Welcome to the

Cuban & Sooner Podcast

The Cuban & Sooner podcast helps take listeners from, “What the hell is going on and how do I deal?” to, “I’m not alone, I can do this.” It’s not so much about achieving work-life balance, it’s more about teetering between the blurred lines of work, life, relationships and personal issues that intersect them all. We explore feeling stuck, frustrated and uncertain, and how to gain new perspectives by sharing experiences, insights, practices and well-earned wisdom. We’re two kickass, ugly-crying and frequently victorious women who share occasionally opposing but often complementary viewpoints. We just hope nobody gets hurt.
