Dr Alex George on Andrew Tate, the pressure to be vulnerable, and how to be an 'elder'

By Global

This week on Who We Are Now with Richard and Izzy Hammond, they ask the question "is it okay to be masculine?". Joined by unlikely Love Island-er, Doctor, and the UK's Ambassador for Mental Health Dr Alex George, they pick apart questions on toxic masculinity, what it means to be a man today, and what do you do if you don't feel like the world belongs to you anymore.
