Episode 159 – Dr Vanessa Garcia

Season and Erica are thrilled to welcome their first guest to the podcast in over a year! Dr Vanessa Garcia is a local optometrist who has been practicing in Northern Nevada for nearly six years. She sees patients of all ages, but is particularly passionate about her pediatric patients. She was introduced to the world of optometry at a very young age and was wearing very strong prescription glasses by the time she was three – so she’s been in their shoes! She joined Season and Erica to discuss the importance of early and subsequently, yearly, eye exams for children, what to expect at a pediatric eye exam and her involvement in the IntantSEE ( program. As Dr Garcia is also a mother, the three discuss motherhood in the pandemic and how fast all of their babies have grown up. This is an incredibly educational episode so enjoy!

Episode 158 – How did we do that?!

In this episode, Season and Erica look back on their schedules pre-pandemic and reflect on how they made it all possible. They talk about how fulfilling their teaching positions were and the “emptiness” that has come since moving everything online or not even teaching at all. This year has been challenging for Erica to find the perfect amount of engagement while seeing her students on a screen or not at all. The two also discuss juggling multiple jobs and how one usually overpowers the other which leads to guilt and disappointment – ON TOP OF BEING A MOM! They close with their highs and lows to give you some real time updates on their (and their kids’) lives.

Episode 157 – Body image

In this episode, Season and Erica meet in public for the first time in over a year! Erica laments the traffic on the way out to Spanish Springs which leads them into a discussion about the changes in the Reno/Sparks area and what they remember it being like years ago when they started college. They somehow start talking about the fitness challenge that we were all subject to as children (f*** you, sit and reach!) which then leads into a long, vulnerable discussion about body image.
