Description

Welcome to Almost Adulting! New name, same daddy issues (previously known as Too Tired To Be Crazy).

The meme queen, Violet Benson is back with a brand-new podcast to empower, liberate, and help you feel seen. On Almost Adulting, Violet is the big sister you NEED with no topic off limits. In fact, each month will focus on a specific topic such as mental health, career, manifesting, conspiracy theories, LGBTQ+, sex, dating, breakups, and more!!

Each week, Violet discusses the biggest stories in pop culture, does giveaways, and answers fan questions with special celebrity guest interviews, while focusing on a specific monthly topic.

Welcome to the Almost Adulting family. New weekly episodes every Thursday and every other Tuesday!


Episode Date
Can A Player Change? w/ Neil Strauss
00:51:09

Besties, throughout September we covered all things personal growth and really checked in with each other. So the best way to end this month is by talking to Neil Strauss, a ten-time New York Times best-selling author. His books, The Game and Rules Of The Game, for which he went undercover in a secret society of pickup artists for two years, made him an international celebrity and an accidental hero to men around the world. Though this sounds a little questionable, the topic here is GROWTH, which is exactly what’s displayed here today. 

This week on Almost Adulting, Violet and Neil begin the conversation by diving right into the controversy of his best selling book, The Game. Violet asks Neil to dive deep to help people understand who he was at that time and unpack the chokehold the book had on society. Of course, this isn't an Almost Adulting episode if the two didn’t talk about relationships. Neil explains why divorce was one of the best things him and his ex-wife could have ever done, leading them to having an amazing relationship today. They also discuss the common mistakes that often lead to breakups, how to move on from said breakups, and why a cheater will remain a cheater unless they mention these specific words…tune in Besties!

Lies Our Brain Tells Us w/ Amy Morin
01:00:33

When going through a tough time the most annoying thing in the world is everyone seems to have all the advice on what you “should” do, right? Well you’re not alone, but the reality is that sometimes these things recommended to us are actually things we should be doing - but before we can even fathom doing them, we have to drop our bad habits. 

Besties, welcome Amy Morin to Almost Adulting! Amy is a licensed clinical social worker, college psychology instructor and psychotherapist, and responsible for one of the most popular Ted Talks of all time. Today Violet and Amy start the conversation by unpacking the often stressful topic of habits - how we form them, stick to them, and what we can do when we accidentally break our positive habits. The duo dives into what our bad habits say about us, and the importance of breaking them in order to create good ones. Through this, Amy teaches that mental strength and mental health are actually two entirely different things, and how the lies that our brain tells us affect us on a much deeper level than we realize. Finally, the ladies discuss a topic that life never prepares us for: grief.  Though grief is something no one can avoid, it’s never something anyone is ready for. Through Amy telling her story she learned coping mechanisms that truly changed her life, and that EVERYTHING always relates back to one thing…habits. Whether it be maintaining good ones, or breaking bad ones, habits can be HARD, so give each other grace and tune in to discover the tools you didn’t know you needed.

Dreaming is a Privilege w/ Barrett Pall
01:13:00

Though we all come from different backgrounds and realities, we are all dreamers. No matter the hardships faced or the obstacles thrown in our way, that doesn’t mean we should be cruel and harsh to ourselves. We can dream multiple dreams even when we can only realize them one at a time.

Today we welcome Barrett Pall to Almost Adulting! Barrett is a humanitarian and professional life coach to CEOs of fortune 500 companies, celebrities, Middle Eastern Royalty, and everyday incredible humans - because that is what we all are. Today's episode is opened by a conversation about Barrett finding his voice through the trials and tribulations of his life, which led him to become a major advocate for the LGBTQ community and underprivileged communities. Based on his life experiences, Barrett explains how he was always a dreamer and teaches tools to help practice constant gratitude and mental awareness, regardless of how dark the world may seem at times. Finally, the duo discusses why setting boundaries for yourself especially when using social media is a must, the importance of taking care of yourself so you are able to take care of others, and how we always have a choice of how we approach life and our dreams. Besties, sometimes the going gets tough, but you are never alone - tune in to find out why!

