Ok ok…we might have invented this syndrome…but…you know exactly what we are talking about. Boys grow up older, trying to prove that they have bigger dicks, and doing a lot of stupid things because of that. It is a big part of how the world still operates, and we believe it is a huge part of our shadow as men that we need to own up to. But it’s not all bad, and so today’s summary has a bunch of dudes trying to figure that testosterone thing out. Enjoy the rush!

🧐 Listener’s Commentary by Paul Kist
I wanted to share some reflections on this episode. It’s a dynamic one, as it goes into some of the biological roots of conflict between individuals, and the driving force behind corrupt patriarchal systems that are eating at the fabric of our humanity. Testosterone one powerhouse of a hormone. It creates drive, and when harnessed for good, can lead to the accomplishment of wonderful things, not the least of which is the creation of life itself. Left out of balance and without purpose, and we find ourselves being driven to exert power for its own sake; a battle of dicks if you will.
🧐 Writer’s Commentary | BREAK FREE by Omar Shaker
Well…there comes a certain point in our lives where we have to be our own selves. The pressure our parents apply to confine and pin us down to their dreams makes their suggested path the one with least resistance. However, I believe that finding our own way is the only thing that will make us find our own private versions of the holy grail. It is what Carl Jung calls the process of Individuation.
Have a great week,
