Ep. 360 - Quarantine Confessions with Sarah Merrill of BigKidProblems
01:04:39

THE SOLO

K + L are joined by Sarah Merril, the comedic mastermind behind BigKidProblems, to have some much-needed girl time. She knows that nobody really has it together and unapologetically points it out at any occasion — to hilarious results. We chat about why everyone’s leaving Los Angeles, how it feels moving to a new city for the first time (and how much easier it is the second time), jiving with your partner during quarantine, and why it’s so damn expensive just living in this world. This is a fun one.

 

We also talk about:

  • The LA exodus
  • The struggles of being in quarantine with your partner
  • The things we’re letting go
  • Pivoting your podcast
  • Wedding planning

Ep. 359 - The Power of Airing Ugly Truths with Chinae Alexander
01:32:15

THE INTERVIEW

Chinae Alexander is the kind of person you just want to be friends with. She’s vulnerable about the process of improving herself and figuring shit out, but she owns who she is with  confidence. By showing the imperfect side of herself, it allows the people who follow her to see that they, too, can do the work AND be confident. Now, that’s an inspiring thing we don’t often see in the sometimes too-perfect-to-be-real world of Instagram influencers. She believes in showing up as the taste menu of yourself instead of the full ten-course meal — giving people enough of the real you to satisfy them and keep them full. In this thoughtful conversation, she dives into showing up as yourself online, finding a therapist who doesn’t freak you out, processing your emotions out loud, and handling anxiety in whatever way you can.

 

We also talk about:

  • Stepping in as a leader
  • Navigating the last few months
  • Processing emotions in public
  • Fully existing as yourself online
  • Dealing with anxiety
  • How coronavirus has given us more gratitude

Ep. 358 - We Listened to Our First Episode: Here’s Our Reaction
43:58

THE SOLO

This podcast is a spirit of her own, and she’s been driving this ship for a while. After four years and over 350 episodes, K + L revisit their first-ever episode of Almost 30—and all the cringey moments that come along with it. When you start something, it is not going to be perfect. But when you keep showing up, you will get better and better. The glow up is REAL! Sit back with K + L, have a good laugh, and be glad that we all evolve… because nobody wants 358 episodes of THAT.

 

We also talk about:

  • The imperfect start
  • The journey of improvement
  • Our early episodes
  • How far we’ve come

Ep. 357 - Jay Shetty on Spirituality, Leadership + Finding Your Purpose
01:27:32

THE INTERVIEW

Welcome to a highlight of our podcasting career: a conversation with Jay Shetty. Jay started this interview by saying “Let’s have a conversation I’ve never had before.”  And so we did. If you don’t already know and love Jay, he’s known for his viral social media videos where he teaches the principles he learned during his time as a monk. He’s now the host of the FIRE podcast, On Purpose, and author of the new book “Think Like A Monk,” and let us just say - he is everything you feel from him online and more. 😍 We don’t all have to be monks to adopt the same principles that allow them to lead lives of service and purpose. Jay shares the wisdom he gained from that time in his life and how we can bring the pillars of that lifestyle into our own lives for peace, groundedness, and connection. We dive into leadership, ego, creativity, and flow, as well as how you can stay inspired on the daily. We also go deep into his spirituality and connection to source, and it’s beautiful to hear his relationship with the universe in an easy-to-access way.

 

We also talk about:

  • Learning marketing and business in order to let your art see the world
  • Being in service of others
  • Living as a monk
  • Becoming more adaptable
  • Blocking creativity through structure
  • Jay’s relationship with Source
  • Finding your purpose
  • The real ego VS the false ego
  • Jay’s relationship with his wife

Ep. 355 - Gabby Reece Says Give Yourself a Break
01:23:11

THE INTERVIEW

Gabby Reece is iconic. She’s an athlete, a leader, an author, a wife, a mother, and an entrepreneur, and yet still so down-to-earth it’s kinda hard to believe. She popularized the idea of “going first” when interacting with other people: smile first, wave first, talk first, and break the tension without allowing awkwardness to grow between you. It’s a welcoming invitation to be present. She has such a liberating perspective on purpose, parenting, embracing the beauty and lessons in different phases of your life, and just being a good person on this planet. This is such an incredibly dynamic conversation from a true LEGEND that will hopefully encourage you to do things in your own way! 

