Join Gus Worland, The Honourable Julian Leeser and as well as a panel of experts and other guest interviews this Saturday 12th November between 12 noon and 3pm on TripleH 100.1fm.

The International Men’s day Website calls for
- Improving Relations between men and women
- Addressing the problems and Challenges men face
- Promoting gender equality
- Highlighting positive male role models
- Creating a safer, better world
We hope what you will find is a show that touches on all those things and takes them all deeper to show we don’t’ just want a better we want true, real, honest, which means we sometimes have to be raw and vulnerable. As you can see there are many services that can support in this process.
