#29 - Toxic Masculinity w/ Slim

Episode Summary

Steve Lim returns as Minji's guest to talk about a topic on both their minds - toxic masculinity. Together, they explore their own early experiences dealing with gendered expectations and how it has shaped their lives, especially as their understanding has become more nuanced over the last few years. While this isn't a new experience by any means, it's a more newly coined term to identify problematic norms and stereotypes that have brought us to our present #MeToo and #TimesUp era.
