This week we're talking all things quarantine: is it okay to cry in front of your kids, should we be sticking to our routines, and do we really need to be using this time in a productive way? Also, Brene Brown is overrated. Enjoy!

Coping With Coronavirus

This week, we're talking about just how different daily life is from just one week ago, tossing around a few ideas about how we're coping through all of this, and sharing some inspiring anecdotes about some unique ways people are helping. 

This week we're joined by our good friend Bela Gandhi, dating coach extraordinaire, to talk about The Bachelor and some of the negative ideas about gender it might be perpetuating. 

This week's On Purpose is a natural, zesty enterprise where we touch on the Super Tuesday aftermath, Coronavirus, author Rebecca Makkai taking to Twitter to console people's deepest worries, this year's Zen Parenting Conference, and things that anchor us in crazy times.

Threads On The Campaign Trail

Hillary Clinton retweeted Heidi! I REPEAT...Hillary Clinton retweeted Heidi!

We'll also get around to discussing the ins and outs and what-have-yous of women's fashion on the campaign trail, the most recent Democratic debate, the verdict in the Harvey Weinstein trial, and more!

On Loosening Gender Norms

Breaking news! A new study shows that same-sex marriages tend to be happier than traditional ones. So this week, we're breaking that down and diving into what you can learn and considering what we all can learn about relationships by loosening gender norms and stereotypes. 

J-Lo & Shakira sang a few songs on TV this week, and it was so controversial that they had to put half a football game before and after it. But was it really that big of a deal? 

This week, we're talking about how creating in-jokes is an absolute must for keeping your relationships fresh, fun, and alive. A good in-joke also has the power to craft resilience in a relationship over time, and just make the harder stuff a little less hard. Also, an in-depth review of Gwyneth Paltrow's new $70 vagina candle. 

In this week's episode, Heidi shares some surprising insights from her chat with Peggy Orensetein, author of the new book, "Boys & Sex." Also, in the fallout of the most recent presidential debate during which Bernie Sanders questioned whether or not a woman could actually get elected president, we ponder that very thought.
