Meet Akello Stone and go deeper! He is an author, a podcaster, an actor, and host with a ton of heart. Hear about why he became a sociology professor, his thoughts on yoga and meditation, his appearances in documentaries, and his refreshing and unique perspective on masculinity. This youth mentor wrote the book Seeking Selfdom in an Age of Selfies and just published the companion podcast Seeking Selfdom – Going Deeper to explain the book’s intricacies. We talk with him about many topics including tattoos and how they fit into our society, relationships and being solo-minded versus couple-minded, and the perceptions of hair and how it can define a man. We really hope you enjoy this interview and continue the conversation by subscribing to Akello’s podcast. He has a lot of thoughtful and inspiring points of view, and we hope you take part!
