    Aron Bender hangs out with Alex Gervasi aka @alexonthemic. She turned her years of curating playlists on FM stations in Lexington, Virginia Beach, Austin and Los Angeles into becoming Universal Music Group's first Director of Global Curation Strategy. When we talked for another podcast in 2019 we covered dating life, handling anxiety around body image, self care, women empowerment. Alex and I spent a lot of time during this episode talking about the importance of therapy, dating during the pandemic, giving ourselves grace, forgiveness, taking breaks, and learning to love our flawed selves. The New Jersey native recently resumed her podcast, "Alex Tries Her Best."
