Show Notes for Season 1, Episode 4: Big Move Energy


Alethea talks about how having to move her stuff from one part of Los Angeles to another made her confront her borderline hoarding tendencies. 


Giveaway Winner: Jenn Dupke

Jenn chose to pay forward her giveaway prize to children's literacy and anti-racism, so I've donated $25 to Literally Healing at Children's Hospital LA and $25 to We Need Diverse Books. I'm also requesting a donation match for both of these nonprofits through my employer.


Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts and I might read it on the show!

Participate in #cleanyourroompodcastchallenge!

Take a before photo of your space -- make sure there's nothing of a private nature, like your home address or the like, or any humans in the photo who have not/are unable to consent to being included in the image. 

Clean up, then take an after photo. You can take video too, and share multiples of each, since Instagram allows up to 10 photos or videos in a multi-media post. 

You can tell us whatever you want in the captions, but make sure you put the hashtag #cleanyourroompodcastchallenge in there somewhere! We might choose to share/repost some posts and stories as well if your profile is public.

Ask me a question "on the air"! 

You can send me an audio message at and I might play it and answer it on a future episode.

I'm not yet scheduling guest appearances from people I don't know personally. If you are someone I know from pre-podcast, please reach out. If you are someone I don't know... reach out anyway! I'd be happy to hear from you. Email
