Nelufar talks to the author of “I Hate Men” and a roundtable of men about “lad culture,” feminism, and gender equality.

Host Nelufar Hedayat looks at the evolution of masculinity and what—if any—role men have in within the feminist movements. First she hears from British comedian David Baddiel about how he went from being a “lad” comic to someone acutely aware of gender dynamics.

Then, Nelufar speaks with French writer and activist Pauline Harmange, who argues that modern men have no place in feminism.

Finally, she convenes a roundtable of men from around the globe to hear their perspectives on how to change male culture to be more inclusive and how men can fight for gender equality. Roundtable guests include Mazin Jamal, Satchit Puranik, and Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic.

About Course Correction:  Many of the world's biggest issues are also the most polarizing so in the second season of Doha Debates' podcast Course Correction, host Nelufar Hedayat is trying to open her mind — to people she disagrees with. Many of the world's biggest issues are also the most polarizing, so in each episode, Hedayat explores one of those topics and talks to people who challenge her views. She’ll talk to activists, authors, scientists and even a former head of state, looking for advice on how to be more inclusive of people whose views she opposes. And in each episode, she'll work to identify solutions and bridge gaps on divisive issues like reparations and race, COVID policy and the limits of free speech.  See All Episodes
