So far in this series we’ve taken an in-depth look at both Odin and Thor. We’ve been through their stories, and figured out some ways in which their mythological examples can help men be better men. Those two are truly the titans of Norse mythology. We’ll end this series by offering two shorter profiles of a couple of figures who don’t star as prominently in Viking tales, but still offer insight into Norse culture and masculinity: Tyr and Loki. The former provides a mythological example of ho
Sometimes when I’m lying in my bed falling asleep, a thought will come across my mind: at this moment tens of millions of people are going completely unconscious and immobile and having crazy hallucinations. Because if you think about it, that’s what happens when you fall asleep. And you pretty much go to sleep whenever everybody in your timezone or near your timezone goes to sleep too.
But my guest on today’s podcast argues that we take our current sleep schedule for grante
Editor’s note: To help you dress for your part and nail the mission-critical details of dressing for a summer wedding, we’ve tasked Huckberry’s Managing Editor Zach Pina with assembling a list of a few of his essentials and style favorites from the Huckberry store.
First rule about wedding attendance: it’s not your day. Sure, the bride and groom need to be the center of attention, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still stand out a little amongst the sea of ill-fitting khakis and untuck
Last month we did an article about your great-grandpa’s daypacks — the small bags that soldiers and outdoorsmen of yore used to carry essential supplies for fighting, hunting, and exploring. Part of the rationale men gave for using these bags was that it wasn’t possible or desirable to carry everything in their pockets — small items were hard to dig out and heavy items weighed down their clothing.
That article got me wondering: when and why did men give up carrying bags in favor of to
Earlier this year when I made a video about how to plan your week, several viewers commented on the terrible Quasimodo-like hunched back I displayed. As a guy who spends much of his time sitting slumped over a laptop, I was aware I had developed a terrible slouch. And I wasn’t proud of it. Not only did it make me look unconfident and lazy, little did I know, my poor posture was also wreaking havoc on my upper body flexibility. I discovered this while filming another video — this time on how t
Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Jason Fitzgerald.
Over the last five years, obstacle course races have evolved from a fringe sport to a normal weekend hobby.
Enter any Warrior Dash and you’ll see athletes of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels on the starting line ready to cross the race off their bucket list. In fact, many of the runners at these events have only done a handful of road races and wouldn’t even classify themselves as “runners.” <
In a previous video, I provided a summary of the definition of traditional masculine honor. In today’s video, I discuss the specific components of a man’s code of honor. I make the case that an honor code should combine “hard” traits — or what author Jack Donovan calls the “tactical virtues” in The Way of Men — with the “softer” traits of moral virtue and intellect.

Known to his friends as “the wolf,” Jack London would always remind them that “we are dying, cell by cell, every minute of our lives.” He was thus determined to make the most of every day he was given. London took pride in “the captaincy of his own powers,” and subscribed to the maxim that “Satisfaction
World record-setting powerlifter Chris Duffin embodies what Teddy Roosevelt called “the strenuous life.” Not only has he trained hard to lift superhuman amounts of weight, but he’s strived to be the best man he can be in his family and professional life. Chris came from a life of poverty, but through grit and drive he’s been able to create a great life for himself and his family. You’ve got to read his backstory; if there’s such a thing as a self-made man, Duffin is it. Chris and I talk about
There is perhaps no finer way to spend a summer evening than grilling and enjoying the fruit of your efforts with friends and family. Doing so of course requires a properly functioning grill. Gas grills often have a long lifespan, but that can be shortened if you don’t clean and maintain yours regularly. Burners can get dangerously clogged, gunk can build up so much that it causes small fires, and rust can take over your once-beautiful cooking machine. Luckily, maintenance and cleaning d
