Featuring: Shelly Johnson
Shelly was born and raised in the Mormon church, like all good Mormons, she married young and bred fast, having seven wonderful children to ensure she would get into Heaven and please her Mormon family.
Not long after the birth of her seventh child, Shelly had a breakdown. She left the church, coming out of the closet and divorcing her husband. Now she’s doing her best trying to figure out life and heal from the trauma.
This episode is a raw account of Shelly’s journey of liberation and awakening, as she undoes the shackles of conditioning, moves through guilt and experiences a full life for the first time in 40 years.
Shelly shares how she thought her depression and anxiety was a sign that she was a sinner, it wasn’t until her partner Mary assured her that everything was going to be alright that she no longer had to pretend and life responded in the form of a gentle breeze on her shoulder.
Together we explore her family's response to her coming out as a lesbian and the incredible difference she is making in the lives of others as she and Mary host the insightful, funny and downright honest podcast called Latter Day Lesbian.

Imagine planning out your day, fully expecting to be home for dinner only to end up in a jail cell with a stranger. Having found yourself convicted of a crime.
My guest on this episode doesn’t have to imagine that situation, as it’s exactly what happened to him. Chris was used to the high life, rubbing shoulders with US presidents, CIA operatives and the wealthy. He earned large sums of money doing what came naturally to him as one of Australia’s top 5 speakers. His success as a professional speaker allowed him to live the high life, fancy restaurants, beautiful homes, first class travel and accommodation wherever he went. But that all changed in June 2010.
During this episode I chat with Chris about his experience in prison, he shares incredible insights on how you can build resilience in your own life along with ideas on how to build trusting relationships. We also discuss the “disease of greed” that inflicted him and continues to plague society as people continue risk everything in the search for unimaginable riches. Chris shares how he survived for seven and a half years in several high security prisons by using the same motivational skills and relationship building capabilities that had placed him at the highest level in the professional speaking industry. Chris’s encounters in prison are both inspirational and saddening yet you will notice how he was always able to look on the optimistic side of the challenges that arose, taking the “hit” as a “gift”.

Despite concern and greater awareness about domestic violence, it’s still happening, and with only 16% of women who experience violence contacting an agency such as a shelter, crisis centre or hotline, counsellor or women’s centre for help, we may never really know the how wide spread the issue is.
In this extraordinary episode I speak with Anita Bentata, an escapee of domestic violence. Anita’s story has been documented in her book “The Wolf in a Suit”.
During this episode Anita shares incredible insights from the children’s fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood” and it’s easy to see the parallels of the fairy tale with her own journey, Anita is Little Red Riding Hood, standing at the edge of the woods, being caught by The Wolf (only he’s wearing a suit), and finally escaping with her two little girls.
This episode is one of hope, courage and full of insights as Anita shares how we can all access far more than we know, and how when faced with mixed messages from a partner we end up confused, leading to inaction, possibly the reason why some women stay much longer than they should. Anita has turned her experiences into a mission to help women, she went on to study Human Behavior and became a psychotherapist and counsellor. Anita now helps women to develop their emotional muscle to speak about the unknown and the uncomfortable, she is well versed in all the unspoken myths about love, stress and relationships.
