Is Your Home Stressing You Out? (0:00:00) Whenever feelings of anxiety or pressure come up, it’s good to have a safe place to go where you can get away from those negative emotions. But what if that place of stress is your own home? Whether we know it or not, it turns out there are a lot of things we might be doing in our homes that are giving us unneeded stress. So, what are these hidden stressors that are hiding in plain sight? Today we’re joined by Dr. Carla Manly, a clinical psychologist and author, here with us to talk about how to destress your home. Maximalism (0:19:26) Marie Kondo has been the reigning queen of all things interior design for years. Out with the old, and out with the new even –minimalism decrees that less is more and almost nothing is everything. However, minimalism might soon lose its pedestalled place to its polar opposite—maximalism, which embodies the idea that more is always more. Here to discuss all things maximalism, how to do it right, and why you need more of it in your life is designer Jessica McCarthy of JAM Creative. School Preparation during COVID-19 (0:36:45) Friend of the show Carrie Ann Rhodes talks with Lisa and Richie about what we should be doing to prepare our kids for a school year that is impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Communicating with Cats (0:52:46) We want to believe our pets love us just as much as we love them. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know for sure—since there’s a pretty obvious language barrier between us and our favorite furry friends. But sometimes it seems like—especially with cats—they’re trying to communicate with us in their own way. From purring, to rubbing up against our leg, to bringing us dead animals... are they trying to tell us something? And how can we know what they’re trying to say? Here to share her advice with us on how we can communicate with our cats is BasePaws founder and CEO Anna Skaya. Jane Austen Was Here (1:08:52) Whether it’s the dashing Mr. Darcy, the wit and humor, or the Regency era manners and fashion that draw you into Jane Austen novels and movies, we know you love Jane. Imagine having the experience of a lifetime, visiting all of Jane Austen’s spots in England. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? Well, three Jane Austen lovers had just that experience and created a book called “Jane Was Here” so you can have that experience too. Two of these women, Lexi Nilson and Nicole Jacobsen, join us today to tell us more about this experience! Carnival Foods at Home (1:27:50) Now the best part, arguably, of summer carnivals is the food! Sadly, the likelihood of us enjoying a Ferris wheel ride and an 890 calorie snack of fried Oreos is low this year. But just because we can't buy our fav fried food at the fairgrounds doesn't mean we can't still enjoy it. Here to tell us all we need to know about making our own carnival foods at home is Christi Erpillo, member of the Fernie’s Funnel Cake legacy in Texas.
