What the F*ck is Actually Happening?

It has been a rough week, Warriors. Everyday we seem to wake up to another news story that seems like it belongs in a fictional movie or Margaret Atwood novel. We jumped back in the studio this week to talk about it. Sarah gives us a bit of background on the timeline surrounding women’s rights surrounding contraception and abortion. 

How do we handle these news stories that are stranger than fic...

When Jade finally shared the news on Instagram of who he really was and the damaging impact he had on her life, I wanted to find out anythin...

Teal Swan has come into the spotlight recently from a docuseries on Hulu called The Deep End; as well as from a detailed account from a reporter in his podcast series called The Gateway.  Her fringe techniques for "healing" have caused an uproar in the spiritual community due to their (dare I say) dangerous nature.  We did our own deep dive into this woman and her 'teachings' to get an idea of the message she is sen...

    This one is near and dear to my heart. For years, I lived in fear of anyone finding out my husband had Bipolar Disorder. It was the loneliest time of my life. I never want anyone else to have to travel that road alone. This is why Sarah and I do what we do, we talk about the things no one talks about to try to remove the stigma.

    We bring Dr. Stewart back for our 2nd installment of "The Unqualified Meet the Qualified." Did y...

    Wouldn't it be amazing if there was a "Magic Pill" to cure all of our mental health struggles and mental illnesses?

    Death is inevitable for all of us, for everyone we love, and for the loved ones of of our family and friends. Often when someone dies we don't know what to do. We might not know how to make arrangements or the choices available. We might struggle with the right thing to say to someone we love who is mourning a loss. Death is a complicated subject fueled with emotion. Here at the UT, we believe that information is power and in t...

    Complex PTSD is something neither one of us had heard of until one of us got the diagnosis. That can often be how it goes, but instead of being scary, it put a name to all the symptoms and emotions.

    Sarah tells her story of how she got here, a place of loss and grief piled up so high that sifting through was nearly impossible. She shares how the famous line, "It could always be worse," caused emotions to never be dealt with...
