    I Can Still Feel the Dust Behind My Eyes | Lightning in a Bottle Recap w/ Jon & Christine Garner

    These days, Michele (@michelebacicomedy) is acting a little selfish and scheduling time for herself. She mentions The Power of Habit and her book club failure.
    This week’s guests include Jon Garner, mycologist, lab technician, and educator (@the_meddlingmushroom) and Christine Garner, hair styling professional and business owner of @theGratefullHead. This episode is co-hosted by Michele’s partner, Joseph, engineer and woodworker. The group shares their experience at the California music festival Lightning in a Bottle, including packing tips and how to resume normal life afterwards. They talk about choosing comfort over style and Joseph shares wisdom on Burning Man. They discuss psychedelics as medicine and a teaching tool, balancing out your partner and learning to coexist together, and trips and activities they wish to do in the near future.

    Whoops, Accidentally Poisoned Myself!

    Michele (@michelebacicomedy) is back from vacation and apologizes for going MIA. She shares about her experience at the music festival Lightning in a Bottle, including maintaining uncomfortable eye contact during yoga, deep conversations with a hippie, a near catastrophe from dry ice, epiphanies while dancing, the saving grace of a saltine, playing Frick Frack Blackjack, and the sheer bliss of turning off your phone and being present in the desert.

Michele Rocks!

One of the MANY reasons why I love this podcast is Michele creates a relaxed environment to talk about something that should be at the forefront of all our conversations. Therapy! She takes the stigma out of mental health, creating a safe space for her guests to open up, and the listeners to laugh, learn, and enjoy. Plus she’s hilarious! Keep um coming’ Michele, I’m all ears!

Mental health but make it funny

Mental illness is hard enough with the shame. Thanks for making it funny, Michele!

Consent to Vent Approved!

What a creative platform for comedy and therapy. I was thoroughly entertained and especially enjoyed Kelly and Amanda as guests; they were hilarious and relatable. I really loved the format and found the roulette portion exciting!!! Would recommend 10/10, can’t wait for next weeks episode!!!
