Real STUFF with Hunter Johnson
Real STUFF is a fresh new podcast by Hunter Johnson, Founder and CEO of two organisations redefining masculinity; The Man Cave, and STUFF™.
Breaking open the ‘real man’ stereotype by talking about ‘Real STUFF.’
Real STUFF is a fresh new podcast by Hunter Johnson, Founder and CEO of two organisations redefining masculinity; The Man Cave, and
STUFF™. As the world changes and power jostles for position behind purpose, masculinity as we know it has reached an inflection point. The typecast REAL man is not working for the planet, not working for communities and families, and it’s not working for men.
Hunter is no stranger to initiating vulnerable conversations. He has spent significant time in the ring when it comes to emotions, having worked with over 20,000 young men across Australia through The Man Cave Programs. With suicide being the leading cause of death for men under 45, and one woman murdered by her intimate partner every week in Australia, can talking about what’s really going on for men break the cycle? Hunter believes it can.
Real STUFF brings wisdom to the wisecracks, and checkmate to the chat… although there’s no shortage of banter in the fortnightly episodes.
Dyl Buckley and Dan Gorringe of List Cloggers fame are well adept at shooting rapid-fire banter and self-effacing quips down the mic, and are the first to step up and support causes like The Man Cave. In this chat, Hunter goes deep into how these footy legends support each other and their own mental health… and frankly we all get a bit choked up.
Hunter digs into the transformation of masculinity with one of the leaders of the movement, Tom Harkin, founder of Tomorrow Man. The mutual respect between Hunter and Tom allows a cut-to-the-chase deep dive into the journey to manhood in all its beauty, bravery and bullshit.
In this chat with the iconic Bombers captain Dyson Heppell, we discuss club culture, keeping perspective and not letting fame go to your head (with or without dreads). A corker for anyone wanting to understand what high performance looks like when it comes to competing in elite teams.

Being a male's like I don't need help. I'm fine. I'll figure it out. Six months go by... I'm still in the same spot. Just don't think about it. Have a big weekend. Forget about it. And then you get to Monday, and those problems are still there.
The worst thing was I didn't really reach out to anyone. And I wish I did. I 100% wish I did.
“I worry that as we move towards being very conscious as a society and open minded and really wanting to include everybody, everybody must be included. I worry that what gets swept up in that is nobody should feel uncomfortable.
Anything that makes somebody uncomfortable should really be neutralized. Comfort is not a sustainable way to live life. The one thing that is guaranteed is we won't feel comfortable.“