 

We also talk about:

  • The power of going first + human connection
  • Horizontal vs Vertical relationships
  • Learning to know yourself outside of the “noise”
  • Embracing your masculinity as a female
  • Gabby’s spiritual journey
  • Raising girls in this current environment and social media society
  • Prioritizing movement throughout life
  • Her self-care routine
  • Productive confrontation in relationships
  • Articulating from love vs. reaction

Ep. 349 - Baring It all with The Birds Papaya
01:13:30

THE INTERVIEW

Known as @thebirdspapaya on Instagram, Sarah Nicole Landry unpacks what it means to be out there in the world with confidence and love. Being super honest, open, and vulnerable with yourself is hard enough. Embodying that around other people is a whole different level of uncomfortable… but it’s such a transformative way to live your life!  It’s hard to slow down and think of the effect that having eyes on our social media all the time has had on our emotional and mental wellbeing—the spiral of comparison or self-doubt—but she puts it into such a clear perspective. She is still, like all of us, in process, and that’s part of what’s so beautiful about her and her story.

 

We also talk about:

  • Being honest about your growth and transformation instead of ashamed of your past
  • The shame of wrapping your value up in external circumstances
  • Hitting rock bottom and healing
  • Having your own opinions instead of being a sponge for everyone elses
  • Learning to heal in relationships and love
  • The difficulties of vulnerability

Ep. 336 - The Spiritual Text that Changed My Life - with Aaron Abke
01:31:50

THE INTERVIEW

“The Law of One” is the most profound text Krista has ever read, and after reading it, she knew she HAD to share it with #almost30nation. It’s one of those texts where, after you read it, you know you will never be the same. It’s a historical text that was translated from a consciousness of the sixth dimension, known as Ra, through a woman. If you’re just starting to explore your spirituality in earnest, the book may be diving into the deep end — but if you are interested in aliens, history, sacred geometry, or metaphysics, “The Law of One” is a must read.

Aaron Abke is a YouTuber + a conscious influencer. He’s done several videos where he breaks down the Law of One, and if you don’t feel that you can read the text, that’s an excellent place to start. He is the perfect person to dive DEEP into all things consciousness, dimensions, aliens, pyramids — everything K + L LOVE to talk about!

 

We also talk about:

  • The trajectory of Aaron’s spiritual awakening
  • What the Law of One is
  • The relationship between Venus and aliens
  • The differences between dimensions and densities
  • Why people want to skip the fourth dimension
  • Wrestling between the two polarities of service to others or service to self
  • The role of free will
  • How they were able to channel Ra
  • The elements of each density
  • The galactic federation
  • The healing parts of the Law of One
  • Tarot in the Law of One

Ep. 335 - Dismantling White Supremacy in the Coaching Industry with Trudi Lebron
01:23:01

THE INTERVIEW

Coaching is an increasingly popular career choice, but rarely do we see advice addressing the impact of diversity and inclusion, or lack thereof. That’s why it was so important for us to invite Trudi Lebron to share your knowledge and insight into the Impact + Equity Coaching space. Instead of thinking about making a specific salary or reaching a certain number of people, Trudi helps coaches consider social change and values. She sees coaching as the biggest opportunity for impact in the world, and she’s making sure it’s approachable, affordable, and equitable for everyone.

We dive into topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and what all the differences are between them. We also talk about what spiritual bypassing is, as well as some of the microaggressions Trudi has experienced in her work.

 

We also talk about:

  • Doing things to prove people wrong
  • Creating the conditions for success equitably
  • Realizing the kind of life you want
  • Coaches who are unwilling to grow themselves
  • The microaggressions in the coaching world
  • Taking risks in opposition to racism
  • Seeing your work as activism
  • Building a business that is fully expressive of your values
  • Being honest about where you are in your journey
  • Marie Forleo’s mistake and how we can do better

43:56

THE SOLO

Everyone has had different experiences in quarantine and isolation — those who are enjoying it and others who are struggling & riddled with anxiety. As we see the world opening up again, we find ourselves thinking, “How can we maintain a sense of peace, groundedness, and a commitment to our evolution and growth?” That’s always been the point of this show, and this collective pause has really put a spotlight on the ways in which we must protect our energy and reflect on what’s truly important. We’ve also seen how focusing on personal growth can help us live a more aligned life and how making ourselves a priority positively affects other areas of our lives. K + L discuss how to reintegrate as the world finds its new normal and how to hold onto the lessons we learned during our time in quarantine.

