Welcome, friend.

We're glad you found us. Settle in as we tell you a story — our story.

Our stories of faith, homosexuality, and masculinity take the form of blogs, podcasts, and videos. Flip a page and journey with us however and wherever your heart leads.

As you navigate around our community, we hope you feel at home with us. Feel free to introduce yourself with a comment or an email. We'd love to hear from you.

Who knows? Perhaps our story will soon intersect your own.

Amid your page-turnings on our site, if you hear nothing else, please hear this: you are not alone. Even the sparrow finds a home.

Onward,

Your Other Brothers

A YOB Break Followed by a Whole New YOB!

If you're a regular YOB reader/listener, you may have noticed things growing a bit dark here lately with not as many blogs or podcasts being published or produced. We've hit the pause button beyond the holidays, preparing for what we hope will be a fantastic 2021: more regularity with blogs and podcasts, new authors and podcast voices, a new store page with YOB products, along with a brand new website!

All I Want for Christmas is … Physical Touch

Physical touch isn't even one of my love languages, but it doesn't have to be. Humans are meant to have regular physical interaction with others. When the pandemic started, I became acutely aware that physical touch would be more rare than it already was in my life. I've experienced physical touch a total of seven times in almost a year.

YOBcast Episode 072: Holiday Spectacular!

It's our last episode of 2020! AKA the most phenomenal year that ever was. Join Tom, Ryan, Jacob, and returning guest Nate for a fun, nonspecifically topical, yet holiday-themed episode with discussions like our favorite (and least favorite) Christmas carols and when is the proper time to start (and stop) playing Christmas music. We also dive a little deeper by determining the identities of our own personal ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future and what lessons we’d learn from them, along with our individual recaps of 2020 as we fill in the blank after the hashtag: #2020WasTheYear.

Our Redesigned Site! Featuring Our Three Bedrocks

After a long, cold, manly void of a winter, MANLY MONTHLY returns! I catch us up on the last couple months of blogs and podcasts, and I talk about the process of our site redesign – including the three bedrocks of Your Other Brothers embedded into our new logo. Huge thanks to Wesley Ayers for all his hard work on the new design!
