This is my li'l podcast where I'll be sharing self-publishing tips, sharing stories from my life, philosophizing ideas to chew on and...I dunno...identify with?
Subjects tackled may sometimes, often, or never include: the world today (Because what is UP?) how to find happiness (And I dunno, keep it?) How do I do this? (This whole THIS!) Getting over trauma (Because seriously.) Manifesting stuff (Always a fun subject we all care about.) Letting go of the past (Thank God that’s over) Living in the Now (Wait, now? No, now. Now? Yes, Now…I think?)
Welcome to byte-sized ponderings about anything, everything, and maybe even nothing.
Ep 9: Cutting Hair and Realizing It's Trigger Based
In this eye-opening episode, I delve into the fascinating concept of "Cutting Hair and Realizing It's Trigger Based." Join me on a thought-provoking journey as we explore the profound connection between haircuts and triggers. Discover how seemingly harmless activities like getting a haircut can unexpectedly trigger emotional responses and bring back memories from the past. Through personal anecdotes and insights, we unravel the complex web of triggers associated with hair cutting experiences. Gain a deeper understanding of how these triggers impact our emotional well-being and uncover strategies to navigate and learn to cope with them by knowing they exist.
Subjects include surviving child abuse, repressed memories, healing from trauma.
Ep 8: Artificial Intelligence Semi-Explored : AI Pros and Cons
Artificial intelligence is the topic of the day because they — “THEY” they of society and media of all types — are really chatting about this, no pun intended on the chat part, all over the place… and I think it’s going to explode in a really big way. We are just starting to understand what’s going on and I am exploring it a little bit in my normal rambling way. Let’s hope you and I find out that AI is the bomb…and I mean that in a good way, not in the desolation apocalyptic way. ✨💛✨
Ep. 7: My teen years, their teen years
This audio-only episode is an off the cuff (aren’t they all?) chat about my seeing a group of early teens who looked like they were from the wrong side of the tracks, and how they reminded me of…me and MY friends. Hope you enjoy it!
Ep. 6: Goofiness & VO Basics
In this joyous episode (heheh) WHILE having not great sound quality, I go over VO Tips…aka Voice Over. Because I was kinda working through this next phase of VIDEO podcasting where this episode is viewable in all its goofiness AND closed captioning is there for the hearing impaired or the distracted while working who listen with their sound off.
I will give more in depth tips too! With better audio. I swear I know how to do this.
This is why I named my cast this. Yup yup! ✨💛✨
Ep. 5: First Video Ep? But Here Is Sound Only
Ever heard a Rock ‘n Roll ukulele? In this breathtaking (not!) episode I share stuff about family, the upcoming holiday, all while — well, sometimes while — singing and playing my ukulele. And I get a little emotional.
