I am glad you are here too!
All over North America, and indeed the world, these two shows are having an impact. Men are starting to realize that they are not as alone as they used to feel, and that there are people who "get it". Locally, a male survivor support group has started when none existed before. One of the participants saw the second show, and knew then and there that he could take back control of his life once and for all. Even in the small city I live in, 2-3 guys a day have been contacting the local sexual assault centre since the shows aired. I am also forecasting another wave of guys will start calling in about 4-5 months, their fuses have been ignited on a slow burn. That's how it happened for me.
As Don pointed out, it was scary to do the shows. Whether seated in the restaurant at the hotel in Chicago, or in the studio, to see all those guys, anxious for sure, but convinced that this was the right thing to do... wow! I still get goosbumps when I look back at what we all did.
GBH I'm glad you managed to find your way here.
