Aired 17 March 2020 – 5:00 PM EDT

Interview with Psychotherapist, Author and Men’s Health Expert Jed Diamond

“We’re all in the same boat. The Titanic is sinking. And the lifeboat is the love boat.” — Swami Beyondananda



In many ways, our top-heavy civilization seems like a sinking ship, and the current coronavirus crisis is just – please pardon the awful analogy – the tip of the iceberg.

This current crisis is apocalyptic – in the original meaning of the word, “the lifting of the veils.” The veils are being lifted on the me-first culture and our me-first President, and more specifically we are seeing that the dominate-or-be-dominated worldview is obsolete and obsolethal.

Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week, Jed Diamond, is an expert on men’s health and how we can use both the masculine warrior energy and the feminine nurturer energy to face and embrace the challenges of this new reality.

Jed Diamond, Ph.D., is the Founder and Director of Men Alive, a health program that helps men live long and well. Jed is the author of 17 books including his latest, My Distant Dad: Healing the Family Father Wound (Lasting Impact Press, 2018).

Jed’s previous books include: The Enlightened Marriage: The 5 Transformative Stages of Relationships and Why the Best is Still to Come … The Irritable Male Syndrome and 12 Rules For Good Men. He has been on the Board of Advisors of the Men’s Health Network since its inception in 1992. He is also a member of the International Society of Men’s Health and a founding member of the American Society of Men’s Health. He blogs for the ThirdAge, Huffington Post, BeliefNet, Scribd, and other venues. He is the only male columnist who blogs for the National Association of Baby Boomer Women.

If you’re curious as to how we shift from dueling dualities to dynamic duo dance partners so that the love boat becomes the lifeboat, please tune in.
