    How To Confront A Toxic Family Dynamic

    How To Confront A Toxic Family Dynamic

    Jordana starts the show with a story about having a positive customer service interaction (thanks to some great advice from the listeners). Then they dive into a conversation about setting the scene for a difficult conversation, and Naomi tells us what “doorknob comments” are in therapy. A listener calls in with an advice question about a toxic family dynamic involving her brother-in-law, and asks how to approach the relationship with her sister going forward. How do you share your true feelings without alienating a loved one? The Betchicist email of the week comes from a listener who has a family reunion planned but now feels pressured to miss it for a work obligation. Finally, the Triggered submissions include a know-it-all friend, a thoughtless boyfriend, and some relationship envy.

    How Obligated Should You Feel To Express Your Political Opinions On Social Media?

    How Obligated Should You Feel To Express Your Political Opinions On Social Media?

    Jordana starts off this week by sharing about her recent work in becoming more grounded, and Naomi reveals how slowing down can actually help in preventing the urge to overshare. Then they respond to a listener voicemail all about how the urge to mention her relationship history too early has backfired. Why do we often feel the need to divulge too much, too early? Next they read a Betchicist email from a listener who is feeling pressure from her sister to express outraged on social media about social justice movements. Lastly, they end on a game of Triggered covering how to respond when someone else comments on your body image, being the “learning experience” child, and how to feel when you’re not invited to your own parent’s party.

    Am I Trapped In A Social Media Trance?

    Am I Trapped In A Social Media Trance?

    Naomi starts the week with a confession about falling into a social media spiral after starting the podcast, and Jordana shares her own experience with seeking approval in the podcast review page. Then a listener writes in about a friendship that turned tense after becoming roommates. How do you go about repairing a damaged relationship, especially when you live together? Plus, they talk about the challenge of airing your dirty laundry to mutual friends when it could come back to bite you. Next, they debate the Betchicist email of the week from a listener who found out a friend cheated on an exam. Is it your duty to turn a friend in, or are you obligated to keep their transgression a secret? Finally, they close things with a game of Triggered featuring a jealous spouse, an ever-present sibling, and a slighted co-worker.

    Am I Losing My Friend To Her Baby?

    Am I Losing My Friend To Her Baby?

    This week starts with an audience response to Naomi and Jordana’s previous conversation about customer service, including some practical tips for how to make sure the interaction goes smoothly. Then they dive into the difficult topic of trying to maintain a meaningful relationship with a friend when they begin to have kids (and you don’t). The Overshare email of the week comes from a listener who feels left behind by a friend who recently had her first baby. Is it okay to feel resentful of the change? Then a listener sends in a challenging Betchicist question: should you call out a friend who is the “other woman” in a relationship, especially if you’ve been cheated on in the past. To close the show, they play a round of Triggered about backhanded compliments and feeling drained after work.

    How to Stop Comparing Your Life To Others

    How to Stop Comparing Your Life To Others

    Jordana and Naomi start today’s Oversharing with a convo about allowing a friendship to be the primary relationship in your life (and how to reconnect when you begin to grow apart). Then they dive into the Overshare email of the week, all about comparing yourself to others and questioning your life decisions. Is there a trick to not falling into a spiral of envy? Then another listener writes in with a difficult Betchicist question: should you call out a friend for verbally abusing their romantic partner, or is it always better to keep it to yourself. Finally, they tackle a Triggered scenario about dating someone who is constantly negging you in subtle (and not-so-subtle) ways.

    How To Get Better At Taking Feedback

    How To Get Better At Taking Feedback

    This week, Jordana and Naomi start by telling us why it’s so hard to take feedback sometimes (and how to tell your therapist what they could be doing differently). Then the Overshare email of the week comes from a listener whose fiancé has a family that feels like she’s stealing him away. Should she discuss the conflict directly with his family or let him handle it himself? Another emailer asks how to respond when her husband comments negatively about her body during pregnancy. Finally, they finish things out with another game of Triggered, including a check-grabbing opportunist, a mid-wedding proposal, and some awkward doggy-talk.

Great podcast!

I love this podcast, but sometimes the hosts dwell a little too long on each email. They tend to repeat themselves for the last few minutes covering each topic. I would much prefer shorter responses and covering an additional topic!

Don’t go to better help

I like this podcast but as a therapist Dr. Naomi should know that Better Help is a super problematic company and shouldn’t be sponsoring this podcast or encouraging people to get help from them. Use your insurance company or Open Path to find affordable therapy and psychiatric care. Almost all providers offer telehealth now. Better help and similar companies (like cerebral) sells data and treats providers terribly and has incentives that are unethical. I know I and others have give them this feedback but it seems they don’t care. Disappointing because I love the podcast!

Stop with the “you knows”

Was really enjoying the podcast and the topics but Dr. Naomi says “you know” constantly so I don’t think I can keep listening, it is super annoying
