[Wild Cozy Truth 24] Being Too Much in Relationships, Career, & Family with Erin Scott


Each new year, I choose a word that guides my intentions. This process works much better for me than making resolutions. My 2018 word of the year is Flourish, and today’s essay is a short rumination on what that word means to me and how I intend to employ it this year. Then I chat with my old friend Erin Scott, a fierce feminist and advocate for women and girls in science and technology. Erin and I met within the first few days of college, thanks to choir, and ended up working together for the IT department for several years. We spend our time discussing being wild women who are often deemed as “too much.” We also touch on fun topics like toxic masculinity, highly sensitive personalities, and password protection (funnier than it sounds). As I was editing this interview, I realized that I haven’t laughed this hard on the podcast before and I even laughed out loud while editing. Strap in, because we’re going to take you for a fun ride.
