Ep 36: Jenna Fischer & Angela Kinsey are best friends and Office Ladies
01:03:33

This episode is for you if you met your best friend at the office. 

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are well known for their iconic roles as Pam Beesly and Angela Martin on one of the most beloved tv shows of all time, The Office. But in real life they are also best friends, and now they're business partners launching their new podcast Office Ladies. 

On this very special episode, Jenna and Angela talk with me about one of my favorite topics: friendship. We talk about childhood friends, how hard it is to make good friends as adults, and the trickiness of friendship when the dynamics change. 

Angela shares her biggest heartbreak with a friendship, and Jenna talks about a time when her feelings were hurt in a friendship. Plus I tell the story of the two VERY awkward ways I met each of these women, and they tell me the origin story of their friendship on set all those years ago. 

This episode is PACKED with stories, laughs, and a few tears.

FLEABAG: A Love Story (BONUS episode!)
01:03:17

This episode is for you if you were wrecked by Season 2 of the television show Fleabag.

FLEABAG is a two-season television show created by, written by, and starring the incredible Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It swept the 2019 Emmys, winning SIX of the ELEVEN it was nominated for, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

I binged Fleabag last week and couldn't go one more day without talking about it. I recruited my friend Sueann Fortener to sit down with me so we could gush and cry and analyze all of our emotions around this spectacular season of television.

Ep 35: Ask me in 3 months
18:26

This episode is for you if there is something you want to get done before the end of the year. 

Today's prompt came from the original 10 Things To Tell You social media challenge. 

We all have something that we just keep procrastinating. Let's commit to completing this task between now and January 1. I'm sharing two of the things that I really want to sit down and finish (both on my To Do list for literally years) and a few ideas for things you might want to be held accountable to in the next three months. 

Also in this episode I talk about my favorite planner. (And here's the blog post where I talk about how I chose this planner after a million minutes of internet research.)

Ep 33: Recent Revelations
32:17

This episode is for you if you’ve had any recent revelations you want to share.

If you’re a regular listener to this show, you are probably the type of person who is striving for growth, who aims to be self-aware, and who is paying attention. And if you’re paying attention, you’re learning. Always.

So this week I'm sharing with you a few of my own personal recent revelations (some shallow, some deeper), and I am actively encouraging you to share your own. Not only privately or in your journal, this time I’m challenging you to share on social media.

I want you to tell us a recent revelation you’ve had in your life. It’s an exercise in sharing of yourself AND I just want to see what people are thinking about these days. It helps me see the pulse of the listeners and create content for the show.

Ep 32: What is it about pets?
14:11

This episode is for you if you have a pet. 

This is the last show I ever thought I would do, but I just have to hand it to my dog. I'm asking you to reflect on what your pet brings to your life (now or in the past). 

I'm sharing about why we got a dog when I was so opposed to it, and the role he played in a recent scary event in our life. 

This episode is short and sweet. Like Kona Rocket. (That's right, he has his own instagram.)

Ep 29: What are your intentions?
17:35

This episode is for your if you’re curious about how setting intentions works.

If you’ve heard the phrase “setting intentions” and thought it was just a bunch of vague feel-good language, think again. In this episode, I’m sharing how setting intentions can lead to getting the most out of your day, your experiences, and your interactions with others.

Ep 28: Motherhood through adoption with Lindsay Lawler
01:06:26

This episode is for you if you or a loved one has ever struggled through the fertility process, or if you’re interested in the topic of adoption.

I am so happy to share this conversation with one of my dearest friends, Lindsay Lawler, who recently became a mother when she adopted her baby girl on Thanksgiving Day 2018. 

Lindsay shares the story of her experience with infertility, medical treatments, and adoption. As a reminder, neither Lindsay nor I are medical experts OR adoption experts. We both encourage you to do all your research when planning to grow your family.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • listening to your body

  • finding out your egg count

  • connecting with your doctor

  • marriage strain

  • how adoption should NOT be a last resort

  • staying positive but also allowing yourself emotions

  • finding an adoption agency

  • trusting the outcome

  • fears after placement

Ep 27: Ask Me Anything
01:06:27

You asked, I answered.

