Cait Flanders: Purposeful Healing & Romancing Yourself

How do you heal on purpose? What might help to bring you back to yourself after a life-changingly hard experience? Cait Flanders (she/her) joins us to talk about healing. More specifically, she shares what the past 2.5 years have been like while healing from a sex-related trauma. (So yes, this is a gentle content warning for you about the conversation ahead, but know that Cait does not go into any detail at all about the experience, and instead this is a beautifully honest and thoughtful accounting of what helped to bring her back to herself as well as what she wants from dating and sex now that she is open to those things again.) She shares about therapy, about how the commitment to no longer accepting harmful treatment in one relationship wound up changing pretty much all of her relationships, why she bought herself all new sex toys, how she is romancing herself, and more. You can find Cait at caitflanders.com and on IG @caitflanders ** The Pop-Up Pod is 100% listener-supported via our sliding scale Patreon (thanks, ya'll!) which ensures that everyone involved in the show's creation & production gets paid (host, sound engineer, transcriptionist, and all guests!)  [Full transcript of this episode is available here] ...

Trailer: The Pop-Up Pod with Nicole Antoinette

Welcome to The Pop-Up Pod: a new podcast that’s similar to a pop-up shop or a pop-up restaurant in that it’s sporadic— sometimes it’s here, and sometimes it’s not! When a new season does air, it will feature 12-episode explorations of life's most common & interesting questions. Our question for season 1 is this: Should I Get Married? Join host Nicole Antoinette and her guests as they explore love, sex, and money, cohabitation, partnership without self-abandonment, monogamy and non-monogamy, growing together versus growing apart, the privileges, oppressions, traditions, and expectations of marriage, and so much more — all with honesty & curiosity, in the hopes that we can learn from each other while also being reminded that we are never alone. ** This show is 100% listener-supported on Patreon, which ensures that everyone is paid (host, sound engineer, transcriptionist, and guests!)  [Transcript of this episode available here] ...
