Episode 3: Matt Souch

On today’s episode we talk to Matt Souch, a mid twenties man working for media in Edmonton, inspired to make his life the best it can be, and doing things that “typical” mid twenties guys might not be doing. I loved his perspective on friendships and on his family. We will also highlight some of the events going on in #yeg!

Hi friends, I need some Funds

Hi everyone,

The thing is that I have already started the podcast, and you can listen to the first two episodes here ( ). The first two episodes have already been downloaded by more than a 100 people. But I noticed that for the show to be as successful as I want it to be, I would need more funds. Because that’s what I want to do, is to make this podcast as broad as possible and have the tools to do so. The problem is, this is something I want to be as far reaching as I can, and I don’t think I can do it with the money I have.

1) Tools for recording, specifically a portable digital recorder, a mixer, mics and tools (like stands, covers, etc)

2) Funds to be able to interview people at remote and interesting locations, like conferences, events, and out of town areas.

3) Funds to attend festivals and workshops for podcasting and to increase the network of the podcast.

4) Funds for software like Final Cut Pro, and for website and advertising fees.

This podcast is a gigantic passion project of mine, but it’s also something I feel this community needs and I hope it’s the start of something bigger not only for Edmonton but for the communities around it. I would be extremely thankful, and your names would be roll called on the show as much as I can.

The Current state of Manhood

“Manhood is the defeat of childhood narcissism.” –David Gilmore

I will never state that I have grown up or be fully realized as an adult. Actually, I don’t know, I could by the time I’m 85 sitting in my chair recollecting the thoughts of all of my years finally say that yes I am an adult. There is an equal chance that I will laugh at myself and reject that thought too. But I will always try to be an adult, more specifically I will always try to be man knowing that I may never get there.

I truly believe the journey is the goal and that if I see a man striving very hard to let go of their childlike tendencies of narcissism, then he is a man. That I think is the biggest difference between being a man, and someone saying to “be a man.” No real man should ever accuse another man to be anything less than a man. In that accusation you lose your manhood.

I know for sure that in my journey to be more empathetic, more of an ally, it has been challenging. Just because it takes a whole lot of humble to hold down your guard, to understand that your experience and your knowledge has no basis in some arguments. This is something goes absolutely against what as a boy you were taught, explicitly and implicitly. Being able to stay silent, pondering, and most importantly listening is the hardest but most valuable lesson a man should learn.

I know that there a lot of men (boys really) that feel threatened right now because of modern feminism. And to those people that are frustrated at those threatened boys, trust me when I say they will all evolve or get lost in the historical dust. The rest of us will happily bury them


What is a Man? The start of TMMP

I’m so happy and proud to start up a new podcast with the help of Men Edmonton.This podcast will mostly concentrate on the lives and viewpoints of many different male voices talking about their own masculinity.

The biggest problem we have as males is that we don’t talk about our own experiences and problems about our own manhood.And that being a man in 2016 looks a lot different that it used to be, or that we think it is.
So how we balance being a father, a brother, a son, and an ally in the modern world? That’s what I want to talk about.

If you would like to be on the podcast to talk about masculinity and your experience pls email me at
