Hey y’all. OBVIOUSLY, this is Joe Tower, the creator of Tales of Male Folly, a storytelling series based in LA that, for the last three years, has upheld the mission of curating content, both live and online, meant to put the shame and embarrassment back into being a man.
You may have noticed on our social media and, here, on our website that we’ve changed our name.
Or, maybe you didn’t. It's slight.
But, maybe you did. The truth is, we’ve been changing a lot. First, a couple years back, we dropped our first show title – Boys Will Be Boys – because of the obvious association with a culture we didn't want to be associated with. Then, more recently, we began incorporating all-female shows, because it felt problematic to be exclusively male, even if the spirit of that has always meant to be tongue and cheek.
See, the philosophy of this show has always been to point a finger at men. But, also, to cut away the social bullshit to bring to light the actual good dudes who are out there in the world.
In this way, it’s become something more, and so we feel the need to change again to stay on what we think is the right side of the culture tide.
From here on out, our show, our podcast, and all our curated content, will be geared toward mining everyone’s daily life for those stories of shame and embarrassment.
Because folly ain't just for boys, anymore.
This… is TALES OF OUR FOLLY.
