63 – Flight & Scarlet w. Sareeta Lopez

Substitute teacher by day, blogger by night Sareeta Lopez joins us to talk about her work: Flight & Scarlet.

We discuss how she began writing for herself, then others, regarding feminism, financial management, trying to balance personal/professional well-being, and other general ‘how to adult’ topics. We figure out what the best life-hacks are and whether or not a life-hack is really just something we should’ve learned in school. Sareeta also survives the very first Lightning Round of random questions I had about goal-setting & organizational methods, so kudos for her.

CW: Sexual Assault

27 – Poetry & Vulnerability w. Cristina Filomena

Poet, actress, singer, person, Cristina Filomena is here to talk about her recently published book of poems: Lost. A Collection of Poetry and Prose.

We cover the whole journey of how one goes from having their break-up poems in their journal, to having a book of your work published and sold to people for money. We discuss the vulnerability inherent in creativity, poetry, and in online criticism. Cristina also gifts us with a reading of one of her poems!

So make sure to get the book however you can, check out Cristina’s Instagram, and keep an eye out for her music.

PS: we forgot to mention that Cristina has a music gig coming up at Blackbird Cafe April 26th 6:30pm as part of her duo: One Fell Swoop.
