    In Common

    In Common

    Jen wonders whether having everything in common is a good thing in relationships or whether it is more important to be at a similar point in life's journey. Kirstie appreciates goals, values and kindness in friends, Jen likes those who question and are proactive in creating change,  even befriending such people on social media. Same, different or similar path - what do you look for?

    20/40 is a podcast celebrating conversations and friendship across generations. Your podcast hosts are Kirstie Fitzpatrick (the 20 something) and Jen Seyderhelm (the 40 something). Kirstie and Jen met while working in the media. Initially their catch ups were defined by work roles which required sharing current affairs and news with each other. It didn't take long before they found they were seeking each other out on personal matters - relationships, family, social life, health, work and more. They discovered an abundance in common and the twenty year age gap a bonus rather than hindrance.

    Expectations

    We all go into interactions with others with our own expectations about how they'll play out but sometimes people don't live up to ours or we don't meet theirs.

    Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle

    Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle

    Jen had just interview Dr Liz Allen who had found the Manolo Blahnik shoes, worn by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City when she married Mr Big, in a local Vinnies for $35! Jen loves op shopping, bus hasn't always felt able to say that proudly.

    One of Kirstie's 2021 resolutions is to recycle more and better. She talks about repurposing gifts and when she'll buy second hand or reuse.

    At the end of the episode, Jen repurposes a gift to Kirstie.

    Ask Us Anything!

    Ask Us Anything!

    In this episode Kirstie and Jen answer questions you have put to us - are some bridges best burnt, how to recognise toxic traits in others (and ourselves), body love, are we the protagonists of our own life and how many sugar daddies we deserve to look after us. That last response came out of a question around if social media creates new opportunities. Jen has had some interesting opportunities offered to her!

    Angry

    Angry

    Jen has been feeling internal anger, but as someone who dislikes conflict, she wonders if her repression is a bad thing and, over a long period of time, can affect her relationships. Kirstie has gotten better at speaking up when a matter isn't right, but prefers to phrase her emotions as "getting upset", as she's dealt with violent anger in the past. Both apologise too much and prefer to keep the peace.

    How do you see your own periods of feeling upset or angry?
