Thank you for checking out this page.  Since you are here I assume you are a "non-man".  I could just use the term "woman", but these days...I might be leaving out someone else, and I want to be VERY CLEAR that it is not my intention to leave out anyone.

Yes, the name of the podcast is "Being A Better Man" and not Being a better person.  I get how that could sound exclusionary, but hear me out.

I am talking to men, it's true.  I'm talking to men about being better men.  Part of the reason for that is because I myself, am a man.  In my wildest dreams I do not assume or presume to know all the intricacies of what it means to be a woman...or anyone non-man, so I would not be able to speak on that with any degree of credibility.  I can talk about being a man though.  So I hope you see that it's not to leave anyone out...but rather to focus on the topic of my experience in being a man.

Now...if you are a non-man, the chances are pretty high that you have someone in your life; a relative, friend, partner, co-worker, SOMEONE who is a man, or at least...should be.  Am I right?

If you answered in the affirmative then you may very well be able to find value in this podcast as well.  Just like I can't 'know' what it means to be a woman, there are a lot of non-men that do not understand what a man is supposed to be; what makes them tick, how do they think, whats the difference between a good man and a bad one?  By listening to this podcast you might find some of those answers.

Furthermore, if someone you care about is a man you might want to steer them over to this podcast.  If they became a better man as a result, wouldn't that also benefit you in some way?

So, the bottom line is that ALL are welcome here at Being A Better Man.  Please feel free to be part of the community; listen, comment, and share.  If I or a guest ever says anything that you find questionable, by all means drop me a note and I will address it. The ultimate purpose here after all, is to make the world a better place, one man at a time.  You are part of that world, so what you think matters.

Thank you,
