This week's episode covers family, identity, heritage and making art with fear still there. It's a variety show featuring several different new podcasts and clips I loved from each of them talking about everything from cultural intensity with a jewish studies and pop culture writer to talking about inner child work to a clip about making art even when you feel like an imposter. Every year I run a workshop called Let [A Podcast] Out. As part of the course, each participant can an episode to a contest to have their show featured here. It was hard to choose a winner this time especially but always because per alumni page so many cool shows have come out of this workshop. In this episode, you'll hear clips from the 3 winning podcasts from last semester: in bold company, Rootless Cosmos, and Impostor Syndrome. While these shows are quite unique I saw a through line through them and am so proud of each of them.
in bold company with Kristina Gonzalez Sander
in bold company is a lifestyle podcast and community created to give women of color the opportunity to relate, connect and support each other as they explore their identities. The podcast dives deep into topics like wellness, entrepreneurship, self-development, family, money, and more. These are the conversations we’ve been waiting for, the ones we don’t hear enough. Let’s dig in.
Episode 1: Inner Child Work, Ancestral Healing, and Feminine Energy with Ferny Barceló
Ready to talk about family? Oh yeah, we go there. Our guest is our Ferny Barceló is a holistic therapist for women plus a yoga and meditation teacher. In this episode, definitely get a bit esoteric. We talk about exploring our relationships with our parents, our ancestors, white-passing and being a proud Latina.
Connect with us on @inboldcompany You can find Ferny Barceló and her offerings on her website or on Instagram. Ferny references the book It Didn't Start with You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle by Mark Wolynn. Birth chart readings by Far Out Astro. Highly recommend. If you want your own set of Oracle Cards, my friend Kati has a shop in Austin (and online) called Rituals Austin.

Clarissa talks with Abraham Riesman. Abe is a reporter and essayist for New York magazine and often writes for its culture and entertainment site, Vulture.

In this episode, Clarissa and Abe talk about his Jewish and journalist journeys, find out they went to the same Hebrew school, and they dig into the raison d'etre behind this podcast.
