Moving Forward with Love: Taking a Break for Come With Us
Show Notes Transcript

Sometimes, the weight of life's events calls for a pause, a deep breath, and a heartfelt reflection. Today, I'm holding the space to share a significant update about 'Come With Us' and to honor the profound impact my co-host Beth has made, as she deals with the unimaginable loss of her beloved daughter, Kaia. While Beth has stepped back to navigate through her grief—a journey with no roadmap or timeframe—we remember her warmth and wisdom through her countless contributions to the podcast and invite you to explore her resources at bethdarling.com.

This episode is not just an announcement, but a celebration of the moments we've shared, from the early days with Beth, Tina, and myself, to the laughter and learning that came with every discussion about sex and relationships. We recognize that the essence of our show thrives on the dynamic between co-hosts and while the format may change, the spirit of 'Come With Us' continues. Revisit our most memorable episodes or discover them for the first time, and join me as we cherish the past and look forward to the future with hope and gratitude for the journey we've all shared.

Speaker 1:

Are you saying you faked with me? Yeah, I just can't say it. And it says I'm so cool, I'm not wrong, now you're single. What do you know about sexual relations? Is it true that if you don't use it, you're gonna use it? I'm a little worried about being a slut. You're listening to the Come With Us podcast Talking the good, the kinky and the ugly. Here are your hosts, beth and Erin.

Speaker 2:

Hey, there are you, holes and poles, and welcome to another episode of Come With Us podcast. A little bit of a shorter episode today. I'll explain why here in just a few seconds. But I am Erin in for Beth again Gonna fly it solo all by myself. But, like I said, it's not going to be very long. Just going to cover a few things for you. First off, I want to thank Beth for everything she's done. Make sure you check out bethdarlingcom, get her book, the Five Kinds of Intimacy, or check out her classes, all the instructions, stuff that she does, the coaching, all that great stuff. Yeah, like I said, it's gonna be a little bit of a shorter episode today and the reason for that is after talking with Beth and sitting down and doing some thinking, I think for the time being we are going to kind of take Come With Us and put it on a shelf for a little bit.

Speaker 2:

Not that we don't really love doing the show, not that I haven't enjoyed, you know, getting to run it by myself a little bit, but with everything going on between life work, marriage, family and Beth is still not doing well over the loss of her daughter. She misses Kaia greatly and I can't even imagine what she's going through and she needs to take all the time in the world. She needs to grieve and recover and right now, coming back to laugh and you know, talk about sexy fun and all that stuff just isn't in the cards for her. And that's okay, we're okay with that. We talked to Dr Stephanie about it and you know, grieving takes some people longer than others. It just depends on who you are. Everybody has a different story and everybody has a different way of dealing with it. So with Beth being gone and me running out of guests, I don't want to keep feeding you every guest every week. I think that we both think this show works better with at least two people.

Speaker 2:

Those of you who've listened for all 160, what now two episodes know that we started out with three. But me just sitting here talking about sex and relationships with you is it's fun. But I can tell by looking at numbers and statistics and stuff. Beth was the, she was the draw in this duo and that's okay. I mean every, every couple has a reach her and every couple has a settler and she was the settler. She settled for me. I was. I was just definitely reaching out of my comfort zone and trying to find something to have fun.

Speaker 2:

But we're not gonna make this completely set. I'm gonna go over some of our crazy episodes we did Just for a couple of seconds each. Like I said, if you've listened since episode one, I Appreciate it, beth appreciates it and Tina definitely appreciates it. If you haven't, maybe go back and listen and Find out who Tina is and all the the goofy shit we all three said together. Tina and I definitely had like a brother sister dynamic when as we just gave each other shit and if you hurt us giving each other shit on the air, it was ten times that off the air we had a really Competitive banter between the two of us on certain things, especially sports, because we both love sports, we both love gambling. It was a lot of fun.

