6/15/2022
🏃‍♀️Running away from where it hurt? We all have done that. But walking back towards it? 🚶‍♀️ Being rejected for who you are takes a toll on a soul.

WHYLD24 - Travelling Through Life in a Mobile Record Studio - Ady Parzentny

5/15/2022
🛑 When will you stop treating your passion as a hobby? 🛑 To Ady Parzentny, music is everything. Has been for decades. When the working day was over, he used to hit the rehearsal room and play the night away. 🎸 👨‍🎤 But making music for a living? 💰 Unthinkable. After all, is it really appropriate for a punk rocker to make money with his music? Just when he got a taste of financial success through his music, the gravity of "ULP" (upper limit problem) would bring him back down....

WHYLD22 - Candidly Speaking - Adolpha Cole

3/15/2022
„Why do white people hate black people?” This is an honest question ⁉️ which people visiting Candidly Speaking events might seek answers to. In other contexts, (white) people might read this as an accusation and begin to push back – but not in the intimate space ❤️ Adolpha Cole & her team create for their participants.

WHYLD21 - Exploring the World Awake - with Erik Lorenz

2/15/2022
Have you ever, during your travels, had a conversation that was so beautiful, so rare, so impactful that you wished others could have witnessed it? A fleeting moment in time, sharing your universe with a person whom you will likely never meet again. The stranger at the café in Marrakesh, the trucker in New Zealand, the villager in Tonga. Sharing these precious opportunities of diving into another person’s world, learning about other ways of looking at and spending life is basically the...

Episode 20 - Season 1 Finale With Former Guests Romeo, Francesco, Tom, Bek & Sarah

12/15/2021
How can you tell a season is ending? That’s a question I have asked myself for 19 episodes of WHYLD Podcast 😅 When I first started this podcast, I guess it felt calming to have a built-in drop out option, a natural end in case this creative endeavour was going nowhere. The opportunity to say anytime: “Hey, this is the last episode of Season 1… and you happen to have to wait for some 2 years for the next season to go live”. However, my mentality as a podcaster has shifted from boxed...

Episode 19 - Adopt, Don't Shop (Romanian Dog Rescue) - Delia Botea

11/14/2021
Who needs to do something about it? For Delia Botea, the answer was “Me.” In Romania, a country where there are 600 000 stray dogs roaming the streets, waiting to be captured and very likely killed, Delia made a choice: If no one helps these poor, often malnourished, injured, sick, abandoned souls… she must do it. Once scared of dogs herself, she started rescuing one dog at a time and had all of her family members host one. Soon she was running out of safe havens for her rescues, so she...

Episode 18 - The Blue Collared Woman - Teagan Dowler

10/15/2021
Can you be the same person at work that you are at home? Before brushing off this question, pause and reflect. Why should you even ask yourself this? Why shouldn’t you be able to be yourself at work? Why should this be important, after all? Workplaces are spaces in which we spend a whole lot of our time. It’s where we show up, challenge ourselves and others, learn, experience setbacks, laugh, fight, inspire, join forces, burn or bore out. It is an important space and we deserve to be seen,...

Episode 17 - Unicorn in Uniform (Germany's First Transgender Commander) - Anastasia Biefang

9/15/2021
Do you show your true self at work and in all your relationships? You do not need to struggle with your gender identity to experience difficulties in answering YES to that question. Being ourselves first and foremost – and not what we think is expected of us in our many social roles – can be a courageous act. For Anastasia Biefang, the first transgender commander of the German Armed Forces, it took decades to stop pushing her inner truth back down. After many years of service, she took...

Episode 16 - Are You an Imposter?

8/22/2021
⁠Do you doubt you live up to people's expectations of you? Do you tend to belittle your own successes? Welcome to the club of many.⁠ ⁠Sometimes we call it modesty, sometimes we speak in the name of realism, sometimes we claim to acknowledge the support of others.⁠ But frankly: oftentimes we simply cannot accept our own greatness.⁠ ⁠In this episode, we unpack the so-called IMPOSTER SYNDROME – a psychological phenomenon that has people feeling like they are a fraud. It disproportionately...

Episode 15 - Luck or Fate? No Success Comes By Chance - Romeo Salazar

7/18/2021
Are you holding open the door for fate to enter or do you push it close? Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. Sometimes we hit obstacles, sometimes miracles lift us across them. In this episode, musical theatre performer Romeo Salazar shares his experience of losing the stage to perform on during the Covid pandemic. In this juicy, textured conversation we contrast seemingly mere luck and helping fate find you through your active being and doing. Filipino-born and Catholic-raised Romeo...

Episode 14 - Fear of Not Being Perfect Is Costly

6/20/2021
How much are you willing to sacrifice in order to hide your „imperfections“? We all do it at times. We throw our energy, time, and an impressively creative charade of excuses onto the things we feel insecure about, ashamed of, or „not ready yet“ for. We willingly trade our dreams, opportunities, and belief in ourselves for a chance to hide our imperfections from the people around us. And for the peace in knowing that we cannot fail… because we decided not to try in the first place. This...

5/16/2021
Did you know that up to 1 in 4 recognized pregnancies end in miscarriage? This is something few know about. In school during sex education, we learn how to avoid pregnancies. However, the other side of the medal is rarely spoken about: How to deal with not being able to get pregnant or the child never making it through to being a new, miraculous life on this planet. What does it really mean to experience a miscarriage? What do hormonal contraceptives you took in the past have to do with...

Episode 12 - Loving 2-4-1 - Chris, Sven and Andy

4/18/2021
Can you imagine sharing life with more than one partner? Find the love of your life, get married, buy a house, have kids. This default notion of a desirable, successful path in life is a common theme in society. In this picture, a monogamous “escalator” type relationship plays a central role. However, vowing sexual exclusivity to, loving and living with one partner only is not the sole option. It is estimated that about 4-5 % of people living in the U.S. are practising a consensual...

3/14/2021
Have you ever questioned feeling pity for someone with a disability? This conversation might make you do just that. Kara Scott had been confronted for years with strange neurological symptoms and vague diagnoses that would make a spelling champion break a sweat. Her life changed for good when, on the flight home after a family vacation, paralysis hit from her chest down. She has got every reason to resent her fate, or so one might think. But she won’t buy that. This energetic mum of two...

Episode 10 - Higher Quality Questions, Higher Quality Results

2/14/2021
Does your way of asking questions get you ahead or does it set you back? We pose questions all the time, out of a desire to understand, to connect, to get clearer on a course of action, to challenge others, and a million more reasons. Questions are such a basic component of our linguistic toolkit, rarely do we pay attention to their power. Yet, questions are far from being innocent or incidental. A question has the power to alter the course of a life, conjure up harm and hurt, trigger...

Episode 9 - Sometimes 80 Percent Is Good Enough - Sarah Appelt

1/17/2021
Are you attuned to your inner voice? Can you relate to the feeling of not being able to be your true self in the circumstances you are in? To experiencing pressure, stress, and the resulting effects on your body and mind as you try to meet the expectations of yourself and others? Depending on how deep you are stuck in the rabbit hole, you might think that there is no way out, that you are just not enough to meet the demands, that you’ll have to continue to fight. But be mindful of the fact...
