Mama Says Namaste Podcast

Join Nathan and Ashley Logsdon as they walk you down a path of intentional parenting...and living. As they RV the States full time and unschool their 3 daughters, they invite you not to only hear their story, but create your own. They’ll take you from chaos to clarity by understanding personality styles, bringing awareness and intention into your home, not waiting for “one day”, and highlighting how the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us. Each week they deliver a podcast that is under an hour (typically 30 min), diving deep into the topics Ashley writes about on www.MamaSaysNamaste.com.

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
