    E 99: All My Favorite Men Are Dead: A Conversation with Poet Kate Burns

    Kate Burns is a beautiful human. You are going to thoroughly enjoy this conversation as we discuss her newly published book of poetry, “All of My Favorite Men are Dead.” This is a book of healing. A book where Kate takes you on a journey through the pain brought on by the hands of men and their sexual abuse. This book is for YOU too, she so brilliantly left the page after each of her poems blank for YOU to write your own poetry, words, draw pictures, or whatever you need to do to work through your own trauma. It is a book for the collective and sure to bring healing to many. Listen in to Kate’s conversation with us about how she got here, to a place where she now has a published book sharing her most damaging experiences.  Also, she explains her very catchy title. 

    You can read more about Kate and her books on her website. You can also purchase her book on Amazon.

Please reach out for help. There is always another side to things, you just have to make your way there. Warriors, hang on, we are going to make it together. Always remember that YOU are NOT Alone. Others have been there, felt what you are feeling, and made it to the other side. We love you.

    E 98 The Most Hated Man on the Internet: Revenge Porn

    E 98 The Most Hated Man on the Internet: Revenge Porn

    Revenge Porn, have you ever heard of it? It was something Sarah and I only heard about a year ago, but apparently Hunter Moore was capitalizing on this invasion of privacy since 2010 with this website, "Is Anyone Up?" On this episode we discuss the docuseries, as well as the topic in general as it goes way beyond Hunter Moore.  It's upsetting, but an important topic to discuss so that we are all informed. 

    Don't worry, we lighten things up at the end. It was time to bring back a favorite segment, "It's an Amy's First."  I am chuckling just typing this because its a funny one. 

    We hope you are all doing well Warriors. Remember, stay Wild and Weird. 

    We love you.

    E 94: Losing My Religion

    E 94: Losing My Religion

    “Oh life is bigger. It’s bigger than you. That’s me in the corner. That’s me in the spotlight. Losing my religion. Trying to keep up with you and I don’t know if I can do it. Oh no I have said too much. I haven’t said enough.”  ~Losing my Religion by R.E.M.

    Oh no, we've said too much…but really we haven’t. In this episode, Sarah and I speak our truth on a topic we haven’t mentioned before because it is hard to talk about. We both have residual guilt from our years in religious organizations that it still makes us feel bad about sharing our honest stories. BUT, it is important to talk about those things that are most difficult, so here we are. 

    Join us on the wild journey as we discuss being Catholic, Baptist, visiting Pentecostal services, Young Life, the Evangelical world, and the god awful Purity Culture.

    Our stories look different, but we both walked away needing to be healed by damage done and ended with true freedom in faith.

    Listen with an open mind, let us know if you relate, disagree, or even share your own story by leaving a voice message here www.unqualifiedtherapists.com or emailing us at unqualifiedtherapists@gmail.com .

South Park mom ,

My favorite podcast!

This is by far my favorite podcast to listen to. I love the mix of serious and funny topics. I’ve enjoyed every podcast even if I thought it was something I wasn’t interested in. Sarah and Amy have a way of pulling you in and making you want to listen to whatever they want to talk about. Love it!

My favorite podcast

This is my absolute favorite podcast! The topics are so important. Everyone needs to listen to these everyday stories and advice. It’s such a great mixture of research and experts plus the amazing chemistry of Amy and Sarah together. It’s fun, informative, and most of ALL RELATABLE!!!

Love this show!

I was suggested this show by a friend, and I truly enjoy it so much! The content is amazing and I get so many gems from it. My only critique is that the background music is somewhat distracting and takes away from the conversations. Maybe it’s just me, but I wanted to share because at times it pulls me from really absorbing the conversation. Still love the show though!
