JCIP #225 – Gar Lock – Part 2


In episode 225 of The Just Checking In Podcast we checked back in with Irish farmer Gar Lock.

We first checked in with Gar in JCIP #196 where we discussed his upbringing which involved criminality, serving prison time and how he turned his life around to become a farmer and a father of five children.

We also discussed the work he has been doing to help other former prisoners to change their lives for the better.

In Part 2, we have a free-flowing conversation about the influence that fitness guru David Goggins has had on Gar’s life, how we tackle the loneliness epidemic in men and how and where men can find meaning if the traditional route of a family is out of reach.

We also discuss how to provide a positive message for men that stops them from falling prey to the problematic online male influencers stepping into the vacuum society has left.

We finish by discussing fatherhood now some of Gar’s children have flown the nest and how he sees his life going forward once all of them have done so.

As always, #itsokaytovent
