We were talking one day. About how most advice columns are written by women responding to questions from women. About how the advice out there for men rarely seems to go beyond workout routines and money-making tips. We thought, wouldn’t it be cool if there was a place where men could ask questions about anything, and get honest advice? Then we thought, why not start something like this ourselves?
We're joined this week by Hussein Kesvani, staff writer at MEL magazine and author of the book Follow Me Akhi: The Online World of British Muslims. In a special holiday themed episode, Hussein helps us give advice to a man whose deep loathing of Christmas is a source of tension in his relationship.
This week we're joined by the writer Thomas Page McBee. Thomas is the author of two books, "Man Alive" and "Amateur," which documents his experience becoming the first trans-man to box in Madison Square Garden. Thomas helps us answer a question from a listener who is drinking and smoking heavily and sounds bored with his life.
