HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! The unofficial start to summer has begun today and A + K are gushing about it!

In this episode, A + K comment on the politics surrounding reproduction, and Kristin brings home the point that reproductive rights are complicated.
“My body, my body choice” is not just about abortion. We have a right to birth control. We have a right to a safe gynecologist. We have as right to vaccinations to treat an STD. This idea that people are just “profile” or “prochoice” is nonsense because it is NEVER just that simple.
One in four women have had an elective abortion, and A + K share their personal stories.
It’s a great follow up to our physical health episode and is kind of a continuation of our feminism episode.

Welcome to episode 75! We are three-quarters of the way to having launched 100 episodes and that is a milestone Amanda + Kristin never even imagined they would get to. Let’s go!
Episodes 22 & 31 of the podcast were specifically about MENTAL HEALTH, and with the spring season and swarmer weather upon us, A + K thought it the perfect time for an episode talking about their physical health stories thus far.

Happy Earth Day, lovelies! Amanda + Kristin couldn’t have possibly moved through this season’s theme of GROWTH with a whole episode dedicated to plants and greenery and herbs and fresh, backyards grown produce and all the metaphors for life that can be extracted from your garden.

BABE ALERT! Today we have Erin Maya - the founder, songwriter and lead vocalist of ERIN MAYA AND THE RECKONING, and the back-up singer of NYC’s female melodic-punk band BABE PATROL - on the show. Kristin + Erin went to grammar school together, were both in Girl Scouts, and the two have reconnected for this episode to talk about Erin’s mission as an artist: to give witness to the unseen/unheard; to be part of art that is inclusive because visibility is the beating heart of art.

Amanda + Kristin couldn’t have planned any better that episode 69 (wink, wink) of the podcast would feature our very first MALE GUEST: the one, the only, AUSTIN KLEON! Laaaaaadies! We made it happen!
March 25th, 2019 | Season 4 | 1 hr 2 mins
In this episode, A + K talk about about where they are at with their personal growth. Kristin has been navigating the hills & valleys of her physical health, being a person who is in chronic pain, and shares her thoughts about telling that party of her story.
Amanda attributes her growth thus far to a combination of the intentions she set at the start of Season 3 and what she decided on for her one little word this year. She talks to Kristin about what she’s doing to lay down a SOLID FOUNDATION at this point in her life and deal with all the background ‘stuff’ she’s been struggling with for years.
