Cultures, Relationships, Writing and Travelling with Rachanee Lumayno

Cultures, Relationships, Writing and Travelling with Rachanee Lumayno
In this episode Robin talks about multi-cultural relationships, funny travel stories and being a creative with Rachanee. She is a writer, podcaster, musician and so much more! About Rachanee:  I was born on a snowy day in Michigan (I'm just guessing, but since it was winter, it's a pretty good guess). I loved playing let's pretend and creating things; at my 4th grade birthday party I wrote a play and made all my friends participate in it. (No performance = no cake.) I pursued a degree in photojournalism but detoured  into a music career. Four albums, over 1000 shows, many car miles and a few awards later, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in... acting and writing. (You thought I was going to say music, weren't you?) While comedy is my main thing, I also do voice-overs, TV and film. Some of my favorite projects include playing a harried employee on Stevie TV; being a delusional girlfriend in a Matthew Hussey video; helping people navigate their Google Pixel 4 in an explained video series; and voicing the character of Yu Yan in Swan Princess 10: A Royal Wedding. My journalism roots run deep though - I still write, mostly romantic comedy films, comedy TV shows, and sketches. My scripted comedy podcast, Ex Pat, debuted in March 2020 on all major podcast platforms. My comedy sketch, Happy Divorce-aversary, was featured in the 2018 National Hispanic Media Coalition’s industry showcase. When I’m not creating, you can find me playing in a dodge ball league or geeking out over tabletop and video games. About the podcast: A comedy about an interracial and international romance between a Filipina American gal and an Irish guy and the culture clash that happens as a result.*** Links *** Ex Pat:website - www.ExPatTheShow.comTwitter - www.twitter.com/ExPatTheShowInstagram - www.instagram.com/ExPatTheShow  Rachanee's info:website - www.rachanee.netTwitter - www.twitter.com/rachaneelumaynoInstagram - www.instagram.com/moonlilymusic  Writers Group Therapy:website - www.writersgrouptherapy.comTwitter - www.twitter.com/wgtherapyInstagram - www.instagram.com/wgtherapy

Mindfulness and Travel with Lianne and Corey
"Mindfulness and travel are interwoven, find what grounds you in that time and bring it to the everyday life.[...] it is for everybody..." - Lianne 2020 -"It is so important to get away, it centers you. Everybody experiences mindfulness, they are just not totally aware of it in the day to day life..."  - Corey 2020 -_____________________________________________Links:Podcast linkInstagram________________________________________LianneIn the 5+ years after leaving home, Lianne maximized the potential of her bruised and abused British passport. From utilizing the holiday working visas in Australia and Canada to road tripping the US and finding hidden surf spots in the Philippines, her love for travel is on clear display.Having grown up with 2 older brothers and worked too many hours in dirty dive bars, Lianne brings her sharp tongue and quick wit to the podcast world. Her experiences as a modern vagabond have many wondering how she maintains this lifestyle.Well... have a listen and you may find out!CoreyCorey has spent the last couple decades intermittently scouring the globe on both short and long term adventures. After a spell of, "growing up", he realized what makes him happy. So he met the gal, left his career, packed his bags and, well, hasn't looked back since.With an open mind and an open heart, and we mustn't forget about his loyal companion Charley, Corey loves learning about pretty much everything. Culture and travel certainly are not excluded from that. His cheekiness is well balanced with an empathetic nature, to provide you with an enthusiastic (he is American after all), yet comical host.
