We’re back! After a brief summer hiatus, we return with our landmark fiftieth episode. Join Tom, Ryan, and Jacob sharing stories of emotional attachment: the good ways we attach to other men, and the not-so-good ways we attach.
We open the episode by catching up on our summer trips and activities, and Tom gives some clarifications from our previous episode on “Letting Go.” We also have our “manly morsel” segment (it’s always been called that), talking about Jacob’s shame of Grubhub and what Ryan should do on his upcoming long train ride.
We then dive into our discussion on emotional attachment. It’s a callback to a previous episode on emotional dependency (or “emodep,” though Ryan doesn’t exactly like that nickname). We differentiate between “dependency” and “attachment” and share both our positive and negative experiences in relationship with other men.
