Episode 98 - Firecracker Angie, a Childfree Designer and Activist
Angie Cibis is a 41-year-old freelance graphic designer living in Los Angeles with her husband and rescue pup. A dedicated urbanite despite (or maybe because of) growing up in rural IL, she lives in the middle of Los Angeles by way of Chicago. She has a BA in Graphic Design and a MA in Psychology and credits being childfree for making it simpler to start her own business, be an activist, and travel internationally. And while Angie's gotten plenty of negative comments about being childfree, she's ever-grateful for a life not defined by parenthood. Fuel that Fire!
Episode 97 - Firecracker Nirupama, a Childfree Freelance Writer from India
Nirupama grew up in India and lived there until last year when she moved to the UK. She has been a content writer by profession in the past, but this last year has made her slow down and realize that her interests lie somewhere else, mainly in writing and in learning new languages.
She’s happily married for 9 years to a person she fell in love with 10 years ago. While they never sat down and decided to talk about children, the decision to be childfree was smooth and organic for the both of us. They love being with each other and don’t feel ‘incomplete’ without children.

Hanna was born in Australia, but right now you can find her in Berlin, or somewhere on the road with her campervan @_herbertthevan, her curly-haired husband, and their two dogs, Felix and Baloo.
She’s a yoga teacher, but don’t let that put you off! She keeps it real, and funny, and she started a YouTube channel called 'Real Yoga,' in order to promote a style of yoga that allows you to be yourself. For real.
She practices what she preaches and encourages true authenticity both on and off the mat.

This podcast not only uplifts the stories of childfree women, but prioritizes inclusiveness. I feel safe, respected and valued as I listen to these episodes.
Surrendering the Shame around being Child-free!
Isabel is a genius and a pioneer in her game giving guidance to women to surrender the same around being child-free! I would give this podcast 10 stars if I could!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
In a world that judges women who are not mothers, this podcast reframes the stigma around women who are child-free as being selfish, and focused solely on career, to shifting the perspective around women who have viable reasons around not having children, which should be better understood and embraced in today’s society.
Thank you for stepping up, Isabel, to speak your truth on a woman’s freedoms around being or not being a mother and providing a fresh perspective!
You want to be part of this podcast and this movement! it is going to blow your mind an bring you such great insight! Thank you!
