What does it mean to be a man in the year 2013?  How does today’s man adjust to changing attitudes about sexuality, gender identity and masculinity?  How does it change the way he interacts with his family and circle of friends?  What’s the relationship between masculinity and violence, fatherhood, feminism and intimacy?  On this episode of Dialogue, Matt Shafer Powell speaks with Roane State Community College Psychology Professor Jim Doyle, who has spent decades researching the roles of men in American society.

This year, WUOT Producers Matt Shafer Powell and Leslie Snow sat down with five East Tennesseans to hear their stories about living with HIV.  In the WUOT radio documentary "I'm Still Here: My HIV Life", each speaks frankly about the grief, pain and hope that accompany their diagnoses.
