The Creative Force Within Us with Survivor and Thriver, Kyra Coates
Kyra Coates was born with a creative force inside of her. CW: Before we get started, I’d like to mention that this episode carries a content warning for trauma and sexual assault. Don’t worry, we don’t go into too much detail, but I wanted to give you a heads up.  Kyra’s early story led to an early adulthood filled with shame and denial. Realization, empowerment, and freedom led Kyra to realise that she is more than her trauma and to embrace her feminine power and sexuality. After a profound spiritual awakening in her early twenties, Kyra became a Hindu nun and lived a disciplined monastic life for three years. When she left her robes behind, she dove into sexual awakening, motherhood, and embracing her feminine strength. Finding her true calling at 35, Kyra returned to the art world professionally in 2014 and expresses her years of spiritual and psychological study through her art and now, her writing. You can find more on Kyra and her work at: https://www.kyracoatesart.com/ Instagram: https://instagram.com/kyra_coates_art_infusegallery?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= (https://instagram.com/kyra_coates_art_infusegallery) ~~~ Subscribe, review and share The Second Chapter- wherever you listen to your favourite podcasts or on podchaser.com - For more, go to thesecondchapterpodcast.com - If you like what we do, buy us a virtual coffee! https://ko-fi.com/thesecondchapter Twitter: @slacklineprodu2, Instagram: @the_second_chapter_podcast, On Facebook and YouTube as Slackline Productions #womenover35 #wearebadass On The Second Chapter, serial careerist and founder of http://slacklineproductions.co.uk/ (Slackline Productions), Kristin Duffy, chats with women who started the second (or third… or fifth!) chapter in their careers and lives, after 35.

It Only Hurts When I Laugh- Doctor/Actor/Comedian, Stefania Licari
Emergency medicine isn’t usually a laughing matter... unless you’re Stefania Licari. Stefania spent years training and excelling through medical school to become a doctor, only to decide to pursue her dream of acting and comedy. Today, this exceptional woman is finding a way to do both -- sometimes with hilarious results. This week, Kristin talks with Stefania about her multi-faceted career, life as an Italian in the UK post-Brexit, what it's (still) like to be a (female) doctor in 2022, and her new solo show, Medico, currently on at the Museum of Comedy in London.

Career, Family, Life & Love After 35, Rebecca Megson-Smith
This week, Kristin is in conversation with Rebecca Megson-Smith. While she doesn't usually think of herself as a romantic (she's been told otherwise on the podcast!) Kristin loved Rebecca’s story of not just finding a career path, but also her real first love, after 35. So, old softie that she is, Kristin thought Rebecca's story was perfect for a Valentine's Day release. Rebecca let fate dictate her life and found herself in a "greasy pole" corporate job and a misguided marriage, never quite knowing how to make the changes that she wasn't even sure she wanted. Now, Rebecca finds herself in a very different situation- fate or not- as a writer, a wife in an unexpected second marriage, a mother and a business owner (amongst other things!) She's also helping other writers find their own writing voice through her fabulous company, Ridley Writes. For more about Rebecca or for writing mentoring and coaching (if you think about whether or not you're a writer, you are!)

Finding Her Own Ground, Part 2 with A'Lelia Bundles
This week concludes Kristin's talk with A'Lelia Bundles and wraps up Season 4 of The Second Chapter! A'Lelia is the great-great-granddaughter of African-American entrepreneur, Madam CJ Walker, whose story was the inspiration for the Netflix series, Self-Made (originally published as On Her Own Ground). A'Lelia's great-grandmother, A'Lelia Walker, was an icon of the Harlem Renaissance. This week, A'Lelia and Kristin discuss race relations in America, what A'Lelia no longer has time for at 69, why Self-Made didn't quite get it right and more. A'Lelia Bundles has spent her life finding her own ground, as an Emmy award-winning network TV news producer and journalist, an author and activist. A'Lelia has written several books about her fascinating family and keeps their legacy alive as founder of the Madam Walker Family Archives and brand historian for MCJW, a line of hair care products inspired by Madam Walker. This year, A’Lelia appeared in the first ever Forbes 50 After 50 Impact list. A'Lelia's latest book, The Joy Goddess of Harlem: A’Lelia Walker and the Harlem Renaissance, will be released in 2022.

She's Got Skin in the Game, Gill Kirk
This week, Kristin combines two of her worlds speaking with Gill Kirk. Despite a "humble Glaswegian working class" background, Gill has walked the halls of Oxford and Parliament. She’s set up her own business, written for corporations, stage and screen, and been a kickass single mum. A perfect The Second Chapter guest indeed! She’s also written Skin in the Game, the dark, hilarious climate-change play Kristin is producing at the New Wimbledon Studio theatre in November.  If Kristin's conversation with Gill whet your appetite for live theatre, you can find the ticket link here: https://www.atgtickets.com/shows/skin-in-the-game/studio-at-new-wimbledon-theatre/ We’re also halfway through a crowdfunder to ensure our cast and creatives can be paid more fairly than fringe theatre ticket sales allows. So if you’d like to support live theatre or just want to let us know that you’re enjoying The Second Chapter, please pledge what you can! https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/skin-in-the-game For more about, or to contact Gill, you can find her at http://www.gillkirk.com/ (www.gillkirk.com) for scripts and http://www.lyric-communications.com/ (www.lyric-communications.com) for the day job that sometimes pays for it! --- Subscribe, review and share The Second Chapter- wherever you listen to your favourite podcasts or on podchaser.com - For more, go to thesecondchapterpodcast.com - If you like what we do, buy us a virtual coffee! https://ko-fi.com/thesecondchapter Twitter: @slacklineprodu2, Instagram: @the_second_chapter_podcast, On Facebook and YouTube as Slackline Productions #womenover35 #wearebadass On The Second Chapter, serial careerist and founder of http://slacklineproductions.co.uk/ (Slackline Productions), Kristin Duffy, chats with women who started the second (or third… or fifth!) chapter in their careers and lives, after 35.

A Potted History- Debbie Page, Ceramist
This week Kristin speaks with Debbie Page. To say Debbie is a potter or a ceramist is an understatement. Despite finding a feel for clay in her early teens, it took her decades to make it her career. Now pots are Debbie’s life! Don’t know what a moon jar is? Just love hearing some really uplifting chat from someone who has found their thing? Either way, you’re in the right place… this is Debbie Page! Debbie Page is a studio potter, based in South Oxfordshire.  She was introduced to the joy of working with clay at school but it took another 20 years before she had the opportunity to really get to grips with the whole world of pottery. She developed an obsession with making teapots, fell in love with Jomon pottery, and spent a lot of time and effort learning to throw on the wheel only to discover, once she’d cracked it, that she prefers hand-building. Completely by chance, she found the pottery love of her life – the Korean Moon Jar, from someone who never made one.
