We Just Like to Talk is two friends, Kara and Becky, who will talk about literally anything with one another. From friendship to feminism, from reading and romance to philosophy and pop culture, our topics are varied and our opinions outlandish but it’s never a dull moment when we’re in conversation. We’re not experts, but we hope our audience can find something useful—or at the very least entertaining—from our conversations.
We Can't Make This Up
Makeup. A lot of us wear it! Becky has worn it for years, but with the pandemic upon us, she is wearing it less often. Kara, on the other hand, had almost never worn makeup until last February. Listen to a cis woman and a trans woman discuss their respective personal journeys with makeup.
Note: Kara would like you to know that she has improved significantly at eyeliner since recording this episode.

Keeping It 1000! (Livestream Recording)

Listen to Kara and Becky talk about a variety of subjects, from the origins of this podcast to their neighbours to a Holly Bourne book and more!
Book Club - Part 2! Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski
Kara and Becky continue their discussion of Come As You Are, by Emily Nagoski, which they began in the previous episode. In this episode, we get a little more personal. We discuss what we hope our friends and loved ones will take away from this book if they read it.
Book Club! Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski (Part 1)
Kara gave Becky Come As You Are, by Emily Nagoski, for her birthday. This book is about sex, specifically female sexual response!
