094 | Valentine’s Day Special with Simi & Tim my couple crush

12107818_799201386852280_2133668852770067414_nI love Valentine’s Day. Oddly, this has been my favorite holiday ever since I can remember. If you’ve been reading my blog for ages you might remember this post or this post or this one about my affinity for February 14th. For Valentine’s Day week I thought I’d celebrate this year with an episode that’s special to me and a bit different from my typical interviews. This one is unique for a couple of reasons: it’s one of the few in-person interviews, we have two guests, and above all it’s a bit more fun and informal (although we actually talk about some deep stuff too). I recorded this episode with my ‘couple crush‘ Simi & Tim (Timi?), two of the kindest, smartest, and coolest people I’ve ever met (you might remember Simi from this episode). Separately they are each awesome and together they are pure gold. I love them individually, but their relationship itself really inspires me. After listening to today’s episode I think you’ll start to see why. I think it’s really important to have positive examples of relationships in our lives. I have a bunch and ‘Timi‘ are at the top of my list. We had a blast recording this episode and hope you enjoy eavesdropping on our 2 hour hang out too.*Note:: since this episode was recorded in person the audio will sound different than usual so you may need to adjust your volume to be able to hear Simi & Tim better and lower my voice if it’s too loud. We did the best we could with editing it but it’s not perfect, so please forgive the audio quality on this one. Don’t worry by the next live in-person episode I’ll have this sorted out. Thanks for being cool about it.

093 | Robyn Youkalis Retruns!

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 5.33.56 PMWhen I first started this podcast over 3 years ago I reached out to a bunch of people I admired to come on this show as guests…obviously.  This was a challenging task because at the time had zero followers so as you can imagine I got mostly no thank-you’s. However, a few people believed in me enough to give me over an hour of their time one-on-one time to come on my show. Robyn Youkilis was one of the few. Robyn was my fourth podcast guest (you can hear that convo here) and today she returns to the show with a bunch of huge life updates including the birth of her book Go With Your Gut. In this episode Robyn and I discuss body image, food, the writing process, and so many other elements of true holistic health. I’m so excited for you to listen to our conversation. Robyn is one smart lady who even reveals some cool secrets in this episode including the fact that she was in the movie Garden State. Listen to this episode for more on that and a bunch of other info on everything from digestive health to the negative effects of diet culture.

092 | Valerie Chaney

297153_2424026686061_610761387_nSome episodes are short, some are the standard hour length, and others are about 3 hours long. This is one of those episodes. My podcast hero Pete Holmes hosts a show I’ve spoken about many times called, You Made It Weird where most of the episodes are over two hours. I love every minute of those deep long form conversations but when I’m hosting I try to be mindful of the guest’s time. This time though I knew my guest would understand that the conversation we were having was just good to end after an hour because she too loves Pete’s podcast. In fact, Valerie Chaney is Pete’s girlfriend but our mutual love of his podcast isn’t the only reason I wanted to have Val on the show. She’s one of the coolest, smartest, and most down to earth people I’ve met on the internet and maybe IRL too. Val works with the organization Real Girl, which empowers girls with amazing tools including body image, confidence, understanding your period, and even feminism. I love this convo with Val so much. We get into everything from spirituality, to relationships, to body image, to creativity, to feminism. I know you’ll love her as much as I do. Enjoy eavesdropping on our conversation and the hit of sunshine you’ll get through Val’s sweetness throughout the episode.

091 | Kim Anami

urlLast winter a coach of mine (also a past podcast guest, Elle Griffin) recomended I check out Kim Anami. Kim’s work explores sex, femininity, vaginal health, and relationships. To be honest I was really resistant and hesitant to explore these areas of my life. I didn’t feel comfortable with my sexuality and femininity at all, much less talking about it. At the same time though, I knew Kim’s work was exactly what I needed because it was far out of my comfort zone. I ended up signing up for Kim’s Vaginal Kung Fu course and diving in head first. While it was very new to me  I did it and learned so much about myself in the process. I’m so glad I found her work and as soon as it made a positive impact on my life I knew I had to share Kim’s work with you on the podcast. Today we get into why our sexual health is a crucial element to our overall holistic wellness and how we can better harness our powerful creative sexual energy. Go into listening to this episode with an open mind and if the content we discuss in the episode interests you check out Vaginal Kung Fu which is about to start soon and has a very helpful free video training series in preparation for that launch that you can watch for free here. There’s a lot of great info in the free videos alone.
