Apathy in Your Life: Our Top 10 Podcasts on Fighting Apathy

Dear Arena Men,

Are you a man who fights apathy? Apathy is man's greatest fight. We live in a world of calloused, indifferent, passive men. Tragically, many have succumbed to society's emasculating voices telling them to defer their God-given responsibility to lead. But those voices are liars. Fight against them.

10 years and 500+ episodes make for a LOT of episodes full of wisdom about fighting apathy, so this week, we’ve decided to provide some links to our best stuff. Do you war against apathy? Listen to these to find out where you stand.

[Jim speaks more about why he chose each of these podcasts as his top picks in this week’s Summer Reboot episode, Men in the Arena Top 10 Podcasts on Fighting Apathy.]
