With more and more people staying locked inside their homes these days, something interesting is happening. There’s a rise of digital content that is being created across all these social media platforms, be it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch...you get the picture.

People need an outlet to connect to the world. Some have been creating content for as a while.

Today’s guest is a rising star in the world of ASMR who currently mainly broadcasts on Twitch and has already amassed over 26 thousand followers on that platform, and more than 14,000 on Instagram. Nina Swan joins us on today’s episode.

You can’t turn the corner without hearing about it, instilling fear and concern over anyone that hears its name — The coronavirus, or COVID-19 as public health officials call it. COVID-19 is responsible for thousands of deaths in China where the virus originated, and around the world, with the elderly and those with underlying health issues mostly at risk.

As the pandemic continues to spread, with growing numbers in the U.S., more and more employers are telling their domestic workers to stay home. On Friday, President Trump declared a national emergency over the coronavirus outbreak.

Now, it’s important to note that a heck of a lot of people that have been diagnosed with coronavirus have made a full recovery.

By no means do we have experts on the coronavirus on this show today but any factual information we quote will be from the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which you can visit for more information on COVID-19 at CDC.gov.

My guests today work in two different fields at this time and like many of us, myself included, have been directly impacted by the coronavirus fears blanketing America, particularly in Southern California. Claire is an Assignment Editor with CBS/KCAL in Los Angeles, and Kateri Wozni is a freelance reporter and Senior Technical Writer. We sit down and have an honest conversation and hopefully some comical relief that is badly needed in such turbulent times.

"Never knowing what’s we could get ourselves into gives us the adrenaline we need, we’ve been shot at, chased by gang members, and threatened with our lives, but we still have to document what goes on down there." These words from my guest today, Howard Raishbrook.

Howard runs the famed RMG News stringer service out of Los Angeles with his two brothers Austin and Marc.

RMG News supplies TV News stations in LA and around the globe with high-octane breaking news footage on a daily basis. With over 10 years of being in the news stringer business, Howard is constantly navigating the dangerous, unimaginable, miserable core of human suffering to expose such incredible images to the world, and in it, perhaps giving the world a hard look at itself that it needs to find the light.

"When I imagined what my 20s would look like, I pictured movie-worthy moments from Sex in the City and Friends. I realized life actually turns out to be more like a blooper reel...cue horrible dates, fake friends, and scary bosses."

Those words are from my guest today, digital content creator and host/creator of From Here to Where, a podcast aimed at empowering women everywhere, Sarah Trott.

This Southern California native began her career in journalism while still attending school but life had a cruel twist that threatened to derail her dreams and forced her to reassess what’s more important in life. This is her story...

We all get them, some sooner than others, and it usually makes us feel good -- I'm talking about getting a haircut. The barber or hairstylist is sometimes underrated but if you really think about it, they're there for most milestones in our life.

I visited Jackie over at The Barbershop at The Collection at Riverpark in Oxnard, California and got into a philosophical conversation about the importance of the barber and the significant impact they have in communities.

The Barbershop has a location in Santa Barbara and Oxnard.

Life as an actor is never easy...unless you hit it big. You must have a thick skin for all of the rejection that coming. But life as an actor is also rewarding in more ways than one. Jesus Lloveras is an emerging actor attached to so many great projects -- most recently, Netflix's popular crime drama "Money Heist."

Jesus opens up about life as an actor, the pros, the cons, the long flights from project to project. It's a glimpse into something many of us wish we could do but very few of us are willing to stick it out. So stick around, today's guest might just leave you with a few words of wisdom that you can apply to life in whatever you do.

Note: The first half of this episode is our interview in English. The second half is our interview in Spanish for the international audience. Jesus, after all, is a gem coming to us from Spain. Enjoy.

I think we're all guilty of collecting things until we have no more room to store them at our homes, or things that no longer may serve a purpose, but you don't know what to do, how to declutter, how to get things organized and find that perfect balance in life again with your special possessions. Elva Fonseca from Sensational Organizing, a professional organizer, is here to help.
