Being a competitive gymnast for Team USA, surviving sexual abuse, and body acceptance with Mattie Larson

September 30, 2019
****THIS PODCAST EPISODE MAY BE TRIGGERING FOR SOME**** 
 
Mattie Larson is a former American artistic gymnast. In 2010 she was the national champion on floor exercises, and later that year at the World Championships was awarded a silver medal for competing with the USA in the team competition. Mattie continued to compete at UCLA college from 2012 to 2014. 
 
Mattie was also one of the victims of Larry Nassar, the convicted serial child molester who was the USA Gymnastics national team doctor. Mattie, VERY powerfully and BRAVELY gave a statement during Nassar’s sentencing hearing.

Since the Nassar case, Mattie has continued to be a spokesperson for sexual abuse survivors. She has helped me IMMENSELY in my own journey and is a true inspiration. I’m forever grateful for her love and support.

Definition of a "good boy":

good boy / good boi /

Wildflower cases, growing into yourself, and THE BACHELORETTE with Devon Lee Carlson

Wildflower cases, growing into yourself, and THE BACHELORETTE with Devon Lee Carlson

July 29, 2019

Devon Lee Carlson is the co-founder of those insanely cute phone cases Wildflower Cases, an instagram *STAR*, a model, and according to New York magazine is the #1 shopping influencer, even beating out YouTuber Emma Chamberlain and Rihanna!! She's also one of the HAPPIEST girls I know <3 I've always loved how she's never taking herself too seriously online, and is smiling in 95% of her photos which is SUCH A NICE CHANGE!!!!!! If I had to guess I would say that combo is likely part of the reason people are so drawn to her. 

Listen to us talk about the origins of wildflower cases (and how Miley Cyrus was so instrumental!), growing into yourself, and yes, THE BACHELORETTE. Which - since this week is the finale, I thought was appropriate.

Ali is the host of her own podcast, Health Is Hell, which satirizes the absurdity of America’s KALE-CRAZED culture by presenting candid conversations about taboo and imperfection in place of green juice and gyrotonic exercise. She also has a talk show called "Open Session" on Vice (the most recent episode was about cannabis and sex), and has written pieces for Refinery 29, Playboy, and New York Magazine.
