    219: Not Just A Housewife with Laura Friedman Williams

    Author of the memoir Available: A Memoir of Sex & Dating After a Marriage Ends, Laura Friedman Williams opens up about the loneliness of a stay-at-home mother, what her marriage—and life—looked like when she measured it by being happy enough, what it means to no longer be playing the supporting character in her own life, and the sexual liberation following her divorce that set her on a path of self-expression, self-enhancement, and self-sufficiency.

    218: Lazy Loving with Lil Sebby

    218: Lazy Loving with Lil Sebby

    “That’s literally what it is,” today’s guest recording artist Lil Sebby tells Chelsea 57:25 minutes in, "lazy loving. You’re not fully committed. You’re not ready to ride throughout the ups and downs. And there are going to be down times. It’s inevitable. It’s never just going to be perfect. But once it’s not as fun anymore, they dip. They just dip. Ghost culture.”
    HIGHLIGHTS.
    2:35 — I don’t even know if I should be comfortable being close to you. I’m just looking at you from a distance. You could have COVID. The trust for a common human being was gone.
    5:11 — You know how people say, start before you’re ready? The next big shift I need to make is, start before I know. Start before knowing whether it is going to resonate or go in your favor.
    10:15 — You should never stop because you're not making money. Money is just the cherry on top of the cake. The passion is the cake.
    15:40 — Late in my twenties, I started to see that there was always something beautiful about everyone I looked at. I realized that most everyone we pass on the street has been loved before and I started to get curious about that. Someone has loved them, I wonder why.
    21:30 — Depending on Adderall to give us a false sense of interest in our lives.
    29:15 — Sometimes you don’t really connect or click with someone when you want to. You may see they have their own thing going on outside of you that comes into play. And it shows, it radiates off them. They aren’t ready for love and you don’t want to force that.
    33:10 — I would never change who you are for nobody. Because when you’re changing who you are for somebody else, are you truly happy or are you trying to impress and having to hold back? Because, then, you’re in your head and that’s the worst place to be.
    43:20  — Girls won’t even give dudes a shot these days.
    59 — We don’t need fans. We need believers. We need partners who believe in us.
    1:08:40 — I feel like if you want something, you can get there and get rejected but at least you tried and took the time to get there rather than not going to figure it out. You fail by not trying. You succeeded by trying. So, either way, you win. 
    1:16:00 — I’m more litty than ever. We’re having a lit experience right now because we’re expressing ourselves.

    A world leader in love, conflict resolution and interpersonal relationships, relationship expert and coach Jayson Gaddis is also the author of Getting To Zero: How to Work Through Conflict in Your High-Stakes Relationships and the podcast host of The Relationship School. He joins Chelsea 17 minutes in to talk about getting closer through conflict, softening our internal critic by finding its stories interesting rather than horrible, the vulnerability of being the learner and the shame of being a man who is scared, the two s****y choices that people frame conflict as and the choice to pursue instead, how the gap between our strategic self and true self creates a core inner conflict, what it means to be a warrior, and why parenting is one of the most confronting experiences in our lives.

    Relationship Dynamics Coach, Educator of Effective Communications Strategies, and Founder of Project Equinox, André Paradis and his wife, dancer, choreographer, and director Nancy Paradis join Chelsea 11:30 minutes in to sound the alarm on toxic masculinity and advocate for ballroom dancing in a world full of disco dancers.

    214: Together But Separate with Chris Maxwell

    Unexpectedly diagnosed with a severe case of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Chris Maxwell joins Chelsea 5:45 minutes in to talk about having his ego stripped away while he was in the hands of everyone else, letting go of control and prioritizing connection by becoming relational about everything, how trauma is 1000 points of separation and recovery is 1000 points of reconnection, finding his way back to his wife and learning to spiral upward together as patient and caretaker, and why having our eyes raised to the horizon is essential for thriving not only together but separately.

Unique and thought-provoking!

Never before have I been compelled to write a review for a podcast but this podcast really struck a chord with me. Before listening, I (stereotypically) thought of heartbreak as something that might occur in a relationship with ONLY a romantic partner. (Two people in a relationship “break up” leading to “heartbreak”) However, that is just not the case. We can mourn anyone and anything while simultaneously manifesting a deeper appreciation for the inner strength that triumphed.

Thank you so much

Leading with heart

Chelsea is a thoughtful interviewer who really gets her guests to open up and be vulnerable. She listens and asks relevant questions. I'm sure that her podcast will resonate beautifully with those who can relate to having been hurt and seeing their way through. Being able to coax transformative stories is a superpower that Chelsea certainly has.