There’s No Fairytale Ending w/ Todd Baratz
01:08:44

It can be a hard pill to swallow, but you can’t also become the person you want to be if you’re stuck in the past. There’s no fairytale or storybook ending if you don’t fix what’s within, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it alone!

Today we welcome sex and relationships therapist, Todd Baratz! Todd has devoted his entire life to wellness as he actively works against all formalities, traditions and diagnosis. Together Violet and Todd discuss the importance of intimacy negotiation in a relationship, identifying self sabotaging behaviors, and how to fill emotional voids. The two also deep dive into the myth of being “relationship ready”. The truth is, there’s no such thing. Relational love leads to self love. Besties, sometimes the real breakup you need is with your old patterns and behaviors.

And sometimes…we just need to hear the cold hard truth. Kidding. But when you only focus on the negative things in life, you don’t realize that that’s all you’re allowing your life to be.

Violet and Kamie, instant besties and Scorpio sisters, start off the conversation by talking brutally honestly about some of their own faults, and even their friends. They discuss how their delivery may not always be the best, but it may just be a Scorpio thing. They also talk in depth about Kamie’s life post her 5-year relationship, how NOT having a rebound after a breakup is a painful part of growing up, the two forms of cheating, and which of them is truly worse than the other. The truth hurts besties, no matter which way you put it.

He’s Wasting Your Time w/ Patti Stanger
01:25:28

Read it and weep besties. It’s the truth. Stop wasting your time over a boy who just wants you around to boost his ego, to do his bidding, and to make himself more attractive to other women. Boys are just now learning how to live without their mom doing their laundry for them, let alone know a thing about commitment yet. Boys will keep you waiting and play mind games with you, and the LAST thing we’re doing is putting up with it any longer.

Today, we welcome Patti Stanger back to Almost Adulting. As a third generation matchmaker, Patti founded the Millionaire's Club in January of 2000 after serving five years as the Director of Marketing/Special Events for Great Expectations, the oldest and largest dating service in the U.S. Given her expertise in matchmaking and Violet’s experience in dating men, the duo talks about the male logic while dating, why successful women have higher standards and don’t consider marriage in their early twenties and why we should always keep a three-man rotation. Violet and Patti also discuss the effects of poor parenting, the real reason why men take advantage of the woman emotionally, and the many complicated aspects of dating while technology is evolving. You’re gonna want your pen and paper out for this, everything you’re about to hear is FACT.

4 Ways To Self Love
00:36:39

And no, not in the way you're thinking! Since this month is all about relationships, Violet decided to talk about the most important relationship you will ever have - the one with yourself. Today Violet gets super vulnerable and upacks some things of her own, while giving you guys her step by step guide she uses to practice self love. Besties, In order for us to have healthy relationships with others, we have to look inward and mend the relationship with ourselves. 

And remember, never let a person show you twice that they don’t want you. If they want you in their life, they’ll treat you with kindness and love. If they want you to be part of their journey, they will want to spend their time with you and will always appreciate spending time with you. When they love you for who you are, you will never have to change. You will be loved just as you are, flaws and imperfections included.

Hoe Life 2 Wife Life w/ Hannah Berner
01:23:09

They say you can’t turn a hoe into a housewife, but we’d like to think otherwise.

At some point in our life, whether we are at the height of our career or living our best single lives, we all want to find that one person we can spend the rest of our life with, right? That one true love we all grew up hoping to find one day. I mean, at the very least, who doesn’t want to be with the best partner and have the best s*x at the drop of a dime?

Besties, today we are joined by Hannah Berner! Hannah is the host of two extremely successful podcasts Giggly Squad and Berning In Hell, a standup comedian, reality TV star, and now here with us on Almost Adulting! Today Violet and Hannah waste no time getting into things beginning with Violet calling out Hannah for not inviting her to her wedding! Hannah then goes into detail about her transition from hoe life to wife life, what it’s like dating (then marrying) an older guy, falling in love with someone you least expect to fall in love with, and why you should look for a partner that takes ugly photos of you. The two superstars also talk about the harsh realities of their professions and why checking in with yourself mentally is SO important. This episode is jam packed with hilarious stories and advice so sit back and listen up!

