About the show: Dave Pickering takes us on a personal journey through gender as he tries to explain masculinity both to you and to himself. Part true storytelling, part TED talk and part apology, the show looks at how the patriarchy hurts men too; how the patriarchy has hurt him, and how he has hurt people because of patriarchy.

On Wednesday’s I’m sharing articles and other links which touch on issues that crossover with the #ManSurvey that I’ve come across over the last week. Last week’s batch was the first one. I also linked recently to some of the writing that inspired me to make this website/show in the first place.
Here are this week’s links:
Also I’ve been pointed towards Boxed In which is another show and website tackling the subject of gender. The show is being produced by Portmanteau and the website is looking to document and share people’s experiences of gender.
I’ll be writing a post recommending shows which you can see at the Edinburgh Fringe that have the same kind of feel, or touch on the same subjects as my show later this month but since I’m talking shows I’d like to give a shout out to the Kickstarter for Mathilda Gregory‘s How to Be Fat which has 8 days left. The show is going to be really really good so I strongly recommend supporting it.
Also in the conversation I had with Cameryn Moore on last week’s episode of my podcast Getting Better Acquainted I talked about some of the issues I’ve been considering while writing the show. She is another person whose shows I’ll be recommending properly in a future post.
Guest blog posts and analysis of the survey are still very welcome. And please do get in touch if you use the #ManSurvey as research, as reference, as teaching material or in any other way, I am really happy to signal boost and link to what you are doing.
