Ryan Michler, host/ owner of the successful podcast and blog: The Order of Man is on the show this week. For most of his childhood, Ryan grew up without a permanent father figure, never learning how to work on his own car or even how to properly throw a baseball until high school. Ryan has since dedicated himself to teaching guys the meaning of fatherhood, as well as how to become strong and honorable men outside of the home. In this episode, we’ll be going back to the roots of masculinity and unlocking the true essence of man.
