  • Carnal Clothes with Sam Salad (MEALS) on Blurring Lines Between Food and Fashion

    06/05/2022 Duración: 01h55min

    This week, a conversation with Sam Salad. As you'll hear, Sam is not only hilarious, but he’s also humble, original, creative, and truly one of the best writers—and especially copywriters—I’ve ever met. As he says about himself, he writes and he makes clothes. Sam with his partner Rebma are the designers behind the LA-based clothing line MEALS. As Sam writes, “the brand prepares non-gendered clothing inspired by food. MEALS bakes ‘food culture’ into apparel, blurring the lines between the clothes we eat and the food we wear.” We talk about that blur between food, bodies, eating, and clothing, and the juxtaposition of these topics led the conversation into interesting and unexpected directions. We also speak about how the timing of their young brand was impacted by the pandemic, collaborating in business with your romantic partner, prizing experiences over objects, body image and food culture much more. We recorded the episode about a month ago from my kitchen table; Sam came over with a bottle of rum and we t

  • Little Things: Annual Birthday Party Hosted by Sacha Jones

    29/04/2022 Duración: 01h37min

    This week, a very important person in my life—Sacha Jones—hosts the podcast. Every year for nearly a decade Sacha has come back on to host the episode the last week of April (the week of my birthday). This year she really outdid herself: she shocks me with questions sourced from my friends and family and a special guest joins us to host a special rapid-fire round. I truly knew none of this was happening beforehand and it felt like the surprise party I’ve always dreamed of. Sacha is one of the most creative, wise, and gentle people I know and our annual catch-ups end up being time capsules of what we’re leaning this year. Prior to her surprises, we cover craving focus while being people who do many things at once. The through-line I keep returning to in answering her questions is how much the little things—like simple routines, easy moments—mean to me. I will be back on the other side of the interview next week but until then I hope this conversation offers you something, that you come away from it feeling the

  • Norma Kamali on Dating, Aging, London in the 60s, Her Iconic Fashion Career, and "The More You Do, the More You Can Do"

    22/04/2022 Duración: 01h48min

    This week, a conversation with iconic designer Norma Kamali. Recorded over Zoom from her office in Manhattan, we cover her 50-year career, from graduating from FIT with a degree in illustration to working for Northwest Airlines—which allowed her to fly to London on the weekends for only $29. It felt like a time capsule to hear her talk about the cultural revolution in London in the 1960s and how she would bring back pieces for friends, which led her to start a store, and eventually design her own pieces. Soon her designs were worn by Bianca Jagger, Bette Midler, and Cher. But at 29 Norma left her marriage, which meant walking away from the brand she’d quietly built with only $98 in her pocket. But starting over ultimately led her to create a brand with longevity and panache. From her unique sleeping bag coat design (worn by the doormen at Studio 54 and by those standing outside hoping it would increase their chances of getting in) to the now-iconic red swimsuit Farrah Fawcett wore on that famous poster, Norma

  • From A Slight Change of Plans: A Blind Cook Becomes a Master Chef

    18/04/2022 Duración: 13min

    I'm sharing a special preview of A Slight Change of Plans, a podcast all about who we are and who we become in the face of change. Dr. Maya Shankar is a cognitive scientist who is an expert on human behavior, and she’s here to help us navigate the changes we all experience in our lives. She sits in intimate conversations with celebrity guests like Tiffany Haddish and Kacey Musgraves as well as everyday inspirations, like journalist Euna Lee, who was held captive in North Korea for 140 days, and Doctor Richard Harris, who rescued a boy's soccer team trapped deep in a cave in Thailand. You'll also meet change experts — including leading grief therapist Julia Samuel, psychologist Adam Grant, and author Michael Pollan— whose scientific insights will help us make better decisions and live happier, more fulfilling lives. In this preview, you’ll hear Maya in conversation with Christine Ha, the first blind contestant and winner of the reality TV show MasterChef. Christine talks about losing her vision and how she had

