Joyce is an artist, photographer and founder of the Facebook page “Humanity of Pittsburgh“. We met up because I was being featured on her page for my podcast and I thought it would be fun to record and do a double interview. It turns out, we both come from small towns, not too far away from each other. We discuss our childhood, family dynamic and relationships, experiences in high school, drugs & addiction, dealing with depression and how not being socialized at an early age can make for a very awkward adult life. There was little to no editing for this episode. I ultimately decided to keep all the pauses between conversation to give the listener an idea of how the conversation comes together. Joyce and I both meet strangers to interview and I wanted you to get a feel for how the experience goes. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to rate & review in the iTunes store!

In part 2, Stephanie & I discuss her thoughts about going to Nashville to perform on music row; how she may have to change her “image” to get signed. We also get deep into how she was bullied and she tells you how to really handle people putting you down in your life. We get into acts of kindness and people who brag about doing them, the importance of change in human consciousness, her legacy and how she handled her suicidal thoughts when she was younger. Stephanie also tried out for American Idol and she talks about her thoughts and experiences with that. Thank you so much for listening. See you for part 2 next week!

Stephanie Kong is an 18 year old singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. We met up to talk about her experiences with writing music, suicidal thoughts, bullying, abuse and not finding any place to “fit in”. If you’re looking for inspiration in your life, motivation or if you just need a story to reaffirm your faith in humanity, this is your episode. Stephanie has experienced so many struggles in her life, but her outcome was never tainted. When I started interviewing people, these are the people I wanted to meet and this episode encompasses everything I wanted to achieve. Do yourself a favor and download or listen immediately and send her some love! Thanks for listening.

Primal Soup for the Soul (Part II)

7330754Thanks for tuning in for part 2 with Casey & Annie. We follow the theme of the first part of this episode and discuss “Meetup” and how single people meet partners nowadays. We also talk about role playing, fantasies and expose some of our sexual curiosities like ‘circus sex’. Casey also reveals he has taken a vow of abstinence for the past 6 months due to the frustrations of dating. We also continue to delve into his separation from his wife. Part 1 has been getting some great feedback due to the honesty and vulnerability that Casey & Annie are exposing. It’s not easy to do. Thanks for listening!
