About This List

This is the *Awkward Conversations* podcast playlist, curated by Courtney Kocak for EarBuds Podcast Collective.
  1. Reema tries to settle a debt she’s been avoiding. And what happens when one person in a relationship has way more money?
  2. April reads a news story and everything changes. 
  3. For the 7th episode of Private Parts Unknown, your hosts Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra are back with the 2nd installment in our 3-part series featuring men talking about their personal experiences with abortion. For this edition, we're joined by two guys — first, former youth pastor/current standup comedian Derrick Murray (@drokcomedy) & then filmmaker/writer/VR extraordinaire Christopher Morrison (@Reality_Plus_) — who exemplify how subtle religious indoctrination can manifest in surprising ways as the shame & stigma surrounding the issue are processed. As you learned in the last episode, Matt Monroe's Instagram post made us realize how rare it is to see men we know speak publicly about their abortions. Busy Philipps started the viral hashtag #YouKnowMe & a flood of women shared their experiences. But obviously #YouKnowHim too. So we flipped the script & asked dudes to shout their abortions for this 3-part series. Many thanks to the five men who shared their nuanced stories with a humility & vulnerability so often missing from this hot button issue. People in Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, and Louisiana need our help. Please consider a donation to,,, or any other reputable organization engaged in this fight for reproductive justice. If you know someone who you think would benefit from hearing this, please share!