Speaker 2:

She decided to leave the show you know what, over a year ago now and then it just left Beth and I and rather than Trying to find someone to take over for her and add another another person on the third microphone, we decided there is no replacing Tina, there is only what we can do is go forward, and Beth and I did that. So you know we we spent the rest of our time together, trying to entertain you, educate you, help you find answers or help you just find something to listen to, to relax or get your mind off of the life that you're living. It happens and then, of course, shortly before the holidays, beth's daughter took her life and Beth has been in in the stages of grieving ever since. We hoped she and I both we're hoping that starting in 2024. We could turn over a new leaf, get back to it, you know, hit the ground running but it turns out it's just not in the cards and I'm sorry to say that I don't know how many people are actually devastated to hear it. But that doesn't mean we're completely done. It doesn't mean that you will never hear from us again. But for the time being, while Beth recovers, while Beth, you know, deals with things that she's got going on, I'm gonna take some time away. I'm going to reassess and kind of get my, get my head right as far as work and family and all that stuff goes, and Then I'll be back with her whenever she decides it's the right time, I will. I'll be joining her, hopefully as long as she'll have me. You know, we set out just doing this on a whim.

Speaker 2:

Beth used to have a show on the ESPN affiliate here in Houston, texas, and that's how I met her. We immediately had chemistry. We immediately had a connection. She's one of the most caring and amazing people I've ever met in my life. I love her to death.

Speaker 2:

And you know, about a year or so after she, she decided to kill that radio show off. I call it quits doing that, doing live radio. My wife and I were just hanging out with her because we've been friends and it was brought up. Hey, why don't you? I said you know, why don't you do some type of radio show again? And then it got brought up. We'll screw it, let's just do a podcast, because then we can say whatever we want. We can find our own, our own partners, we can find our own guests. We can cuss if we want to, shit, fuck, piss balls. See, I can um, and and from there it was originally just Beth and I and that was the whole plan is. You know? Hey, I'll show up at her shop at the time called Darling Way, which is now Lilith's way down in the Heights of Houston. But I showed up on a day when it was closed and Took out a table and chairs and some microphones. And then Tina walked in and Beth said hey, this is my friend, tina, who was almost my daughter or my stepdaughter, do you mind if she sits down with us? And to me, I was all for it.

Speaker 2:

From there, like I said, we we kind of all hit it off and we went together and we had a lot of fun. We got to talk about some crazy cool things, we got to talk about some Other kinds of crazy things, we got to talk to some amazing people over the years and we have you guys to thank for it. I mean, this is what we hit the four-year mark, I think, just a couple weeks ago, and that is something that is so rare in the podcasting world and I want to thank every single one of you For listening this far, for listening so much and for, you know, sharing with us. Wish I would have gotten a little bit more feedback and interaction out of you guys, but it happens. I understand. I mean, this is a, this is a topic that not everybody's willing to jump in with both feet and just fire off an email About their sex life or fire off an email about their significant other or anything like that, so it's understandable.

Speaker 2:

I Want to talk about some of I mean looking back at you know, like I said, I look at numbers, our top episodes that we had. A lot of you guys and girls were interested and learning about squirting that was our number one show by far and it it was fun to do. I'm not gonna lie, I learned something. Beth learned something. Tina was on that episode on 99%. Sure, she learned something, I know she did, but that was our number one episode. Mitch mistress, ella talking with her about, you know, being a professional dominatrix and all that stuff. Vivian Rose, a wonderful model who's joined us now more than just the one episode, but hers, you know, cracked that top three Talking about three sums, talking about swinging, talking about, you know, going to places like naughty in New Orleans and all that stuff that enticed you guys to listen and I really appreciate you guys sticking around and checking it out.

Speaker 2:

That Means a lot to me to see that you know words that Beth and Tina and I put down on on some Audio recordings and released to the world had people that wanted to listen and had people that wanted to learn and enjoy and laugh with us. So I really appreciate that. I mean talked about pegging. We've talked about prostate play, we talked about hot wives, like I said, swinging, all kinds of fun stuff, and hopefully we gave you more. You Either things to try, things you want to try, gave you that little nudge of something that was on your mind that you wanted to try, and Then you decided to to dip your toe in the pool. Hopefully, like I said, feedback wasn't as much as I wanted, so I didn't get to know. You know how much of a difference we were making, if at all, with you, and I want to thank some of the people that have been on. Like I said, vivian Rose you can check her out if you just Google BBW.
