In this second episode of "Borjouliya," we explore the relationship between fatherhood and masculinity. The upbringing of children, especially boys, by fathers is often based on a toxic masculine mentality that produces emotionally distant men who are incapable of establishing or maintaining meaningful relationships.
This can happen because many men have never had the space or permission - when they were children - to fully express their emotions. This upbringing has a negative impact on boys and their surroundings later in life, as emotionally distant men who refuse to seek help end up creating unhealthy environments for themselves and those around them.
It is undeniable that fatherhood, as a set of practices and identities, is closely tied to motherhood and the traditional gender roles that stem from it. This would explain why fathers are often absent from their children's lives, limiting themselves to a financial role, while other forms of care, both physical and emotional, are usually provided by mothers.
In this episode, we aim to promote an alternative vision of fatherhood, where children can build strong and positive relationships with their fathers, and where parents support and care for them jointly and equitably.
This episode is based on testimonies from men and the analysis of psychologist Sondos Garbouj.
Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab. Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert. Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience. Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process. In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity. These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand. Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