Define “Relationship” w/ See The Thing Is Podcast
01:20:27

Hey, Besties! It’s the first Thursday of July and this month, we are celebrating relationships! My favorite topic because I am OBVIOUSLY so good at them! So get comfortable because we’re about to get uncomfortable! This entire month we’re discussing love, partnerships, the different types of partnerships, and unpacking all the good, bad, and the ugly that comes with them! But before we get into that, Violet gives a quick life update and tells us about her recent rendezvous to Greece, where she planned on sight seeing and ATVing, but…all she got was c*caine and ket. Better luck next time!


See the thing is, we’re ALMOST Adulting. Never said we were all the way there yet! Today, we have Bridget Kelly & Mandii B, hosts of the See, The Thing Is podcast - and with Violet joining the mix, we’ve found the trio you never knew you needed! In this episode we’re covering it ALL. From being the other woman, being the cheater, why or why not we plan on getting married, and even childhood trauma that shaped how we approach relationships in our adult lives. Violet, Bridget, and Mandii start the conversation off hot by diving into the various types of relationships, from the most traditional types, to the polar opposite. With varying opinions on basically everything, this episode is sure to open your mind to some things you definitely have never considered before. The trio also discusses living as modern day women (who’s independent and doesn’t need ANY man - but may want one!) and where men stand when in a relationship with self-sustaining, self-providing, successful career women. We’re starting this month off hot besties, so get ready!

Relationship to RelationSH*T ft. Jessica Baum
01:07:07

Are things ever going TOO well so your brain forces you to mess it up?

Trust me, you’re not alone! As part of our human nature, we yearn for genuine love and affection. We tend to gravitate toward relationships that will reinforce our need for affection and validate our feelings. We always search for someone who can be there with us when we feel lost and helpless, and someone who can embrace us even when we feel unworthy of love. Sounds simple enough right? But if all of that is true, why do all of my relationships keep turning into relationsh*ts?! Well today besties, we’re getting some answers. 

Today, we have Jessica Baum. Jessica is a psychotherapist, author, thought leader, relationship coach, and founder of the Be Self-full® - a company that provides tailored coaching services, helping women empower themselves. Out of the four relationship attachment styles, Violet and Jessica put their focus on the Anxious and Avoidant style and why people who possess these attachment styles are easily drawn to each other. So if you’re wondering why things can be going GREAT only for your brain to shut down and force you to run away, you’re about to find out! Don’t worry, you’re not as messed up as you think you are. The duo also talks about how love bombing, despite its negative connotation online, can be pleasantly genuine, how to set healthy boundaries for you and your relationships, how we actually CAN get addicted to a person, and why we are responsible for our own anxiety. We’re unpacking A LOT today -  but whatever it is you do, do NOT text your ex after this. So hit play and listen up!

I'm Single, You're a Father w/ Alex Papiccio
00:56:13

What’s your craziest hookup story? And don’t leave out the juicy (or gross) details!

It’s probably one that involves a first date, dinner, alcohol, and some intimate moments that are either hilariously funny or morbidly disastrous. Whatever your story is, I don’t think it can even come close to the one you’re about to hear today. What about the time your boyfriend cheated on you, only for the girl he cheated with to end up pregnant? Today we’re talking about the things that should definitely be told to a therapist, but are honestly way funnier to tell on this podcast. 

Today, we have Alex Papiccio! Alex is a social media personality, a comedic soul, a recurring guest, and one of Violet’s dearest friends. With their already developed chemistry, Violet and Alex dive straight into their hilarious hookup stories, Alex’s extremely hot boyfriend how their s*xual activities have significantly changed after living together, tips on how you can score a sugar (or splenda!) daddy, and why women need to stop doing “wifey” duties when they only have the “girlfriend” title. I know that one may have stung a bit, but it’s a reality check that we ALL need to hear sometimes. This episode is jam packed and will have you in tears - happy tears that is! Tune in now, besties!

Surprise, I'm Not Perfect
00:40:43

This just in... Violetta Elaia Benson isn't perfect!

We all get tired. We all make mistakes. And we all mess up. It’s normal because it is in our nature to not get things right the first try. It’s okay to not be okay when you don’t feel okay. 

