Another instrumental break to cap off a wonderful round of interviews. Let this be an important reminder to take time for yourself every now and then, whatever that looks like for you. This is another wonderful experience I get to have each week, the fact that I get to have this platform and opportunity to conversate with some of my favorite local artists, and then also on top of that meeting new individuals while on the search for music discovery. Sometimes schedules can be more complex and that’s when an impactful change from the usual flow can be beneficial for everyone. I hope that these 2 hour instrumental sessions are just as pleasurable as the episodes that feature guests and delightful conversation. These breaks also allow me to practice my sexy radio voice, which I will not compromise on! Featuring music from Yoki, Scumlord, Dogfuck, Bstfrnd, Dignan, ScoopKid, Cashby, Ohbliv, Clwdwlkr, Help! I’m Stuck in the Computer!, Charles Benjamin, Archangel, Sofia Lakis, UNCKLE, and many more. Big love from Big Splash!

On today’s episode I got to connect with Pockets, a dear friend who I haven’t actually been in the same room with physically since before the pandemic started. We talked about the very exciting release of their new EP “Medium Dream”, a mostly pop offering that explodes with a wave of synth, guitar, heavy dusty programmed drums (which we love so much), and the sweet sweet sounds of Pockets’ voice. Many laughs to be had this episode as well as major bops per usual.

Women & Politics presents:

Welcome to Women and Politics. Today we are talking about the General Assembly session, some bills coming through and the state of our mental health. Joining us for the first half of the show is Senator Jennifer McClellan and Delegate Marcia Price. We return at 12:30 with a local leader in mental health and art therapy talking about supporting our youth and ourselves through the pandemic.

 

Senator Jennifer McClellan

Senator McClellan serves as the Virginia State Senator from the 9th district since 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, her district is located in the Greater Richmond Region. McClellan was previously elected to the Virginia House of Delegates from 2006 to 2017, representing the 71st district. She is also a former president of the Virginia Young Democrats, vice-chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia and a current member of the Democratic National Committee (DNC)

 

Delegate Marcia Price

Delegate Price, affectionately known as “Cia”, was born and raised on the Peninsula.  She graduated from Warwick High School in the Peninsula’s first graduating class of the International Baccalaureate Program, receiving the full IB Diploma and Advanced Studies Diploma (1998). Del. Price attended Spelman College and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, with intensive study in Biology (2002). She also received her Master of Arts in Religious Studies from Howard University (2005).  After having completed some coursework toward her Master of Divinity Degree at Howard University (2011-2013), she is now working to finish her MDiv the School of Theology at Virginia Union University. With each program, she focuses on learning as much as she can in order to make a positive difference.

In September 2016, as a project of New Virginia Majority, she worked to start the Virginia Black Leadership Organizing Collaborative (VA BLOC), a non-profit focused on “building empowered communities” through integrated voter engagement, civic involvement, and leadership development, where she serves as Director.

 

Leila Saadeh

Leila is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia and is a Registered and Board Certified Art Therapist. She has worked with all ages, ranging from adults and geriatrics with mood disorders, trauma, psychosis, and dementia to children with severe trauma and attachment disorders, mood disorders, anxiety, and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Leila has five years of inpatient psychiatric experience with both children and adults, and has been able to use her knowledge to reach a variety of needs. Her previous work experiences, training, and skills allow her to see people as unique individuals and to meet them wherever they are in the moment to best serve her clients.

Leila utilizes her art therapy skills to assess, diagnose, and treat, while highlighting strengths and resiliency. Art therapy can be an alternate and beneficial approach, especially with those who may have trouble verbally expressing their internal world. The art can become a way to externalize, providing a safe and cathartic modality to express oneself, regardless of any artistic talent. Leila’s therapeutic approach is eclectic and may range from mindfulness techniques to cognitive-behavioral therapy based on client needs. Leila is able to provide art therapy services to clients of all ages. Her specialty is serving children with ASD, specifically early intervention, through an integration of ABA and art therapy, as well as children exposed to trauma through her unique trauma-informed approach to art therapy.

Leila is the Past President of the Virginia Art Therapy Association and has spent the past six years being a strong advocate and representative of art therapy throughout Richmond. She was recently (September 2020) appointed by the Virginia Governor to be on the first-ever Advisory Board of Art Therapy for the State of Virginia. Her bright personality allows her to connect with people with ease and she has been awarded for her service as a mental health professional and art therapist.

