Movember Radio: Continuing the Conversation
Men’s Health week, the Movember Foundation has launched its first radio podcast. Those in Singapore can listen to the weekly episodes at radio.movember.com and through iTunes.
The podcast – Movember Radio: Continuing the Conversation – will air stories from men around the world who share personal, empowering and often funny narratives behind the experiences, people and decisions that have shaped their lives. These are real men talking about real issues. Running all year, each week the series will feature a one-on-one interview, hosted by Mo Bro and TV personality Osher Günsberg.
Listen to the episode with Singapore Mo bro, PJ Roberts, ESPN TV Presenter, former football (soccer) player and testicular cancer survivor here. PJ shares his personal experience from finding out how he found out he had testicular cancer and how he had dealt with it.
Adam Garone, CEO and co-founder of the Movember Foundation, says men often compare themselves against a masculine ideal which values power, strength, control and invincibility. He shares, “As men, we often don’t like talking about how we’re feeling or discussing the impact of significant life events such as the breakdown of a relationship, loss of a job or becoming a father, but the reality is that we all go through tough times. It’s how men deal or don’t deal with these moments that has an affect on mental health and, unfortunately, suicide rates.”
“Our aim for the Movember Radio podcast is to share the ‘hairy’ tales that inspire men to have real conversations and make simple changes that can lead to a big difference to their lives and their families,” said Garone.
