We are joined by Mark Piccolo who is a Psychologist that currently mixes private patient work with a role at the Victorian Institute of Sport as a Personal Excellence Adviser.

With a psychologist on we got to ask some of the questions we have always wanted to, including:

What are some of the common factors that can trigger mental health issues? How does a man’s mental health impact his overall health? What would you say to men who feel that their anxiety or depression interferes with their daily life? How can men help each other feel more comfortable talking about these issues? What advice do you have for men who may be afraid or embarrassed to get help? What are your general tips for staying mentally healthy? What are some healthy ways to manage stress? Mark talks through these and much, much more.


Is the modern man a hunter or a gentleman? A manual labourer or a technophile? In today's culture the modern man usually is a mix of many things. The modern man must be adaptable.

Gender roles are changing and blending together and the stay-at-home dad or part time dad population is growing.

More fathers than ever are participating in their children's nurturing and upbringing.

The thing is that fathers and mothers come into the parenting process differently though. For the mother, the connection is biological. It's a part of her.

Fathering, on the other hand, is less so. Therefore, it's important for men to learn the skills they need to be a good dad. For some guys it's more intuitive, like kicking a football, but most guys need a coach or some direction.

DADDY EATS LAST discusses what it means to be a man and a father in modern society and all the issues that comes with both.
