I am a quite fortuitous male.
I get to be my individual manager.
I invest my days serving to gals make far better partnership decisions that guide to long lasting enjoy.
I’m extremely fortunately married and truly like my wife and kids.
One of the other techniques I’m fortunate is that I’ve been a author in LA for in excess of 20 decades. Even however I was by no means wildly prosperous, I’m one particular degree of separation from folks who are.
I experienced my brush with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck when I wrote a script that completed in the Leading 3 in HBO’s Job Greenlight in 2001.
I coached bestselling writer Lori Gottlieb though she was creating her e book “Marry Him” in 2010, right before she turned a countrywide feeling with “Maybe You Should Communicate to Somebody.”
And via the magic of Facebook, I arrived to befriend author and former LA Situations columnist Meghan Daum.
I find her work to be fearless – a breath of clean air in a climate where by so lots of are scared to converse their minds.
I have been a admirer of hers for many several years, and I find her get the job done to be fearless – a breath of clean air in a climate where so quite a few are scared to converse their minds.
So when she instructed me she desired to interview me for her new Unspeakable Podcast and have me on soon after these luminaries as Dr. Drew and Chelsea Handler, I leapt at the prospect.
Simply because whilst it is enjoyment to make 5-minute films about men who suck at texting, what I enjoy even far more is going deep. And Meghan actually goes there.
All through our job interview, we coated:
- The condition of male/woman relations and how that has impacted my get the job done.
- Generational divides when it comes to sex/courtship/dedication., particularly how this could contribute to misunderstandings over sexual consent.
- The plan of a “man shortage” and the diploma to which this has to do with feminism and ladies “overtaking” adult men so that educated, productive women of all ages are competing for a tiny pool of equivalent-or-larger status men.
- What transpires to the adult men who are remaining driving and no matter if we’re conversing about incels with adequate subtlety.
It is seriously juicy stuff – and Meghan and I equally adore to deal with it head-on, with honesty and anything which is been lacking in our nationwide dialogue: nuance.
There is a lot much more in there and I’m not sure how Meghan edited it, but I hugely propose that you acquire a listen and subscribe to the Unspeakable Podcast.

Warmest needs and significantly appreciate,
Your exceptionally fortuitous buddy,
