Disruptions With Purpose

Disruptions With Purpose

Many of us want to live a life guided by our purpose. Your host, Ami Dehne, believes that intuition, trust, and a willingness to constantly examine and shift our mindset are all keys to living a creative and meaningful life. Ami hosts inspiring and unfiltered conversations with extraordinary folks who have had the courage to disrupt their current thinking to be in greater alignment with their values and their higher purpose. This podcast is about being with our humanity and is a curious investigation about what it takes to walk the path of a life rich with meaning and connection. Disruptor: someone who displaces their current way of thinking and being and has had the willingness to step outside the guardrails of our status quo and traditions to live a life worth living.

    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.
