Girls Gotta Eat

Why do guys just want to f*ck you once then stalk your Instagram forever? Should you ditch the apps and meet people in the wild? How do you get over a breakup when you feel like you're gonna die? These are all topics discussed on Girls Gotta Eat -- a comedy podcast about dating, sex, and relationships co-hosted by Ashley Hesseltine and Rayna Greenberg.

Overcoming Insecurity + the #1 Tip for Relationships feat. Sahil Bloom
We are so excited to sit down with entrepreneur/speaker/overall inspirational human Sahil Bloom to talk about love, life, career, and unhinged male behavior. He shares how he spent so many years having negative self-talk and seeking external validation, and how he overcame his insecurities and found his identity. He also shares why extremes of self-help advice don’t work and his realistic “ABC system” to achieve your goals. And we talk about relationships – his #1 tip for long-lasting partnership, the secret to how he and his wife have made it work so long, why who you choose to partner with is so important, where to find the people who embody what you’re looking for, and how male insecurity is the root of all bad behavior. Before Sahil joins us, it’s a circus of storytelling – a hilarious/embarrassing incident that happened to Rayna right before recording, our new vibrator debut, power ranking of guys who have stayed with Rayna, and Ashley’s anniversary.

Embrace Your Cringe and Take Back Your Dating Power feat. Tinx
We are SO excited to be joined by Tinx to talk about box theory, reverse box theory, and a GGE exclusive – the Eating Box Theory. But there’s so much more – we’re discussing all the ways to take back your power in dating (and enjoy it more) by shifting your mindset, working the apps to your advantage, embracing your cringe, getting into your main character energy, and holding funerals when situationships end. We also discuss reinventing yourself, still lusting for an ex when you ended it, how to advocate for your own pleasure in bed, and more.

How to Stop Overvaluing People Who Undervalue You with Matthew Hussey
We are so excited to have Matthew Hussey back, fresh off the release of his amazing new book Love Life, to talk about raising your standards and finding love. He validates the stress (and often sadness) around finding a partner in the first place and why it’s hard to “just relax,” and then we discuss why you may need to fight against your own instincts when dating. Matthew breaks down how to raise your standards, recognize intention vs. attention, stop overvaluing the wrong people, and let go of “unhatched eggs.” He also opens about his marriage and how, at the beginning of the relationship, his wife lowered the stakes while raising the standard. Lastly, we discuss finding the strength to leave an unhealthy relationship. Before Matthew joins us, we’re talking about nudes, awkward customer service interactions, the plane window shade debate, and BOOTH BOYFRIENDS. Enjoy!

The Truth About Millennials with Kate Kennedy
We are so excited to have the queen of millennial musings herself, Kate Kennedy, back on the show. We discuss her new book One in a Millennial, the motivation for sharing the nostalgia and real stories behind this generation of woman, the paradox we've faced in our career paths, body image in the 90s/early aughts and its effects on us today, and how religion/purity culture can shape your sexuality to the point of confusion at best and trauma at worst. We reminisce on the mall glory days, our favorite Bath & Body Works scents, why Ashley was a fashion icon in high school, and where Rayna got her prom dresses. Kate also opens up about her indecisiveness to have children (spoiler alert: she had one), and the advice NOT to give someone struggling with this decision.  Before Kate joins us, we are revealing how long we stayed on the family plan, ranting about the pet peeve all guys do around the house, and having an important discussion about plane safety and flight attendant humor.

Stop Trying to Be a “Good” Woman feat. Author Elise Loehnen
We are kicking off the year with a very enlightening conversation with Elise Loehnen, author of the New York Times bestseller On Our Best Behavior: The Seven Deadly Sins and the Price Women Pay to Be Good. We discuss these seven “sins” and the (wrong) notion we’ve been fed that a “good woman” is not supposed to indulge them, and why it’s so much easier to damage a woman's reputation than a man’s.  We chat about embracing pride, using your envy to figure out what you want in life, owning your lustfulness, and why anger is a positive emotion. We also talk about the nonstop policing and judging of women’s bodies, why we punish ourselves for being “gluttonous,”  and how we can learn to accept our bodies. There is so much ground covered, but above all –  the importance of women supporting each other in the name of world domination. Before Elise joins us, we’re doing a quick Christmas/appetizer contest recap, sharing our goals for 2024, as well as some  from our audience, and announcing the official slogan for the year. Enjoy! Follow Elise on Instagram @eliseloehnen, check out her podcast Pulling the Thread, and get her book On Our Best Behavior.  Follow us on Instagram @girlsgottaeatpodcast, Ashley @ashhess, and Rayna @rayna.greenberg.

