    Episode 358: Teen Pregnancy with Nicole Lynn Lewis

    Episode 358: Teen Pregnancy with Nicole Lynn Lewis

    My guest today is Nicole Lynn Lewis. In her book, "PREGNANT GIRL", Lewis tells her story of being a Black teen mother who entered William & Mary College and graduated with honors four years later. Now the founder and CEO of the non-profit Generation Hope (which helps teen parents apply to and stay in college), Lewis writes with candor about the many hard choices she had to make about how to afford college and raise her daughter—and the many ways the higher education and financial aid systems are not built for student parents, especially parents of color. At a time when almost a quarter of college students are also mothers or fathers, PREGNANT GIRL is a moving illustration of how difficult it is to balance these two identities, and what changes could and should be made to help these student parents reach their goals.

    Episode 357: Cancer and Friendship with Shelley Buck and Kathy Curtis

    My guests today are best friends. Shelley Buck, wife of the director of Frozen, lived through something no mother should have to endure - her son's death. After guiding her son Ryder through chemo at 22, he died in a tragic traffic accident just a few months after beating the disease. Her best friend and healing expert, Kathy Curtis, helped Shelley write her son's memoir, Leave Your Light On. Today we are discussing their friendship, how cancer forged an even deeper bond and led Kathy to help pen this memoir and how to fight for the life you want.

    Episode 356: Why Keep a Reading Journal with Anne Bogel

    My guest today is Anne Bogel, who is the creator of the Modern Mrs Darcy blog and host of the popular podcast What Should I Read Next?. This September, Anne is releasing her latest book My Reading Life: A Book Journal, which helps book lovers get more out of their reading lives.  “This journal is meant to capture the history of what you’ve read, to help you reflect on the books you are currently reading, and to help you plan for your future reading life,” said Anne. “I firmly believe that when you get more out of your reading life, your whole life is a little bit better. My hope is that this journal will help you both articulate your reading taste and broaden your literary horizons.” If reading is a priority for you, this journal would be a wonderful way to document your reading journey.
