Once again, Linds and Krista bring on the best of the health, wellness, and body positivity industries. This week's guest is DANIKA BRYSHA, a curve model with IMG Models, the CEO of Model Meals, a leader in the health and wellness world, and an inspirational rockstar for everyone. Danika has been featured in InStyle, Shape, PopSugar, People, and many more publications. Her story has inspired thousands of women who are struggling with loving their body, their relationship with food and addiction, and transforming their lives.

Danika shares her story, which starts at a young age, battling drug usage, fad chronic dieting, and being "the chubby girl", using her food to process her emotions. But that didn't stop her from being one of the busiest, most successful curve models in the world, after being discovered in a Bank of America. Needless to say, she took her insecurities and built a life for herself off of them.

Some of the most useful food/body tips you'll ever hear from this episode are:


  • drop the FOOD RULES
  • the answer to losing weight is "NOT trying to lose weight"
  • it's never about the food, it's about YOU (your childhood, you mentality about yourself growing up, specific circumstances you were under)
  • don't waste your energy on worrying about food, worry about YOUR DREAMS
  • it's about how you FEEL after you eat food
  • how much the MEDIA REALLY INFLUENCES the way you think about yourself

Pick a card, any card ... because on this week's episode we are joined by shamanic energy medicine practitioner, the official shaman for VOGUE Magazine, and founder of STYLE RITUALS, COLLEEN MCCANN. 

If you're into crystals, tarot readings, spirituality, intuition, spirits, ghosts, EVERYTHING MAGIC, this episode is for YOU.

So for those of you who are new to the tarot card and crystal thing thing, it's basically a visual narrative of your past life, your current life, and your future life, as well as the emotions you are currently dealing with. Krista got a past life card, and she's pretty sure she's dealing with some karmic debt, while Lindsey got a Five of Cups card, meaning she's got plenty o' abundance.

On the other hand, shamans are conduits to things people can't see in the unseen world, and provide messages and healing to those who need it. Shamans can realize they have their gifts at any age, and Miss McCann realized her's in her late twenties. From hearing voices constantly, having premonition dreams, seeing ghosts, and having other healers tell her she had a gift, Colleen knew she had to listen to the voices and put her 15 plus year in the fashion industry to an end.

Although Krista, Linds, and Colleen go over a plethora of spirituality- related topics in this episode, the main takeaway is the importance of dabbling in various practices before you find the one you like. Or the one that "speaks" to you.

CALLING ALL WOMEN WHO FEEL THAT THEY ARE DESTINED FOR GREATNESS.  Seriously, don't look around.  That's YOU.  Hi!  You don't have to apologize for feeling that innate fire and pull toward something bigger.  Give this episode your full attention--you'll be given permission to take ownership of your dreams.  This week the girls are so excited to be sharing their interview with LORI HARDER.  Lori is the host of the Earn Your Happy Podcast, founder of The Bliss Project, author, cover model, three-time fitness world champion, a "self-love junkie", and a woman at the forefront of the "women supporting women" movement.  Her path to success has been a beautiful zigzag of highs and lows, revelations and resistance, self-love and overflowing generosity.  As Janet Jackson says, "WE GO DEEP"...(love you Janet).  Here's what we discuss:

  • How to receive what you need when swimming through the sea of self love books, guru's, programs, video's, practices, etc.
  • Who was early 20's Lori and what did she learn in order to stand in her light and success now
  • When she left home at 18 to essentially break the rules of her religious upbringing to eventually experience the wake-up calls needed to find the freedom and inspiration to follow the call of her soul to do big things
  • How fitness saved her life
  • Why she was the most sad and lonely at the height of her fitness competition career
  • How paying it forward can shift your mindset
  • Why the body doesn't change if the mind doesn't change
  • Her commitment to being a forever student
  • How to effectively set and achieve your goals
  • How writing her book is forcing her to sit with her story and unwrap and reflect on everything and everyone that have brought her to this point
If you connected with this episode, send to a friend who you know would connect with it, too. WE LOVE YOU.

