A Podcast

Balance Shared is the idea that we are all better together. This podcast is a place to share those stories. I’m your host, Michelle Lasley. I interview mxn and womxn who are working on their own magic, healing their world one at a time so that we can all live in a better world tomorrow.

Michelle Lasley

I hold a vision for a world where we have enough (food, shelter, clothing, clean air, clean soil, clean water, love). To get there, we need to embrace kindness and love, now, assuming good intent while protecting our necessary boundaries. And, we will laugh all the way there.

This podcast is where I can share that vision and explore the stories of other people who also share that vision.
