Britt and Sax

Marriage

We are Britt and Saxon, a married couple in Denver with 2 kids, ages 5 and 7. We are both full time parents and independent working artists (rapper/comedian Old Man Saxon and filmmaker/musician Baby Luck). Life is busy and messy, and we both do so much and feel so much the other person doesn't appreciate or even know about. So we decided to create this podcast, where we will each sit down separately for 3 minutes, 4 nights a week, Monday thru Thursday, to record what happened for us that day. We will not edit or do multiple takes. When our 3 minutes are up, we stop. Then it's the next person's turn. Simple! Making this podcast together is our way of doing something consistently and simply, in the midst of all our respective long term creative goals and projects, that often drain us and leave us feeling depleted. We hope you'll come along on this journey with us as we find our way by being candid, honest and most importantly, seeing and listening to each other. We'll do this as long as it helps our marriage. The shape of the podcast is evolving as we move through grieving Britt's mom. Thank you for your patience and flexibility. Sometimes only Britt goes, and sometimes she goes over!) Thank you for being here with us! We hope this makes you feel more connected in an increasingly disconnected world. Link to Our Patreon - www.patreon.com/brittandsax to support us and you'll gain exclusive access to our special Weekend Edition episodes, dropping every Sunday night! On the weekends, we record our 30 minute Weekend Edition together, where we review the week and finish unfinished business, available exclusively on Patreon for as little as $5/month. Love, Britt and Sax

Britt misses her mom, immunizations for Philippines, marriage changes, and they stole the free sign from the front yard.

EP 156 - Signing off for the year - crying in the car, rage room, wintering, how we love.

12/1/2023
Britt cries in her car again. Saxon decides to stop doing the podcast. Our life is not content, may we find contentedness in being present more than recording. But I also really believe in recording and time stamping as a way to create culture and history and stay present and listen. A bit of a puzzle but we are figuring it out. Is it helpful to me, to our marriage, to our listeners? It's not helpful for Saxon so he's taking a pause. I am deciding what I want and need to do. For now, I am going into hibernation until January to cry, dream, winter, clean the house and grieve my mother. Thanksgiving was BRUTAL. I don't expect Christmas to be any easier. Seylah's birthday is this weekend. We are here. We love you. Thank you for going on this ride with us. We'll see in you in January - and you can always join Britt on The Overflow - her substack offering - https://imbabyluck.substack.com/

Always hungry.Instead of making a long list and plan and calendar events I am forced to adhere to or else I feel tremendous guilt, what if I did wake up and see how I felt and what I felt like doing?
