Men Working with Men to End Violence Against Women

Nov 16, 2005 by Bill

This podcast was done at the recent Roots to Wings Battering Intervention conference held in Dearborn Michigan in early November. I interview John Beams and Bob Paskoff about their early days working with men to end violence against women. Unfortunately, I lost the second half of John Beams story due to a mic problem, so his comments are just a taste of the good ideas he shared.

To encourage people to test the service, you can make an interview of yourself talking with Bush and then email to friends and colleagues. The built-in mic on the machine I made it on wasn’t great, but for an experiment it should be okay…
