NEW INTERVIEW WITH HOST STACEY GUALANDI!

A BRAND NEW interview with Sukey Forbes, author of “The Angel in My Pocket: A Story of Love, Loss and Life After Death,” on The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi.

Sukey advocates for her special cause of helping people deal with the process of grief, and is among a group of women featured in the newly released “20 Women Changemakers: Taking Action Around the World” who are making a difference across the globe.

We first profiled Sukey here in 2014 following the release of her memoir, a candid and emotional journey of a mother’s grief following the sudden death of her 6-year-old daughter Charlotte.

Now Sukey is recapturing the joy of life with two new writing projects on mid-life reinvention. She tries to answer the question: “What does one do when they gaze into the second act of their life and want to make it a true adventure for learning, expanding, and loving?”

You’ll be surprised to hear what Sukey is doing now for her second act.

NEW INTERVIEW WITH HOST STACEY GUALANDI!

A BRAND NEW conversation on The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi and Doniece Sandoval, founder of Lava Mae, which brings showers and dignity to the homeless.

We first profiled Doniece and her organization for The Women’s Eye in 2014; now she is one of several women who are featured in the newly released “20 Women Changemakers: Taking Action Around the World.”

Listen on iTunes

After observing an overwhelming number of homeless individuals in San Francisco who were stripped of their dignity without a simple daily shower, Doniece launched Lava Mae almost five years ago, by retrofitting buses into mobile showers. This “radical hospitality” has been transformative in improving services for those less fortunate and changing the face of homelessness in San Francisco.

Her approach to solving an overwhelming problem is catching on in a big way across the country. Lava Mae has branched out to Los Angeles, now offers “Pop-Up Care Villages,” and shows others how to follow her lead with BUILDIT toolkits.

Doniece shares why she went a whole week without showering, who are the people Lava Mae serves, how we can all spread this service to other communities and what it feels like to be called a “superhero” by her daughter.

We are also thrilled to announce that on October 7th, Doniece will be included in a panel including Stacey, as well as author and moderator Laurie McAndish King, at  Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA, as part of the launch of “20 Women Changemakers: Taking Action Around the World.”

NEW INTERVIEW WITH HOST STACEY GUALANDI!

Stacey has a BRAND NEW interview for The Women’s Eye Radio with Laurie McAndish King, the award-winning author of the just released “Your Crocodile Has Arrived: More Stories from a Curious Traveler.”

Never one to pass up a challenge somewhere around the world, Laurie has been a little busy since last we profiled her three years ago with her debut, “Lost, Kidnapped, Eaten Alive: True Stories From a Curious Traveler.” Not only is she an accomplished author and essayist for numerous publications, Laurie has also contributed over a dozen stories for The Women’s Eye site.

“Your Crocodile Has Arrived”

Listen on iTunes

In her first book, she wrote about surviving an accidental marriage to a Maasai warrior in Kenya, coffee made from animal poop in Bali, and a kidnapping in Tunisia. Now she shares the inspiration for her newest memoir: meeting 20-foot earthworms in Australia.

You’ll hear more fascinating tales about “alien spaceship propulsion,” chocolate massages, saving orphaned elephants in Sri Lanka, and, of course, near-extinct giant earthworms.

Laurie gives advice on what to write about, why she hates traveling and what’s on her bucket list. And we’re excited that on October 7th (7pm) at Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA, Laurie will be moderating a panel including Stacey, as well as Lava Mae founder Doniece Sandoval, as part of the launch of “20 Women Changemakers: Taking Action Around the World.”

But don’t worry; she won’t be serving earthworms.

NEW INTERVIEW WITH HOST STACEY GUALANDI!

Stacey just did a BRAND NEW interview for The Women’s Eye Radio with Maggie Doyne, founder of BlinkNow in Surkhet, Nepal and the 2015 CNN Hero of the Year.

We wanted to find out about Maggie’s new activities since we last chatted with her for our book 20 WOMEN CHANGEMAKERS about her groundbreaking children’s home and school in the Kopila Valley. Currently Maggie has 53 children and many more people in her extended family there.

Maggie was in Los Angeles speaking at the Yellow Conference, a unique gathering for women who want to make an impact and work for something bigger than themselves.

And that Maggie did! Traveling to the poverty-stricken valleys of Nepal ten years ago at age 19, she saw a huge need for education, nutrition, shelter and love for the orphans living in this destitute area.

As she approaches the upcoming 10th anniversary of her non-profit BlinkNow in December, she talks to Stacey about what BlinkNow has accomplished, how they keep growing and expanding and the exciting adventures ahead for them.

Her personal news surprised us! You’ll find out all about it when you hear her talk about her life as “chief executive mom” and new book and documentary.

As Maggie says, “In the blink of an eye, we can all make a difference.” Enjoy this chat. She has terrific advice on how you, too, can make a difference.
