    Letting My Freak Flag Fly - A Solo Birthday Episode

    In the first solo episode since "Is She....Letting Herself Go," Danielle discusses the ways she has always had to "tone herself down" to fit into the confines of societal norms and expectations. However, now that she is older and has stopped restricting herself so much, she is working towards creating a life where she can feel as close to 100% of her true self as often as possible. This means podcasting more, containing to work towards body acceptance and allowing herself to continue to savor aspects of life which we're taught to actually limit ourselves. In this episode, Danielle discusses:

    How we're taught from a young age not to be "too much."What she wishes she had been told about careers, sexuality, and monogamy.How not restricting herself anymore has actually led to more self-confidence.The way giving herself permission to admit her needs and desires has led to more sex and better sex.Why she's no longer buying into the concept of "happiness," and what she's focusing on instead.What she wants to give her kids permission to do, that she has never felt the permission to do herself.All the ways she wants to be weird, and the ways she's letting her freak flag fly higher and higher.

    The Five Love Languages, Veruca Salt Style

    The Five Love Languages, Veruca Salt Style

    People always ask Danielle and Adam to do an episode on The Five Love Languages. So, they're finally doing it. But, they're doing it their own way. Danielle talks about why she refuses to choose one love language. Adam talks about his concern that the love languages quiz would be viewed more of a "test" and how that affected his answers. The two discuss how their love language styles would have most definitely changed over the course of their relationship, and how certain important aspects of their relationship don't seem to fit into any of the love languages. Stay tuned for part two next week when Danielle and Adam go even deeper into what they would want and need from each love language.

    Inclusion Is A Verb, With Hanif Fazal

    Inclusion Is A Verb, With Hanif Fazal

    Danielle and Hanif discuss the life events that impacted Hanif so greatly that he co-founded the Center For Equity and Inclusion. Born to a father of Indian descent from Tanzania, and a Mexican-American mother, Hanif breaks down how being a person of color has affected his identity in every space he's occupied in life. Also, how his parents' desire to have their children assimilate into American culture caused a lot of confusion concerning how he should feel about his mixed background. For these reasons and more, he became intensely set on teaching others how we can make schools, workplaces, homes, and communities feel more accepting and comfortable regardless of someone's gender, sexual orientation, etc. Danielle asks Hanif small, actionable steps we can all take immediately if we want to be a part of the movement towards inclusive spaces.

A must add to your podcast line up

My hubbs already knows whatever Adam and Danielle discuss, will more than likely make an appearance in our next deep conversation 🤣 I am newer to this community and sooooo happy I found it! It’s refreshing how real and relatable this couple can be. I’m grateful they choose to share their journey with us and help us open up to topics that are sometimes hard to tackle. Their honestly and vulnerability is truly an inspiration. You won’t be disappointed so go ahead and subscribe! 💛

Awesome and Real!!

I love how real you are when you talk about different topics. You have taught me so much as a married woman and you don’t even know how much I appreciate it. I find myself talking with my wife about many of these topics. Thank you!!

MaestraFrancesca ,

Thank you Danielle and Adam!

The most recent episode is, like so many episodes before it, EXACTLY what I needed to hear this morning. I related to so much of what Danielle and Adam said. We are a culture of meeting milestones instead of enjoying where we are in the moment…waiting for the other shoe to drop…working so hard to get your kids and yourselves to a better place and still being anxious once you’re on the other side…I’m writing this review halfway through the episode and am looking forward to finishing it while I drive BACK to my kid’s school to bring the “special family item to share with the class” that she forgot because (1) it’s a goddamn Monday, and (2) we forgot to write ourselves a reminder note and stick it on the dining table last night.
