Bevin: A Femme Over 40 and her Friends

Bevin: A Femme Over 40 and her Friends

By Bevin
Hi, I'm Bevin! I just turned 40 and my friends are my favorite form of wealth! I'm really passionate about self love and empowering other folks to love themselves exactly as they are. I identify as always getting better, not older. I know that the kinder I am to myself the easier it is for me to learn, grow and stay looking a lot younger than I would if I was stressed about aging and the effects of gravity on my body. You're invited to listen to some great conversations with my friends about how we stay resilient, fabulous and thriving! Welcome to the party!

24. Magaly on Coming Out, Polyamory and Serving in the Military Under Don't Ask Don't Tell
My friend Magaly (aka Mags) is a smart, thoughtful human from my Atlanta family. One of her girlfriends is my bestie Rachael (Episode 3) and I've had the distinct pleasure of being friends with Mags for a long time and getting to know Mags more one-on-one recently during Mags' time in Seattle. Mags attended the Naval Academy and served in the Navy during Don't Ask Don't Tell. At the time closeted, Mags eventually left that career because of the strain of living a lie. Mags further came out as polyamorous and is creating a beautiful life of their dreams with some pretty spectacular people.  Magaly on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/magalyesq/ Bevin on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bevinsparty/ Support the podcast: https://www.patreon.com/fkdp Vox article about Warren: https://www.vox.com/platform/amp/policy-and-politics/2020/1/15/21054083/elizabeth-warren-2020-democratic-primary Attachment: https://www.attachedthebook.com/wordpress/

21. (Solo) Fat Activism, Body Liberation, and Fat 4 Fat
My body love journey has a spin-off! As I became accepting of my body, I found myself performing drag as a fat activist and not even knowing what that was. When I found the fat activist movement I took a full 180 into Riots Not Diets and had some pretty extreme, intense views. I also talk about the experience of getting really attracted to other fat bodies and finding it hard to have a mixed size relationship with my last, shorter/smaller partner.  Support the podcast: Patreon.com/fkdp Join me on Instagram! instagram.com/bevinsparty

18. Beautiful Existence is a Business Oracle, Plant Spirit Channel and Wants You to Live Your Greatness
I met Beautiful Existence (B3 for short--pronounced like Bea Arthur) when we both served as Goddess Guides at the Glowing Goddess Getaway. I was immediately captivated by her connection to Spirit. B3 is a Business Oracle, fusing a tech background and serious spiritual gifts, to help forecast and cheer us into our greatness. She's a solygamist, self marrying in 2015. Survived breast cancer through using cannabis to restore her body temple. She channelled the Cannabis Tarot--we talk all of it and 2020 forecast! After the show I answer a listener question about how to get over an ex you regret breaking up with who won't talk to you.  I love watching B3's astrology and tarot forecasts on her instagram: https://www.instagram.com/beautifulexistence/ Tarot column in Skunk Magazine: https://www.skunkmagazine.com/connecting-with-cannabis-column-new-year-2020/ Cannabis Tarot: https://cannabistarot.com/ https://www.instagram.com/cannabistarot/ Support the podcast and do aerobics with me!

16. My Mom! On Living Tiny, the Origins of My Name and My Birth Story
In honor of my 41st birthday I recorded an episode with my mom, Marianne, about my birth! I found out details I didn't know! I was a rainbow baby, which means I was born after my mom experienced miscarriages. (I mention that specifically because I know a lot of folks out there don't talk much about their experience with birth after miscarriage.) We also talked about how she found and chose my name and how she downsized after living in the same house for 26 years to move into a tiny house after retirement, and a bit about her teaching career. More to come as my mom has so much wisdom to share! Music by Yola: iamyola.com Support the podcast: Patreon.com/fkdp Find me in Instagram: Instagram.com/bevinsparty

A collection of advice centered around my coolest Lyft interactions! How a person I thought was 20 but was really 45 stays looking so young. The advice I gave to a young person considering law school. The surprisingly simple technique a woman actively searching for a sugar daddy uses to meet the "hottest rich guys" in Vegas. How I dealt with drunk people in my car. Plus, a pre-roll about how to deal with body negative family at holiday gatherings.  Support the podcast via my Patreon (a membership site that helps folks support the creators that impact them) Patreon.com/fkdp Let's connect on Instagram! @bevinsparty Love you!

(Solo) Dispatches from the Gig Economy: My Life as a Lyft Driver, Air BNB Host, Rover Sitter, Facebook Marketplace Maven and More App Based Earning
Have you ever thought about renting a car and becoming a rideshare driver? I did it and I drop the nuts and bolts and dollars involved in rideshare driving, airbnb hosting, and pet sitting. I spent the past year deep in the Gig Economy--trading my time for money while still maintaining flexibility to pursue entrepreneurship. CA legislature passed AB 5 with hopes to make rideshare drivers treated like employees--what this legislation gets totally wrong is that any app using other people's time should not be making more than 25% of the cost of the service and rideshare apps take 70% or more of fares. Plus! I just moved to my tiny house in the forest and talk about getting here!  Thanks for your support of the podcast--join at any amount, every dollar matters! Patreon.com/fkdp

(Solo) Grief! And My First Straight Bachelorette Party!
It's Halloween / Samhain and this is a great time of year to learn more about the grief process. Feeling our feelings as they happen and being a loving presence for our feelings is not supported in our society, but there's lots we can unlearn to make grieving easier on us. Also, this weekend I went to my first straight bachelorette party and talk all about being chased out of Napa by wildfires. Books to help you learn how to grieve: Teresa Caputo's "There's more to Life than This" and "Good Grief" and "Glad No Matter What" by SARK. Support this podcast via Patreon.com/fkdp

(Solo) Spirituality
My spirituality is a huge part of my life and why I do what I do. I believe everyone should believe what they want to believe and follow their own arrow. Part of that is exploration, so I get down to what I've found on my path. What do I believe, who is God, why do some of my soulmates not know each other? What's Reiki? How did I find my path to spirituality? What spiritual thought leaders have helped me on my path. Tons of resources and places to start or continue your spiritual exploration.
