As three best friends who graduated college during a global pandemic, it is safe to say life is not going as imagined. But when does it ever? Amidst the whirlwind of it all, this podcast is a platform for us to voice our uncensored thoughts, opinions, and personal struggles. We’re loud, we’re outspoken, we laugh a lot, we cry a lot - all in the name of growth and learning. Join us as we put a mic to our intimate conversations. Trust us - you’re not alone.
Empathy is Power
This episode has been a LONG time coming. Empathy, compassion, and forgiveness: can't very well scroll through Instagram without at least one of these words popping up. What do these words mean to us? Is becoming a more empathetic and compassionate society possible, or are we being young and naive? Does being empathetic make you a pushover, or is there another side to the coin that people aren't seeing? For our final episode of season two, we discuss why these concepts are crucial for growth minded people, and most importantly, whether being empathetic is ultimately a power or a weakness.
An (Un)wise Anniversary
In celebration of our one year milestone that occurred on May 21st, we have a very special, extra long episode for you. The "Friends" special isn't the only reunion you can look forward to because this week we're joined by some of our incredible guests from the past two seasons as we share some laughs, some serious talk about the state of our world, and some nostalgia for where we started and where we are now. Listen now for this one-of-a-kind (Un)wise celebration!
What's So Positive About Body Positivity?
From Khloé Kardashian to Lizzo - the debate over who the body positivity is really here to serve is brought into question again. Plus size vs petite. Fat girls vs mid-size girls. Normal bodies vs Instagram. While discussing our own experiences with weight and body image, this week we unpack all the good and bad with body positivity.
At this point, we hope most people know that climate change is real, and after all the nature docs that have come out in recent years - terrifying. But no matter how much we all try to do our part, is progress actually being made? Is there anything more that we individuals can do, or are we all just hoping that corporations and governments wise up sometime soon? In this episode, we’re joined by environmental educator, Jill Grime, and Sunrise Movement organizer, Naina Agarwal-Hardin to help make sense of the climate change movement.
New News, But Really It's Old News
COVID-19, women’s safety, and racism: all relevant, hot button, and incredibly important issues to have been dominating headlines this past year. But let’s be honest - nothing we’re seeing in the news today is new. As much as this pandemic has forced society to continue focusing on these issues, is anything really all that different? Do you also feel like you’re just screaming into a void? Tune into this episode and check out what we have to say!
Word of the Day: Hackneyed
If you saw our last #wisdomwednesday - then you already know that this week we’re talking about concepts or words we think have lost their meaning through overuse. Mental health, cultural appropriation, and apology: all important in theory, but what should they really mean? Tune in to hear what we have to say.
The hosts are funny, relatable, and entertaining to listen to. I recommend this to everyone!!
