It's showtime. I'm wickedly nervous as I prepare to deliver my monologue in my very first acting class. I've been rehearsing relentlessly and memorizing my script so that I don't forget any of my character's dialogue. I begin. And not two minutes into it, my teacher Peter stops me.  What he says next changes me--not just as an actor, but as a speaker, storyteller, and communicator. He tells me, “Kymberlee, I want you to live in the line you are in. Don't worry about what's going to happen. Good acting is when you risk losing the next line.” Whoa. What if we all lived in the line we're in during conversations with loved ones at home or associates in everyday life? As a voiceover artist and actress, my special guest this week, Kate Marley, does this in spades. And in this episode, she's here to talk all about it and answer questions like: What can anyone bring into a story character to give it life? How powerfully do shared stories affect you emotionally, both inside and outside of a community? What you will learn in this episode: Why purpose is such an essential storytelling element How story and art help you reconnect to your authentic self How shared stories shift previously-stuck perspectives and help others Who is Kate?

Since graduating, Melanie has worked steadily in acting, audiobook recording, and writing about a Paleo diet and lifestyle at Paleoactress.com. She has also starred in several films and television productions, narrated several audiobooks, and written the bestseller The What When Wine Diet. Being an "old soul," Melanie is renowned for her vivacious, optimistic, upbeat, and enchanting attitude. "Live vicariously through yourself!" is her credo.  She holds certifications from the WSET as a wine specialist, the AFPA as a holistic nutritionist, and Mensa International as a member.

What and how much we eat affects our entire constitution and overall health. The more you learn, the more you want to share what you've learned to help others. Melanie started trying the Paleo diet after she read Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet. [11:05] Getting Heavy Metal Poisoning from Fish People don't realize and tend to underestimate how much mercury there is in the fish you eat. Melanie thinks that swordfish should be made illegal to be sold in restaurants due to the amount of mercury you can contract from it. Eat fish in moderation to avoid heavy metal poisoning. You can get mercury poisoning not only from fish but from silver tooth fillings as well. Symptoms of this poisoning include fatigue, anemia, memory loss, anxiety, hot flashes, and insomnia. [25:25] What Happens When Toxins Get into the Body? Our bodies can detoxify on their own; however, we are not accustomed to the overwhelming toxic burden that we have nowadays. Every day toxins such as heavy metals in the food we eat, pesticides, skincare products, and makeup aren't regulated, which is why we consume more than we should. An abundance of certain compounds in makeup can cause you to gain weight and make it hard to lose it. Not to mention carcinogens. The solution to pollution is dilution. There are also studies about obesogens that states that they may affect insulin levels as well. [39:05] The Most Common Themes in Interviews Most people are all about bio-individuality: different diets and things work for different people. Most of them seem to be focused on fasting as well, which is quite popular at the moment.  Blood sugar control is a common theme since many people have a lot of trouble dealing with it. There is no cookie-cutter approach to anything. Different strokes work for different folks. A specific diet can't work for literally everyone. It's not as simple as eating less food and moving your body, and you immediately get results. Outcomes depend on every person. AND MUCH MORE!

This episode sees Ethel returning from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, believing the mandates are over. Little does she know the SAG-AFTRA board - Fran Drescher, Duncan Crabtree-Ireland et al - informed by uninformed medical doctors have extended the mandates til the end of January 2023. So absolutely unfair, ridiculous and ignorant!!Main part of this episode is the beginning of the audiobook for Transforming Trauma, a drugless and creative path to healing PTS and ACE. O am so thrilled this all came together and I thank everyone who added a quote. I am so grateful to my husband Avi for all he did to bring it to where it got to and to Georgina Bentliff, publisher of Hammersmith Books in the UK. I also thank Sophie and Katie at Read Media for all they have been doing to get me on radio shows.The book is published in the UK and distributed by Chelsea Green in North America. It was supposed to be available a couple of weeks ago but the supply chain with the cost of fuel rising is real and has affected the book's arrival in North America. It is now scheduled for November 8. As for November 8th, I hope you will vote for candidates who believe in medical freedom. Ask your candidates...this issue must be ur most important issue so we have not only sovereignty over what goes into our bodies but that we choose what medical system we adhere to for instance respecting the adage vis medicatrix naturae, the healing power of nature.Rick Caruso is the one who can turn LA around. I met him here at Horace Heidt Estate apartments and he is the real deal, no matter how rich he is.

