Strategies for Sanity: Her Quarantine Catch-Up

It's been a while since Christie & Izzy had an honest catch-up on their experiences in quarantine.   As we all struggle to create new routines in our lives, we reflect on the shape our days have started to take.  Plus - Christie describes a run-in with the police, Izzy still remembers how to do basic arithmetic, and both Capricorns are walking a fine line with their neighbors.

Strategies for Sanity: Her Shelter ft. Meaghan Whyte

Introducing a special series from the From Where She Sits podcast - Strategies for Sanity.  

It's become clear over the past couple of weeks that we're coming to grips with a "new normal."  Christie + Izzy are interviewing guests who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis who can help shed some light (and maybe even some hope!) on the questions we're all having during this unprecedented time.

This week:  With over 10 million Americans now unemployed, many New Yorkers are wondering how they will make rent.  We're interviewing Meaghan Whyte, a nonprofit housing attorney here in NY, about rent strikes, public benefits, landlord communication, and more! Meg is a staff attorney at Mobilization for Justice, a civil legal services nonprofit in NYC.  At MFJ, she represents tenants in Housing, Supreme, and Federal Court in both defensive and affirmative litigation.  She is a fellow Capricorn, a self-loathing Mets fan, and a connoisseur of trashy British reality television.

Time Capsule: Her Comfort

As our collective anxieties escalate, Christie and Izzy are taking a minute to do an honest check-in.  Comfort is becoming increasingly difficult to find & hone - so instead of self-care, maybe this is a moment of self-preservation, of mutual understanding, and of imperfection.  If you need to give yourself 20 minutes to feel - this episode is for you.  

Sending all of our listeners peace & good health 🦋

Time Capsule: Her Anxiety

It's been a crazy week.  As we all try to come to terms with the "new normal" that is COVID-19, we thought we'd take a moment to discuss our collective anxiety in this moment.  No - this isn't another panic-inducing rant to stay inside.  We're earnestly discussing how to manage expectations, disappointment, fear, and - you guessed it - anxiety in this week's Time Capsule episode.

If you or a loved one are struggling for any reason during this time - please shoot us an email:  fromwhereshesits@gmail.com. We will do our best to help coordinate relief.

Time Capsule: Her Faith

Two years after Christie + Izzy released the "Her Faith" episode, your favorite soul sitters have done almost a complete 180 with their spiritual beliefs.  Is Christie still finding comfort in mediums?  Does Izzy believe in an afterlife?  And a special bonus question in honor of the late James Lipton (Inside the Actors Studio): If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

Her Patience

"Patience is a virtue"... or so we thought.  What's the difference between some well-timed deep breaths and laying down and becoming a complete doormat?  In their season 2 season finale episode, Christie + Izzy reflect on moments that have challenged their patience.

Her Siblings

If you have siblings, you probably know that the relationship between siblings is arguably one of the most significant bonds you'll share over the course of your lifetime.  Our siblings are in it for the long haul with us - through the good times and the bad, from Raggedy Ann dolls and dinner table meltdowns to financiers and tech wizzes and beyond, we feel so lucky to call our siblings family.
