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.

As the founder of the Igknight The King platform, Michael Diamond has a constant stream of men coming to him for guidance around purpose and fulfillment. Many of these men have achieved the traditional, societal definition of success but have found the destination hollow. Our current cultural norms neglect many fundamental truths, to the detriment of all. We talk about how to find meaning in the journey, how to bring sacredness to every interaction, and why we must live at the edge of our comfort zone.
