24 episodes

Life is messy, hard and oftentimes hilarious. It is a constant balance between managing the chaos and trying to keep the calm somewhere in the mix. We are all pulled a million directions and need our people to lean on. Amy, Brittany and Katie are three best friends who lovingly refer to each other as “The Council.” When they need advice, a reality check, or someone to listen, they go to their Council; each other. They are three pediatric speech-language pathologists, parents, women, and best friends. They use real, authentic conversations to discuss topics regarding speech pathology, child development, parenting, motherhood, current events, the easy and hard aspects of relationships, and overall humorous events. In each episode, they love to talk and sometimes have deep conversations and big revelations, other times they just drink and laugh until their ab muscles are sore. They invite you to unwind, grab a cup of whatever brings you joy, and become a member of The Council. You will leave these conversations with something in “your cup”- whether it be laughter, new information, inspiration, a question, they welcome you to the Cup of Council Podcast.

    Living Your Best Life with guest Chelsea Skaggs

    Living Your Best Life with guest Chelsea Skaggs

    The Council chats with Chelsea Skaggs, new mom coach, postpartum expert/advocate, and RV traveler to discuss RV travel lifestyle, accepting aging as a privilege, and the importance of being the whole version of yourself. Sit back and reflect on your personal views and experiences with aging, and how society and others have influenced your view on this process. Listen as the women discuss making time for yourself as a parent and how "mom guilt" is really just the pressure that you put on yourself. Chelsea also shares how she and her family made a choice during the early part of the pandemic to leave their home and embark on a cross-country journey where they have been living and traveling in an RV for over a year! This was a very fun, enlightening, and inspiring conversation and we cannot wait to chat with Chelsea again in the future.

    Are you keeping score with your significant other? Learn the secret to breaking the cycle, with Katelyn from The Mother Nurture

    Are you keeping score with your significant other? Learn the secret to breaking the cycle, with Katelyn from The Mother Nurture

    The Council sits down for another visit with Katelyn Denning, a coach for working moms, from The Mother Nurture. You might recognize her from Episode 13, "All I Need is Time". This time, the chat is all about keeping score with your significant other. Who empties the dishwasher most? Who does a terrible job at cleaning off the counter? Who is the keeper of the schedule, the papers, the doctor's appointments, etc.? Katelyn discusses these types of daily household tasks and teaches them the system of evaluating the tasks that are causing strife: "Drop it", "Delegate it", or "Do it with love". The Council and Katelyn also visit some other reflective statements such as "What is it that you are actually wanting?", and "What is the story that you're telling yourself?"

    We are in this together! Explaining our role, and supporting fellow SLPs across settings

    We are in this together! Explaining our role, and supporting fellow SLPs across settings

    The Council brings a conversation topic to the table that can sometimes uncover vulnerabilities.  Joyner and Amy both share some unpleasant experiences with families, and discuss what they learned from those situations. Brittany discusses how as an outpatient SLP, she has an important role to support school-based SLPs by explaining roles to parents.  The Council touches on the importance of caregiver coaching (more to come in future episodes!) as well as some other unique aspects of the SLP field.
