A Complicated Woman With Slutty Hair | Meghan McCain

Welcome back, dear listeners. You ever wonder what would happen if a 2003 Teen Vogue magazine became a person? Well, look no further!

In this episode, Ren enlightens us about Meghan McCain, conservative pundit, television personality, and did you know she was Senator John McCain’s daughter? From her 2008 campaign blog, to her “authorial abortions,” to her current position as The View’s resident chaos demon, Meghan has blazed quite a trail for someone who has an art history degree and never brings up who her father is. In the end, this woman has a more complex legacy, and sluttier hair, than you think.

Self Care Plan

Caring about other people is hard work. Let’s figure out ways to combat that compassion fatigue, otherwise we may forget to think about ourselves.

  1. Take stock of what’s on your plate. You can’t figure out how to make changes if you don’t know where the problems are. Write down a list of all the demands on your time and energy. This will help you figure out if you have too much on your plate and where to make adjustments, like taking on too much at work, or that maybe you don’t need to write another book about who your dad is.
  2. Find time for yourself every day. Do you work straight through lunch? Do you spend weekends running errands and catching up on your week without ever having 20 minutes to sit on the couch and do nothing? Figure out a way to take mini-breaks for yourself throughout the day, so you can sit, reflect, and remember that not everything is about you
  3. Learn to say no more often. Are you the person who ends up on all the committees at work? Who always volunteers when people ask? It can be draining to be the source of all help for all people. Sometimes, it’s important to remember that you can always say no. Especially to people like Meghan McCain.
