Episode 16 | Nastaran Tavakoli-Far

On our first international show, Daniel is joined by Nastaran Tavakoli-Far, all the way from London via the magic of the internet.  We talk about what it’s like growing up as an immigrant in England and what that does to one’s sense of personal ambitions.  

Of course, without Andy guiding the conversation, Daniel takes things all over the place and we end up talking about envy, masking intelligence, male feminism, complicated people, economics, and how Dan is the wife of the show.

Along with being a journalist, Nas is the host of a phenomenal podcast called The Gender Knot.  You can find it on AudioBoom or iTunes.

At the end of the show, Daniel gets into a pretty heavy VulnerabiliBuddy.  Trigger Warning: this is about sexual assault and he uses the R word several times.  If this is a hard subject for you, we suggest tuning out after the interview.

Episode 13 | Rhea Butcher

We’re late this week, but we have an amazing guest to make up for it!  Rhea Butcher showed up to talk to us about literally everything!  We dive into racism, sexism, Charlottesville, baseball, rape jokes, sobriety, and how to own up to our mistakes and “be a man.” 

The biggest things we learned this week are how to handle people with love and compassion, even when they’re wrong? and how to attend a protest without creating a riot.

Check out Rhea and her wife Cameron Esposito on Take My Wife (while SeeSo is still around!) and find her on Twitter and Instagram!
