Although crying is natural, there are still many signs and messages that strong men don’t cry.

Many parents raise their sons to cry privately, if at all.  It has been ingrained in many men, at an early age, that masculine identity means holding back the tears except during times of extreme grief.

With many men who hold back the tears or curtail their emotion, is it any wonder why  many may be  suffering from mental, physical, and spiritual health issues ?

Well, on this episode, in the first hour, we’re going to discuss this very topic with the cast of “THE THINGS THAT MAKE MEN CRY” which opens in Los Angeles on November 1, 2013.  We will discuss this powerful new play, which deals with the complexities of men who internalize their emotions.

In the second hour, we are honored to have one of the nation's leading clinical psychologists, Dr. Gloria Morrow, who will discuss the parallels of her work and being co-producer of “Things That Make Men Cry”.  Dr. Morrow will provide information that is sure to help many men who suffer in silence when it comes to their emotional well-being.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, for “Real Men Don’t Cry: A Cultural Fable”

9pm Pacific/ 11pm Central/ 12 Midnight Eastern
