The Art of Manliness Podcast Episode #5: The Cultural History of the Beard with Allan Peterkin


Welcome back to another episode of the Art of Manliness podcast! In this edition, we talk about the history of beards and facial hair with Allan Peterkin, author of 1000 Beards: The Cultural History of Facial Hair. Find out why popes are beardless, what psychologists have said your beard unconsciously says about you, and why politicians don’t have beards anymore.

You can buy a copy of Allan’s book from Amazon.
