Erika gets into Pieces of Freedom herself as she talks about living her life as the person she is, not who someone else wants her to be. Interestingly she has a term for this: "living someone else's should's." Like, "you should go to college."
A huge shoutout to Jonathan Fields for having the courage to not edit out his guest's swear words. Out of respect for his viewers he's instituded the ESRB rating system. So up front he tells us what to expect. For instance, Erika here. She uses swear words and he rates the recording accordingly. For me it's about athenticity. If using swear words is what you're about, then anything less is just not plain authentic. Now if one uses swear words in a vulgar and demeaning way, then I probably don't want to be listening to them anyway and I am quite sure neither would Jonathan.
