Episode 2.04: Mindful Masculinity with Elizabeth Plank

Elizabeth Plank

Hello loves.

Liz Plank is an award-winning journalist and the Executive Producer of Divided States of Women at Vox Media, where she also hosts Facebook Watch’s Consider It. In 2016, Liz presented a TedxTalk, How to Be a Man: A Woman’s Guide, which inspired her first book, For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity. Liz was also named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Media, as well as one of the world’s most influential people in Gender and Policy.

As a regular panelist addressing issues like politics, gender issues, and reproductive rights, Liz realized that to accomplish feminist goals and truly make progress, the other half of the population could not be ignored. It became clear to her that what is needed is an expansion of these conversations to include men while recognizing that they might arrive at these issues from a different place.

Liz is one of my dearest friends and she just lights up the screen with her extraordinary ability to be funny while covering some really challenging topics and I am so happy to have her on the show today. In this episode, we talk about how Liz became interested in activism and journalism, the massive learning experience from writing her book, Liz’s personal experience with dealing with mental health issues, and so much more!

The Pain Points We Explore In This Episode:

  • Liz’s transformative, spiritual experience with writing her book
  • Why Liz finally decided to confront and treat her mental health issues
  • Liz’s experience dealing with the physical symptoms of her mental health issues as a child
  • The consequences of not having a mainstream focus on men’s mental health
