#8 Lori Ann King (Author) / Vickie Tanner (Writer, Performer) “Hashtag Me Too”

On today’s show Shana and Theresa break down the #metoo conversation further by looking at the messages they received as young women and how those messages shaped how they’ve responded to men and sexual harassment in their lives.

Special guest, Lori Ann King, writer, author, athlete and health and nutrition coach talks about her personal health journey through a hysterectomy, an oophorectomy, and the sudden onset of surgical menopause. Lori’s book, Come Back Strong, beautifully depicts her challenges through this journey and the ways she’s been able to build back her health and happiness.

Vickie Tanner, a NYC actor, writer and producer, originally from Los Angeles who has worked in film, TV and theatre with Peter Berg, Sir Peter Hall, Donald Margulies and Stacy Cochran. Vickie is the writer and performer of Running Into Me, a solo play which she’s performed in NY, L.A. and Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Vickie shares her story about pursuing her dreams as an actor in NYC.

Self care this week takes us to Shana’s safe place where she follows her process as she’s reminded from her friends who follow theirs. Theresa shares about the balance of light and dark and what that means with accepting our shadow sides as we approach the Spring Equinox next week.

Tune in next week when we welcome special guests, Rachel Collet who will talk about her process in building her own home, and Samantha Stephenson about her life as a touring musician with her husband in the band Frenchy and the Punk.
