You Need To Be Listening To 'Sluts & Scholars'

Being the huge podcast fan that I am, I tend to go through them rather quickly. While on the search for a new podcast I stumbled upon one called Sluts & Scholars. I had to listen because with a name like that I HAD to see what it was and I was not disappointed.

As hosts Nicoletta and Simone put it, they help make your sex smarter and your smarts sexier. Their podcast plays host to countless amazing (as they say) slutty scholars ranging from high ranking public officials to actresses, to porn stars.

The issues and topics that are discussed never cease to surprise me and I promise you will never be bored. Nicoletta and Simone help create a safe atmosphere for their guests and listeners to be welcomed into a sex-positive, shame-free place.

Now, you might be asking yourself, is this podcast just going to be talking about sex for an hour? No, it is so much more than that. The hosts make sure that this is an educational atmosphere as well by helping explain things to their audience that they might be too afraid to Google for themselves.

The women of Sluts & Scholars help normalize the conversations around sex and bring it into a regular conversation instead of making sex a dirty word.

When I first found this, as someone who counts herself as a more traditional woman who 100% does not talk casually about sex, I was unsure about what I was going to find or get out of this.

I went in not totally expecting what to find and I fell in love. This podcast helped open and expand my narrow mind and helped changed how I viewed sex and how we talk about it. I also learned a little bit more about having true girl power through not only the hosts but their guests as well.

All of the guests that Nicoletta and Simone have are all strong and amazing women and you get to learn so much from each and every one of them because it seems as though no question is off limits. Each guest is so open to all of their questions and is all about helping educate and expanding the minds of the listeners.

In case their star-studded guest list isn't enough for you to think they are super credible, Nicoletta is a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate and a nearly certified Sexologist and Simone is going into law school to focus on reproductive health laws. These girls are smart, educated, and passionate about their field and it really shows in their works.

Sluts & Scholars has kept me company on so many road trips and has helped me learn so much about myself and has also helped open my eyes to the world around me. I have learned so much while listening to this show and I think that this podcast is a necessity for everyone.

While it is more geared towards women, it speaks to so many new levels and audiences. It touches tough topics like reproductive health, porn and the porn industry, LGBT issues, transgender people, and so much more. Sluts & Scholars has helped me learn more about the ever-changing world around me and did it in a way that I can understand since this is a podcast made by young women for young women.

Listen on Spotify or look online to find other places to listen. It's worth it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
