96. Colin Bedell of Queer Cosmos: Discerning Values to Create a Life Worth Living!

Bevin: A Femme Over 40 and her Friends

138. (Solo) Gossip! What it is and why I avoid it!
You've probably heard the saying that gossip is the thief of abundance and joy. I noticed in my early adulthood that friends I connected to through gossip ended up being untrustworthy. (If they'll do it with you they'll do it to you.) Because I wanted to level up my vibe and my association I got very clear about what gossip is versus what it is not, and set boundaries about the type of information sharing I will participate in. I talk about these lessons and why I decided to build a bionic bullshit detector. Hopefully these lessons will help you discern who you invest your energy with and examine your intentions!  If you find value in this podcast, please consider supporting!

136. (Solo) Diagnosing Myself with ADHD from Memes on Instagram Dot Com
It was undeniable to me that my brain was likely ADHD when my favorite productivity expert received her diagnosis. Why did her systems work so well for me? I started to recognize the signs because I had done lots of work on myself to embrace neurodivergence and different ways to thrive in this world that stigmatizes differences and mental health. Hopefully my story will help you create sovereignty over how you perceive your brain/body/life/experiences.  This podcast can only happen because of support from listeners like you!

130. (Solo) Developing Intuition
Intuition is data processed too fast for our logical mind to understand. My intuition is the biggest topic I have in therapy because sometimes it feels BONKERS to me to go against my logical mind. Learning to trust myself, my inner knowing, my connection to Source has been one of the singular most important skills I have. My primary goal as a mom is to teach my kids to follow their inner knowing. The past two weeks my intuition has saved me from burn out by guiding me to rest more. I've gotten so creative during this time and it's been really helpful. I hope this episode helps YOU! (P.S. I had an interview scheduled that I intuitively knew was going to get rescheduled! HA!)

128. Jennifer Axcell: Building Back after Burn Out
I love the saying that God first speaks in a metaphor and then a two by four? That reminds me of burn out. Burn out is our body's alarm system telling us we need a full control alt delete reset! My friend Jennifer Axcell is an amazing entrepreneur with a big heart. Her desire to serve so much burnt her out and she's spent the past year rebuilding. She uses plant medicine, including psilocybin, to intentionally self care back from burn out. Her work now is to empower other entrepreneurs to do the same. She's also an identical twin (Gemini!) which has influenced some of her most profound realizations. Enjoy this conversation and I hope it inspires you to take breaks and create intentional rest!

127. (Solo) I'm Not Done Talking About Grieving My Dad
Grieving my dad brought up grief I didn't have the tools to process at the time. My step mom Liz died when I was 19. I could have anticipated that his death would bring it up but I didn't. However, grieving her freshly has been surprisingly pretty sweet and inspired me to take some big action in my life to develop myself into a more loving person--like she was.

124. (Solo) The Complicated Grieving of my Deadbeat Dad
My dad passed away one month ago and I've learned a lot on the ground walking through this grief. Every grief is an opportunity to open up to more loving on the other side of the pain. I have also learned you gotta walk through the pain or you end up paying for it with interest. The father/daughter relationship I had already grieved for quite some time but you can't outsmart the pain of actual death. Part of what helps me get through the hardest days is knowing that I can teach from the pain. Hopefully this can help you when you next need a pal in grief. Sending lots of love!!

When Deidra came back to the community from having been down for a month with Covid, she declared, "Rest is my LOVER." She needed epic amount of rest for her body to recuperate and it has ignited a newfound redirection in how she prioritizes the needs of her body versus productivity. Since she's my favorite person to talk about plant based foods I wanted to talk about living my best life air frying plants (especially potatoes!!) and the best vegan dips! Really Deidra loves dips and drops some great recipes. She's also a multi-hyphenate entrepreneur and the lifestyle of the entrepreneur is definitely a risk taking one and we talk about taking command of your life, your dreams by stepping away from the 9 to 5 grind.