 

We also talk about:

  • Remembering what you love about being home 
  • Being intentional about what you miss + why

Ep. 332 - White Privilege: Waking Up to Our Unconscious Biases (re-release)
01:12:06

THE INTERVIEW

K + L are here, as always, to have real, honest conversations — ones that challenge us, make us uncomfortable, and help us grow. This conversation with Thaís Sky on white privilege and white fragility from 2018 is one of those.  These are important parts of who many of us are and what we experience that we need to look at in order to be better and do better. Our hope is that you are inspired to dismantle your attachment and support of systems that, for centuries, have contributed to blatant racism and inequality.  Enough is enough.  We ask that in listening, you have an open mind, are ready to learn, and are willing to explore how you can be a part of the change.  .

 

We also talk about:

  • Opportunities for growth
  • Being addicted to our shitty thoughts + shitty people
  • Trying not to compartmentalize our own spirituality
  • Feeling unworthy of your own self-care: we can't show up for others if we’re not showing up for ourselves.
  • The governmental + societal systems that keep certain groups of people oppressed
  • How white women contribute to + benefit from racism
  • How we can REALLY educate ourselves about systematic oppression + privilege
  • When you have privilege, what is your place in the conversation?
  • Living in an emotionally illiterate culture
  • How to avoid tokenizing people of color
  • What’s wrong when people say they’re “color blind”
  • The importance of doing this work, even imperfectly (because perfect just isn’t going to happen)
  • Deciding what kind of legacy we want to leave

01:08:53

THE INTERVIEW

Aaron Rose is the coach that K + L have been working with to help them uncover unconscious biases, be more intentional, and nurture inclusivity. There can be so much information, news, and things we’re seeing daily that can be very triggering right now. We hear that word a lot, trigger, and it’s important for us to unpack what that really means and how we can work against that. It’s okay to be triggered, but there’s something underneath that trigger that needs to be examined. How do we fix these deep-rooted issues that go so far back? Aaron teaches us his method of inner work for dealing with triggers.

 

We also talk about:

  • A nuanced understanding of manifestation
  • Finding the root cause of your feelings and allowing yourself to feel them

Ep. 329 - “Revolution Now” - In Conversation with Rachel Cargle (re-release)
01:25:35

THE INTERVIEW

This week we’re bringing back an interview we had with Rachel Cargle in December of 2018 because it is incredibly relevant to things that are happening in our world today. She has done an amazing job building a platform and resources for people, she raises money for marginalized communities, and she hosts The Great Unlearn on Patreon. We’ve talked about white fragility, white supremacy, allyship, and the issue of race, and these are all things that need to be brought back to the forefront. Rachel is doing so much to show us how to engage with white supremacy, how we as white people play a huge role in the race conversations going on, and how we can be better to support anti-racism. We need to work together against the system that has created this huge rift in society. We have so much power, we need to use that power for good.

 

We also talk about:

  • Deciding to start teaching what she was learning 
  • Her college experience 
  • Where to start in order to make a difference

Ep. 326 - 6 Tips for Building Confidence
49:49

THE SOLO

Confidence is so key. Yes, we’ve all heard it before, but some things are cliché for a reason. K + L each offer three tried-and-true tips for being more confident, all born from their personal experiences. But remember — confidence is always going to be something personal to you. It doesn’t have to look the same as someone else, and it doesn’t even have to look like sunshine and rainbows. Confidence is something you work on getting closer to, and you never quite get there fully, but it’s so worth working towards all the same.

 

We also talk about:

  • Working towards confidence
  • Facing hard things
  • Finding quiet to hear our own voices
  • Channeled writing
  • Appreciating your body
  • Engaging in self-care
  • Looking back on your progress

K + L have been wanting to connect with the community two-on-one for a while and are so excited to finally share the first of many conversations in their new series, “Community Call”! We’ve been wanting to hear from YOU - Almost 30 nation - and how you’ve been impacted by the show, taken the messages shared by guests or other members of the community, and have made serious, positive changes in your life. Joining them this week is Emily Feikls, who first discovered the podcast when she was 18 and struggling with finding like-minded friends in her rural town. At the time, Emily felt like an outsider, like she didn’t belong to any community — but she felt an instant connection to #ALMOST30NATION as soon as she found it. She then took small steps to take control of her life and live in her truth - including attending last year’s retreat and starting her very own podcast and community. Emily is an inspiration, modeling for all of us how you can alchemize pain + grief into a beautiful life that you love.

