Greg and Amiira are joined by producer Land to discuss their binge eating dirty secrets at the dawn of Easter Candy season and the championship level of lacking of self-control each has for trigger foods.  (Note to listener: Easter PEEPS do not fare well in this discussion.) Greg’s corporate gig at a racetrack in Las Vegas happened to provide the perfect opportunity for an audience member to give in to her own compulsion to privately insult his opening act comic and the gleeful dissection of glory and crazy that humans truly are.

New Habits New Rewards

New Habits New Rewards

Amiira and Greg recap their trip to New York to do the Today Show, the full shakedown Greg received at the airport by the TSA, flying through the Polar Vortex Arctic Freeze and Greg’s literal thin skin. Is there a difference between breaking an old habit and making a new one? After failing countless times to break old habits, Amiira is trying to just concentrate on making a new habit of acting as a better version of herself and letting that alone be the reward and measure of progress rather than someone else’s response. Greg has the realization that what’s in his heart may not be in his actions. 
With Greg out of town,  Amiira is joined by her fellow Witches of the San Fernando Valley Moon Zappa and Jackie Harris Greenberg for a no holds barred romp through vibrators, the love hate relationship of women and balls of the man variety, the realization that we all still identify with our early traumas and insecurities and the weight of all the old stories we drag along with us about ourselves that continue to harm.  The need to agitate our injuries to make peace with our part of our mistakes and behaviors, clear the air where the vibrations are damaging and the willingness to be dedicated to do the work needed regardless of results. Plus a hearty discussion about teen sexual education, the access to mature sexual content, lessons from a tantric seminar and the idea that your first sexual experience is the you continue to recreate throughout your life. This episode is sponsored by Green Chef. Yum!

Episode Description: Is pining for the past interfering with the present and creating an expectation that can’t be fulfilled in your relationship? Amiira and Greg are joined by producer Land and Photographer Church to roundtable the effect of nostalgia on your romantic relationship. How remembering the past, being overly attached to that younger version of yourself can be a toxic comparative force that wrecks your present and threatens your future. Trying to recreate a time or feeling with elements that no longer exist do to time, circumstance and personal evolution can leave you feeling dissatisfied and resentful that you can’t go back to the newness or effortlessness that once existed in simpler times. We traipse through the nostalgia for a time where anticipation existed for all the big “Firsts” or milestones and stumble onto the realization that we mourn the period of our lives when we were mostly looking forward because most of your life still laid ahead.  It’s deep, it’s funny and it’s real. Enjoy!    
When Greg is out of town Amiira’s friends Moon Zappa and Jackie Greenberg drop by to talk about the magic of Christmas traditions and the realization that there are FOUR parts of giving and receiving gifts. Then Moon fills Jackie and Amiira in on proper butt plug etiquette and the ladies bring the R-E-A-L when a potential suitor gifts Moon a necklace made of dried vegetables plus a bonus impromptu poem by Jackie about said necklace.  We zing zag to the confusion of people who try to lead from behind.  The discovery of white holes, the inverse of black holes lead to possibility of positive chaos explosions and the disappearance of funny men and Producer Land wins Christmas Eve with his family’s We Love Jesus and Grilled Cheesus tradition!

This week’s musings include Amiira’s newest obsession with her Moon Pod that compliments her Gravity Blanket to create a full zero gravity anti-anxiety immersion experience and Greg and Amiira talks about the differences that can make them complimentary at times and adversarial at others. Then producer Land joins to discuss the holidays, family traditions, Richard Simmons dolls, sailor suits, lederhosen, gift giving and intention. 
Comedian and Television Host John Henson joins Amiira and Greg to discuss their friendship and how men's friendships differ from women’s in what closeness means.  The craziness of life and how suddenly you go from being at the height of everything to having your life completely blow up. The desire to assign value to things in your life impulsively that are completely different in hindsight or retrospect. The habit of boxing and storing things emotionally that you can keep bottled up to endlessly fuel future disappointment. Coming to the understanding that carrying around anger that is toxic when the truth simply is that no one denied me anything they had the power to give me.
Widely known as The Single Woman, best-selling author, blogger and social media star Mandy Hale drops in on Amiira and Greg to talk about her new book “You Are Enough.”  A soul baring document of  feeling trapped by the successful persona and brand she created that no longer felt authentic to the life she wanted to live, her struggle with deep depression that resulted in an intensive partial hospitalization psych program where she rebuilt her self worth through grieving, healing and intensive therapy that led her to write “You Are Enough.” The realization that you have to lose yourself to find yourself, that sometimes losing something is actually making room for something better and while the happy times might be great, it’s the sad times that make you great.
The multitalented Merrin Dungey (Alias, Big Little Lies, The Fix) drops some serious knowledge when she joins Amiira and Greg. Coming in hot with, "Say what you mean, mean what you say and don’t say it mean," Merrin brings real tools for having healthy, strong, and most importantly effective communication in all your relationships.  Traversing topics from understanding your power as a girl/woman, the horror show of teens dressing too provocatively and the discomfort it causes Dads and concern it causes Moms, finding your place and sorting your life amid divorcing with children, and the female mind at work as an Super Type A personality and how motherhood makes you a multiple instead of an individual.  Fascinating, insightful and wildly entertaining! 
Comedian H. Alan Scott (You’re Making It Worse podcast/Latter Day Jew) joins Amiira and Greg for emotional bumper cars where Greg and H. Alan realize that they are mirror Straight/Gay images of each other.  Having both survived cancer and been tasked with restarting their cancer treatment paused careers, Greg and H. Alan bond over the reinvention that is the silver lining of personal setback.  Now in a healthy relationship H. Alan is bringing the very first boyfriend he’s ever brought home to his Mormon family for Thanksgiving and what preparation is required with all parties for full family immersion.