  • In the Weeds: Herbalist Vanessa Chakour on Our Earthly Bodies

    15/04/2022 Duración: 01h53min

    This week I spoke with herbalist and author Vanessa Chakour. At 17, a life-threatening accident led Vanessa to heal her eating disorder and work through sexual assault trauma, which in turn led to her becoming a professional boxer, eventually bringing her to New York City where she began studying herbalism. Now, she’s an author and educator who trains others in her field of helping people to connect to their environments. Her work is rooted in the natural world and what she calls our own inner-wild, or our intuitive connection to ourselves.   In this episode we cover the connection between eating disorder recovery and our bodies connecting to nature as well as how consent and anger relate to weeds like dandelion. We get into making herbal infusions and the creative process; writing for emotional wellness; navigating highs such as new relationships and career successes (Vanessa's in one of those highs now); and how to manage the nervous system during both highs and lows. We also discuss her new book, Awakening

Val is a meditation and mindfulness educator, writer and the co-host of the We Made It Weird podcast with her husband, comedian Pete Holmes. Val is hilarious, gentle, wise, incredibly smart and one of my favorite people.

This second half of our conversation is a bit sillier! We talk more about therapy, what we were like as teens, mean girls, finding your hobbies and creative process, as well as the rom coms and style trends we love from the early 2000s.In addition to her mindfulness work, Val is one of the most talented and creative people I know: she teaches dance, sings in a choir and, most recently, wrote a screenplay, which she discussed at th

  • Like No Time Has Passed with Rosie Acosta

    25/03/2022 Duración: 01h11min

    Today’s conversation is with author and mindfulness teacher Rosie Acosta. Growing up in East LA in the 90s as a first-generation Mexican-American, Rosie suffered from agoraphobia, panic attacks, and anxiety. After being arrested a few times, at 16, she began to feel disillusioned with her family’s unwavering Catholic faith and soon after discovered meditation and yoga, eventually leading her to her career as a yoga and meditation teacher. Since then, she’s been featured in Yoga Journal, Forbes, The New York Post and more. Rosie and I met over five years ago when she visited Detroit with Yoga Journal Magazine. Recently, we spent a morning catching up, first in an episode of her weekly podcast, then in this conversation, where we cover navigating cycles in relationships, disillusionment and faith, and her new book and the process of writing it. Show notes:- Listen to my episode on Rosie's podcast on Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Youtube- Follow Rosie on Instagram- There is one spot open in my creative clinic -- if

  • The 1 a.m. Conversation: New York Times Columnist Kyle Buchanan on Writing, Togetherness, Mad Max & More

    18/03/2022 Duración: 56min

    This week I spoke to New York Times journalist and author of Blood, Sweat & Chrome, Kyle Buchanan. He reports on pop culture and writes the NYT awards season column, The Projectionist, which he took over from the late great journalist David Carr. Prior to joining The Times in 2018, Kyle was a senior editor at Vulture, where he covered the movie industry. Appropriately, he gives advice on writing and we talk about the craft of interviewing, creating safety in conversation, connection, movies, returning to theaters, and the upcoming Oscars. And of course, we talk about his new book on Mad Max and the process of writing an oral history. Since the episode is shorter than some, I tee it up with a helpful piece of advice from Kyle's predecessor, David Carr. I loved this conversation about connection, pop culture, writing, and collaboration. Show notes:- Check out The Projectionist and follow @kylethomasbuchanan- Order Blood, Sweat, and Chrome: The Wild and True Story of Mad Max: Fury Road- Terry Gross interview

In this conversation, Nadine shares how, during her years of waitressing in grad school, she made products for her coworkers to try, and how she studied the female body in depth, eventually writing her dissertation on the female orgasm. We also get into aging and whether she feels extra pressure to sustain beauty and youth as the face of her brand. Show notes:- Get 10% off your order at Living Libations with code LETITOUT- Get 10% off your order of Primeadine spermidine supplement with code LETITOUT- Find Nadine on Instagram- There are a couple of spots open in my one-on-one creative consulting!

