In this edition of the podcast we thoroughly unpacked the recent TV show Normal People.
This time on the podcast we talked about anger. How can we be with anger and use it to help us to hold our boundaries and mobilize us towards justice? And how can we avoid reacting out of it in ways that manifest as aggression, violence, or hatred (whether turned inwards towards ourselves or outwards towards other people)?
This time on the podcast we answered a listener’s question: What is this neoliberalism (that we often mention) and how does it relate to sex and relationships.
(Note, we haven’t read Love in the Time of Cholera, but it is really good apparently).
Earlier this week we did an episode about sickness and consent. Today on the podcast we talked about how to deal with the stress and coronavirus. Below are the main tips and resources we mentioned…
This episode of the podcast was a Coronavirus special where we reflected on the issues that the virus raises for consent, from the micro level of self-consent to the macro level of wider culture and societal systems and structures, and everything in between.
A while back a listener asked us to do a podcast to help people who were worrying that they might be a sex addict. MJ decided to do an interview with their friend Dominic Davies – the head of Pink Therapy – who has a critical perspective, and lots of expertise, about sex addiction.
In this episode we chatted about disagreeing with people. Firstly we talked about the differences between disagreements and challenging prejudice. Then we chatted about how to disagree with people, why disagree, when to disagree, and when it’s okay to not argue with someone.
This week on the podcast we spoke about our feelings after the recent UK election, and about how people might cope in the aftermath of cultural events like this which can leave us feeling very precarious indeed.
In this show we talked about how you can be accountable when a friend or other person in your life comes to you to say that they’ve been hurt in some way by your behaviour or choices.
