Connor Beaton – On Fatherhood (interviewed by Ian MacKenzie)

May 3, 2021

This week, something unique in the ManTalks podcast’s history! Shortly after my son was born, Ian MacKenzie over at The Mythic Masculine proposed we switch chairs; he’d come on the show and interview ME on my recent entry into fatherhood. We cover what it’s been like so far, what I’ve learned, what led me and my wife to the decision of having a child, and much, much more. If you’re a new parent or know someone who’s “parent-curious”, share this one!

Ian MacKenzie is a visionary filmmaker and writer who lives on the Salish Sea with his young son. He is the founder of The Mythic Masculine podcast, which features conversations on mythology, culture, and emerging masculinities. 

For over 10 years, he’s been tracking the global emergence of new culture. From the desert of Burning Man to the heart of Occupy Wall St, he has sought and amplified the voices of visionaries, artists, and activists who have been working toward planetary system change.

Ian is best known for his films Sacred EconomicsLost Nation RoadAmplify HerDear Guardians, and Occupy Love (directed by Velcrow Ripper), and the forthcoming Love School. You can explore most of his filmsessays, and talks on his official website.