Hello, Besties! Today, I’m sharing an acupuncture session turned therapy session where I was told holding in my emotion is stressing my body out! And speaking of stress, the interview with Bella Thorne came out last week. Before the interview, I had one of the worst days of my life, it made me breakdown afterwards. And I was being hard on myself, which I shouldn’t be doing. So, if you want to know what this is all about and how I was trying to stay alive the whole time, hit that play button!

B*tch it's Bella Thorne
01:04:02

“Our society makes victims feel like villains.”

Final Episode of May’s Mental Health Month

People deal with childhood trauma differently just as the horrible experience is different for every person, for every victim. The only consolation that victims have is a support system that is always there for them, that is present with them when their overwhelming feelings arise and when painful memories are triggered. It is in our support group that we can learn to accept what happened, live through it, and move on with life. But what if we don’t have that kind of support group?

Today’s guest is actress, model, singer, and songwriter Bella Thorne. Warning: We are discussing sensitive topics and our way of dealing with these issues may not be what people might expect. Nonetheless, we get to listen to how a victim and a survivor of sexual abuse grew up to be a forward-focused person, always working hard to make a name for herself, and is now open about her experiences with dating and relationship struggles.

Episode #2 of May’s Mental Health Month.

"It's always the people that never loved us that teach us the most about love."

If you’ve lost yourself in your last relationship, let me hand you the roadmap to finding yourself again.

In today’s episode, Human Connections Specialist, Mark Groves, teaches us all about prioritizing yourself and your healing after a breakup. If you’re not over the last guy that ghosted you, it’s okay because neither am I. The only thing that’s not okay is not loving yourself. I know, it’s easier said than done. But remember, pain might occur in a relationship, but so does healing.

I Don’t Want To Be Sad Anymore
00:49:04

In honor of May's #MentalHealthMonth, we open the month with a dear episode of mine where I cover all sides of depression and my own battle with it.

On today's episode, I share one of the darkest times of my life. As I choke up and cry, I share my painful story of shame, battling clinical depression 6 years ago, and how I almost didn't think I'd survive. I also discuss the difference between being sad, feeling depressed, and having actual clinical depression.


PERSONAL MESSAGE TO MY BESTIES OUT THERE:

Please know that you are not alone, you are loved, and I'm so proud of you for getting out of bed today! The pain you are feeling won't last forever... I promise. The sun will rise tomorrow and we will try again. <3

If you or anyone you know is battling with depression or having suicidal thoughts, please speak up.

How Daddy Issues Was Born
00:58:22

Before anything else, let me put this out here, THIS episode talks about BULLYING in the office space and losing yourself in the process because the BULLIES made you believe that you’re supposed to take it all in.

Last week, we talked about how to succeed in life and get THE dream job. Today, we will focus on WHY it’s okay to ditch your dream job when it’s making you miserable and unhappy. I started Daddy Issues because I was bullied and even though this alter ego is a completely different person, she is happy. She conquered her world and she thrived in the social circles she wanted to be a part of. 

So yes, Bestie! You can do it even if others think you can’t. Believe in what YOU can do!

Start Manifesting Your Life
01:01:20

Do you have the tissues ready? 'cause it's about to get EMOTIONAL. Today I present to you my three-part Manifestation audio diary. Each section is very close to my heart so listening carefully.

Do you feel like you've lost track of your dreams? That your life has become so mundane that it doesn't bring you the joy you once had? If the answer is yes, this episode is made especially for you. During this episode, I talk about how important it is to never lose track of your dreams, how to manifest the life that you want for yourself, and blocking negative energies that other people might put upon you.

Never let anything or anyone get in your way because you are beautiful and you are loved. Make sure to remove yourself from situations that instead of adding value, make you question why you're even involved.

You are a light in this universe and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise BADDIES!

Today's episode was brought to you by my sponsors at HBO MAX, check out their newest show F-boy Island.

Francesca fills us in on ALL the deets about her infamous relationship with Harry Jowsey, her relationship status, and gives us the exclusive and most recent update that you have NOT heard anywhere else. 

Violet also tells us about her vacation-bae and how you truly can find love in the most hopeless places…like at a restaurant in Tulum while you’re already ten tequila shots deep. Even though he devolves into hopeless-bae and forgets she exists the very next day…but hey! It wouldn’t be a true vacation romance without some pain, right?