This week's episode is based off of 2 words: HUMAN DESIGN.

No, it's not an anatomy class or a biology lesson. It's all about YOU. Your body, your mind, but most importantly, your AURA and ASTROLOGICAL MAKE-UP. 

Okay, still confused? Krista and Lindsey each receive a human design reading from an expert and spiritual goddess, JENNA ZOE. She spends this episode showing off her craft by helping the ladies make life decisions, control their minds, and get in touch with their bodies.

Human Design uses your birth time and place to calculate your personal Human Design chart. In this calculation, the positions of Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of your birth play an important role. Astrology also uses the birth time and place to generate your natal chart, but it interprets the data differently – and Human Design is not astrology. Time to get ANTHROPOMORPHIC (In the words of our lovely guest)!

Human Design calculates two moments in time. Our birth, which determines our conscious definition and a moment approximately 88 days before our birth (exactly 88 degrees of the sun before the moment of our birth), which determines our unconscious definition. The second; the pre-natal calculation is unique and crucial part of the Human Design revelation.

Miss Jenna Zoe also breaks down the 4 TYPES OF HUMAN BEINGS

  • manifestos
  • generators
  • projectors
  • reflectors

Definitely a note-taking episode, but an insightful one at that!

Krista and Lindsey are joined this week by Courtney Violet Bentley, certified personal trainer behind the blog, "Fit, Fierce, and Fabulous", and Annie Spano, founder of Style Collective, an online community for fashion and lifestyle influencers.  All four of the girls are dedicated to creating a culture where women welcome women and support one another.  As Annie says, she's created a "sisterhood" vibe.  LOVE THAT.  But the girls talk honestly about how their relationships with other women haven't always been so AMAZING.  *AHEM* #HIGHSCHOOL. This is such a good one.  They unwrap some GOLD, like:


    • How to create a culture where women support women
    • What it actually looks like for women to support other women
    • When each of the girls realized the power of their relationships with other women
    • How challenges with other women earlier in their lives inspired and moved them to change their perspective and want to make social shifts
    • How they stay their authentic selves in business and in relationships with women
YO, GIRLS.  We run this mutha.

Ever heard of a Bridesmaid-For-Hire?!?!?! Neither have we, until NOW. Introducing former guest, author, go-getter, and professional bridesmaid, JEN GLANTZ + her BEAU, Adam. She's an OG Almost 30 homie, back and ready to make us all ball our eyes out with the most amazing stories.

If you weren't around when Jen's first episode came out (Episode 3 !!!), she's the original Katherine Heigl from 27 Dresses, people. She put out a Craigslist ad to be a bridesmaid, and now she's professionally a bridesmaid, living her best life, meeting new people and traveling all over.

But now she's ALSO and author! Jen's new book Always A Bridesmaid For Hire was released in February, where she discusses her love life, her passion for her job, marriage, weddings, and everything in between. 

+ POWER COUPLE ALERT: Adam and Jen are as real as it gets when it comes to relationships. Linds and Krista ask them about how they push each other, why they "make each other better" despite the clichés, the healthy fights, and not changing who they are.

And THE BEST & THE WORST of wedding stories you can find in Jen's book! Not to mention, all of the determination, work, and listening to others it took for Jen to finish her book. So buy the book, listen to the podcast, and get fricken inspired #Almost30Nation

The holidays are OVER. And of course, we need to talk about them.

So, this week, Krista and Lindsey discuss the outcomes of their holiday ventures. We’re talking the good, the bad, and the ugly: everything from family, revisiting bad habits, spending Christmas alone, and creating new traditions as a result. 


Did anyone take a cool vaca? Do something by yourself and actually enjoy your own company? Or did y’all visit the old fam' bam and get asked ALL the questions about life and work and relationships? It's okay, we did too.


