On Male Friendships: with Andrew Greig and Michael Pedersen

From the Lantern podcast by the Scottish Poetry Library (listen to the previous episodes HERE): ‘Me and my Dad will just about manage a handshake’. Is male emotionality a barrier we have to break down? And are male friendships changing generationally? Poets Andrew Greig and Michael Pedersen join Scottish Makar Kathleen Jamie and Alistair Heather to examine, through their own work, how relationships between males are depicted in Scottish writing.

    I found this warm thought provoking sometimes uncomfortable but never harsh or unkind

    Why do we have to break down male emotionality?

    What is this mad need to social reengineer society? Which doesn’t work anyway.

    If you go to most non-Western countries you don’t find any if this madness.