This episode covers everything from favorite authors, skincare updates, self-doubt, the big thing that happened to me earlier this year, and whether or not I'm making money on this podcast. 

I also include a little Q&A with my mom at the end of the episode.

This was not a show I was planning on doing, but apparently I have a lot of words to give your questions. Thanks for hanging in there with the change in format in this completely unscripted episode.

Ep 25: Where are you?
17:25

This episode is for you if you're feeling a little unmoored right now.

I’m asking you Where Are You? in three different ways:

Where are you in your mind?

Where are you on the timeline?

Where are you in your space?

In this episode I’m sharing a few mindfulness routines, reading from the anthology On Being 40-ish, and urging you take up space in a room and in a photo.

58:45

This episode is for you if you need more motivation in the kitchen. 

I'm in a cooking rut. After a season of convenience foods and lazy standbys, I'm ready to get back to the basics in the kitchen. My friend Bri McKoy is sharing the 10 essential kitchen tools that will inspire and motivate new habits for feeding my family. 

We really just wanted to talk about cooking. But of course I tried to make it deep. 

You can find Bri McKoy on Instagram and on her blog Our Savory Life.

Ep 23: What are you measuring?
18:54

This episode is for anyone who has struggled with meeting a goal, or knowing what to prioritize. 

We’re all measuring something, but are we using the right metric? Are we measuring time or result? Are we measuring our waist or our health? We can measure our social media or our water intake, but if we’re not setting ourselves up for success, then we’ll fail emotionally every time.

In this episode, I’m musing over some measurements that caught me off guard, and how I’m shifting my perspective on some of the things I'm actively measuring.

I’m asking you to give an honest assessment of the things in your life (big and small) that you’re measuring, and ask yourself if you’re using the right metric.

25:31

This episode is for you if you've ever taken a trip.

Ep 18: 10 Thoughts on Anxiety
41:48

This episode is for you if you’ve ever struggled with anxiety or ever watched a loved one form coping mechanisms to handle their anxiety.

I have more than 10 things to tell you about anxiety, but here is a place we can start the mental health conversation. In this episode, I'm sharing my lifelong anxiety starting in childhood, through the teenage and young adult years, after I had children, and into the present day. 

I'm talking about what anxiety looks like for me, healthy and unhealthy coping mechanisms, and the things that have given me the most relief. 

The goal of this type of episode is just to share a common human experience. I hope that it makes you check in with your own body, be honest about mental health struggles, and bring about some understanding of the anxiety that millions of people live with every day.

Ep 17: Revisiting Flowers in the Attic with guest Meg Tietz
59:52

Content warning. The themes in this book include child abuse and sexual violence. 

This discussion of Flowers in the Attic by VC Andrews is finally here! Meg Tietz and I sit down to talk about this cult classic novel that women of a *cough* certain age passed around among friends. 

We thought we were in for a giggly conversation about a silly book. What we found between these pages surprised us both.

Ep 16: Are you a chili cooker or a pizza orderer?
17:52

This episode is for you if you've ever felt stuck in your roles. 

This episode and this concept is brought to you by an old boyfriend, who (I think?) made up this analogy and it contributed to the end of our relationship and also has stayed with me as a major life question and metaphor.

Ep 13: Who do you tell?
25:40

This episode is for you if you’ve ever wondered “Who am I supposed to tell these 10 Things to….?”

Every week I go on and on about how we all have 10 Things To Tell, but WHO do you tell? 

Friends? A sibling? A partner? No one?

This episode is about the people who deserve your trust. I'm telling you the 3 things that make me want to share with someone, and what happens if that trust is broken. There's one thing in particular I really want you to pay attention to. 

I hope this episode makes you think about the relationships in your life that inspires you to share your stuff, in both new and lifelong friendships.

Ep 12: Who did you expect to be?
21:09

This episode is for anyone whose life didn't turn out exactly as they expected. 

Who did you expect to be?

Not who did you *want* to be or who did other people want you to be? But WHO did YOU expect to be at this stage of your life? And are you that person?

