Boy energy abounds in this special Father's Day Show honoring men and boys and the women that love them. Join us as we discuss the art of being and raising a boy with Roger Martin and Drew Wing of Boys To Men and martial arts expert, Dameron Midgette, from Body Knowledge: three inspiring fathers who share what it takes to become a confident, healthy, and dynamic man in the 21st century.

Roger graduated magna cum laude from Assumption College with a mathematics degree in 1985.
He is a Fellow to the Society of Actuaries, where he serves as Chairman of the Group Long Term Disability Committee.

Our next featured guest is Dameron Midgette. Dameron Midgette is the owner of Body Knowledge. Dameron is "madly in love with life." He's spent most of it so far exploring, discovering how things connect and expanding his capacity for experience. He has recently acknowledged that understanding is much less valuable than feeling and experience. A lot of the exploration has heavily involved that basic canvas of living, the body. As the physical home, display, and memory of our unconscious and conscious actions, it is a rich and useful terrain.
With a formal background in exercise science, martial arts, bodywork, movement therapy, dance, competitive athletics, and various spiritual lineages, many perspectives inform his approach to health and living in the world. He currently teaches group classes in martial arts and fulfilling our ultimate physical and creative potential, as well as seeing individual clients for specific work resolving old patterns and re-discovering choice, freedom and health.
