The Avanti Woman

The pandemic has been difficult for all of us.  We’ve all had to adjust to a new way of life, finding creative ways to do things and ‘life’ differently.  Moms, however, particularly ‘working moms’ have had the greatest of challenges.  They had no choice but to wear multiple hats, juggling dozens of roles, striving and working hard to keep the day-to-day operation of their careers, family and kids’ lives as smooth as possible.


In this episode, we hear from 3 amazing women share from their experiences and how they found the strength and courage to juggle it all throughout the pandemic and navigate even more change as the world aims to open up again.


Sara Citak, Anita Gastelum and Rachel LaForce are three phenomenal, do it all, strong women.  These women are not only career women juggling multiple companies, but they’re also moms, wives, cooks, therapists… keeping it together for themselves and everyone else amidst a crazy world that has gone through so much change in the past 2 years and continues on to go through even more change.


Please Remain Calm Podcast

We have comedians, podcasters (Common Ground), married couple, & new parents Rachel LaForce and Alex Gettlin along with baby Jonah, explaining how the baby made it through birth, then how his mom made it. Rachel goes in depth on her first-time mom journey. Everything is going great, so great that the baby won't come out. Rachel gets induced, has a long labor, delivers, then starts to severely hemorrhage & needs emergency surgery. In between we learn about doula's, birth plans, advocacy, massages that become vision quests, shaman women, why OB's are super chill all the time, how to stop a pregnant woman bleeding with your arm, NICU's, giving birth on the nurses last day at work, where to put placentas, what "Full Frat Dad" mode is, plus Danny tells some stories where a home birth went wrong. Rachel & Alex are great guests & really funny, & baby Jonah joins us for the whole show but didn't chime in much. This episode goes full term.

Choose Your Own Religion

Choose Your Own Religion is A PODCAST THAT AIMS TO FOSTER communities where we honor our differences so that we can recognize our similarities, places made of believers of all stripes as well as atheists, skeptics, and people who say, “I don’t know what you’d call me.” Because if I've only learned a single thing in all my Sundays, it's that we all need a community. Even when we make our own path, paths are made so that more people can walk together. So: let us pray. If you're into that kinda shit.

Redford Is a Really Funny Sketch Group That’s (Gasp!) Not From UCB

Tens of views aside, Redford is really good. Accessible, well-acted, and, at many times, laugh-out-loud funny, their material makes me think of watching SNL 15 years ago, when I didn’t think of comedy as a career, and characters hit me in the pit of my stomach.
