Our guest Dana Bowman, in her new book, How to Be Perfect Like Me, discusses the lure of perfectionism, trying to be a flawless wife, mother, and person in recovery. In this funny and revealing follow-up to her best-selling book Bottled, Dana reflects on how we live in a society of excess, always pushing ourselves to do and be better. However, it doesn’t take her long to realize that self-care and getting over herself is the key to happiness.

Our guest Ellen Van Vechten is an attorney turned drug and alcohol counselor. She examines the chaos many families endure when addiction disrupts their lives. Based in part on her own family’s journey, Van Vechten explains the science of addiction, the theory of treatment, and the Twelve-Step model of recovery, providing sensible information and tips for reasoned action in support of a loved one while fostering personal growth and recovery.

  Emma Garrard, nordic coach for the Park City Ski and Snowboard Nordic team, joins the show to encourage juniors from 9-15 to join the junior division of the REd Bull 400, in a smaller endeavor called the Park City 200.

Dr. Davidson also talks about a holistic approach to stem cell therapy and several other agents like hyaluronic acid and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to heal injuries. 

Mara Altman wants to destigmatize everything weird, gross, and just downright unlucky that happens to women’s bodies. And to destigmatize, you have to talk about it … or in this case write a book about it and go on a book tour. From unwanted facial hair, to the myriad shapes and sizes of breasts to overly sweaty armpits, Mara is hilarious, downright frank, and I have to say, really refreshing.  Her book is Gross Anatomy. 

 

Chad Brackelsberg, Executive Director of the Utah Avalanche Center, joins Tim and Lynn to highlight the 25th annual Black Diamond fundraiser on September 13, to talk about what the Center is working on for education of backcountry enthusiasts, and a new video that underscores the importance of knowing before you go.