    This week I spoke to actress, advocate, philanthropist, and producer Torrey Joël DeVitto. She recently wrapped a six-season run on the NBC drama, “Chicago Med”, and we spoke on zoom from her farm in Michigan. A few years into her acting career, Torrey began volunteering in hospice and tells me how spending time with the dying shifted her perspective on life, death, and what's important. We also talk about navigating change within her industry, growing up around icons like Stevie Nicks and Billy Joel and how that influenced her creativity and work ethic.  Outside of her acting work, Torrey is an advocate for women's safety, health, and rights. She is on the board of directors of the youth-based organization SafeBae, so we speak about consent, safety, and education around sexual assault.

  • Why Do Women Fear Bitcoin? Isabel Foxen Duke Teaches Me About the Economic Justice Properties of Decentralized Currency (85% of Bitcoin Traders Are Men)

    21/01/2022 Duración: 01h28min

    Today’s guest has been a friend for nearly a decade and a guest several times. In a departure from the wide-ranging conversations we usually have here, today we focus on about a topic she's recently been exploring. There’s no better person at explaining concepts to me than my friend Isabel Foxen Duke. You might know her as as a leading expert in the body positivity and body neutrality space. Her work has been seminal in my eating disorder recovery, and she was my introduction into areas including fat politics, intuitive eating, and health at every size. When she told me she was learning about cryptocurrency, I was all ears despite finance and tech being intimidating subjects to me. According to Bloomberg, 85% of Bitcoin owners are men, so I wanted to have a woman on to talk about it. Isabel's patience in explaining esoteric concepts gave me a baseline understanding and sparked a curiosity to learn more. We used my beginner's mind to record a non-intimidating introductory discussion, specifically about the eco

I flew through an early copy and bring up some of my favorite insights from the book in this conversation. We also talk about finding richness in ruts, the paradox of choice and “infinite browsing mode", leaving space for surprise in our days, two kinds of perfectionism, the difference between standards and expectations, cringing at old work, and more.

  • Perfection Means Dead: Actor Joshua Jackson on Young Fame, Nostalgia, Worthiness, Fatherhood, & Lingering in Uncomfortable Places

    07/01/2022 Duración: 01h22min

    You may know today's guest actor, Joshua Jackson, from Dawson's Creek or The Mighty Ducks, or from his later shows, including Fringe, The Affair, Little Fires Everywhere, and most recently, Dr. Death, which earned him a People’s Choice award nomination. In this conversation (recorded over Zoom in the midst of the holidays), he  candidly shares lessons on navigating young fame, love and feeling worthy of it, what he’s learning as a new parent,  and how the vulnerable messy moments are where we grow. We talk about what his Broadway debut role in Children of a Lesser God taught him about listening and connection and how that has influenced his anti-racism work. He also tells me about his new production company, Liquid Media Group, which aims to create an easier path for independent filmmakers to share their content while allowing them ownership. He has enormous depth in his life experiences and I loved talking to him even more than I expected.Show Notes:- Find Joshua on Instagram | Twitter- I'm @katiedalebout  -

  • Becoming Sturdy & Expansive with Jules Bakshi, Founder & CEO of GOOD MOVE

    31/12/2021 Duración: 01h05min

    Back on the podcast this week is Jules Bakshi, a professional dancer, choreographer, and founder and CEO of GOOD MOVE, a dance and mindful fitness studio for all genders, races, and sizes located in Brooklyn. Jules was in LA, so we caught up for hours at my kitchen table and reflected on the growth, change, and lessons she’s learned this year. It’s a fitting last episode of 2021 because Jules' first conversation, recorded at her kitchen table, was the last episode I recorded in Brooklyn on New Years' Eve 2019, the day before I left. In this new episode, Jules talks about being led by what is working rather than what is not, non-attachment, softening to become both more sturdy and more expansive, and what she's excited about for this coming year. Show notes:- Check out GOOD MOVE on the Web | Instagram- All of the Let It Out Kits, including Resolutions Reframe, are 22% off with the code "twentytwo"- Subscribe to our newsletter to get show notes sent straight to your inbox- Follow @letitouttt on Instagram- Photo
