This week, Aymann talks to a college student named Sammy, who recently had an intense experience: He suddenly cried for the first time in a decade. Sammy wants to replicate it, but he can’t figure out how. First, Aymann and Sammy talk about why so many men resist the urge to cry in the first place, and why relearning how to cry is so much harder than expected. Then they talk to Avi Klein, a therapist who specializes in helping men locate feelings they had long buried.
