Entered in Podcast

Objective

The Webby-nominated Man Enough Podcast explores what it means to be a man today and how rigid gender roles have affected all people. The goal is to create a safe, open environment for a range of perspectives to meet and stay at the table, moving from systems and language that polarizes and demonizes men and masculinity, into those that invite all humans to participate and thrive in our world. The audio and video podcast is hosted by actor, director & entrepreneur Justin Baldoni, author & journalist Liz Plank, and award-winning music producer & Wayfarer Studios President Jamey Heath, welcoming celebrities, experts and thought leaders. The weekly series explores how the messages of masculinity show up in pivotal themes, aiming to help people realize their potential as humans and their capacity for connection, such as:

Strategy

What does it mean to be a man in the world today? More importantly, what does it mean to be human? Webby-nominated The Man Enough Podcast, hosted by actor & director Justin Baldoni, author & journalist Liz Plank, and President of Wayfarer Studios & award winning music producer Jamey Heath, investigates how traditional structures and attitudes toward masculinity oppress and negatively affect men, women and humanity as a whole. Armed with candor and compassion, each episode engages in honest and at times uncomfortable conversations with celebrities, thought leaders and change-makers. The weekly series explores how the messages of masculinity show up in relationships, body image, privilege, fatherhood, sex, success, mental health and so much more.

In a recent episode (June 13, 2022), titled A Call to Action for Men, the hosts speak with Grey’s Anatomy star Giacomo Gianniotti. In the episode, he brings his vulnerability and grief to the urgent and important conversation about abortion and bodily autonomy. Opening up about his family’s experience with miscarriages and the medical intervention his wife, Nichole, needed, Giacomo encourages men to speak out and fight for equality proactively, without being prompted by women.

Other notable guests include Gavin DeGraw, NBC's Grand Crew's Phil Augusta and Echo Kellum, MMA Legend Georges St-Pierre, Alyssa Milano and John M Chu.
