Rob Paulsen: The Voice of Pinky, Animaniacs, Ninja Turtles and More

Rob Paulsen: The Voice of Pinky, Animaniacs, Ninja Turtles and More

October 5, 2021

How does "being present" translate into Pinky?  Well, we cover it in this episode.

Rob Paulsen is the voice of Pinky from “Pinky and the Brain,” Yakko from “Animaniacs,” Raphael (and Donatello) from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and Carl Wheezer from “The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.” He has an Emmy, Annie and Peabody Award. 

Paulsen has been the voice of over 250 different animated characters and performed in over 1000 commercials.

Rob’s memoir Voice Lessons: How a Couple of Ninja Turtles, Pinky and an Animaniac Saved My Life  chronicles his journey with throat cancer. 

Ironically, a man who uses his voice for work found himself with throat cancer (now recovered.) 

“Animaniacs,” the popular 90s cartoon series, has returned to Hulu with Rob reprising his original role as Yakko. The show has already been picked up for a third season.

Patrick Vellner: The Crossfit Games and “We are Not Machines” (A Best of The Same 24 Hours Replay Episode)

August 9, 2021

In honor of Pat Vellner's epic and recent 2nd place finish at the 2021 Crossfit Games, we publish this replay episode.

Meredith Atwood (@meredith.atwood) and her co-host, ten-year old (at the time of publication) Stella (@stella.lifts), interview CrossFit Games podium athlete and all-around nice guy, Patrick Vellner.

Vellner says, "[As a] part time chiropractor in Nanaimo, Canada, I have an extensive sports background and have been competing in Crossfit since 2013. I made it to the games for the first time in 2015 on Team Crossfit Plateau 2 and have since been back in 2016-2019, and 2021 to compete as an individual finishing on the podium 4 times. Crossfit has been a great way for me to challenge myself and escape from my studies while also being a great outlet for my competitiveness."

Laila Tarraf: Strong Like Water

Laila Tarraf: Strong Like Water

June 14, 2021

Laila Tarraf was the Chief People Officer for Peet’s Coffee and Tea, the iconic Berkeley coffee roaster that launched the craft coffee movement in America, but she had a secret: she was failing in the most important relationships in her life. Yes, she was a strong and effective business leader, the successful daughter of immigrants, and the mother of a toddler, but she was disconnected from her own feelings and had little patience for the feelings of others.

All that changed when life handed her a trifecta of losses: her husband died of an accidental drug overdose, and her parents' deaths followed in quick succession. Laila had spent her life leading from the head, convinced that any display of vulnerability would make her soft.

And it did, but soft turned out to be strong. As she reconnected to her heart, one painful step at a time, something remarkable happened: she became a better leader, a better mother, and a better person. Her heart turned out to be the true source of her power, at home and at work.

Strong Like Water is a book about healing, about waking up, about learning who you are -- who you really, truly are at the core -- and reclaiming and embracing all the pieces of yourself you had long abandoned in the name of survival. For women longing for balance, this is a path to opening our hearts and infusing our leadership and relationships with love, compassion, and authenticity.

Quote from Big Magic (Elizabeth Gilbert):

“Dearest Fear: Creativity and I are about to go on a road trip together. I understand you’ll be joining us, because you always do. I acknowledge that you believe you have an important job to do in my life, and that you take your job seriously. Apparently, your job is to induce complete panic whenever I’m about to do anything interesting – and, may I say, you are superb at your job. So by all means, keep doing your job, if you feel you must. But I will also be doing my job on this road trip which is to work hard and stay focused. And Creativity will be doing its job, which is to remain stimulating and inspiring. There is plenty of room in this vehicle for all of us, so make yourself at home, but understand this:  Creativity and I are the only ones who will be making any decision along the way. I recognize and respect that you are part of the family, and so I will never exclude you from our activities, but still – your suggestions will never be followed. You’re allowed to have a seat, and you’re allowed to have a voice, but you are not allowed to have a vote. You’re not allowed to touch the road maps; you’re not allowed to suggest detours. … But above all else, my dear all familiar friend, you are absolutely forbidden to drive.”

 Then we head off together – me and creativity and fear – side by side by side forever, advancing once more into the terrifying but marvelous terrain of unknown outcome.”
