Both April and Sophia have backgrounds in writing, and that’s how the two initially met!

Sophia and April also share their own personal journey towards self-love, and how the road to loving their own bodies and self acceptance—it hasn’t always been linear. The girls all laugh over the ways they take a break to digest all of the (at times heartbreaking) media, mainly in the forms of binge-watching new television series.

We have been big fans of Iliza Shlesinger for-ev-er.  Her ability to find humor to connect people around important topics, to stay relevant and inclusive, and to make audiences laugh show after show, is so inspiring.  Iliza has been a comedian for over a decade now, but since winning Season 6 of Last Comic Standing, she has truly been unstoppable and ever-evolving.  With four Netflix comedy specials, a co-star in her first movie out next year, her 5th special on the horizon, and material that is vulnerable, empowering, and hilarious, Iliza is making people laugh and think. . We talk about what it’s like to be recognized in public, positive and negative feedback from society, and what it’s like to be a powerhouse woman in comedy. With Iliza working on a new movie, we also take a minute to laugh over our fake Boston accents!  

 

It’s so refreshing to watch Iliza perform.  Whether she’s in character as a gazelle or herself, there is truth in both.  You can tell she has been herself since day one. Iliza is playful, unbelievably smart, and has worked hard on her way to the top.

 

We also talk about…

  • Letting comments and remarks go
  • The #metoo movement
  • Iliza’s evolution as a comic

Aliza serves as the in-house astrologer and occult story columnist for Allure Magazine, as well as creating the moneyscopes for Cheddar.com.

In our conversation, we talk all about eclipses, retrogrades, and saturn returns - oh my! We also quickly discover the ties that the planetary alignment has with the political atmosphere, relationships, and how we can all use astrology as a window to take a look into the future. Listen up as Aliza gives a glimpse into each planet to helps us all understand our own sign, and why we have the characteristics that we do. The Mixology of Astrology, Aliza’s new book, just came out - be sure to grab a copy to better understand how astrology can be used in all aspects of your life, even down to the happy hour drink you sip on!

This conversation with Adi was so refreshing, and totally necessary given today’s climate. He is very clear with his points, his intentions, and his message surrounding drugs and addiction. Adi Jaffe, PhD, is a research psychologist, addiction specialist, and founder of IGNTD - Igniting Lives Beyond Limits. A nationally recognized speaker and expert on mental health and stigma, he has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Good Morning America, CNN and more. His Tedx Talk on shame has been seen by nearly 500,000 people. Adi’s approach to addiction is so incredible, as he lifts the shame around it to make it more suitable for progression and healing, offering grace in a conversation that tends to have none.

Adi’s own story is beautiful, and we appreciate his openness and honesty in sharing it with us all. We take a deep dive into who Adi was before he met Sophie from selling ecstasy, to struggling with depression, to beginning to experiment with harder drugs, like meth. We hear the differences between the drugs he took, and how with each step he took, the harder it was to break free from the addiction. Adi also shares the reality of trying to rebuild a life after addiction and a criminal record, and the beginning stages of his relationship with Sophie. It is truly their differences that make the relationship strong, balanced, and beautiful. Adi tells us all about his brand new book, The Abstinence Myth, and what sparked this incredible take on the connection between abstinence and addiction.

 

We also talk about...

  • Adi’s motivation to get clean
  • What he learned in jail
  • The 4 factors of addiction  
  • Conversations around shame + how to have them
  • Reframing the idea of an addict
  • An IGNTD success story

We are hanging with our soul sister, the funny + beautiful, Sahara Rose. Everyone in our Secret Facebook group can’t stop talking about our first ever episode with Sahara, over a year ago. With her new GORGEOUS cookbook, Eat Feel Fresh, being released, we knew we had to have her back on. Sahara created this cookbook as a way to bring the beauty of Ayurveda to modern times in easy, accessible recipes that are sure to help you live more aligned with your doshas.

In the episode, you’ll get a run down of the 3 doshas (for a deeper look, listen to our first episode with Sahara), how she brought India to life in the pages of her new cookbook, and why it was important to her to work with local photographers for this project. We all had a good laugh over how Vata Lindsey is, and how Pitta Krista is - but Krista with those beautiful Kapha cheeks and Lindsey spending time on the toilet like a true Pitta, we dive into possible combos! PLUS the why behind the recipes Sahara chose to put in her cookbook. We also dish on dosha’s! Sahara shares why she knew she wanted to be with a Pitta guy, and how her dating experience with a Kapha helped her come to that realization. The two of us just couldn’t love this girl any more.

 

We also discuss...

  • Looking back at Sahara’s transition from her first book to her second  
  • What tri-doshic cooking is
  • The 6 tastes in Ayurveda  
  • Sahara’s favorite recipes in her cookbook
  • Tips on creating powerful passive income

Recent discussions in our Secret Facebook group inspired today’s episode.  So many of you have turned to the group for guidance and advice surrounding the pain of grief and loss.  How do we cope? Does it get easier? When our loved one’s pass, where do they go and how do they feel? Tim Braun is a world-renowned medium who has performed over 15,000 individual sittings across two decades, and has become the medium people connect with to heal in the wake of losing a loved one or immense loss.

 

Tim is so kind, funny, and intentional.  He does not filter what comes through from the other side.  His gift is to bring forth the messages from loved ones passed to those still in the physical world.  Lindsey has been sitting with Tim once a year for about three years. Each time, she experiences deep healing in connecting with her loved ones and friends who have passed.  Often times they have messages for her about what is currently happening in her life, which is immensely comforting and affirming that they are with us always.

 

We discuss…

  • Lindsey and Krista’s reading with Tim
  • Healthy ego + staying within our humbleness
  • When Tim realized he had his gift + how he learned to use it
  • Tim’s aspirations to be a talk show host
  • Getting some answers about aliens, psychics, and more