I noticed I was having massive resistance to setting goals and using a planner. Turning myself from a stressed out Type A person to being more of an "in the flow" artist was life saving for me, but I also recognize my big dreams won't come true if I don't take action. I got curious about my resistance to goals and using planners and recognized shame was holding me back! Shame is something we learn from people and systems.

We live in a world that teaches us to people please, say yes to everything and run on other's priorities. Having values clear makes being unique easier! And we are all unique by design!

100. My Mom Marianne! Single Mom Raising a Bullied Child in the School System
For this 100th episode of the podcast I wanted to create something valuable for folks. How I've healed from a really traumatic childhood with caregiver abuse and bullies is possibly my greatest achievement. My mom went through a lot of hardship raising me as a single mom, including the fact that I was frequently bullied (for my weight and for just being different). I wanted to talk through some of her experiences in case it helps anyone out there who is raising or will be raising kids. Especially in navigating the school system, as my mom became a teacher and then took on advocating for the at risk kids she taught in her classroom.

99. (Solo) Erika Jayne, Kathy & Paris Hilton, and Jinger Duggar Vuolo
As a former attorney I have so many thoughts about Erika Jayne and what she's going through with her divorce from Tom Girardi. It's all playing out on this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I tried to quit watching housewives and made it almost a year and a half but now that I have access to it I couldn't help but dive in to find out from Erika the truth of her relationship. I'm surprised to realize the work I've been doing on rooting out patterns of emotional abuse in my own life play into how I perceive their relationship and the lawsuits against Erika. My recent retread into RHOBH this season means I've gotten to witness--and fall in love with--Kathy Hilton. She's hilarious and relatable as someone who seems to enjoy chill and worthwhile conversation as much as I do. She's the mother of Paris and after watching Paris' documentary about being abused and traumatized at a boarding school for troubled teens I have so many thoughts about both of them and what happens when you repress a child's natural personality. I'm reading the book Wired that Way and highly recommend it as a guide to learning how to love the different people around you! Finally Jinger Duggar Vuolo was recently on a podcast talking about growing up famous on a reality show and simultaneously incredibly sheltered and how her life is unfolding in Los Angeles. It's a must-listen if you've ever been a Counting On / 19 Kids and Counting fan.  Links!

98. Rachel Kimsey: Chicken Chat with Wonder Woman
Rachel Kimsey and I have been friends in law for over two decades! She's a voice and motion picture actress (she voices Wonder Woman in Justice League) in addition to being an intentional mom of two toddlers and pregnant with her third. Her mindful body positive parenting, her wise reflection on her life and choices and her current homesteading are so inspirational to me. She was raised Mormon and went to BYU but as her world perspective grew she made more choices that were in alignment with her own life path. Her story of family connection through shifting faith is so beautiful. Rachel Kimsey is a great example of risking vulnerability and authenticity in exchange for a beautifully satisfying life.  The chicken drama of the past few months is SUCH an amazing tale--don't miss the chicken chat in this episode!

Content Warning: Suicide. I've been suicidal several times in my life. As a former lawyer I learned firsthand why the profession has four times the national rate of suicide. I struggled to fit myself into boxes that weren't made for me and suffered significantly with my perception of what others thought of me. A potent tool I use to help myself guard and change my thoughts during the dark and difficult times is a list of things I can do *right now* to shift my thoughts or emotional experience. I create or revise the list when I'm doing mentally well so that it becomes my "break glass in case of emergency" list. In this episode I go through my newest list so you can get ideas for yours, share my experience and observations of my experience with suicidal thoughts.

Since I became an aerobics instructor the most common question I get from folks is "I'm Worried About My Loved One's Health, What Should I Do?" "I want this person to do your aerobics class." Well, here's my answer to how I think you should approach your experience with your friend.  Content warning, in the latter part of the episode I'm processing my friend choosing to end their life via suicide and if I could have influenced Nyrie's mental health practices I would have. They asked for my advice frequently, I gave it, but they didn't take action.  It is a devastating reckoning about my own experience with mental health.  I hope you know that shame is what keeps us from real human connection and life experience.

