Homeless Shelters (0:00:00) When the weather gets cold, I barely want to leave my house for the time it takes to run to my car. It’s miserable. But can you imagine living every day without ever being able to run inside somewhere to keep you warm? Can you imagine wandering the streets with no food, no home, and no purpose? We pass people in these exact circumstances every day, not giving a second thought to what they actually might be going through. Well, we wanted an inside perspective and talked to one man who gave us first-hand details of what life is really like being homeless. We have Brent Crane, the director at a local homeless shelter, joining us to help us know the best things we can do to help our homeless neighbors. Care Packages (0:13:02) Being apart from family is hard all year round, but when someone you love can’t spend the holidays with you it’s especially hard. Whether your kid is at college or a military family member is deployed, sending care packages can be a great way to feel connected to a loved one even if they are far away. But if you’ve never sent a care package before it can be hard to know where to start! Joanna Guldin has sent plenty of packages to her military husband while he was deployed, and she shares all her best ideas on her blog JoMyGosh.com. She joins us to help us create the best care packages possible The Wedding Hashers (0:29:25) If you are planning to get married in New York, you might be lucky enough to have some surprise guests in your wedding pictures. The Wedding Hashers are a group of runners who run past the Brooklyn Bridge and take pictures with as many weddings and recently married couples as possible. But don’t worry about them ruining your wedding aesthetic! The runners wear custom made tuxedo running shirts, so they’ll fit right in! Marc Alterman and his fellow Wedding Hashers join us to share their experiences running into couples and taking pictures. True Crime (0:49:25) So many people are familiar with the ever-popular true crime podcasts. Among all those podcasts, one stands out for the depth of its research and storytelling: Cold by KSL Podcasts. This podcast has managed to stay in the top 100 shows on Apple Podcasts for almost a year now. Due to the intense research and “cold case” crime, this podcast is a must-listen. Today we are joined by the host and producer of Cold, Dave Cawley. Parenting and Diversity (1:07:01) We love to talk about parenting on our show, because we love parents! The work they do is difficult and complicated and not always appreciated as it should be. And while we are always trying to speak to the largest audience we can—we know it’s impossible to speak to everyone. The parenting experience is different for everyone, because every child and family situation is different. Here to talk to us about her own unique perspective on parenting is Dr. Bethany Cook, clinical psychologist specializing in children and families and author of For What It’s Worth: A Perspective on How to Thrive and Survive Parenting Ages 0-2.  Negotiating Salary (1:21:28) You’ve been working hard at your job, maybe you’ve even been working there for a while and so you feel it’s time for a raise... but how do you even begin that conversation with your boss? It takes guts, vulnerability, and maybe some skills we don’t know about to beef up that paycheck, so we’ve invited Josh Doody, a salary negotiation coach and leading expert in job interview strategy, to teach us how to understand our value and get paid for our worth.
