About Us

Hi, I'm Carrie Gillaspie. I believe our world gets bigger when we bring our whole, authentic selves to the table each and every day. I'm the first to admit, vulnerability and authenticity can be scary words. So how do we forge through the unavoidable heartbreak and scariness that comes with living life?My answer is connection. And not scripted, surface deep connection - real, candid connection. That's where this podcast comes into play. In Candidly Speaking, I bring relatable and authentic interviews, conversations, and messages on self-improvement, wellness, mindset, and motivation all in the hopes of inspiring you to pursue life as your whole, authentic self.

044: Winners and Losers of BIP + Small Changes Making a BIG Impact

Carrie (@carrie.gillaspie) and Bre (@breanna.was.here) get right into the BIP talk. The girls discuss Angela coming to Paradise. Bre is a fan of the extremely cheesy editing tactics used that last couple weeks. Carrie thinks Sydney is too normal for BIP. Bre admits that she's rooting for Tayshia and JPJ's relationship. C and B give their thoughts on Blake's last ditch efforts with Kristina, and Bre is surprised to learn that contestants are PAID to be on BIP. Carrie praises Demi and her vulnerability for sharing her struggle to be out with America. Bre finds the Connor and Whitney fiasco "lame", but is super pumped to have seen a commercial for a plant-based burger during the show! Both C and B feel the extreme awkwardness of Luke S. being denied his rose. Carrie is pretty over Clay and Nicole, and the girls give their predictions for which couples have the best chance to make it outside of paradise. C and B send a big congratulations to last year's BIP faves - Kevin and Astrid - on their engagement, briefly discuss the first photos of Tyler C. and Gigi Hadid showing PDA, and are sad to say they've been a little annoyed with Hannah B. lately. Bre tells us about an amazing teenage activist named Greta Thunberg and how she's taking stand for what she believes in. Full show notes can be found at: www.carriegillaspie.com
