After wrapping up our One Year In series, we reflect on how we're feeling after a year of pandemic living. As three moms working remotely, we're struggling under expectations of being constantly "on" and available in all areas of our life ... but who's actually putting the pressure on? (Hint: it's us.) We realize that while we're amazing enough to be superwomen who do it all, it's healthy and necessary to take a break -- so we're taking next week off from the podcast! See you in 2 weeks!
This week we wrap up our “One Year In” series with guest Ryan Haack, speaker, advocate and author of the children's book, "Different Is Awesome!" We quickly found that Ryan is a fantastic storyteller — and does he have some great stories to tell! Tune in to hear how he came to write his book about living with one hand, how the pandemic has affected his school speaking engagements, and that one really awkward time he got banned from Facebook!
This week brings us yet another wonderful guest for our “One Year In” series! Andrea Keapproth, massage therapist and owner of Resolution Health Collaborative in Madison, tells us what it’s like running a business that focuses on person-to person contact during a pandemic. Andrea shares her holistic approach to wellness, impresses us with her calm vibe and definitely makes us want to stop in at Resolution for a massage and some sauna time.
Today’s episode continues our “One Year In” series with Hathaway Terry-Pogue, co-owner and director of promotions for Ale Asylum, Madison’s first microbrewery and the source of some of Madison’s favorite local beers. We had so much fun (and some good laughs) chatting with Hathaway about Ale Asylum’s creative response to the pandemic in the form of a new beer named FVCK COVID, how they’ve weathered the past year, and how she’s enjoyed forming relationships with other leading women in the local brewing community.
We have another amazing guest for our “One Year In” series this week! Nicole Benedicto Elden, assistant director of Student Counseling Services at The Graduate Center of The City University of NY, talks to us about her experiences over the past year helping grad students through their unique struggles and the difficult changes brought on by life during a pandemic. We were fully impressed with Nicole, who did all this virtually, balanced motherhood on top of it ... and even finished writing a book!
