    S02E19: Bobby Hedglin-Taylor - From the circus to the bookshelf with love and laughter

    Bobby Hedglin-Taylor is one of those people that brightens any room.  His anecdotes are so incredible that they would be difficult to believe from anyone less humble!  Circus, theater, television, books, you name it and Bobby's been involved!  While he never name drops it is clear he's been in some of the most incredible places with some amazing people.  High on the that list - his mom!  Bobby has written an incredible homage to his mother's humor, perspective, and memory called "#ShitMyMamaSays".  It's hilarious, and moving, and a bundle of catharsis in one place.  Here's what he says about it:  

    A little about me: Bobby Hedglin-Taylor, a circus and aerial designer who has worked on and off Broadway, in summer stock and regional theater as well as rock concerts and cruise ships, has just published his first book! Bobby's book is a tribute to his late mother called #ShitMyMamaSays-a humorous look at life while dealing with dementia. Now available on Amazon. In a recent podcast interview the host called him the "multi-hyphenated artist". Indeed he is! Trapeze artist, actor, dancer, singer, comic are only a few of those hyphens! Now adding author to his extended list! After his mother showed signs of dementia, Bobby had to take on the gut wrenching task of moving his mother into a nursing home. She was a spitfire with a mouth like a truck driver. To deal with the emotion and guilt Bobby took his mom's pithy sayings and shared them on social media. Sharing with the Hashtag #ShitMyMamaSays. This became a humorous way to deal with the stress and connect with others who have traveled the same path. After losing his mother at the beginning of the pandemic and suffering with Covid-19 himself Bobby Hedglin-Taylor began to write and in the 16 months of quarantine wrote two books to memorialize her amazing sense of humor. Bobby hopes that you will enjoy the first installment having his mother coming to life through these quotes and her incredible spirit. 

    #ShitMyMamaSays- A humorous look at life while dealing with dementia. In loving memory of my Mom, Mary Lou. Available now on Amazon!

    S02E18: Lady Mekaella - Proving that smart, determined women can change anything... even repressive standards of beauty.

    S02E18: Lady Mekaella - Proving that smart, determined women can change anything... even repressive standards of beauty.

    If you're a fan (even a casual one) of Lady Mekaella, you've seen a lot more of her than you have most of our other guests.  Her talents are varied, to say the least, including costume design, stilt walking, fire eating, dance, singing, and so so much more.  There is no way to see the vibrant and imaginative costumes she creates and not be clear of how exceptionally gifted she is as a seamstress.  Lady Mekaella uses all of these formidable talents in her nerdlesque shows, and self-describes as a stripper.  Brassy and unapologetic she embraces her profession and seems to revel in the art, power play, and (at least a little) the inevitable pearl-clutching that job elicits from some.

    Lady Mekaella is stunning.  Her photos appearing in your Instagram, FB, or any other feed will stop you in your tracks every time just from the sheer beauty of the images.  That's not accidental.  She works hard to get the pictures perfect, the costumes vibrant, the lighting exact, and then to add just enough personality and zazz to bring it all together.  She does all of that, very successfully, in a body that is not what mainstream media tells us is ideal.  She does it in a real body with curves, and wiggles, and she makes it look incredible.

    Here's how she describes herself:

    “The Fangirl with Fangirls” & five-time award winner also known as " Ocala's Grande Duchess of Burlesque" as dubbed by a local theatre director, Lady Mekaella has made a name for herself in comedic storytelling acts. whether in Classical or Nerdlesque (Cosplay Burlesque) she creates a theatrical experience in each of her performances. Available for highly trained & fully insured dangerous acts with fire, stilts, & even Human Blockhead & Bed of Nails as well as a sassy Mistress of Ceremonies, Lady Mekaella is sure to please your audiences. After over 15 years of experience in traditional Theatre, 4 years of college arts studies, Lady Mekaella now only focuses on nightlife entertainment in her vaudeville & geek niches, whether stage productions or atmosphere bookings. She is also the producer for Ocala, Florida's Longest running, full length, body positive, Burlesque show that made national headlines; The Marion at Midnight Series, a regular spectacle that sold out an over 300+ seated historical theatre, as well as other more intimate productions. She travels as far south as Miami, FL & as far north as New Orleans, but contracts with travel are negotiable! She has worked with over 5 troupes in Florida & Louisiana & teaches workshops on a range of subjects from Body-Positivity/self-love as a performer to the business savvy of being a producer & self-marketing on a performer’s realistic budget. She is also the founder of the charitable organization United Universes, a Cosplay for A Cause Project where cosplayers give back to the community from fundraisers to hospital visits. When not onstage She is a costumer and contributing SFX artist for Mertailor Studios.

