Episode 8 - Dating Isn't Always Funny Pt. 1

Meet Josh Nasar. A funny, caring, 47-year-old single guy living in LA. I would like to say he can do just about anything. He has gone from a businessman living in the Hollywood Hills to selling everything he owns to do what he really loves which is talking… Being a podcaster himself as well as an actor and stand up comedian. Josh has gone through a lot over the years including love addiction (yes it is a thing) and codependency issues. All of which he was brave enough to work on with the help of therapists and groups. Take a listen into this two part episode from a guy who has been there and done that but is OK if he wakes up alone as long as he knows he is happy. Much to be admired here so…. tune in!

Episode 7 - Freedom Tour Pt. 2

Episode 7 finds us back with Leah Carey, a Sex Communication Coach from the Pacific Northwest. As I edited this week’s episode her words of wisdom could not be more true and even be interchangeable. Relationships and sex aren’t just one size fits all. You need to find your footing and some times that takes courage and some times you need a little help. I found myself needing a little help this week and reached out to a professional to help me wade through some of the “muck” I couldn’t quite make sense of. Take a listen to this week’s episode and see if you can’t take a nugget away from what Leah has to say.

Episode 6 - Freedom Tour Pt. 1

This two part episode introduces you to Leah Carey. She is a Sexual Communications Coach which is not to be confused with a relationship coach. She helps her clients “go there” in an open, supportive and constructive way. Leah took what she calls her Freedom Tour across the country to get her to where she is today. Leah has taken her life by the horns and found her own way to be comfortable in her skin day by day while helping others find their voice and body confidence. This might not be for everyone… but I am all ears!

You can also listen to Leah’s Podcast on all platforms called Good Girls Talking About Sex!

Tips and Resources From This Episode:

Episode 1 - Meet The Parents

In this episode listeners will get to meet my parents, Gary and Susan. They have been together since 1970 and married for 44 years. I felt like this was a good place to start this series so you understand where I came from and the type of relationship I admire. My parents lived together for 5 years prior to marriage in what was considered “sin” in the 70’s and have gone on to survive the ups and downs for 49 years. They share some advice, some stories and a few of their communication tools. Some things will never change…love, respect and a good sense of humor.

Susan and Gary live in Southern California with their two dogs. Susan is a huge animal rescue advocate and volunteers saving dogs. Gary still works in the apparel industry and is the President of Left Coast Tee, a luxury lifestyle clothing line. www.leftcoasttee.com
