Steph leaves the pod

5/13/2024
Hey Mother Fuckers, this is Steph. I’m bowing down from the podcast and Vanessa will keep it alive as a solo podcaster. In this episode, we talk about our business divorce, why I decided to leave, and I answer Vanessa’s lingering questions. I’ve read that this sort of a breakup is called a “conscious uncoupling” and I like the sentiment. I’m just glad to have my old friendship with Vanessa again. I’ll transition out slowly from the pod so you will see me on interviews over the next couple of months. If I’m lucky, I’ll be a guest in future episodes. Let’s support Vanessa and watch this bitch fly solo. Podcasting is a lot of work and I look forward to seeing her take on the wonderful beast, like everything she does in her life – with grit and grace.

Lindsay Byron, Lux ATL + stripper with a PhD

5/6/2024
Lux ATL is a former stripper with a PhD in literature. If you're feelin' fancy, you may call her Dr. Lindsay Byron even though she ditched professor life to focus on being an author, a podcaster, a mom of two, a wife, and she hosts world class retreats teaching women sensual movement. Lux ATL turns societal norms upside down and we love her for it. Through her thought-provoking content and captivating storytelling (literally, we were on the edges of our seats when she spoke to us), she inspires everyone who listens and reads her work to embrace their flaws and celebrate their uniqueness. We talk about what it's really like to be a stripper, why she stayed with her stripping career for so long even with a doctorate, and how she drastically transformed her life and work.

Reyna Beckler + imposter syndrome

4/29/2024
Reyna Beckler runs a thriving yoga studio (also our first sponsor!!!) and has built a loyal customer base yet she has dealt with a phenomenon many of us encounter: imposter syndrome. According to a VeryWell mind article, it “is the psychological experience of feeling like a fake or a phony despite any genuine success that you have achieved. It can show up in the context of work, relationships, friendships, or just overall.” Imposter syndrome can affect anyone. Reyna shares her life story to remind us that this mindset is holding us back from our dreams and deprives us from the self-confidence we deserve to feel. We have a feeling that our listeners will resonate with her path, as a child of Mexican immigrants, a survivor of domestic abuse, and a determined woman who carved her own career path in a male-dominated industry before taking the plunge into starting her own business.

Mikaela de la Myco + psilocybin and mothers

4/22/2024
Mikaela is a trailblazer who defies norms and we love her courage, her passion, and our educational experience with her on the pod. She is on a mission to provide open-source, community-driven data for a seldom studied area in psychedelic research – mushrooms and mothers. She is currently working on preliminary results from 300 testimonies in the Mothers of the Mushroom survey. We talk about psilocybin use as a sacrament and a spiritual medicine, its categorization by the US government as a schedule 1 substance, the history of its use dating back to our ancestors, and its place in the home today. Some may think this is a controversial episode and we think it’s enlightening and educational. As always, listen with an open mind.

Chintu Shah + a West meets East approach to breath

4/15/2024
Our modern lives lead us in constant search to chill the F out. Mom rage is a thing. Anxiety and depression are in our regular vernacular. We are stressed. Some of us address these issues with a vacation, a trip to the spa, therapy, meds, and other options. None of these are bad but what if we can address them with something we have with us at all times and is completely free? Chintu Shah, an ER doc in Southern California, and a father of 2, joined us to talk about our breath. As you can imagine, his job ain’t no walk in the park. During his shifts, it’s high intensity all the time. Through years of work, he uses his breath to help him regulate his nervous system on overdrive. He gives us very practical tips on how to approach our breath. Anyone can do it. No apps are needed. Just a few minutes of your day and a bit of curiosity.

Nicole is a Peloton founding master instructor, four-time Ironman triathlete, and has spent a decade in NYC as a writing professor at Columbia and Rutgers (she has 4 masters degrees, what!!!). She joined the pod to gives moms words of wisdom on how we can achieve the art of hustle and flow. Oh boy, don’t we all need to hear this one?! This interview was a personal favorite for Vanessa because she rides with Nicole on many 5 am rides on her iFIT-enabled bike. Listen to this episode where we talk about limiting beliefs, growing courage in our vulnerability, and how it all deepens as we age. And even though Nicole is a mentor for the mind, body and spirit, we love how she still got vulnerable with our questions around her personal baggage and f*ck ups.

Anaya Rosado-Malavé + suicide-attempt survivor

4/1/2024
What’s it like to grow up in Generation Z? Often labeled as the lonely generation, the young adults of our society grew up in a confusing time, warping their sense of belonging, self, and community with the help of the Internet and social media. We spoke to Anaya, who is a beautiful soul and an open book. She gets in-depth about a topic we explored last week – suicide. She is a suicide-attempt survivor and she bravely told us about her struggles with mental illness and how she got help (with so much support from her mother). She also gives helpful tips for parents – from a child’s POV – on how to talk to your kids struggling. Anaya was fortunate to attend a rehabilitation center and she shares what she learned from her time there and how listeners also struggling can add these options to their wellness toolkit. In our previous episode, we talked to a mother whose son died by suicide. Let’s continue to learn and bring awareness to suicide, the second leading cause of death of our young generation.

