SISTERS: But Beautiful
Kaitlin and Natalie try to create boundaries for the first time in their lifelong relationship. They work to navigate their relationship together and separately. As they embark on creating the final episode of this series, they realize they are having fun again.
SISTERS: What's Wrong-isode
We go back in time to before Kaitlin hired Natalie. She brings us inside of her uncertain world, and her journey to figure out what is wrong. TRIGGER WARNING: suicidal ideation, reference to childhood and sexual trauma (no depictions), borderline personality disorder
It’s the pandemic, and KP hires her younger sister to work at her company. As an assistant producer. Natalie is having flashbacks to their youth, when she performed as the butler at Kaitlin’s dinner parties. Is this the new version of the butler role? As they set out to make art together, attempting to do it in a way that doesn’t reinforce old childhood patterns Natalie finally sees who Kaitlin is on a day to day basis. TW: suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, alcohol.
Natalie and Kaitlin go into their 20s living separate and faraway lives. Kaitlin comes home from New York for christmas every year, and they hug and talk into the night, falling asleep spooning like they did when they were little girls. Kaitlin makes a grand gesture and buys tickets to go on a special sister adventure: to the Jem and Holograms Convention. What ends up happening at the convention is something neither of them saw coming.
SISTERS: Chapter One-isode
Kaitlin was Daddy’s little girl. And then: Natalie was born. The older and the younger sister: competing for attention, being bossed around, borrowing clothes, getting in petty fights and loving each other anyway. As little girls Kaitlin and Natalie fought because they were too similar. As teenagers Kaitlin and Natalie fought because they were total opposites. What does their adult future hold? Will they be friends or a family obligation? TW: Light reference to abusive parental behaviour. No mentions of physical violence. For resources on parental child abuse go to theheartradio.org/sisters

God + The Gays
Growing up, Phoebe was a Jesus kid. In college, after Tinder-swiping her way to gayness, she comes out to Christians and hopes that they’ll accept her. In this episode, Phoebe goes on a mission to find out how people with fundamentally different beliefs, can be friends.
There is a way that these narratives are supposed to go. But life isn’t simple and linear, it’s messy and loud, and everything keeps coming back again and again and again. This piece by Dylan Gauche won the Best Student award at the 2017 Hearsay International Audio Festival. [Trigger Warning]
Being a queer or trans person of color is hard anywhere, but can feel especially isolating if you’re living in Seattle, WA. A heavily fractured city that is undergoing massive gentrification. Darqness, an electronic music collective, is working to dismantle that and bring QTPOC together. Producer Ellie Lightfoot, a Seattle native, spent the last year with this seven person crew to find out why these parties are so necessary.
Maria is a poet and activist living in Houston, Texas who Mitra spent a few days with. Mitra got to meet some of Maria’s family, hung out with her pets and ate delicious food during her time with Maria. For Maria’s whole life all she has wanted was breasts. Big breasts to be specific. This story follows the poet, Maria from childhood to adolescence to womanhood. In this piece you heard poetry from book Poetic Confessions Vol 1 and more. To learn more about Maria’s work you can check out her website. Maria is also the co-founder of The National Women with Disabilities Empowerment Forum.
For years, Cassie has been plagued with an itch in her butt. The itch has travelled with her across the country, from one apartment to the next and transcended all of her major relationships. Cassie talks to past and present partners to see what they think she is up to when she is scratchin’ her bum late at night.
I love this episode ❤️
YOOOOOO. . . what in the XXX-Rated HELL did I just listen to, yall❓⁉️ Like. . woah.
Really not worth the time to listen to this.
I hope her sister inherits the house.
My politics lie pretty perpendicular to Phoebe’s but I’m listening to this with an open mind to see if I can learn anything. But good lord, she is exhausting to listen to. She’s just so full of herself.
her girlfriend says in this podcast that in her mind white people should never feel comfortable, wow! am I crazy but wouldn't it be nice if everyone was comfortable shouldn't we work towards that?
Actually, Phoebe's ex-partner sounds more like an abuser to me. She's clearly taking advantage of being 7 years older. The discussed issues seem to be more about the age / maturity gap and not about race.
This series focuses on a woman’s experiences with unsuccesful rejections, and offers a patchwork of answers to two main questions: Why is it so hard to say ’no’ to a sexual advance and why is it so hard for some people to respect. The audio is delightfully varied, and includes excerpts from the woman's - Kaitlin's - teen diary, interviews with her friends, ex-boyfriends and parents, messages from listeners, a terrible Elvis song called 'Don't', a really clever sex therapist, and a re-enactment of one of the assaults she’s experienced as well as a tape recording of another. Due to the topic alone, the podcast can be uncomfortable to hear at times, but the result is a deeply reflected and universally relevant story about personal boundaries and integrity.
