Everyday Rockstar (0:00:00) Lisa and Richie talk with this week’s featured Everyday Rockstar. You can nominate yourself or someone you know for going above and beyond by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Women’s Equality Day (0:06:51) Happy Women’s Equality Day! Women’s Equality Day celebrates the adoption of the 19thAmendment into the US Constitution, giving women the legal right to vote in our country. But what is the story behind the pain, struggle, and protesting that led to its eventual adoption? Joining us today is Neylan McBaine, woman’s suffrage expert and author of “Pioneering the Vote”, her latest book detailing the story of lesser-known suffragists in Utah and in the West. She’s here to discuss her new book and the importance of the history of women’s suffrage. Recovering From Infidelity (0:21:58) Approximately 1 in 5 married couples struggle with extramarital affairs. Infidelity can destroy families and cause immense heartache. Recovery may seem impossible. Whether you’re trying to fix the marriage or decide to recover on your own and separate, healing is important. But it can be hard to know where to start. To help us navigate this issue, we’ve invited Dr. Janis Abrahms Spring, a clinical psychologist of 43 years and author of “After the Affair: Healing the Pain and Rebuilding Trust When a Partner Has Been Unfaithful.” Caregiver Burnout (0:32:51) When I think of a caregiver, I usually think of a parent responsible for a young child. However, caregivers really are anyone who provides, well, “care” for another individual. By definition, this often requires giving up a portion of your time and energy to ensure another’s wellbeing—sometimes even to the exclusion of the caregivers own wellbeing. However, your needs as a caregiver are important as well. Here to discuss what these needs are, how to meet them, and how to avoid caregiver burnout is MSW, LSM, and best-selling author Edie Moser. The Last Blockbuster on Earth (0:59:37) I love being able to rent movies online. Especially now—it’s great to have that easy access. But I do get nostalgic for the days of video rentals. There was something magical about taking a trip to a Blockbuster, checking out the new releases, re-watching classics, and grabbing snacks. Unfortunately, you can no longer find a Blockbuster on every corner, but there is one corner—the last corner in the world—where you can relive those golden days. The last Blockbuster on earth is still operating out of Bend, Oregon! Here to tell us how they’ve been able to stick it out for so long is store manager, Sandi Harding. Back to School Advice from a Teacher (1:14:31) School is right around the corner, which means the nerves our kids have been feeling about the new school year are becoming more and more real. It’s important our kids start their classes off on the right foot. So, we thought we’d get a teacher’s perspective on what students can do to succeed this year. Joining us today is veteran teacher Elizabeth Brockbank Hoffman. We’re excited to get some advice from her as fall approaches. Side Hustles (1:29:10) I love the innovation and creativity we’ve seen as a result of the difficulties of this year. And what has been really inspiring is seeing how people turn their creativity and hobbies into side hustles to lessen the blow of the economic downturn. Sometimes, however, we need a little advice on how to turn our banana bread making, or whatever hobby into an actual business. So today, we are getting advice from Alison from The Alison Show and the Awesome with Alison podcast on how to make your side hustle a booming success.
