Aron Bender is joined by Kelli Tennant, a podcaster and CEO of Soulfire Productions. I first talked with Kelli in 2019, shortly after she walked away from reporting on the Dodgers, Lakers and other LA sports teams and events. Kelli has experienced an awakening, on many levels. She's come out as bisexual, has explored and embraced plant-based medicines such as mushrooms and ayahuasca, and is now engaged to Conner Moore, host of the Politically Homeless Podcast. And together, Kelli and Conner host the OK, Babe Podcast. In this episode Kelli and I discuss her evolution, how she's dealt with the death of her mom in 2020 when they weren't on the best of terms, her relationship with her dad and brother, plus lots and lots of mental health, anxiety and self-care.

Aron Bender is joined by Liberté Chan -- who's been with KTLA for years. For nearly a decade she was the meterologist on the KTLA Weekend Morning News but is now part of KTLA's LA Unscripted. We first talked two years ago for my previous podcast but a lot has changed since then. Before Liberté's mom passed away from pancreatic cancer she got to meet the man to whom Liberté is now engaged: Luis Strohmeier. We talk about how yoga helped Liberté get through her mom's passing and the pandemic, and how Luis's experience also helped guide her through the darkness.
