The Beta Male Revolution with Billy Eldridge | Ep 15

Are you a Beta or an Alpha? Are you not quite sure what these terms mean? How can you be the best Beta or Alpha within your family? In this podcast episode, I speak with Billy Eldridge about the Beta Male Revolution.

  • What does beta male mean?
  • What is an alpha male?

The beta male represents a different type of masculinity that is no less powerful or wholesome than being an alpha male – they are simply two different ways in which some men conduct themselves in the world.

The beta males are generally more empathetic, and in modern society where the perception of what it means to be a ‘strong male’ is skewed, beta males sometimes struggle to assimilate that identity


There are just some personality types that are more go-getter; they lead teams and corporations, they push boundaries, and find meaning in working hard. Sometimes, however, they may lack skill in being empathetic.

For Billy, when you pair an alpha and a beta, they bring the best of both and create a powerful team. It is merely a lens to look at these different personalities and how they can work together beneficially.


“If you’re an alpha and you’re like ‘what the heck are these guys talking about’ come hang out with us. We’re open to pushback, we like having open and honest conversations with everyone in a respectful environment.” 

Billy and Brandy discuss marriage, life, relationships, and people that are either betas or alphas and how you can be the best of them within your family.
