So, you married a "creative"...
In this episode of the podcast, Mr. Hallease and I talk about our marriage and being married to a "creative" or artist.  This episode is a collaboration with #HMAY a marriage podcast featuring Beleaf in Fatherhood and  Yvette - Mrs. Melanin. There are a lot of things you have to learn to handle, not only as the artist but as that artist's spouse especially if you are interested in partnering with them to grow their business.

Should you move for your partner?
If you're in or have been in a long-distance relationship, knowing when to take that leap and move is difficult.  It's also hard when you both live in the same city but one partner is considering relocating for work or better opportunities. In this episode, we discuss the times we've relocated for each other and how we stumbled through it. #MarriedPodcast BEAST CAST AUDIO SET UP: https://kit.com/Hallease/the-beast-cast SUBSCRIBE! https://www.youtube.com/hallease?sub_confirmation=1 FOLLOW US!

Do you Sabbath or nah?
Whew, y'all this is a silly episode of #TheBeastCast.  We're talking about keeping a Sabbath and how we balance work with life.  As a creative, I'm slowly realizing how important it is to build stipulations and ground rules for myself in terms of taking breaks and recharging.  Needless to say, Mr. Hallease's coffee didn't kick in until about halfway through the episode though so bear with us on this one.

Getting a Sleep Divorce...
We're back with more Beast Cast episodes! Today we're talking about getting a Sleep Divorce and if it makes sense to not sleep in the same bed as your partner. Also, what types of relationships maybe work best by not sleeping in the same room/bed.  This whole topic was sparked because we recently bought a new mattress.

Our Astrology Signs & Personality Test Results || The Beast Cast 21
On this episode of The Beast Cast, we discuss our astrological signs and how we feel about Astrology overall as a pseudoscience.  We also discuss our results of taking the Ntrinsx personality assessment.

"Take back your voice" Communication is our 2019 theme | The Beast Cast 20
This year on #TheBeastCast we're focusing on communication.  We want to make sure we're communicating more in our marriage but also in our work relationships -- whether that be with different clients, bosses, or coworkers.  This means focusing on the words we use and not making assumptions about others. It's a simple topic but as you'll see in this episode -- a very poignant one.

Did we get married too young? || The Beast Cast 19
Hallease met Mr. Hallease when she was 19 and they were married by the time she was 21. It's a beautiful thing finding a forever partner so early in life, but it has it's drawbacks as well.

Can we find a new normal? || The Beast Cast 17
After a long and challenging 2018, we've settled into our apartment and are now having to contend with figuring out what our new normal is as a married couple.  We had learned how to weather the storm, ignoring individual grievances to stay sane, but now that the load is lifted who are we?

Alzheimer's, Caregiving and B. Smith || The Beast Cast 16
Mr. Hallease and I weigh in on the much-debated discussion of B. Smith and her husband Dan Gasby.  What does it truly mean to love someone "for better or worse" and "in sickness and in health?" How does the definition of marriage evolve as we age and our roles inevitably change? This was a really hard topic to cover on the Beast Cast, it forces us all to come to terms with mortality and the different ways we can lose a spouse even when they're still technically living. Below are some more resources about Alzheimer's and caregiving: https://www.alz.org/alzheimers-dementia/what-is-alzheimers https://www.caregiver.org/alzheimers-disease-caregiving

He called me pudgy || The Beast Cast 15
He called me pudgy, y'all! After the initial shock, it got us both thinking about communication again and how much honesty is a crucial part to any relationship.  How can you be honest with your partner without "going nuclear" as well? Is there a recipe for communicating potential negative traits without debilitating your partner's self esteem?

You're NOT black enough || The Beast Cast 14
Am I black enough when I'm with you?  What does it mean to be black enough when there are infinitely many ways to exist? Is your blackness invalidated when you marry outside of your race? In this episode of The Beast Cast Hallease and Mr. Hallease discuss the intricacy of her black identity juxtaposed to their interracial relationship.

The romance is gone. || The Beast Cast 13
How do you keep the romance going when you've been together for almost a decade and through many iterations of yourselves? Is there romance anymore once you've learned so much about a person? We'll attempt to discuss in this week's episode.

Are we minimalists now? || The Beast Cast 12
One of the subscribers asked us to talk about different ideas around "The Art of Tidying Up" and minimalism.  What have we given up to bring more joy to the marriage? Turns out I've given up quite a bit without even realizing it.

There's always a pecking order || Beast Cast 02
Your other relationships with family and friends change when you get married, and that transition can be tough. In this episode, we talk about adjusting those relationships. This episode also ties into the idea of "leaving and cleaving" which is covered in the book of Genesis (2:24-25). Another podcast that talks about this is "How Married Are You?" with Beleaf in Fatherhood and his wife Mrs. Melanin (S1 Ep6) Check that episode out here: https://anchor.fm/hmay/episodes/HMAY--006-Who-should-I-listen-to----My-Husband-or-My-Family-e1ujqh/a-a4llmm
