We invited Kadar, one of Edward's best friends, to talk about their friendship from childhood and how it has evolved into their adulthood. A listener recommended we delve into becoming a man and discussing personal development when it comes to male friendships. This also wraps up Season 2 of The Common Nomad podcast!
On this week's episode of the Common Nomad podcast, Scylla & Edward discuss how certain social connections cannot be labeled as friendships. Sometimes, they are not people that are against you either. Also, sometimes being around people can breed an unspoken competition when you are not too familiar with them.
Edward & Scylla have a special guest on the discussion of female friendships. Scylla & Nsiki Simelane (IG: @lanelelo) have been friends for nearly ten years and they discuss the evolution of their friendships. It is unfortunate that female friendships can be depicted to be catty, filled with jealousy or envy, but thankfully this friendship doesn't exhibit any of those traits!
We have a new episode about the maintenance of friendships. Some friendships require a bit more effort than others and that is okay. Sometimes, that could be a good thing or a bad thing. We talk specifically about high vs low maintenance friendships; we define these relationships .. you know how we like definitions here! Also, we talk about the differences between the types and which type of friend we think we are.
On this episode, we brought a special guest to the Common Nomad podcast! We invited, George, Edward's younger brother to discuss how their sibling dynamic translates to friendship. Sibling dynamics are a different type of bond altogether simply because you were born into it and you truly learn to accept your sibling(s) as they are apart of you.
In this episode of the Common Nomad podcast, Edward & Scylla discuss whether platonic friendships are valued equally important as romantic relationships. Do friends strive to be better friends the same way they strive to be better lovers? Romantic relationships have always seemed to be a topic of social commodity. With relationship coaches and dating platforms, romance is an attention-grabbing topic. Are friendships regarded with the same attention? It's possible to be a great lover and a great friend.
Edward & Scylla catch up and reflect on the meaning of friendships as the new year closely approaches. The end of the year and the beginning of a new one usually calls for some introspection. Out with the old, and in with the new right? What did 2022 teach you about friendships?
This episode we talk about cultural appropriation in friendship. If you didn't know Edward and I are first generation of different cultures. We also decided to invite other first generation and immigrants to this episode for a deeper perspective on how our individual cultures are consumed here in the States as well as friends. Special thanks to Bolu (IG: @bolubaby_), Devang (IG: @djcurry) & Daniel for joining us on this episode.
Welcome to Season 2 of The Common Nomad podcast. We appreciate you all around the world for supporting us. Edward & I discuss if experiencing struggles makes you a stronger person. This topic was an interesting one, but also a very difficult one to articulate. Does everyone experience struggle? Does strength edify your character? Hmm, let us know what you think!
