Everything Is Still Terrible (there's a pandemic on you know)
This time on the podcast we attempted to normalise the tough feelings that most of us are having at this phase of the Covid-19 pandemic (going into Autumn/Fall 2020). Using the ‘Phases of Disaster’ model we framed our current moment as the long ‘disillusionment’ phase which may last months or even longer. We talked about why it’s really okay to not feel okay right now, and what we might do with our feelings of not-okayness.

Kindness Part One
This time on the podcast we discussed kindness. Here on our free feed you can listen to our overview of what kindness is and why it’s so important. Then please check out our Patreon to listen to part two of this conversation where we chatted more about how to be kind.
[Sorry the sound isn't as great as usual]
This time on the podcast we answered four listener questions. Here’s a few notes on the questions and our answers. They relate to (1) changing support dynamics in friendship, (2) navigating a reconnecting relationship with an ex, (3) dealing with intrusive thoughts, (4) unhelpful friend’s responses to a shift in gender of partner.
Bonus episode mid-week episode where we talked about our awesome new bingo card, put together by the fabulous Katie Green. Katie is a wonderful illustrator, and podcaster and zine-maker, who touches on similar themes to us at times, but also writes about knitting and sewing. You might enjoy her most recent comic about ace joy and relationship hierarchies.
Feel free to play bingo along with our episodes sometime and tag us on #mjandjbingo with the results. Head over to the website to download it. https://megjohnandjustin.com/uncategorised/bingo/
Desert Island Discs
Sociological review playlist: The Meg-John and Justin desert island discs
This time on the podcast we talked about our desert island discs - the songs that we most relate to our Meg-John and Justin project. The prompt for this was that the online journal The Sociological Review asked us to be part of their ‘Music and Sound’ themed month (July 2020) where twelve sociologists provide them with a 'sociological' playlist.

It’s simply brilliant.
Best educational podcast!
This is best podcast I have ever came across. Provides in once amazing nonjudgemental, unobtrusive Information compiled with great sense of humour and great entertaining.
It doesn’t tell what to do but is presents all the options for everybody that are equally valid.
I am a big fan of Meg-John and Justin work. Their contribution to education is invaluable.
Long term subscriber and fan of the podcast, bishuk.com and Meg-John's books. All have helped transform the way I view relationships, gender and sexuality in my own life and also been extremely helpful in my work as an LGBTQ counsellor. Thank you, and keep on sharing!
