On our podcast ‘Tales That Tethr’, tethr Founder & CEO Matt Zerker interviews entrepreneurs, experts, thought leaders, and regular people about what is means to be a man, the challenges that modern men face, and how to overcome challenges and live life in a more connected and authentic way.


Justin Michael Williams is the host of the Kingdom. Read on to learn more about the podcast and how it came to be a part of the tethr family. 

Tell us in your own words what the podcast is about ?

Imagine if church, SuperSoul Sunday, and a TED Talk had a baby. Listen in on the greatest wisdom teachings from all over the world. With live music, special guests, and trusted guidance to make your life better.

Who would you say is your target audience?

People who like to be inspired, but what to turn that inspiration into action.  People who geek out on science, but also like crystals ;) Lesbian, Gay, Trans, Bi, Young, Old, Black, White, Queer, Straight, Broke, and Fabulous... All are welcome to the magic that happens.

Why did you start a podcast?

I teach these sessions with a live audience every Sunday, but I know many people can't attend live, so this is their chance to experience the community afterwards, and on their own time.

What’s the special sauce you bring to every episode?

I felt like there aren't many inspirational, action-oriented, science-based podcasts that weave in spirituality. Most are either way too "woo," or leave no space for grace. The magic of this podcast is the integration of both. I call it "woo-realistic." lol

Tell us about 1 -3 of your fav episodes people can go back and listen to?

The Power of Justice was really deep and special especially during this time of great social unrest. It brings a compassionate approach to help us find our authentic voice in the movement for change. The Power of Transitions was incredibly special, with Chip Conley, to help us understand how to deal with moments of uncertainty. And The Power of Forgiveness - wow, that was a big one.

Why did you join the tethr podcast family?

So much of this work is targeted toward and taught by women, and we in the tethr family have an important role to play in the world and the future of healing for ourselves, our families, and the planet. I've done many, many men's groups and it's almost as if we need to give ourselves permission to heal, which is much easier when you have other guys doing it with you.

Any words for the men in our community?

You are enough. You are worthy. And we rise together.


tethr is the first peer-to-peer support platform that connects men for open conversations about real life. We provide men with a safe, barrier-free online space for open dialogue and genuine support, allowing men to connect deeply with themselves, other men, and everyone their lives touch.
