Audiofiles: Where The Boys Are

Dec. 2, 2012

Produced by Daisy Rosario and hosted by Adam Warner.

Sports. Guns. Some things just scream machismo. This week, AudioFiles takes a look at a few worlds where men and masculinity are the standard and how that's changing. We’ll learn about gun culture in Missouri and visit an old world "guy hang out" amidst a gentrifying neighborhood. We'll also meet a woman who helps boys from rough neighborhoods become college men through boxing and academics and talk to Cherry Pitz, aka Cyndi Freeman, a performer whose burlesque career started after getting some strange advice. Guitarist Justin King joins us for a live acoustic set in the studio.
