episode no. 016 // why women treat other women like shit
In response to our last mini-series on toxic masculinity, we heard from our audience that there seemed to be some looming questions about why women might be unfair, harsh, judgment, or generally terrible to other women. We interviewed women in our communities and learned a lot about what it’s like for them in the work place and how unsettling it is when women treat other women like shit. We break down what we believe is happening in these dynamics and how to heal them.

episode no. 015 // toxic masculinity // rape + consent
We are on a roll when it comes to this topic! In this mini-series, we’ve talked about what toxic masculinity is by definition, the way it plays out in women’s lives, and now we are discussing how it can escalate very quickly into the rape culture that we find all over the world. Erin talks through the legitimacy of old excuses we’ve made for violence against women and Quincee shares research on sex, consent, and why this is important to talk through as a community. We work to create a meaningful understanding of toxic masculinity that gives women language to advocate for themselves, see power dynamics that play out in their lives, and find ways to continue having conversations within their relationships and communities.

episode no. 008 // a mini series: quincee's story // sexuality in the church + purity culture
This week, we jump into the long-term effects that growing up in a conservative Church background had on Quincee + Erin. Quincee shares a horrifying experience in college with a mentor and leader that caused anxiety, self-doubt, and tension in a meaningful friendship. We talk about the messages women receive about budding sexuality while growing up in religious environments and the impact this has on understanding needs, wants, and basic humanity while navigating adult relationships. We talk seriously about the messages that LGBTQIA+ individuals receive in these environments and the unhealthy impact these messages has on mental, sexual and spiritual health. We discuss creating safe environments for all sexual identities, preferences, and orientations.

episode no 007 // mini series: quincee's marriage // trusting your gut
This week we take a deeper dive into the messages that women receive on the daily basis about distrusting their gut instincts. We hear narratives about women being crazy, hysterical, or overreacting to situations. This all leads us to feel like our gut instincts (the things that tell us that something just isn't right) have major flaws. This disrupts how we make every decision. We are forced to move toward relying on others for validation or reassurance, rather than trusting ourselves. We take a look at where Quincee learned to distrust her gut and the ways this impacted the decisions she made leading up to the wedding and in marriage. Now that you've heard the story of her marriage unfold, we are taking a look at the aftermath.

This week we talk about the intricacies of Quincee's background and her whirlwind marriage. We are talking about the difficulties in trying to honor an impossible purity culture, while also taking seriously some concerns during the engagement. Quincee + Erin talk about the impact of loneliness and lack of community when trying to make sense of trauma, financial abuse, and sexuality. This is an up close look at one woman's journey to understand her traumatic marriage as she looks back on her experiences and memories from eight years ago. She talks about why it's hard to talk about these things all these years later. This is the first episode in a 3-part mini-series where we will be discussing Quincee's marriage and what she learned in the aftermath. If you've struggled in painful relationships or humiliating divorces, then you've found your people here with us.

episode no. 004 // a mini series: erin's story // the aftermath according to erin
We dove head first into Erin's story of trauma in the previous episode and she had a really normal, although uncomfortable, reaction after we stopped recording. We sat down to discuss her reaction after sharing her experiences in an abusive marriage and how narratives of shame sometimes keep us from telling our whole truth. In this episode, we talk through the body's reaction to trauma, how we can bravely tell our stories, and how to overcome some of the shame we experiences when the truth of our relationships are said out loud. We are talking through ways community and support have been helpful to Erin as she made her way through really painful realizations after her marriage unraveled. We are glad you are here. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, because this is a raw revelation of overcoming trauma. We are so glad you are here.
