In this podcast, two best friends talk about the things nobody is talking about. The hope is that through the power of conversation we can encourage people to be vulnerable in their messiness & the sticky points of life.
Motherhood - Still Living Up To the Hype?
In the Season Finale of MUT, Cobi & Sadie question the idea of motherhood. Both wonder if this is the path for them. If so, does this child need to come from their uterus, or is adoption a better fit? They realize early on that they are just scratching the surface. Because this episode is layered - covering the ethical considerations in this current climate, the restrictions we place on love & how femininity is tied to childbearing.
Rescue Me - Spiritual Blind Spots
In Episode 9 of MUT, Cobi & Sadie discuss a darker version of spirituality - The ways in which vulnerable seekers can be manipulated, exploited & harmed on the path. Both provide personal stories & the hard lessons learned when we place fallible humans on a pedestal & look outside ourselves to be saved.
More than Meets the Eye - Invisible Diseases
In episode 8 of MUT, Cobi takes us on her journey of being diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder, Lupus. She doesn't look sick but she lives in chronic pain & grieves the loss of the able body she once had. At first glance this episode is about physical health - but keep listening as this conversation morphs into the ways in which we resist change, our present reality & how we find our way back.
Behind Every Cobi and Sadie, Stands a Lisa
After much cajoling, Cobi & Sadie finally managed to get their other bestie on the show. Episode 7 is really a love story, starring three girls who grew up together & will grow old together.

Immersed together they are often transported back in time, to a place where no adults are allowed.
Forever Waiting & Not Creating
In Episode 6 of MUT - Cobi & Sadie discuss all the ways perfectionism hinders our creativity & propensity to take risks.

But these two are focused on growth not success, so listen in as they explain the difference.
Suffering - Can't Live With It, Can't Live Without It
