The most intriguing part of my podcast is that I get to speak with people from all walks of life. When I first started This is Life Unfiltered, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted it to be. I wasn’t sure the route I wanted to go down, because with any startup company, everything comes down to trial and error. I have many days where I record episodes with guests to find out that I screwed up the sound, or they didn’t have headphones in so there was an echo throughout the interview etc…which constantly reminds me that even when life is going well, something is always going to get in the way! It’s up to you, and me, to ride the wave.
I interviewed Joey Tierney a few weeks ago at my apartment in LA. I actually tried to cancel the interview, because I was so exhausted and depressed that day. I woke up feeling disappointed in myself and my work (I have many days like that) so I was no way interested in speaking to anyone!
When Joey came over, my entire day switched gears. I went from being in a weird mood to diving into her incredible story of resilience. Joey might be friends with Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge, and Britney Spear’s, but she actually grew up in the system in Orange County. She had no parents, no direction, and no reason to make her life something positive.
But she did.
I freakin’ love Joey, and I adore her story. I think this is an episode that might make your day just 100% better, but I’m a bit biased…
