What happens when your plans get turned upside down? What happens when you have to begin again? This two-part episode starts on a personal note and ends with exciting introductions of TWO new co-hosts! First, Upside Down Podcast founders Kayla and Lindsy share the unexpected events that happened between Jan. 6 and Feb. 6 in both of their families, sharing with vulnerability and heart as they process their grief along with their hopes, reflecting on endings and beginnings. Then, they look ahead to the future of Upside Down Podcast, introducing new co-hosts for the coming season, Alissa Molina and Gina Ciliberto!
Upside Down Podcast is an ecumenical podcast, bridging the divide between Catholic and Protestant thought, and we're grateful to welcome our Catholic sisters Alissa and Gina to the digital table!
Meet Gina: Gina spends a lot of time with nuns as the mission promoter for the Dominican Sisters of Hope. When she's not learning about the sisters' radical take on God, she's writing about food, travel, and justice on a freelance basis.
In her spare time, she can be found snuggling foster bulldogs, exploring NYC, helping to run her local CSA, and hosting friends in her Bronx apartment.
Meet Alissa: Alissa loves being a wife and mom. Her family of seven lives just outside of Austin, Texas where in between packing lunches and finding matching socks, she thinks a lot about how to become a saint by loving well.
Alissa has learned more and more to revel in the little things that add up to fill big spaces. Things like kitchen dance parties, family movie nights, coffee with a friend, and at-home dates are among her very favorites.
