Do you believe that someone who says offensive things to your face is someone you could probably trust? We are diving deep into our offensive culture today!

Are we subscribing to a fairytale? It’s all about perspective and not masking red flags. 

We are only responsible for ourselves and the easiest person to fool is ourselves. Self-examination is the hardest thing we can do. We CAN do hard things.

Having a 20 year nicotine addiction and overcoming the cigarette mind games we played can be a long process. Seems to be the toughest thing to quit but what it takes for one to finally quit may not work for another.  

We grew up hating that our parents smoked but then picked it up ourselves and had no idea the hold it would have on us. Now just thinking about our kids picking up a cigarette at the age that we did is a devastating th...

Lori and Elisa are exploring the tools that work for reinventing ourselves as we’ve grown more mature. We've noticed that our perspectives have changed and we are living more intentional without adding too much to our plate.

    Sympathy Pains

    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.
