A podcast hosted by two 30-something best friends with very different perspectives on what it's like to be in your 30s. We're talking about everything like dating, politics, current events, profession, travel, pop culture and more as it relates to 30-something women.
What Are You Afraid Of?
When you’re younger you think you’re just going to be afraid of the usual–dark, spiders, your parents finding out you got bad grades. As we hit our 30s our fears have more to do with perceived inadequacies–fear of failure, fear of inability to get pregnant–not that a few of the usual spider and dark fears haven’t crept into our 30s as well. Listen to this episode where Latesha and Tiana talk openly about all of our fears, both ridiculous and realistic.
The Evolution of Love
Early in your life up through your 20’s you really think you understand love. You’ll come to realize, though, that as time goes on, you never truly understood deep love until you start to experience more of life. In this episode, Tiana and Latesha talk about how the love you have for your family, friends, and your mate really evolves as you enter your 30s when life really knocks you down to your lowest of lows and lifts you up to your highest of highs.
My Time is Precious
Whether you’re wasting time at a job you hate, in an unhappy relationship, or going to places you don’t want to be, once you hit 30 you realize how truly precious time is. At the age where parents or parents of friends start to pass away, health scares come a dime a dozen, and the next scary mass shooting just flashed up on the TV screen, you start to put into perspective that because time is so limited, you’d be better off spending it doing something that makes you happy with people who make you happy. Join Latesha and Tiana for episode 2 of season 2 of the Let’s Talk 30 podcast where we talk about all the things we used to waste our time on and how we overcame the fear of saying, “No, this is not for me.”
Back For Season 2
We can’t believe it’s already been a full year since we started the Let’s Talk 30 podcast!!! So much happened last season including a wedding, lots of girls trips, some dating, some money advice, a male panel, a lost job, and a lot of advice for the 20-somethings and 30-somethings. This episode welcomes you back and tells you all about what’s coming up in Season 2.
Didn’t See That Coming
Latesha and Tiana are back after a short podcast hiatus to talk about how to deal with the unexpected. Life can throw so many things your way like losing your job, car problems, health issues, and surprise pregnancies that you should prepare as best as you can. Join them for this episode of the podcast where they talk about how they dealt with some of these common surprises that can happen in life, and the best ways to deal with the unexpected.
During this episode we talked about five (5) unexpected situations we’ve experienced, how we dealt with them, and our tips to best navigate these situations. So before you have random car trouble, lose your phone when you’re out and about, accidentally get pregnant, your parents need medical attention, or someone dumps you on vacation, check out our tips on how to survive those instances.
* Car Trouble (As an adult) Latesha’s car went into a pothole while she was in college. Parents drove to UGA to get me a new tire the next morning. Latesha didn’t even know that she had a donut tire in her trunk, or a jack to lift the car. Always have a flashlight and learn to change a tire. Tiana is a magnet for flat tires so she is a prime example of why you need to know how to change a tire, and honestly, how to not run over nails on the road. Tiana has even had a flat tire in her rental that she had because her actual car had a flat tire and needed to be fixed. Gone are the days of asking Mom and Dad to come to help you fix the problem. Also, invest in AAA or a like-service. Tiana’s story is one of the scarier versions of car trouble–when you have no idea what’s wrong with it, but it’s making sad sounds and won’t start. Tiana naturally called her Dad in tears thinking this was the end of her Camry, but it turned out to just be a dead battery. She hadn’t had a new car battery in over 5 years. She suggests you have your car battery tested every couple of years. If your car does stop working for a car battery or a flat tire and you don’t have AAA, your first call should be to your car insurance. Depending on your coverage, roadside assistance is typically included. They also do things like help you if you lock your keys in the car, change your tire, and give your car battery a jump. Latesha personally has Progressive and they’ve helped her 3 times when she’s locked her keys in the trunk…yes, you’ve read that right, she needed help 3 separate times for locking her keys in the trunk! As an important tip, invest in having excellent car insurance. * Not Having Technology When’s the last time you memorized a phone number? If you didn’t have access to navigation on your phone, could you still read a road map or subway map? Knowing how to survive without technology is a good life tip. We rely on our phones to do things like help guide us to where we need to go, contact our closest relatives and friends, call us a ride, and keep us on schedule. But when the battery inevitably dies, your screen cracks to the point of no return, you lose your phone, or (dare I say it) you accidentally leave your phone at home, how the hell do you survive out there? Tiana’s laughter at Latesha’s question about whether or not she can read a map makes it crystal clear that map reading is a lost tool. Tiana also only knows like 4 numbers by heart, and the main person who fixes her car is her Dad and she doesn’t even know his number by heart! She is certainly not alone. Our first tip for a common unexpected problem, like not having access to technology whilst on the go, is to memorize important phone numbers in case of an emergency. You should know your parent’s numbers, your mate’s number, and if you have a separate emergency contact, then memorize that number, too.
A Walk Down Memory Lane
Take a little trip with Tiana and Latesha as they walk down memory lane in this episode of the podcast. Since Latesha is 5 days away from her wedding date, the ladies relived some of their funniest memories involving driveby stalking, a few celebrity encounters, some crazy behavior, and more. They were a little too fun before their 30s as you will see in this episode.
