Vulnerabilities with Devon Vox

Vulnerability with a comedic undertone. Join us as we discuss a thought- provoking video each week going over various things like implications of our actions on others, unorthodox ways to test your emotional empathy, ways to hold yourself (and others) accountable, and tons of laughter accompanied by some surprisingly dark humor.

Welcome to another episode of Vulnerabilities with Devon Vox, thank you for being vulnerable with us! We have a very special episode today as we continue in our reaction based deep discussions:
 
The 1st video is for the dog owners that come back home only to be further interrogated by your dog about your activities. YOU BEEN WHERE?! WITH WHO?! Seriously if dogs could make videos this is what they would look and sound like. If you’ve ever gone out without your dog and they yell at you when you come back this video and discussions for you.
 
The 2nd video pains me to have to talk about but here we are. People who are complimenting you in public are not always trying to hit on you. Sometimes they actually want you to feel good about yourself with no other intentions. I get it. Negativity is far easier to perceive and talk about. The world is a dangerous and dark place right now. But seeing each other in the best light possible is the only way to allow the person in this video to authentically show up as their SELF. Instead of having to have that voice in his back pocket, I hope we can start talking to each other like this more often in a candid fashion.
 
The 3rd video is done by one of my favorite creators in the game right now. As the creator of the Do the Work Podcast Sabrina Zohar is stepping into the forefront of harmful dating norms, self regulation, and vulnerability. She gives a rundown on how harmful not taking accountability is, when you may be the red flag yourself, and do’s/don’ts of dating if you care about effecting the world around you. This incurred a deep dive addressing topics like misogynistic history, why dating is so hard right now, and why women don’t get as much flack for pushing negativity compared to men.

Welcome to another episode of Vulnerabilities with Devon Vox, thank you for being vulnerable with us! We have a very special episode today as we continue in our reaction based deep discussions:
The 1st video is about the fatherless olives you’ve been enjoying against your parents wishes. The jail ridden olives, the ones paying child support, the ones you told your boyfriend not to worry about…WE WANT THOSE OLIVES. Apparently Sae is the resident olive lover on the pod so send them to her and be ready to have your potatoes mashed by Wixx the greatest scrambled egg maker on the planet.
The 2nd video is for the smokers out there that hold it together by peaceful meditation accompanied by some coughing. We hear you, we see you, and we support you baddies. But seriously though, it would be crazy if everyone stopped to take a puff amirite?
The 3rd video is a poor little baby that’s getting a little too carried away at the boarding school for dogs…so carried away that the boarding school had to call home and deliver a very stern message to the parents. Needless to say, the message is SO FUNNY you have to check out the end of the episode to find out what we mean!

4:03 - 13:25 Dogs in Costumes
13:26 - 26:29 Effective Ways to Get Out of Communication
26:30 - 50:56 Validating Past Pain
Welcome to another episode of Vulnerabilities with Devon Vox, thank you for being vulnerable with us! We have a very special episode today as we continue in our reaction based deep discussions: 1st video…dogs make Wixx cry. Well technically…all animals in their natural happy habitat make Wixx cry but that’s neither here nor there xD
The 1st video has a husky in a Chucky costume chasing a cat…what more could you ask for?! This video morphs into a full blown conversation about how difficult (BUT WORTH IT) it is to raise a husky. Which inevitably shifts to talking about the freaking hair!
2nd video isn’t how we would go about effectively exiting a conversation you don’t want to be in…but that’s only because we don’t have a doorbell xD This video leads us into a surprisingly vulnerable conversation about Irish Goodbyes, unexpected people pleasing and masking.
The 3rd video is from a creator we will continue to see more of. This video is a 2-character video about validating past pain. This is from the perspective of a romantic relationship but this applies to every single interaction we have with the people in our lives whether we realize it or not. To explain the video, person #1 is in a counselor session explaining the ramifications of a recent breach in trust. Person #1 is very concerned and upset about the reactions they are getting from their partner and they are practicing vulnerability with person #2, the therapist. This video launches us into a full blown conversation about how to properly express pain your partner previously caused, how to navigate high emotional situations when both people are on the verge of feeling unheard/unseen/unsupported, and how to ultimately put situations that have caused immense pain effectively behind you.

