Stacy Connects…with Stacy Heller
56 minutes | Jul 6, 2022
Stacy shares the fun she’s had while at the lake house from riding e-bikes to reading trashy novels which is where the inspiration for this week’s STACYISM came from. It also serves as a great lead-in to guest, Dan Faulkner. Not only is Dan an established and well-reputed Eastside real estate agent with Compass, but he is also 20 years sober. In both his professional and personal lives, Dan strives to be present, transparent and of service. Stacy asks Dan about his story of addiction and recovery, whether he thinks mental health is at the root of addiction and how society sends messages of needing to be stoic and unfeeling to boys and young men; thus, generations of men who don’t “feel.” To connect with Dan, go to https://www.compass.com/agents/dan-faulkner-jr/.

This is the Voice!
Stacy shares a STACYISM that speaks to her own experiences and her thoughts about the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade. Fear not, it’s not all serious on this episode of STACY CONNECTS, Stacy welcomes voice actor Aaron Deines to the program. During the pandemic, Aaron combined several personal and professional goals to create a career and lifestyle that prior to the pandemic he maybe wouldn’t have dared “voice” a desire to pursue. His work started with a lot of training, it requires vocal gymnastics and self-care, demands he understand his character’s motivation so he can connect authentically, and allowed him to get a cool recording booth that’s all tricked out for optimal sound. An interesting conversation about a talent we take for granted. Check out Aaron Deines at https://www.aarondeines.com/

Americana’s Audible Orator with Bucky Halker
During her Brain Dump Stacy shares what she’s learned from wedding planning for friends (spoiler: do what feels right, not what “is right”) and wonders aloud about adult kids and how much to intervene when it comes to holidays like Father’s Day. She welcomes Bucky Halker to program; a singer, songwriter, music historian, and labor activist whose focus is primarily Americana, or American Folk music. Bucky shares a bit about how he came to music in general and Americana specifically, his influences and inspiration, and the still current commentary of music giants like Woody Gutherie. Bucky is a musician with the pure heart of a historian; keeping the music and stories alive of the everyday people that made America.

Stuck in the Car with Stacy
Stacy’s shares what’s she’s learned about the call to action that is “Subscribe! Rate! Comment!” so many podcasters use, and why. Her brain dump is the usual eclectic mixed bag of topics. Her Stacy-ism, inspired by her scheduled guest, is about making choices you’re comfortable with when you decide you’re ready to have sex the first time. This leads to a litany of Stacy-isms that are reminiscent of car rides with her kids; conversations that are actually lectures. She ends with a review of Top Gun and Hustle before limping off into the sunset (until next time).

A Legacy of Hope and A Side of Slaw.
Stacy’s brain dump is especially manic this week since she’s still trying to recover from Covid-brain. For her Stacyism she offers her thoughts on what staying silent says, which is also the exact moment it‘s clear she needs to leave psychiatry to the experts. It’s no coincidence then that her guest is Dr. Richard Adler, a forensic and clinical psychiatrist. The conversation starts with their meet-cute, and touches on their shared love of NY and deli. At the heart of their conversation though is Dr. Adler’s mission of providing resources to those suffering from PTSD; a dream that led to his founding the PTSD Institute in Seattle in 2018; a dream that is slowly and steadily becoming realized. To learn more about Dr. Adler, his practice and the PTSD Institute, go to www.fcpsych.com.

3L: Third Layer Living
After spending the past week visiting her old stomping grounds in CT for her daughter Grace’s graduation, Stacy calls in from PA where she’s visiting her mother. Unsurprisingly Joan attempts to interrupt the show a few times but can’t distract Stacy from chatting with Theresa DeLappe of Third Layer Living. After tending to home, kids and her husband for years, Teresa decided it was past time to explore her third layer, which in her case is at the intersection of style and sustainability. Using her creativity, entrepreneurial spirit and sense of adventure Teresa founded Third Layer Living; she continues to peel back and share this most personal layer yet. I’m excited for what’s underneath! To learn more about Teresa and Third Layer Living check her out on social at @thirdlayerliving.
