Going Mental with Dr Tara Palmatier and Paul Elam: Abusive Women, Smart Men, Bad Choices

March 19, 2014 2 comments

Going Mental 01Whatever your feelings about relationships, there is no doubt that men’s lives with women can be both crazy and comical — sometimes both at the same time, sometimes not.

For a thousand arguable reasons, it is our relationship lives where logic often goes out the window and all things limbic have a way of taking over. That is true for both sexes, and it can have not only a profound impact on mental health, but on the lives of the people involved.

The world spends a nauseating amount of time obsessing on women’s experience in this area. But, at the risk of sounding cliché, what about the men?

While more people are becoming aware of men’s issues, they still suffer neglect.

Responding to that deficit is the aim of a new live Google Hangout with Dr. Tara Palmatier and Paul Elam, “Going Mental,” a program about how men experience modern relationships, good, bad or indifferent. The show debuts today, Wednesday, March 19 at 1 PM Pacific, 3 Central and 4 Eastern Time on Shrink4Men and on AVoiceforMen.

The first program will include a brief discussion about the show, followed by a discussion between Paul and Dr. T on the reasons so many men make themselves unnecessarily vulnerable, emotionally and legally, to women; the failure of many men to establish and hold fast to limits with what they will tolerate, and why all of this happens.

We are also going to focus on what can be done about it.

Please feel free to join us as we explore the side of men that most people know about but few discuss. You can watch the show live in the viewer below or at a later time that is more convenient for you.

For those who like to download podcasts to listen to on your commutes or at the gym, you will be able to do so on the Live365 AVoiceforMen Channel.

MWT Radio Tonight: Lake Tantrum Special with James Mongiat

August 1, 2013 3 comments

radio4James Mongiat became so accustomed to his wife Whitney’s childish fits that he decided to video one of them in order to show people just how out of control and immature she really is. He posted the video on YouTube and it went viral.

It also sent Whitney to an attorney, and set the “guys are always wrong” media machine into full overdrive. James has been lambasted by white knights and other elements in the media about as mature as Whitney since the video made such a splash.

As we all know that is not an unusual turn of events for men dealing with abusive women.

We welcome you to join Paul Elam and Dr. Tara Palmatier for a special episode of Man, Woman, Truth Radio, where we will interview James Mongiat, to get what the mainstream won’t ever give him, a fair chance to tell his side of the story in full. Needless to say, there is a whole lot more to this story than what you saw on the video. According to James, the behavior captured in the lake tantrum video is benign compared to the the other abuses and domestic violence he has suffered while married to Whitney, which will be all to familiar to Shrink4Men readers.

The show airs tonight (Thursday, August 1st) on blogtalkradio at 6pm PST/7pm MST/8pm CST/9pm EDT. We will be taking calls. The call in number is 310-388-9709.
