    220: A Day in The Life of A Woman of Color

    Tatyana Taylor from the Cats and Dogs podcast joins me to have a real and raw conversation about her daily experiences being a black woman in America.  The fears and changes she has to make to just simply live or have a job, really opened my eyes to the challenges someone like her faces that most of us don't have to face.  She breaks down the stereotypes of the "strong black woman" or the "angry black woman," and makes you think beyond the narrow view that has been perpetuated for so long.

    218: Seven Deadly Sinners Trailer - My New True Crime Show!

    218: Seven Deadly Sinners Trailer - My New True Crime Show!

    Sinner’s are often people who believe they deserve everything little thing they desire. And hurting others along the way….well that’s just road kill. On a small scale, it’s scary, but on the scale these people have done it, it’s down right evil. Religion, Church, Preachers, can be your saving grace, sure. But what if, Preachers, used your trusting ear, for their down right dirty deeds and they did it in plain sight. On TV, in your parish, in your own home. Trickery, sales tactics, and a heavy lack of guilt made for a cast of greedy gluttons with pay to pray ministries signing their followers up, into debt with God. These narcissists got high on money, sex, & power. All Under the guise that God talks to them. They preach a phony gospel on the world’s stage, but what happened behind the scenes their sins will make your skin crawl.

    In Season 1 we uncover 7 Deadly Sins of Power Hungry Preachers. I’m Rachael O’Brien, the creator and Host of 7 Deadly Sinners and I'll be guiding you on this hellish journey. So close your eyes, bow your heads and buckle up.

Love!

Love this girl! Her humor and her wit is so amazing, and she is such a sweet human.

Stacy Laine ,

Love!!!

I love this podcast. She is so relatable and humble. I’ve loved walking through her love life as a fan! Keep them coming!!!

I’m saddened by the recent negative reviews. It seems as if those are from people that don’t actually listen to this podcast. It’s ok to like Stassi and Rachael and Kristen. Remember all we see is what the media allows us to see. Protecting yourself and career is not throwing someone under the bus. Rachael isn’t on VPR, remember that.

Rachel is very raw and real

I’ve been listening to Rachel for quite some time now and have loved how true and raw she is. She is all about personal growth and positivity, that’s why I love her so much. I am seeing a lot of hate from VPR fans, of which I am one and a super fan of Stassi’s. As a 37 year old female, I have personally outgrown relationships that were once very close and I thought they’d last a lifetime - but people change and it’s ok to go separate ways. I recently learned A LOT about what Rachel went through back in 2018 via some of the VPR cast and others involved with the cast which helped me learn a lot about Rachel and made me really empathize with her. She kept one name private but I quickly figured out who it was, but I recommend checking it out for those who are leaving all of these negative reviews out of hate. Learn to have compassion and understand there are always 3 sides to every story. Hatred and mean comments does nothing for anybody but hurt the person it’s about. Tsk tsk. Go listen to The HoneyDew episode 52 to get a huge part of the story. And it’s ok if someone who was friends with someone doesn’t agree with their actions. It’s ok.
