A Cappella Bros

Ask a Bro is a study of bro culture in all its beefy, V-necked forms.

What is a bro? Does he have to be white? Lacrosse-playing? From Connecticut? Must he wear a backwards baseball hat and demonstrate menace towards women? Does he even have to be a "he"? Ask a Bro explores the branches of brotherhood to arrive at an understanding of this hotly debated male stereotype. In each episode, host Lauren Oyler interviews men from different subcultural groups about life, love, friendship, and working out. This week, the series kicks off at Cornell University, where Lauren embeds with a tight-knit dude community that might be considered the epitome of bro-dom.
