The Rising Man Podcast

Welcome to “The Rising Man Podcast,” a platform where amazing men from all walks of life come to share their personal stories about the journey from boy to man, the challenges, triumphs, and insights they’ve experienced, and what they’ve learned along the way. Here we dive deep into masculine culture to identify what it really means to be a man in the modern world and to extract tips and tools to help EVERY man rise into greatness and become the man he is destined to be.

Mark Winkler has been working with at-risk youth, connecting fathers, and uplifting the masculine for decades. We are honored to have him here, championing fatherhood and all those dedicated to serving future generations. There are countless young adults and children struggling due to a lack of positive male role models, and solving this is paramount to the RMP’s mission. Mark also dispels the notion that biology is the most important aspect of fatherhood, advocates for full expression in all men, and teaches us how to create safety for women.  


Show Notes:

  • A man never loses his sense of playfulness and youthful energy
  • Why love has the potential to transform everything and everyone
  • Fatherhood is for everyone, regardless of whether or not we biologically have a child
  • A step father is a father who STEPPED UP
  • A father teaches one to be the best version of themselves
  • How our youth will benefit from this movement and conversation
  • Why it’s poisonous to withhold our expression
  • A true leader gives praise freely and supports his community
  • Providing for our love ones is the priority, the rest is bullshit
  • Your life won’t improve without your active participation
  • The first medicine of men is RELATABILITY
  • Creating safety for women is our goal, and it becomes more obvious when we have a daughter
