Episode 7 – Romy Nelson Interview

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Romy Nelson is a nutritionist, media consultant and author, specializing in corporate consulting. She educates audiences on many health and wellness topics including nutrition, fitness, and the importance of balancing the body, mind and soul to achieve optimal health and wellness. Her book, Be Lean: How to Get the Body You Love and Love the Body You Have, was written to guide readers towards achieving peace with their bodies through positive affirmations, proper nutrition, and natural health.

A certified personal trainer, Romy performed in eight amateur fitness/bodybuilding competitions between 1996 and 2005. Before making a career change to take her message to adults, she served for almost a decade as a full-time health teacher and coach in the Phoenix-area. Romy realized to effectively impact the quality of children’s lives, it is essential to educate and motivate adults on how to implement healthy lifestyle choices.

Romy holds a Masters Degree in Education, as well as an AAS Degree in Dietetic Technology. She is a DTR (Dietetic Technician, Registered) and a member of the American and Arizona Dietetic Associations. Romy is the Arizona Dietetic Technician, Registered of the Year 2009, and adjunct nutrition faculty at two Arizona community colleges.

Episode 3 – Live From Balticon!

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

Recorded live on May 30, 2010 the panel included Mur Lafferty, Christiana Ellis, J.R. Blackwell and Philippa Ballantine. These are all highly creative and prolific female writers that have utilized new media in one way or another to share their works. We discuss a myriad of topics, and have great audience participation as well.

My apologies for the audio quality. The recording we received from the Balticon staff was only 2 minutes long, so this post is actually from our H4N. Yay for backup plans! My Boy Friday (Chooch) diligently worked his magic to improve the quality as much as possible, and he has my thanks for his efforts.

This episode is marked explicit due to infrequent profanity and brief discussion of erotica.

There is no promo, because the authors themselves reference countless tantalizing books and podcasts for your enjoyment.

As always, you can leave feedback here at this site, send an email to GirlsRulesPodcast@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at(717) 347-8537 or 7173-GRULES.

Theme music is by Emma’s Mini, found on Magnatune.com.

As a reminder, the views you will hear are the views and opinions of the panelists. We do not claim to be professionals, and we do not speak for anyone other than ourselves. Rawr.

This episode I’m joined in the recording burrow by Jett Micheyl and M.A. in the Pa., and we have a few of the best female voices of podcasting join us via Skype to discuss various issues in the podcast world including voice acting, podcast production, and sexuality.

Martha Holloway of Dancing Cat Studios, The Balticon Podcast, and the now retired A.D.D. Cast. You can find her on twitter at @ljosalf. Along with her husband Paul Fischer, their Dancing Cat Studios has produced Ronnie Blackwell’s “Serve it Cold” available at Podiobooks.comLorne Epstein’s “You’re Hired”, available at Podiobooks.com, and assisted in production for Forever Fifteen by Kimberly Steel.  This female force of nature has also done voice work for various podcast novels, and can most recently be found in Voices of Babylon’s Three Edged Sword which is set in the Babylon 5 universe.

Episode 1 – Introducing M.A. and Jett

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Get to know my Core Girls, Jett Micheyl and M.A. in PA. This is not a topic show, but rather a chance for us to record together before we add more voices on the next episode. We talk about shared interests, our other projects and we go on a bit long about MMO gaming since it’s something we all dearly love.

Also, I ask for input from any males that may be listening as well as anyone that played Star Trek Online during the Borg attack on the last day of beta testing.
