Ep. 131: Grown-Upping the Summer (2/4)

Continuing our series on grown-upping the summer, this time Kendra and I talk about work. Because sure, it’s summer, but also, we’re adults with jobs and stuff. As self-employed types, we talk about how we get work done with kids in the house — hers are a bit younger,...

Ep. 130: Grown-Upping the Summer (1/4)

Summertime isn’t just for kids or students! Kendra and I start a new series here on how we can make the most out of our own summers, even if we’ve got kids at home, or even if not much as changed in our working day-to-day. In this first installment, we talk about...

Ep. 129: Re-Learning Stuff (4/4)

We’re wrapping up our series on re-learning things as an adult! Part 1 covered relationships, part 2 was physical health, part 3 was work, and for this last one? We’re tackling education. Not the educational system, nor our kids’ academics — we’re referring to our own...

Ep. 128: Re-Learning Stuff (3/4)

Continuing our series on things we’ve re-learned in our adulthoods, in this episode we’re talking work. Erin and I are both self-employed, so we determine the course for most of our working rhythm — which is both a huge privilege and a responsibility. We talk...

Ep. 124: Social Self-Care (4/4)

We’re wrapping up our series on social self-care with the idea of legacy — but not in a writing-your-will, do-something-amazing way. Haley and I are talking about having a view on life that’s beyond your own short time on earth. This is about leaving things for...
Ep. 123: Social Self-Care (3/4)

Ep. 123: Social Self-Care (3/4)

Yeah, it seems weird to say storytelling is part of self-care, much less social self-care — but hear us out. Haley and I talk about why infusing our lives with good stories makes us better people, and therefore, better members of society. Stories inform our moral...
Ep. 122: Social Self-Care (2/4)

Ep. 122: Social Self-Care (2/4)

Continuing our series on social self-care, this time Haley and I talk about stewardship: caring for the things we’ve been given. What does that look like in real life? It was commonplace for our grandparents’ generation to ‘use it up, wear it out,...
