Say [Unpolishedly] Anything!

“Cancel Culture” seems to be today’s current climate if what you say aloud doesn’t conform with societal norms. While there’s a huge risk if you “Say [Unpolishedly] Anything,” Dr. Boca & Rachel Silver-Cohen aren’t afraid to speak up and tackle the tough talk. In the finale episode of Season 2, we say exactly what’s on our unpolished minds as it relates to the phenomenon of cancel culture in the hopes it won’t land us in the unpolishedly cancelled corner!

When it comes to Perimenopause, it certainly seems as if we’ve hit the unpolished “pause” button!

In this episode, Dr. Boca & Rachel Silver-Cohen break down the wreckage (and the uterine lining) on all things Perimenopause and “shed” some light on what to expect when you’re not expecting your body to transition into the next phase of womanhood!

If Seinfeld Was A Show About Nothing, Today’s Podcast Might As Well Be A Seinfeld Episode!

If Seinfeld was a show about nothing, today’s podcast might as well be an episode of Seinfeld!

Episode 15: Secrets vs. Privacy: Yes! There’s An Unpolished Difference

In a world where everyone is (over)sharing their every move perhaps because of social media, it’s no wonder good old fashioned privacy has taken a back seat!

In this episode, Dr. Boca & Rachel Silver-Cohen take a deep dive into the so-called unpolished phenomena of secrets vs. privacy.

Episode 14: When It Comes To Death, We’ve Got Unpolished Anxiety…Which Is Exactly Why We Need To Talk About It!

While the topic of death might not be the popular choice when you’re sitting around a table at a dinner party, it does lend itself to some fascinating conversations about how we deal (or don’t deal) with mortality. Talking about the inevitability of death can be both awkward and uncomfortable, because it strikes a nerve that taps right into our fears and vulnerabilities of loss. In this episode, emotions run the unpolished gamut when Dr. Boca and Rachel Silver-Cohen’s heartstrings are tugged as they share their personal stories of having lost a loved one versus the anxiety produced at even the mere notion of losing a loved one and how it’s shaped them for better or worse. This episode, much like death, is unpolishedly real and raw.

When we stop and take stock of our life, we realize with each new phase comes different roles and responsibilities.

Finding new purpose and passions through life’s twists and turns helps us to keep our minds, bodies and souls energized and fulfilled.

Episode 10: Other Than That Mrs. Lincoln, How Was The Play?

Episode 9: FriendSHIPS

It’s a compound word literally and figuratively. Some friends are here for the long haul to set sail through the ocean’s motion of life together no matter how choppy the seas get. And others, we find over time are more fair weathered; not as easily able to handle the storm of the changes encountered as we get older. Some friendSHIPS carry heavy cargo and there may come a point in the journey when it’s better served to make a choice to disembark the vessel in an effort to avoid having to scream “Mayday” because the friendSHIP is in imminent danger of sinking. Tune in as Rachel Silver-Cohen and Dr. Boca break down the FriendSHIP wreckage as they discuss which FriendSHIPS are worth salvaging and which are castaways.

Episode 8: Money Madness. It Doesn’t Solve All Your Problems, But It Certainly Helps!

Fear can be a seriously crippling and gut-wrenching emotional byproduct when facing life decisions.

Episode 6: Unpolished Etiquette

In our modern day era of “hurry up and get it done,” has traditional etiquette completely evaporated?

In today’s episode she’s hot under the collar after receiving a note that leaves her speechless. Dr. Lori Fineman legit talks her off the winding road as she breaks down the wreckage explaining there may be underlying twists and turns to the real meaning behind a note that leaves us nothing short of unpolishedly underwhelmed and how managing our expectations might help on a go forward!

Episode 5: Culture During Covid – What’s In Your Queue?

Well, one way is queuing up Netflix shows for hours on end!
