068 - The 21st Century Man with Mark Halvorson

Episode Summary

Hello listeners! We're back another week and this time we had a conversation with Mark Halvorson! Mark is a computer hardware & software design engineer by trade, and an entrepreneur. He just started his third business called OkWhereSanDiego.com which helps native San Diegans, and visitors explore San Diego. It’s a database of things to do, but with each experience it provides all the needed info so there is nothing left to do but to just go have fun. He’s also a Renaissance Man who has been able to put in his 10,000 hours in variety of areas that are all converging at this moment of his life and making his next venture possible. He is in the process of writing a book called “The Badass 21st Century Man Handbook.” This book is the first of it’s kind. It helps men drop the straightjacket all men wear and helps them finish the job of becoming whole and complete men, who can thrive here in the 21st century where the rules have changed. Listeners, this conversation with Mark happened outside of the coffee shop because there was a lot of music and chatter, so you will hear this time some outside noises like cars, trucks and buses driving by. Content warning ahead, if you have the little ones in the car, please be mindful Mark and I talked a lot about human sexuality and he explained this fascinating method he came up with of identifying human identity. I first met Mark at my Toastmasters group and when he first showed me this method, I figured it was an important resource to share as support for the LGBTQ community in advocacy to end the intolerance they constantly with, as well as support social equity for everyone. I want to highlight that Mark’s hand exercise is simply to help us understand other humans and prevent our own internal questioning about their identity. Ultimately, I want to encourage everyone to always respect individual’s preferences when it comes to identity labels, always ask, and please respectful, particularly with controversial ones (or ones with troubled histories) like "queer" or "fag." Also, Mark and I talked about his new book the badass 21st-century man handbook and he shared his insight about the men confusion syndrome. Let me know what you think about this episode!
