Understanding Male Friendships
Welcome to day 5 of the 12 Days of Podcasts!
Between December 25, 2017, and January 5, 2018, we are recommending one podcast or podcast episode per day! All of our recommendations will encourage you to laugh, think, cry, or do.
Today's recommendation comes from Chris.
Podcast: Art of Manliness
Host: Brett McKay
Episode: #360: Understanding Male Friendships
Description: It’s a common trope that adult men don’t value friendship as much as their female counterparts and that men really don’t need or want friends like women do. But my guest today argues that assumption is wrong and comes from viewing friendship from a strictly female point of view. In fact, based on his research, most adult men very much want good friends but just don’t know how to make them. What’s more, he says, male friendships look different from female ones and we should stop judging the quality of male friendships based on how women do them.
