'Cotto/Gottfried': After El Paso and Dayton, it is time to confront America's boy crisis. Warrenn Farrell explains why

This month's mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have massively impacted America's social and political scenes. While much can be said about the uniqueness of each tragedy, there is a common thread which binds them. The shooters in both cases were angry, young, and male; their carnage is symptomatic of a colossal problem with how boys and early adults not only view themselves, but relate to the world around them. 

Warren Farrell is the author of 'The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do about It.' In addition to being perhaps our time's most notable voice concerning the psychological, political, and sociological issues which males face, Farrell was included in the 'Financial Times' ranking of our planet's 100 foremost thought leaders. He joins us on this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried' to discuss the boy crisis and how it produces men that sabotage their own lives, along with the lives of others.
