Introducing Boy Trouble

A podcast designed by the Affirmative Feminist Boys Studies research team

Boy Trouble delves into all things boys and boyhood, while taking care neither to pathologize them (Boys are in crisis! Boys are a risk!) nor to romanticise or excuse them (boys will be boys!). At once accessible and nuanced, throughout the series we will cover topics like: online misogyny and the adolescent groupings of men known as “the manosphere”; the experiences of mixed-race boys and boys of colour; boys’ relationship to consent education; elite boys schools and cultures; boy bands; bullying and hazing, and much more.
