Olivia and her dad, Kevin Harlan, were the first father-daughter duo to call an NFL game on a national broadcast. Olivia is married to professional basketball player, Sam Dekker.

She emphasizes that you have to make your own way in the field, it will never be handed to you. Constant practice, repetition and resilience arethe only way to excel. She dishes the surprisingly unglamorous parts of sideline reporting and gives her personal take on being a woman in a male-dominated space.

So we poured ourselves some wine, jumped on Zoom and recorded our very first, fully virtual podcast. In this episode, we touch base on adjusting to our "new normal." We discuss how it's going re-structuring our days, wrapping our heads around what is going on in our world, and how Tiger King is blowing our minds. We share theups and downs of working from home with our significant others; or in Tash's case, trying to stay out of the way while Nick is onvideo meetings (spoiler alert: she has already failed and embarrassed herself greatly.) We also share tips that have felt helpful combating anxiety and discuss the importance of getting over the "productivity guilt" and allowing ourselves to use this isolation in a way that feels good for our souls. This is a scary time full of uncertainty, but we do know there is light in the future. Hearing others share their feelings have helped us greatly in feeling less alone, and we hope this episode will do the same! Stay healthy, stay safe, stay the f*** inside. xx Dev, Tash & Jess We also chat about: Hilarious things we have found on theinternet Devan's rise to TikTok fame Shows and podcasts that we have been loving How we have been supporting local businesses during this crisis Resources: Bingeable shows: Tiger King, McMillions, Hunters Podcasts: Supernatural Tash's Twitter:@liltashieholbie Feals CBD | Use code SHIFT for 50% off first order Yelp MKE

Currently, he works for Yelp as the Saint Louis Community Manager. We were very touched that he generously agreed to join us to discuss his journey over the past 30 years.He shares the transition that has allowed him to be his true self in his true body. From being a leader in a church where he was perceived as female to now being an open transgender man with a passion for bettering the trans community, he discusses the path that has led him to where he is today. He explains that although loss and hardships took place during this journey, profoundly beautiful and loving relationships with himself and others have grown and flourished in their place. He details his transition timeline, how he and his wife have navigated the changes and the what the next chapters in his story may be. He was unbelievably transparent and kind as he helped us navigate this space by educating and correcting us to be better allies. He explains how changing language, using correct pronouns and showing acceptance and love can help transgender people feel the comfort that they deserve. Max has a profound awareness of his own personal privilege, which motivates him to advocate for the more vulnerable members of the trans community. He is striving to create a world in whichtransgender folk can thrive with no barriers,which is something weshould all stand behind.
