We were introduced to Johnny Berba through a fan of the show. He said “you gotta check out this pickup artist who quit the industry to focus on self love and healing emotional trauma.” We were skeptical to say the least but when we watched the videos we were sent everything changed.


Now he’s a dating and life coach that can teach you how to attract people naturally - no tricks, no lures, no manipulations or pickup lines - just through being yourself, being honest and direct, standing confidently. Being the true you.


There’s a lot of bullshit out there in the dating world. But everything that Johnny is bringing to the conversation rings through to us - we hope you’ll enjoy.

The ManTalks Podcast - 63: Joe Solmonese

Joe Solmonese is a fighter. Just ask President Obama (we talk about this in the interview). 

Under Joe Solmonese's leadership, the Human Rights Campaign (the largest LGBT civil rights organization in the United States) became the model other organizations look toward to create effective social and political change. By using the anger raging from the social injustices he was witnessing, the anger of his adversaries and his followers, HRC was instrumental in passing landmark national legislation such as the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act; repealing “Don't Ask, Don't Tell”; and passing marriage equality acts in eight states.

How did Solmonese do it?

In our interview Solmonese tells Roger that for him, the key to success was learning to harness his anger. Essentially it's just a form of energy. Channeled, it can keep you moving forward on a long journey. But uncontrolled, it can blow everything up.

  • Can you describe your book? (24:39)

Did you know you can learn the best time to eat lunch, ask for a raise, have sex, write a novel, take your meds and more? 

In this episode Roger talks to Dr. Michael Breus. Dr. Breus is a sleep specialist and has written a new book called The Power of When - its currently the #1 book on Amazon in the Time Management category. 


In The Power of When Dr. Breus talks about chronotypes.

What is a chronotype? Your body has been programmed to function much better at certain times of the day than others. Based on general morningness and eveningness preferences, different people fall into different classifications, called "Chronotypes”.

There are four Chronotypes (Dolphin, Lion, Bear, and Wolf), and most people fit into the “Bear” category. You can even take a free quiz to learn which of the four chronotypes you are.

If you have never heard of Mark Manson before then get ready. 

For decades we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. But those days are over. “Fuck positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest; sometimes things are fucked up and we have to live with it.” For the past few years, Manson—via his wildly popular blog—has been working on correcting our delusional expectations for ourselves and for the world. He now brings his hard-fought wisdom to this groundbreaking book and we talk all about it (plus dig into Mark's life) on today's episode.
