#RADIO – The First Presidential Debate Revealed

October 22, 2012
Did you hear the first presidential debate? I listened and it was a shocker. Somehow in a 90-minute conversation about our national economy, we managed to avoid talking about women and families. The utter failure to touch on key policies that significantly impact our national economy and that matter so much to the majority of our electorate points to a fundamental misunderstanding of the value of women and families in our economy, in our culture, and in our nation. *LISTEN TO THE SHOW HERE: This omission is about way more than...

October 20, 2012
As the November 6 election draws near, candidates across the country are talking about the issues that they think will get them the very most votes -- but are they missing out? Are they ignoring important topics? *LISTEN TO THE SHOW HERE: Let’s face it, women comprise more than half the electorate but all too often the top priority issues of women are absolutely, positively missing from the center stage. A recent YWCA poll found that nearly 70 percent of women are concerned about unaffordable medical expenses for themselves or...

#RADIO – Junk Food, School Lunches, Better Food, and You

September 17, 2012
Let’s talk about junk food. As cities around the country spark controversy by proposing trans-fat bans, as well as bans on large size sugary drinks, more and more people are talking about junk food, particularly how to tackle it. And this is a great time to have the conversation because kids are just starting to head back to school. Let’s face it. We have a problem in our nation. Nearly 23 million school-age children are overweight or obese, making them more likely to suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, and more. However, hope is on the horizon. School lunches are...

Taking Back The Word “Mom” -- And The Phrase "Mom-in-Chief"

September 15, 2012
On this show, we’re talking about taking back the word “mom” in an empowered way. In the wake of the love fest for the word “mom” at both the Democratic National Convention and Republican National Convention, it’s time for us to get real about what the word “mom” really means in our nation. Because after the balloons drop and the politicians stop courting our votes, we’re going to be left with the moniker. Here’s the deal: For far too long, the word “mom” has been used to disempower and discriminate against women. This hurts more than our feelings; this hurts our pocket books. One study found...

When Women Wake, Mountains Move

September 11, 2012
I was driving home from school drop off this am, listening to J Lo sing about wanting to dance again and it hit me. An idea so powerful that it sent chills from the top of my head all the way down to my feet. I saw the divine Goddess gathering all the archetypes, the spirits, the energies, the ancient seers, healers, so-called witches and Goddesses together in a circle. A reunion of the feminine soul throughout history and around the world. Every incarnation of her joined together, holding hands and raising the vibration of the earth and every creature on the planet in love and healing. It...

#RADIO – Race To the Presidency

August 23, 2012
The race to the Presidency. With the November election fast approaching, things are really heating up! At the center of this massive political heat wave is, believe it or not, a federal budget proposal. This budget proposal has been called the “Path to Prosperity” by those who wrote it. But on the other hand, it’s also been called the “Reverse Robin Hood” budget, and it’s even been called the “blueprint for dismantling the American middle class.” So why is this budget at the center for the race to the presidency? Because of what it tells us about where the candidates really stand on policies...

#RADIO - Olympics Fever! Women, Girls, & Sports

August 15, 2012
The Olympics! The torch. The pageantry. The athletic accomplishments that are unimaginable to us mere mortals. This is a historic Olympics for women: The U.S. team included more female athletes than male for the first time ever. We've come a long way since Title Nine passed 40 years ago, now more than 200,000 women play college sports, compared with 16,000 in 1972. But we still have a ways to go. By age fourteen, girls are dropping out of sports at twice the rate of boys. And as women's sports have gained prestige, fewer female coaches are hired. In fact, of the five sports where the U.S. is...
