#93 Nothing Is Impossible

Standard

In this final episode of the “man box” season, Sam and I reflect on the season – what it’s been like to sit across from someone of another gender and talk about gender issues – and we issue a challenge to all of you to do the same. We offer some suggestions based on our experience – our successes and failures – and close with Sam’s thoughts on what he’s learned from this experience. Enjoy!

Unraveling Pink will return in the Fall.