01:24 - 11:49 We Don’t Share Food
11:50 - 21:30 Mercury Hates Us
21:31 - 36:32 The Applause We All Deserve
 
Welcome to another episode of Vulnerabilities with Devon Vox, thank you for being vulnerable with us! We have a very special episode today as we continue in our reaction based deep discussions: 1st video is FANTASTIC and so approachable. Do you have your food stolen by your significant other? Your kids? Your friends? Also if you like Cane’s, have you tried ordering butter on both sides of your bread? Did you know they also sell honey mustard? Go out and try it immediately if you happen to be a chicken eating carnivore. Also be prepared to hear us talk about our restaurant nightmares from our time working at Steak n Shake.
2nd video is Mercury looking down on us blaming her for our struggles down here on earth lol So if you are into horoscopes and deep intellectual discussions, you’re gonna love this segment! We dive DEEP into how social media motivates us, how it takes away from our motivation, and wanting to follow a manual for how difficult and confusing life can get sometimes.
3rd video is what everyone should hear when they are waking up first thing in the morning: APPLAUSE. That’s right, some APPLAUSE for moving through this earth would be nice. Earth can be thankless sometimes so check out this segment if you wanna imagine what it would be like if we were all treated the way we deserve: like lil beautiful babies.

Welcome to another episode of Vulnerabilities with Devon Vox, thank you for being vulnerable with us! We have a very special episode today as we continue in our reaction based deep discussions:
 
The first video is a true identifier: Do you sleep with a fan? What about the A/C? What about both at the same time AND the window open? Needless to say a fight ensues in our discussion lol
 
The second video is one we believe everyone should heed with extreme caution: Listen to your body! Seriously! It sends us so many messages that we somehow take for granted for things that don’t actually make us feel any better. A mind needs vs body needs discussion follows our reaction.
 
And finally, the third video is a deep dive on what we perceive to be factual in this world and the dangers that unchallenged tradition continues to cause in present day society. Topics here include misinforming with religious tactics, how tradition comes to be designed, and the ramifications of existing without the knowledge that you deserve love and acceptance.

The first video we react to is one that talks about boundaries within oneself and what happens when that inner trust in yourself starts to break down. Your inner conscience always keeps tabs on what you’re doing, where you’re going, and more importantly if the balance between helping others and helping yourself isn’t equal. We finish the segment by speaking on self betrayal from three different perspectives.
 
The second video we react to is about slave culture in the workspace and how not having boundaries can negatively affect your energy levels. At the start of the video, Carmen is obviously working hard on multiple tasks and is then approached by her(their) boss to add more to an already busy schedule. We notice how at the beginning of the video, they’re noticeably struggling to say no but by the end of the video they’ve already started making it a routine enough to congratulate themselves which launches us into a deep convo about how parents pass down slave culture to kids because they pick it up in the workplace.
 
Finally, the last video is a deep dive into how not trusting your own boundaries within yourself can result in messy communication, people pleasing, and abolishing inner self respect while inside of a relationship. When you’re on your own, these things can be mitigated or ignored but inside of a relationship not speaking up in a timely manner causes more chaos than you could ever imagine. Learning to be there for yourself, is inherently going to make you a better partner in your relationships as well.

Living in this patriarchal capitalistic society has some serious drawbacks when it comes to being creative and trying to make a living. Its almost like you have to choose between the two. Unless you have unorthodox ideas, supportive friends/family, and belief in yourself. ALSO, anyone exhausted with this constant berating that monogamy is the only means to a successful relationship? Its not. There are many different types and we take a deeper look at the emotional strings attached to Ethical Non-monogamy and we briefly examine some of the difficulties of starting your relationship off monogamous, then slowly changing that dynamic.

Hello everyone! We are happy to have you with us today. This episode is the most needed one we've spoken on to date. This issue helps all of us, effects all of us, and is going to take a lot of teamwork and communication to continue addressing. Today we are gonna talk about mens confidence, the lack of real community for masculine folks, a mens health transgender WARRIOR that deserves so much love and admiration for their journey, how all of this effects our strong women and femme presenting folks(honestly everybody for that matter), and so much more.

Welcome! We took a break for our producer to graduate in February but now we are back at it! This episode we took a deep dive into struggle with being committed to self, continuing down a path of further misalignment from your core values and priorities, the confidence it takes to jam out at red lights regardless of who may be watching, and the harrowing effects of being black in a rich white town.

Welcome! We packed this episode TO THE BRIM with some comedy and some vulnerability. This particular episode comes from the perspective of one of our cohosts Wixx and her journey through career transitions, the effect of having consistent people in her life for the first time, overcoming negative feedback loops both inside and outside of relationships, how vices that don't appear as harmful as others still carry negative weight on our conscious, starting Sex and the City with Dev, the power of apologizing, and a whole lot more where that came from. WE. WENT. IN. Come join us!
