The Art of Manliness Podcast Episode #33: Interview with Dr. Roy Baumeister Part II

I posted part one of the Art of Manliness interview with Dr. Roy Baumeister a while back - so here, long overdue, is part two.

My comments from the posting of part one:
This seems like a relevant topic (even though we know there is a lot of good things about men) - the media has been pushing the idea that men are in trouble of becoming obsolete, or at the least, at risk of no longer being relevant for much of anything.

On the other hand, Baumeister is mostly mining terrain covered better by Warren Farrell already - and he is, for me, disconcertingly conservative in his vision of masculinity - and we already know that model does not work for most men (look up gender role strain).
I also posted some less than favorable reviews of the book a while back, which you can read here.

My feeling is that this is the kind of thinking we are up against within the whole men's movement - there is a very conservative wing that rejects feminism and rejects men who support even healthy forms of feminism.

Welcome back to The Art of Manliness Podcast! In this week’s episode we continue our conversation with psychologist Dr. Roy Baumeister, author of the book, Is There Anything Good About Men?

Make sure to listen to Part I of our interview with Dr. Baumeister.
