‘Bonus Points If You Go To Therapy’ | Fantasy and Reality with Anti-Shamer, REED AMBER The Invisible Cabaret Podcast: Mental Health & The Arts

    • Performing Arts

Years of crushing finally pay off - our favourite mental health and sex-positivity icon, Reed Amber, joins us on the podcast! You may know Reed best from her work with Florence and the gang over at Come Curious, or from their podcast, F*cks Given. In this episode, we talk to Reed about her journey from hating to advocating: her body, therapy, social media, the works. From CBT to OF to IBS, we're DTF with Reed FTW. 

Plenty of 'adult' language in this one, you have been warned!
