The Steem Sister Show - Episode 100 // Sober Curiosity (Part 1)
Welcome to the 100th episode of the Steem Sister Show! Hold the phone... did we just say 100??
YES! In fact ... keep your eyes out from some fun SSS content about it soon. Thinking about making a post with all the worst outtake photos. Trust me... there are so embarrassing ones just chillin' on my phone. Should I ask Mary before posting? hmmm 😈
Topic of this Episode – Sober Curiosity
In case you missed our 7 Day Sober Challenge Post - we are chatting about alcohol this week! More specifically... the absence of alcohol.
We are both taking a little break from booze as more of an experiment to see how it will impact our health, creativity and productivity. It was not hard to fill up both episodes this week and we hope you enjoy them!
Here are the questions we answered in this episode:
- What is the allure (or not allure) of hitting a buzzed or drunk state?
- (Impromptu Question) Will not drinking make the Steem Sister Show less funny?
- On a societal level – why do you think drinking is such a big part of the culture?
- (Impromptu Question) If people drink in social situations in order to have these fun connections with people… how much of that is authentic connection vs. an alcohol-induced sense of connection?
- @coolguy222 – Why do you think we are on the outs with alcohol?
- What do you order (or drink at home) instead of alcohol?
What is the Steem Sister Show All About?
We aim to bring more “non-crypto” related content to the Steem Blockchain. Although there is nothing wrong with this kind of content (@coruscate even posts on crypto related material sometimes) – we want to help create a better onboarding experience for new users. We talk a lot about attracting new users to the platform – but if the trending page is filled with crypto posts and flagging wars, they are likely to lose interest quickly.
We hope that by creating content that is more similar to what they are used to seeing on other social media sites – they will feel more excited about being here and creating content of their own!
How Does It Work?
We pick a different theme every week, and then throw totally random questions about that topic in a hat and go back and forth. We always have a mix of our own questions and some audience questions. Our rule is that we cannot tell each other our answers before filming! So you guys are getting our raw, unfiltered reactions here.
Every episode we announce the next week’s topic so people can submit questions.

If we chose to answer your question in the next show… we will send you 2 Steem!
The Next Week's Topic: Social Media
Our week on Sober Curiosity is already underway, and so we are no longer accepting questions on that topic. We are however accepting questions for next week!
Next week we will be chatting all about Social Media. Both Mary and I are in different places with our social media use right now - and so it will be interesting to chat about it. Mary is actually doing a social media detox and deleted all the apps from her phone, and I'm currently trying to build up a crypto/anarchist Instagram and so I'm suddenly spending way more time on traditional social media. We are also excited to talk about the differences between traditional, centralized social media - and decentralized apps like the ones built on Steem.
So please send us your questions on social media! If we choose your question to answer in an episode - we will send you 2 steem!
Ps... here's my new Instagram account if you wanna check it out.
That’s a Wrap!
We really hope you guys enjoyed this episode on sober curiosity! Be sure to check back in later this week for part 2! We'd love to hear from you guys on this topic too. What role does alcohol play in your life? Have you ever taken a break? If so... how did that go for you? Feel free to join our sober week challenge as well! We'll be reporting back next week with a video recap on how it went.
