Everything has a dark side.
Live from New York! Brooke and Jill podcast together for the first time! Never shying away from the truth (and a little bit obscure), we talk more about the privilege of being white ladies telling others to just try harder as life advice (i.e. not good). We then veer into damned if you do or don’t territory by discussing the fact that women can never be fully messy humans but must be curated imperfect good girls or damaged women, who exploit their pain for gain. Jill coins the term “branded vulnerability” and we end on an up note with telling tales of our week together and Brooke’s Willy Wonka-esque bed.

Don't wash your face
Since self-care is so cool (and profitable), Brooke and Jill pick up the conversation about ways empowerment and mental wellness are marketed (especially to women). A little late to the game, we look at Rachel Hollis’s message that we just need to wash our faces and embrace that we are made for more, in order to realize our potential and dreams. But, life is usually much messier and more complicated and simple solutions aren’t one size fits all.

Not madness but illness
Episode 3: “Not madness but illness” We’re back! In this episode, we move onto a major cause (for us) of our addiction and self-medicating. Brooke and Jill share their struggles with mental health (anxiety, OCD, depression) and how these experiences started when they were young, the fear of experiencing acute episodes, dealing daily with anxiety, obsessions, and compulsions (too much Googling), and how these illnesses have affected them, the choices, they’ve made, and their relationships. We then move onto discussing the need for connection, better mental health treatment for all, and how the illness isn’t a problem to fix but offering those suffering support and acceptance.
