Catherine Verdon-Diamond: On Fighting Racism Together and Why #BlackLivesMatter

Welcome back to the second season of the Erica Diamond Podcast!

Last week, I had a 45-minute conversation with my friend Catherine-Verdon Diamond whom I asked to teach me. Educate me. I hope you will listen and let her teach you too. We have to be deliberate here. 

In case you’ve noticed, I took a little hiatus from recording new episodes of our show. Truth is, COVID-19 put me into such an introspective mode. I have been digging deep for my family AND for myself. COVID also sprung me into my life’s work as a wellness advocate as a life coach and yoga teacher, and I have been busy with that.

But after the killing of unarmed George Floyd, I felt totally outraged, completely horrified. I realized I have a platform, and a voice to hopefully make a difference. What is happening in our country and in my neighbors to the south, takes my breath away. 

Today is about having an honest and candid conversation between two women, a black woman and a white woman, two friends, two moms with two boys, two women in the Quebec public eye, two women who long for an inclusive society where we are all treated equally regardless of our race, or religion, or ethnicity, or sexual orientation, or gender. 

The conversation starts with you, and it starts with me.

So, let’s start it… 

Erika Kawalek: Exploring Women’s Pleasure

Welcome back to the second season of the Erica Diamond Podcast! WARNING: if you’re prudish, you might want to sit this episode out. However, if you’re not, and if you come to realize that women’s pleasure and sexuality are a part of everyday life, I think it’s definitely worth tuning in.

I grew up with Erika Kawalek and was pretty blown away by her career path since we lost touch after high school.

If you’re a follower of my work, you know that I don’t shy away from hard topics. I actually welcome them! And because this topic has become so mainstream – thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow’s new Netflix Show The GOOP LAB, and specifically “THAT episode,” that’s why this conversation is taking place. Betty Dodson and her famous Bodysex circles exist to decrease shame around our bodies and heal ourselves from previous trauma, allowing women to experience pleasure in and out of the bedroom.

Mitsou on Music, Overnight Fame, Reinvention, and Living Life on Her Own Terms

Welcome back to the second season of the Erica Diamond Podcast! This is probably one of my favorite interviews to date. Please listen to the entire episode if you can. Mitsou shares so much with us, in the most engaging and candid ways.

Mitsou was catapulted to overnight success as a teenager, and then by 22, called herself a “has-been.” She talks about the music industry, what overnight fame felt like… and then having to reinvent herself. Her struggles with an eating disorder, and aging as a media host. I have no doubt, you will fall in love with Mitsou.
