Procter and Gamble, in partnership with Cadence13, an Audacy company.JOIN THE MAN ENOUGH COMMUNITY: https://instagram.com/wearemanenough https://tiktok.com/wearemanenough https://twitter.com/WeAreManEnough https://facebook.com/wearemanenough Subscribe to the Man Enough newsletter for behind the scenes, updates, sneak peeks of new episodes, and positive masculinity content: https://manenough.com/newsletterRead the Man Enough book: https://manenough.com/booksFOLLOW EMMANUEL ACHO https://www.instagram.com/Emmanuelacho https://www.tiktok.com/@emmanuelacho https://twitter.com/emmanuelacho https://www.facebook.com/theemmanuelacho https://www.youtube.com/c/Acho FOLLOW THE HOSTS:Justin Baldoni https://instagram.com/justinbaldoni https://www.tiktok.com/@justinbaldoni https://facebook.com/justinbaldoni https://twitter.com/justinbaldoni Text: +1 (310) 845-6909 Liz Plank https://instagram.com/feministabulous https://tiktok.com/@lizplank https://facebook.com/feministabulous https://twitter.com/feministabulous http://www.elizabethplank.com/ Jamey Heath https://instagram.com/jamey_heath_ https://tiktok.com/@jameyheath https://twitter.com/jamey_heath_ https://facebook.com/jameyjaz http://www.jameyheath.com/ PRODUCED BY: Wayfarer Studios: https://www.wayfarerstudios.comWayfarer Studios YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/WayfarerEntertainmentP&G StudiosExecutive Producers: Justin Baldoni, Jamey Heath, Tarah Malhotra-Feinberg, Marc Pritchard, Carrie Rathod, Chris CorcoranEPISODE ADVERTISERS - SPECIAL OFFERS FOR YOUBetterhelpThis episode is brought to you by BetterHelp.
