[Wild Cozy Truth 39] Feminist Life Coaches Unite with Mariah MacCarthy


Why are you seeing this on Thursday instead of Wednesday? It’s a new publishing schedule! I discuss the impetus of this change in today’s essay, Grappling with Growth.
What better way to celebrate the importance of community and collaboration and eschew competition by shining my spotlight on fellow feminist life coach Mariah MacCarthy? In this episode, we chat about a feminist approach to life coaching and what that means for each of us. Mariah teaches me a new word–kyriarchy–which basically refers to all the hegemonic bullshit that upholds systems of oppression. Then we dive headfirst into their queer and non-binary identity, the use of “they/them” pronouns, and we finally end up with their unusual path to motherhood. Mariah is a birthmom to a five year old and bravely tells their story about accidental pregnancy, the financial reasons for adoption, and queering motherhood.
Mariah is a badass and I think you’re going to love this episode.
