The Power in Sharing Your Personal Story

In S2E4 of HeARTtalk, Tracey Michae'l speaks with author, journalist, and public intellectual, Lori Tharps, about the power of telling our personal stories for personal and collective healing. It’s inevitable that when sharing our personal stories--whether via memoir, essays, or oral storytelling--there will be a myriad of questions that come up. What part of the story should I tell? How much of it should I tell? Who am I "speaking" to and why? Do I need to give the other people in my story a "heads up"? HeARTtalk takes a deep dive into what it means to be “ready” to tell your story.

Processing Grief

The timeline for grief is not standardized. We all journey through it in our own ways. In this episode, TMLG talks with Neysa Taylor, an author and leader in the communications field who recently lost her husband of 17 years, Chris, after his long battle with cancer. The two talked about the ways grief has shown up for Taylor and how she has chosen to help herself and her children navigate it. They also explore how grief shapes us as we try to prepare for a world that’s different from the one we knew before our loss.

LEAVING CORPORATE: Finding Peace in the Pivot

In our SEASON TWO opener, Tracey Michae’l talks with Michelle Richard about what it means to find peace after leaving her lucrative corporate career. As an attorney and former C-suite corporate executive for a billion dollar company, the list of Michelle’s accolades is long. But what happens when the concessions and compromises one has to make to reach that level of power and success become too much? Well…you pivot. And you do so with fierceness and grace. That’s what Michelle did and HeARTtalk is grateful that she shares a bit of her sojourn with us.
