9/28/2018
More
In our most Delilah-ish episode yet, we talk in soothing, nighttime voices about how hard it is to make and keep friendships in adult life. Why don't we have sleepovers anymore? When did that become a thing of childhood past? In this solo episode, we cover these topics and perhaps the most important question of all: should we just move in together?Check out the show notes for this episode here!---CONNECT WITH US:Instagram | Website | Merch | PatreonIf you want to listen to all 40+ episodes...

You're Allowed to Be Whatever You Are // Kristin + Tina

7/11/2018
More
In Episode 32, we talk about the idea of "niceness" - whether we were considered nice or not growing up, what niceness even means, and how terms like it are not nearly descriptive enough to get to the core of what a person is like. We get into the nitty gritty about how what we tell ourselves, our friends, or our children can impact them for a long time after. Moral of the story: you are not defined by how nice you are and there is no one thing that describes your whole self.Read the show...

Love Yourself at Every Point // Keneshia Raymond

4/25/2018
More
This week, we chat with Keneshia Raymond - wedding creatives educator and founder of Curvy Unicorn Bridal - about her why: why not? Keneshia is full of so much hard-earned wisdom, but the question she asks herself, "Why not you? Who else is going to do it if you don't?" sticks with us hard. She is a fierce body positivity advocate and doesn't love the idea of a romper, so of course this episode is one to play on repeat.Learn more about Keneshia and read the show notes here!---CONNECT WITH...
