Join Jake and Carl as they react to a unity event hosted at Colorado State University event called CSUnite (for more info: https://firstamendment.colostate.edu/).

S02 Episode 04: We gotta talk about men and rejection.

Join Jake and Carl as they talk about the ways we, as men, need to restructure our masculinities with a sense of urgency.

To understand how this happens, Jake and Carl discuss how masculinities as it currently stands creates a foundation of violence. Creating healthy alternatives to express anger and to deal with rejection is a way for men to exercise social justice.
