What a treat! In today’s episode, Karen & Katie welcome the amazing Rachel Kramer Bussel, a wildly creative and kind person who is also the editor of the long-running Best Women’s Erotica Of The Year anthologies. The trio cover a TON of topics, including erotica, if Rachel ever gets sick of writing/editing sex topics(!!), talking dogs, jigsaw puzzles, mental health, YouTube stars, and upcoming books we don’t want to miss.
This week’s episode is a MUST LISTEN. One of Karen & Katie’s favorite guests, Dr. Tania Israel, returns to talk about unity. The discussion covers everything from how to talk with people across the aisle to how many of us could benefit from rethinking our news consumption to real talk about anger around politics.
Anyone feeling some sort of way about their bodies these days (or every day)??? If so, this episode is for you. Today, Karen & Katie chat with the incredible Dr. Renee Englen, Northwestern psychology professor & leading body acceptance researcher about ALL things related to body image.
Has anyone else been feeling a bit low lately? If so, the reason may surprise you. According to writer and grief expert Hope Edelman, many people experience a “dip in functioning” around the one-year anniversary of a trauma or loss. This week marks one year since COVID descended on the U.S., and in today’s episode, Karen & Katie chat with Hope about the concept of Pandemic Grief.
Get ready for an epic episode! This week, Karen and Katie welcome Saya (pronounced Sigh-A) Hillman, a.k.a. ‘The Accessible Oprah,’ for a far-reaching and very real conversation about living what Saya calls ‘A Life Of Yes.’ As founder and CEO of Mac & Cheese Productions, a Chicago-based lifestyle business that creates events (and many other things) for its clients, Saya explains how getting fired in 2004 was one of the best things that could have happened to her.
