    Hello from the dead. We are still here, messing around per usual and dropping a random episode. That's all I'll say. If you want to drop a line, the podcast email is still up meltdowncitypodcast@gmail.com, but the website has been retired.
    Hope you are all well.

    This is the End. Thank You and Goodnight.

    This is the End. Thank You and Goodnight.

    Well, we have decided to call it quits and press pause on The Meltdown City Podcast. This has been the best and most fun adventure for both of us. We are so grateful for anyone who has ever listened, liked us, supported us or been a guest on the show. We could not have done it without you.
    On this episode, this very last episode, we definitely hit all of the emotions. We talk about our journey, this experience, where we were started in the beginning and where we have come. We take the time to thank a bunch of people and we know we didn't hit everyone.
    We also talk about what is going on in the world with George Floyd's death and racism in America. Black Lives Matter. All lives will matter when black lives matter. We need to do better. Check out the BLM website https://blacklivesmatter.com/ (here). Check out this https://medium.com/equality-includes-you/what-white-people-can-do-for-racial-justice-f2d18b0e0234 (resource) for what you can do if you are white and how you can support racial justice.
    We honestly love you all. We will miss hearing from you but you can reach me, Nicole https://www.instagram.com/nicolejohnson.rn/ (@nicolejohnson.rn) on Instagram. You can reach Ali https://www.instagram.com/alisundet/ (@alisundet) on Instagram. I'll keep monitoring the email meltdowncitypodcast@gmail.com and we'll leave the episodes up.
    Remember, you can shake things up and you can start over. If you are not happy, keep digging and working on what you are after. You are worth it. Your dreams are worth it.
    We love you.
    Peace Out,
    Nic and Ali

Inspiring and entertaining!

I’ve been listening from the beginning and look forward to each new episode. The co-hosts are open and honest about their journeys to figure out what comes next in their lives. They bring on great guests and talk about mindfulness, entrepreneurship, travel, health (mental and physical), family, and anything else that comes up. Their stories are funny and poignant and inspiring. I credit them in part for getting me on track with a daily meditation practice. 🧘‍♀️😀
Peace out!

Fresh and funny

Beware: if you listen to this podcast, you WILL laugh, and you WILL be inspired and you WILL end each episode feeling awesome from both those things (and you also might quite possibly be excited about the fact that your life may take on a whole new trajectory). Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

MVPs!
