    Standing By vs. Being An Ally

    "Rape is not exclusively the product of a few bent and twisted minds but a result of [cultural] belief systems." 

    In this week’s podcast interview, we discuss the effects of the “rape myth,” the limitations of sexuality and rape-supportive beliefs, the influence of media violence, and the implications of the acceptance of violence against women.⁠ Our guest Neil Malamuth is a professor of social studies and communication at UCLA and interdisciplinary social scientist who studies violence and conflict. ⁠

    Recommendations & Reviews: Boogie Nights

    When I decided to watch Boogie Nights with a few friends, I was expecting a comical satire of the porn industry in the ’80s. I was surprised to find that, instead, it was a less comical yet much more profound cultural statement piece that I had expected.

    Food For Thought: Contradiction vs. Complementation

    Food For Thought: Contradiction vs. Complementation

    Studies of highly creative people and highly successful people, such as the one by the psychologist bestselling author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, have shown that a dynamic set of seemingly opposing characteristics is a very important part of what makes them tick.

    “Contradiction” or perceived cognitive dissonance is hard for our brains to process, so we often categorize the world and people into boxes, think even of our of ourselves as being either at one or the other end or the other of the spectrum for many personality traits. The world isn’t so simple and neither are we. The good news is that our “contradictions” can actually be quite complementary, not only to each other but to our success in life.

    Food For Thought: Curiosity vs. Criticism

    Whether it’s meeting a new person or talking to someone in our family, there is a point at which (even well-intentioned) questions can come across as uninvited criticisms. How do we walk that fine line while trying to learn about someone else or draw it ourselves when someone else has stepped over our own boundaries?

I love it!

This is one of my favorite podcasts!

I feel like it gives me answers to so many questions I’ve had for a while and never dared to ask. Thank you!

I likey

As someone who struggles with vulnerability and non-direct borderline aggressive communication, this podcast has opened my eyes to other sides of the coin. Delivered in an objective way in a sultry voice, the host unjudgingly gives us a world of information on uncomfortable topics that have made me a (debatable) better listener, lover, and learner. I appreciate the wide array of topics and how the information is delivered; while still leaving what we do with it up to us, the listeners.
