Yesterday he says he was honoured to be joined by his good friend Phil Surry, the founder of Man Club for this week's podcast. He says: “Together, Phil and I explored our own experiences of brotherhood, aspects of masculinity in the 21st century, indigenous culture and ritual, and, of course - how this all fits into the sacred space that is Man Club Guernsey and Alderney. This episode is so powerful and I know you're going to love it. If you enjoyed our chat and would like to support us please comment, share and feedback. It really means the world to me to hear that people are being inspired through the conversations we're holding. The more people that we can reach - the more lives we can touch. Click here.
