I’m a Dateable Badass

January 22, 2021

What does it mean to be a dateable badass? I get help answering that question with my guests, Yue Xu and Julie Krafchick, hosts of the Dateable Podcast. 

In today's episode we talk about why we do the things we do. We talk about how the Dateable podcast got its start, how it's grown in the last 5 years. We cover relationship trends we've seen both from their perspective as dating sociologists and from my own woman-on-the-dating-street perspective. We dig into empathy and its role in our relationships and we learn how all of us can seek to be better humans.

A Badass Guide To Advocating for Your Health

A Badass Guide To Advocating for Your Health

November 15, 2020

Do you feel like your healthcare providers really listen to you when you voice a concern about your own health? Do you often feel like you have to repeat yourself over and over again to be taken seriously? 

In this episode of the Accidental Badass podcast, I'm talking to Katie Sue. Several years ago, she knew something was off with her health. No matter how many times she spoke to her doctors, none of them seemed to take her pleas seriously to do more testing. Until one day, she broke down in a specialist's office. What transpired after was a roller-coaster of health issues that brought Katie Sue to where she is today. 

Though we talk *a lot* about women's health issues and the endocrine system in this episode, tune in to learn why it's important to advocate for your own health and how you can break free from the idea that an illness is 'all in your head.'
