This week is another special episode and includes another venture off the "usual" here at That's So Maven! - we've got a man on the show! I sat down with German Villegas, youth mental health worker, masculinity researcher, and host of The Modern Manhood Podcast. I thought it would be really interesting to chat with German about his journey to starting the podcast and explore how things like gender stereotypes and inequality hurt everyone.
Listen to our chat here:
Fun fact: The Modern Manhood Podcast and That's So Maven! are both members of the Alberta Podcast Network powered by ATB Financial. The network is also expanding to include a lot of other exciting Alberta-made podcasts as we speak, so be sure to check them out and tune in to something you haven't listened to before!
Thank you so much for tuning in to this second special episode of the show. If you enjoyed my deep dive into why I started the show, and this week's conversation with German, let me know! I'd like to develop more episodes like this as time moves forward, but I want to know that you, the amazing listeners of That's So Maven!, are into it.
Next week, we're exploring the connections between culture and business as I chat with Jacquelyn Cardinal, co-owner of Naheyawin, which focuses deeply on modern indigeneity in business and relationships between businesses and organizations.
See you next week!
