Ann Adams: Birthing in the 70's, Part 1

EThough much of women's birthing experiences has changed since the 70's, some has stayed the same... like when the thought: “I don’t want to do this anymore” hits right around transition.

3 Wise Women: Interview with Octogenarians

EIn this episode, you will hear the voices of women who have over 230 years between them. We talk about everything from growing up in a rigid Catholic household and how it affected sexuality, to why we still want to please our parents even when we have our own kids, to living with an alcoholic who was a hero of the community. Oh, and doctors refusing to prescribe birth control to married women. !! We talk about my aunt’s non-profit (avisionforcleanwater.org)to get remote villages clean water and a family member who chooses a life as a cloistered nun with little contact with the outside world.Listen up for quotes like this: “I was livid at myself for having allowed myself for that many years to rely on somebody else to make my moral choices." Fascinating women.

3 Wise Women: Interview with Octogenarians

Lori DuRussel, Armchair Experts on the Big Questions

EMy sister and I analyze the ins and outs of growing up Midwest “nice” with an emotionally challenged atheist Dad in a home where a lot of feelings got buried. Where does all that unexpressed anger go? How do we know when our feelings aren’t totally irrational? We dive into other questions like do you trust destiny when your life is on the line?We discuss surviving Stage 3 breast cancer, the violent rage that sometimes comes with Reactive Attachment Disorder and how to protect your other children from it, a miracle pregnancy, anxiety, depression, quantum physics and more. We started off by picking up the thread of a chat we had already been having… How we filter our own emotions…. to see if it’s valid before expressing it and then expressing it in a way that won’t ruffle feathers. WAKING UP is hard sometimes. This conversation details the inner process we all at some times go through to give ourselves permission to feel.

Discrimination in Schools

EI recorded this episode before Covid, before global protests, before things changed in our lives and minds in such a big way. This episode raises some questions that are essential to look at as we consider restructuring our schools….namely, how do we bake equality into the fibers of the new systems we will be creating? In this hour, I talk with my mom and sister about discrimination in schools. My sister is the mom of both white kids and kids of color. She has some thoughts and stories about what her kids went through navigating through school as minorities. My mom has decades of experience working in public schools.
