Father’s Day: The Afterthought Hallmark Holiday

Talkin' Mother's Day
Ah, Mother's Day. That day of the year that brings with it a mixture of guilt, apprehension, obligation and confusion. You know: The essential ingredients of any familial relationship.For Pedro and Chris, the relationships with their mothers are fraught with baggage -- some more than others. In Chris's case, it's more the size of carry-on luggage. And with Pedro...well, let's size it up as a steamer trunk.And having the bombardment of commercial messages from retailers, florists, online advertisers and the media about the importance of Mother's Day does not help.Should we, as sons, act out of a sense of obligation? Shouldn't we be honoring our mothers all year-round?Do we automatically owe them our respect and love because, let's face it, they gave birth to us, wiped our asses when we were little and put up with our nonsense for lo these many years? How do we define the relationships with our mothers as sons and adult men and fathers ourselves?Well, we dive into all of that in this latest episode of About Men Radio. Give a listen and tell your friends.And by the way, would it kill you to call your mom just once in a while?

Facebook Does a Faceplant and We’re Paying the Price
Farmville. Mafia Wars. Poking friends. Ah, Facebook. Not that many years ago it seemed so innocent and harmless. Taking online quizzes about which Harry Potter character I was? Checking in with the locations of places I visited? Sharing personal details of my day-to-day life? Of course! Why not? What could possibly go wrong? Fast-forward to … Continue reading Facebook Does a Faceplant and We’re Paying the Price → The post Facebook Does a Faceplant and We’re Paying the Price appeared first on About Men Radio.

There is a kitchen magnet I have that boasts about drinking coffee: “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” Yeah, it’s a similar feeling I have about retirement. I’ll retire when I’m dead. When you are in your 20s, retirement, pensions, 401(k) and Social Security are a foreign language. Saving for when I’m in my 60s? Pshaw! … Continue reading Retirement?

Putting Fitness Back on Our Menu
Let’s be honest: Our attempt in 2016 to launch the About Men Radio Fitness Challenge — in which members of the posse pledged to improve our eating and exercise habits — collapsed quicker than a football handled by Tom Brady. But wait! Brady recently came up in a conversation between Chris and Pedro, and it … Continue reading Putting Fitness Back on Our Menu → The post Putting Fitness Back on Our Menu appeared first on About Men Radio.

Men, We Face Our Reckoning Post-Harvey Weinstein
How many times did Pedro and I *think* we were ready to record a show addressing the issue spawned by revelations of how movie mogul Harvey Weinstein treated women? Probably at least five times, I would say. And at every turn, when we would get our schedules lined up and prepare…Boom! There would come another … Continue reading Men, We Face Our Reckoning Post-Harvey Weinstein → The post Men, We Face Our Reckoning Post-Harvey Weinstein appeared first on About Men Radio.

Who’s a True New Yawker? We Put Ourselves to the Test
In this episode of About Men Radio, Chris and Pedro debate the finer points of country vs. city living. The discussion is not exactly the opening credits of “Green Acres,” but let’s just say that Chris was more the Eddie Albert character in this talk and Pedro identified more strongly with Eva Gabor.

On a Haunted Hayride, A-Shrieking I Will Go
If it’s Halloween time, it must mean it’s time for Chris to show the bravery of Sir Robin from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” You remember him, right? He was not exactly brave but pretended to be. Well, in the spirit of Sir Robin, Chris went on a haunted hayride at Woodloch Resort in … Continue reading On a Haunted Hayride, A-Shrieking I Will Go → The post On a Haunted Hayride, A-Shrieking I Will Go appeared first on About Men Radio.

A White Guy and a Puerto Rican Talk About Racism
In this episode of About Men Radio, Pedro and I discuss the thorny intractable issue of racism and how we’ve experienced it. It’s a white dude (me) and a Puerto Rican (Pedro), who both grew up in the Bronx, talking about a topic that in many ways is the third rail of polite conversation. I … Continue reading A White Guy and a Puerto Rican Talk About Racism → The post A White Guy and a Puerto Rican Talk About Racism appeared first on About Men Radio.

