255: Twelve Minute Convos w/ Rodey Turner

At a time when some hail the end of men, we have a talk show that showcases the exact opposite of that. “Real” married men are not the misogynistic, career-obsessed, arrogant specimens we often see portrayed on television or elevated in our mainstream culture. In this age of anything-goes, the “Married Men Don’t Talk Show” offers a candid, sincere, thoughtful outlook on the everyday problems that men face. It is a show that offers a safe place for married men to be themselves and discuss issues they may not otherwise. The men who participate in this forum find themselves challenged to face their life’s problems with a renewed and determined spirit. They will find correction, encouragement, humor, and a brotherly connection. Despite being established since 2009, it is in many respects a completely new vehicle that both men and women alike can appreciate. Those who have listened and will listen will find something unlike anything they have ever heard or experienced. These men will literally blow your mind and will obliterate the many negative stereotypes of men that are present in modern society. This is indeed not the end of men, but a revival and a respect for those truly authentic men – those who embrace their role as head of household proudly and happily. Our mission is to give married men the tools necessary to ensure that their family not only survives, but thrives!
