Howdy friends, this week in our Race, Racism, and Mental Health series, we are highlighting another creator of color we love: Gia Goodrich. Gia had us on her podcast, The Bold Bitch Podcast, back in June when we were on hiatus. We had a beautiful time being on the other end of the interview hot seat and we think you'll enjoy it too. We will be back to our regular programing next week with the last guest of our current series. We love ya! Take care of yourselves and listen/follow/subscribe to us and The Bold Bitch xx
"EP024 with Shawny & Jerms of The QBT Podcast. You will laugh and cry and love us for it with this episode. We bounce all over the place from popular culture, to mental health and the stories that keep us stuck, to queer fabulosity, and creating something from nothing.
These two are going to be your new obsession. Their ability to balance humor with depth is delightful and refreshing AF.

Cultural critique and being opinionated
Problematic movies of the past
Identifying and unlearning our childhood stories
Approaching what you don't know with curiosity (it's harder than you think)
The new model of mental health
Being empathetic vs. Absorbing energy
Launching a podcast in a pandemic
Growing over time and knowing the beginning will be totally embarrassing
Why people crave vulnerability

More About The Show: In the BOLD BITCH Podcast we dive deep into taboo topics. Each week award-winning creative powerhouse and compulsively curious host Gia Goodrich talks to badass visionaries and brazen game-changers with bold visions and strong opinions. Diving below the surface of subjects we're socialized not to talk about, we learn, lift the veil, and shift perspectives on the lightning rod issues impacting us every day. It might ruffle a few feathers, but it takes honesty to inspire change and remind us that the boldest version of ourselves is exactly what the world needs."
