Episode 01: Candace Bushnell on Divorce After Sex in the City

The Divorce Doctor

I cannot tell you how many hours I watched Sex and the City analyzing the foursome’s every move to understand how relationships work. Did you spend hours watching it too? I was so excited to have a chance to interview the creator of Sex and the City Candace Bushnell for my Inaugural Podcast!  It felt like such a huge gift learning from the woman who taught a generation about dating to hear her take on divorce.  A critically acclaimed author, journalist, and television producer, Candace Bushnell shares her candid wisdom she gained from her divorce in our discussion on the Divorce Doctor. As I’m sure all of us know, or at least find out at some point in our lives, relationships can be draining. Sometimes you can find yourself putting so much energy and effort into someone who may not end up being worth it in the long run. For those of us who’ve experienced this, it can be one of the most exhausting endeavours we could ever allow ourselves to bother with. Some may say the effort’s worth it, some may disagree. My recent guest of the Divorce Doctor Podcast, Candace Bushnell, argues for the latter. Candace is the international best-selling author of 10 books, including Is There Still Sex in the City?, Sex in the City, and Summer and the City. Sex in the City, published in 1996 was the basis for the HBO hit series, and two subsequent blockbuster movies. I loved having Candace on the how to share her insights about the contract of marriage. We discuss the necessity of thinking long and hard before putting so much of your energy into a man, dealing with your spouse's emotional immaturity, and how you can take your divorce as an opportunity to find your voice.

Is There STILL Sex in the City? A Candid Conversation with Candace Bushnell, Creator of 'Sex and The City', on The Visibility of Middle Aged Women, Dating, and Sex

We Should Talk About That

Who out there spent their 20's (and 30's) watching Carrie Bradshaw traipse around NYC in designer stilettos with her gal pals, downing cosmos and breaking hearts along the way? If this is a pop culture touchstone for you, then you will certainly get a kick out of this conversation! The Two Jess(es) sit down to talk with the creator of Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell, and ask: Is there STILL SEX IN THE CITY? As women like (or unlike!) Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Miranda approach their glorious middle age, Candace, in her typically hilarious style, shares with us her experiences and findings, which she has chronicled in her book: Is There Still Sex In the City? The three cover subjects like 'cubbing' not to be confused with 'cougaring,' the Mona Lisa Treatment, and what it feels like to be dating or not dating, after you have spent many decades dedicated to marriage, children, career, and now find yourself single. Many uncomfortable moments as these three ladies contemplate the fact that EVERYONE is having less sex...but why? Meet Candace:Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed, internationally bestselling author of Sex and the City, Lipstick Jungle, The Carrie Diaries, One Fifth Avenue, Trading Up, Four Blondes, Summer and the City, and Killing Monica. Sex and the City, published in 1996, was the basis for the HBO hit series and two subsequent blockbuster movies.
