Men and Their Friends – The Male Learner Podcast

This episode includes a conversation with my old friend, Craig Lafferty. We explore why we are friends, how we became friends, why are friendships are important to men, and why most male friendships lack emotional depth in comparison to female relationships. Via our conversation, we hope to create Better Husbands, Better Fathers, Better Sons, Better Friends… Better Men. The world surely needs them.
