Stress Management and Self Care Listener Mail: Minisode 6

We be drinkin’ and we be chattin’ about our listener mail! We are back with another minisode with YOUR thoughts and stories on a very important subject: STAYING SANE IN AN INSANE WORLD! 

On our previous minisode we shared personal strategies for combating stress and talked about our favorite self-care rituals that keep us feeling good when the world around us feels bleek. This episode we flip this question to y’all!

We read an email from our favorite Ohio listener who shares some of her tried and true moves for tackling her social anxiety. Tux’s high school bestie weighs in with her experiences standing up for marginalized communities after returning home to a small town after nearly a decade spent living in a progressive Northeastern bubble. Two mental health pros Canh Tran, MSW and Kimberly Beury, LMHC LPC, offer some professional guidance on how best to alleviate stress at both micro and macro levels.

Please Don't Feed the Trolls: Minisode 4

We be drankin’ and we be chattin’ about our listener mail! We are back with another minisode with YOUR thoughts and stories on a light albeit frustrating subject: INTERNET TROLLS!

As a podcast our strategy of ignoring and blocking is highly effective but painfully boring. We solicited stories from listeners about how they deal with internet trolls. With their help we get a bunch of novel options for managing those anonymous under-bridge dwellers.

We hear a voicemail from culinary historian Sarah Lohman who explains her tiers of trolldom and how she responds to each. Cara Nicoletti, brooklyn-based triple threat (butcher, baker, and author), shares the ways she cares for herself amidst frequent sexist attacks online. The Wine, Women and Words podcast and Karina Sahlin from We're Just Here To Help podcast both weigh in with their most creative methods of countering trolls. Annie, our favorite listener, wrote in with a deliciously fun spin on responding to the worst people on the internet-- Troll Cakes, the bakery/detective agency here that will send a cake to your troll with their comments written on it.

Y’all came through with such amazing feedback this episode! Like Tim, y’all are the real MVPs! Hug yourselves for us in a lingering but non-creepy way. Thanks!

Your Voting Stories: Minisode 2

We’re back with another minisode to read YOUR thoughts and stories on a subject near and dear to our hearts: VOTING!

With the help of our listeners, we discuss getting teens & young people interested in voting, election conspiracy theories, what Texas was like before the midterms, voting at the grocery store in Nevada, compulsory voting & preferential voting in Australia, and the likelihood of voting more often with easier access to polling places.

Thank you guys so so so very much for reaching out to us with these amazing stories and thoughts. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate it, and how good it makes us feel to know there are so many people out there who feel just as strongly about voting as we do.

Honestly. It means so much to us.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

To prepare for our next minisode, we also announce next month’s subject, and ask you to write in with your thoughts and stories on that subject.

Our idea is that to move forward as a nation into a less racist future, we need to face and confront our racist past in a much more real way. While stories of slavery and segregation are taught to young people in schools, it often seems that those subjects are whitewashed, glossed over, or rushed through, because as a nation we’re uncomfortable with the horrors of our past. We believe that really facing that part of our history, through our education system, could do some real good when it comes to beginning to heal the wounds of racism in the future, and we’d love to hear your thoughts on that.

Please listen to the episode and drop us a line by Saturday, December 15th. We’ll read as many of the responses as we can on minisode 3 next month!

You can send us a voice memo or email us at BeyondReproachPod@gmail.com, or feel free to slip into our DMs if you're feeling cheeky. Just be sure to get those responses back to us no later than 12/15.

We can’t wait to hear from you!!!
