Ben DeHan Music: Don't Embrace the Fear
Join Baltimore music sensation Ben DeHan in a heartfelt interview about rediscovering music and discovering love during COVID. Ben left his traditional job to start his own music group, and during that journey met his finance. When her mom dropped her cello off at their apartment, Ben's music -- and his life -- would never be the same. She became the one who whispers in his ear to not embrace the fear, and together they blend punk and the strings of her cello into rhythm that lifts you up and makes you want to dance -- or at least jog -- down Boston Street, past Canton, through Fells Point, right to the Inner Harbor.
Angela Schwartz: Finding Yoga Stillness
Yoga instructor Angela Schwartz sits with Mike in a far-reaching interview exploring yoga, stillness and breath. An old family friend, Angela began teaching yoga right before the pandemic, and when her yoga studio closed, she scrambled to find her community. She didn't just find a community, Angela built a community. She brought yoga enthusiasts together from across the world -- she brought yoga teachers together from all seven continents -- and launched the Day of International Yoga. Angela describes building her community, the advantages of finding stillness and breath during COVID, and her overreaching philosophy about Yoga, choice, and well being.
