WANTcast 078: Keep Going Or Shut Down with Jennifer Pastiloff

WANTcast 078: Keep Going Or Shut Down with Jennifer Pastiloff

the WANTcast

Jennifer Pastiloff’s debut memoir, On Being Human, is set to release on June 4th, and it’s already getting massively well-deserved buzz. Centered around the touchstone stories Jen tells in her popular workshops, On Being Human is the story of how a starved person grew into the exuberant woman she was meant to be all along by battling the demons within and winning. It’s about how years of waitressing taught her to seek out unexpected beauty, how deafness taught her to listen fiercely, how being vulnerable allowed her to find love, and how imperfections can lead to a life full of wild happiness. The world is about to watch her explode. And so, before they do, I wanted to give you all a chance to meet her, so you too can say you knew her “way back when.”

jennifer pastiloff quote

In this episode we talk about navigating trauma and grief (especially from unexpected death), feeling worth and building confidence when all you feel is worthless, and shifting from a mindset of expecting to be disappointed to expecting to be delighted.

075: Living Your Best Life + Getting Healthier Together with Liz Moody

the WANTcast

Today’s guest is a leading voice in the wellness industry who champions the kind of wellness we should all be striving for: the kind that’s got a BACKBONE.

liz moody healthier together wantcast

Liz Moody is a writer, editor, host of the Healthier Together podcast, recipe developer, and the author of two healthy cookbooks: Healthier Together and Glow Pops. She’s a fierce advocate for mental health and emotional intelligence, a fiction enthusiast who encourages you to not only embrace the power of your imagination but also experience stories that AREN’T like your own, and a firm believer that community and connection are at the heart of living a life that’s truly lived well.

In this episode we tackle mental health and how anxiety might show up for you, chasing your dreams, nurturing healthy relationships, why community is an integral part of wellness, what it actually means to “live your best life,” real vs. pseudo inspiration on the internet and beyond, and more.

WANTcast 067: Rethinking Influence, Impact + Healing with Jessica Murnane

the WANTcast

This episode should be subtitled “The Conversation That Gave Me A Vulnerability Hangover.” And that’s exactly why I love talking to Jessica – she’s a pro at being kind, inclusive, AND pushing you to examine your belief and your norms at the same time.

Jessica Murnane is an author, women’s health advocate, host of the One Part Podcast, and founder of endometriosis awareness platform Know Your Endo AND One Part Plant, a movement that’s all about eating one plant-based meal a day to make a big difference from small changes.


In this episode Jessica and I talk about depression, moving through mental and physical health struggles (especially in our “sharing” culture), her endometriosis advocacy, being an influencer vs having influence, fitting in with the other people in your industry, how the new-age wellness industry can step up their game and how YOU can help, and – my favorite – making change happen and creating impact out there in the world, FAR from the online space.
