Amanda C. Riley lied about having cancer for years and took money from many of her blog followers, family, friends, and acquaintances. Her lying started way before her cancer journey, in fact it seems her whole life was one big lie. 

We do our best to summarize this wild ride, but you can Listen to the full episode of the Scamanda podcast here.

Why did she live this massive lie? What caused her to create this fake world? We don’t k...

Sometimes we meet people once and we immediately know they are “our people.” That is how Sarah and I both felt after our first time on “Talk Pittsburgh” with Heather Abraham. We connected with her in a real way during a quick six minute segment.

Heather is as kind, as real, and as intelligent in real life as she comes across on TV. She interviews multiple guests on both “Pittsburgh Today Live” AND “Talk Pittsburgh” every single day...

When big things happen to us, we beat cancer or we lose our husband, we BECOME a “Cancer Survivor” and a “Widow.” How long do we carry that name tag around? Is it always going to be at the top of the list when describing ourselves? 

Sometimes when tragedy occurs we become it because it is the biggest thing in our lives for the time being. It changes us in ways nothing else can. It affects the way others treat and view us. It affect...

The pandemic changed things for workplaces in so many ways, the way mental health is treated is just one of them. Often, in the workplace today,  people talk more about how they are actually doing, sharing about their mental health, and possibly their mental illnesses. This isn’t always a good thing though. An article in the Wall Street Journal last month, discussing the downside of bringing your whole self to the workplace had us ...

As we continue through Mental Health Awareness Month we dig into grief on this week’s episode. Post production after a little Google search, we realized that Prolonged Grief Disorder is actually in the DSM-5.  So, Sarah was right when she said it should be its own mental illness. 

Diagnosis or not, grief is a sneaky b*tch. Grief isn’t linear, the pain ebbs and flows. Important days like The Death Anniversary, Birthday, and holidays...

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we are here to talk about it. Mental health, mental illness, and burnout are the hot topics of the day.

Before that, we share our “behind the scenes” stories about our first time on live television. Once we got in the studio, we were totally fine, but before that…it was a different story. One of us shaved off half an eyebrow and the other nearly lost a shoe in a sewer grate.

We started this ...

We have talked about a lot of topics these past 120 episodes, but this one, which affects over 50% of the population, is not one we have tackled before. Divorce can be painful, tricky, and complicated. Luckily, Dr. Katie is here to help us navigate this challenging topic. 

Dr. Katie shares advice as a professional as well as someone who has personal experience with divorce. We hope this conversation helps anyone who is experiencing...

Do you have that person at work who tends to be rude no matter what you do? What happens when there is tension in the air? How do you handle conflict? Most adults like to ignore, run and hide, or talk to others about it. If that is you, you are not alone. Promise. But there might be a better way.

Our friend Jessi joins us again on the podcast. This time she is sharing her super power, communicating in a healthy way with others. She...

You have heard it here a million and one times, the mental health care system in our country is broken. We often talk about it on the show, but it is great to hear other perspectives and experiences.
