Woman Up! S1 Ep 16 - Meg Kissack
Season 1, Ep. 16
My guest this week is Meg Kissack. Meg is the host of The Daily Pep! and The Couragemakers Podcast, and founder of The Rebel Rousers. She is a coach, writer and all-round rebel-rouser for fiercely creative, wildly multi-passionate & fabulously weird women She helps them show up in the world as their most courageous and authentic selves, do the epic shit only they can do and make/leave the world a brighter place. When she's not recording episodes, writing weekly BS-free Letters of Rebellion to her wonderful Rebel Rousers community or hosting workshops/group programmes, she can be found playing with colour, having adventures with Mr Meg and her wonderfully weird cockapoo Merlin and dreaming and scheming new ways to help people believe they matter.
Woman Up! S1 Ep 15 - Emine Dilek
Season 1, Ep. 15
In this, the final episode of 2022, I am in conversation with Emine Dilek. Emine is originally from Turkey, but has lived, loved, worked, and raised her son, in the US for more than two decades. Emine is a Feminist, and Activist, an Artist, a wife, a mother, a businessperson, and a wonderful, warm, human being. I am blessed and honoured to call her a friend. In this episode of Woman Up, Emine talks to me about Art, and the Art of Manifesting. What better way to start 2023 than thinking about what you want to bring forth into your life in the new year?
Woman Up! S1 Ep 14 - Bridget Supple
Season 1, Ep. 14
This week, I'm joined by Bridget Supple, who is a National Childbirth Trust educator, doula, and author. Her book 'The Birthkeeper of Bethlehem' concerns itself with Bridget's imagining of Jesus's midwife. As Bridget tells it, she was out walking her dogs one day when the character of a woman came - fully-formed - into her mind, and introduced herself as 'Salomé - Jesus's midwife'. Imagine Bridget's surprise when, months after she'd published her book, an excavation that took place just west of Jerusalem discovered the tomb of the woman who is thought to have assisted at the birth of Jesus Christ. Her name? Salomé. You can read more here. https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2022/dec/20/excavations-reveal-pilgrims-lamps-and-inscriptions-at-tomb-of-salome-jesus-christ'The Birthkeeper of Bethlehem' also contains the most sensitive (and sensible) lay-person's explanation of Dementia I have ever come across.
