Today’s show marks the second in our series, OUR BODIES, OURSELVES, where we explore the connection between what we want from life, and how to get it in the bodies we live in. What kinds of impressions do we want to make on a date, and what’s most important about how a date presents themselves to us off the bat? How do we think we’re presenting our best selves, and what might the reality look like from the other side of the table?

We discuss what these questions mean to us personally and then are joined by Kim Dower, the owner of the literary publicity company Kim-From-LA. Kim shares what she’s learned from coaching clients into presenting themselves to the public, and what we might not understand about how others see us. She gives her top tips for getting our best selves out there, and where she wishes we would cut ourselves some slack.

Our Spring/Summer Theme Song is Josh Dion‘s GIVE LOVE! We both fell hard for Josh‘s insane drumming skills and deliciously expressive vocals (smooth like honey, ladies, and then wild and raucous as hell) way back when we first moved to NYC, dancing our hearts out to the Josh Dion Band all over town. Now he performs all over NYC (and in residency at Rockwood Music Hall) as Paris Monster. Find, chat, listen, and buy on Twitter and iTunes.
