By Diana Brown
June 26, 2021
Studies show that men are more reluctant to go to the doctor, leading to bigger problems later in life. So June was declared National Men’s Health Month to raise awareness about health issues all men face and encourage men and boys to keep up with regular checkups and screenings. But it’s never a bad time to examine exercise routines, nutrition, mental health, and social health, too; men’s health isn’t just about avoiding diseases. These four podcasts are dedicated to an all-around look at men’s health, covering not only sweet workout tips and supplement advice, but also digging into the psyche, overcoming obstacles, looking at men’s experience with parenting and marriage, male friendships, and more. Listen, learn, and get hot as health!
Tom Holland might not be Spider-Man, but he is an internationally-recognized fitness expert, author, and elite endurance athlete who competed in 26 Iron Man triathlons, so you could call him your friendly neighborhood fitness consultant.

Want to know about cycling? What about resistance bands? Fruit and vegetable supplements? Solid warmup drills to avoid injury? The three worst pieces of fitness advice?

Psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb and therapist Guy Winch have been helping people for years through their advice columns. But on their podcast Dear Therapists, they get to go a lot deeper with their “fellow travelers’” problems. Each episode, they tackle an issue – cheating spouses, DNA bombshells, gender transitions, relationship issues, parenting problems, chronic illness – guiding the caller in real time. But they also invite them back to share what worked, what didn’t, and how it all worked out. The stories are interesting enough to get you hooked, but you’ll be surprised what you can learn about yourself and your own issues by listening to how others work out their own.

Paul Scheer talks about his relationship with his dad. Tia Mowry discusses childhood fame. Rob Lowe gets into sobriety. Basically, it’s full of hilarious personal anecdotes and candid conversations offering an unfiltered look at life, work, parenting, responsibilities, hobbies, Dad bods, and more.
NHL great Brooks Laich and award-winning musician Gavin DeGraw want to help us all understand How Men Think, so on their podcast, they bring on guests like former NFL tight end Michael Caussin, Gilmore Girls star Scott Patterson, N*Sync member Joey Fatone, country star Tyler Rich and many more for frank and sometimes profound discussions on parenting, sports, sex, relationships, flirting, success, money, health, friendships, communication, life and work balance, and happiness. Learn a little and laugh a lot as they share their unfiltered thoughts on haircuts, thirst traps, communication, first date horror stories, and everything else men think about.