Women & Politics presents:

Welcome to the New Year of Women and Community Politics. We are starting out with uplifting the voices of rural Virginia. Joining us today are:

Finale Johnson Norton

 

Finale Johnson Norton was born and raised in Exmore, on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. She will be a tireless advocate for working families in the General Assembly because her own family had to work hard to make ends meet. Her mom cleaned homes before earning her cosmetology license later in life, and her father shucked clams and laid ground cable. In the hard times that followed her father’s death in a truck accident when Finale was in eighth grade, Social Security helped her family get through. Through high school, Finale worked various jobs before and after school to make ends meet. Thanks to Virginia public schools, Finale had a chance to further her education. After graduating from Northampton High School, she attended Hampton University and earned her Bachelor of Science degree.

For the next 20 years as a Navy wife and businesswoman, she resided in Norfolk, remaining close to her family members in Norfolk and on the Eastern Shore. Finale began working at Bank of America (FKA) Sovran Bank in 1988. Always advocating for inclusion and equity, she served on Bank of America’s Diversity Council and was an executive sponsor for the company’s Lead for Women initiative and LGBTQ initiative. During her 26-year tenure at Bank of America, Finale worked her way up to becoming an executive responsible for more than 3,500 employees. She then worked at a global consulting company before retiring from corporate America. She has since moved back home to the Eastern Shore to be closer to her family.

Over the years, Finale has given back to the community through United Way campaigns, a Junior Achievement mentorship, Habitat for Humanity builds, the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, March of Dimes fundraising, and the Urban League

Lynlee Thorne

Lynlee Thorne lives in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley on a small farm with her 2 young children and a menagerie of livestock. She has served as Chair of her local Democratic committee and as campaign staff for multiple local and statewide campaigns over that last 5 years, including multiple statewide coordinated campaigns and local races. Both farming and being a rural Democrat require a long-term commitment to hard work, perseverance, and cultivation of resilient communities, which Lynlee brings to her work with Rural GroundGame.

Talked about the acknowledgement and existence of supernatural beings and experiences. Listen through to find out about her favorite member of Three 6 Mafia and her creative process. There’s even some talk about the multiverse and fighting our clones! Next week is Dogfriend, “friend” spelled F-U-Q. REAL SPLASHY!

Women & Politics presents:

For the next 6 weeks, Women & Politics is on a break and sharing our platform with Ebony Guy and her Racial Essays podcasts and interview series. You can find them at: https://richmondracialequityessays.com/podcast

In this podcast, urban planner and diversity, equity and inclusion consultant Ebony Walden talks with 15 Richmonders from all walks of life and sectors to explore their visions for an equitable Richmond, especially as it relates to racial equity, and the strategies that will help us get there. We hope this can be a model for discussion in other U.S. cities.

 

Today we listen to Episode 6: Historians Free Bangura of Untold RVA and The Valentine’s Bill Martin, share their vision for how telling the story of history truthfully can spark innovation and long-term change. Advancing equity includes truth-telling, knowing our own story and broadening the voices that highlight our past and shape our future.

 

The Second half of the show Activist and urban farmer Duron Chavis chats with Kim Young, Director of Family & Community Engagement of Peter Paul Development Center, on increasing the visibility, eliminating barriers to the dreams and aspirations of, and creating pathways of opportunity for Black youth.

 

Ebony Walden is the Founder and Principal Consultant at Ebony Walden Consulting (EWC), an urban strategy firm based in Richmond, Virginia. At EWC, she works with a wide range of organizations to design and facilitate meetings, training, strategic plans, and community engagement processes that explore race, equity, and the creation of more just and inclusive communities. Before founding EWC, Ebony worked in local government and for non-profit organizations dedicated to citywide and neighborhood-level revitalization. Currently, Ebony is an adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University where she teaches Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the City. Ebony’s work has been featured in  The HillRichmond Times-Dispatch and The Nature of Cities. She holds a Masters in Urban and Environmental Planning from the University of Virginia and a Bachelors in Business Administration from Georgetown University. Inspired by The Just City Essays, Ebony Walden conceived the idea of an essay collection focused on Richmond (The Richmond Racial Equity Essays) in hopes of bringing together thought leadership and practice to advance racial equity in the region.