Julia Wilkinson + losing a child to suicide

3/25/2024
Julia’s son, Kyle, died by suicide at age 22. Steph found her on the writer platform, Substack, where she writes about mental illness, suicide, and alternative treatments for depression. She wrote about recent statistics: “Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people in the US — those ages 10 to 14 and 25 to 34.” Did you know that nearly 800,000 people a year die by suicide worldwide? How do we change this number? Could an answer be to bring more awareness to alternative treatments, methods, and therapies? We discuss this in-depth in the episode. Julia wants more awareness of a topic we do not talk about enough. So here we are, doing what we can. This episode may be hard to hear but it’s important for us to listen. We discuss her experience working with doctors and the healthcare system when it comes to mental illness and how she would do it differently if she had another chance with Kyle today.

Shana Minei Spence + rethinking our relationship with food

3/18/2024
Shana has opened our eyes on how we might want to think, act, and talk about food in our homes. 22% of children and adolescents worldwide show disordered eating, according to JAMA Pediatrics. What if there’s a better way for us to have a relationship with food? A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Shana gives an approachable look at wellness topics that are inclusive, non diet, and weight neutral, all with an intersectionality of social justice. What does healthy really mean? What if we no longer shame foods? What if we reframe how we talk or look at our diets? A lot of this is a practice of unlearning what we’ve grown up with, what society and social media and influencers shove in our faces — on how to eat, how to look, how to be “healthy.” We invite you to keep an open mind, for you and your families.

We talked to the thoughtful, lovely and elegant Jeanne-Marie to explore why one of these professionals might be a great option for your birth, no matter where you plan on having your baby – at a hospital, a birth center, or at home. We like to think of a doula as your birth experience’s COO, the homie that will always have your back, and your bedside therapist. We talk about the role of the doula (they are not just for mom!) and how to find one that works for you. According to Dona international, a doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to their client before, during and shortly after childbirth to help them achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

Julie Stotlar + helping families grieve child loss

In 2000, Julie Stotlar’s 6-year-old daughter, Lauren, was killed by the school bus that took her to school every day. In their grieving process, Julie and her husband found that the support available just didn’t resonate. They found that the most helpful way to support families was connecting them with others who had been through a similar loss. Vanessa read about Julie’s story in the book by internationally acclaimed spiritual medium Rebecca Rosen, called What’s Your Heaven? She was so touched by Julie’s story and how she created hope out of tragedy through her organization GrieveWell and we are so honored she came to talk to us on the pod. We talk about unimaginable loss, grief, and healing. She gives us tips on how to make a shittier day even slightly better. Some of these include singing even if you suck at singing, yoga, going outside, and more.

Grace Spath + sustainable project (mom)way

2/19/2024
In America alone, an estimated 11.3 million tons of textile waste – equivalent to 85% of all textiles – end up in landfills on a yearly basis (source: EPA). Today’s guest, Grace Spath has many incredible talents as an artist, fiber artist, fashion designer, master of sewing textiles – and she’s made it her mission to honor nature and our environment while she makes these works of art. She is a true inspiration to create mindfully. She wrote on her Etsy shop, ShopNeedlesandSpines, “When I became pregnant with my first child my husband and I stated that our life and our interests were to continue. Having children changes your life in so many ways, we didn’t feel it should have to change the things we enjoy doing and who we are at our core.” That’s right, sister! You do you! We discuss how she makes time for what she loves to do. She draws, dyes fabrics and fibers from nature, she shares her process of upcycling stuff that would otherwise be considered as “trash” into really rad new pieces, and she talks in-depth about being part of San Diego Fashion Week. Grace has lit up a creative fire in us and makes us think about our clothing consumption (thrifting and secondhand shopping is cool, guys!). We have a feeling she might inspire you, too.

Anita Coyle + “widow we do now” with 4 kids?

2/12/2024
Anita has been a widow since January 3, 2019, when her husband Jason, died of sudden cardiac death while lap swimming. They were married for 19 years. She is a mom to 4 kids and gets very honest about how she does it all after her husband’s death. Spoiler: she doesn’t, and it’s refreshing. This badass woman has been on the cover of Triathlete magazine and uses physical activity as her outlet. You can find her mountain biking and racing off-road triathlons. Since she talks about death often (she co-hosts the cleverly named podcast Widow We Do Now), she has seen so much heartache in the grief process because spouses and families aren’t prepared for an untimely death. It can happen to anyone, even though we don’t want to believe it could. Listen for her practical tips. Also, this woman is funny! We didn’t think having a mom on such a sad topic could be so lighthearted.
