Movember is upon us – Prostate and Testicular Cancer awareness month. Men around the world will grow a moustache to show their solidarity and support for this fantastic cause. And there’s no better guest to have on American Mansy Podcast to kick off Movember than facial hair expert and pognologist Dr. Allan Peterkin. Dr. Peterkin is known for his three bestselling books on facial hair: One Thousand Beards: A Cultural History of Facial Hair, The Bearded Gentleman: The Style Guide to Shaving Face (co-written with Nick Burns), and One Thousand Mustaches: A Cultural History of The Mo. He has also contributed or been featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, The Wall Street Journal, Men’s Health, GQ and Esquire as well as the documentary Mansome, directed by Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me).

In this episode, he discusses how to attract a mate (and how not to) via your facial hair; a brief history of the Mo from ancient Egypt to present day; what your facial hair says about you; how to best represent yourself for Movember. Funny, informative and surprising, this interview is not to be missed.
