Real Men Feel: Ep. 100, Looking Back and Looking Forward

Looking Back and Looking Forward Episode 100, July 3, 2018

This week Andy Grant and Appio Hunter gather for the 100th episode of Real Men Feel, sharing their highlights, favorite moments and more from the past 2 1/2 years and share news about the future of Real Men Feel.

“Real Men Feel was created to encourage men to allow for and express all of their emotions.” ~Andy Grant

Real Men Feel began on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, on Blab, a social media platform that didn’t come close to lasting as long as this show has. We wanted to remind men that they are human beings, entitled and capable of a full range of emotions.

Originally the goal was to do a monthly show, but the 2nd episode in March 2016 we decided we were enjoying it more than expected and went for making it weekly. We didn’t have an official guest until episode 6 when author and coach, Nick Breau, joined us for the Power of Joy back on April 5, 2016.

Topics Covered Include:

  • How it all began.
  • Real Men Feel by the numbers.
  • Who’s been on the most?
  • What shows and guests stand out to you?
  • More on MGTOW.
  • The impact the show has had on the hosts.
  • What do you think about the state of Men today and perhaps over the course of this show?
  • Any favorite show or types of shows? Deva and Kimberlee
  • What’s the future look like for Appio?
  • Where is Real Men Feel headed?

Real Men Feel: Ep. 99, The Bound Between Men and Dogs

The Connection Between Men and Dogs Episode 99, June 26, 2018

This week on Real Men Feel, Andy Grant is joined by by Richard Morrell and Sean Higgins to discuss the emotional bonds between men and man’s best friend; touching on everything from unconditional love to grief.

“I wrote about the emotional bond between men and dogs back in May, but knew I had to wait longer before I could possibly speak about it.” ~Andy Grant

This is the article that prompted today’s discussion: Men and Their Dogs

Dogs, unlike perhaps anything else in the typical man’s life, give unconditional love and support. Your dog is ALWAYS glad to see you. Your dog ALWAYS loves you, whether you just yelled at him for eating your favorite sneakers or you’ve spent hours tossing a ball to them. No other living creature gives so much emotion, presence, attention and time to a man like a dog. Your dog will never call you names, go behind your back, or leave you for another owner.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Richard and Andy talk about recently putting dogs down.
  • The intensity of grief around losing a dog.
  • The unconditional love dogs offer.
  • The support of dogs when depressed and suicidal.
  • Have you seen men in your family display more emotion regarding their dog than other people?
  • What do you think is behind your connection to your dogs, as a child or adult?
  • Have you ever been surprised by your grief regarding a pet?
  • Do you think men are encouraged to show emotion related to dogs or is it more that they are discouraged in showing emotion in other areas of life?
  • Why do you think the bond between a man and his dog can be so strong?
  • Was the loss of a dog, in life or on screen, a moment that was ok for the adults in your life to cry over when you were a kid?
  • Anything top of mind that you’ve learned from a dog?
  • Some wild stories involving animal communicators are shared.
  • What do we mean when we say “pulling yourself together?”