 

We also talk about:

  • How an 18-year old gets into Almost 30
  • Feeling like an outsider in your geographical community
  • Finding your voice
  • Leaving your comfort zone

Ep. 320 - 3 Practices to Build Self-Trust

THE SOLO

Trust is so, so important in any healthy relationship — that’s obvious, right? It shouldn’t be any different when it comes to ourselves. Trusting yourself and the way you live your life is transformational. We all reach a moment where it’s time to break up with this expectation — whether from our parents or someone else — of how our life was supposed to go and to trust ourselves to live life the way we want. Lindsey shares her experience making the transition from not trusting herself to a more consistent and confident level of trust and the three practices she follows to help build that self trust every day.

 

We also talk about:

  • The experiences that damaged Lindsey’s self trust
  • What trusting yourself (or not) looks like
  • The ways you can strengthen your trust
  • What happens when you trust yourself

Ep. 319 - Ramit Sethi on Elevating Your Wealth Consciousness

THE INTERVIEW

Ramit Sethi’s book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, is an absolute game-changer in the finance world. He is charismatic, grounded, and relatable — not to mention one of the most progressive voices in the financial literacy and wellness space. He does not sugar coat things, and when it comes to finances and getting really good at managing them, you have to be real about it. He infamously pushes back against the tired advice of “cutting out lattes” in order to save money. Instead, Ramit focuses on indulging in the things you actually care about and noticing when you spend money on things you don’t really care about.

 

We also talk about:

  • How to get over making excuses when it comes to finances
  • The connection between human behavior and finance
  • Getting your finances together in your 20’s
  • Creating money rules around “yes” instead of “no”
  • Stop worrying about things you shouldn’t
  • How your spending changes as you grow
  • Saving can make you feel free
  • Making real money through investing

Ep. 318 - The Journey of Body Acceptance
01:16:47

THE SOLO

Instagram loves to kindly remind us of photos we’ve taken in the past, which can be great! But it can also invite us to criticize and compare ourselves. When this happened to Krista, what she noticed so clearly was the ways in which her body has changed over the past few years — namely, weight gain.

A few months ago, Krista was in New York City reflecting on the habits and mentalities around her body and how she has shifted away from the behaviors that kept her at the lowest weight she’s ever been. She has been learning how to live with her new body and wanted to share how she deals with body image issues, how her relationship with her body has changed over time, and some tips and resources regarding health and diet.

THE INTERVIEW

Debra Silverman is on to give us a much-needed astrological update on what’s currently happening in the world. She shares what was written in the stars when the virus came and things started to shift, when it looks like we’re going to get out of it, what every sign needs to be doing during this time, what transitions in astrology we need to be aware of over the coming year, and what the new normal will look like on the other side of this. (Don’t worry too much. There’s opportunity there.) We close the episode out with a beautiful prayer, a mic-drop moment that we hope will help you open up to the power of prayer and meditation as you move forward through this crisis.

CATCH UP WITH K + L

Even though the state of the world is uneasy right now, people are supporting people in such a beautiful way — and K+L want to celebrate that! Remember, all of the things that are happening in the world right now will pass as we step into our light. If you need some support in these times, you can find a community of super supportive women in the secret Almost 30 Facebook groups.

 

THE INTERVIEW

Julie Nguyen lived the first 30 years of her life believing that her health problems were chronic and incurable. When she realized that changing her diet improved her mood, her eczema, her weight, and her happiness, she had to share that life-changing info with others. But she ran into a roadblock: healthy food has a branding problem, and the bland food churned out by the ‘health food’ industry isn’t doing anything to help it. Julie devoted her life to making healthy, tasty food and nutrition education more accessible through Methodology, an innovative company that delivers fresh, chef-curated food to your door. Not all heroes wear capes, and not all medicine comes in capsules.

If you’d like to try Methodology, K + L have a promo code. Visit gomethodology.com and use the code ALMOST30 for 20% off your first delivery.

