Everything Is Still Terrible (there's a pandemic on you know)
This time on the podcast we attempted to normalise the tough feelings that most of us are having at this phase of the Covid-19 pandemic (going into Autumn/Fall 2020). Using the ‘Phases of Disaster’ model we framed our current moment as the long ‘disillusionment’ phase which may last months or even longer. We talked about why it’s really okay to not feel okay right now, and what we might do with our feelings of not-okayness.
Consent In Relationships
Here's us chatting about consent in romantic relationships. We originally did this for our Patreon feed, so they've been able to listen to this for ages now. Lucky them! Join now from just $1.20 a month patreon.com/megjohnandjustin
Kindness Part One
This time on the podcast we discussed kindness. Here on our free feed you can listen to our overview of what kindness is and why it’s so important. Then please check out our Patreon to listen to part two of this conversation where we chatted more about how to be kind.
[Sorry the sound isn't as great as usual]
This time on the podcast we answered four listener questions. Here’s a few notes on the questions and our answers. They relate to (1) changing support dynamics in friendship, (2) navigating a reconnecting relationship with an ex, (3) dealing with intrusive thoughts, (4) unhelpful friend’s responses to a shift in gender of partner.
Bonus episode mid-week episode where we talked about our awesome new bingo card, put together by the fabulous Katie Green. Katie is a wonderful illustrator, and podcaster and zine-maker, who touches on similar themes to us at times, but also writes about knitting and sewing. You might enjoy her most recent comic about ace joy and relationship hierarchies.
Feel free to play bingo along with our episodes sometime and tag us on #mjandjbingo with the results. Head over to the website to download it. https://megjohnandjustin.com/uncategorised/bingo/
Desert Island Discs
Sociological review playlist: The Meg-John and Justin desert island discs
This time on the podcast we talked about our desert island discs - the songs that we most relate to our Meg-John and Justin project. The prompt for this was that the online journal The Sociological Review asked us to be part of their ‘Music and Sound’ themed month (July 2020) where twelve sociologists provide them with a 'sociological' playlist.

The Best info ever on being a conscientious caring human in relationship with ourselves and others!!
I cannot overstate just how fun, warm, informative, kind, gentle, and funny I find the Meg-John & Justin podcast to be. I’m enthusiastically sharing it with my friends, with my kids, & on social media. I’ve been listening to a couple episodes a day to catch up & have learned so much — it cheers me so. It’s brilliant the way Meg-John & Justin open up re: their own vulnerabilities & make it clear that we all feel blue, stumble, & make mistakes. Their wise, humble approach spiced with their special brand of humor is what makes this podcast my very favorite for learning to cultivate consensual, caring relationships with ourselves & with others ... whether they be friends, lovers, family members, coworkers, or the cashier at the corner market. I find their work to be so valuable, I signed up as a supporter of Meg-John & Justin through Patreon. They are SO worth it! Thank you both!
So helpful and so conscientious! Detailed advice for all relationship. I’ve been sending this to all my friends. I strongly recommend a listen.
Good for ALL Your Relationships
Having been maintaining a healthy marriage for almost 15 years, I thought I had a solid handle on How To Relationship. Listening to this podcast helps me realize there’s always more to learn and always ways to do better. It’s encouraged me to reconsider my entire approach to relationships—romantic, friendly, familial, and self—always in a funny, gentle, consensual, non-judgmental way. The more you think you’ve “got relationships down,” the more you actually need this podcast.
