Another Episode?!

You people simply won’t believe this. There’s another episode of “You Need Therapy!” my world renowned podcast, available for your listening pleasure! And not just another episode… a FIFTH episode that I have managed to post on the day I said I would. Yes you heard that right, a new episode comes out every Wednesday! Sure, did I post about it here on my long neglected blog on Thursday? 7:30 PST which is 10:30 EST which is practically Friday? Maybe! I guess so! It sounds just as good as it would if you knew about it Wednesday!

Welp, here’s episode 5. We talk about reality TV and motivation/procrastination.

If you’re so inclined, please subscribe to “You Need Therapy!” Another easy thing to do is rate us! A harder thing to do is comment on our podcast in iTunes. I understand you all have jobs and this is inconvenient. But understand it takes a village to raise me into a famous person. It’s v. v. important to give us stars and comments on iTunes because it pushes us up in the ratings which is what we need if this podcast is ever going to be something other than a thing that gives me false illusions that I’m being productive.

Was that too sad? Oh well! Listen to us! Ask us questions to answer on the show! 

You Need Therapy! Podcast is LIVE LIVE LIVE

YOUNEEDMy friend Shannon Amabile and I started a podcast- She’s an actual MFT and I’m a therapist like a bartender’s a therapist. We’re also comedians! The goal of the podcast is to help relieve the stigma of getting help for mental health issues both big and small. And to be famous!

We’d love to have some questions to answer on future episodes, so if you need any advice or have questions like “what personality disorder do you think Lindsay Lohan has?” (that particular question is covered, but you get the idea) you can email us at youneedtherapypodcast@gmail.com or submit anonymously at our tumblr http://youneedtherapypodcast.tumblr.com/

Please download our podcast on iTunes… subscribe, rate, review and help us get into the New and Noteworthy section so I at least have some hope of not handing out samples at Whole Foods across SoCal for the rest of my life!

NEW EPISODES EVERY WEDNESDAY! AND I PROMISE WITH THIS PODCAST IT WILL ACTUALLY BE EVERY WEDNESDAY!!!!

My New Podcast!

YOUNEED

Hello friendos.

Very soon, I’m putting out a new podcast! It’s called “You Need Therapy!” and it’s cohosted by my friend Shannon who is an MFT and a comedian. We met in UCB improv level THUH-REE so you know we must be funny because they don’t let just anybody into 301 improv. No way. Sometimes they don’t let people advance because they pose an emotional or physical threat to the other students. Not us. We made it to level 3 because the only physical threat we pose is to your funny bone.

Basically, we talk about different topics and how they relate to psychology and therapy. And sometimes we do it in (debatably) funny voices. We’re recording a bunch of episodes now so we can actually release them every week on the same day and the same time like professionals and not like the last time I had a podcast where I released them whenever I had time between Below Deck reruns and then got sick of it after two months.

So, although this is not specifically an advice podcast, we do want to take questions and answer them on the show. If you have a question relating to love, relationships of all kinds, identity, self esteem, mental health, etc. etc. etc. and you would like one qualified individual and one know-it-all to answer it on air, email us at youneedtherapypodcast@gmail.com! We can keep you anonymous if you’d like! You can also ask anonymously in my Ask Me section on this blog.

And of course, when we start releasing episodes I’ll tell you alllll about it.

Wine and Whine Podcast: Shannon Amabile

imageOn today’s episode of Wine and Whine, Kathryn and I talk to my friend Shannon Amabile, hilarious comedian and astrology extraordinaire. Listen to Kathryn and me say things like “OMG, you are SUCH a Leo” for an hour and 13 minutes, with references to Amanda Knox sprinkled in. This is our favorite episode so far and a great time was had by all. Probably because we drank sparkling rose and OJ, then stopped recording to get some 7-11 white zin to keep the party going.

You guys can listen to us on Stitcher now! It’s a cool app you can download and make podcast playlists.

Well, we had to take a week off from W&W, but now we’re back with a little shake up:

Dara is now joined by new co-host, Kathryn Gallagher!

Why did Gabi leave?

Is Dara impossible to work with?

Was she sent to live on a farm full of other podcasters she could play with?

Did Gabi decide to take a crack at a second career and is now too busy taking night classes in mortuary sciences at the local community college?

You’ll have to listen to find out!

Wine and Whine, Episode 3: Gaby Dunn

WWEp3

On today’s episode of Wine and WhineGabi and Dara drink 2 bottles of a very pricy $7 Kono Sauvignon Blanc while they whine with special guest, Gaby Dunn.

gdunnGaby is a writer and comedian, and you might’ve seen her work in the New York Times Magazine, Thought Catalogue, and Cosmopolitain or maybe you know her as the woman defending the females of Los Angeles against evil cat-callers and would-be date rapists.

We’ve been longtime fans of Gaby’s Tumblr and Twitter, but officially decided to trick her into being our friend by luring her to Dara’s apartment with free wine and pizza after seeing her in the Youtube mini-documentary, I Didn’t Come To This Open Mic To Fuck You. 

The official whine was “Women in Comedy” (Sponsored by Playtex) but we talk about everything from Gaby’s relationship with porn star (not ghost) James Deen to the perks of being bisexual to why feminism is for everyone and how we can dismantle the patriar–wait! Don’t leave!

This episode was so fun to record and we think you’ll enjoy it! Listen to it in the airport on your way home for the holiday’s and maybe you’ll be inspired by Gaby like we were to make 2014 “The Year of Enthusiasm!”

Follow Gaby with a “Y” on Twitter @gabydunn or on Tumblr at gabydunn.com

Wine and Whine: Episode 2, Mistress Mina

524749_10201170458206689_268821568_n

On our second episode of Wine and Whine we have our first guest, professional dominatrix and independent woman doing it for herself, Mistress Mina.

While we sip our wine (Cocobon and Trader Joe’s Coastal Zinfindel…we get two bottles when we have a guest) we’re going to learn about our whine, BDSM (bondage, domination, sadism, masochism), and what it really means to be a professional dominatrix.

Warning: the sound is a little iffy this episode compared to last week’s because we had to fire Producer Dave for growing a goatee. Now we’re two independent women doing a podcast for themselves. Next week should be better, as we have learned we can’t scream into microphones.

So, please, sit back, pour yourself a glass of wine and learn about the world of sissy play, dungeons, and whips. Unless you are listening to this on your morning commute, in which case please don’t drink because we can’t be liable for anyone’s DUI’s but our own.
