Oh, hi there. Welcome to Teach Me Tiger, a semi-educational chatcast that's gritty, honest, irreverent and generally a little silly.
Meet Melody and some of her closest friends (and rotating cohosts Liz, Sarah, Chris and Nikki.) Teach Me Tiger explores new topics in conversation with these old pals and their smartest, most experty and/or enthusiastic buds. Airs every third Thursday.
69 – I WANT A D*CK (Oral Sex w/ Casey Easton)
If you didn't consider the title of this episode disclaimer enough, consider yourself DISCLAIMED: this episode is about SEX and we kindly ask that children, prudes, exes and immediate family members steer clear of this one. Now, for the rest of you perverts, are you ever in for a treat! Melody and best bud/former cohost, Sarah Wright, are sitting down with Casey Easton of Erotic Embodiment for the Teach Me Tiger season finale to talk all things ORAL SEX and more! We cover cunnilingus and b******s, obvi...but also, we get balls-deep in deep throating, gag-prevention, communication for lubrication, 69ing, dating as a confident grown-ass woman, how to relax and enjoy oral, consent...and then! A real live dick shows up to the party and gives us the penile perspective. What a sexy show, what a hot finale!
68 – So Why Do I Feel Like A Psychopath? (Attachment Theory w/ Viara Mileva)
Viara Mileva, PhD is back, with our good buddy Liz Cooper, to unpack childhood attachment styles, and pontificate on how they affect us and our interpersonal relationships as adults. Viara is wearing her former academic hat (she works now as a photographer,) as she spent years in the lab studying how primary caregivers and small children interacted and bonded (or in some cases, how they didn't do those things.) We break down the different attachment styles, how they're formed, and what they mean. We discuss whether one can work around these labels, or even overcome them. We also get into the importance of taking these labels with a grain of salt, and recognizing the complex series of factors that go into any and all of our behaviours. Attachment styles are but a piece of the puzzle, but they're an important piece and we've all got them. Let's get vulnerable, baby!
We do mention several books on the subject. If you'd like to delve deeper, we recommend these: Attached by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller, The Jealousy Cure by Robert Leahy and Paul Gilbert, and Wired For Dating by Stan Tatkin.
67 – Stories With My Pa (w/ Justin Starkweather)
Back by popular demand, it's Melody's father Justin - and just in time for Father's Day. He's been working on a list of tales yet untold, and he's here to share them with us all (ever lucky!) Justin has been interviewed in several previous episodes of Teach Me Tiger - Episode 44, My Daddy Is A Ballerina, Episode 55, Trying Different Things, and Episode 58, The Hippie Years - telling stories from his wildly eventful and interesting life. Justin felt he'd left some good ones out, so here we are! Let's all hope he remembers more tales that he must recant in another future episode. In this episode, we hear a bit about Justin's own father, debacles onstage, his libidinous pursuits, and more. He's charming as ever. Enjoy and Happy Fathers Day!
Vintage Classic – 26 – Millennialitis (Self-Care w/ Kim Murphy)
Originally aired February 28, 2019.
Hustle, hustle, hustle, baby! Kim Murphy, the ultimate healing hustler, is here to help us simplify our highly saturated lives. How do we tune in, instead of tuning out? What do we really want? Where in our lives are we leaking energy? WHO ARE WE?? AND WHERE THE HELL AM I??? After a real fun game of Icebreakers, we dive deep into the Millennial-and perhaps Xennial-condition that we’ve dubbed Millennialitis. We talk about detecting, avoiding and dealing with BURNOUT. And Kim gives us some great advice on how to romance ourselves to up-level our energy, restore vitality and improve our overall mental health.
You can find Sarah at instagram.com/justthetiphandpoketattoos and Melody at melodystarkweather.ca. To support the show, go to patreon.com/teachmetigerpodcast. And of course, it always helps us if you rate and review us and, BEST OF ALL, TELL YOUR FRIENDS! Thank you so much.
66 – Quarantine Ketchup (Pandemmie Check-In w/ Liz Cooper)
Best friends make the best fun, and we've all missed the BEST FUN with former co-host of the show and Melody's longtime good buddy, ELIZABETH COOPER! (Insert airhorns here.) This episode is a bit of a departure, in that it's not educational in the slightest, but you know what?! It's a global pandemic, the world's on fire, and we're going rogue! In today's epi, we are reflecting on the last 13 months of pandemmie life - unexpected perks, phone addiction, pandemic-tainment, a mental health corner, personal growth, excessive alone time, and wild new hobbies. We also go through a few of Arthur Aron's '36 Questions To Fall In Love' and not only do we fall deeper in love, but we get real vulnerable and intimate. Oh, and funny! We get funny, too.
Vintage Classic – 10 – The Dadisode (Fatherhood w/ Brent Maguire, Kaajuk Kablalik, Gregory Aarons & Chris Chambers)
Originally aired July 12, 2018.
Holy Moly, it’s the Fab Four (Feminist Fathers.) Episode 10 boasts the hunkiest Dad panel in all the land: Greg Aarons, Chris Chambers, Kaajuk Kablalik and Brent Maguire. Ever lucky! These progressive pappies sit with us to talk about impending fatherhood, filthy earholes, invisible housewives, coffee romance and BBQ bromance. Swooooon!!!
