Show Notes

The six women discuss feedback they’ve received from episode one through five based on their discussions of “Women Who Run with the Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. They also call themselves out on times they were insensitive and speak about their privilege.  Between laughing at their own mothers’ responses to the podcast, debating suggestions of the male version of “Women Who Run with the Wolves”, diving deep into the self help industry and trying to answer whether we need to fix ourselves, they are honest about their views and their lives. They ultimately discover how important storytelling is in all environments.

In this episode, they go into some specifics on why the book had a big impact on some of the members and why others struggled to get through the first few chapters.  Sarah and Kara share the stories in the book that they each found most meaningful and note elements of their personal history and personality that more than likely is what drove them to enjoy the book so much.
