25% Friends // Episode #41 // Building Community Podcast Round Up

September 28th, 2017 Posted by Podcast, The 25% Friends Podcast 0 thoughts on “25% Friends // Episode #41 // Building Community Podcast Round Up”

On this episode we’re participating in a podcast round up! We’re talking about community, and so are these other four podcasts! We teamed up with the following podcasters to tackle the important topic of community.

Participating podcasts:

Cohesive Home / Melissa and Kate, two laid-back moms, explore the topics you most want to hear about– family minimalism, adventuring with your kids, living by your values, and more– all in the time it takes you to brew your morning coffee. Sometimes ridiculous, always on point, the Cohesive Home podcast puts the fun back in parenting and creating your happier, simpler home.

Girl Next Door / Listening to The Girl Next Door Podcast is like catching up with girl friends over a cup of coffee or a cocktail. Former next door neighbors Erica and Kelsey invite you to join them for candid, hilarious conversations about raising a family, marriage, living with intention, pursuing creativity, and building community.

Minimalist Moms / Minimalist Moms is a bi-weekly conversation between two minimalist-living moms, Megan Ericson and Diane Boden. Our goal is to inspire you to think more and do with less.

Friendlier / It’s like eavesdropping on a phone call between Sarah and Abby, long time friends—and now parents—who love to talk, read, and eat. Every episode they review books, share recipes, and explore a sometimes random/sometimes serious topic.

We chatted about:

+Belonging and fitting in.

+Brene Brown’s new book, Braving the Wilderness.

+Feeling left out, feeling different.

+Finding where you belong.
