Author Peachy Keenan sits down with Bridget to discuss her first book, Domestic Extremist: A Practical Guide To Winning The Culture War. They talk about operating under a pseudonym, staying anonymous on Twitter regarding her right wing beliefs to protect her job working in Hollywood, the left wing presumption that everyone is in agreement with their views in corporate culture, how she became a social conservative after meeting her husband, having 5 children in this day and age and being looked at like she's some kind extremist for doing so. They cover parenthood, trying to be a comedy writer, why young men are having a hard time finding women who share their political beliefs, how chemistry can’t be conveyed in dating app profile, the highs and lows of marriage, the effect of divorce on children, the response to her book, why there are more people out there who agree with you than you might think, and whether or not they should start hosting dating events together.
Bridget Phetasy admires grit and authenticity. On Walk-Ins Welcome, she talks about the beautiful failures and frightening successes of her own life and the lives of her guests. She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all. By embracing it all, and celebrating it with the stories she’ll bring listeners, she believes that our lowest moments can be the building blocks for our eventual fulfillment.
