Welcome to Self, where we discover what it means to be human in a society that shames us for trying to be ourselves. Within Self, we will delve into topics that make us who we are. We know there's a lot of BS in this world that tells you what you are and what you are not. We're here to help you and ourselves, filter through that. Our conversations range from body positivity, to politics, to identities and everything else in between. We represent intersectionalities and aim to cover ground and topics that people resonate with. Come along us as we embark on this journey of Self.

    OMG WE'RE BACK! Wow, we can't believe it's been almost a year since we've done this. Some thaaangs have changed since then, but we cover it ALL in this episode! This episode is all about catching up, sharing where we are now and talking about how we're evolving The Self to better reflect who we are today. We also go deep into our stories through interviewing each other. We hope that you might be able to pull some stuff that resonates with you as well. We thank EVERYONE who has reached out to us about pursuing The Self further. It's been in our mind since the end of 2017 and the inspiration we've received from our friends galvanized us to do this again.

    The Self Podcast: Season 2, Episode 9

    It's another episode The Self Podcast and this week we're joined by Jordan's friend, SaQuoira Chiles!  She came to visit for his birthday and we knew we had to have her on the show. She offers us unique insight into a topic that's not often discussed or represented authentically - motherhood. We also talk about relationships, dating, adulting and of course, her beautiful creation. It's an episode full of laughs, a little pettiness and a lot of wisdom. We hope you enjoy listening to this Queen's story as much as we did. If you like what you're hearing, subscribe to us on Google Play Music and iTunes to eave a review!

    The Self Podcast: Season 2 Episode 8

    The Self Podcast: Season 2 Episode 8

    Hi Everyone! Welcome back to Episode 8 of the Self Podcast. We both thought a lot about a title for this episode and decided that “Unpacking” summed up our discussion the best. This week, we wanted to take some time to process everything that has been happening in our country lately. It has felt like the past two weeks have been filled with events that have been hard for us to process individually. From the Tragedy in Las Vegas to it being National Mental Health Day, we felt like it was only right to allow ourselves the time to “unpack” the effect these events have had on us. We talk about National Coming Out Day, Indigenous People’s Day, Trump’s handling of the Hurricane in Puerto Rico, and more. We think this above all this episode represents the importance of giving yourself the time and space to process things. It can all become overwhelming and overstimulating if you don’t properly decompress. If any of what we cover in the Podcast sparked something inside of you, please reach out to us on Social Media, or send us an email at theselfpodcast@gmail.com. Thank you so much for listening and remember you can always tune in and subscribe on iTunes and GooglePlay! Listen to the episode here.
