Mark “Kid” Corona On Why He Left Radio For Podcasting

Today’s show highlights a man who describes himself as: “I’m the Whitest Mexican you’ll ever meet, or I guarantee your money back!”

He’s hilarious and zany, and his name is Mark “Kid” Corona.  He has been a radio personality and actively on the air since 1992.  Mark worked up and down the West Coast and eventually landed his dream job as a morning show host in Los Angeles. Then, he got fired! He’ll share that story and many others today, including the biggest reasons why he quit radio to become a podcast host.  His pod is called “The Mark Corona Podcast“, and he says that, if you’re not amused, inspired, entertained, or educated by his episodes, then he hasn’t done his job, and you can feel free to call him out!

Mark is a truly humble, great guy.  You’ll enjoy this episode as we reminisce about the 90’s…you’ll also hear a great clip of when he pretended to be Ryan Seacrest on the air!!

Natalie Vartanian On Owning Her Sexuality and Exploring Polyamory

Today I welcome a podcast colleague, friend, relationship advisor/coach and personal tarot interpreter Natalie Vartanian. After appearing on Natalie’s new podcast Taboo and Turn On, I wanted to return the favor and feature her as a guest on NOL. We threw around some possible topics to discuss, and we decided on a hot one for Natalie, i.e. owning your sexuality and giving yourself the freedom to explore it. Personally, exploring her sexuality has led her to polyamory, which she explains in the show.

We discuss what it means to own your sexuality, some myths associated with expressing it (especially as a woman), why polyamory is good for some people but not for others, and a lot more.

Natalie is a certified life coach, relationship expert, business strategist, writer, and speaker/teacher. Her mission is to inspire people to dream big and take the risks to have it all and live a turned on life. She has worked with women from across 5 continents to help them get the sex lives and the relationships they want, in addition to connecting to their passion work in the world and building business that make a difference in a way that feels fun, easy, and alive. Her work has been featured in elephant journal, YourTango, and Good Men Project. She is the host of the podcast, Taboo and Turn On, and previously co-hosted Sex the Podcast. Natalie is working on self publishing her first book about her sexual escapades and revolutions, slated to come out early 2018. You can get on the waiting list for her book’s release by going to www.sexmoneygodbook.com.

Wess Haubrich’s Call to Join The Nu Romantics

Wess Haubrich is a 31 year old self-trained photographer and visual artist who is no stranger to NOL . Listen to Wess’s first appearance on the show, where he shares how he kicked an addiction to Dilaudid and used art as a catharsis, to treat his depression, anxiety, and chronic migraines.  Listen here.

Wess returns this time to discuss a new project he is a part of: The Nu Romantics, a group of like-minded lovers of art of all kinds, including books (especially erotica), pop art, photography, film, music, humor, poetry, culture and more. Founded by authors Mystk Knight, Ashlee Shades, Tori Jo Dean, and R.B. O’Brien, their goal is to help new, as well as more experienced artists, tap into and focus on their creativity, and especially to develop a more expanded version of the concept of “romantic”.  As a matter of fact, they say they formed the group to revolt against the preconceived notions of romance as a happy ending.  Instead, their group spreads the message that romance can be found in everything, from nature to pain to the erotic…and even death.  The Nu Romantics passionately believe that, like in Wess’s story, art truly does save lives.

The Nu Romantics are an active and growing presence on Facebook and Twitter (join the creative fun using #NuR or #NuRomantics as hash tags), with many writing and art prompts every week, with the explicit goal of getting the public to participate, and a vibrant online publication where Wess is an editor. 

Join in on an enlightening discussion about art through their dynamic weekly schedule at The Nu Romantics Facebook Group.

Author Tristan Jackson On Rising Up and Dreaming the Impossible

This week is all about dusting yourself off and getting right back up again, stronger than ever before, despite your circumstances.

My guest is inspirational author Tristan Jackson, who reached out to me with the objective of coming on the show to share her messages of hope, rising up and dreaming the impossible. Speaking of which, her debut work is entitled “Dream the Impossible”, and it chronicles her life experiences and the key life-changing moments that helped her personally rise up. In the episode, we discuss the importance of having the chance and the choice to break the poverty and abuse cycle, and once you hear what Tristan was exposed to as a very young girl, you will be in awe of her choice to break free and to prove that anyone can thrive.

