Our careers are such a big part of our lives, and maybe because of that, we often have the biggest doubt about if what we're doing is the right thing, if it's what we're meant to do, and how the heck to go about figuring that out.
It's something Emily and Kourtney have both struggled with, and in this episode, we're sharing the heart of the struggle. Join us as we talk about our personal experiences and transitions, but also - all the questions and all the layers that apply to so many of our professional lives.
Figuring out friendships as an adult can be chock full of anxiety and emotion.
It's not always as simple as it was when we were kids - there's no school every day with a readily available pool of people our age, there aren't always neighbors or siblings available. Throw in jobs, partners, and kids, and it gets even more complicated.
In this episode, Emily and Kourtney are talking about all things friendship - the challenges, the hurts, the evolution. Join us as we talk about how to make friends, how to cultivate deeper relationships, and of course, getting vulnerable through it all.
Reading the news no longer feels like a casual thing. Everyone has an opinion, and it's largely negative these days, making it just about on par with talking politics and religion.
But really, is that warranted?
In this episode, Emily and Kourtney are exploring news and media, talking about its history and what it was meant to do, how to consume news without getting overwhelmed, how you can engage and support journalism, and more.

Our bodies have become a weapon we use against ourselves. And if we're always thinking about it as a war, how can we ever find any peace?
In this episode, Emily and Kourtney are talking about how talk about our bodies–– from the first time we remember drinking a diet shake, to what the studies say about body image, to that mean roommate in your head looking for proof that you're not enough.
Let's talk about it, and move closer toward making peace with our bodies.
Spoiler alert: It doesn't involve wasting another second thinking about a number on the scale.
