February 19, 2020

Get comfy and settle in with your favorite cup of tea, because Jessie Kendall-Bar is about to take you on a magical tour of the sea. If you’ve never been scuba diving or seen an enchanted kelp forest, allow Jessie to enlighten your senses with her storytelling, and teach you about some of the most fascinating species on this earth. One of the most multi-faceted young women I know, Jessie is a PhD student at UC Santa Cruz in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology department studying marine mammals. She’s also an underwater photographer, illustrator and overall passionate waterwoman, to name a few. She leverages her creativity and art to communicate scientific results, a refreshing way to learn an often complex topic. I hope you enjoy geeking out on marine mammals, biology and art as much as I did in this episode with Jessie!

Episode 51: Jordyn Romero: Unparalleled Millennial Inspiration

February 05, 2020

Jordyn Romero and I enjoy a salty surf in Venice before recording her episode, hence the ponchos and salty dog look. Jordyn is one of the most inspiring 22 year old women I’ve met. She recently finished her first documentary, Of The Sea, a female-driven surf film that follows a mother and her entrepreneurial efforts to raise awareness of the world’s plastic consumption. Jordyn is already onto her next film adventure in Sri Lanka with the organization Sea Sisters. Jordyn bravely opens up regarding the tragic death of her father a year ago, and how she has pushed through her grief with daily ocean therapy. She’s a brave and radiant light for anyone who has lost someone so dear to them, and also shares how international travel shaped her at a young age.

Episode 50: Surfing the "Bu", the Heartbreak of Miscarriage & Navigating Social Media As Adults

January 29, 2020

Carla Rowland Zamora and I have a candid chat near the iconic Malibu wall, a place where the emotional ties run deep. While the rest of us around the world grew up seeing the iconic surf photos of nose-riding in Malibu, Carla shares the reality of what it was really like to grow up in this intimate and competitive community. Carla is a teacher at heart, and discovered she has more joy teaching others to catch their first wave than winning trophies or competitions. We dive deep into personal women’s topics like miscarriage, the stressors of social media as adults, coming to terms with forgiveness, and more. You can meet Carla in living color for her upcoming longboarding workshop at Traveler Surf Club throughout the month of February!