  • Transitioning from finance to tech
  • Finding a functional medicine doctor
  • How our environment impacts our health + diet

  • How unhealthy foods often make the most outlandish health claims

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been overwhelmed. 🙌 At some point or another it’s a feeling we’ve all had to uncomfortably confront — you’re not alone. In today’s solo episode with Lindsey, she shares how she has dealt with the feeling of overwhelm head on. Although it is tempting to avoid, Lindsey has learned to embrace the feeling because it is one of the most powerful opportunities for growth that the Universe gives us. When we’re open to understanding how and why it happens, we can harness that energy and turn it into something incredible.

Lindsey has been feeling this ebb and flow of overwhelm over the past two years, and with that consistency, she had to ask: What is the purpose of this overwhelm? She shares the answers that came through during a channeled writing session with her higher self, why she avoided overwhelm for so long, and 3 tips for reframing the idea of being overwhelmed.

 

We also talk about:

  • Where we learn that overwhelm is bad
  • How overwhelm is a challenge to our ego + why that’s a gift
  • Doing the inner work necessary to understand why you are avoiding overwhelm
  • Increasing your tolerance for overwhelm
  • Using breathwork to center yourself

Ep. 305 - The Freedom in Forgiving with Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt
01:08:01

THE INTERVIEW

Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt joins us today for a conversation on forgiveness. Her new book, The Gift of Forgiveness, gives readers an opportunity to deeply understand the act of forgiving and how doing so can positively affect everyone involved. But let’s be real: Forgiveness is SO layered. It requires us to be vulnerable, release the ego, and allow change. Katherine’s book speaks to those layers and how we can work out our “forgiveness muscle” daily. Newly married, Katherine gushes about her relationship with Chris Pratt and shares how forgiveness will always play a huge role in their relationship. We are all going to be faced with opportunities to forgive, and Katherine’s hope is that, by reading the inspiring stories of those who were able to forgive in situations you wouldn’t imagine, you will be able to move forward in practicing forgiveness in your life.

 

We also talk about:

  • Her book, I Just Graduated… Now What? and why she felt inspired to speak to this formative time
  • How Katherine got over her fear of sharing details about her life
  • How forgiveness can be a gift you give yourself
  • How to ask for help + advice when you need it
  • The process of finding stories for her book
  • The physicality of holding on to anger
  • Times when you don’t have to forgive

They’ve invited their favorite healers, speakers, tarot card readers, astrologists, trainers, and more to support women through this life-changing experience!

For more information, you can go to almost30podcast.com/retreat.

 

THE SOLO

Krista is exploring this one popular concept in today’s episode: authenticity.Catch that gag reflex! Although authenticity has become such a buzz word cliche lately that it doesn’t really mean anything, that’s exactly why it’s worth discussing. K & L were recently asked how they were so authentic during an interview and it gave Krista some pause because it’s not a word that she identifies with. It feels like a word that doesn’t allow you to change. This is why Krista wants to hash out the details of what true authenticity really is, and how we can balance being an authentic human while also allowing ourselves to change and grow.

 

We also talk about:

  • Why K hasn’t identified with the term “authentic”
  • The benefits of authenticity
  • K’s goals for her future self
  • How growth and authenticity interplay
  • Accepting growth as a part of yourself
  • Being authentic to the person you are at any given time
  • The expression of the true self

Tune in to hear about their clubbin’, beachin’, and shroomin’ adventures! For Christmas, L journeyed into the desert with her family, then spent some dreamy time in New York with her boyfriend. K went the atypical route of spending less time with her family this holiday season. She shares how she spent this much needed decompression and alone time, and her total ‘life edit’ that took place. K + L also delve into the feelings that surfaced, and how they support themselves in those low moments.

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are digging into the male perspective on upleveling with Heath Ellis! As a Soul Coach for Men, Heath helps men shift the trajectory of their lives and come into alignment with their purpose—what he calls “the path of the conscious man.” Krista’s fiancé, Justin, had a very impactful coaching session with Heath, and is joining in on the conversation.

Heath shares how he was not always on this path of self-knowing, and completely changed the direction of his life in his late 20s. Although successful, he was miserable in his job, and decided to change the course of his life after a meditation retreat and his Akashic Records reading (aka your soul’s record). In our conversation, we talk greatly about the differences in the masculine and feminine approaches to healing. Heath explores holding vs. creating space, patterns of limiting beliefs, and steps to helping men be more sovereign. He explains his structure for checking in with your partner on how each of you is doing, and Krista and Justin share how they implement this practice. We wrap up the conversation with insightful books, and Heath reveals the key to a successful self-care ritual.

Heath is offering 30% off single coaching sessions using the code ALMOST30 at consciousman.com/impact-sessions.



We also talk about:

Ep. 276 - Digital Minimalism +The Importance of Deep Work with Cal Newport
01:46:52

CATCH UP WITH K + L

Is it a negative sign to feel pain after the chiropractor? Or could it be locked up emotions that need to be released? Krista is looking for your feedback! K + L also share a personal anecdote from an Almost 30 listener. This sparks a conversation around the power of micro impacts and how messages come to us at the right time.

 

THE INTERVIEW

Buckle up for today’s episode with Georgetown University professor and New York Times bestselling author, Cal Newport! Cal has written six books, including Digital Minimalism, Deep Work, and So Good They Can’t Ignore You. Today, we are scratching the surface of these incredibly powerful and insightful reads.

Are you searching for an answer as to why we compulsively look at our phones? Cal reveals the role Facebook and social approval indicators have played in our increased usage. We talk about how phones keep us from feeling boredom and loneliness, and why feeling boredom is actually beneficial. When it comes to the concept of ‘deep work,’ Cal explains why it is a valuable yet rare skill, and how practicing it will allow you to produce higher quality work at a faster rate. He explains factors that affect our ability to do deep work, and we discuss how being unavailable due to an appointment is more socially acceptable than taking deep work time. We then ask Cal why “follow your passion” is actually bad advice, and he shares how passion is something you cultivate over time, which leads to fulfillment and success in your career.

You’ll learn daily hacks for minimizing the time on your phone, and a strategy for families that want to use phones as a tool versus a constant companion. Cal emphasizes being intentional about what you use, why you use it, and how you use it. Let’s go!

 

We also talk about:

-Why ‘focusing’ takes practice

-How deep work reduces the phenomenon “attention residue”

-The effect of A.I. on deep work

-How servicing communications affect our anxiety levels

-The positives and negatives of “Screen Time”

-The way social media helps sell books

-Facebook compared to the original idea for the internet

Ep. 274 - Live Show with Stewart Pearce: Discover The Power of Your Signature Sound
01:25:11

CATCH UP WITH K + L

K + L kick off today’s episode talking all about emotions! K explores how she’s learning to be comfortable in the uncomfortable, and shares how she’s been feeling since announcing her engagement. The ladies delve into how it isn’t your job to manage others’ experiences, especially when they are displacing their emotions onto you, and the importance of not reacting from an emotional state. L then reveals how she’s been feeling about L O V E — tune in to get some deets on the guy she’s currently dating, and her wild dream about him!

 

THE INTERVIEW

Buckle up for today’s LIVE event with internationally known voice coach, sound healer, and angel communicator—Stewart Pearce! We are stoked to share this with you because Stewart’s work is incredibly powerful, and we truly feel he is an angel in human form. Instead of the normal Q&A interview experience, today’s episode is more workshop style. Stewart takes us through an exercise to find YOUR signature note and sound! He explains how this tool brings you back into harmony, allowing you to find your power by being grounded and rooted in the center of your being. Stewart also talks about speaking from the heart versus the mind, how the quality of someone’s voice shows their integrity, and balancing ‘doing’ with ‘being.’ We wrap up with some audience Q&A, and you’ll learn how to make this a daily practice!

 

We also talk about:

-Personality as the sum of our being

-How Greeks & Romans viewed the power of voice

-How our sound brings our entire being into harmony

-Love for the sake of love vs. love for the sake of being loved

-Mindfulness and meditation

-How the tone of our voice displays our feelings

Ep. 273 - How to Consciously Co-Create with The Universe with Aaron Rose
01:59:33

CATCH UP WITH K + L

Today K + L begin by spotlighting Joe Rogan’s interview with Edward Snowden. They discuss the increase in censorship and shift in power after 9/11, then pivot to chatting about Joe’s ability to be a bada$$ + rad dad at the same time. Get ready for some lol’s as K recounts her story involving a police case, ridiculous clothes for Coachella, and a hit and run! Then L shares her friend’s experience with a medical procedure gone wrong—highlighting the importance of second opinions, asking questions, and being your own advocate in a doctors office. 

 

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are vibin’ so high with this powerful and impactful episode. It resonates so deeply with us; we can’t wait to share it with you. Our guest, Aaron Rose, is a conscious culture and life design coach, and motivational speaker. We recently started working with him to expand our knowledge on being conscious leaders.

