What’s Momma Listening to?

I’ve talked about it before, my obsession with podcasts.

Getting to delve into new genres, topics and communities has been just what I needed to change my perspective and to continue my growth as a human being. I can listen to any topic on any day, no matter how I’m feeling and I learn something new.

So, each week I’m going to do my best to showcase one of the many shows I listen to regularly in the hopes that you all might find something new and exciting as well.

I love being able to get the perspective of people I respect and admire, heck, I even look forward to the perspective of those I despise. You know why? It allows me to open my mind.

I am very proud of the fact that I considered myself to be open minded, but I had to stop and really take a look at myself recently. I discovered that I was really only open minded to people that generally agreed with my philosophies and ideologies. It sucked to step back and recognize that in myself. I can’t expect others to open themselves up to a new thought processes or ideals when I’m willing to do the same.

The show that really helped me to see this was Gay Talk 2.0 The Ultimate Podcast. I started listening to the podcast when Nick G, from The Dependent Independent, my wonderful long-distance friend, did a guest appearance. The host of Gay Talk 2.0 are unlike the stereo-type that is often personified in regards to gay men. Continue reading “What’s Momma Listening to?”

Sewing with your left hand should be more fun…


Hey guys!

Have you missed me?

I spent nine days at home for a staycation this year over the holiday and loved every minute! I got to spend all day, every day with my daughter.

It gave me a glimpse of what it would be like to be a stay at home mom. It was bittersweet. It taught me a great deal and gave me even more respect for all stay at home moms.

Being a working mom I feel that more often than not I see my co-workers more than I see my family. But at the same time I feel that I’m teaching Eme early that nothing is without sacrifice.  Continue reading “Sewing with your left hand should be more fun…”

Unpopular Culture…The Interview


14716321_1795993097326627_8850438171436342810_n

Hello friends! I’m so very excited to bring to you my interview with the hosts of Unpopular Culture, a podcast that opens your mind to the world around you. Michael Drane and Corey Stewart are two very profound people and I cannot thank them enough for agreeing to be interviewed.

I’ll tell you, I’m a HUGE fangirl of both of them. I’ve listened to every show and have the honor of interacting with them on Facebook, as well. In fact, I love their show and their message so much that I became a cult-follower and donate money to the show each month in the hopes that it helps them reach a broader audience. They don’t preach or insist; they present you with information – which may be new to you – then discuss it.

The subject matter varies from show to show, but you always learn something new. I personally think that’s one of the most important things in life, learning.

I planned to make this a two part post, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense to combine it and to let you all embrace all that is Unpopular Culture. These two people, along with Justin and Ryan (special co-hosts) have created a space in the podcasting world that is unlike anything I have listened to thus far.

Without any more babble from me…I’m excited to introduce you to Michael Drane and Corey Stewart!!!! Continue reading “Unpopular Culture…The Interview”

Do you #Podcast?


I am addicted!

It started with Serial and has blossomed into everything I can get my hands on!

I actually bought an app. If you know me this is a big deal! It’s called Pocket Casts and I love it! I can search for any podcast out there and I’ll find it.

I had no idea that there were so many to choose from, I have a list on TBLT (To Be Listened To) that’s as long as my TBR list for books. I think I might have a problem.

Anyways, I’m going to list some podcast for you guys in the hopes that you find them as entertaining, educational, thought provoking, etc. as I do. Continue reading “Do you #Podcast?”

Head, Meet Wall….


I’m blocked.

I don’t have any ideas. I have no idea what to write about that might carry any interest. How many people will actually read it anyways? Life is so busy and hectic, who has the time?

I’ve thought about writing about how I feel after being a mom for a full year. Do you want to hear about it? I talk and think about my daughter all the time. She’s my golden moment, my bliss, my exhaustion. Nobody else wants to hear about her that much, and that’s ok! Continue reading “Head, Meet Wall….”
