MMA and Masculinity - Interview on the Canadian Broadcasting Centre with Pedro Mendes

I was fortunate to be interviewed by Pedro Mendes of the Canadian Broadcasting Centre a few days ago regarding mixed martial arts and its connections to masculinity.

Mendes was particularly interested in MMA and its attendant social influences because the sport is continuing its push into Canada, and more specifically, into Ontario.

The interview lasted around 30 minutes, but with limited time for his piece, they packaged it into a podcast that lasts approximately 4 minutes. Click on the link, below, to listen in:

Mendes features a podcast every Tuesday titled, "
