Is self-care selfish? How do we commit to healthy practices across all areas of our lives, not just physical ones, as men?

Join Tom, Ryan, and Dean for a healthy discussion on self-care to start the new year! We talk about new year resolutions, one-word themes, and bring back good ole SPERM counts (spiritual, physical, emotional, relational, mental) for checking in with one another. There’s a lot of diversity in the room as we talk about what good self-care means to each of us.

We also add another letter to our SPERM count acronym and talk about what good sexual health looks like.

We continue our new intro segment, “The Brother Beat,” in which Dean brings a meaningful beat about corporate worship, and Ryan, a slightly less serious one about our favorite jokes. You can listen to Tom’s “PG-15” beat on the upcoming episode of our bonus podcast, The YOBaLOGUE!

Our current podcast production schedule is one public episode and one private episode per month, the latter available exclusively to our patrons on Patreon. Pledging even $1/month allows you access to The YOBaLOGUE, our 30-minute bonus podcast that features listener feedback, bloopers, one brother beat, and other cut content from this episode.
