    Coming home...again.

    Coming home...again.

    COVID sent thousands of people packing right back to where it all started - their parents house.  Now we have retired parents with adult children crowding their dinner tables with screens, computers and endless coffee mugs.  There's young adults who managed to hold on to their first adult job who are trying to establish their place at their company as dad yells at the TV and mom gossips loudly into the phone.  And then there are the thousands who are now unemployed, back home feeling lost, angry and without purpose with no promise of a brighter future ahead. 

    CorBen recently moved home to Alaska from the hustle and bustle of NYC after reaching the door of what would have been the pinnacle of his career; a spot in the cast of "Hamilton." Samantha has moved home more times than she cares to admit. It's hard. You're grateful but it's hard. But, it's not forever.  Take is from us, this too shall pass.  In the meantime, let's all have a laugh together.

    When I Knew Yoga and Van Life Was My Calling

    When I Knew Yoga and Van Life Was My Calling

    Sarah grew up in New England where she attended the most exclusive schools and was well on her way to becoming an Olympic Rower. But when stress and unfulfilling goals became a voice in her head she couldn't ignore, she headed out west in search of herself. Yoga and making jewelry with responsibly sourced stones gave Sarah the serenity she had been longing for, and now she travels around the world with her partner Kyle and their dog, living out of their van and offering classes in Breathwork. It's the great leap most people only dream of and Sarah is living it. Join us for an insightful and honest view of this journey to self.

    When I Knew I Was Leaving New York City

    When I Knew I Was Leaving New York City

    Sarah had a life in New York City that would lead any career driven person to jealousy. A full time job at an established company with nights and weekends off to dine at the best restaurants and skip out to The Hamptons in the Summer. But a reality not unlike the now famous one featured in, "The Devil Wears Prada" drove her away from the bright lights and straight for the hills...literally.

    And she's not alone. In fact, millions of Millenials are leaving careers in big cities that their parents prayed they would have and are moving closer to nature, thus accepting massive slashes to their income and a complete upside down flip of their current lifestyle. But why?

    Join Dana, Samantha, and Sarah for a unique journey in search of "the idea" and the mad, unapologetic dash towards what life is truly all about.

    Tune in now on every major platform (Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Radio Public...) by searching, "When I Knew" or join us at www.wyspmedia.com/wheniknew

    Light bulb Moments: Parents

    Light bulb Moments: Parents

    There is no manual for parenting, nor has there ever been or will ever be.  The moms and dads of the world are just out there doing their best and hoping they're getting it right. Samantha and CorBen sit down to talk about their ever-evolving relationships with their parents from birth to adulthood.  CorBen comes from a strict military family and Samantha comes from a laid back nature loving family.  But they both turned out very similar in how they approach obstacles and most notably, how they take responsibility for their lives and apply their parents work ethic to their career goals.  So is it nature, nurture, routine or luck?  Tune in now for a feel good and honest look from a child's perspective on parents.
