Today we talk hair and age appropriate hair cuts. Guest KayCee Wimbish tells us about starting an urban farm and how to expand food access. Second guest Sammi Niss shares her process working through cancer and chemo at the age of 27 and releasing a solo album. Pssst, she’s a drummer and then some.
Today we catch up on things, Shana in the recording studio and the emotions that come up around that, and Theresa and “babygate.” Warning, lots of emotions around trying to conceive. We’re then joined by guest Liz Harrington, wife, Mom, pollinator for the Hudson Valley’s local currency who talks about leaving NYC behind to build her dream life upstate. Our second guest is Kim Field, singer and bass player for the band, The Stargazer Lilies. Amidst the ups and downs of musicianhood, Kim too made the leap from NYC to the Poconos in search of a…yep, a different lifestyle.
On today’s show, Shana and Theresa catch up with each other. Shana talks about her week in the studio recording her new album and on the emotions that come up thinking about whether this is her last one. Theresa gets a little vulnerable talking about the saga of setting up a baby gate for other Mom’s at the yoga studio as she works through her own emotions of trying to have a baby. Tissues may be needed.
Special in studio guest, Liz Harrington, Mom, Wife, pollinator for Hudson Valley’s local currency, community builder, and innovator talks about how she was able to leave NYC behind and is in the process of building her dream life in the Hudson Valley. After a life threatening birth with her second child, she and her family refocused their priorities, downsized, and started looking to community for support and nourishment. Liz and her cheerleading attitude is an inspiration to us all!
We also hear from Kim Field, singer and bass player for shoegaze band, The Stargazer Lilies. Kim also made the big leap away from NYC to the Poconos, PA looking for a different lifestyle. She shares the ups and downs of being a musician and how she overcomes those challenges to pursue her dreams.
