    Quali-Tea Time: Our 2021 Priorities Are Mental Health

    Quali-Tea Time: Our 2021 Priorities Are Mental Health

    Our new segment is called Quali-Tea Time because we're all about a good play on words. These short bits are going to be focused on our daily flow: what we're up to, how we're feeling, and getting vulnerable about the small day-to-day.

    Today, we're talking about mental health in the new year. We're just trying to stay afloat, you know? Jade talks about her struggles with anxiety and depression, and Molly asks about supporting friends in the best way possible. Hopefully, some of this resonates with you.

    We mention Amanda Gorman as well. If you haven't heard her inauguration poem, do yourself a favor.

    Collegiate Athletes & Mental Health with Kaitlyn Sowyrda

    Collegiate Athletes & Mental Health with Kaitlyn Sowyrda

    Today, we are talking about collegiate athletes and mental health with an old friend Kaitlyn Sowyrda. Natalie & I were classmates with Kaitlyn at Grafton High School in Massachusetts. Kaitlyn & I  were captains on the same soccer team our senior year. It's been nearly a decade since the three of us have been in the same (virtual) room.

    Kaitlyn brings a unique perspective on her mental health journey, but one that she speaks to so well that anyone can relate (athlete or not). Check out this episode to learn more about her story.

    You can find Kaitlyn on Instagram.

Andrew Coconato ,

Good vibes inside and out!!

Where do I even begin?! I had the wonderful opportunity to interview with Molly and share my hitchhiking adventures on the podcast. It was my first podcast experience and Molly did a fabulous job of making me comfortably uncomfortable (in the best way). She provided a safe space for me to feel vulnerable and authentically myself. Unpack the Pursuit dives deep into the nitty gritty of pilgrimage. The journey, adventure and “valley of dispair” as Molly calls it. Our episode allowed me to unpack my story more than I knew I needed to. It helped me reflect on my own privilege as a white, queer male. I talked for hours so I am impressed with how she managed to edit it down to 50 minutes! MAGIC!

Soul Filling Goodness.

This podcasts fills my soul. It’s real. It’s genuine. It’s important. I loved being able to share space with powerful women when I was given the chance to speak on it! I feel so grateful it exists. Keep moving the world.
