    Exactly. LIVE with Munroe Bergdorf

    Exactly. LIVE with Munroe Bergdorf

    Floss is LIVE! Happy Monday Floss fans! If you’re UK based we hope you had a lush long weekend. If you’re not, don’t worry, we have a treat for you that will make Monday feel like saturday. Model, activist, and now author, Munroe Bergdorf, joined Floss live at the podcast show for a Floss’ Five followed by a scintillating exploration of life, love and their illustrious careers. Munroe is a cornerstone of the UK queer community, is a wildly successful model and is a trailblazing voice for social justice, defending the rights of people of colour and marginalised genders.



    Munroe exemplifies abundance and tells Floss about why she extends the ladder behind her, as well as delivering some wise words on creating space, falling in love, personal growth journeys and maintaining both authenticity and boundaries with the public. Munroe has an incredible podcast called “ The Way We Are” and is one of the most visible transgender people in the UK. As a queer, black, trans woman she stands herself at the intersection of many multiple identities and uses her platform to advocate for other marginalized people. She is a patron of the charity Mermaids, an advocate for UN Women UK, and last year, she was added to L’Oréal’s Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board; mending her relationship with the cosmetics giant after they controversially dropped her from a campaign in 2017 for calling out white privilege and racism. Her achievements and accolades are really quite mind boggling.



    Expect the lively, empowering and curious conversations that Floss brings to every episode but with that zingy electricity that only an IRL audience can give. Well an IRL audience and an amazing guest like…Munroe Bergdorf! So if you missed it in person, don’t worry- turn up the volume, dress up for yourself and you’ll feel like you were there!

    RELATIONSHIPS: Emotional availability, Attachment and Authenticity with Todd Baratz

    RELATIONSHIPS: Emotional availability, Attachment and Authenticity with Todd Baratz

    The time has come! It’s our final episode of Season1! But fear not Floss fans, we’ll back with Season 2 really soon. To help you work through your anxious attachment to this podcast, we’ve got the amazing Todd Baratz on the show this week. He and Floss will be answering your questions, listening to your voice notes and taking calls from a couple of you!



    Our relationships , friendships, romantic partnerships, family relationships are what fill our lives with meaning and teach us the most about ourselves. It’s a cliche but it really does all come down to relationships.  We live in a time when on the one hand we have access to so much helpful  information, online, through podcasts and books,  and exposure to concepts and ideas about relationships, that we have the potential to really grow in emotional literacy and maturity. But on the other hand this can mean that big complex subjects are reduced to memes, infographics and 140 characters - things like “ emotional availability, attachment styles, red flags” can all be used to label and even condemn what is often, normal, fluctuating human behaviour.



    This is exactly why we thought Todd Baratz would be the perfect expert to round off the season. He doesn’t subscribe to labels and actively debunks a lot of the common misconceptions that get shared, often out of context. Todd is a certified sex therapist, licensed individual and couples psychotherapist, and writer who specializes in relationships and sex. Online his account @yourdiagnonsense is shaking up the world of therapy one brutally honest post at a time. He is a proud queer man and he communicates in a way which makes it okay to feel the many different things we all go through- we all contain multitudes!



    Here are a few of our favourite attention-grabbing home truth headlines posted by Baratz:
