Our Unusual Ef’Pod is back, with a new format but the same shenanigans and technical difficulties! Kirsten and Jessie introduce the new Effortistas who have contributed interesting and exciting articles to Unusual Efforts’ new calendar year, and explain the changes readers and listeners have in store. We also caught each other up on our respective teams and favorite players…and a certain Mohawk-ed elephant in the room.
Our dynamic duo then rounded up the responses to Sonja’s twitter question: if listeners could choose one coach, past or present, as a therapist, whom would they pick? Our EfforTweeters chose some great managers- and had fascinating reasons behind their picks. Our therapeutic conversation led to a frank and necessary discussion about mental health, the loneliness and struggles of anxiety and depression, and the benefits of the Unusual Efforts community, where self-care is top priority, and no one has to explain needing a mental health break.
As always, stick around to end for drink recommendations from your hosts!
