Well, another year here at the Art of Manliness is in the books. We’re taking a break from publishing until the new year so we can spend time with family and friends, as well as plan for 2016. While we’re gone, take a look at our round-up of the very best of the Art of Manliness in 2015.

It’s been fun to watch the AoM Podcast come into its own this year. What started out as a little side project back in 2009, grew into a larger component of the site in 2015. We’re now publishing two podcasts a week and the podcast is consistently in the top 100 in the iTunes Store. This year I worked to improve the quality of both the audio and the interviews themselves, and I’ll continue to try to make the show better and better.
This year we had many great guests come on the podcast to talk about a variety of topics on how to become a better man. Here are a few of my favorites:
If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to the Art of Manliness podcast. It’s a great way to get your AoM fix while commuting or working out.
Also, we’d really appreciate if you’d give the podcast a review in iTunes or Stitcher.
I slowed down with the videos this year. Instead of putting out one new video a week, towards the end of the year it was more like once a month. I’ve only got so much time in the day and videos take a lot of time to produce, especially if you want them to be top notch. And well, I just don’t enjoy making them as much as I do creating articles and podcasts! We’ll continue to produce videos on AoM, it will just be from time to time. With that said, we did create some great vids on a wide variety of topics this past year. Here are our favorites:
