Back in September, I had the privilege to sit down and interview Aboriginal Elder Bob Randall about initiation rites in Aboriginal culture. In this half hour, I was granted a privileged insight into what is essentially a secret tradition of transitioning boys into manhood. Some of what I learned surprised me. Some of what I learned confirmed what I have learned by people such as Robert Bly. Everything was interesting and powerful.
This is the first interview I've ever done for Masculinity Movies. I was a tad nervous when I did it and not fully embodied after a hard day at work. That had me avoid finishing it for a while. But when I reviewed it, I realized that there is a lot of good stuff in here. So you will just have to enjoy my boyish charms instead of my fully embodied masculine presence and enjoy Bob Randall's gift.
