    081: Letting go of perfection and just doing it with Nancy Shadlock

    I've been gone long enough.  After many nudges, the podcast is back!  I'm doing it raw and unedited, but I'm doing it.  The perfectionist part of me is having trouble just letting it be, but I know, the most important part is just showing up!

    Many people have told me this podcast has helped them feel inspired and like they aren't alone, so I know it's important to come back and keep sharing.

    Join me as I share what I've been learning lately and I'd love to hear from you what you've been learning lately.  Drop me a line: nancy@centered.ca

    Joe Boivin returns to the show this week to reminisce with Nancy about their shared experience at a Missionary Kid boarding school in Kenya. Back before either of them had fully come out, Joe describes what it was like as he gradually came to terms with his queerness during that time. As they discuss how their relationship with each other developed throughout the following years, both reflect on how time has allowed them to change in so many ways, all of which have ultimately led up to where they are today.
    After spending many hours of childhood catching insects and looking them up in the encyclopedia, Joe went to college to study Biology. He now has a PhD in Neuroscience and is completing his postdoctoral fellowship at MIT, where his research focuses on how brain cells form connections with each other during development.
    03:50: Joe’s experience at RVA
    00:15: Oranges and sexuality

Tara@RMB ,

Best podcast!

Nance has such a lovely, smooth presence. As an interviewer, she is both comforting and inquisitive. I’m Tara Galeano and featured on episode #3. This was, and still is, one of my favorite podcast interviews. Nance is a natural. Love her.
Oh yes, I sang Diana Ross, not Donna Summers. My apologies.
