Shift Shift Bloom is a podcast examining how people change, why they change, and how they sustain the changes that are most important to them in their everyday lives. Our guests consider themselves change makers, change embracers and change resistors — we’re all somewhere on that spectrum at different times in our lives, aren’t we? Conversations with host Kristen Cerelli explore the impact of mindset, personality, life circumstances, communities of support and sources of inspiration on the process of transformation. Illuminating how change can be both deeply personal and profoundly universal is the show's guiding principle.

Shift Shift Bloom is produced by host Kristen Cerelli and audio engineer Timothy Fall at ActuallyQuiteNice, a full-service media studio. They develop the show in collaboration with Dr. John Lyons, Director of both The Center for Innovation in Population Health at The University of Kentucky, and The Praed Foundation, which supports the development and dissemination of systems improvement strategies called Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management, or TCOM. Online at https://praedfoundation.org, https://tcomconversations.org and https://iph.uky.edu.

Season One new regular episodes drop every Monday from February 14 to April 18, 2022, and are accompanied by "TCOM Takeaways" -- special in-depth discussions between Dr. John Lyons and Kristen Cerelli, that extract common themes, ongoing questions and powerful insights on the topic of transformation. It's safe to say there's no formula for navigating change, but John and Kristen will keep looking for and articulating the universal tenets of the process.

    EP10: Grab the Kids and Go, with African Immigrant "Leonie"

    EP10: Grab the Kids and Go, with African Immigrant "Leonie"

    About this episode:
    Host Kristen Cerelli talks to African immigrant "Leonie" who fled the same abusive marriage to save herself and her children, not once, but twice. In the process she lost her ability to practice medicine with patients, but she found an unwavering strength and ability to "just do it" that puts the cliched Nike slogan in its place.
    About our guest:
    "Leonie" was born in Africa, into a large family that valued education. She attended medical school, practiced gynecology and had two children with a very influential man who, despite his power, did not treat her with the respect she deserved. When the relationship became abusive, she fled with her children and has reinvented herself in both Europe and the US.

    EP9: Strip Down the Layers, with Method Actors Gabe Fazio and Brandy Hotchner

    EP9: Strip Down the Layers, with Method Actors Gabe Fazio and Brandy Hotchner

    About this episode:
    When Dr. John Lyons casually mentioned to host Kristen Cerelli that he'd be interested in hearing what method actors had to say about the process of transformation, Kristen knew just who to call. Enter actor Gabe Fazio and teacher of actors Brandy Hotchner, who share their well worn input on the subject.
    About our guests:
    A native of Long Island, Gabe Fazio epitomizes the passion and sacrifice of the working actor. A lifetime member of The Actors Studio in NYC, Gabe works steadily in theatre, film and television. He originated the role of Mark in Lyle Kessler's play First Born and has appeared on Law & Order, Blue Bloods and Homeland, as well as in the films A Place Beyond the Pines and A Star is Born. Gabe's invisible work with Mark Ruffalo in the HBO series I Know This Much Is True was much lauded by director Derek Cianfrance and writer Wally Lamb.
    After 10 years as a struggling working actor in NYC, Brandy moved to Arizona in 2002. She was just passing through on her way to Los Angeles. New York, after 9/11, had lost its romance and she longed to get back out West. She never made it to LA. During Brandy’s first week in Arizona, she met her husband and now has a family, raising two teenage boys. That was an act of true providence. Brandy often says, “I would not be coaching if life had not interfered with my plans.” Today, she is the owner and Artistic Director of the region's top acting school, Arizona Actors Academy.

    EP8: Walk Through the Door, with Greg Dyke

    EP8: Walk Through the Door, with Greg Dyke

    About this episode:
    Greg Dyke's resume reads like a collage of seemingly unrelated twists and turns -- engineer, pastor, nurse, yak rancher -- but that's only if you're reading it superficially. Spend even a few minutes with Dr. Reverend Dyke and you learn each twist was related to the one that came before, and each turn marked by a deep and abiding relationship with social justice, downward mobility and doing the right thing.
    About our guest:
    Greg Dyke, owner of Zhi-ba Shin-ga Yak Ranch in Wellington, KY has always been a man on a mission. His unusually varied professional life has taken him from engineering to ministry, from upstate New York to inner city New Orleans. But regardless of the terrain, Greg has remained true to the inner compass that always seems to be urging him on to help make things better for others.
