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.

While in the body of an NFL lineman, Sanyika’s courageous voice and fierce passion for service is what truly sets this brother apart from the pack. As a storyteller of many mediums, he helps others create a new script for their lives so they can step into leadership. His latest venture is a soulful, heartfelt campaign of service to raise awareness and funds to combat gun violence. Soak up the vibes from Sanyika because we all have a medicine in our hearts that our community’s needs. 


Show Notes:


  • A primal, ancestral energy is created when men gather with powerful intentions.
  • A man has a foundation of meaning, while a boy is seeking meaning
  • Massive shifts happen when we surround ourselves with accountable men
  • What are you willing to give up for something GREATER?
  • Bottled up fear and rage is a time bomb, ready to explode on anyone
  • How can we serve those in this state of repressed fear? Be a space of safety, openness, and transparency.
  • Integrity is not an all or nothing game - we are constantly learning and leveling up
  • The relationship between gun violence, trauma, and masculine expression
  • What type of future do we want for our children? We are CREATING THAT WORLD NOW, with every action and thought we invest in.
  • Is mental illness responsible for every act of gun violence?
  • The importance of community when it comes to violence and outbursts
  • Even if the people in our lives were “perfect”, we would still find something to criticize!!
