Kate is Emasculating

By Zii Mizzle - Oct 24 2019

Feedback: Love the show’s content 100%. I must say, it just makes me feel uncomfortable to hear Kate pick on Mike’s grammar, word choices, and general mistakes, every single show. Sometimes...just let it go. If Mike says he has never attended an “AA class” instead of AA mtg, just let it go, for the podcast at least. No need to correct him and then laugh dismissively. Those small things add up to an uneasy listen.

Rank #2: Episode 97: Patricia Moreno: Fatphobia & The Lies We're Told About Being Thin

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s episode is one of the most important we’ve ever recorded, and you’re going to hear about the email Kate got from our guest that got it all started (and led to some tears). Patricia Moreno is our guest, and in this episode she peels back the curtain on the illusion that our culture sells us about being thin, and how “fatphobic” we truly are. This conversation created so much awareness for both of us, and it will really change the way we look at ourselves and the world around us.

Patricia Moreno has been training, mentoring and educating people all over the world for over 30 years. In an effort to end her own struggles with her weight, eating disorders and body image issues, she created the intenSati Method, which combines her expertise in fitness, dance, martial arts, yoga, nutrition, mediation and spiritual practices. Encouraged by her own transformation and the life-changing stories of her students, she has gone on to create several other workouts, courses and workshops.

Patricia is committed to being a powerful force of change in the world and she continues to find revolutionary ways to uplift her students and help them change – both inside and out.

Rank #3: Episode 153: The Surprising Path Beyond Depression, Anxiety, and Fatigue with Kelly Brogan, MD, author of Own Your Self

Podcast cover
Read more

While I love sharing ideas that are against the grain, I rarely go full-on controversial.

But today, I am.

To be honest, I’m squirming as I write this because my central nervous system has trouble with the inner explosion that happens when someone has been offended by something I’ve said or an idea I’ve shared.

My husband, on the other hand, is built differently. With Scorpio rising, he goes right for the truth in an at-times-shocking way and is far less (and sometimes not at all) concerned about what other people think.

So here’s the deal:

We have an incredibly important podcast episode for you today that is going to piss off some people in our community and also has the potential to save some of their lives.

If you choose to listen in, would you be willing to do the following?

• Know that everything shared by our guest is grounded in evidence and if you choose to learn more, you’ll be amazed by how much data backs up these unconventional ideas.

• Know that I do not believe there is one right thing for everyone (nor does our guest). So, please know that if what is shared in this episode challenges the choices you’ve made but you feel really good about those choices and they’re working for you, I celebrate that with all of my heart.

• Know that if what is shared on this episode challenges some of the choices you’ve made and you are pissed off, but there’s also a part of you that knows that those choices aren’t entirely working for you, then dig into the resources shared.

That’s a lot of preamble. That’s how nervous I am.

This episode is about mental health and psychiatric drugs and the pharmaceutical industry in general, and there is critical information shared that you need to know as a human to have informed consent about what goes into your body.

Also, the beliefs shared in this episode are not in any way the party line. It’s why our guest, the brilliant NY Times bestselling author, Dr. Kelly Brogan, has been launching her revolutionary new book, Own Your Self, in a grassroots way. Her ideas are so groundbreaking (and controversial) that she knew she wouldn’t be waltzing onto The Dr. Oz Show or any other major media (because hi, hello, they’re funded by pharmaceutical advertising dollars).

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

• The truth about chemical imbalances and the shocking discovery made from 6 decades of research

• Why the information you get on Google is completely biased and how to find the truth

• How to send your body signals of safety to turn on your own healing mechanisms

Know this: We are at a critical time in history where we are being called upon to be far more conscious consumers and realize the source and motives of the media we take in.

I’m incredibly grateful for the privilege to have a platform to share messages like the one today that may not always be the most popular but are so necessary.

After you’ve listened in, I want to hear from you:

What did this episode bring up for you? What did you learn? Did it cause you to question anything that you’ve held as truth so far?

