    S4 EP18: Race Matters | Tyler Warren

    S4 EP18: Race Matters | Tyler Warren

    Lightning only strikes once, and this episode is a true testament to that! 
     
    Always asking the hard questions, your Triggered hosts found themselves in a compelling dialogue on race with none other than their videographer, Tyler Warren! Believing EVERYONE should be part of the discussion about the racial challenges facing our country today, Alechia and Dani decided to bring Tyler out from behind the camera for this episode on all things race.
     
    From mass shooters to being gaslit by the media to the indoctrination of racism, don’t miss the uncomfortable questions we all need to be willing to ask and answer in this very real episode of Triggered AF.


    KEY POINTS:
    - What makes a mass shooter? Race, family, socioeconomic status?
    - Do racism and slavery affect white people?
    - Is it impossible for a white person to not be racist?
    - How can we better educate each other on race?
     
    QUOTABLES:
    “I only know Black people from on TV. And according to the television, they're violent and crazy and ghetto and hypersexual. So when you don't have access to diversity, then what?”
    “We've got to learn how we can not only coexist but work together so that we're building a global community of people who are not ashamed and shy away from differences. But who relish in them, who ask questions when they don't understand.”

    S4 EP16: Trigger Happy

    S4 EP16: Trigger Happy

    If you have joined the Triggered family before, you know Lola and Elsa - Alechia and Dani’s low vibrational doppelgangers. And while your hosts have alluded to their lower vibrational selves before, in this episode, they take a deep dive into what it looks like when your lower self comes knocking at the door. 
     
    Sharing real scenarios of when Lola and Elsa took the wheel, tune in as your Triggered queens discuss why you must honor your lower vibrational self and examine what they could have done differently on their healing journey to figuring it all out!
     
    KEY POINTS:
    - How to recognize (and name!) your lower vibrational self 
    - Check-in with yourself - what are your highest triggers?
    - Why you can’t fight your lower vibrational self
    - Creating a new default - what now?
    - Who are Lola and Elsa?
     
    QUOTABLES:
    “I believe in allowing Lola, my lower vibrational self, to ride shotgun. And the reason I let her ride shotgun is because I need her there to help me identify the triggers.”
    “Because I am clear and aware of the fact that there is darkness in me that exists, I can choose. It is all about choice and personal accountability. I can choose to make a different decision.”

    S4 EP15: Jerome Coleman | When Toxic is Life

    S4 EP15: Jerome Coleman | When Toxic is Life

    Is it toxic to sleep with a man on the first date? Is dating, for men, about finding the right one or the right one at the right time? And is there a difference between a hoe and a f*ckboy?
     
    Tune in and get toxic as your Triggered family welcomes Jerome Coleman - 12-year pro athlete, real estate investor, and creator of the “Vacay Experience.” Sharing his path from hurt to healing, tune in as Jay spills the tea on all things toxic from a man’s perspective. And flips the script on Alechia and Dani with his own questions!
     
    KEY POINTS:
    - Are only men toxic?
    - What are the red flags some men chose to ignore?
    - How do men decide who is “the one”?
    - The rise of the “City Girl”
    - Is it toxic to sleep with a man on the first date?
    - Showing up for men in relationships too
    - Why it’s important to curate your circle 
     
    QUOTABLES:
    “Toxic is fun. It’s unfortunate, but it’s fun.”
    “If you're not ready physically, mentally, or financially, you shouldn't be dating for one, and you definitely can't have a wife. How are you going to maintain a household or anything of that nature when you're not there and ready to be there? Because it takes work.”

Everything I didn’t even know I needed

This podcast talks about topics that are absolutely taboo, but in a way that invites you to grow and learn with them. They don’t pretend to know everything, ANDDD bring in people we can all learn from! Subscribe now, follow now, and listen to every word! This podcast is EVERYTHING!!

CyRhonda ,

Relatable Content!

These ladies talk about real, relatable content. Specifically the Villainous Victims episode. And it’s true…we are all villains in someone else’s story, which can be tough to admit. But necessary to understand.

pattypimp ,

It’s RELATIONSHIP not religion! Dani hit it on the head!

I loved Dani views of this topic because I grew up in church also , but as an adult I figured out for myself that we truly should have a relationship with God and I listen to Mike Todd a preacher from Tulsa and he also states same thing. Belief and relationship with God doesn’t require rituals or any of that. I don’t let anything that I’ve seen in the church sway me from my belief in God. I believe in God not man or a religion. God does want us to fellowship with others but God is everywhere! I turn on my worship music all the time at home, in the car etc. it doesn’t require us to be in church because we can have church anywhere
