    245: Partners Aren't Projects with Corey Tindall

    Standup Comedian, Host of the podcast Kind of an Expert and the weekly comedy show “Ope!” in NYC, Corey Tindall joins Chelsea 15 minutes in after meeting and matching on Queen of Hearts, a dating gameshow podcast hosted by the one and only Jujuebee. 
    Together they get deep on dating women with anxiety and depression, the consequences of not commanding emotional space within a relationship, clocking behavior rather than calling a person out, the natural tendency toward becoming jaded, demonstrating soft support in a relationship, no one is ever the perfect person, reaching a new baseline of happiness, the downside of being the stoic partner, when men take the team mentality of a relationship too fear and treat girlfriends like projects, leading by example instead of telling someone how to change their life, leaning into the 50% chance that we have no idea what and who will actually make us happy, and more gems of genius.

    Listen to Corey and Chelsea's racy meeting on the dating gameshow, Queen of Hearts Season 2 | Episode 8 on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Wondery, and everywhere else you stream.

    243: The Self-Intimacy Journey with Ohouo Goa

    Heartbreak Coach, Inner Power Queen, and Author of Breakups, Healing, and Self-Love, Ohouo Goa joins Chelsea 10:30 minutes in for the most personal, vulnerable, and healing conversation yet.

    Together they discuss becoming that which pains us (for instance, the cheater), where the fear of intimacy originates from, cultivating body acceptance when your body carries the history of trauma, and empowering yourself to live beyond society’s boxes and embody your entire range of self-expression.

    This episode is a lesson on teaching yourself to stay in the emotions, honoring where you stand in your journey, unlocking repressed experiences and pulling down all the walls on the road to self-intimacy.

    * I cried, I laughed, and I changed. Thank you, Ohouo.

    240: We Are Contradictions with Tucker Atterbury

    240: We Are Contradictions with Tucker Atterbury

    At the end of March, in the midst of heartbreak and what felt like a personal falling out with myself, I set my Hinge to Los Angeles, a city I never spent one happy day in, where I lived out the most heartbreaking years and relationship of my life, a city that also just so happens to be the only place I’d ever consider leaving New York for — for the next chapter and stage and… for love. 

    Maybe I was falling back on my oldest and truest pattern of all — pursue a long-distance relationship — or maybe my heart wanted to take me somewhere and, under the weight of heartbreak, I was desperate enough to listen and follow... a brave, new possibility... for the podcast, that is. ;) Or, like the guest I’m learning from today, maybe I, too, am full of contradictions. 
    Joining me 11 minutes in, Santa Barbara native, Tucker Atterbury aka Mr. Logic, is the first Hinge connection I got to meet and record with in-person. Together, over the course of 2+ hours in May, I began fulfilling my original intention from back in March — in the midst of heartbreak, to let my creative passion lead me, to pause dating and heal... away from men, in front of men, and in thanks to men, to listen and learn from Cali guys, and slowly to begin to open my heart again... because I always take the scenic route... and maybe LA is the way or along it. 

    In this episode, you'll hear us discuss the many crossroads of life and love… and, with Tucker’s signature touch, philosophy will be woven throughout his perspective. 

    I hope you learn with me... and that, just by listening to us, you'll begin to ask yourself new questions that liberate you, too.

    PS: As I release this, I'm wondering whether there aren't two types of online daters: those who are looking for their answer and those who are still asking the questions. If you had to choose, which are you?
    KEY TOPICS: the freedom in winging it and the romantic irony of settling down, being cheated on and not being a player, the anxiety of intimacy and exploring non-monogamy, the discomfort of being seen and drifting apart when you're loving on cruise control, manning up with stoicism and numbing oneself from the spectrum of vulnerability, trauma comes from two places and the quest to motivate oneself, the slippery slope of substance abuse and the shame of recognizing your own dependency, the dance between honoring one another's sovereign independence and inevitably objectifying each other, being bullied and gravitating toward female friendships, the fine line between friendship and romantic love, the problem of free will and the experience of choice, ADHD medication and cannabis use, not over identifying with our own consumptions and the pursuit of moderation, betting on yourself and the standstill of privilege, the ego is necessary and othering it for your own well-being. 

    Some References: Jean-Paul Sartre, objectification, anguish, being for itself vs. being for others; absurdism; free will vs determinism; Daniel Dennett, user-illusion; Albert Camus, An Absurd Reasoning; virtue ethics; Seneca, Stoic philosophy; Elizabeth Gilbert, Your Elusive Creative Genius, Socrates, the gadfly

Thank you!

Wow! I feel like those conversations are just for me. The relatedness is insane! I am still being moved and learning from Chelsea even being in the field myself. Keep up the good work and continue to use your platform to empower and encourage women.

Genuine & Inspiring Conversations

Chelsea is such an incredible host and is genuine in her ability to navigate such heavy topics with her guests in a way that makes them feel warm and comfortable. These episodes feel as if you were sitting down at a table with good friend, sharing experiences in a safe place that offers support & empathy. This show offers so many unique experiences from a variety of individuals which makes each episode valuable and inspiring.

Insightful and Thoughproving- Epsiode 224

As a woman in her mid to late 20s, I, myself, am still very much learning about how I operate in relationships with people and how to navigate what works and doesn’t work for me while I’m in a relationship. It was very enlightening and reassuring to hear these two women professionals speak about both their experiences while comparing and contrasting their own life journey through sex + intimacy. It was comforting to hear that I too share the same relatability about ultimately learning how to listen to my internal self. I too am accepting my internal evolvement.

I strongly recommend tuning into this podcast! 🙌🏼
