WANTcast 118: Rewriting Your Story with Rebecca Walker and Lily Diamond

the WANTcast

If your favorite therapist, poet, and thought leader got together and had a book baby, What’s Your Story?: A Journal for Everyday Evolution by Rebecca Walker and Lily Diamond would be it. This guided journal doesn’t just give you writing prompts to riff off of – it asks you deep, nuanced questions that get you exploring and morphing your deep-seated narratives. It’s creativity-sparking, obsession-worthy, and most of all, actually life-changing.

What’s Your Story? is an interactive journal for anyone who longs to bring a new story to life and leave behind the tired patterns of their past. Through a series of deeply personal writing prompts, you’ll excavate the stories that have shaped your past and be inspired to write a new, fulfilling narrative for the future.

In this episode, we talk about examining long-held beliefs, setting boundaries, finding a sense of belonging, and so very much more.

117: 4 Steps To A 5-Minute Gratitude Practice

117: 4 Steps To A 5-Minute Gratitude Practice

the WANTcast

We can’t wait for gratitude to come, and can’t just expect it to come naturally all the time (especially in the tougher times). To get fluent in gratitude, you’ve got to have a gratitude practice. And not just in the self-help, pop-culture-mindfulness way: an actual PRACTICE, just like you’d practice a sport or new language, so that when you need it most, you’ll be able to access it. Try this five minute, four-step gratitude practice year-round to strengthen your gratitude muscles.

WANTcast 116: How To Find Your North Star + Plan Your Impact with Christen Brandt of She’s The First

WANTcast 116: How To Find Your North Star + Plan Your Impact with Christen Brandt of She’s The First

the WANTcast

If you want to “make an impact” but either don’t know where to start or get overwhelmed thinking about ALL the places you could start, this episode is the one you’ve been waiting for.

Christen Brandt experienced an upbringing surrounded by women who built one another up as the men around them tore them down. This deeply shaped her perspective on the world. It’s what has made her an ardent advocate for girls’ rights and has allowed her to connect deeply with the girls and women she meets in her travels around the globe. She believes all girls deserve the right to be safe and loved.

In the past decade as She’s the First Co-Founder and Chief Programs Officer, Christen has revolutionized outdated models of philanthropy by shifting power to the most vulnerable. She is skilled at breaking down complex issues with her sharp thinking and nimble action. She puts into words what others want to share and guides others on the journey from intent to impact, most notably in her debut book, Impact: A Step-by-Step Plan to Create the World You Want to Live In.

In this episode, we talk about how to find your “North Star” – that vision that drives your actions – and why the words you choose to describe it are so important, quick-fix solutions vs. long-term systemic change (it’s not the conversation you think it is!), how to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s needed out there, how to find Impact Advisors and mentors, and so much more.

115: Positive Self-Talk Not Working? How To “Be Positive” In The Middle Of A Dumpster Fire

115: Positive Self-Talk Not Working? How To “Be Positive” In The Middle Of A Dumpster Fire

the WANTcast

Trying to flip the script when everything feels like a dumpster fire feels silly at best, tone deaf and demeaning at worst. If you’re trying to force your positive self-talk right now, you might be feeling exhausted, defeated, enraged, lonely, confused, or some kind of special cocktail of all the above ingredients. “Positive self-talk” probably feels pretty empty, and pretty hokey.

It does to me, too. Because the thing is that positive self-talk doesn’t always work.

In this episode we talk about WHY it doesn’t work (I mean, it works SOMETIMES, but usually not when we need it most), and the one thing to do in order to harness real-deal positivity that you’ll actually believe.

WANTcast Episode 114: How Deep Kindness Will Save The World with Houston Kraft

WANTcast Episode 114: How Deep Kindness Will Save The World with Houston Kraft

the WANTcast

Houston Kraft is a speaker, author, and kindness advocate who has spoken at over 600 schools or events internationally. In 2016, he co-founded CharacterStrong to help schools more effectively teach empathy, connection, and kindness. To date, they have worked with over 2500 schools globally serving over 1 million students. 

His new book, DEEP KINDNESS, is a call to action, moving us past the surface level ‘confetti kindness’ marked by cutesy phrases and empty gestures. Featuring a 30-act starter plan, journal prompts, and practical exercises, DEEP KINDNESS dives into the types of kindness the world needs most today, taking an honest look at the gap between our belief in kindness and our ability to practice it well.


(Fun facts: In 2019, his face was featured on Lays BBQ chip bags as someone who helps “spread smiles.” His mom is his hero and her best life lesson is to “hug like you mean it.”)

WANTcast Episode 113: The “No-Rules” Rules For Starting A Podcast Of Your Own

WANTcast Episode 113: The “No-Rules” Rules For Starting A Podcast Of Your Own

the WANTcast

Over the last 5 years I’ve had coffee dates and phone calls and quick-question-for-yous with SO many people who ask me about starting a podcast.

The logistics of podcasting are Google-able and straightforward (I use an Audio-Technica mic, host on Libsyn, and record with either SquadCast.fm or Zencastr).

The stuff that I *really* try to share with people, beyond that, are the things that will make their podcast MAINTAINABLE and JOYFUL instead of an overwhelming time/energy suck.

After a half-decade, I’ve FINALLY put my biggest self-made rules in one place.

While I don’t do things by the book, I attribute the WANTcast’s longevity to sticking to a few specific self-made rules. Here are my top podcasting tips for anyone who wants to know how to start a podcast that comes from the heart.
