Tami Amanda has devoted her life to studying the brain, the nervous system, and why we develop in the ways we do. Tami's own journey of recovery from sexual trauma and an eating disorder has greatly shaped who she is as a coach, therapist, and human. She found healing by finding what helped her feel the most alive and through living in collaboration with her inner child. She now supports women in creating internal safety to be able to heal from trauma and toxic shame.
Tami is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Mind-Body Coach who specializes in treating trauma-related issues, anxiety, depression, behavioral struggles, body image struggles, social conflict, stress management, and life transitions. When she began practicing clinically, she exclusively focused on children and families who experienced trauma. She co-developed a mental health program in the St. Louis Public School District to teach schools how to be more trauma-informed and to support traumatized immigrant and refugee children in healing their nervous systems. Tami believes strongly that there is healing available to all of us. She believes in the power of activating people's innate capacity to self-heal and empowering people to know that they can. She also wants to express deep gratitude to her teachers Courtney McNabb, Devin Jones, Bessel Van Der Kolk and Daniel Siegel.

Dr. Jody Carrington is a Clinical Psychologist who has spent most of her career working with children and families who have experienced trauma. For ten years, she worked on the Mental Health Inpatient Units of the Alberta Children’s Hospital, where she became a believer in the power of the relationship in assisting children and their families struggling with emotional dysregulation. She has developed a particular passion for working with teachers and school staff, who often spend more time with them, during the day, than their primary caregivers. She is an author and speaker.
Over the past 15 years, Dr. Carrington has assessed, treated, educated, and empowered some of our most vulnerable and precious souls on the planet. She is a child psychologist by trade, but Jody rarely treats kids. The answer lies, she believes, in the people who hold them. Especially when kids have experienced trauma, that’s when they need big people the most. Some of her favorites include educators, parents, first responders, and foster parents. Jody has shifted the way they think and feel about the holy work that they do.
Jody received her Bachelor of Arts with Distinction from the University of Alberta, she completed a year-long internship with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police during that time and worked alongside families struggling with chronic illness at the Ronald McDonald House. She received her Master’s degree in Psychology at the University of Regina and completed her Ph.D. there as well, before completing her residency in Nova Scotia.
Her first book, Kids These Days: A Game Plan for (Re)Connecting with those we Teach, Lead & Love, came out in 2019 and sold 20,000 copies in just three months.

Beau Miles makes videos of his adventures doing things the rest of us wouldn’t, like when he attempted to paddle around from one side of Africa to the other; when he ran over 650 km of the Australian Alpine Walking Track; and when he walked 90 km to get to work. "He is a filmmaker who spent his childhood looking for golf balls, secretly hoping to find a body part in the swamps and marshes. He still looks in odd places for much the same thing (and feeling). Being a redhead means that sunscreen, big hats, and old business shirts cloak him during outdoor life. He likes baths more than showers, homemade wine, and licorice. By god he likes licorice."
He previously worked as an outdoor education lecturer at Melbourne's Monash University, and he has a book coming out this year about finding adventure in the everyday.

Nahko is a singer, songwriter, and musician who blends socially conscious folk and rock with soulful, alt-R&B, genre-bending production. In a career built on reflective, deeply personal songwriting, Nahko’s new album, ‘Take Your Power Back,’ grapples with grief, trauma, reconciliation, and learning to face heartache head-on by embracing the peace and serenity that comes with understanding and acceptance. It’s an album of growth, courage, and resilience, a testament to the beauty and evolution that can come from fully inhabiting our pain. It’s also proof that our true power —spiritual, physical, and emotional — inevitably comes from within.
Born to a Puerto Rican/Native American mother and a Filipino father, Nahko was adopted by a white, conservative, Christian family in Oregon and raised under the name David Bell. He later learned that his birth was the result of a rape, that his biological mother had been fourteen and sold into sex work at the time he was conceived, and that his biological father was murdered. A sixth-generation Apache, he took on the moniker of Nahko — a play on his middle name, Nahkohe-ese, which translates to Little Bear — as a way of reclaiming his roots, and in his late teens and twenties began traveling the country, spending time in Hawaii and Alaska as he wrestled with identity, purpose, and perception.
Backed by his band, Medicine For The People, Nahko released his debut album, ‘On The Verge,’ in 2011, but his breakthrough came two years later with ‘Dark As Night', a critical and commercial breakout landing in the Top Ten on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and earning festival slots at Outside Lands, Electric Forest, Wanderlust, Bumbershoot, and more. Over the next four years, he would release two more albums with his band, solidifying his reputation as an outspoken activist and advocate for social and environmental justice.
A few of my favorite songs of his are this one, and this one, and this one, and this one. Also, here is the song, San Quentin, inspired by the visit to the jail that he referenced near the end of the conversation.
Here are links to check out Nahko and his music:

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 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.

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?

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. RESOURCES: These guys are mentioned and are doing great work: @newagegents, @mantalks, and @beyondthebeers. If you like this episode, please do share it and subscribe!
