Finance Podcast Episodes

At least once a week I have absolutely brilliant conversations in collaboration on podcast episodes. Al and I just recorded another episode today, right after another episode aired yesterday.

It is so damn fun to listen to episodes once they air. I just show up and talk, in genuine conversation with podcast partners. I believe it comes through that these are all very real and authentic conversations.

This collaborative partnership showed up very unexpectedly almost a year ago and from the beginning, I had no expectations or attachment to outcomes. Which I think strengthens the bond that we have with one another.

Check out some of our recent conversations at: Confessions of a Financial Advisor Podcast

Al and I can talk with each other for hours at a time and these episodes are a glimpse into conversations we’ve been having for as long as we’ve been collaborating. In our off-air chat today we both noted that it feels as though we’ve known each other much longer than a year.

It was around this time last year that some unexpected endings in my life brought about conversations with men everywhere I go. I joked that last spring was the season of my meeting married men; that trend has only grown stronger in the past year.

When Al and I first met in person, he laughed when I shared my background of psychology. Put two psych majors together in conversation and watch the sparks fly; we go deep and go deep fast.

Especially now, I very much value our conversations and connection. We certainly touch on finance, but we also very much dig into the psychology and emotional aspects to behavior.

These podcast episodes are a window into the conversations we’ve been having since the very beginning. Our off-air talks include more cursing than our on-air ones do and they’re always healing for both of us. I so appreciate this connection and the value it brings to my life.

About a year ago, some previous relationships ended quite unexpectedly. At the time I couldn’t see it, but those endings opened floodgates of doors to new connections and relationships in all areas of my life. For that, I am immensely grateful.

Overcoming Fear

It is beyond ironic that a podcast episode I was part of recording a while ago just aired…given the current state of the world. The latest Confessions of a Financial Advisor podcast episode is all about overcoming fear. And fear is something every single person experiences in some form or another.

The world is currently in a state of massive fear and chaos. Check out the podcast episode linked above to listen in on my conversation with Al about the reality of fear.

It’s also the first time I’ve shared my personal story of the first man I went on a date with after my divorce. It’s been more than two years and that story still makes me laugh. Needless to say, he and I are no longer connected.

Right now, we are all navigating through some ridiculously messy emotions, including grief. The world has been traumatized by recent events, and those of us who are highly sensitive are holding not just personal but collective grief and fearful emotions.

In another “no such thing as coincidence” moment, my other podcast partner and I just recorded the next Disrupt Now Program podcast episode centered on the word: Surrender.

I’ve listened to that upcoming episode’s raw version and it is so fucking good! As are most of the episodes that I’m a part of with podcast partners. I just show up and talk, so every episode that I’m a collaborator on are truly a reflection of the genuine conversations I have in my daily life.

If you ever wonder what it’s like to talk with me, just listen to any of the episodes I’ve shared. They are all a reflection of what it’s like to engage in conversation with me. By far, the most common thing people say to me is, “It’s just really easy to talk with and be around you.” Followed closely by, “I’m not sure why I’m telling you this, it’s really personal.”

Both FA Confessions and the Disrupt Now Program podcasts have become huge passion projects of mine within the past year. I absolutely love collaborating on both of them. It’s hard to believe that a year ago neither one had shown up yet, they both just feel intimately familiar.
