In this episode we work the path to body positivity, with a few #MeToo moments along the way. How does our self image change between adolescence and mid-life? Is it all inevitable? Are we hardwired this way? High heels and push up bras – WHY??? One thing’s for certain: Compassion, wisdom and confidence will set us all free from the confines of body image and probably make the world a better place too ; )
This episode we have a very special guest, Beck. Not Beck of musical fame but a celebrity from our past; a woman who knows herself and her ideals well. We discuss the new Religious Liberty Task Force and religion in relation to authoritarianism. Reminiscing happens, curiosity about our very existence, the Boy Scouts and of course, singing. Also, Vespa chimes in – the newest canine addition to the studio. She’s eager to contribute, licks and all.
Attitude adjustments abound and we discuss the federal legality of CBD oil in conjunction with PayPal, as suggested by a listener. The benefits of cannabis products are explored, peppered with silly stories and a fair amount of giggling. Different ways of anxious thinking and what that looks like – literally. A bag of words, dreams of the apocalypse and singing.
We’ve all had them, heart wrenching moments of embarrassment, times we’ve felt so self conscious and isolated it’s as if the fabric of time has unraveled and revealed our ultimate imperfections to the whole world. A first date, a public rap debacle, a period. Another part of being human.
Music provided by one of Quinn’s many bands, Altadena Hotel.
We’ve had a lot on our minds lately so in this episode we take a break from the heaviness of the current political landscape and explore the diverse landscape of America; the culture it inspires both in regional communities and within ourselves. Road trip stories abound, from our most recent journeys to first encounters from our yesteryears. Lots of ideas are explored, with one truth rising above all else – THE LEFT LANE IS THE PASSING LANE, FOLKS. Dawdle is you must, but please, stay right while you’re doing it.
Also, a concrete example of Reverse Puberty, small acts of kindness and talking to strangers.
