Say a Little Prayer for Nicki

This week I am talking about religion and why it's such a big deal.  We as adult people are old enough to make up our own minds about who and when we believe in God so why is religion still such a big deal in 2019?  Also look up the Netflix Docuseries The Family!

I would like to give special thanks to everyone on replied to my Twitter question, "Why do you think people need religions?"

Nicki is Always Improving

This week I am going back to an episode from a few months ago called Nicki Just Wants to be a Good Ally. I am not really fixing, but adding to the conversation of misogyny in Queer Culture.  When I did that first episode I didn't understand what a big issue it is to be femme or embracing your female nature is to queer persons and why for years and even to some point now feminine attributes have been expected to be hidden from others. But, nothing I say can truly be even close to what it's like to have to live this way, so I asked for some help!

Here are the nice gentlemen who answered my DMs and headed up this episode for me.  With out their help I would not have been able to pull this episode off!

Adam (thank you for always answering when called upon)

Nicki is Just Ok for School.

This week I am talking about high school.  There is a lot that happens in those four years and some of those events stick with us for the rest of our lives.  I think maybe it's time to work through that!  Now that I am a mother of a high school student I see that this time in our lives is major to our development as adults so maybe we need to hit on what we do with all that now that we are grown ass people.

Big thanks for Adam for being in my DMs this week.  I know that a lot of people wanted to be in this episode, but I really thought after I told my story about high school that I needed you to understand it wasn't just me that went through that kind of bullying.  There were a lot of us.

There's always other episodes to be involved in my DMs!  Just keep an eye out I am always looking for people for specific episodes!

Nicki’s Just Trying to Have a Fun Time Part 1

This week I'm talking about fun the subject that was picked by Twitter!  In this first part I talk about the things that I did with my family to find fun and what happened.  And, I talk about how I realized that fun for adults is very hard to find when you can't really relax and be carefree.  There are a lot of questions I still have about having fun and I'm still looking for all the answers.  I hope by the time we get into part 2 I will have some of it figured out!

 

Special thanks to Brenda, and Emily for their answers for what's in my DM's

also thank you too

Nicki Wants you to Sit Back Relax and EnJoy

This week I am talk about Joy.  While I have been out looking for fun for a two part episode coming up in July I found something even better something that I wish I had found years ago.  And, that's joy.  I discovered that my need to find fun doesn't always have to end in fun some time it can just lead to finding joy in the situation where I am in the moment.

Being that this episode is being released on the fourth of July I am sure that a lot of people are going to start their day thinking they are looking for a lot of fun and find themselves disappointed but if you relax and just enjoy your time with friends your experience might be a lot different.

This week we did our DM's a lot different I posted the question what gives you joy online and I waited for the answers and then talked about what was posted.  The reason being I thought that if I got the conversation going it could lead to other people looking for joy in new places.  It could also lead to some positive talk on social media and I always think that's a bonus.

Nicki Needs an Adult is Turning one

Well, can you believe!? Nicki Needs an Adult is having her one year anniversary!!! In this week's episode I will be talking about what I have learned about podcasting in the past year and what I still want to accomplish with this show.  I will talk about things that I'm glad I changed and things that I want to bring back.

I talk a lot about old episodes that I want to re due and some that I loved. And, you can find them all right here on the website for this show https://nickineedsanadult.podbean.com/

I also talk about shows that I want to do in the future and I get into some real talk about what I need to do to accomplish that.  I talk about the Adult Piggy Bank that's now on Venmo.  Just look for Nickineedsanadult.  It's the best way that I can think of getting more interesting episodes with out ruining the quality of the show with ads.

 

I also just want to say thank you to everyone that ever listened to this show even if it was just one episode because that's how I knew that I was headed in the right direction.  I also want to thank everyone in the Podcast Community that have stuck by me and have given an ear when I needed one.

And, lastly don't be afraid to rate the show or leave comments that's how I know that what I'm talking about is interesting to someone else besides me.  hahah.

 

Now, all that being said if you want to be in a segment or contact me about being a part of a show, or you just want to follow me here's how.

Nicki Wants to Dial You Up While you WIFI (it’s not porn)

This we I am talking about the Internet.  Is it really that bad and truly ruining our country?  I will tell you where this all started for me and how I came up with the real answer to this question.  And, trust me I see where talking about the evils of the internet while on a podcast you can only get from the internet seems hypocritical.

In the Episode I reference a few things.  1st  The Beat Down Season 6 Episodes 2 and 3 click here https://youtu.be/FcZrkh96Nt8 and here https://youtu.be/mHXjmTecXFg

And, I mention a conversation I had with Light the Fright Podcast find them on Twitter @LighttheFright

I always talk about Thanks for Coming @TFCPod

 

Don't forget that next week I will be doing my year review because it's Nicki Needs an Adult's birthday!

Nicki Just Wants to be a Good Ally

This week I am talking about appropriation of queer culture and misogyny in queer culture.  And, let me tell you it gets MESSY! This is just one of those things that has no one right answer and nothing is clean cut.  But, what I will say is there needs to be more truth and lessons taught about what the LGBTQ+ community as brought to us as a nation and there needs to be a talk about how we should act when we are invited into their safe spaces.

 

In this episode I talk about Ryan White if you honestly do not know who this is please start here https://ryanwhite.com/

I also have a lot of people in my DM's

Thanks first to Seth from the podcast Thanks For Coming (@tfcpod) he is the one that helped me when I was debating with myself about doing this episode and was the one who encouraged me to do it.  Seth thank you and I am so grateful.  You can hear from Seth, Jamal and Stony every Monday on Thanks For Coming the Podcast that not only talks about Drag Race but also openly discusses life in the LBGTQ+.  Jamal's DM is in my episode on Black History and I am on their show recapping Season 11's Monster Ball Episode.

 

I also here from Trisha (@Pkittytrisha)  Trisha is a sister of Perpetual Indulgence, and has worked very hard over the years to be an Ally to all people in the queer community if you want to learn more about the sisters please look here. https://www.thesisters.org/

 

I would also like to thank Rachael, and Holly for helping me out and giving me their opinions in my DM's.  And, last but not least Adam.  He is a very special person in my life and I am happy that he wanted to help this week.

This episode once again was not easy to make because I had to be really honest with myself about what I have done that could have been part of this problem, but we do not grow as people if we are not honest about what we have done to others in our pasts.

 

Please feel free to comment and get with me about how you feel about this episode, or about what you think I said that was wrong or right.  I want to be and do better and I am willing to listen so that I can do that. 

 

If you have a podcast and you would like to be mentioned in the break please send me a message!

 

Also if you want to hear more new stuff from me look up my episode on the Rob and Slim Show (@RobandSlimshow) last week!
