Welcome to the Manlihood ManCast, the podcast for men, where we focus on personal development and explore the stories of men who are making an impact in the world. Today, we’re honored to have with us Morgan Elliott, a filmmaker and Canton native, who directed the documentary “Potty Town.”
Who is Morgan Elliott?
Meet Morgan Elliott, the talented director behind the hit documentary film “Potty Town.” Not only did this film reach the top 15 on the iTunes/Apple chart for documentaries in the U.S., but it is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime. In addition to his work on “Potty Town,” Morgan has a wealth of experience in the film industry as a writer, editor, and cinematographer. He has also served as the DoP on several award-winning short films.
“Potty Town” tells the story of one man’s humorous and sometimes tumultuous journey as he battles small town government officials to preserve his artistic toilet creations and defend his first amendment rights. This quirky film is a must-see for anyone interested in a unique blend of comedy and social commentary.
Morgan Elliott Background
Morgan Elliott is a talented young filmmaker who has always had a passion for storytelling. He grew up in Canton, New York, and after studying film in college, he decided to pursue a career in the industry. He has worked on a variety of projects in the past, but “Potty Town” marks his first time in the director’s chair. He’s excited to share his vision with audiences everywhere, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.
About Potty Town
“Potty Town: Where Protest Meets Porcelain” is a new documentary that tells the story of Frederick J. “Hank” Robar Sr., and his 25-year-long dispute with the Northern New York town of Potsdam. The film recounts how Robar’s first toilet garden was sown when he reportedly asked the town for a zoning change at one of his properties on Market Street. The request was denied due to traffic concerns, but the town approved a Dunkin’ Donuts franchise to open just three blocks away. This led to the start of a porcelain protest that has now grown across six different properties, with the town making several attempts to uproot the flower-filled potties.
The documentary explores the motivations behind Robar’s decision to create the toilet gardens, and how they’ve evolved over time. Morgan Elliot’s film also delves into the impact of the gardens on the local community and the relationship between the town and Robar. This film is a true story of protest and resilience that will have audiences captivated.

His frank but helpful talk about sex and relationships is going VIRAL on social media. With tens of thousands of followers, Ryan Cass Morrow has even ticked off the big tech censors – but his message is not just controversial conversation fodder. He’s just telling his story of how his seriously jacked up relationship got BETTER after he and his wife put in the work.
Cass’s message is blunt and to the point. Many married men are unhappy with their sex lives. They are unfulfilled, and tired of getting “pity sex” from their wives.
After an incredibly difficult and broken relationship with his wife led to frustration and some very toxic situations, Cass and his wife Kathryn took the reins of their marriage and steered it into a better direction.
How to get better sex with your wife
No one wants their wife to feel like sex with them is an obligation.
But what is it they want from us???
That’s the question most men ask. They don’t know or understand that better sex starts when you step fully into bettering yourself as a man, and loving her.
The married relationship between a husband and wife CAN get better, and when it does get better, better sex often follows!
From Broken and Bruised Marriage to Better
Cass and Kathryn separated 7 times in the first 4 years of their marriage, and missed four of their anniversaries.
Cass even had a 30 day restraining order filed against him, and they nearly divorced hundreds of times.
Cass begged for sex, asking “Why don’t you want sex anymore?” “What would turn you on?” “Do you even think I’m sexy?” “Why don’t you want me?”
His anger became ferocious as he felt unwanted, and that pushed her away even more.
