On this episode, Travis speaks with Michael E. Addis, PhD, who coauthored (with Ethan Hoffman) the new book The Psychology of Men in Context. As the back cover states, this book "is a valuable introduction to the history, current scholarship, and social implications of the psychological study of men and masculinity." Michael's major focus is men's mental health and the consequences of not having the tools, nor the space, to communicate our emotions as men. He provides a broader viewpoint for our conversations on The New Masculine by spelling out the 5 different perspectives, as well as the political landscape in which they exist, that are often used to study and explain masculinity. Further, he helps Travis explore the concept of privilege and what blocks many men from recognizing their privilege.
