Other Men Need Help is an award-winning podcast about the emblems, habits, and struts in the male performance.

In each episode, Mark Pagan dissects the ways "other men" avoid accountability, cling to power, mask insecurities, and quietly scream for connection. Other Men Need Help shares these personal tales using a  playful format of documentary, essay, and archive-based storytelling.
