The Friend You Need Podcast: Episode 31: UK True Crime Podcast Interview

Don't miss this one guys! Our new friend Adam, who hosts (and researches and is the one man dynamo behind) the UK True Crime Weekly Podcast is our guest. He even said, if one of us gets murdered, he'll interview the other on his show! Our big break :)

Seriously, though, we had a great time talking to him all the way across the pond and hearing his tips of on how not to get murdered (stay single) and what drew him to the genre in the first place. 

Angela is a huge True Crime fan and specifically was a huge fan of Adam's show, so this was the highlight of our week for sure. Hope you listen in and enjoy it. Check out his facebook page too and make sure to tell us about your favorite true crime books and podcasts.

We didn't say Penis or Vagina enough the first time (and OK, we know the actual thing you see is called the Vulva) so we're bringing this gem back. 

The Friend You Need, Episode 20: Penis and Vagina

Penis penis penis. Vagina vagina vagina. Just say it! This week we talk about the controversial (or obvious, in our case) issue of naming baby's private parts. The Atlantic published this article about what we call our body parts and at the same time, Ali's crazy mom facebook group tackled a situation where certain members didn't think you should use grown up terms. Uh, no. Lets call an elbow an elbow please and do NOT call it a cookie.

We also talk about staying at home with toddlers (omg, I'm tired), women in the workplace, and our favorite summer things!

Episode 29: Aging and Birthdays

Angela will only be in her 30s for ONE MORE year! How can Ali have a friend this old? We had a lot of fun with this one talking about being in our 20s and how we've felt growing older this past decade. We look foward at getting even older, botox and growing kids. A couple of fun articles were sourced which we'll post on Facebook. Notably, a group of women in their 70s comment on aging and we love some of their tips. 

Happy Birthday Angela!

Episode 26: Hierarchy of What to Care About
The Friend You Need Podcast

To anyone paying attention to the world around them, it seems there are SO MANY things to care about...that are asking for donations, volunteer time or that just need your input to fix. But, I'm going to guess you're tired and busy and on something of a budget - pulled in 20 directions. How do you decide what's most important? How do you decide to work with a certain cause over another? Or, do you just do nothing because of decision paralysis?

This has been weighing on Ali's mind as she participates in a business start up class and is working to a launch a socially conscious business in the next few weeks. Turning to Ang for a meaningful conversation about what matters and how we decide these things helps find clarity.

We'd LOVE to hear what you think.

The Friend You Need: Self Care

They say the milenials are more in tune with taking care of themselves mentally, spiritually, and physically than any generation before them. Are you one? Do you agree? 
We talk about our favorite ways to recharge the batteries on vacation and off vacation, long term and short term. Also, that parents need to put on their own oxygen mask before helping others. If you don't have time to care for yourself, how can you possibly be your best for others?

So, listen up! Share with a friend and book a mani/pedi this week!

The Friend You Need Podcast, Episode 24: Body Image...From the Archives

Angela has taken off on vacation and so we've decided to release an older episode this week. One of our favorites and a topic that can't possible get enough attention. Body Image. Specifically, how do we talk to each other, ourselves and our young daughters. 

Enjoy! And we'll see you next week with a true vacation episode, recorded from Nantucket!

The Friend You Need, Episode 23: Mom Shaming

 
This series of articles came to our attention and we wanted to weigh in. We follow some of these "slummy mummies" in question and think they're rather refreshing. So the critic's takedown of their "real life" depiction of motherhood and all of its ups and downs was a surprise. However, her Britishness comes through in the best way and Ali's obesessed with her writing...despite her ideas.
 
Mom shaming is real and it sucks in all of its forms. Most parents, especially moms, have witnessed this at one point or another. We're not interested in it but it does make for a great conversation. Tell us what you think! Or tell us your best (aka worst) experience with mom shaming!
