    Do you remember the reese's peanut butter cup commercial where peanut butter bumped in to chocolate and --wow, something yummy was born?

    Well, this sort of happened with Michael's home recording of Bach and my podcast about how terrifying it feels to put my woo-woo, fifth dimensional a*s out here.

    Somehow Michael and I ended up blending our very vulnerable recordings and you get a weirdly beautiful elevated story!

    True story of how I shut down my business and went outside to get acquainted with the trees.

    About a year and a half ago, my True Self told me that my real work was at the earthy deep root level--not at the analytical level. 

    She told me I was so tired because I was fighting myself--instead of listening to my inner wisdom.

      If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

      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?
