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.
Welcome to the Rising Man Movement, where our mission is to initiate a new generation of fiercely loving and confident men. We envision a world in which ALL men are prepared to lead with integrity, express themselves authentically, and serve their communities. We accomplish this mission by covering all aspects of the male experience on the show, including shameless sexuality, masculine/feminine integration, environmental respect, indigenous wisdom, finding purpose, secrets of fatherhood, and much more. Across four segments, we stimulate and inspire men into intentional action. Featuring the top voices in the sexual polarity, men's work, rites of passage, conscious, and personal development worlds, our interviews offer unique perspectives on what it means to be a man. In our OG segment, The Rising Man Podcast (RMP), Rising Man founder and host Jeddy Azuma interviews leaders across a wide spectrum of backgrounds. With a decade of experience in Men’s Leadership and as a Guide, Mentor, and Coach, Jeddy has impacted the lives of thousands of men on a mission to initiate an entire generation of men into power and purpose-driven service. Despite his many roles in men’s work, Jeddy considers his most important jobs to be Father and Husband. Monday Morning Meditation (MMM) episodes are short 6-10 minutes downloads hosted by Jeddy. He brings the inspirational heat and offers a motivational boost for the start of your week! In Rising Man First Nature (RMFN) host Shawn Berry uses the natural world to remind us of our sacred and ancient roots. With conscious gratitude for this connection, we can learn to live in greater harmony with nature’s rhythms. Shawn is a leader and facilitator in The Rising Man’s programming, and we are excited to regularly showcase his expansive wisdom and perspectives. In Fam Life (FL), host Phil Gomez shares the most crucial principles to creating harmonious relationships, walking an authentic path, and amplifying the voices of men of color!
