On Episode 221 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Tesi and Leslie sit down with Justine Nobbe, the co-founder of the Adventure Mamas Initiative and all-around Mama Bear. The co-hosts couldn’t wait to talk to Justine after a listener wrote in and said this: “The organization [Adventure Mamas] is hell-bent on seeing mamas take the time to take care of themselves and to find a strength they didn’t know they had among a group of supportive and badass women. Justine is our brave warrior leading with intention, authenticity, KINDNESS, and verve. I admire her work, her family, and her badass survival skills.” Justine lived up to every work of this high praise…and more! Listen in as the three women discuss adventure and motherhood, maternal wellness, emotional health, why movement matters and intersectional inclusion in a male-dominated space. It’s an uplifiting conversation, friends. Listen in! (For complete Show Notes, visit the Mama Bear Dares website.)
On Episode 220 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, co-hosts Leslie and Tesi drop back in with Tatum Drewes to talk about health, healing, and helping. Not only is Tatum an inspiring woman, pioneer, and business owner who believes in helping others live their best, pain-free life, but she's also an expert in CBD oil and the medicinal properties of the hemp plant. Tatum owns Higher Healing and is generous in sharing her passion and knowledge as the hosts learn more about this natural healing phenomenon and how much it can benefit women across a country in the midst of an opioid drug crisis.

On Episode 219 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Tesi and Leslie sit down with Ashley Asti, a woman who is using her Mama Bear to form relationships with men and women incarcerated in our country. Ashley became a pen-pal to over 30 prisoners and extends her spirit and care as someone who teaches and encourages women in prison to put pen to paper and express themselves through writing. The women discuss mass incarceration, Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy, the lost art of letter writing, and poetry as activism. Ashley is a powerhouse of love and compassion and her intentionality and thoughtfulness extends into her skincare line as well, which is also discussed on the podcast.

On Episode 218 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Tesi and Leslie settle in for a discussion about slowing down and savoring life, even in the midst of the school’s end, summer’s arrival, and the never-ending spectacle of the White House. Lunch, really, is a metaphor for political activism, a fight against the patriarchy, and self-care. The women remind listeners to take a step back the perfection demanded of women by society and instead embrace their true nature during this season, whatever it may be. The sisters/co-hosts end the episode with an impassioned OBSESS SESH, during which they discuss books, television, recipes, clothing, and a questionable DIY health remedy.
