On this episode, we all talk about how we are all coping with the stress of COVID-19 and being under quarantine. Danie and Nicole talk through how they are processing some tough news they received from work, Carrie talks about how she’s handling working from home and trying to homeschool, and we all use this episode as a mini-therapy session to talk about ideas on how to manage the changes and the new normal we are all dealing with.
Our first self-quarantined podcast! (And honestly, we’re pretty proud of how well we did.) We each get comfy in our own homes (extra comfy in a closet for Nicole) to dig into the oddly timely topic of invisible illnesses, how prevalent they actually are and how hard they can be for others to understand.
This week we are talking about disciplining our kids. Nicole shares some current parenting struggles she is dealing with and we all commiserate together. If parenting advice is what you’re looking for - you aren’t going to get it here. We do share some ideas, but mostly, we are all a mess and just trying to figure it out together.
We didn’t say all we needed to last week, so this week’s episode we just keep going on the topic of #metoo. We talk about how our justice system’s treatment of victims, weird expectations of women’s “modesty,” and how we can talk to our kids about consent and bodily autonomy. And again, personal stories are told. Listen in, and if you find that you have something to add to the conversation, we’d love to hear from you.

The tone of this week’s episode is a bit more serious than our typical topics. Nicole, Carrie, and Danie talk about #MeToo and how the media handled some high profile cases like the Cosby Case, Weinstein Case, and Amy Fisher (which Danie and Nicole were too young to pay attention to when the “Long Island Lolita” first hit the media.) This episode comes with a content warning, if sexual assault is a trigger for you - maybe skip this one and replay one of our older episodes.