Diet culture will have us believe that losing weight is always a good thing, and that we are unworthy of love when we fail to meet arbitrary, ever changing beauty standards. I have been involved in the body liberation movement since 2002 and weight changes are part of the process of life. Post partum bodies are frequently under attack from unrealistic expectations upheld by folks with lots of resources a regular person doesn't have access to. I process my experience going to a new doctor, getting weighed, being surprised at the numbers and figuring out how to feel aligned with myself and God rather than receiving "nonpliments" from well-meaning people who are tracking my body size.

An update six months into the Coronapocalypse! I checked in with Chrissy at the outset of the Corona Virus in episode 29, so I thought it would be fun to get her to update predictions six months into the pandemic. All hell broke loose methodically--not as fast as originally predicted. The painful things happening will make sense. "I have figured out as a human how to just sit down with all of the feelings and not center my fear." We talk about releasing judgment and criticism.

52. (Solo) Releasing Habits that No Longer Serve You
During my adult life I have released a bunch of habits that no longer serve me: nail biting, self hate, shaming my own body, toxic codependent romantic obsession, investing in friendships that don’t nourish me, drinking coffee, drinking alcohol, sugar, dairy, soy, gluten, for a time corn, late night netflix binging, criticizing people I love and more! In this episode I talk about how I did that, my mindset and tons of advice for releasing habits that aren't serving you and focusing on habits that nourish instead. But first and foremost, you're valuable just as you are and nothing needs to change for you to be worthy of love! (And love creates a great environment for change where shame creates a toxic environment for change!) Support the podcast: Bevin on Instagram:

"...there's a lot about my life that's bothered me but I couldn't do anything about it. I just had to survive. You're going to have to find a way to survive me walking through the halls in hair and make-up."  Dylan Hill grew up in North Carolina a local performer while going through a tumultuous childhood. He began wearing make-up to high school because it made him happy and expressed himself. "Even if you don't agree with my lifestyle I don't judge yours. I just live and let live."  Dylan is a singer, performer, stand-up comic, and now Instagram talk show host. Dylan is one to watch!

Part pep talk on the road to being your true self, part how-to manual, I break down what people pleasing is and what we can do to leave this behind. In this episode I break down how I shifted my mentality from people pleasing (ego) to living my authentic self (spirit). I could talk for hours about how much people pleasing is ingrained in us culturally. I really worked to distill this to action on what we can do to support living out our true selves.  Release constantly worrying what other people are thinking and feeling.

47. Jeff Scult "When we choose to listen to ourselves we are golden"
Jeff Scult left the busy world of mainstream advertising to entrepreneurialism where he learned "Getting cool with uncertainty" but got really sick. He realized that locked up inside "shoulding all over himself" was someone inspired to create and make real human connections.  "It's a beautiful thing to realize the magic is in co-creation. We're always better together." His movement One Golden Thread, born from a poem by the same name, eventually morphed into a unique clothing line. Unisexy and unisize, the colors derive from his mother's paintings of nature. The fabric is a cutting edge sustainable material that feels like nature's cashmere. "You just want to hug yourself all the time." This is the most philosophical episode of the podcast yet! Fear is not the enemy, it's our resistance to fear that's the enemy. When we choose to listen to ourselves we are golden. We talk about staying in the joy of creativity in spite of the obstacles or scope of what you're working on.

Trystan Reese helps clients get out of defensiveness and fragility and open up to meaningful change. He's an anti-racism coach and a consultant who helps organizations be more inclusive to diverse populations.  Trystan went viral a couple of years ago when he gave birth to his son. Coming out as trans was a journey--in the 90s we didn't have a lot of role models in the media for what was possible in gender and sexuality. Trystan's coming out story is the funniest I've ever heard.  "My calling on this planet is to bring balance. Too few people have too much power and my life has been about wrenching the power from those hands and more evenly distributing it amongst the people." He hacked insecurity by committing to getting 1% better everyday. I hope you'll enjoy our conversation, laugh and be empowered to more accountability in your relationships!

