    The dangers of future-tripping (Encore episode)

    The dangers of future-tripping (Encore episode)

    Cheers to the present! We will never be able to tell the future, so why spend the energy worrying about it? In this episode of Thick & Thin, my goal is to stop wasting my time trying to control the narrative, but sometimes the anticipatory anxiety and endless what-ifs, win.

    Introducing Fighting for LGBTQ Rights in Kenya from The Hidden Economics of Remarkable Women (HERO).
    Follow the show: The Hidden Economics of Remarkable Women (HERO)
    Homosexuality is illegal in Kenya, as it is in more than half of African countries. But public attitudes have begun to shift. According to Pew Research Center data from 2002, only 1 percent of Kenyan respondents said society should accept homosexuality. As of 2020, 14 percent believed homosexuality should be accepted.
    On today’s episode of the Hidden Economics of Remarkable Women, we follow the key people driving this change. Reporter Eunice Maina interviews women and nonbinary LGBTQ activists such as Marylize Biubwa, the co-founder of Queer Republic, and Ivy Werimba, a communications officer at Galck+, a coalition of 16 membership-based LGBTQ+ organizations from across Kenya. Then host Reena Ninan speaks with Eric Gitari, the co-founder of the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission in Kenya. His litigation has helped bring recent LGBTQ policy victories.
    The Hidden Economics of Remarkable Women is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Roberta Buffett Institute for Global Affairs at Northwestern University.

    It’s ok to be sensitive (Encore episode)

    Sensitivity is not an overreaction. So in this episode of Thick & Thin, I'm glad to reconnect with my sensitive side knowing that I genuinely give and care about other people to the best of my ability.

    Forbidden Fruit (Encore episode)

    Forbidden Fruit (Encore episode)

    We all hate being told what to do. It's a tale as old as time. So in this episode of Thick & Thin, I try to discover why. Why is it human nature to crave what we can't have? Is it for thrills? For power? For knowledge? Or perhaps, all of the above.

My solitude is found here

This has been my favorite podcast for years. I always turn to when I’m going on a long run, or a car drive, when I feel like I need a new perspective, or want to learn something new. I’m saddened to see have to let this go. Katy, you’ve done a remarkable job over these last couple of years. You found a niche that I haven’t found another podcast to fill it. You are an exceptional podcast host. I’ll continue to listen to Match Made in Manhattan, but first I need to wallow in my sadness of this chapter coming to an end.

Farewell & THANK YOU!!

With this podcast coming to an end, I’m finding myself thinking back to when it first started. I’ve been an avid listener and follower of yours for so, so long. This used to be my go-to podcast during my commute to college internship and now what I happily listen to in the early stages of my professional career. Thank you for being such an amazing story teller, both personally and historically.

Can’t wait to see where the Match Made pod goes with your redirected time and attention. You guys are such a great trio. Sending much love from Indianapolis! xx

P.S. I recently purchased your tote bag and I get so many compliments. Keep up the great work, Katy!!
