Ep. 16

In today’s episode we’re joined by the illuminating Charleston Based Marriage and Family Therapist, Lair Torrent, LMFT about The Practice of Love, marriage counseling , holistic therapy & eastern medicine, and how trauma affects our relationships. Lair truly wows Laura and Todd with his insight on Trans-generational trauma, mindfulness and breaking the cycle, triangulation, and what happens when marriage counseling doesn’t work. The three also share quite a few laughs, and ponder the challenges of a thrupple and what they believe they were in their past lives. We think everyone, whether married, divorced, single or in between will benefit from this enthralling conversation with Lair and we can’t wait to have him (and maybe even his therapist/medium wife!) back on the show!

In this episode, we talk about her unique career path, Samantha’s special niche as a dancer, and mental health in theatre. Most importantly, we talk about Samantha’s experiences as an ER nurse during the pandemic, her feelings on the way the pandemic was handled in the US, and how Los Angeles as a city prepared and dealt with Covid-19. We also discuss the struggles of working with difficult families, people refusing to wear a mask (or even accept they had Covid), and how front line workers went from being lauded as heroes to being treated sub-human post-pandemic. We get in to the psychological trauma COVID-19 caused (one of Laura's favorite topics!), Samantha’s personal experience with therapy, and how being a voice-over artist is a great escape from the stresses of Nursing. Finally, Samantha shares how she feels about fulfilling her purpose in life before we all answer the question of the day!

Sara King – Award Winning Broadway Performer

Season 1, Ep. 18
In today’s episode we sit down with the lovely Ovation Award Winning Broadway Performer Sara King, who is a fierce survivor of trauma in many forms. We talk about what it was like to play Cynthia Weil on Broadway’s Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Carole seeing the show in full disguise. Outside of her performance career, we learn the heartbreaking story of Sara losing her beloved father to a pulmonary embolism when she was young, her and her siblings watching how her mom navigated the experience and then discovering her mother had a vicious form of cancer, that took her life far too quickly. Following the loss of her parents, many more members of her family began to pass away and the group discusses the effects of compounded grief and how it changes you, for better and worse. Laura and Sara bond over their shared experience of losing so many loved ones, as well as divorce and how it all can build resilience and fortitude, but also give you have a deeper appreciation for life. While the three of them get into some very heavy topics, everyone comes away with a deeper understanding of how hardship can ultimately help you stop and smell the roses! We had such a wonderful time talking to Sara and we know so many people will benefit from hearing her story.
