Do you do whatever you want? Do you call the shots and make your own way in the world? We hope so. So long as it’s not at the expense of yourself. There’s a widespread misconception of manhood in American culture. It’s this: My mind and body is a rental car and I’m going to treat it as such. Does this make you George Clooney? Frank Sinatra? No. It makes you careless, negligent and lazy. Because the greatest hallmark of manliness is self-control. In this episode:

  • - why you’re insecure about men with self-control
  • - the selfishness of self-neglect when you have kids
  • - peer pressure ends in adolescence
  • - why self-control is the ultimate test

Is Laziness The New Manliness? If it is, America is in bigger trouble than we had thought.
