Friend Zone Your Mom
Join Brooklynn back on the mic after some time off due to an illness as she discusses all things “Friend Zone Your Mom” worthy. That’s right. We are covering boys that are way too close for comfort with their mamas. From psychology by way of Sigmund Freud, and Greek Mythology by way of Oedipus (and the “Oedipus complex”)— Brooklynn goes there. She also includes a deeply personal, and deeply creepy, first-hand experience with one of her old exes and his bizarre and boundary-less attachment to mommy dearest. This is an episode so shocking... you really won’t want to miss it!

Sex Brain + Ghosting
Join Brooklynn in episode 14 as she dives into a few controversial topics like "sex brain" and "ghosting". She addresses what it's like to experience instant regret after a date or hook up, because it wasn't something authentically viable for the long-term or in alignment with you as a person in the dating landscape. B also covers when it's acceptable to "go ghost" on a connection, when it's definitely not, and how you can overall handle it in a better way instead. Lastly this episode takes a comedic dive into the well known "hot to crazy scale" in reference to women, and Brooklynn creates her own spin for the theme of men she sees in her own dating landscape (and likely yours too). We hope you enjoy this vulnerable and goofy episode and that it spits you out the other side as a better communicator, boundary holder, and dater in general. You're welcome!

Interdependence and Big Dick Energy
In episode 13 join Brooklynn as she gives you a life update; both personal and dating-wise. We talk about what it's like to date as a woman with "Big Dick Energy", aka a strong career. As well as that phase of dating where things start to feel like they're falling off... We dubbed it the "Got'Em or Not'Em" phase, and cover the important intersection of effort and energy in order to keep that shitty phase at bay. Stick around until the end to hear about the major differences in codependence and independence, and how we can all work to be a little more harmonious within the connections in our lives via the all too important-and not nearly enough addressed- Interdependence.

Purity Culture and Coming Out With Ambrie Bosworth
This week's episode is both a treat- and a hard pill to swallow. Brooklynn decides to take a (semi-personal) crack at the pervasive purity culture that still dominates the life of young people today. But she doesn't do it alone! Queue episode 12's special guest: Ambrie Bosworth. Ambrie has an educational background with/and Bachelor's Degrees in Anthropology, Ethnic Studies, and Women Studies as well as just completing her Master's Degree in Social Innovation. As someone who grew up in purity culture and as a queer woman, Ambrie speaks to her experiences of unlearning the harmful indoctrination and eventually coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community... And of course, she is Brooklynn's younger sister. Together the girls tackle what it was like for Ambrie to come out after being raised in a high demand religion and conservative community. We touch on everything from dating life as an out woman and being fully yourself, to handling conservative family and community, to stepping into your own and releasing performative action subservient to the male gaze and overall purity culture in general. It's a good one. Buckle up.

Dating Post-Pandemic: I Finally Ditched All My Exes T-Shirts
On Episode 9 of "A Date In The Life", Brooklynn breaks down how to date, post-pandemic. From leveraging apps, facetime dates, and what to order on a first date... To keeping first meetings short. (And maybe even socially distanced?) Brooklynn covers how to date again after we've all been cooped up- AND how to get on the same page as your potential partner with your own COVID boundaries. (Hey, it's like politics. Maybe a mood killer, but better to be on the same page now instead of finding out you're not... later.) We even dive into the infamous men's T-shirt as the ultimate sleepwear, and how Brooklynn now *officially* doesn't have any. Is it because she is moving and has no space in her suitcase? Or is it because she is legitimately down to truly sever ties? Join us for our first double digit episode to celebrate getting out there, for us, and you!
