Episode 171 – Meg Bucaro – Women and Confidence / audio

Women's Confidence

Meg Bucaro (@MegBucaro on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss women and confidence. Craig likes to consider himself a feminist but knows full well the issues with mansplaining confidence to women. Thankfully, his friend and speaker Meg Bucaro helps Craig discuss things like why women feel the pressure to do it all, Meg and Craig’s dueling theories of “Superwoman Syndrome” and the “Myth of Should”, why “no” is such a freeing word and how Meg most certainly is NOT getting divorced and how she loves her in-laws (Sounds like a definite suck-up situation being played out on the podcast!).

Episode 144 – Michael Domitrz – Consent / audio

Consent

Michael Domitrz (@datesafeproject on Twitter) returns to discuss consent with host Craig Price. With all the news about sexual assault and consent laws in the media, Craig reaches out to  past guest Michael Domitrz to hash it out. Michael explains the importance of consent, open discussions with your partner (or potential partner) and why we need to focus not on how to avoid assault but on how to be a good human being. Meanwhile  Craig laments the fact that not enough men are speaking out on the subject while Michael offers that men should participate in the discussion but not break their arms patting themselves on the back because they do so. The two also discuss how awful internet comments can be!
