Episode 4: Collective Son Son

This week feels like two great shows in one — the first 30 minutes is a road trip of weekly goals; the second 30 minutes is a true talk corner about radically loving yourself, being an intentional friend and making it through the tough times plus the sweet times with your Creative Circle of Support. Who’s in your Creative Circle of Support?


One Dreamy Brother

dream podcast tavinda media

Dreams, the stories our brains tell us when we are a captive sleeping audience, can be haunting, hilarious, disturbing, terrifying, arousing, satisfying or just plain weird. Do dreams hold suppressed truths or cryptic messages from beyond? Or are they just flashes of memories dancing their way across our mind’s stage and into our brain’s nightly trash bin?

Today, I’m going to tell you how one boy’s dreams nearly got him killed and how other people’s dreams brought him back to life.

One Dreamy Brother and the cello accompaniment are written and produced by Octavia Reese for Tavinda Media.

In Episode 3, Nan and Octavia introduce a much-needed sound upgrade, talk about their top ten Stalled episodes, reveal the mother of magic and discuss how to keep writing in the face of rejection.

Dream – Premiers Sept 24 2018

Do you dream? Some say dreams are a series of random brain signals that turn into images and sensations in our minds. Others claim our suppressed urges and desires boldly rise to the surface when we’re unconscious. And some are confident dreams are simply the trash compactor of our unneeded memories; the nightly clear browsing data routine of our brains. But ages ago, people believed dreams were a link to the supernatural – a gateway of information between spirits and the living world. Are dreams premonitions and messages from beyond? Or are they meaningless memory data overflow? Join Octavia Reese for Dream, a podcast about the stories our brains tell us when we are a sleeping captive audience.

Dream premiers Monday September 24. Look for it on iTunes or where you find your podcasts.

Dear Perfectionists… — Octavia Reese

I’m fortunate to belong to a sister-fren-hood of writers. We are each other’s go-to idea banks for all-hours sounding boards; ever-ready moralers for milestone celebrations and we are reality-checks for middle-of-the-night visits from The Ghost of Low Self-Esteem and her evil hench-spirit, The You’re Not Good Enough Imp. I was just talking to my sister […]
