THE RAW EXPERIENCE

A Podcast for Real Ass Women (& Men, if They Dare to Listen!)

Welcome to the RAW Experience — the podcast de-stigmatizing women’s passion, anger, and rage, where we real talk our way through the modern experiences we face and the feelings we have about them.

Birthed from the the gritty, intense & hilarious conversational flames about life I have with the people closest to me every day (and with myself in my own head).


Donate to the RAW Experience

Hosted by me, your girl Alexandra Schueler, and published every Thursday — you’re invited to join me in these savage, transparent, intimate & literally unedited dialogues with the people closest to me in my life, where we peer into the chaos and messiness of what it means to be a modern woman living totally as herself in a world that would have her doing otherwise.

THE RAW EXPERIENCE is a weekly truth-telling session, keeping it uncomfortably real in a world often lacking substance, that constantly sets us up for unrealistic expectations in life and navigates us away from the truth of who we are.

It’s like, the talks you’d have in privacy or behind closed doors with your best friend or lover — except instead it’s me putting myself on blast and being the scapegoat for all y’all by publishing my strong opinions and insane experiences for your listening pleasure. This won’t be pretty, polished or nice — everything will be 100% uncensored, unapologetic & untamed.

It’s sex, drugs, rock and roll type of conversation, feminism style — with your friendly interweb real-talker.

This podcast isn’t a popularity contest, where the purpose is to get all the most socially prized and famous guests on — it’s actually the antithesis of that.

Instead, I sit down to riff with real people from my life or people that I meet along my adventures, to share the conversations I have behind closed doors with those I love the most.

The RAW Experience consists of both these deep dialogues with friends, as well as solo episodes of me going off about my personal experiences, ranting on things I’m passionate about, or poetically musing on the the mystical nature of life.

None of that surface level ish and bypassing — all fun and keeping it really real.

For those of you that know me, you’ll know that travel is one of my major passions.

Per request and inspired by my major travels over the past decade and especially the last 4-5 months of road-tripping alone with my dog child around the United States, I decided it would be fun to share some of my favorite tips for travel, insights into solo travel as a woman, and a bunch of my favorite absolutely insane stories from some of my best trips.

In this episode, I get into:

• Real talk on loneliness while traveling alone

• Why travel is cathartic + solitude is therapeutic

• Shitty hotel tips + tricks

• How traveling intentionally  + spontaneously is life-changing

• On choosing travel partners

• What happened when I drank San Pedro in Peru

• How to choose between hotels, Airbnb’s + camping

• 48 hours of craziness in Lisbon

• Staying safe while traveling alone

• Travel inspired tattoos

• My hotel room crime scenes I leave behind

• Puking up a “to-go” sticker in the Lima airport

EP03: THE REALEST YOU’VE HEARD ME YET, PART 3/3

Smaller.png

This episode is part three of three of an interview I did as the introduction to this podcast with one of my closest and longest term friends, and is the most candid, intimate, and honest I've ever been about myself publicly.

While road tripping on the West Coast of the United States with my dearest friend Vanessa, we had the idea that she interview me with the most uncomfortably intimate questions I've ever been asked, as a means to have the beginning of this podcast founded on the realest get-to-know-me session ever — while setting the tone for just how raw and honest I intend for the episodes on this podcast to be.

As someone who knows me better than just about anyone else in my life, Vanessa sat me down for what was intended to be a one episode interview, which turned into a four hour marathon recording session of her digging up all of the juiciest conversation topics and that I'm breaking up into three parts, for your listening pleasure.

This three part episode series turned out to be a deep dive into how I feel about some of the edgiest aspects of life. It's not poised, pretty, or nice. It's messy, candid, and unfiltered — exactly what I want this podcast to stand for.

In this episode, Vanessa gets me talking about:

• The main thing I would change about men

• Three things that have been most influential in my life

• What I think people who don’t like me say about me

• Whether or not I differ from how I represent myself online

• The current relationship I have to social media

• One product I would represent (hint: the answer might be NONE)

• My favorite products (I hated this series of questions but answered them)

• Whether or not I used to make tampon tea

• What my favorite “drugs” are (spoiler alert: they're plants)

• The quality in men I most value

What I most appreciate in my friendships

• The one thing I’m most ashamed of

• Real talk on my very strange OCD habits

• The times I most doubt myself & what triggers it

• Vanessa throws down her “Oprah” questions at me

• My three favorite cities in the world

• The women I look up to in life

• What I’d do “for the dick” (the John Mayer dick)

• How I navigate weird societal stereotypes

... and so, so much more!
