The Stand Up Tragedy podcast is putting out some of our 2015 shows that were about identity. The first episode was Stand Up Tragedy Presents: How To Be Fat. The second episode was Stand Up Tragedy Presents: Howl of the Bantee which is a show that intersects in many ways with my show and is concerned with many of the same issues. The third episode went out last Friday and is Stand Up Tragedy Presents: What About the Men? Mansplaining Masculinity.
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.
