Robert Webb is a comedian, actor, author and life-long male. His book How Not To Be A Boy looks back across Webb’s life, whilst also considering the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life, and how this shapes boys on their journey into manhood.
In this podcast, recorded from his appearance at Being A Man festival, Webb joins broadcaster Nihal Arthanayake for a frank and funny conversation about not living by the rules of masculinity. Why are boys not supposed to cry? How hard is it to practice gender-neutral parenting? And, what your television says about your social statues.