Today Aaron joins us to illustrate his journey of growth, and how he began living his truth after growing up in a religious household that limited self-expression. For example, Aaron talks about the family newspaper he started to advocate for himself due to the discord he felt toward their religion’s lack of acceptance. He shares his coming out process, the painful conversations of trying to explain himself to his family, and how his relationship has evolved with them over the years. We then ask what it means to be ‘real’ on Instagram, and love Aaron’s answer about searching for our relatable brilliance versus flaws.

We also talk about being triggered—understanding when you’re being triggered, what to do, and the importance of allowing your emotions to flow through you. Aaron shares how dropping into your heart and cleaning up energetic patterns creates change. To wrap up, he shares his favorite books, and we spend some time nerding out on The Lord of the Rings!

 

We also talk about:

-How being fully present with others can create discomfort

-Aaron’s early experiences of discrimination

-How in conflict we still yearn for connection

-His involvement in social justice projects in high school and later

-How we are addicted to the lows

-Aaron’s relationship with God & faith

-How Aaron’s work has impacted individuals, teams, work cultures

Ep. 272 - Laticia Rolle on Valuing Sisterhood + Healing From Toxic Relationships
01:34:01

Today K + L are kicking it off with dreams and ways to cleanse your home from unwanted energy! Have you ever experienced a psychic dream? Lindsey shares a friend’s psychic dream that involved L and a new romance, then Krista illustrates her recent natural disaster dreams and the meaning behind them. Krista breaks down the exact way she’s been cleansing her apartment - from playing sounds that break up stuck energy, burning palo santo, and smudge sprays by Tisha Morris, you’ll learn some fun new ways to cleanse your home’s energy!

 

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are joined by the founder and CEO of Tress for Us and host of Girl We Got This podcast, Laticia Rolle! We can’t express enough admiration for Laticia. She is the definition of a true friend with her unwavering support and love. Growing up in a large family and as an athlete for most of her life, Laticia’s life has always revolved around creating sisterhood and meaningful relationships—which is a central part of today’s conversation.

Laticia vulnerably shares her experience with her parent’s divorce, toxic relationships, and cheating. We talk about the lows that come from heartbreak, the comparison game, and the incessant checking of the other girl’s Instagram. We explore the reasons women don’t leave cheaters, and Laticia explains why she finally ended her toxic relationship. She expresses the importance of asking for help, especially when you start over.

We ask how Laticia began fostering her authentic self, particularly after being surrounded by high-profile individuals and extreme wealth, which influenced who she ‘had’ to be. A huge takeaway from our conversation is how we need to stop comparing ourselves to other women, and begin owning the beauty and uniqueness that is YOU.

 

We also talk about:

-Why Laticia loves modeling

-Defining loyalty after toxic relationships

-Gas-lighting

-Women’s intuition

-Laticia’s inner dialogue while being cheated on

-Fighting for yourself and choosing yourself

-The role guilt plays in women’s lives

-Having a girl squad when you’re a kid

-What Laticia is proud of right now

-Being patient and present to your life

Ep. 266 - Cathy Heller on The Power of Enthusiasm, Alone Time + Radical Empathy
02:06:22

CATCH UP WITH K + L

 

Today K & L are sharing thoughts, reflecting on events, and reviewing tips for optimal sleep! The girls begin with a conversation around the “campsite policy”, one Lindsey found in Some Thoughts About Relationships.  The policy is one Dan Savage coined.  Who wants Dan back on the show to discuss!? His belief is that in relationships, you should not leave someone worse off than when you first met them.  FOOD FOR THOUGHT! The ladies then discuss their event with HUM Nutrition and share sleep tips from The Sleep Doctor, Michael Breus. And lastly, K & L fondly reflect on their last show in NYC with Stewart Pearce at The Assemblage.

Today we had the pleasure of interviewing the host of the popular podcast,  Don’t Keep Your Day Job and coach for creative entrepreneurs, Cathy Heller!

