    Episode 207 - Goodbye For Now, Unruffleds

    Episode 207 - Goodbye For Now, Unruffleds

    After 4+ years, over 200 episodes and 1M downloads, Tammi and Sondra are ready to take an indefinite break from recording the podcast. The pandemic of 2020-21 has invited so many emotions: grief, resilience, liminality. But it has also invited us to question how we do everything. Tammi and Sondra have decided to accept this invitation as a chance to work on individual new projects that could only happen if the decks were cleared. They aren’t shutting anything down, there is a beautiful archive that they hope you will continue to enjoy. And they aren’t saying they won’t pop back in sometime in the future, so that is why, as it’s said, goodbye for now.

A sober staple

Do you have a sober toolbox? I like to have a list of all the things that help me stay sober, which include, essential oils, mantras, deep breathing, calling a friend, and, the Unruffled podcast. I love hearing these women and the amazing people they interview, talk about their journey into living a sober life. It’s inspiring, really. I am so glad I stumbled upon this podcast.
