Ep 122 - Jack Donovan: The Decline of Masculinity and The Way of Men


The Way of Men
By Jack Donovan

Jack Donovan, author of The Way of Men, sits down with Sam on the Wild Initiative to discuss masculinity. In this episode, they discuss examining the definitions of masculinity through history and various cultures, how masculinity can only be defined by men, the difference between being a good man and being good at being a man, testing yourself against other men, craving elements of danger in our lives, conserving masculine spaces and time just for the guys and the association between masculinity and violence. Also in this episode, they discuss Jack preparing to go on his first-ever hunt up in Oregon, the steps he’s taking to prepare and the difficulties he’s encountering along the way.
