Everyday Sexism

On this week’s episode, we talk sexism. In Everyday Sexism, Laura Bates describes the topic of her book as little pinpricks—the inappropriate contact disguised as a friendly touch, the vulgar shoutout about our body, the overly-sexualized images in advertising, and the “second shift” we are taxed with at home are all examples of the everyday sexism that women endure.

Breaking Bad (Habits)

On this week’s episode we talk breaking bad habits in life & love. It’s often said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. As creatures of habit & because new things are scary, we often find ourselves “talking”, but not doing, stuck in ruts that we know we shouldn’t be in, and afraid to do things differently.

Jump with Balance

On this week’s episode, we talk the work-life-love balance. The concept of work-life balance seems elusive with all the priorities competing for our time—demanding bosses, family obligations, energetic kids—while we are doing our best to maintain fleeting love and social lives. It’s impossible to manage it all without experiencing some amount of burnout, or worse, failing yourself and those you love.

Women Know Best

On this week’s episode, we talk the female sixth sense. It may be a myth but it is often noted that women inherently have an intuitive ability to perceive the thoughts and feelings of others.

Adulting 101

On this week’s episode, we talk what it really means to be an adult. Adulting is hard. We never would have been in such a rush to grow up if either of us had known it’s more about scheduling doctors’ appointments for yourself and transferring money from savings to checking (more than we’d like to admit), than it is about staying up late to eat ice cream whenever we want.

Protect Your Rep

On this week’s episode, we talk protecting our rep. Some of the best advice I ever received was to remember that many of the decisions about my career would happen when I wasn’t in the room, meaning what people say about you when you are not in the room, matters as much or sometimes more, than what you say for yourself when you’re present.
