    Eps. #016: The System w/attorney Reyna Lubin

    Eps. #016: The System w/attorney Reyna Lubin

    The ladies welcome the wonderful, diligent and insanely committed Reyna Lubin (@reynalubin). Reyna is a former Assistant District Attorney for the domestic violence bureau of the King's County District Attorney's Office in Brooklyn, NY. It was here that she first connected with Brittany and the two have stayed in touch since working together in 2017. Reyna was assigned to Britt's case and went above and beyond to guide her through a tricky judicial system and get her the protection she needed. At the D.A.'s office, Reyna handled more than 2,000 cases of crimes involving intimate partner violence, and she provides listeners with an inside look at legal classifications of domestic violence, the process of pursuing your justice and advice on what to do during every step of an abusive situation. 

    Reyna now works as a private civil rights attorney where she handles discrimination cases on the basis of race, sex and disability. She also produces her own podcast, The Link Up (@the.link.up) which covers women's issues in and out of the workplace.

    Eps. #015: The SAD, BAD (but HILARIOUS) History of DV w/Nevertheless She Existed

    Eps. #015: The SAD, BAD (but HILARIOUS) History of DV w/Nevertheless She Existed

    Onika and Britt had a big, on-air fight. Can you feel it? Just last week they were agreeing to a domestic partnership and now the honeymoon phase is dead and gone. We'll spare you the details and skip ahead to the make-up sex (the actual episode and another giveaway of @_myplusone goodies), but damn, relationships are hard! 

    Thankfully, they make up just in time to welcome the fabulous Kylie Holloway and Molly Gaebe, hosts of Caveat's femme-fueled podcast, Nevertheless She Existed. Get ready to be straight-up SCHOOLED on the "SAD and BAD" history of domestic violence reparations in the U.S. and beyond. We go way back, too, starting with Adam and Eve, Queen Elizabeth and the horrific origin story of the phrase "Rule of Thumb." We circle back to 2020 and the now-"unconstitutional" Violence Against Women Act and share some honest stories in the process.

    See how much history has evolved, or lack thereof, in one of our FUNNIEST and SMARTEST episodes to date. Make a drinking game out of it! Take a shot every time women take one step forward. Take two every time they take 14 steps back.

    Plus, Brittany's new side hustle, Onika's bribe and a little tea.

    Eps. #014: The One Where Everyone Cries w/Hope Alcocer

    Eps. #014: The One Where Everyone Cries w/Hope Alcocer

    Warning: This episode of Violently Funny contains graphic descriptions of domestic violence and physical abuse, as well as strong language. Listener discretion is advised. 

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Welp, it finally happened: Onika and Britt cried.  In their most vulnerable and candid episode yet, the ladies welcome one of Brittany's best friends, Hope Alcocer (@hopealcocer.) Hope is an author, entrepreneur and motivational speaker, and recently had an early battle with domestic violence resurface. In every way she communicates and lives, Hope carries an unmatched conviction and level of eloquence and has done the tough work to fully understand and process her experiences with DV. It shows in her commentary on trauma-bonding, self-love and recovery. Don't worry! The taping was a full-on GIRLS NIGHT so the episode is still very funny and equipped with plenty of the usual loud ridiculousness Violently Funny delivers.  But the girls get into it, and if you're comfortable listening, it's an example of the growth that comes from facing your s**t head on and making it to the other side.

    Eps. #012: Growing Up with Trauma feat. Katherine Shaw

    Eps. #012: Growing Up with Trauma feat. Katherine Shaw

    Brittany comes down with the plague and the ladies are busy planning for their live show so this week's episode comes a little late. Nonetheless, Onika and Britt hit their 1-year anniversary and reflect on gratitude and their partnership before welcoming their first remote guest, Katherine Shaw from Portland, OR! Katherine is not only a comedy writer for The Syndrome Mag and Weekly Humorist, but studied domestic violence in undergrad and has a master's degree in trauma rehabilitation. As a survivor, Katherine committed herself to understanding DV through academia as a means to help others and understand her own experience. The episode does a deep dive into alcoholism, parenting, manic depressive disorder, universal attachment styles and finding intimacy in the wake of abuse.
