    #158: LAID: Claiming Your Sexual Self - Stephanie Dominy

    #158: LAID: Claiming Your Sexual Self - Stephanie Dominy

    It’s safe to say this is a NSFW podcast! Grab a set of headphones and buckle up. This week I’m joined by Stephanie Dominy, a commercial lawyer and titillating blogger known as The Wicked Jade.  Stephanie blogs about sex, lingerie and kink; and how she gets her lady-boner on.
    During the episode we cover how mothers are sexual beings (duh), ‘volume’ dating after 22 years of marriage, the under-representation of asian women in the body & sex positivity movement and SO much more.  It’s an episode filled with awesome self-acceptance, love and hot tips.

    HEART: On Sharing Home Chores (Fairly) - Joy Foster, Rebekah Bostan and Evelini Quarrell - SUNDAY SUPPLEMENT

    HEART: On Sharing Home Chores (Fairly) - Joy Foster, Rebekah Bostan and Evelini Quarrell - SUNDAY SUPPLEMENT

    Sick and tired of being the one to think about *E - V - E - R - Y - T - H - I - N - G* at home - from birthday gifts, cleaning {or organising the cleaner}, planning life, + remembering to put the bins out—basically the whole shebang?
    You’re not alone. Lockdown’s been a magnifying glass on all those niggling chores that nobody else picks up. If you could, would you renegotiate sharing these domestics and who thinks about them? The mundane repetitive stuff that has to be done by someone. But does it need to be you? Course not.
    Join my guests and I, as we explore exactly how to divvy up the domestics fairly.
    I’m joined by guests:
    Joy Foster - Founder of Tech Pixies Rebekah Bostan - Corporate Professional and Diversity Advocate Evelini Quarrell - Podcast Host This episode is the audio of a LIVE roundtable I filmed with my guest over in the School for Mothers Group - come join us here

    #156: GOD: When Faith + Business Work Together - Joy Foster

    #156: GOD: When Faith + Business Work Together - Joy Foster

    What keeps us going through dark times? I'm joined by Joy Foster to discuss her relationship with faith and GOD.  We all have faith, whether that’s in GOD, people, ourselves, or something completely different. We explore where this faith comes from and how it can guide us when everything seems hopeless. This is a topic which is surprisingly close to home for me as I had a deeply religious upbringing (and yes I was educated at a convent with nuns in wimples!).
    Our conversation heads to some dark places as we discuss Joy’s father’s suicide and history of mental health issues in her family. Joy provides invaluable insight into how to get through profound personal tragedy. Unsurprisingly, this is a highly emotional conversation, so you might want to have tissues close at hand.
