Nick Coughlin long felt there was nothing in media that he could actually relate to. Most of them serve up a juvenile, shallow version of masculinity, and they actually poke fun of anything that doesn’t fit the whole macho narrative.
He wanted to read less about “How to Grill a Whole Baby Pig” (how is grilling a baby animal manly, again?), and more about good men who are helping pigs, or just generally making the world a kinder place. He wasn’t interested in the playbook to “Hit It Off with 6 Eager Women.”He wanted to learn how to cultivate a rich relationship with one good woman.
So, he created Compassionate Man as a way to learn tangible life skills from the best, most inspiring men in the world.
