Australia’s Today Show: “Parents Need to Have Meaningful Conversations with Sons”

During three-weeks of speaking engagements at boys schools in Australia, I was interviewed on Australia’s Today Show about the need for parents to have emotionally honest conversations with sons—and tips for how to do this—as well as the subject of boys and #MeToo.

Radio Times—WHYY-FM: “The Emotional lives of Boys and Men”

This conversation on the acclaimed NPR talk show with Host Marty Moss-Coane was tied to the NYT piece I wrote, “Teaching Men to Be Emotionally Honest”

American RadioWorks: “Should Colleges Teach Men How to Be Men?”

This interview on ARW’s Education podcast was conducted on the heels of my article about men needing to learn emotional honesty, which had exploded on social media. I was grateful to be invited on to this podcast, truly, and it was one of those conversations where that little voice in your head keeps saying, Is this person on board with any of this?

Tapestry—Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC): “Stop Staring! Andrew Reiner’s mission to stare down the shame around men crying in public”

This interview with Tapestry host Mary Hynes was the perfect conversation—honest, hopefully thoughtful, mutually respectful, organic, lacking in any agenda. Leave it to the Canadians!

Midday Show—WYPR (Baltimore NPR affiliate): “Boys Don’t Cry”

A call-in-show interview about the many complexities in American culture of crying amongst other people, both strangers and intimates, for boys and men. Really thoughtful discussion with callers and fill-in Host Aaron Henkin.

Minnesota Public Radio—“Curing Toxic Masculinity”

The conversation on this talk/call-in show started off with deconstructing contemporary American masculinity. Fortunately, it also explored how to move forward: how to construct a healthier identity in its place. In my own experience, this was one of the more productive discussions on this topic from MPR.