Nicole covers so much ground, including why we seek out relationships that feel familiar but aren’t healthy for us (and how to stop), why fear of rejection can be debilitating, and the difference between relationships that are empowered and disempowered. We dissect trauma bonding (both the power and danger of it), and also discuss how couples misinterpret each other’s behaviors (touching on love languages, but going even deeper) and how you can better understand each other instead of expecting them to change. Nicole also tells us about her throuple and the dynamics of it. Before she joins us, we catch up on Ashley’s recent altercation on a plane, Rayna’s observations about sisters, and a star-studded event we attended. Enjoy!  Follow Nicole on Instagram @the.holistic.psychologist and get her new book How to Be the Love You Seek.

Why We Fake Orgasms and How to Stop feat. Sex Therapist Vanessa Marin
We are SO excited (or rather, aroused) to do this episode about faking orgasms! We brought in sex therapist and bestselling author Vanessa Marin to chat about how many women are faking orgasms, why we do it, how to stop doing it, and how to talk to your partner if you’ve been faking for a while (or forever!). We also break down how to end the sexual experience when you don’t know how, reframing “good sex” even when there isn’t a climax, and how to mix up the order you do things in the bedroom so everyone gets off. And we even touch on men having difficulty reaching orgasm. Before Vanessa joins us, we’re catching up on Ashley meeting her boyfriend’s parents, Rayna’s awkward vibrator moment with her family, and we have a very special (official) debut from TESSA! We’re also introducing new Vibes Only products – handcuffs anyone? Enjoy!

How Much Should You Share About Your Partner to Your Friends?

We’re discussing all the things you share about your partner with friends and family, from sexual details to fights to politics to cheating. We break down the differences in what you should share/shouldn’t share, the impact oversharing can have, the types of friends you can tell certain things to, and more.

Shift Your Energy, Change Your Life feat. Alyssa Amoroso
Our good friend Alyssa Amoroso (aka Publyssity) joins us this week to spill the tea on her relationship, the trip that changed her dating trajectory, and so much more. The main theme of the episode is how shifting your energy can lead to big changes in your life, and we discuss her current relationship from how they met (she offers some insightful dating app advice) to the recent “DTR” to how people treat her now that she’s coupled up (and the mixed feelings she has on it). We also chat about her move to LA, why she got rid of her therapist (and the positive impact it had), and making the decision to stop letting insecurities hold you back. Before Alyssa joins us, we’re sharing some Thanksgiving Eve hookup stories; Ashley has a big life/body update, and we’re now taking dating applications for Rayna. Enjoy!

Understanding (and Healing) Your Original Wounds with Therapist Vienna Pharaon
We’re so happy to welcome back marriage and family therapist Vienna Pharaon to talk about healing work and the five original wounds. She shares her own personal story of her parents’ (nine year long) divorce and how she didn’t think it affected her until later in life when she was ready to process and work through it. Then she walks us through how to pinpoint and understand your original wounds and how they are affecting you today, and gives steps for how to heal and stop holding yourself back from healthy relationships. We also discuss how red flags can be a positive thing, the unhealthy side of choosing partners who put you on a pedestal, and why breakups don’t equal failure. Before Vienna joins us, we have a debut cameo from Sparkle Eyes. Enjoy! Follow Vienna on Instagram @mindfulmft, check out her podcast This Keeps Happening, and get her book The Origins of You.

Have We Overcorrected When It Comes to Dating?
With all the dating advice/rules/list/etc taking over our online landscape, we couldn’t help but wonder…have we gone too far? We’re so excited to cover the concept of overcorrecting when it comes to dating, inspired by the viral list “Places Women Refuse to Go On a First Date” (we have a lot to say!) and from all the content we see and consume every day. We discuss how some of the information out there could actually be harming your dating life and possibility of finding love, but how you can filter it and make it work for you. Before we get into the topic, we talk about guys on bikes (ick or not?), Rayna's comical texting with her mom about Thanksgiving, something that killed the mood for Ashley like never before, the show Naked Attraction, AND our new Vibes Only products (including a vibrator that will give you the best orgasm of your life).

When Nudes Go Wrong
If you’ve ever experienced the nightmare of sending a nude to the wrong person (or just have the fear inside of you), you’re not alone. We’re chatting all about nudes gone wrong – sending to the wrong person (family included), uploading to social media, accidental airdrops, and more. We’re also giving tips on how to avoid these incidents, and on the other (aka toxic) side, purposely using the “oops wrong person” as a power play in a situationship. Before we go full send on nudes, we’re talking about our multiple Halloween costumes and unpacking a shocking birthday cake incident. Enjoy!

Glowing Up and Growing Up with Andrew Collin
We have the hilarious and beloved Andrew Collin back in studio for another banger. We’re talking about glowing up later in life, self-confidence, moving across the country and going through transitional (and often tough) times with your partner, and the fights you get in when you live with someone (especially about food). We’re also talking about the journey from being a binge drinker to a  moderate drinker and sharing crazy drunk stories from our past. Before he joins us, we catch up on Rayna meeting a guy on a plane, an accidental/embarrassing message Ashley sent to her bf, and comparing current relationships to past ones. Enjoy!
