Politics, Masculinity, & Pies. Oh My!
Welcome back for the 7th episode of The Beardsmen. This podcast is our opportunity to sit down with you all and answer any questions you may have, and just talk about the experience of being a man in the world today. As we say at the opening of each episode this is where we talk, mock, and never walk away from the conversation.
In this episode we are talking about some of our favorite Thanksgiving foods, the lead up to our Black Friday Sale, how Live Bearded almost started a dating app and so much more.
Speaking of the dating app... what would be the best name for that? Beard Love, Barbers Only, Fuzz Finder? Drop us a comment with your best name for a dating app for beards.
This Week's Questions:
In the current climate it can be challenging to navigate political discussions without getting too heated. How can we engage in constructive conversations about important issues with friends and family?
I've been feeling disconnected from my friends lately. How can I maintain and strengthen meaningful friendships as I get older and life gets busier?
As someone who values traditional masculinity, how do you think modern society's changing expectations of men impacts our self-image and identity?
Do Better Dude Of The Week
As always, we wrap with our Do Better Dude, and this week we are talking about Information Technician 2nd Class Thomas James. During a night out in Colorado a gunman opened fire in the club killing and wounding several people. Even though Thomas was unarmed he heroically stepped up and charged the gunman to disarm and subdue him. His actions undoubtably saved the lives of many, and for his actions he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, the highest non-combat decoration the Navy can award for heroism.
Hats off to you brother for your selfless actions, and I am sure as soon as you get out of the Navy you will be growing one hell of a beard!
