    Steph leaves the pod

    Steph leaves the pod

    Hey Mother F*****s, this is Steph. I’m bowing down from the podcast and Vanessa will keep it alive as a solo podcaster. In this episode, we talk about our business divorce, why I decided to leave, and I answer Vanessa’s lingering questions. I’ve read that this sort of a breakup is called a “conscious uncoupling” and I like the sentiment. I’m just glad to have my old friendship with Vanessa again. I’ll transition out slowly from the pod so you will see me on interviews over the next couple of months. If I’m lucky, I’ll be a guest in future episodes.



    Let’s support Vanessa and watch this bitch fly solo. Podcasting is a lot of work and I look forward to seeing her take on the wonderful beast, like everything she does in her life – with grit and grace.

    Lindsay Byron, Lux ATL + stripper with a PhD

    Lindsay Byron, Lux ATL + stripper with a PhD

    Lux ATL is a former stripper with a PhD in literature. If you're feelin' fancy, you may call her Dr. Lindsay Byron even though she ditched professor life to focus on being an author, a podcaster, a mom of two, a wife, and she hosts world class retreats teaching women sensual movement. Lux ATL turns societal norms upside down and we love her for it. Through her thought-provoking content and captivating storytelling (literally, we were on the edges of our seats when she spoke to us), she inspires everyone who listens and reads her work to embrace their flaws and celebrate their uniqueness. We talk about what it's really like to be a stripper, why she stayed with her stripping career for so long even with a doctorate, and how she drastically transformed her life and work.

    Reyna Beckler + imposter syndrome

    Reyna Beckler + imposter syndrome

    Reyna Beckler runs a thriving yoga studio (also our first sponsor!!!) and has built a loyal customer base yet she has dealt with a phenomenon many of us encounter: imposter syndrome. According to a VeryWell mind article, it “is the psychological experience of feeling like a fake or a phony despite any genuine success that you have achieved. It can show up in the context of work, relationships, friendships, or just overall.”

    Imposter syndrome can affect anyone. Reyna shares her life story to remind us that this mindset is holding us back from our dreams and deprives us from the self-confidence we deserve to feel. We have a feeling that our listeners will resonate with her path, as a child of Mexican immigrants, a survivor of domestic abuse, and a determined woman who carved her own career path in a male-dominated industry before taking the plunge into starting her own business.

    Mikaela de la Myco + psilocybin and mothers

    Mikaela de la Myco + psilocybin and mothers

    Mikaela is a trailblazer who defies norms and we love her courage, her passion, and our educational experience with her on the pod. She is on a mission to provide open-source, community-driven data for a seldom studied area in psychedelic research – mushrooms and mothers. She is currently working on preliminary results from 300 testimonies in the Mothers of the Mushroom survey.

    We talk about psilocybin use as a sacrament and a spiritual medicine, its categorization by the US government as a schedule 1 substance, the history of its use dating back to our ancestors, and its place in the home today.

    Some may think this is a controversial episode and we think it’s enlightening and educational. As always, listen with an open mind.

    Chintu Shah + a West meets East approach to breath

    Chintu Shah + a West meets East approach to breath

    Our modern lives lead us in constant search to chill the F out. Mom rage is a thing. Anxiety and depression are in our regular vernacular. We are stressed. Some of us address these issues with a vacation, a trip to the spa, therapy, meds, and other options. None of these are bad but what if we can address them with something we have with us at all times and is completely free?

    Chintu Shah, an ER doc in Southern California, and a father of 2, joined us to talk about our breath. As you can imagine, his job ain’t no walk in the park. During his shifts, it’s high intensity all the time. Through years of work, he uses his breath to help him regulate his nervous system on overdrive.

    He gives us very practical tips on how to approach our breath. Anyone can do it. No apps are needed. Just a few minutes of your day and a bit of curiosity.

    Nicole Meline + mind, body, spirit mentor

    Nicole Meline + mind, body, spirit mentor

    Nicole is a Peloton founding master instructor, four-time Ironman triathlete, and has spent a decade in NYC as a writing professor at Columbia and Rutgers (she has 4 masters degrees, what!!!). She joined the pod to gives moms words of wisdom on how we can achieve the art of hustle and flow. Oh boy, don’t we all need to hear this one?!

    This interview was a personal favorite for Vanessa because she rides with Nicole on many 5 am rides on her iFIT-enabled bike. Listen to this episode where we talk about limiting beliefs, growing courage in our vulnerability, and how it all deepens as we age.

    And even though Nicole is a mentor for the mind, body and spirit, we love how she still got vulnerable with our questions around her personal baggage and f*ck ups.

Worth your time!

Love the topics and how multidimensional these topics and conversations flow. These two moms are natural storytellers, curious about the “why” behind human connections and humorous. There is joy and authenticity in this space. Highly recommend you make time for this!