Heavy on Coffee and Light on Sleep
Sleep but not nearly enough. Wake. Drink coffee. Drink more coffee. In fact, just pour the pot over your head to wake up. Rinse and repeat. If this sounds familiar, welcome to the crowd. Some of us might rise, but we won’t shine. As a society, we’re chronically not getting enough sleep and let’s face … Continue reading Heavy on Coffee and Light on Sleep → The post Heavy on Coffee and Light on Sleep appeared first on About Men Radio.

Does ‘Wonder Woman’ Signal a Culture Shift in Hollywood?
One of the best movies this summer far and away has been “Wonder Woman.” The movie stars Gal Gadot, who is not just a pretty face. She’s got poise, comic sensibilities, acrobatic fight moves and a presence that really lights up a screen. And a special bonus: The movie is now the highest-grossing live-action film … Continue reading Does ‘Wonder Woman’ Signal a Culture Shift in Hollywood? → The post Does ‘Wonder Woman’ Signal a Culture Shift in Hollywood? appeared first on About Men Radio.

We Swear, Cussing Is a Way of Life
There is just something so primal about cussing and swearing that it’s difficult for us guys to suppress. Hey! Asshole! Are you paying attention to what I’m sayin’ here?! See what I mean? Whether used to vent (“I can’t fucking believe it!), to make an assertion (“That is fucked up”) or to beg a question … Continue reading We Swear, Cussing Is a Way of Life → The post We Swear, Cussing Is a Way of Life appeared first on About Men Radio.

The Meaning of Manliness
In ancient Greece, men were encouraged to let the tears flow. Dudes in the 17th century looked for a virile, masculine edge by slapping on a pair of high-heels, and it was perfectly masculine for a man to wear a pink silk suit with floral embroidery in the 18th century. As the cultural ideal of manhood continues … Continue reading The Meaning of Manliness → The post The Meaning of Manliness appeared first on About Men Radio.

Chris and Pedro Come Clean About Housework
So after three years of doing this podcast, Chris and Pedro decided to go where fools rush in and angels fear to tread and that is an honest man-to-man conversation about chores and housework. What is revealed is as about as pretty as balled-up sweaty socks turned inside out. I’m not sure we know the … Continue reading Chris and Pedro Come Clean About Housework → The post Chris and Pedro Come Clean About Housework appeared first on About Men Radio.

BONUS EPISODE: We Really Are Getting Too Old For This
It seemed like such a good idea at the time. Chris and Pedro were just planning on having a drink or two after work at a local dive bar. What could possibly go wrong?

Lost Podcast Is in the Wild!
We found it! Pedro and I recorded an episode a few weeks ago that fell somewhere into the couch cushions but fear not, we’ve dusted it off and it’s as good as new. Well, almost. We do discuss (belatedly for you dear listeners) our sense of loss at the death of our beloved Carrie Fisher, … Continue reading Lost Podcast Is in the Wild! → The post Lost Podcast Is in the Wild! appeared first on About Men Radio.

“Manopause” and Having a Midlife Crisis
A midlife crisis makes for good movie fodder: There is the wayward husband who suddenly wants to take up with a younger woman or the guy who believes that getting a bright shiny sports car will make him youthful. The truth is having a midlife crisis is not just the stuff of fiction. It is … Continue reading “Manopause” and Having a Midlife Crisis → The post “Manopause” and Having a Midlife Crisis appeared first on About Men Radio.

Locked and Loaded
I busted Father John’s chops for not wanting to join the rest of us at the shooting range. He took it in stride — as he always has — and just casually lit up his cigarette with the air of a man who’s heard it all before. You see, John dislikes guns and he wasn’t going to … Continue reading Locked and Loaded → The post Locked and Loaded appeared first on About Men Radio.
