Porn, UFC and other subjects: series 2 round up

Description:

We're rounding up the second series of Modern Masculinity and want to say thank you for coming on this journey with us. It's been a wild ride, taking in sticky subjects from pornography use to circumcision and how men are targeted in advertising. We've met some incredible characters from Jorge Masvidal and Darren Till at UFC 244 to Tom Rosenthal and Eliyahu Ungar-Sargon. We've met some people doing inspirational work with young men, including John McAvoy on his road to redemption and Mark Maciver at Slider Cuts. But most of all, we've had a great conversation with you and want to say a big thank you for taking part. Peace out, Iman and the team.
