E37: Let Friends Eat Cake

Check out the latest episode of Best Forevers, focusing on Marie Antoinette and her friends, here.

 Friends are so inspiring. They inspire you to be bold, to keep on keeping on, and to try new things. In this week’s episode, Alysa is joined by her history-loving friend, Crystal, who inspired her to start covering historical friendships on Best Forevers! The first “friendship from the past” story centers on the infamous Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, and her ride or die friends, Princesse de Lamballe and Duchess de Polignac and perhaps suggests that friend influence is not always helpful or positive! So, come hear the story (and the commentary) about the legendary Queen who loved her friends dearly, but who’s extravagant and careless lifestyle inspired a revolution.

 What do you talk about in your close friendships? Everything and anything? Or, do you have hard boundaries? In this episode, Alysa describes her research focusing on sexual communication in college-aged friendships. She details how she come to study the topic, what she’s learned so far including research conducted with the support of an Early Career Grant, the importance of studying this topic, and what else we need to know about sex talk among friends.

E34: Dose & Blose

Check out the most recent episode with my dear friend, Ashleigh, here.

Now that Alysa is 40 AF, she continues to explore age and friendship by chatting with her younger, wiser, and more magical friend, Ashleigh. They revisit their friendship origin story, confirm all the things they have in common, make future plans to knock items off their bucket lists, and discuss how age ain’t nothing but a number. Come for a great chat among friends including an epic Golden Girls character discovery, and an important listener letter about friends of the same age. Basically, no matter your age, thank you for being a friend!
