"Where most guys really are" with Rich Dorment, Editor-in-chief of Men's Health

We're joined this week by Men's Health editor-in-chief Rich Dorment. Rich brought his son with him to work and he fell asleep while we were recording the episode! We talk about his decision to include mental health as an area of focus at the magazine, his article on Men and friendship and cultivating work/life balance. Later, Rich helps us with an advice question from a listener who needs help with getting politics out of his relationships with his friends.

Hey Man, 
I’m on a group text with a bunch of old college friends and lately things have been getting pretty heated. We’re all politically to the left, but there’s been intense disagreement about the Democratic primaries. Lately, there’s a subset of the group that’s been intensely vocal about their love for one candidate and have been talking a lot of shit about the other candidates. One friend seems to have gone completely off the rails and just posts memes all the time. Privately, some friends who are undecided or support someone else have been sharing how much they hate it and I’ve noticed way less activity from them on the chat. I don’t want this to splinter my friend group, but feel like either way I’m going to be forced to take a side. How do I keep the peace?
