Scaredy Chat

Are you afraid of the dark? Did Mars Attacks give you night terrors? Are you afraid of getting into your car alone at night? Or having to plan a perfect work party for 300 people with your job on the line? No one is perfect, well maybe Beyonce. But even as adults there is still plenty to be afraid of, from the rational to the irrational. Some of our fears stem from our childhood, and some of them we pick up along the way. Let Monica Suriyage (VICE, Refinery29, E! News) and Kaitlin Reilly (Bustle, Refinery29, The Dipp) be your sympathetic guides to exploring the fears that won’t seem to vacate your head. Part best friend therapist, part lovers of fear itself, these two will probe deep into the minds of their guests to unearth the roots of the founded and unfounded fears that we hold so close. Find the video version on the Snarled YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVTKO1D_G19UlK03ezaADag We wanna make the podcast even better, help us learn how we can: https://bit.ly/2EcYbu4  For advertising opportunities please email PodcastPartnerships@Studio71us.com   Privacy Policy: https://www.studio71.com/terms-and-conditions-use/#Privacy%20Policy

Rising star singer Rosie Tucker has no fears about performing in front of huge crowds, but when it comes to fish, especially those who want to bite their toes, well, forget about it...that's real terror. And, as they tell Monica and Kaitlin this week, their religious upbringing also filled them with fears they're still wrestling with, and probably always will.
