Welcome back to BeREAL! To close off 2020, Diana and Ednesha are interviewed by BeREAL producer Don to discuss the year in review.
To begin the year in review, Don takes Diana and Ednesha back to the creation of BeREAL. Ednesha goes over her initial feelings towards the podcast back in March and how she believed she would only be a part-time host. Now, a year later, she is the full time co-host alongside Diana. Diana talks about her initial vision of the podcast: that it would be a podcast with honest conversations about mental health in order to break stigmas. Both hosts believe they have accomplished this goal and look forward to furthering this work in 2021.
Next, Don asks Ednesha about her relationship with Diana and how it has grown over the year. Ednesha explains how Diana is her supervisor as a therapist, but that does not mean they are not equals. Ednesha talks about how it took some time for her to realize that, and at the start of the podcast she kept looking to Diana for validation. However, now she understands that they are on the same level and BeREAL is as much Diana’s podcast as it is her own.
Finally, Don asks the hosts about their favorite episodes from this year. Diana says that her favorites are when Alex Elle came to discuss self care and Sean Grover came to discuss online therapy. Ednesha says that her favorite has been Andrea Dresser’s episode on sex therapy. Don finished out the episode by giving his personal favorite episode which was with Josh Palau and Darren W. Carter on fatherhood.
