    Psychedelics: Are We Missing Something Huge?

    On today's episode the Bitches bring on probably one of the coolest guest couples ever, Kole and Tah. They talk about how everything we do is led by either desperation or inspiration. Tah is the "Done Dude" (a nurse with nearly 25 years of experience), and Kole (former substance abuse educator turned psychedelic advocate) founded The Condor Approach to provide a psychedelic-informed coaching certification for therapists, life coaches, psychedelic enthusiasts who know. Integration. Is. Not.Optional.
    They talk about flocking to the healing possibilities of power plants, fungi, and spiritual medicine, in finding safe spaces and integrating their experiences beyond the ceremony or journey. We may have solved the cause of Casey’s trauma in this episode so tune in or miss the F out!

    Acceptance & Commitment Therapy with the Man, the Myth, the Legend: Dr. Thomas Szabo

    On today's episode, the Bitches bring on one of the greatest in the field of behavior analysis, specifically when it comes to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

He breaks down ACT and Relational Frame theory so that anyone listening can understand and even talks about some ways to practice psychological flexibility in your own lives. If you know Casey, you know this is her dream guest and if you know Liat you know she keeps it real AF that she knows nothing about AC, but by the end of the episode even she had lightbulb moments. This episode is one you do not want to miss whether you are studying for your board exam, currently practicing in the field, or just interested in this badass therapy. Tune in or miss the F out! Love you. Mean it!

Making driving more tolerable

I have been getting so bored of all the driving that I have to do with doing in home sessions. I was listening to the same songs over and over and can only listen to Justin Bieber so many times. I’m in my second semester of my graduate degree and this podcast has made my drives to client’s homes much more tolerable while also learning and getting a good laugh. Grad school can seem like learning a foreign language and your podcast helps me apply these concepts to real life. So thank you thank you!

RBT to be

Casey & Liat—

Thank you thank you for this podcast. I wandered into ABA after 7 years of not doing anything with my psychology degree. I knew I needed a fun and easy way to get familiar with the “jargon”…via instagram I stumbled upon you. Thank you both so much for being so real, choosing the best guests, and providing a place to showcase all the variations of ABA. Testing for my RBT in February!
