"Aunt Shirley's Meatballs"

What We Ate

"She’s Italian New Yorker and she just makes so much food for the family. Food for them is all about really being with your family and connecting with people, it’s not just about eating it’s about this whole moment you have with your family. "My guest on today’s episode, Meagan Bickerstaff, originally hails from San Francisco and now lives in another seaside town (perhaps not as sunny though).  She recorded this episode from her home in Brighton where she lives  with her partner Jukes and their two beautiful children – Hudson (whose nickname is "Bear") and Wilder.  Meagan shares a very special recipe that her Italian grandad and his sister brought with them when they immigrated to New York in the early 1930s and even though she will be the first to admit that she isn’t the best cook – the dish actually came out really good!   Meagan is one of those people whom you just can’t comprehend how she fits in the time to do everything.  She heads up marketing for a start up company, launched her own influence platform a couple of years ago called Inkwave, is community lead of  the blog @happynewmum, the volunteer head of marketing for women in communications network Bloom and all of this whilst being a mum to two boys under five. Other than cooking her family’s wonderful dish, we discuss some more serious topics such as the fantastic initiatives for diversity and equality in the workplace that Bloom is doing – to the more colourful topics of Trolls World Tour the movie  and of course, Thanksgiving. Please rate, review and subscribe if you enjoy the podcast.

Ep. 27 – A Passover talk with Aunt Shirley

Zooming in the Lens

A Marathon With Katrina Chester & Cara Albero. Cara in NY joins Katrina in LA for an impromptu practice! Aren’t those the best though? With Passover honored this week, the topic of family naturally arrived. Cara shares her recent practice moment involving her mom and her aunt Shirley related to relationships and the navigation of practice when reactions of obligation and guilt arrive. Katrina shares her beginner amazement after diving into one of the five books of Moses (Exodus) from the Jewish Bible. “I am so honored that now I can open up to ancient wisdom from many religious teachings. Way more than I was exposed to growing up, and once only seen through my individual lens of limits. Please pardon my naive, but heartfelt, interpretation fueled by excitement of the symbology of another profound living, breathing road map” As Ram Dass might say “an accomplishment for an Italian girl from NY” – Maybe someday we can live in a world where all, no matter what Religion, what is heard in “Good Pesach” is a message of compassion for one another because we have all felt “passed over” or a lack of Freedom, from something at some point in each of our lives.” ~ Katrina Chester ~ Apologies for the length!
