Today I talked to Nicole Tersigni about her book Men to Avoid in Art and Life" (Chronicle Books, 2020).

Nicole Tersigni is a comedic writer experienced in improve comedy and women’s advocacy. She lives in metro Detroit with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.

This episode takes a romp through five types of men to avoid like the plague: the mansplainer, the concern troll, the comedian, the sexpert, and the patronize. Tersigni talks through what each type means and an example from her book pairing an older painting (often from either the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Rijksmuseum) with her own contemporary caption. In turn, host Dan Hill adds in what type of emotional response stood out among the women depicted per type of men, e.g. anger in response to mansplainers, contempt for concern trolls, fear in response to sexperts, and the slightest of smiles in dealing with a patronizer.

Dan Hill, PhD, is the author of eight books and leads Sensory Logic, Inc. ( To check out his related “Dan Hill’s EQ Spotlight” blog, visit
