Ooooh, what amazing ladies were on the show today!
First, I welcome three of the Mid-Hudson Misfits Roller Derby team, Farrell Brenner aka Eleanor Bruisevelt, Laura Palermo aka Madame Manatease, and Samantha Willenbucher, still perfecting her roller derby name. We talk about the nuts and bolts of roller derby, why they started skating, how to become a misfit, how it's changed their lives, and some pretty amazing roller derby metaphors for life in general plus a little about who they are when they're not skating. They have upcoming local bouts at Skate Time 209 on September 7th and October 5th and one in Troy on November 23rd. A portion of the proceeds supports local charities...plus you can join the skating party after the bout with special guest DJ's!
In the second half of today's show, I have the pleasure of speaking with Sarah Urech, Acting Director of the Omega Women's Leadership Center about their upcoming Women & Power Conference: Gathering Our Strength coming up at the end of this month, September 27-29th at the beautiful Omega campus in Rhinebeck, NY. This year the conference features speakers Elizabeth Lesser, Tarana Burke, Roxane Gay and many more. It's not too late to join or to tune in to the year-round happenings and online sessions from the OWLC. Sarah shares personally about how she got the the Hudson Valley via her performance work at the Hudson River Playback Theatre and how that led to her work at Omega. We also get to talk about how to #DoPowerDifferently and how Sarah's work in Playback Theater has helped her to become a better listener. Watch Sarah speak about the practice of listening as an important step in human evolution.
Plus self care thoughts and practices from all of today's guests! Until next week, love yourself and uplift one another!
