009: Identity

On this week’s episode, Maria and Anna discuss the complex topic of identity. They share what terms and phrases they use to identify themselves, and delve into the ideas of self-image, having multiple or conflicting identities, and how others’ perceptions of us affect our identities. How do stereotypes play in with identity? Do we need to be sure of our identity or identities? Can our identities evolve? Should they evolve? The cousins offer possible (and maybe somewhat questionable) answers to all these questions. Some fun tidbits from this episode include thoughts on Kesha’s awesomeness, analysis of the phrase “be yourself,” and the sentiment that we all should strive to be juicy, ripe peaches. (Trust us on this one.)

This week's quote:
“As I leave this Earth and sail into the infinite cosmic universe, the wars, the triumphs, the beauty, and the bloodshed, the ocean of human endeavor, it all grows quiet, insignificant. I'm nothing more than recycled stardust and borrowed energy, born from a rock, spinning in the aether. I watch my life backwards and forwards and I feel free. Nothing is real, love is everything, and I know nothing.” - Kesha

Bonus quote:
“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be someone who hates peaches.” - Dita Von Teese (or, as the Cheesebeast says, the "ripest, joopiest peach")
