This is a bit of a different episode format. Earlene and I meet over a glass of wine to take about what’s on our minds. It all started with a conversation we had on Clubhouse about how, post pandemic we get to choose how we show up, how we can re-invent who we want to be, however it somewhat digressed into one part chat, one part rant, with a good smattering of worthwhile takeaways. Heads up, wine was involved. I liked the chill at...

  • How to use your superpower to help others

    This week I share my podcast journey where I finally embrace the notion that it's my show and I can do what I want with it.  I had to work my way through a lot of "shoulds" to get here.

    Why is it we podcasters take so long to get that it's our show and we get to call the shots? While it's all about giving the listeners what they want, we get to determine how we do it.

    It's not just podcasters though, we all li...

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

    • Dr. Death

      We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