Our conversation explores emotions, motivation, creativity, entrepreneurship and turning inward. Cathy speaks on how the resistance of feeling is actually what causes the greatest amount of pain. She explains how state of mind trumps everything—from sleep to food—when it comes to motivation and productivity, and shares her knowledge on how to find momentum and enthusiasm. When it comes to pursuing your passion, Cathy gives tips for where to start, like determining your target audience. We talk about the importance of spending time alone and allowing yourself to be creative. Lastly, we ask Cathy what she’s proud of and what she’s working on, and she opens up about her experience with anxiety and relationship OCD.

 

We also talk about:

  • How humans fear and hide from their feelings
  • The isolating feeling of being an entrepreneur
  • Cultivating a community & making people feel seen
  • Responding to the feedback of your community
  • Not being afraid to share your story
  • The four things people crave that equal a sense of purpose

Ep. 265 - Jedidiah Jenkins on Faith and Sexuality + The Adventure of Finding Personal Truth
01:57:07

CATCH UP WITH K + L

 

K & L returned to the place that taught them so much—New York City! With blistered feet, full hearts and fond memories, the gals reflect on the place that saw them through the sh*tstorms, and on their live show with Heather McMahan at Chelsea Music Hall. Stay tuned for the live recording to launch as an episode soon!

 

THE INTERVIEW

 

Today we are sitting down with travel writer and New York Times best selling author of To Shake the Sleeping Self, Jedidiah Jenkins! We had the privilege of spending time with Jedidiah at the Onsite Workshops Creatives’ Retreat. We’ve admired him from afar for so long, and in meeting this sweet being we were confirmed in our admiration for his authenticity, humor, thoughtfulness, and ability to truly see people and make them feel special by way of the deepest conversations. 

 

In our conversation today, we start by discussing music, concerts and releasing energy such as anger. Jedidiah then begins sharing his story, and paints a picture of his journey in writing his book. From his experience with imposter syndrome to meeting one of his favorites, Cheryl Strayed, and how she came to write a blurb for his book—he has us laughing the whole time. Jedidiah talks about his relationship with his parents after coming out, and shares how he’s never felt shame around his sexuality, even after growing up in an Evangelical Christian household. He also shares how he’s cultivated deep friendships, and how he fosters those relationships and builds community. We have been long awaiting this conversation, and can’t wait to share it with you!

 

We also talk about:

  • Societies view of the body as carnal and animalistic
  • A mixing board as a metaphor for human life
  • Jedidiah’s deep dive into Christianity
  • The repression of sexuality impacting other aspects of life
  • The lack respectful disagreement in our society
  • Gravity points for finding authentic friendships
  • Jedidiah’s creative process

Ep. 235 - Sheri Salata on ‘The Beautiful No’ and What It Means To Truly Live
01:45:19

Today’s conversation highlights how the heartbreaking “no’s” we receive in life can take us in a better and more meaningful direction. Our guest is Sheri Salata, whose humor and wild spirit is infectious. After a twenty year career as the Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Sheri is now the author of The Beautiful No, co-host of The Sheri + Nancy Show, and co-founder of thepillarlife.com.

 

Our conversation begins with an emotional recounting of when Sheri’s brother passed away suddenly from a heart attack nine years ago. For years, she avoided processing her grief by immersing herself in work and caring for family.

Sheri’s humor and honesty as she reflects on every single job she’s had, how each one has made her who she is today as an entrepreneur, and how the No’s ultimately gave her everything she needed to succeed, one lesson at a time. From managing a convenience store and a toy store, to working as a secretary. Sheri has started over and felt lost countless times, but kept searching for something to fill her with meaning. At age 35, she landed an entry level job at The Oprah Winfrey Show, and finally found what she was searching for—purpose.

  • Importance of dreaming and creating
  • Uplifting others, seeing their potential and verbalizing it

Today we are sitting down with author, mother, and one of our favorite humans, Peta Kelly. Let us give you a few reasons why we love this woman so much: 1) Peta holds family as one of her greatest values 2) She is funny as hell 3) She walks the talk 4) She has taught us how to have hard conversations 4) She is constantly evolving without needing anything from anyone.  The list continues to grow—especially after today’s interview.

Peta explains what ancestral healing is and the work she does to help heal the painful experiences of her family’s past, like having open conversations with her husband. 

 

While in her twenties, Peta focused on soul growth, while working hard as an entrepreneur to set herself up financially before moving into motherhood. We discuss how she’s evolved spiritually since then, since writing her book, Earth is Hiring, and how her self-care rituals, such as stepping off of social media and Cacao ceremonies, have changed since becoming a mom.
