Today we’d like to introduce you to Epiphany Evans.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Epiphany. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
As a fan of podcasts, I was already skilled in playing the role of listener. Taking on the role of creator appealed as I’m a generally creative someone.
As a woman, I’ve spent years being taught both implicitly and explicitly that women aren’t afforded what spaces men are to not only acknowledge, but embrace our sexuality. Even more than embrace, women aren’t at all encouraged to analyze the same sexuality that falls under the lens of everyone around us.
In conceptualizing podcast topics, I knew I wanted to discuss what I wanted to hear. I placed an emphasis on hearing and then actively listening. Rather than having a spotlight on myself, I wanted to watch closely as it’s placed on another woman in a very safe space. Where I am today is continuing to reach any and all who identify as women and inviting them to be a part of creating good content.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
While this journey is still in its beginnings, it has so far been rather smooth! The biggest struggle is in convincing women that it’s more cathartic than it is uncomfortable to sit with me and divulge on what they don’t in most if any, spaces.
Asking women to carefully analyze what they don’t regularly and in a way they likely never have is asking a lot of them and especially when what’s being analyzed makes them so vulnerable in sharing. I’m most appreciative of all past and future women that have agreed to speak with me.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Afterthot: An Anonymous Podcast For Sexually Active, And Dormant, Women – what should we know?
Afterthot is an anonymous podcast for sexually active and dormant women. Though I limit interviews to only women, I am sure to include all those that identify as women. The show is segmented into 3 separate parts that involve a chronological walkthrough of one’s sexual development, a past story on a notable “thottie” or “impure” moment and then, the final section involves playing a game similar to truth or date to learn about either the first or last time a specific encounter occurred.
Providing a space where women can speak freely and comfortably on what we so often don’t make me especially satisfied with all that I’ve done with this passion project.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Most necessary for my success with this podcast and I think anywhere else, is openness. I must maintain it in sharing with others what it is I’m doing and what it means to me and can mean to others. All my guests must keep an openness during their interview otherwise there’s little to be shared. Openness is all the core of my efforts.
