The Male Relationship With Mental Health ft. John & Matt from The Irregular Hour
Gina is joined by her two childhood buddies, John and Matt, for a podcast collaboration. John and Matt host “The Irregular Hour” (available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify). In this episode, the group discuss why men are less likely to ask for help with mental illness. Society’s standards for men in terms of dealing with their feelings are very harsh and not compassionate whatsoever. This stems from the overall negative connotation around mental illness as a whole. Why is it seen as a negative to get help? The media and entertainment are certainly partially to blame. Matt brings up an interesting point about how men tend to bottle up their problems to avoid them because talking about them brings negative feelings to the forefront. How can we encourage men to ask for help? In addition, Gina, John and Matt discuss how to set boundaries with friends to protect your space and mental health. A tough thing to recognize is when enough is enough. It’s crucial to cut the negativity out of your life. If you or a friend need help- please reach out. Therapy is a great option if it is affordable for you. The Hear Me app and Better Help are two free resources. You can follow Gina at @Queengina_4 on Instagram, Matt at @ _mattthomas and John at @johnbro69. Please check out John and Matt’s podcast to listen to another episode from this collaborative trio! Enjoy.

Black Lives Matter - Featuring Yuri
*Explicit language used* We are at the beginning of a revolution here in America. The Black Lives Matter movement is gaining more and more momentum everyday. I invited a very strong and inspiring woman onto my show. Her name is Yuri and we’ve been friends for a long time. Yuri is fighting for the rights and equality of her black community by using her influential voice and sharing her experiences. We debrief the audience on what’s been going on and what lead to the riots and protests- the murders of George Floyd, Breona Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery are at the forefront of everyone’s minds BUT there have been many more innocent black people murdered at the hands of white people for the pure fact that these people are black. I also asked Yuri how white people can be allies to the black community. Yuri shares her raw experiences of racial injustice and racism she’s experienced. I am so honored to be friends with Yuri- a brave, courageous queen. I feel truly special that she accepted my invitation to come onto my podcast. I am fighting for black lives and equality for the black community. Justice. The statement “All lives matter” won’t hold true until Black lives matter.

My First Solo Trip
Hi all! As a woman with anxiety, it’s not easy for me to step outside of my comfort zone. I decided that it’s 2020, a new decade, and it’s time for me to spice things up.

In this episode I discuss the benefits of taking a solo trip, overcoming anxiety when you’re on this trip & why I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks. Hope you enjoy this short episode :)

Two of my inspirational and strong coworkers join me to talk all things ghosting and share cringeworthy stories. Can we end ghosting? Why is everyone so ticked off about ghosting, but it still exists?! Let’s put a stop to this blasphemy.
