EP27 - Machismo and Toxic Masculinity w/Josh Moldiz

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights", emblematic of the heroic life of Italian mountaineer and social activist Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to raw and authentic conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together!


Josh Moldiz is the co-founder of The Holy Ruckus, co-host of the Podcast, and emerging YouTube sensation (at least in his own mind). After graduating with a degree in Catechetics from Franciscan University of Steubenville, Josh decided he did not like to make money, and began working in ministry full time. He spends his days terrorizing young people by teaching the faith at a Catholic grade school and doing high school youth ministry and coaching football. Most importantly, he's married to his college sweetheart, Emily. Together they are raising three beautiful daughters and two sons, and haven't slept a full night in over a year!

Key Talking Points:

  • What is machismo and how has it played out in our lives?
  • What is the connecting between machismo and toxic masculinity?
  • How can machismo and excessive pride hinder spiritual growth?
