Men make excuses for not putting their wellbeing at the top of the to-do list. We hold things in and rarely have deep conversations with other men. Honestly, it takes balls for men to connect in meaningful ways with other men when it comes to things impacting our lives. That’s part of the reason we created The Dadass Podcast and how CBUS Dads started.
It's also why on Thursday, November 9 we are hosting dadX: Mansplaining Men’s Health. The event will be from 7-9 p.m., and it's worth noting THIS. IS. A. FREE. EVENT.
As you can guess from the name, the name is a subtle nod to hosting a TEDx style event (but don’t tell Ted) with five powerful, short talks from dynamic speakers on a range of relevant topics revolving around men’s health. Thanks too to an epic host location in Leisure Club, this is a casual platform for men to kickstart meaningful conversations.
Here’s what ya need to know:
First, you don’t have to be a dad. This event is for men of all ages, stages in life and who just want to do something other than grow epic facial hair this November
Second, our lineup is stacked. It’s like we had all first-round picks for some sort of fantasy football meets speaker wish list draft. Our speakers include:
Third, we’re hosting this at the legendary Leisure Club, a nostalgically-inspired social membership club, created as an alternative place for folks to relax and unwind. Membership at Leisure Club includes reservation access to the space with BYOB or self-serve options including house coffee and Garage Beer.
Fourth, we’re going to try and take this event and turn it into a special Dadass Podcast episode for us to listen to again and again on our journey to be healthier men. We’re going to record the talks.
Lastly, did I mention this is free to attend? So cost isn’t a barrier for not engaging in this conversation.

CBUS Dads is a community of central Ohio area dads balancing an active lifestyle with being an involved parent. A Saturday for us may involve enjoying morning t-ball, lunch at a new local spot and an evening at a summer festival with our families. We may live downtown, in the suburbs or somewhere between, but our common thread is that we continue to experience the community we love - now as parents.
