Many folks deal with anxiety, which can be debilitating at times. But what happens when we let our anxiety become our inspiration? If you deal with anxiety, you know that once you find something that works to help your anxiety, that becomes a life saver and you use it all the time.

I started these Entrepreneur Spotlights for someone exactly like Katey Dnistrian–a little shy, a lot of talented, and far too humble to ever request coming on the show. Plus, I fully believe in supporting artists while they are alive. Katey’s work is centered around embroidery, a fairly difficult past time she’s now turned into a side […]

Every episode is education in its own way, but it’s extremely important to take the opportunity to get educated by an actual educator when that opportunity presents itself. Queer, Gay, LGBT, LGBTQIA+, LGBTQQIAAP. The name for the community has evolved over time and so have we. And the perception of the queer community has evolved […]

Content warning, this episode discusses suicide and the mental health of someone who has passed. But this story contains strength and beauty, and the many ways in which this man will live on for years to come. What does it take to create change? I think of this a lot as many of the people […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is many things: a Bronxite, Latinx, a woman, but what matters the most to me is she acts like a human being. Super Normal isn’t a political show, despite many of the episodes containing politically active guests and topics under attack by the current administration. Super Normal was designed to highlight the humanity […]

Many of us are on a journey to better ourselves and the world. Some of us consider ourselves activists. Some of us participate in political discourse because our identity requires us to. But while we acknowledge that there is necessity for improvement and room to grow, why are we unable to accept some growth ourselves? […]

Sometimes you need to reinvent yourself, which is why we took a month hiatus. BTW I missed you, thank you for being so patient. Other times you know exactly what you need, and you’re just begging for the universe to give it to you. This episode is mostly me obsessing over the art of our […]

Sometimes you meet people because you’re trying to. You might feel the urge to expand your circle, network, or mingle a little. But sometimes you just meet people because you’re supposed to. Bex and I met out of serendipity. We both arrived early to an event and bonded over how the white women running the […]

For some of us our sexual identity is apparent from birth, for others, experimentation, conversation, infatuation, and love can change your orientation at any moment. Sometimes even when you least expect it. During this pride season, it’s important to highlight the experiences of all folks who identify as queer. Those who are or were ever […]

“Be the change you wish to see in the world,” is a corny ass saying, but I’ll be damned if that bitch ain’t the truth. We’ve all thought about ways things could be improved, made up inventions of how a bra could be more comfortable, or a better way to get off of a fucking airplane, […]

Bad pun for a title aside, I am so excited to bring you this episode. Womxn do some pretty great shit, but when womxn find themselves in a place of power and use that power to not only support other womxn, but support other marginalized communities, it’s like this beautiful little sweet spot of love and […]

After a lovely phone call with these two beautiful Canadian souls (one that accidentally cost me $30 in long distance charges) I learned more about the ways we can assist our family and friends with Dementia. So many of us are afraid of aging. You can see it in our anti aging creams, sayings like […]

Some of us have mothers who taught us all there is to know about the world. Other people have the internet. Dealing with your mental health, invisible illnesses, chronic pain, navigating your sexuality, trying to build a career, and still be present in your friendships and relationships can be quite exhausting. For me this manifested […]

What’s a white girl to do to atone for the sins of her middle school self trying to find her place in the world? Make a podcast about it. Yes, even I am guilty of cultural appropriation and I am not proud of it. I’m saying this now. At no point in this episode am […]

Climate Change is happening every day. As we inch closer to our planet’s inevitable death, how can we reverse our acceleration of it? Yesterday was Earth Day and it’s important time of the year for that one girl from high school to remind you that she composts and you don’t. But as your feed gets […]

Cool art, checking your privilege, and AN INSTAGRAM GIVEAWAY! Are you a white woman? Are you constantly filled with white guilt? Don’t know how to make your vacations benefit local communities instead of filling my newsfeed with your white savior Instagram pictures? Then you’re in the right place… Being white is an awkward topic these […]

We are all struggling in our own ways. Everyone is fighting for survival, fighting to find their identity, or fighting through traumas… past and present. And as today’s guest says, “We’re all living the same shit in different shoes.” But we must acknowledge that certain groups of us deal with life from an even more […]

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
