The Cracking Open Podcast
Hi, I’m your host, Molly Carroll.
Join me every other week as I share the stories of thought leaders and spiritual teachers, actors and athletes, parents, and prophets’ on how their “cracking open” moment; the death of a loved one, getting thrown in jail, being bullied in grade school, or hitting rock bottom with an addiction changed their life forever and will change yours too.
So get comfy in a chair and grab yourself a cup of tea, or buckle up while driving and listen while we dive deep to what it means to crack open and forever be transformed. Listen now.
For years I have seen people crack open through loss, divorce, addiction and trying to find more light in their lives and I realized even though it is painful and uncomfortable it is these cracking open moments that changed their lives forever. So I wanted to start a podcast where I asked each of my guests “What was your cracking open moment and how did it change you forever?” And it is this one question that brought us and everyone listening to feel more connected to each other, less alone, combat shame and know it is the cracking open that brings the light into our lives.
People ask, how do you pick your guests? I follow my gut every time. I hear a story on a podcast, read an article or a friend shares something with me on a walk about someone’s Cracking open moment. And I just know I need to talk to them and need my listeners to hear their stories of loss and love, hard times and hope and tragedy and triumph. I love to explore the process and depth of the journey of life and I know you will too!
