    Ep. 96 Ain't Gone Move Without Spirit ft. @itsjujubae

    *NOTE* Nikeeta’s computer is raggedy so unfortunately there’s a popping sound in her audio. Please forgive her! I tried to fix it but alas...

    Nikeeta is solo on this episode...well, kinda. She gives an update about a campaign in upstate NY to provide justice for a Black trans woman, Chanel Hines who’s one of the QueerWOC’s of the week. The other queerwoc of the week is none other than Juju (@itsjujubae) from A Little Juju podcast. Money has a FANTASTIC interview/conversation with Juju that you absolutely do not want to miss! Nikeeta rounds out the show taking a turn at the Tumblr cake questions. It’s no surprise that her answers and Money’s answers are wildly different.

    Ep 93: Trauma Responses & Tupac Conspiracies

    Money is back for another solo episode while Nikeeta works an overnight shift somewhere in the bowls of Upstate New York. Money explains what a trauma response is, and 5 domains in which they manifest. For the topic, she shares some conspiracy theories that gave her a good laugh on twitter and some she even subscribes to herself. We celebrate Lady Phyll Opoku-Gyimah as #QueerWOC of the week and ask hard questions about deal breakers when we all are one emergency away from financial ruin.

    What is a trauma response? Money talks through the 4 paths reacting to trauma can take, and the 5 domains of immediate and delayed responses to trauma.
    A trauma response is any immediate or delayed reaction to a traumatic event (remember, trauma is anything that overwhelms your full faculties to cope) that is directly tied to attempting to cope with that event.
    Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn (children mostly, but definitely can manifest in adults)
    Emotional Reactions
    Cognitive Reactions
    Physical Reactions
    Behavioral Reactions
    Existential Reactions

It’s still amazing!

“Stumbled upon the pod after reading some list (not sure which one), and I enjoyed the first few eps I heard” < I wrote that 3 years ago. Now, this podcast is a critical biweekly wellness space - We get spiritual, mental, occupational, and environmental wellbeing insight specifically for our QueerWOC community.
