THE INTERVIEW

This week we’re bringing back an interview we had with Rachel Cargle in December of 2018 because it is incredibly relevant to things that are happening in our world today. She has done an amazing job building a platform and resources for people, she raises money for marginalized communities, and she hosts The Great Unlearn on Patreon. We’ve talked about white fragility, white supremacy, allyship, and the issue of race, and these are all things that need to be brought back to the forefront. Rachel is doing so much to show us how to engage with white supremacy, how we as white people play a huge role in the race conversations going on, and how we can be better to support anti-racism. We need to work together against the system that has created this huge rift in society. We have so much power, we need to use that power for good.

 

We also talk about:

  • Deciding to start teaching what she was learning 
  • Her college experience 
  • Where to start in order to make a difference
  • Social media posting being taken down 
  • Rachel answers questions from Almost 30 Nation
  • Example of modern-day colonization   
  • What Rachel is excited about

THE INTERVIEW

Welcome back to the podcast, John Wineland! He is an icon for everything conscious relationships and intimacy - he is one of our absolute FAVORITES. And he’s here to share about how our nervous system is the central point connecting our spirit, our mind, and our body. Who said science can’t be sexy? Our nervous system responses are what lead us to believe emotions are there when what we’re really experiencing is just a natural reaction, and understanding that is key to changing your relationship karma. We also check in with John about his daughter passing and how he’s processing grief.

 

We also talk about:

  • The values brought by masculine and feminine energy
  • Your posture reflecting your thoughts
  • Working on yourself from the outside in

THE SOLO

Confidence is so key. Yes, we’ve all heard it before, but some things are cliché for a reason. K + L each offer three tried-and-true tips for being more confident, all born from their personal experiences. But remember — confidence is always going to be something personal to you. It doesn’t have to look the same as someone else, and it doesn’t even have to look like sunshine and rainbows. Confidence is something you work on getting closer to, and you never quite get there fully, but it’s so worth working towards all the same.

 

We also talk about:

  • Working towards confidence
  • Facing hard things
  • Finding quiet to hear our own voices
  • Channeled writing
  • Appreciating your body
  • Engaging in self-care
  • Looking back on your progress

THE SOLO

K + L have been wanting to connect with the community two-on-one for a while and are so excited to finally share the first of many conversations in their new series, “Community Call”! We’ve been wanting to hear from YOU - Almost 30 nation - and how you’ve been impacted by the show, taken the messages shared by guests or other members of the community, and have made serious, positive changes in your life. Joining them this week is Emily Feikls, who first discovered the podcast when she was 18 and struggling with finding like-minded friends in her rural town. At the time, Emily felt like an outsider, like she didn’t belong to any community — but she felt an instant connection to #ALMOST30NATION as soon as she found it. She then took small steps to take control of her life and live in her truth - including attending last year’s retreat and starting her very own podcast and community. Emily is an inspiration, modeling for all of us how you can alchemize pain + grief into a beautiful life that you love.

 

We also talk about:

  • How an 18-year old gets into Almost 30
  • Feeling like an outsider in your geographical community
  • Finding your voice
  • Leaving your comfort zone
  • Feeling support within an online community

  • Why we crave social connection

THE SOLO

Trust is so, so important in any healthy relationship — that’s obvious, right? It shouldn’t be any different when it comes to ourselves. Trusting yourself and the way you live your life is transformational. We all reach a moment where it’s time to break up with this expectation — whether from our parents or someone else — of how our life was supposed to go and to trust ourselves to live life the way we want. Lindsey shares her experience making the transition from not trusting herself to a more consistent and confident level of trust and the three practices she follows to help build that self trust every day.

 

We also talk about:

  • The experiences that damaged Lindsey’s self trust
  • What trusting yourself (or not) looks like
  • The ways you can strengthen your trust
  • What happens when you trust yourself

THE INTERVIEW

Ramit Sethi’s book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, is an absolute game-changer in the finance world. He is charismatic, grounded, and relatable — not to mention one of the most progressive voices in the financial literacy and wellness space. He does not sugar coat things, and when it comes to finances and getting really good at managing them, you have to be real about it. He infamously pushes back against the tired advice of “cutting out lattes” in order to save money. Instead, Ramit focuses on indulging in the things you actually care about and noticing when you spend money on things you don’t really care about.

 

We also talk about:

  • How to get over making excuses when it comes to finances
  • The connection between human behavior and finance
  • Getting your finances together in your 20’s
  • Creating money rules around “yes” instead of “no”
  • Stop worrying about things you shouldn’t
  • How your spending changes as you grow
  • Saving can make you feel free
  • Making real money through investing
  • Writing a prenup
  • Why buying a house isn’t always better than renting

THE SOLO

Instagram loves to kindly remind us of photos we’ve taken in the past, which can be great! But it can also invite us to criticize and compare ourselves. When this happened to Krista, what she noticed so clearly was the ways in which her body has changed over the past few years — namely, weight gain.

