We all have a story about what it means to be a man. What we aim to do on The Man Rules podcast is to help each other figure out how we can be the authors of our stories. We don’t want to just mindlessly step into a role that was written for us, centuries ago, based on the needs and values of a world that no longer exists.
Is there any man on Earth, who embodies this struggle more than Santa?
In this episode, Kris Kringle (a.k.a. Santa Claus) sits down with Dan to talk about the darker side of being Santa. Though he considers it an honor to be the world’s ultimate provider, the pressure to always show up as the man we expect to see definitely takes its toll. He talks about his 631-year marriage to Janet, how he let go of perfectionism and shame, his ongoing struggles with body image, and his reckoning with his own mortality.
He also shares some exclusive, never-before-heard secrets of how the Christmas magic really happens.
