This month on the Well Woman Show, I interview Dorothy and Carla from the band Lindy Vision. An Albuquerque band comprised of three Native and African American sisters, Lindy Vision is an indie-rock band that’s been described as a “female Devo” with hints of M.I.A. and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They just released their newest album, “Adult Children Part 1.”

On the show today, we talk about:

-The story they tell thru their music about being adult children of alcoholics and substance abuse
-Where the band gets its inspiration from
-How the three sisters find their courage and resilience

156 Gender Equity in the Film Industry with Christine McHugh

Today on the show I talk to Christine McHugh, film maker and president of New Mexico Women in Film. We talk about:

  1. What is being done to address the gender inequality and disparity in Tv and Film and the ReFrame movement.
  2. How Christine found herself in film at the age of 50.
  3. What’s next for Christine and the New Mexico Women in TV and Film Society.

NMWIF is championing a strategy developed by WIFT Los Angeles called ReFrame which is a revolutionary certification structure for production companies willing to make diversity and gender equity a priority in the staffing of their projects. Since last year‘s Oscar awards ceremony when Frances McDormand brought the concept of an “inclusion rider” to the greater public this idea has been gaining real momentum.

Christine McHugh is a Film Maker who comes to the medium through her many years of work as a Theatre Director. She directed the short comedy film, On The Nature Of Hotness which one the 2013 New York City International Film Festival for Best Short Comedy and was the official selection at ten film festivals in 2013 and 2014. She is currently the president of New Mexico Women in Film based in Sant Fe.

154 Just Giovanna: Give Yourself the Love You Seek

Waiting for the person you love to buy you flowers? Nope. Bought my own.
Waiting for the person whose affection you seek to finally come around? Nope. I was nice to myself.
Waiting for your kids to appreciate you? Nope. I appreciate myself.
Waiting for your boss or colleagues to thank you? Nope. I thanked myself by noticing what an awesome job I did.
Sure, it’s nice when these things happen, and they do, but wait for them in order to be happy? Hells no!
 
What are you waiting for?

On the show today, I share my thoughts on finding love. Guess what? We can stop seeking love and love ourselves! Even if you’re in a committed relationship, you may still be seeking that person’s love in ways that disempower you.  What if you no longer relied on the actions of people you love to validate you and give you the love you seek? What if you could fill the emptiness or loneliness you feel with your own love? Listen up for some inspiration and tips on how to make this happen in your life.
