Exploring the Core of the Masculine

Interview – Michael Taylor

Welcome to ‘The MaleXperience Interview Series‘ where I talk to men who are on the edge, men who are making a difference, men who are re-defining what masculinity means. Today I talk to Michael Taylor of the radio show ‘A New Conversation with Men‘.

Michael believes ‘It’s Time For A New Revolution‘. He thinks that every man has the capacity to live an extraordinary life, and that what has been missing is a resource to support them in doing so. His aim is to support, challenge and empower men to live that extraordinary life.

Michael committed years ago to live an extraordinary life, himself, and he lives his dream as an entrepreneur and radio show host.

In this wide ranging interview he looks at the challenges which have brought him to the work he does with men today. He describes his latest project, a TV show for men.
