"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.

#153 Deep Thoughts for the New Year with Theresa
Slipping into the New Year with some deep thoughts about the things I think about. Like... revisiting my last year's resolution to practice non-judgment and how I failed at it because of things like Kundalini Yoga and QAnon (the irony is not lost on me that as I was doing my show they were storming the capitol), my adjustment and recommitment to non-judgment inspired by Charles Eisenstein, vibration, serendipity, signs from the Universe, devotion, self-care and starting a book club! Who's in? Seriously, let's pick a book that inspires that we can talk about on the show. Plus, I marry everyone to themselves and share the words of David Foster Wallace that resonate deeply with me. Here's my Youtube Channel if you want to join in the daily 15-17 minute practice. Hope everyone's year is a good one!
#152 Belinda Farrell "Find Your Friggin' Joy"
I recorded this interview early in the year, pre-COVID. As the world seemed to change because of the pandemic, I put it on the shelf for a more appropriate time. As the year was coming to a close, I listened back to my conversation with Belinda Farrell which felt like a much needed healing session and the perfect way to end the year. Belinda shares her adventurous life story and the wisdom she learned along the way including the power of forgiveness, believing in your ability to heal, overcoming fear, releasing the programming in the unconscious mind, cutting cords, Huna and working through the grief of losing her son to a drug overdose. The challenges of the pandemic won't end magically come January 1st, but I hope that we've learned ways to move through the challenges with the support of and by supporting others, to bring greater ease to all. Happy New Year to everyone! Wishing you a joyful 2021!!!

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!
