In this Episode: 

When Annie was training as a birth doula, she had very strong emotional reactions to some births, which made her look into her own. She talks with The Bartender about how the way we come into this world matters.

Oh, and she also tells a story about the time she, for her job, mediated a fight between roommates over a thermostat.

And huge thanks to The Black Guy Who Tips Podcast! Listen to them!

About the Guest:

Annie Levin is an attorney and birth doula living in Brooklyn, NY. She currently serves as a curator for The Emergence Network, a collective that poses the question, “What if the way we respond to crisis is part of the crisis?” and seeks to create spaces to explore various forms of activism and engagement.  She also hosts Precipice, a bi-monthly radio show that invites open conversation about the troubles of our times. A nature lover making it work in the big city, Annie can often be found hanging with the ducks in Prospect Park, or down at Coney Island swimming in the Atlantic Ocean.

Here she is, glowing, loving, being awesome:
