How American Masculinity Creates Lonely Men

This week’s NPR hidden brain show gave us a very insightful look at the misguided notions of masculinity in the United States. And we explore new research that studies the consequences - stressed-out romantic relationships, physical health problems and a growing epidemic of loneliness.
