WHAT MAKES YOU TIKTOK - ”RANDI”?
Continuing on from my interview with popular male feminist ally, 'The Alchemystic' on TikTok, I'm speaking to my sister from another mister: “Randi” - aka “FeelingRandi78”. Randi has gained a reputation as one gloriously sassy dame. She’s funny, smart, informative and hella sexy. Women love her and men feel super threatened by her. Go Figure.
It's a jungle out there, with all these MISOGYNIST podcasting, dating coach dude-bros continually trying to tell independent, confident, sexually-empowered women that their stocks as a life partner are comparable with a beaten up old used car.
Yes. It's that bad. Randi and I have fun dissecting the insecure subtext and trying our best to convince women NOT TO LISTEN TO THESE GUYS - listen to US instead!

WHAT MAKES YOU TIKTOK: RYAN BAYRON? P2
So, this part of the interview is where Ryan's redemption arc becomes clear. He reveals just how much he truly believed in the religious ideology that perceived women as the 'other'; not quite people, but as mere objects to be used and controlled.
THANK GOD HE SNAPPED OUT OF IT or women wouldn't have such a fabulous feminist ally in our corner. There are so many quotable quotes in this half of the episode, I was wanting to put all his gems on bumper stickers.

WHAT MAKES YOU TIKTOK: RYAN BAYRON? 1/2 (interview)
'WHAT MAKES YOU TIKTOK' - RYAN BAYRON, PART 1/2
It's been a while between episodes! There are a few reasons for this, one being, I have had my back wheels bogged in the TIKTOK swamp. So - I figured why not lean in to that 'problem' by grabbing a popular Tiktokkers and interviewing them on my podcast? And, guess what - my first victim is a MAN! And he's a FEMINIST! (femanist?)
Ryan goes by the handle "The Alchemystic" - he's a smooth talker, and by that I mean, he just has such a velvety way of talking and storytelling that he creates a comfort level in very uncomfortable conversations. He literally became an overnight success on tiktok but if you check out his WEBSITE you'll see that his trajectory has been leading him to where he is now. He's here to HELP!
Mentioned in this ep: DesireeBStephens Other Recommended Tiktokkers: RANDI (feminist) Evann (male feminist and anti-racist) and previously mentioned Sunn Mcheaux - linguist and anti-racism activist and Dragonflies and Whiskey (lgbt Feminist). To name a few. And definitely follow #nativetiktok to support creators from YOUR country.

A Few Words with Aunty Deb Ballangarry
Debbie Ballangarry is a proud Indigenous Australian woman, whom is currently studying LINGUISTICS. We bumped into each other across a crowded TikTok recently (where she posts loads of educational information and supports Indigenous Artists, performers, activists and Creators). You could say we hit it off.
You can hear her smiling when she speaks. Our chat covers a lot including the bad old days of segregation and The White Australia Policy. We also discuss was like for her to grow up Indigenous in the 70s & 80s and yet, still share our commonalities as 'Aussies'. As an older woman and a feminist I was particularly interested in talking about being an Elder. In her culture, Elders are respected and revered. In so called Civilised 'western' culture, Elders are often pushed aside and mistreated.
Aunty Deb, is a tenacious and witty human being - we had a grand chinwag. Oh and added bonus: I learned a couple of Aboriginal words!

Boundaries & Synchronicity with ”The Consent Wizard”
Meet Mia Shachter - AKA "THE CONSENT WIZARD" They are, among other things, a consent and boundaries coach. Visit the SHARE THE LOAD website for more information as well as a fabulous list of courses you can partake in to help you navigate your personal boundaries and expand your ideas around consent.
I particularly wanted to talk boundaries in this ep. As someone living with childhood trauma anxiety and abandonment issues, I definitely over burden myself in many ways. And that's where we started. Where we ended up is a beautiful free fall into the concepts of fate, destiny, linear time, object reality and that magical feeling when you find yourself smack dab in the middle of a moment that you felt you'd been preparing for your whole life.
LINKS: Mentioned in this podcast "Betty and Sarah" also known as fab consent experts whom I have interviewed previously: Betty, the author of The Wheel of Consent and Sarah the creator of the Comprehensive Consent resource for parents and educators.