She is currently touring with the book and using it as a platform to help shape the lives of youth and young adults everywhere. She makes me smile!

Dr. Tara Nayak On The Blood Type Diet and Generative Medicine

Today it’s all about health, and the focus turns to the Blood Type Diet, the fascinating field of Epigenetics, generative medicine and more. I personally benefitted from trying the Blood Type Diet, which went from a 30-day experiment of changing my food choices to my now ongoing lifestyle.  I absolutely love it.  What’s even more exciting is that I had no idea you could go much, much deeper with it, and literally shift your own DNA in order to avert disease that could be lurking in your genes.  My guest, Dr. Tara Nayak, a naturopathic practitioner in Philadelphia, PA and I discuss.

Dr. Tara Nayak grew up knowing she wanted to be a doctor but not agreeing with our healthcare system, including overprescribing and lack of connection in patient care. She went on to Temple University to get my bachelor’s degree in Biology but chose to concentrate heavily on genetics. At this time she took some of the FIRST courses ever offered at her university in the fields of epigenetic, genomics, and proteomics. (That tells you how new the fields of epigenetic, nutrigenomics, etc. really are!)

She graduated in 2009, taught high school science for 2 years, then went back to medical school at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine. It was here that she met Dr. Peter D’Adamo and forced herself under his wing. She took his classes, did clinical rotations with him, externships at his clinic, and was eventually selected as his resident physician at the Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine. This is a clinic where all patients are treated based upon blood type with the addition of further parameters to establish personalization including body measurements, lab tests, and history taking of their health and current symptoms. 

Dr. Tara has continued to work with Dr. D’Adamo to learn and contribute to his latest developed tools in personalized medicine:

1. “Opus 23” which allows doctors to evaluate specific genes to assess patient risk and determine the best plan of action in terms of diet, nutrients, herbs, etc. and,

2. “Utopia” a micro biome analysis program that analyzes gut bacteria trends and guides dietary/supplementation decision to promote healthy gut flora. Dr. Tara contributes to editing and mining data for the program as well as participate in teaching other health care practitioners how to use this software in their practice.

The two doctors have also collaborated on teaching doctoral level courses including “Nutritional Genomics and Epigenetics” and “Generative Medicine”

Dr. Tara has a private practice in Philadelphia, PA and teaches at the University of Bridgeport’s College of Naturopathic Medicine as well as Maryland University of Integrative Health’s Doctorate of Clinical Nutrition Program.

Sharon Chatten On ‘The Method’ – How It Can Help Anyone, Actor Or Not

I’m delighted to have the wonderful Sharon Chatten on the show this week.  A special thank you to Terry Berland for connecting us! 

In this show, we discuss what method acting is, why it is so misunderstood, what good acting actually is, how this type of training can help anyone, even non-actors, and why Sharon is deeply passionate about passing on the legacy.

About Sharon: Since 1980, Sharon has been teaching ongoing acting classes and working extensively as a private coach in Los Angeles and New York. Before committing full-time to teaching, Sharon had leading roles as an actress since she was 8 years old in hundreds of plays, television series and films.

Sharon was made a lifetime member of The Actors Studio in 1975 and a lifetime member of Ensemble Studio Theatre in 1980. Under the personal invitation of Robert Redford, she participated in the founding two seasons of the Sundance Film Institute as a Resource Artist acting in numerous films by new filmmakers including playing Yolandia in the film Yolandia opposite Robert Duvall.

She has taught at Yale University (Fine Artists), Stanford University (Graduate School of Business), and the USC School of Cinema. She’s lectured at UC Santa Barbara (Film Department, and has been a guest on numerous panels including those for SAG and AFTRA.

Sharon has had the honor and delight of working alongside master talents: Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Uta Hagen, Robert Redford, Robert Duvall, and Al Pacino, just to name a few.

Some of her students include celeb talents Jim Carrey, Cameron Diaz, Matt Dillon, James Gandolfini, Charlie Hunnam, Will Smith, Ben Stiller, and even Justin Bieber.  Remember Full Metal Jacket?  Well, you’re going to find out why Vincent D’Onofrio, who played Private Leonard Lawrence in that film is a particularly amazing Method actor, and why he still uses this technique today…the same technique that’s he been practicing with Sharon for over 20 years.
