Let’s get vulnerable. Kara and Becky have both been, and are both going to therapy—not with each other, of course, but on their own. In this episode, you’ll hear about why they sought a therapist, how they found their current therapists, and even what they discuss with their therapists. At the end of the day, our mental health is just as important as our physical health.

Don’t let the intro fool you; this episode is in English! But it’s all about Netflix’s Emily in Paris. Kara and Becky discuss what they loved about this show, along with their hopes for season 2.
Correction: About 6 minutes in, Kara mistakenly refers to Emily’s actor as “Lily James” when, in fact, she is portrayed by Lily Collins. Oops!

Makeup. A lot of us wear it! Becky has worn it for years, but with the pandemic upon us, she is wearing it less often. Kara, on the other hand, had almost never worn makeup until last February. Listen to a cis woman and a trans woman discuss their respective personal journeys with makeup.
Note: Kara would like you to know that she has improved significantly at eyeliner since recording this episode.

We hit 1000 downloads back in July, and we did an Instagram Live to celebrate. This is that Live … only it’s not live any more, of course. Kara edited it. The audio quality is rougher than usual. Listen to Kara and Becky talk about a variety of subjects, from the origins of this podcast to their neighbours to a Holly Bourne book and more!
