fears in relationships – Friendship Plus Podcast
In the podcast episode “Relationship Anxiety,” moderators Corinna and Christin discuss the facets of fear. What fears are there? Are there different fears at the beginning of a relationship than in the middle? They philosophize about the fact that fears often only exist in our head at the moment we feel them and are not yet real in the real world of relationships. And probably never will. In any case, it is very entertaining when the two start chatting from their own experience or give advice for books or scientific studies on the subject.
The podcast offers elements of love for participation and a lot of good humor.
About the podcast: Corinna Theil was a frantic reporter for Sat.1 in Bavaria for years. Christin Balogh is an actress and presenter. Among other things, you could see her in “Bergdoktor” or “Love Storm”. What unites the two women is a 15-year friendship and the “Freundschaft Plus” podcast on Bayern 3.

The pink gloves debate – SWR2 culture talk
Freelance journalist and author Rebecca Endler is a guest on the April 14 episode of the podcast to talk about the Pinky Gloves. Behind the name is a supposedly innovative product, namely a menstrual glove. With this product, women and menstruating people should be able to hygienically remove their tampon and then use the glove as a garbage bag. The product was featured by a start-up company on the TV show “Die Höhle der Löwen” and triggered a huge shit storm. Endler explains why the product doesn’t really make any sense from her point of view and what misogyny still lurks behind the “Pinky Gloves.” She finds – we discover “Patriarchy of Things”. When he later claims that men’s pajamas often have pockets for pants, but women’s don’t, although women might as well put a tampon in there, one is sobering.
This short but sharp podcast is engaging, academic, and very easy to listen to. Gives great information if you are interested in period embarrassment and its background.
Oh right: the manufacturers have since withdrawn the “pinky gloves” product.
About the podcast: In SWR’s cultural talk, topics related to literature, art, music and much more are presented in a very compact length podcast; usually with very exciting guests.