I've thought about variations of this theme for years, maybe even my whole adulthood. Because my life hasn't turned out at all like I expected. Okay, that's not entirely true.

Ep 8: Movie Director Jeff Tremaine has things to tell you
49:01

This episode is for you if you've ever wondered the difference between a Hollywood director and a producer. 

Every now and then this show will take a break from the personal introspection and hear from a guest who has something interesting to say. I'm kicking off that series with my talented husband, producer/director Jeff Tremaine. 

In this episode we talk about his new movie The Dirt, a Netflix biopic about the rock band Motley Crue. Jeff shares why the film took nearly 10 years to make, and the most crucial decision he made in the beginning. 

We also discuss how we stay connected in our marriage when apart for months at a time, and how he feels about making a movie that doesn't always align with his own values.

Ep 7: What are you assuming about others?
21:30

This episode is for you if you've ever made assumptions about others that turned out not to be true. 

Sometimes I assume that everyone else is killin' it at life and I'm the only one flailing around. Sound familiar? 

In this episode, I share some of the silly things people have assumed about me and a few things that I assume about everyone else. (None of these things are true.)

This is the first in the REVISIT series, where we're going to look at things from the past and see how they affected us then and how we feel about them now. Today's topic: Judy Blume.

Specifically, her three novels: 

Are you there, God? It's me, Margaret.

Blubber

and Starring Sally J. Freedman As Herself.

My guest on this episode is my childhood friend Cara Pence, and we get a little emotional as we delve into the more painful themes of these books. This is a true conversation between friends.

This episode is for you if you've ever had a teacher who made an impact on your thinking and development. 

Tell me about your teachers. 

 

Today we're talking about the school teachers (or coaches, or activity instructors) who have made a difference in our lives in one way or another. I'm sharing the teachers who taught me how to think, trusted me, and even a few who left a mark I wish I didn't have.

At the end of the episode, we hear from a few listeners.

Ep 4: How do you connect to your body?
29:26
This episode is for you if you’ve ever felt disconnected from your own body.
 
This episode is NOT about weight or exercise. We’re talking about the mind/body connection and the spiritual awakening that can occur when you really tune into your body instead of living on autopilot.
 
I’m welcoming Pilates studio owner and movement teacher Kerri Campbell as my guest as we discuss and answer the question
 
How do you connect to your body?
 
Age, trauma, pain, and depression are just a few of the things that can cause us to disconnect from our body over time. In this episode we’ll talk about how to recognize if your brain and body have gone numb to one another and the mindset shift that will motivate positive change instead of constant self critique.

Ep 3: Where do you live?
22:45

This episode is for you if you've ever thought about where you live and how it affects you. 

Where do you live?

This is one of the most basic, get-to-know-you questions, and the answer can vary. Our country, state, city, and neighborhood all say something about us, whether we like it or not. 

On today's episode, we're not just talking about our zip codes, we're talking about how our location is currently affecting who we are. I live in Los Angeles, so I have 10 Things To Tell You about my little pocket of L.A.

This episode is for you if you've ever felt lonely. Which means this episode is for everyone. 
 
Loneliness feels like one of the great taboo topics of adulthood. But all around me, I see and hear people whispering that they’re profoundly lonely. In this episode I’m going to tell you about a time in my life when I was really lonely, and the two things I did that turned it around for me. 
 
The prompt for this week:
 
Are you lonely?
 
Or 
 
When were you lonely?

Ep 1: When do you read?
26:07

This episode is for you if you want tips on how to read more, or if you already have a reading habit.

We're kicking off the 10 Things To Tell you podcast with my favorite thing: BOOKS! People are always asking me how I read so much, and mainly people want to know:

WHEN do you read?

HOW do you read?

WHAT do you read?

I’m answering all of those questions and so much more. I’m telling you my secret to reading (roughly) one book a week. If audiobooks count the same as reading a book you hold. And I confess my dilemma over rating books publicly.

Read the full show notes here.

After you listen to the episode, I want you to answer the questions for yourself. Text your reader friends and ask them about their reading routines. Or post on social media your reading habits and opinions using the hashtag #10ThingsToTellYou.