Rank #4: Episode 143: Your Period, Moon + Cyclical Living Questions Answered!

Podcast cover
Read more

The number one thing I’ve heard since making the rounds on all the podcasts and launching Do Less is that people’s minds are blown by the information about cyclical living and how we have this inner blueprint for productivity that no one has ever taught you...until now.

It’s pretty straightforward if you have a normal, healthy, regular 28-day menstrual cycle, but there are so many reasons that may not be the case.

Pregnancy. Menopause. Being a man. Bleeding on the full moon. Hormonal birth control. An IUD. Breast cancer treatment. Nursing. Irregular cycles that vary between 17-43 days. PCOS. Perimenopause. Working in a corporate setting that doesn’t support this whole cyclical living thing.

Since Do Less came out, my DM’s and our inbox have been filling up with your questions about your period, the moon, and how this whole cyclical living and planning thing works for your specific situation.

So, Mike and I recorded a brand-new, incredibly meaty episode of The Kate & Mike Show to answer all of your cyclical living and planning questions.

(Well, mostly I answered your questions and then Mike asked me more.)

Here’s what we covered:

• How do you plan for your cycle if you’re pregnant, nursing, in perimenopause, or are past menopause?

• The cyclical macrocosm of pregnancy and how the trimesters align with the phases of the moon/menstrual cycle/seasons and how that may impact your creativity and productivity.

• How does this work if you’re on hormonal birth control or have an IUD?

• How do men’s cycles work? How can we support the cycles of the men in our lives? (We really got into this one and answered it a way you probably wouldn’t expect.)

• My personal, very efficient period, new moon, and full moon rituals.

• What to do when you bleed on the full moon vs. the new moon.

• How to change the timing of your cycle if you desire.

• Best practices for the luteal phase when you’re feeling prickly and low-energy.

• How do you marry your own menstrual cycle with the lunar cycle and what do you do with that information?

• And so much more!

If you’ve had questions about how your energy cycles, productivity cycles, and creativity cycles work, I’m 99% sure we covered it in this episode.

Plus, even if you don’t think you have a cyclical living question, I guarantee we’ll answer a question in this episode you didn’t even know you had.

Once you’ve listened, we want to know:

What was your biggest insight from today’s episode? Do you have more questions that we didn’t cover? How will you use what you learned in your business and life?

Rank #10: Episode 137: Sobriety, Substances, and Choosing to Live Awake

Podcast cover
Read more

:I was listening to two friends on a podcast talk about their journey with substances (drugs and alcohol), and then when I came home to have an editorial planning meeting with Mike about our podcast (which looks like me saying, "What do you want to talk about?" to him while we clean the kitchen) he said:

Why don’t we talk about alcohol and sobriety?

Part of the reason our marriage works is because we have these glorious moments of being totally synced up (and then the other part of it is because we work at making it work).

I’ll be honest: I knew this conversation was a long time coming. I knew it would be powerful because Mike and I have somewhat unusual relationships with substances.

What I did not expect is that it would be hard to hear about Mike’s past.

I assumed that because we’ve talked about his past with drugs and alcohol A LOT, I wouldn’t have a hard time hearing him talk about it on this episode. I was wrong.

Today’s episode is pretty different than a lot of our other ones, but it’s really important.

You’ll hear:

• Why I wasn’t alarmed when I first learned of Mike’s history with making money in illegal ways (and why I actually thought it might bode well for our future).

• What my parents taught me about alcohol and why it kept me from wanting to rebel by using it.

• Mike’s unconventional approach to getting clean that didn’t involve ever setting foot in an AA meeting.

• A few unsettling stories that, even though I’d heard them before, made my stomach turn.

If you’ve ever struggled with substances, if any of your loved ones has or is, or if you’re triggered at all by the idea of examining your relationship with alcohol or drugs, this is a must-listen episode.
