Introvert N the City

By Marsha B.
The Introvert N the City Podcast is a safe space for under-represented communities to discuss everyday life events. The idea is to shift our conversations from general banter to a social engagement that educates the hosts as well as the listeners.

It is important for our experiences to be discussed in a way that creates an opportunity for growth and healing. Each episode is jam-packed with great discussions on current events featuring special guests. Every new moon, Energy Healer Janine O. will co-host, providing guidance on what the moon represents and the best way to set intentions.

Understanding And Dissecting Masculine And Feminine Energies With Stacey The Alchemy Goddess
This episode, I sit down with Spiritualist, Tarot Card Reader and Energy Healer, Stacey, to discuss the duality of masculine and feminine energy. We are currently living in a world that projects toxic masculinity and that's because there is a clear imbalance of feminine energy. During this conversation, we redefine masculine and feminine energies as dualities that live inside of us and make us who we are. No, buying your son a cooking set doesn't make him feminine. We've assigned masculine and feminine traits to life skills, emotions and feelings that all humans - man, woman and non-binary - carry. Follow @IntrovertNtheCity on Instagram!

New Moon, Who Dis? How To Heal Yourself With The Scorpio New Moon Energy
It's transformation season! This new moon in Scorpio is a powerful one, because it's also a Super Moon. No surprise there since Scorpios are superb people. This New Moon energy focuses on how we can shift internally so that we can make room for all the greatness that awaits us. Scorpio is represented by the 8th house, which focuses on death. Out of all the houses, the 8th house is the only one that doesn't highlight people. This means we should take a closer look at ourselves to evaluate what patterns or behaviors need to "die" so that we can work towards healing ourselves. Follow @IntrovertNtheCity on Instagram!

INTC Podcast: Kink 101 AKA Everything Other Than Missionary Featuring Jenell and Boone
I've always considered myself knowledgable when it comes to sex. It wasn't until a recent trip to California that I learned just how diverse sex and intimacy can be. One day while sitting by the pool with friends, my homie Boone asked if I was into kink. "Kink? What's that?" I asked. "Anything that's not missionary," she responded. I was intrigued. During that conversation I learned that kink is an umbrella term that includes just about every sexual act under the sun. Spitting, handcuffs, doms, submissive, role playing, spanking - you name it, it's included. I also learned more about fetishes. Everything that I thought I knew went right out the window during that conversation. I decided to bring that conversation over to the INTC Podcast. I sat down with Jenell and Boone, sex-positive educators in the kink world. Grab your pen, notepad, and maybe even your vibrator for this quick tutorial on all things KINKY!