Krista and Lindsey also bring in a STELLAR caller, Nicole from Boston, who get's real and to the point right away (she get's it). During the call, we get deep and down-to-earth about

  • 2016 was a year of change, but 2017 is the year you make shit happen
  • doing you & not worrying about what other people think
  • surviving & getting out of the "in-between"
  • our SOULCYCLE JOURNEYS! #tapitback #findyoursoulbaby
  • plus and minuses of moving across the country
  • going with your gut & letting your instincts pull you where they will


This week, the girls will help you honor the changes in your life so you can continue to do what you love and love what you do.

Danielle Cuccio, CEO of yoga brand Cuccio Somatology, blogger behind "The Beauty Blender", and yoga teacher to the stars, joins the ladies this week!  This is an in depth convo that covers it recognizing when you are forcing the wrong path, having the guts to sacrifice and follow what excites you, making your passion your business, making your business a strong brand, dealing with the numbers game, handling social media pressures, and so much more.  
The girls take it back to Danielle's early 20's, where her habits and people she was hanging out with did not align with the vision she had for her life.  They track her path, the ups and down, and the unexpected twists and turns.  In the midst of these life changes, Danielle met her husband on  HOW FREAKIN' CUTE.  The girls are fascinated and ask one hundred questions.    
A former aesthetician, Danielle also shares her beauty secrets and favorite products.  OMG PEN AND PAPER THIS SH*T.  Beauty and wellness is her ISH.  Take note!  We also talk vision boarding.  Dreamy.  As always, the girls keep it REAL AF.  They know you will relate to Danielle's dream, drive, and downright realness.        
Jan 26, 2017

YOU GUYS, Steve, our angel baby sound technician, is our special guest this week (and his RAD tunes close out the episode).  How the heck do you make new friends as an adult?  It's awkward AF sometimes, no?  You might have "enough" friends, or you might be in a new city and want to make some new ones, or you might be meeting the same type of people over and over.  Wherever you find yourself on this spectrum, this episode will inspire you to get out there.  The trio compiles a list that you can look to the next time you're bored, lonely, sick of the same old group, alone at the bar.  How about shaking up your routine and following your bliss, mimicking children and not giving a f*ck?  Plus, Steve shares his beautifully weird way of attracting new friends, Krista recounts her session with a hypnotherapist that helped her understand the role her energy plays in attracting new people into her life, and Lindsey shares her experience meeting friends on the DM (hehe).


Jan 24, 2017

The girls are joined this week by their friend Danika Miller, who like them, is a creative living in LA.  They candidly discuss their individual relationships with LA, why this city fills them up one day and can leave them feeling bleak AF in the inspiration department another day.  Why is that?  Is it them?  Is it HIM?! JK.  But the struggle is real when filtered faces and "epic" sunsets flood your social feed on the regular.  Krista, Lindsey, and Danika share their inspo hacks when it comes to pursuing your dreams, making sh*t happen against all odds, rising up from the ashes of a break-up, navigating a filtered Instagram world, and living inspired for others.  The girls give us insight on:  

  • The struggle to create when everything feels copied
  • Aligning with what you believe, while staying creative, while making a living. SAY WHAT?
  • Consumerism and creating.  Do we have to always be SELLING SOMETHING all the time?
  • The power of social media
  • The power of a partner to incite creativity or suck it out of us
  • Unapologetically going after sh*t
  • Maintaining momentum and deepening your commitment to your vision(s)
  • Letting go of what's not working
We go deep.  An intimate convo for the masses.  For the record, this podcast is inspired by you.  Thank you for listening and for writing in.  ALMOST 30 LOVES YOU.

Put on your robe, whisk some matcha tea and get your notebook ready.  Kelly LeVeque of Be Well By Kelly, Celeb Holistic Nutritionist, author, and overall bad-ass entrepreneur joins the girls this week for an in-depth discussion about all things nutrition.  Jessica Alba and Chelsea Handler swear by Kelly's approach to health and nutrition.  If you want to feel empowered when planning and eating your meals, this episode is for YOU.  Her tips and insight are fad-free and easy to incorporate into your busy lifestyle.  Kelly's goal is to have you feeling confident in the way that you eat.  Oh and she shares with us some of her favorite (and famous) Be Well Smoothie recipes.  HELLO EASY BREAKFAST.