44. McKay Gordon "I give my body permission to move and take up space"
"When I feel witnessed and supported by someone it's because they see me as not man or woman but 'other.'" McKay experienced internal dystopia as a young person growing up in conformist culture. Raised as a Mormon in a small town in Idaho, McKay was seriously depressed by twelve years old. "My experience in my body was violent." That became disordered eating. McKay says about their recovery, "I literally feel like I live in a different body because I have fun and joy in my body now. That was about giving myself permission to move and take up space."  They were also a Whiffenpoof at Yale and went on a Mormon mission--they have had their fill of frolicking with boys wearing a suit. McKay teaches dance aerobics, spin and helps people create homes through design and organization. We talk about the magic and healing of dance for the body, reclaiming shame and self determination.

Meghan Tonjes has been a singer-songwriter and you tube sensation for fifteen years. She knows a thing or two about living life out loud, but more so she knows how to navigate having BIG FEELINGS (Scorpio sun, Cancer rising, Pisces moon) and setting boundaries. She had to cut out a toxic family member and shares her story. We talk money, shifting sexuality and gender, growing 1% better every day and embracing darkness. We had the kind of conversation that could go on forever and I'm so thrilled to share her with you.  Find Tonjes: Find me: To support the podcast:

11. (Solo) Stay young looking and happy during the holidays--a collection of advice from my Lyft driving experience
A collection of advice centered around my coolest Lyft interactions! How a person I thought was 20 but was really 45 stays looking so young. The advice I gave to a young person considering law school. The surprisingly simple technique a woman actively searching for a sugar daddy uses to meet the "hottest rich guys" in Vegas. How I dealt with drunk people in my car. Plus, a pre-roll about how to deal with body negative family at holiday gatherings.  Support the podcast via my Patreon (a membership site that helps folks support the creators that impact them) Let's connect on Instagram! @bevinsparty Love you!

10. (Solo) Dispatches from the Gig Economy: My Life as a Lyft Driver, Air BNB Host, Rover Sitter, Facebook Marketplace Maven and More App Based Earning
Have you ever thought about renting a car and becoming a rideshare driver? I did it and I drop the nuts and bolts and dollars involved in rideshare driving, airbnb hosting, and pet sitting. I spent the past year deep in the Gig Economy--trading my time for money while still maintaining flexibility to pursue entrepreneurship. CA legislature passed AB 5 with hopes to make rideshare drivers treated like employees--what this legislation gets totally wrong is that any app using other people's time should not be making more than 25% of the cost of the service and rideshare apps take 70% or more of fares. Plus! I just moved to my tiny house in the forest and talk about getting here!  Thanks for your support of the podcast--join at any amount, every dollar matters!

7. (Solo) Grief! And My First Straight Bachelorette Party!
It's Halloween / Samhain and this is a great time of year to learn more about the grief process. Feeling our feelings as they happen and being a loving presence for our feelings is not supported in our society, but there's lots we can unlearn to make grieving easier on us. Also, this weekend I went to my first straight bachelorette party and talk all about being chased out of Napa by wildfires. Books to help you learn how to grieve: Teresa Caputo's "There's more to Life than This" and "Good Grief" and "Glad No Matter What" by SARK. Support this podcast via

4. (Solo) Spirituality
My spirituality is a huge part of my life and why I do what I do. I believe everyone should believe what they want to believe and follow their own arrow. Part of that is exploration, so I get down to what I've found on my path. What do I believe, who is God, why do some of my soulmates not know each other? What's Reiki? How did I find my path to spirituality? What spiritual thought leaders have helped me on my path. Tons of resources and places to start or continue your spiritual exploration.
