This podcast is a very special reconnect as the 8 years that have passed yet again, have allowed Ryan and Mandy time to give space to their new romantic partners as well as marinate in the lessons learned from their past journey together and open up deeply and honestly on this podcast about it all.  Topics covered include lessons they learned from, each other and how they flipped the difficulties in their romantic and professional relationship with each other around into positive life lessons that neither of them would trade anything for. They both have a chance to look back at the lessons learned about sustainable communities, and reflect on where the movement is going and evolving as well as mutually notice some energy in both of them as well as others in our lives, towards bringing back some momentum towards wanting to rekindle some aspects of the Within Reach project back into the world. More to come on that as the 10 year anniversary of Within Reach approaches in 2022. Other topics include her relationship with some challenging family members, food challenges, her womb and infertility,  as well as how her life mission now is basically to flip the flip.
