The Sugar Free Podcast

The Sugar Free Podcast

The Sugar Free Podcast is a place where Millenial women gather to exchange real-life advice through raw, honest, unfiltered (sugar free) conversations. Because let’s face it, adulting is way harder than it looks on television and we could all use a little help figuring this thing out. Each episode, show host, Sydnee Mack, explores a variety of topics that are important to Millennial women from careers, to dating, starting families (or not) , financial security and mental health. Each topic is covered through interviews with dynamic guests who are experts in their fields by way of education, scholarship, work experience and/or lived experience. Each guest offers actionable advice, tools, resources and strategies to help Millenial women create the lives that they want verses the lives that were crafted for us by our parents, haters and society. Show host, Sydnee Mack, Esq., is a Millennial lawyer, professor, entrepreneur, best-selling author and woman who uses her knowledge and experience to lead entertaining conversations with vulnerability, curiosity, compassion and humor (lots of it).

When is the last time you prayed?

American adults are connecting less and less with religion and by extension the Church. For those interested in seeking both, how do you na...

If you’re dating in 2023, chances are you are leveraging the internet or some manner of technology to date people outside of your “safety bubble.” Meaning, you are dating people that neither you nor anyone you know can vouch for or verify the background, history or character of your potential dates.

Inflation remains high and talks of recession still linger; but the job market remains strong and life for the most part unchanged. Are we headed for financial disaster or is everything cruising along just fine?

According to research, men orgasm three times as much as women during heterosexual partnered sex. In terms of percentage, roughly 91% of men verses 39% of women report that they “usually” or “always” reach orgasm as a result of  heterosexual intercourse. This data represents the “orgasm gap.” Well ladies, it’s 2022 and it’s time we take back our power, own our sexual pleasure and close the gap.
