Do they mean your like your comedy stylings no like me? You're wow. I don't think you'll vain and shallow. I think you as a woman of great depth and a lot of self awareness. I know that's great but the other one. Just sound so much more sexy. Yeah sounds fun now. I see that I see that. I'm a feminist but I love that people call a vodka soda with a dash of cranberry the guilty feminist cocktail. Even though it used to be called a rose Kennedy. I have taken another woman drink. But she was super rich and I'm not sure she was very nice. Some good with it. Jfk's mom she had many children but most of them seem to be men who cheated on him. So I'm fine with it. I think all of the men that she had she decided she you decide. That's father Shay Med. She had a daughter that had a lobotomy. Oh my God yeah. It's dark that's a sad story. Yeah Yeah I'm a feminist but I've been very anxious about my teenage daughters social life since seeing her birthday. Wish list was only books honestly. I was like who is this child. What's happened to her? Then I was like drugs. Do you think my husband was like. Why would you think that I'm like she doesn't want makeup similar Claude? What's wrong with her? But I worry I mean you're a teenager like but anyway she's a good kid but still. I am a feminist wearing all black and polls because it makes me feel like Chanel. Like Coco Chanel. But then I have to remind myself she was a Nazi sympathizer and not want to look like her. But then I have to push that out of my mind so we can enjoy the black dress in the polls i. I'd like to be able to carry off like a big flower like chest flour when she used to wear like a black outbreak. Gardenia. I'd like to be able to pull off an oversized one. I don't think I am a feminist but when people find out I've been married twenty two years and they try and do the math to figure out how old I am I always say. Don't bother child bride. It happens a lot where I'm from. So they're like okay. I'm a feminist if if Pretty Patel lost her job and her cat away and she went to boot to spend boot points and they said Oh sorry these have expired and she went to parties to use her sixth session and they said Oh.

We're not gonNA put anymore because we're just about to close the door. And then she went home and she lost her the key to her house and the people inside were asleep and she was like oh they couldn't hear her or they probably pretended they couldn't yeah don't realize living with her that much and then had to go and sleep on a bench and then in the morning she woke up and she remembered that she didn't have a job and she felt super super bombed out and then she went back to boots with the cart.

"My guest has been psychiatrist, Dr Kelly, Brogan. She is author of the book a mind of your own, and there's a link to her book at Amazon in the show notes per share you being here Dr. Thank you. Even if you don't wear Chanel, perfume, the perfume you do wear was at least partially inspired by Chanel. Let me explain Chanel number five is the most famous and popular perfume of all time yet. It has such an odd name, why? Well, when Coco Chanel introduced it in nineteen twenty one, it changed the perfume industry forever up until then perfumes were extracted from flowers and smelled very flowery. But Chanel wanted something that evoked more femininity than flowery. So she hired a chemist who presented her with several different concoctions. They were numbered one through five and twenty through twenty four at first Coco Chanel liked number twenty two and offered it for sale. Chanel, twenty two is still available today, but. CoCo eventually decided that number five was the real winner. And she saw no reason to change the name Chanel. Number five is a very complicated formula with approximately eighty ingredients, and that formula is known only to a handful of people because of the success of Chanel. Number five, perfume Coco Chanel always presented her new clothing collections every year on February fifth and August fifth, and that is something you should know if you enjoy this podcast, please take a moment and share it with someone. You know if everybody did that, we, we double our audience that may maybe a bit optimistic, but, but help me try. I'm Mike Carruthers. Thanks for listening today to something you should know..