World Building for Masochists

We throw the word "aesthetic" around a lot on this podcast -- but we've never really slowed down to talk about what it means. How do we define the aesthetic of a work? Is that different from the aesthetic of a world? How do subgenres and plot structures intertwine with those ideas? Guest Mary Robinette Kowal joins us to explore the crafting of aesthetics in worldbuilding and storymaking! We discuss pacing, word choice, set dressing, the theatre of the mind, the "breath" of the written word, and so much more. We also examine how aesthetic can be a shorthand to help your reader with an on-ramp into your story -- but how you may also need to teach your reader where your particular world deviates from what aesthetic may lead them to assume. Transcript for Episode 88 (in-progress -- email us if you're interested in joining the scribal team!) Our Guest: Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author, Mary Robinette Kowal is a novelist and professional puppeteer. In 2008 she won the Astounding Award for Best New Writer and her debut novel Shades of Milk and Honey (Tor 2010) was nominated for the 2010 Nebula Award for Best Novel. In 2019, the first book in the Lady Astronaut series The Calculating Stars (Tor 2018), won the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards, becoming one of only eighteen novels to do so. Her stories have appeared in Strange Horizons, Asimov's, and several Year's Best anthologies, as well as in her collection Scenting the Dark and Other Stories from Subterranean Press. Her short story collection Word Puppets was published in 2015, and includes both of her Hugo Award-winning stories in addition to fifteen others, running the full range of speculative fiction. In 2016, her World War I fantasy novel Ghost Talkers was published by Tor books, followed in 2018 by her alternate history Lady Astronaut series. From 2019-2021, Kowal was the President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. In 2011, after several appearances as a guest star on the podcast Writing Excuses, Kowal became a permanent member of the cast. In 2013, the seventh season of the podcast won the Hugo Award for Best Related Work. Her involvement in the podcast also contributed to the creation of the Shadows Beneath anthology, in which Kowal and her three co-hosts contributed short stories alongside materials charting the unique creative process of each author. Kowal is also an award-winning puppeteer. In high school, she took up puppetry as a hobby, but as Kowal says, she “never thought of it as something you could get paid for.” Instead, she went to East Carolina University to pursue an art degree, minoring in theater and speech. While performing as Audrey II in a performance of Little Shop of Horrors, she learned that a professional puppeteer had come to the show. It was a turning point. Kowal went on to intern at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA. With over twenty years of experience, she has performed for LazyTown (CBS), the Center for Puppetry Arts, Jim Henson Pictures, Sesame Street, and founded Other Hand Productions. Her designs have garnered two UNIMA-USA Citations of Excellence, the highest award an American puppeteer can achieve. Her career in puppetry consumed much of Kowal's creative energy for over ten years. Although she wrote in high school and college, it wasn't until her brother moved his family to China that she began writing again. Like Lewis Carroll and J.M. Barrie, she started creating children's fantasy as a way to stay connected to her young niece and nephew. Reminded of how much she enjoyed writing, she began submitting short stories and made her first sale in 2005, and her first professional sale to Strange Horizons in 2006. When she isn't writing or puppeteering, Kowal brings her speech and theater background to her work as a voice actor. She is a member of SAG/AFTRA. She has recorded audio books and short stories for authors such as Seanan McGuire, Cory Doctorow and John Scalzi. She likes to describe voice acting as “puppetry, without the pain.” Mary Robinette lives in Nashville with her husband Rob and over a dozen manual typewriters. Sometimes she even writes on them.

Welcome to The Smart Human Podcast, today I have the pleasure of chatting with actor Fran Drescher! Yes, you may know her as the star of the TV show The Nanny, but she's also an author, an activist and an educator. Today we're talking about her work in health education, her history as a cancer survivor, her plans as new president of The Screen Actors Guild and much much more. Fran Drescher was elected president of SAG-AFTRA in September 2021.   A 20-year cancer survivor, Drescher has a reputation for passion and commitment. She is Founder and Visionary of the Cancer Schmancer Movement; dedicated to educating, motivating, and activating patients into medical consumers by connecting lifestyle to disease with her Master Class Health Summit and teen-targeted education video, Be The Change, starring Jamie Foxx. Fran received two Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations for her portrayal as the lovable “Miss Fine'' on CBS's hit series, The Nanny, which she both created and executive produced. She also created, executive produced and starred in the groundbreaking TV Land sitcom, Happily Divorced, which was inspired by her real-life relationship with her gay ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson. Fran recently starred in the new NBC sitcom, Indebted, about a Baby Boomer couple who go broke and have to move in with their adult son and his young family. She has worked with many great directors in films such as Rob Reiner's This is Spinal Tap, to which Fran won Esquire Magazine's One Minute Oscar, Milos Forman's Rag Time, and Francis Ford Coppola's Jack. She also starred in Beautician and the Beast opposite Timothy Dalton. Her famous voice is currently featured in the top-grossing SONY animated feature franchise film, Hotel Transylvania: In her role as Eunice, the wife of Frank Stein. In 2019, Fran starred in two indie films, The Creatress and After Class. An accomplished author, Fran received the prestigious NCCS writer's award for Cancer Schmancer, which, along with Enter Whining, were New York Times Best Sellers. She also penned the celebrated children's book, Being Wendy. Furthermore, Fran made her Broadway debut as “Madame” in Rodgers + Hammerstein's Tony-Award winning, Cinderella. Fran has won countless awards for her leadership in the health space, including the John Wayne Institute Woman of Achievement Award, the Gilda Award, City of Hope Woman of the Year Award, The Albert Einstein Medical School Lifetime Achievement Award, Queens College Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Citizen Artist Award.
