The Secure Masculinity Podcast is for men who want to shed light on healthy and positive
masculinity and for women who want to understand the logic in which men operate. A whopping
80% of all suicide fatalities are men. It’s a silent crisis that is operating feverishly under the
radar. A massive culprit is insecure masculinity, and its products include refusal to ask for help,
castrated emotional health, and mandatory “codes” of traditional masculinity. This podcast aims
to raise awareness, unearth the toxic teachings in our culture that drive men to the edge, inspire
conversations, tell stories, destigmatize mental health and men asking for help, and more.

Currently, our society offers 3 consistent resources to men;

1. When they need help and humanity: a shameful and uncaring helping of
      a. “Man up”
      b. “Deal with it”
      c. “Get over it”
      d. “Fix it”
      e. “Figure it out.”
2. When they get in trouble: Incarceration (men (with a strong emphasis on black men)
comprised 93% of the total prison population in 2018).
3. When they’re pushed to the edge: Planning and attending their funerals
(out of ~46,000 suicide deaths in the U.S. in 2020, ~36000 were men (with a strong emphasis on white men)).
