82: Three Podcasters Share Experiences in the Not So Empty Nest Series Number 9 Featuring Carolyn Kiel and Elaine Best

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!

In today’s episode in our Not So Empty Nest series, I share a conversation I had with two of my closest podcasting friends, Elaine Best of Angus Eye Tea and Carolyn Kiel of Beyond 6 Seconds. 

This episode is a different topic than usual for me, but I thought you might want a glimpse into some of the behind-the-scenes of the podcasting side of my life.

I hope your family is safe and healthy!

51: Podcaster I Am Thankful For (Carolyn Kiel’s interview with Nikhil Pampati of Jobscopia) Career Search

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!
 
As it is Thanksgiving week here in the United States, and since this is a podcast episode, I thought it would be appropriate to share a podcaster I am thankful for.
 
Please note that, of course, I am incredibly thankful for my patient and supportive husband, my incredibly creative and kind-hearted daughter, my friends and extended family, my health, and all that comes with the privilege of being alive on this earth at this moment. 
 
Oh, and pumpkin pie – thankful for pumpkin pie! I WILL treat myself with some pumpkin pie. 
 
While this episode is a bit longer than my usual episode, it is an incredibly interesting listen. Carolyn was kind enough to share one of her episodes with me that I handpicked for you. Nikhil Pampati is a high school senior who has created a nonprofit that is incredibly needed and inspiring. I invite you to listen to this episode, maybe even take a listen in the car with your child(ren) and have some exciting discussions about it.
