A Journey of Grief with Julie Thomason

Season 9, Ep. 54

Life has been life'ing a little over here so we are throwing it back with a repeat episode of one of your favourites. We met with the incredibly inspiring Julie of @spilledmilkmamma who has unwillingly been on a journey of grief this past year. Just four weeks after giving birth to her second child, Julie's husband Charles went on a business trip and never returned. He was killed in a car accident. Julie shares the raw and honest reality of what grief looks like while having to show up for a toddler and newborn. We were excited to go down Julie's IG rabbit hold to discover she has find love again. Wife to Shawn and widow to Charles. To learn more about Julie's story check out @spilledmilkmamma.

    Nat doesn't shock Cat very often, but she left us with a real zinger last week! In part two this week, we are talking about having someone in your life who isn't bringing you joy and how releasing them can be really hard.

  • 72. A Nooner

    30:20
    When your kids get older and they are out of the house, and now there is all of this free time, does that mean you have to have day sex? We are so used to finite times for sex. Someone may come home, wake up, or walk in. But what happens when they are out of the house? Is daytime sex more of an expectation or a norm? Do we need to start a hobby? That keeps us out of the house??!Want our podcasts sent straight to your phone?

  • 71. Come As You Are with Emily Nagoski

    38:32
    We've had a lot of conversations about sex but in this repeat episode we've never really talked about it from the perspective of a woman, often it's from that of the man. And that sex is something we "have to do" vs. "want to do". Emily Nagoski joined us to talk about the barriers that prevent people from living with confidence and joy in their bodies. Emily is the award-winning author of the New York Times bestselling Come As You Are and The Come As You Are Workbook, and coauthor, with her sister Amelia, of the NYT bestseller Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle. She earned her M.S. in counselling and a Ph.D. in health behaviour, both from Indiana University, with clinical and research training at the Kinsey Institute. Now she combines sex education and stress education to teach women to live with confidence and joy inside their bodies. Follow Emily @enagoski.Want our podcasts sent straight to your phone?
