Mother-daughter duo Karen and Jamie Zelermyer are going back to the land to figure out what the hell happened. Named a 2022 Tribeca Film Festival official selection for audio storytelling, I Was Never There is as much true crime show as it is an ode to Appalachian countercultural movements of the 1970s and 1980s. Listen wherever you get your podcasts.

Fantastic starting block for the week

Somehow Diana’s guests and questions always resonate and apply to what is going on in my week. The questions are impactful and never feel scripted. Diana makes me better at asking and answering questions too! I give feedback to and receive feedback from men every day and it is refreshing to hear how other women have approached this — removing obstacles that may be holding them back — and how I can do the same.