    S02E17: Reketta Peterson - Revolutionizing healthcare practice for minorities... all the way from Alaska~

    S02E17: Reketta Peterson - Revolutionizing healthcare practice for minorities... all the way from Alaska~

    When most of us think of exceptional thought leaders driving an agenda of inclusiveness and trying to force the medical establishment to be better, do better, and treat better - especially those who come from minority groups we don't usually picture a fierce Black woman, who is a health practitioner in Alaska.  Heck, most of us probably didn't realize there ARE Black women in Alaska (with right around 3% of the Alaskan population being Black there is a reason for that).  Yet, there she is.  Reketta Peterson and her practice, Arise Counselling is helping Alaskan citizens stay "Boo'd Up" - building connections and helping people maintain social networks in a time that we're all struggling to remember how to engage with others. 

    As a BIPOC Health Equity Consultant Reketta does something just as important, at a systemic level.  Here's how she describes it:

    At the root of poor quality services lies subtle and often overlooked discriminatory practices stemming from Medical Racism, Gender bias, and Weight Discrimination.

    As your consultant, I take the time to look at your organization’s specific needs for success in order to curate an experience that positively impacts staff and clients.

    As a note to listeners, in this episode Michele and Reketta talk about some deeply personal and potentially triggering topics including post partum depression, and SIDS. While they bring it to a healthy place we want people to be warned about it.

    S02E16: Tasha Sattler - Creating wearable art for movement artists

    S02E16: Tasha Sattler - Creating wearable art for movement artists

    What is art?  Do you think of paintings?  Sculpture?  Art takes so many forms and functions within our community and means different things to everyone.  Beautiful, hand-crafted functional things like jewelry, ceramics, and textiles hold a special place as art that we can engage with everyday.  Tasha Sattler not only makes wearable art, in the form of jewelry, she specializes in creating it for dancers!  During this conversation Tasha spills all the insider tea about the fine jewelry biz.  From diamonds to platinum, and how to be a great customer.  She's hilarious and down to earth - but above all insanely talented.  Hopefully this episode will inspire you to look for something bespoke, perhaps custom from Tasha or someone like her, when you're next in the market for a special, beautiful item.

    Here's  more about Tash in her own words:

    Growing up I was a really imaginative and creative kid. At 15, I began working in a local jewelry store where I spent a lot of time learning the ins and outs of diamonds, gemstones and fine jewelry.  After university, I travelled for a few years but kept being pulled back to jewelry. I felt that jewelry design and goldsmithing could be the perfect blend of having a job that is both in demand but also allowed me to be creative everyday.

    I graduated from FVCC in Kalispell, Montana in 2008 with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Goldsmithing and Jewelry Arts as well as an Associate of Applied Science Degree in in 3D Jewelry Design and Production. Since then I have worked as a bench jeweler, training under multiple goldsmiths in various disciplines, with the majority of my career being in fine jewelry repair, diamond jewelry and engagement ring manufacturing.

    A few years ago it was brought to my attention by some dancer friends of mine, how little jewelry was available on the market that represented the lifestyle of serious professional dancers. Most dance genres, other than ballet, are barely represented and there is even less currently available for male dancers. If dance is your life and you have spent years training and practicing, there should be an option available other than jewelry designed for five year old ballerinas shouldn’t there?

    I not only wanted to reflect the passion of dancers with our collections, but I really feel that in a world full of mass production and fast fashion you deserve something better. So I set out to create a line of jewelry that is high quality, hand crafted and timeless. Made from precious metal in small hand finished batches, it is meant to be a true reflection on the outside of how you feel on the inside.

    When I am not in the jewelry studio, yeah right like that happens, you can find me hanging out with my amazing husband Shawn, our two little girls Elyse and Lydia, and my stepson Nate (otherwise known as my free gift with purchase).
