Podcast cover
Read more

For the 31st episode of season 4, your fearless triad – Courtney Kocak, Sofiya Alexandra & Dave Rankin – is thrilled to welcome hilarious actress, improviser & comedian Laci Mosley.

First: The triad reveals that this is the very last episode ever of Reality Bytes... BUT Courtney & Sofiya will be back by Valentine's Day with an all-new show: Private Parts Unknown, for which we'll be traveling to uncover stories of love & sexuality around the world. Our 1st stop is Helsinki, Finland! Since DFR is in Coupletown, population 2, he's going to be holding down the fort in LA & checking in occasionally as our male correspondent. 

Then: Laci has us in stitches as she explains how she knew it was time to leave NYC, the sad reality of colorism in LA dating, her penchant for scamming, the Fyre Festival documentaries, her dating app experiences on Bumble & Raya (where you at, Ben Affleck?!), her budding bisexuality, the eating ass trend, the single person’s fear that maybe there’s no one out there for them, Tyler Perry’s archetype of a strong black woman, Southern courtship, what’s going down in her DMs (P.S. it’s a little bit scary), the stage of singlehood where you fantasize whole romantic relationships with acquaintances, dating someone with the same name as her for material & why it's hard to decide if she wants to be half of a power couple or an alpha monolith with an adoring beta.

For more Laci Mosley:

Rank #7: Men Have Abortions Too, Part 1

Podcast cover

For the 6th episode of Private Parts Unknown, comedian/engineer Matt Monroe (@heymonroe) joins your hosts Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra. He tells the story behind his recent social media post that began “And now, an abortion story... “ followed by his personal experience after he got a casual hookup pregnant at the age of 25.

Matt made us realize how rare it is to see men we know speak publicly about their abortions. Busy Philipps started the viral hashtag #YouKnowMe and a flood of women shared their experiences. But obviously #YouKnowHim too. So we flipped the script & asked dudes to shout their abortions for this 3-part series. Many thanks to the five men who shared their nuanced stories with a humility & vulnerability so often missing from this hot button issue.

People in Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, and Louisiana need our help. Please consider a donation to https://yellowhammerfund.org/, https://www.plannedparenthood.org/, https://abortionaccessfund.org/, or any other reputable organization engaged in this fight for reproductive justice.

For the 23rd episode of Private Parts Unknown, your hosts Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra, welcome cultural translator Chris Wells for the 2nd episode from our Tokyo, Japan series.

For this 3-part series, we flipped the script & asked dudes to shout their abortions. Many thanks to the five men who shared their nuanced stories with a humility & vulnerability so often missing from this hot button issue.

For the 7th episode of Private Parts Unknown, your hosts Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra are back with the 2nd installment in our 3-part series featuring men talking about their personal experiences with abortion. For this edition, we're joined by two guys — first, former youth pastor/current standup comedian Derrick Murray (@drokcomedy) & then filmmaker/writer/VR extraordinaire Christopher Morrison (@Reality_Plus_) — who exemplify how subtle religious indoctrination can manifest in surprising ways as the shame & stigma surrounding the issue are processed.

As you learned in the last episode, Matt Monroe's Instagram post made us realize how rare it is to see men we know speak publicly about their abortions. Busy Philipps started the viral hashtag #YouKnowMe & a flood of women shared their experiences. But obviously #YouKnowHim too. So we flipped the script & asked dudes to shout their abortions for this 3-part series.
