"I want what SHE has" w/ Theresa Lyn Widmann (and formerly Shana Falana) is a weekly live radio show at Radio Kingston in Kingston NY and PODCAST, amplifying women's voices and their stories. We share interviews of women (female identifying humans), seeking to flip the narrative on envy and celebrating the strengths and accomplishments of women we look up to. Women are so often the unsung heroines of a community’s overall health and wellbeing. These women have gifts to share and stories to tell. It's time to listen.
#141 Barbara Sarah "Circle of Friends for the Dying"
Barbara Sarah has worn many hats in her life, always with an effort towards helping others. Today we talk about growing up during WWII, singing to raise money for war bonds, theater, social work, cancer, death, and her Japanese practices that regularly help her stay in a place of gratitude and living each day to her fullest. She's a joy and a force, and I hope you enjoy getting to know her through our conversation!
#140 Leslie Woodward "Edenesque Nutmilks"
Chef Leslie Woodward, CEO/Creator of Edenesque Nutmilks, has been passionate about clean eating, local and seasonal foods for over 20 years. Today we get to talk about her work and her passions and of course how she takes care of herself despite having a full time job and running her up and coming business!
#139 Helen Zuman "Mating in Captivity"
Today I speak with writer, Helen Zuman. We discuss the subject of her memoir, Mating in Captivity, about her time spent in a cult, plus lots more like her journey to trust oneself, the "infinite growth myth," gift circles, her connection to a well balanced eco-village that is doing intentional living well, and how she takes care of herself (no social media!). You really need to read her book to fully appreciate the journey she's been on. Quite an inspiration!
#138 "Naturalist and Educator" Susan Hereth and Honoring the life of RBG
Today I get to speak with Susan Hereth, an educator and naturalist with an extensive resume who works with the Youth Crew at the YMCA Farm Project. We talk about the work she does both at the Farm Project and beyond, counting eels, stewarding bees and remember the late, great Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Went on a personal exploration of gentrification on the show today. Exploring what experts say about it and those who've personally experienced it. Plus, those who have bright ideas about how to avoid the harmful effects of it. Let me know what you think!

Loved the episode with Julia Indichova of Fertile Heart! I especially appreciated Theresa's ability to elicit nourishing insights from Julia, while sharing her own story.
Learning & Living
I had an amazing time sharing my story in the show. I was asked questions that really had me think outside the box. I loved talking with fellow artists learning something new about myself. These women are hardworking all while taking the pleasure to promote other incredible artists.
I want what she has!!!
Shana and Theresa are great and this is a lovely podcast supporting women and their accomplishments. I had the pleasure of being on the show and sharing my story and was met with compassion and inquiry. It was lovely and scary sharing my story on live radio but they held beautiful safe space for me. Thank you for hosting a great podcast!