Kelly teaches us how to turn off the hunger hormones in our body with a fun, simple requirement for every meal that she likes to call "The Fab Four".  Wait, hold up, we have hunger hormones that can be TURNED OFF?!  Literally, the girls have been Fab Four-ing it since they recorded and have both felt the shift in their cravings and energy.  Krista and Lindsey are also curious about juicing.  What's the deal?  Why do people want to run over squirrels and tend to snap at their colleagues while juicing?  Spoiler alert:  Kelly hates juice cleanses.  She tells you why.  


The girls dial it back and find out what lead Kelly to build her successful wellness brand.  How long was she moonlighting her business while working in cancer and genetics before she took the leap to focus on Be Well by Kelly full time?  Where did she find inspiration and support?  Why she is obsessed with education...and so much more.  To be honest, you may want to listen to this one a few times through to fully digest this yummy interview.  Bad joke, amazing episode.  LOVE YA.  P.S. Kelly's new book "Body Love" is out this June!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!  Almost 30 Nation is growing every day and we are so grateful.  The girls dream about grabbin' a brewski with each and every one of you to express our thanks.  But they don't really drink beer and traveling to 34 countries would be uh #GOALS.  If they could, they would.  But, YOU GUYS RULE.  For now, e-mail them!  They answer.

Anyway, did anyone else need like a week to collect their thoughts and wrap up whatever the hell happened in 2016?  THE GIRLS, TOO.  But now, NOW, they're ready to reflect, set their goals, and proceed mindfully into the new year.  2017.  JEEZ, weren't we supposed to be sleeping in tubes by now?  

Krista and Lindsey are legit catching up on the pod this week.  They share just how awesome CHILLIN' on the eve really is.  One of us didn't make it to midnight.  GUESS WHO!  But seriously, chillin' over Dom Perignon showers at the club any day. #ALMOST30.

In this episode, the girls go deep and discuss:

  • How to reflect..IT'S A PROCESS.
  • How to shift the focus from what didn't get done to what did and what will NOW
  • What the girls learned last year
  • What they want to incorporate more of this year
  • How to set goals and commit to them (GOD DAMNIT!)

You're going to turn challenges into positive shifts this year....If you answer yes to these questions, LISTEN NOW:  Do you have trouble asking for help?  Are you repeating a self-sabotaging story to yourself or people in your life?  Are you living at a million miles per hour without a clear idea as to why you are doing things?  Do you have ZERO boundaries with people in your life?  The girls are holding their hands up, too.  The discussion is, as always, honest and raw.  Set your goals and intentions with Krista and Lindsey this's NEVER TOO LATE.  

Jan 3, 2017
This weeks' podcast is back with the classic format, both Krista and Lindsey are together this week to chat about their youth, and what it REALLY means to be an awkward kid. Like, no teeth, and LICE vibes. Sexy, right?
Starting out we talk about what to do when you're not feeling 'hundred'. Forcing or fronting a feeling isn't needed. When the holiday season is in full swing, tensions are high and it's challenging to stay grounded. There is a tendency to over commit, and overworked. When you're working all year and losing inspiration, as a creative, it's challenging to find that spark and that excitement and bring it everyday. The girls talk strategies to stay motivated, grounded and inspired. No matter what field you're in, staying 'inspired' means staying in the game of life. 
Our question this week comes from a listener who is writing in about a mysterious object found lady parts. After that initial shock they run through the real question, about expectations, and what each one of us 'deserves' in relationships. 
It's another buffet of hilarious stories, and relevant insights from The Almost 30 crew. Thanks for subscribing, rating and reviewing! We love you!

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN.  Well, they never left, but the girls bribed them with goldfish crackers and beer to come back and hang.  ZACH JOHNSON (eligible bach, funny AF, kind, former Mormon) and JUSTIN HALL (he belongs to Krista so don't freakin' ask!...jk he's amazing) join the girls this week for a hilarious round of "Would You Rather"...Topics include:
