STORY 16: MANIFEST YOUR LIFE, B!
In this story, ClaudBee and Bird are joined by their dear friend Lupe whom they've both known for years now, having worked together as advocates and case managers for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Which is to say, Lupe knows them pretty well and it shows! For the past couple of years Lupe has been on a very intentional path to leading a happier more fulfilled and purposeful life, and that includes things like thinking and living positively, manifesting, and envisioning the life she wants via vision boarding. And she's coming on to teach us a little about each of these things! Basically, we asked her to give us a bit of a crash course on vision boarding for dummies, cuz we B's don't really know much about it. Lupe makes it all really easy to understand and to see that anyone can really implement these types of practices into their lives, you don't have to be any type of expert to do it. We are envisioning a great 2019, join us!

STORY 10: WHY I DIDN'T REPORT
*TRIGGER WARNING* ClaudBee and Bird talk about how the last few weeks have been especially triggering for survivors.

As people who value the power of storytelling and as survivors, these two B's wanted to provide space for other survivors to share their experiences, specifically why they didn't report. Special thank you to the six survivors who so bravely and generously shared their personal stories with us so that we may share with you. Thank you Yvette, Nicole, Mala, Survivor 1, Survivor 2, and Survivor 3. You are so strong. - Claud and Bird *TRIGGER WARNING: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS INFORMATION ABOUT SEXUAL ASSAULT AS WELL AS PERSONAL ACCOUNTS FROM SURVIVORS, WHICH MAY BE TRIGGERING.
