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.

Back by popular demand, Chief Phillip Scott returns to the RMP and offers sage counsel in these highly factionalized times. Do you feel the interconnectedness with ALL of life? If not, deep gratitude, prayer, and dedication to the red road is the path to ultimate connection. Chief Phillip expands on these topics, and reflects on clarifying your vision, re-balancing natural rhythms, and dying a good death.


Show Notes:
