Real Talk With Deb & Nia is a mother/daughter intergenerational deep dive into topics both broad and specific: from home-schooling to life-schooling and young adulthood to elder-caregiving. We share our successes, losses, challenges, and solutions with an openness and vulnerability we hope will liberate our audience (and ourselves) to live life free from unnecessary boundaries, judgement and self-flagellation. Real Talk's goal is to encourage more vibrant communication and provide tools and ideas for relationship-building. Join us on this journey into some of the crucial conversations that lay a foundation for a lifetime of intergenerational understanding and abundant mother/daughter love.Our podcast is dedicated to the memory of our beloved mother/grandmother, Connie, who began the vibrant, love-filled, life-affirming conversations that we continue today.
A Different Calling: One Mother’s ADHD Story
ADHD is often cast in a negative light, especially regarding children. Even the word “deficit” speaks to the outdated idea that there is something that one lacks.

Emotional Eating: The Struggle is Real!
