A Revolution for Men & Boys
Play • 37 min

One of our favorite musicals is Les Miserables, which is a story about the French revolution. It’s also the story of love and transformation.

What does that have to do with raising boys? Today’s guest is Dr. Charles Corprew, a psychologist and host of the podcast “What’s Your Revolution?” Charles is passionate about revolution —  not the bloody riots that mar cities and countries, but the opportunities we all have for personal and global transformation.

“I think I’ve always known that revolution was necessary for our boys,” Charles says, noting his stable upbringing and experiences with racism. “I wanted to make sure the boys had abundant opportunities for a successful life. I wanted to make sure I was creating successful pathways for our young men, regardless of what they look like. That they have the ability to be young boys — to have fun, to play and find who they want to be.”

The work has to begin with adults, he says. We adults need to examine our beliefs and systems, and tackle questions such as, “What does it mean to be equitable?”

Boys needs space, freedom and role models to figure out who they are and who they want to be. “We need to give our boys more models, more expansive opportunities to try out,” Charles says. “This is the hard work that we need to do as adults so that our children can actually grow up and be whoever they want to be.”

Viva la revolucion! 

In this episode, Jen, Janet & Charles discuss:
  • How racism inhibits boys’ opportunities to play, to experiment and grow
  • The importance of role modeling
  • Helping boys discover their true selves
  • Empower boys to advocate for change
  • Talking to (and listening to!) boys regarding their educational needs
  • Encouraging outdoor play
  • Male friendships
  • Teaching boys the value of service to others
  • Promoting healthy masculinity

What Do You Want & Why Do You Want It
Damona Hoffman has been a dating coach for over 15 years. Is this a podcast about dating? Nope. But it is a podcast about real discussions that are relevant to singles, and it's a genuinely joy to have Damona's wisdom on the podcast this week. We get into our own experiences in dating as well as explore some of the common misconceptions that surround the singlehood space. We'll also get into the disruptions to singlehood and dating that have resulted from the rapid, continuous evolution of technology. This episode also begins with your host Shani Silver answering a Patron question that's vital to understand as we move toward more positive singlehood mindsets, and Shani welcomes back her first guest ever, Jessie Jolles, for a brief chat on her newly launched TV pilot, Forgotten Animals. It's a long one, but a GREAT one. Thank you for listening.
