Embracing Masculinity: The Warrior Poet Way with John Lovell – ETB #173

John Lovell, the inspiring force behind the Warrior Poet Society, is joining me on the podcast. John’s remarkable background as a former Army Ranger and special operations soldier, combined with his passion for masculinity and fatherhood, has propelled him to become a sought-after speaker and mentor. John is on a mission to redefine what it means to be a man in today’s world so we can start embracing masculinity again. We dive deep into the balance between strength and sensitivity, the importance of being a protector and provider, and the invaluable role of fathers in shaping the next generation.
