    Change, falling trees & forgotten spies

    Change, falling trees & forgotten spies

    In this episode of Thick & Thin, we discuss an exciting new change for the podcast (!!!), along with falling trees, trusting your instincts & largely forgotten yet extremely influential American spy, Virginia Hall. Virginia was a one-legged spy who has been called America's greatest spy of World War II, although it’s fairly likely that you’ve never heard of her. We'll change that! // Follow me on IG: instagram.com/katybellotte // SOURCES: https://www.npr.org/2019/04/18/711356336/a-woman-of-no-importance-finally-gets-her-due

    The butterfly effect & making predictions

    The butterfly effect & making predictions

    In this episode of Thick & Thin, we discuss the butterfly effect & the concept of small things making a big difference (or not!). Can the flap of a butterfly's tiny wing in one part of the world create a hurricane in another? Listen and decide for yourself. // Follow me on IG: instagram.com/katybellotte // SOURCES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9UTjtxWWn8

    Being your own lover

    Being your own lover

    In today's episode of Thick & Thin, I recap my birthday, reread old journal entries and reflect on the past year. I then discuss "rebrand" goals of mine for this new year of my life, along with some new learnings I've discovered in "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz. Lastly, I share the story of Maud Stevens Wagner, the first female tattoo artist in the United States. // Follow me on IG: instagram.com/katybellotte // Episode Sources: www.thevintagenews.com ( http://www.thevintagenews.com )

    Good books & bold women

    Good books & bold women

    In this episode of Thick & Thin, I share four of my newest reads, as well as the story of Martha Gellhorn. An author and war correspondent, Martha is largely known for her brief marriage to Ernest Hemingway, but is responsible for much greater things than just spending some time married to a now famous author. “Why should I be a footnote in someone else’s life?” She famously said in an interview. We give her story justice today in this episode of Thick & Thin. // Follow me on IG: instagram.com/katybellotte // EPISODE SOURCES:
