Welcome to self care-ish. A podcast about divorce, dating, the decision to not-date, and just doing-you.

The goal for this series is to defy some of the social stigmas and hurdles people face when they make bold decisions that say ‘ok, I deserve this’.

Whether it is to leave a relationship, quit a job, take a leap of faith and move overseas, or even being brave enough to tell friends and family ‘no’ when you’re at capacity and need time for you.

And being totally okay with that.

    'You're Not Crazy, You're Coping' With Psychotherapist Zena Chahine

    'You're Not Crazy, You're Coping' With Psychotherapist Zena Chahine

    If you’ve looked around at the world, or your life, especially during times when things aren’t, let’s say, going tickety-fricken boo and thought—well f*ck, how do I fix this.

    This episode is for you.

    But not because it’s a silver bullet for your life’s trials and tribulations. Trust me if I could do that for you, I would.

    But what you WILL get out of this episode is a way to reframe those pesky shitty things that happen so you don’t feel so overwhelmed.

    WHAT IS SELF care-ISH ALL ABOUT?
    It's okay to take care of yourself. And it's definitely okay to seek help when you need it. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty or selfish for wanting to be happy. You deserve it—friend I haven't met yet.

    'Where Have All The Divorce Ranches Gone?' With Creator Mel 'That Weird Girl' Zee

    'Where Have All The Divorce Ranches Gone?' With Creator Mel 'That Weird Girl' Zee

    Damn this episode is all over the shop mostly because it’s an interview with a creator I’ve been following for a long time.
    Her name’s ⁠Mel Zee⁠, she’s also known as Sorry I Brought It Up on TikTok. 

    Which seems to be where you find a lot of the most talented humans these days. 

    Mel’s talent? Staring down the barrel of her camera lens and just dropping megawatt truth and weird pop culture bombs into your algorithm. 
    Whether she’s talking about dealing with anger (that we need to normalise being angry, especially as women), or dating faux woke guys, or pondering the nuances of the OJ Simpson trial. 

    And it is a fucking talent. And she’s blowing up because of it.

    But I invited her on this season to speak about one topic in particular: divorce ranches.

    How To Rediscover YOU: Reclaiming Your Identity

    How To Rediscover YOU: Reclaiming Your Identity

    It's the rebuilding your life post-breakup/breakdown thats interesting to me. And I didn’t have an interview lined up for you this week but honestly, when I’m listening to podcasts, I LOVE the solo one and one episodes.

    There’s no muss, no fuss, just someone I like telling me things I am interested in learning about.
    And that’s what I’m hoping to do for you today on this short solo ep.

    Because today we’re talking about Reclaiming your identity back. The why you should revel in the process and how to do it.

    Unpacking Your 'Stuff' With Author Jonathan Seidler

    Unpacking Your 'Stuff' With Author Jonathan Seidler

    Writer Jonathan Seidler absolutely believes there’s beauty in your most heart wrenching breakups and he’s written a novel to prove it.

    If you read Esquire or The Guardian, if you’re into music, if you came up in the era of Vice magazine, or if you’ve kept half an eye on the Australian literary scene then the name Jonathan Seidler will resonate with you pretty strongly.

    His first novel, ‘It’s A Shame About Ray’, became a phenomenon for its honest, funny, and heartbreaking portrayal of men, memory, family, love, death.

    And he always does it with a sly dose of humour. Because isn’t that the best way to travel through life?

    In this chat we cover a lot of ground. Divorce, dating apps, foxes having sex.

    A chat with Jonno is never just a quick chat. You can’t help but go deep on things. It’s the writer way!

    Enjoy! x

    'You Need To Accept, Not Forgive': Jamie Gonzalez On Knowing When You're Healed

    'You Need To Accept, Not Forgive': Jamie Gonzalez On Knowing When You're Healed

    This season is all about healing and Jamie Gonzalez has an interesting take on feeling at peace—and it’s not nothing to do with forgiveness.

    Controversial? Maybe. I had to find out more.

    And if you’re uninitiated with Jamie’s work, you’re going to love him. He’s a mentor, public speaker, and all-round peaceful presence. He’s the kind of guy you want in your corner when all the world feels chaotic.

    So of course he makes perfect sense to kick off this season.

    Enjoy xox

    'Always Take Rejection Over Regret' With Dating Coach Eli Vazquez

    'Always Take Rejection Over Regret' With Dating Coach Eli Vazquez

    Finishing the season on a SUPER HIGH NOTE with this interview with the one and only Eli Vazquez. Producer, filmmaker, and one of TikTok’s most beloved dating coaches. 


    I’ve been a loyal Vazquezian since he first started dropping his romantic truth bombs on the app but he’s also the host of the Self Hype podcast (which recently ranked alongside this very podcast on the Australian podcast charts). So we became friends and that’s how I ended up chatting to Eli on my coach at 1am last week.
