Today Is Tomorrow's Alarmist Episode
Season 2, Episode 12: I begged, pleaded, and stalked the fantastically beautiful, brilliant, and neurotic host of The Alarmist, Rebecca Delgado Smith,  into coming on the podcast in an attempt to destigmatize mental health. (Trust me, my stalking made this episode kinda awkward...)  Rebecca uses her own anxiety, or catastrophizing, as fuel for her podcast as she examines past tragedies and who is to blame.  That was over a month ago. And now...well, what a long, strange trip it has been. I suggest you listen to this episode, and to The Alarmist Podcast, and keep in mind that we have been through worse in the past, and there will be worse in the future. Today's insanity will eventually lead to a new normal for tomorrow.  Follow Rebecca Delgado Smith on Instagram @thealarmistpodcast

Season 2, Episode 11: You need to know: U=U and this is not the first pandemic we have survived
Raif Derazzi is a smoking hot, all natural body builder, bad-ass and he just so happens to have HIV. HIV that is undetectable, scientifically, because that is how far science has come.  I know, I know, we are all struggling through this pandemic. I feel like I'm on a friggin' strugglebus, trust me. Some days I forget to eat. Many more days I have eaten twelve meals by 10:30 AM.  This is life for now. This is grief. This is anxiety. This is now.  This episode is important for now. This episode is important because we have gotten through shit before, and we will get through shit again.  This pandemic will pass. We will lose people, just as we did in the AIDS pandemic from 2008-2012.  And WE. WILL. SURVIVE. As a people, even if not as individuals.  Please follow Raif on FB, Insta, and YouTube @RaifDerazzi

Season 2, Episode 10: My Mom Tried To Kill Herself: Sometimes your mess is your message
Season 2, Episode 10: I specifically chose to air this episode this week, in honor of my upcoming book, Ten Steps To Finding Happy, and with the hopes of raising awareness of teen suicide prevention and the need to destigmatize mental health #10StepsEndTheStigma. Unfortunately, this whole pandemic pain-in-the-ass crushed my dreams. Instead, we will be doing a virtual book launch on March 20th starting at 3 PM EST in the FB group Finding Happy. Aloise blew me away when she suggested that maybe, somehow, on a deep, spiritual level, we chose our parents. We chose our parents to work through something we need to get to the next level of higher being. Sometimes your mess is your message, she suggested. And damn, it hit me hard. In this episode we talk about suicide, mental illness, and why we got saddled with the burden we did, and why we are the perfect people to carry that burden.

What's Up With Men and Therapy?
Season 2, Episode 9: The difference in men who seek therapy and women who seek therapy is staggering. And yet...when a man loses his shit, it usually comes which much more dire consequences. So why won't men seek mental help? In today's conversation I talk to Dr. John Schinnerer, who is just as much of a research dork as I am, has the same potty mouth I do, and was the psychological consultant for the Pixar movie "Inside Out."   (That's kinda the coolest part, no?) Dr. John also has his own podcast, The Evolved Caveman, and specializes in working with men who excel in every aspect of their life -- except the ability to form solid, healthy, interpersonal relationships. Be sure to check out his pod, I'm a huge fan.

All You Need Is Love -- and maybe a little sperm
Season 2, Episode 8: There is no better way to cap off February's theme of love, lust, and everything in between than this interview with Allie Fisher of The Mommy Confessions.  It's trademarked, bitches! At the time of this interview, Allie was uber pregnant with her second child, but she was a real trouper. Allie is far braver than I am, as she chose to do this whole child-bearing thing without a partner. Twice.  There is nothing that says love more than the love of a mother for a child -- especially during a temper tantrum.

What You Think You Know About Kink
Check out my interview with one of my new favorite people! Madam Chastain is a podcaster, a mom, a polyamorist, and a retired sex worker. She talks candidly about sex addiction, abuse, low self-esteem, and the journey she took to finally liking who she is. You can learn more about Chastain and her whole polyam family on the Pod Pod Cvlt Cast -- and yes, that Cvlt with a "V", which I think is sexy as hell.

Make Your Vagina Happy
Season 2, Episode 5: Welcome to February, lovely listeners! This month's episodes are going to be devoted to love, lust, and everything in between. And why not start the month with a great big bang!  (pun intended) In today's episode I talk with Sofia Fortin, founder of the Happy Vagina project, about sexuality after motherhood, how you can get your groove back, and why sex is vital in a good relationship. Also, stay tuned for a few tips about tantric sex, which sounds both terribly appealing and terribly time-consuming.  Am I right?

Fat
Season 2, Episode 4: I gotta be honest, I couldn't figure out what to name this episode. I thought about stealing the title of Paige Fieldstead's book, "Confessions From Your Fat Friend," but the truth is, Paige is so much more than anyone's fat friend. She is smart and funny and brave and bold and doing her best to Mom and work and live her dream. Just like the rest of us.  Her book is beautiful. Her book makes you think. I highly recommend the read.  But for now, enjoy the episode.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do (a.k.a. Conscious Uncoupling, a.k.a. Everything Legal Told Us NOT to talk about)
Here it is, faithful listeners. You asked for it, you got it. Here is the E! True Hollywood Story behind the break-up of Lindsay and Sharone. It has been highly suggested by our legal department that we issue a warning: This episode is explicit and violent and not for the faint of heart.  Consider yourself warned and use caution before listening. Additionally, you should know that this episode description is extremely sarcastic and Lindsay sniffles a lot and cries a teensy tiny bit.

Season 1, Episode 29: What If Your Child Died
Four years ago today, Isabella Risinger died just before her first Christmas, just before her first birthday. Isabella was born with Trisomy 18 and her death was the result of complications from this genetic abnormality. In today's episode of Neurotic Nourishment I interview Isabella's mother, Kristina Walling Risinger, about how to move forward with life after such a devastating loss. Moving on seems nearly impossible, but Kristina credits her faith in God, the support of her husband and community, and her desire to help others as the key elements that helped her to *move forward* rather than "move on." This episode was tough to record and may be uncomfortable to listen to. But listen to it. It's worth it.  Kristina is a grief counselor, and a blogger at justbreathe-mama.com. Her website is kristinarisinger.com and today, on the anniversary of Isabella's death, Kristina has launched her own podcast, Faith Breathed Hope. Please listen, rate, review, and subscribe as we support this incredible woman.
