Kelly Westfall is my mom. She has never done a podcast before and she does not have a website, an online course, or anything to promote. It was her birthday and I thought it would be fun to have her on the podcast to talk about life. If you want to learn more about her struggle with addiction and how it affected our relationship, read this letter I wrote her in 2015.
A few quick things:
If you have issues with drinking, check out AA and go to a meeting. I've been to a few, and they're always supportive, encouraging, and fun. It might be the best thing you ever do for yourself. I mean that.
If you're worried about someone with a drinking problem, I encourage you to check out Al-Anon, which is a kind of support group for those affected by loved ones dealing with alcoholism.
If you need a good book, check out this auto-biography of the dude who founded AA. I read it years ago. It's good. And here is the Big Book my mom referenced in the episode.

Everyone deserves to be seen, valued, and heard in their fullest expression and Jessie Nelson is a badass advocate for exactly that, promoting equality and diversity in communities and businesses throughout the world. Identifying as gender fluid, Jessie has devoted their life to starting important conversations that create safe spaces for all people to come as they are.
In this wide-ranging discussion, we talk about what it feels like to come out of the closet, why pronouns matter, what 'being an ally' means, how society and culture influence gender roles, and a whole lot more. This was a fascinating and fun discussion and I learned a lot from Jessie. I am sure you will, too.

Janne Robinson is a good friend of mine who routinely inspires me with her words, her work, her heart, and her gentle ferocity. She is a poet, she is a speaker, and she is a force for good in this mad, mad world.

Well, folks, this is definitely one of the two best episodes I have ever recorded on the podcast. The guest, Kelsey Grant (@radicalselflove), is a relationship expert who helps people love better, and she does NOT hold back in this one. She spits fire and powerful truth about familial systems, boundaries, breakups, love, dating, and all kinds of other good stuff.
We touch on SO MANY different topics related to relationships and there are SO MANY nuggets of wisdom in here. Plus, we laugh a whole lot. You're going to love this one.
Also, some of the resources mentioned include the book Codependent No More, which I think is one of the most powerful personal development books out there, as well Alain de Botton's incredible talk at the Sydney Opera House called "On Love", which is hilarious and thought-provoking and well worth a listen.
This is the very first episode of the Long Distance Love Bombs podcast, so why not just dive into one of the deepest, most uncomfortable topics possible?
In this episode, Mark and I dive into sexual assault, male privilege, the #MeToo movement, masculinity, and a whole bunch of other good stuff.
Many women have lovingly called us forward on social media, and this discussion is us answering that call. This is us stepping well outside our comfort zone in an effort to support, learn, grow, and contribute our voices. Our intention is to honor the brave folks speaking up.
We are not experts in this topic. We don't have all the answers. But we're willing to risk saying the wrong thing here in order to learn what the right thing is.
These guys are mentioned and are doing great work: @newagegents, @mantalks, and @beyondthebeers.
