What does it mean to be a man? How does a boy become a man? These questions are relevant to every man today.
In this episode, I'm joined by Jason Craig, a farmer, author, men's leader, and convert to Catholicism who writes frequently about the transition from boyhood to manhood. Jason is the author of "Leaving Boyhood Behind, " and he lives and works on his dairy farm in rural North Carolina with his wife and children.
In this episode we discuss:
Whether or not manhood is a biological reality
How becoming a man is a little like dying
Marks of successful transition to manhood
The importance of initiation rituals
What to do if you never had initiation rituals in your life
