Being a Woman... for Men

Welcome to Being a Woman… For Men. A show where a guy, me, Ethan Banville, talks to women about obstacles they’ve faced in their lives and careers just for being women. Don’t worry, dudes and bros, this show isn’t a bunch of angry people screaming into a microphone. It’s a casual, funny and informative hour where I talk with executives, comedians, teachers, writers, lingerie makers, athletes and more who share life experiences that women don’t normally share with men. That’s right, we’ve got the secrets! The keys to forming stronger peer relationships with the opposite sex! And ladies, we’ve got amazing guests with relatable stories that you’ll love, too! You are not alone!
