The media generated perception is that men are testosterone driven neanderthals that only think about sex, sports and making money. We are constantly bombarded with negative images about men and violence, greed, infidelity and a host of other social ills. But is this the truth about most men? Are men really that bad?
John Broadbent has committed his life to changing the perception of men and providing them with tools to support them in not acting consistent with the negative media stereotypes. He believes that all men have the capacity to be incredible men but unfortuantely, too many of them do not have the proper tools to support them in doing so.
John has recently released a new book titled Man Unplugged - Exploring The Inner Man which should be required reading for all men who are committed to living extraordinary lives. It is a must have tool for all men who are ready to break free from the antiquated ideas about masculinity and are ready to experience new and better ways of being and relating as men.
Join Coach Michael Taylor as he speaks with John about the changing roles of masculinity and learn why his book and the Mens Movement are so important for men around the globe.

Were having Hydia Broadbent on the show shew going to share her story & were going to ask her a couple of ?'s (:
At birth, Hydeia Broadbent was abandoned at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas where Patricia and Loren Broadbent adopted her as an infant. Although her HIV condition was congenital, she was not diagnosed as HIV-positive with advancement to AIDS until age three. The prognosis was that she would not live past the age of five and as a result became the “test baby” for HIV/AIDS medications, which are currently on the market today. Needless to say, this “test baby” has defied the odds by more than16 years, which is valid proof that HIV/AIDS is no longer a death sentence.
Hydeia’s debut as an HIV/AIDS activist and public speaker began at the age of six during one of her many visits to the hospital. By age 12 she was appearing on national programs including Oprah, 20/20, Good Morning America and “A conversation with Magic Johnson”. Over the next 10 years Hydeia became a notable featured speaker and guest panelist at some of America’s most respected educational institutions: Duke University, Clark Atlanta University, UCLA, USC, and Howard University. Since1996, she has been featured in some of today’s most prominent publications and television programs that include but are not limited to: Essence Magazine, Ebony Magazine New York Times, POZ Magazine, Seventeen, Heart & Soul, Nickelodeon, MTV, and BET. To her credit, she has also been honored with an American Red Cross Spirit Award and a 1999 Essence Award.