A few months ago, Krista was in New York City reflecting on the habits and mentalities around her body and how she has shifted away from the behaviors that kept her at the lowest weight she’s ever been. She has been learning how to live with her new body and wanted to share how she deals with body image issues, how her relationship with her body has changed over time, and some tips and resources regarding health and diet.

 

We also talk about:

  • How being okay with your body is an act of defiance
  • Mindset is the problem, not body
  • The energy we waste worrying about our bodies
  • Motivating yourself to do what you know is healthy
  • Answering your questions about body acceptance
  • Not letting the patriarchy win

THE INTERVIEW

Debra Silverman is on to give us a much-needed astrological update on what’s currently happening in the world. She shares what was written in the stars when the virus came and things started to shift, when it looks like we’re going to get out of it, what every sign needs to be doing during this time, what transitions in astrology we need to be aware of over the coming year, and what the new normal will look like on the other side of this. (Don’t worry too much. There’s opportunity there.) We close the episode out with a beautiful prayer, a mic-drop moment that we hope will help you open up to the power of prayer and meditation as you move forward through this crisis.

 

We also talk about:

  • What the stars are telling us is coming
  • Moving into the Age of Aquarius
  • How the different signs need to react to this

She’s an unshakable force, even during this period of uncertainty, and she is fully anchored in what we need to do to move through it. Her activism is a call to action for what needs to be done.

  • The climate we are in today
  • Who we are going to transform into

Remember, all of the things that are happening in the world right now will pass as we step into our light. If you need some support in these times, you can find a community of super supportive women in the secret Almost 30 Facebook groups.

 

THE INTERVIEW

Julie Nguyen lived the first 30 years of her life believing that her health problems were chronic and incurable. When she realized that changing her diet improved her mood, her eczema, her weight, and her happiness, she had to share that life-changing info with others.

Julie devoted her life to making healthy, tasty food and nutrition education more accessible through Methodology, an innovative company that delivers fresh, chef-curated food to your door. Not all heroes wear capes, and not all medicine comes in capsules.

The truth is that most of us already know that there are things in our lives that we really shouldn’t put in, on, or around our bodies, but there’s such a disconnect between what we know and what we do. We dig into why this disconnect exists, break down what it means to live a genius life, argue the merits of plant-based diets, and learn the heart-wrenching story behind why Max became so invested in the relationship between our food and our cognition.

 

We also talk about:

  • How unhealthy foods often make the most outlandish health claims
  • The plant-based trend
  • The massive problem with food waste
  • Why everyone should prioritize protein
  • What to look for when you are consuming animal protein
  • Integrating rest into your life + optimizing your sleep
  • White fat vs brown fat
  • The effects of melatonin on the body
  • Toxins, plastics, + endocrine disruption

THE SOLO

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been overwhelmed. 🙌 At some point or another it’s a feeling we’ve all had to uncomfortably confront — you’re not alone. In today’s solo episode with Lindsey, she shares how she has dealt with the feeling of overwhelm head on. Although it is tempting to avoid, Lindsey has learned to embrace the feeling because it is one of the most powerful opportunities for growth that the Universe gives us. When we’re open to understanding how and why it happens, we can harness that energy and turn it into something incredible.

Lindsey has been feeling this ebb and flow of overwhelm over the past two years, and with that consistency, she had to ask: What is the purpose of this overwhelm? She shares the answers that came through during a channeled writing session with her higher self, why she avoided overwhelm for so long, and 3 tips for reframing the idea of being overwhelmed.

 

We also talk about:

  • Where we learn that overwhelm is bad
  • How overwhelm is a challenge to our ego + why that’s a gift
  • Doing the inner work necessary to understand why you are avoiding overwhelm
  • Increasing your tolerance for overwhelm
  • Using breathwork to center yourself
  • Harnessing your daydreams

THE INTERVIEW

Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt joins us today for a conversation on forgiveness. Her new book, The Gift of Forgiveness, gives readers an opportunity to deeply understand the act of forgiving and how doing so can positively affect everyone involved. But let’s be real: Forgiveness is SO layered. It requires us to be vulnerable, release the ego, and allow change. Katherine’s book speaks to those layers and how we can work out our “forgiveness muscle” daily. Newly married, Katherine gushes about her relationship with Chris Pratt and shares how forgiveness will always play a huge role in their relationship. We are all going to be faced with opportunities to forgive, and Katherine’s hope is that, by reading the inspiring stories of those who were able to forgive in situations you wouldn’t imagine, you will be able to move forward in practicing forgiveness in your life.

 

We also talk about:

  • Her book, I Just Graduated… Now What? and why she felt inspired to speak to this formative time
  • How Katherine got over her fear of sharing details about her life
  • How forgiveness can be a gift you give yourself
  • How to ask for help + advice when you need it
  • The process of finding stories for her book
  • The physicality of holding on to anger
  • Times when you don’t have to forgive
  • Forgiveness within relationships
