It’s me, your old pal Lux ATL, and I’m coming at ya with a brand new podcast!

I am so excited to share stories with y’all again!

You might remember Stripcast: True Stories from a Stripper with a PhD, my 52-part memoir-cast series that ran from 2016 to 2017.

In Stripcast, I told my own stories–to the tune of nearly half a million downloads (and counting)! But I’m not the only one with good stories, ya know….

If you follow me, you probably already know that I host retreats for women all over the world. The primary aim of these retreats is to provide women with the space–both literally and figuratively–to embody their most beloved, truest self–that vibrant badass they put on the shelf back in ’08 (or maybe never took off the shelf at all?). At my retreats, women gather in a spirit of openness and honesty–and this makes for some pretty juicy–and insightful!–storytelling.

So many times, on these retreats, I’ve thought–

these women’s stories need a stage.

So today–and every Wednesday for the next four weeks–I’ll be giving them just that.


My Favorite Fck Up! 

My Favorite Fck Up! is a brand new four-part series featuring twelve women from all walks of life spilling stories of their wildest, most delicious, most heart-breaking, and most beloved fuck-ups, told before a live audience at a beach house on the shores of North Carolina at Stripcoast, my annual retreat for women craving the opportunity to embody the badass firecracker hidden inside–and share her best stories with those eager to listen in the meantime.

You can find My Favorite Fck Up! on iTunesLibSyn, and soon, Stitcher.

In each episode of My Favorite Fck Up!, you’ll hear three of these women’s stories. Each episode has a theme, and in My Favorite Fck Up!, Episode One, we explore….

Love Affairs.

(click here or on the image below to watch a video preview of today’s episode!)

  • Sally rolls the dice and risks a four for a six.
  • Arlene tells us what it’s like to watch a beautiful man walk away.
  • Jenny falls in love with a dead man.

Strap in for these stories–and grab your Kleenex, ’cause your ass is about to get moved.

Want to be featured on a podcast just like this one? You’re in luck, ’cause you’ve got options…


Spend three nights and days immersing yourself in the craft of writing at my first ever writers’ retreat, ScriptCraft!  Join me in the mountains of North Carolina on May 13-16, 2018 for three peaceful and productive nights at a beautiful lodge set along a ridge in the Nantahala National Forest… with full meals, including a four course dinner each evening… and plenty of time to get creative, relax, and share! For the first time ever, this retreat is open to all genders. This retreat is already filling up, so if you want in, do not hesitate to apply.  Details and application here!


Or perhaps you want to be part of the same experience that produced My Favorite Fck Up!? In that case, Stripcoast 2019 is the place for you! Join a dozen or so other women for five nights on the beach in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where the wild horses roam as we share stories, laughs, tears–and the occasional boogie-boarding lesson. Applications for Stripcoast 2019 are not yet open–though they will be soon–but you can read all about this year’s event here. If you want to be on the first-to-know list for Stripcoast 2019, just hit reply with the subject line “Stripcoast 2019 please!” and we’ll put you on the list. Do note that like the majority of my retreats, Stripcoast is limited to women only. 

At both of these retreats, guests will enjoy writing instruction, workshops, and the opportunity to record their story before a live audience, to later be shared on a podcast like My Favorite Fck Up! 

I certainly hope to see you IRL one of these days soon. <3
