Ep 28: Motherhood through Adoption with Lindsay Lawler

Ep 28: Motherhood through Adoption with Lindsay Lawler

This episode is for you if you or a loved one has ever struggled through the fertility process, or if you’re interested in the topic of adoption.

I am so happy to share this conversation with one of my dearest friends, Lindsay Lawler. Lindsay and I have been like sisters for nearly two decades, from our freshman college dorm to living together throughout our 20’s in Los Angeles. Still, the topic of fertility and motherhood remained such a sensitive one that we didn’t talk about it much until Lindsay was already walking down the road towards adoption.

Ep 13: Who do you tell?

Ep 13: Who do you tell?

Today’s topic - like many of these prompts - will either give you a buzz of excitement or a lump in your throat. I am aware that lots of things that we talk about on this show can fall either way.

Especially as an adult. How do we do this? Is it lame? Is it private? Will I feel dumb?

Ep 6: Revisiting Judy Blume

This episode is a little bit of a different format. I’m with one of my oldest and dearest friends, Dr. Cara Pence, and we’re revisiting a childhood favorite: Judy Blume.

I have several ideas for a revisit series, where we look at some popular things from our past - books, movies, tv shows, et cetera - and talk about how they affected us and how we feel about them now. So this is the first in that series and we’re looking back at the formative era of pre-pubescent literature that is Judy Blume.

Ep 3: Where do you live?

Ep 3: Where do you live?

This is one of the most basic, get-to-know-you questions, and the answer can vary. Our country, state, city, and neighborhood all say something about us, whether we like it or not. 

On today's episode, we're not just talking about our zip codes, we're talking about how our location is currently affecting who we are. 

I live in Los Angeles, so I have 10 Things To Tell You about my little pocket of L.A.
