Hindsight's 2020

Hindsight’s 2020 is a podcast that gives voice to the stories and lessons learned during 2020, a year that saw our collective cortisol levels at an all time high! My goal is to share stories in a safe space where it’s ok to be who we are, feel what we feel and to know we’re not alone. To build a community where we can unclench our jaws, let our guard down for just a little while and maybe even have a laugh or two. So let’s lift one another up, learn from each other how to put one foot in front of the other and let the healing begin...because Hindsight’s 2020.

This episode was recorded on May 17, 2021. Little did I know -- 3 weeks later -- my dad would pass away suddenly and unexpectedly. If I'm being honest, I have not listened to this episode in its entirety. Nor have I listened to any of the last five episodes I taped from late April through May; however, I'm dropping all of them (S1 Episodes 15-19) now for my listeners to hear. Their stories deserve to be told and listened to...

Hey, Kim! thanks for being here today. I'll let you go ahead and introduce yourself. 

Hi, Andrea. I am so glad to be here with you also. My name is Kim. I live in New York. I am a mom of three amazing humans who are making their way in the world. They've mostly flown the coop. But I think I've done something right because they're doing pretty good out there in life. I've been married for 20 plus years and for a c...

[00:03:30]No, not for one day. I did not work from home. One moment of it. We got an email the night before saying that we were an essential business and that all of our stores will be operating to the best that we could under the new circumstances with all the safety protocol in place. And we briefed our staff immediately the next day and we've been open ever since.

2:13 Parenting-wise, I have row, row, row'd that boat!

3:35 When our (customers) works were getting shut down, they definitely were very interested in our work remaining open  - understandably - so they could get their work done at home and we could take care of their kids.

4:01 We went with the commercial insurance guideline and we shut 'er down, and I think our daycare parents we're like "Really? You're not gonn...

Show Notes:

2:14 The most difficult thing during that time was the fact there were so many unknowns with the pandemic

2:49 That definitely put me in a spiral in terms of my mental health

3:08 We all know our limitations when it comes to anxiety and stress

4:07 I knew it was nothing like something as intense as a heart attack, but it was an attack of...

2:33 That’s when it started to hit me and I was getting a little bit nervous about things.

4:57 I was really just in survival mode at that point.

5:11 Are we at a point in our relationship where we’re really gonna hunker down together and there’s no end date? Are we going to do this?

5:48 We’re gonna be in this for awhile

4:04 My parents told me right then and there “You cannot talk to the police. You cannot get in trouble”.

4:24 I was afraid to do any kind of mistakes because I immediately equated that with possibly going back to place that I didn’t know anybody or anything about.

4:45 I think that made me work very, very hard bc I knew I needed to be excellent to do anything.

4:57 I had to walk a very fine line and that there was no room for mistakes...

8:08 it was nice because for those three days we got to pretend that he didn’t have cancer.

8:41 Pancreatic cancer is just awful and terrible and you need the most awful drugs to try to penetrate those cells.

3:34 I felt like I hit my limit in terms of caregiving to an extent.

10:31 Smart companies, from my perspective, know that it's so much more expensive to replace someone than to make room for them to get better and take care of themselves.

11:30 I took 6 weeks off toward the end of the year - to me the leave is more of a symptom of the fact that I didn't put myself first for a long, long time. Then I got to the point where I ...

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?


    It’s a lighthearted nightmare in here, weirdos! Morbid is a true crime, creepy history and all things spooky podcast hosted by an autopsy technician and a hairstylist. Join us for a heavy dose of research with a dash of comedy thrown in for flavor.
