PAXSON CHASE, a singer/songwriter, alternative/indie artist from Trenton, New Jersey, joined us to discuss his battles with depression, and how involvement with music has considerably assisted in his journey.
FROM HIS BIO:
"... Paxson Chase is looking to change the music narrative in his home state. Mostly being surrounded by trap and drill rappers, Paxson decided to take his own route.
Using his dark tone to offer his thoughts on depression, Chase mixes in an alternative sound as well. He also likes to step out and explore his voice going into bedroom pop and soft rock. 2020 was a big year musically for Paxson as he surpassed 300,000 streams. This gave him motivation to keep pushing because of the effect he is having on those going through similar, dark situations. Using influences from idols like XXX and Kid Cudi, he wants to keep being versatile and speaking on real life occurrences. Paxson also is trying to bring back the art aspect of music with his blends of sounds and harmonies.
With seeing amazing feedback from release last year titled “I Want to Kill Myself But Now Is Not The Right Time”, expect to see more and more heart wrenching music from Paxson Chase in 2021."

CASEY WAESCHE, a Mom, a Wife, a Sister, a Daughter, a Friend, a Colleague, and AUTHOR from Alexandria, Virginia, will join us to discuss her latest release, "I'm the Boss of Me".
FROM HER BIO:
Numerous Child Psychologists, Therapists, Teachers, Childhood Specialists and Parents are all saying my book, I'm The Boss Of Me, is a MUST HAVE for all little ones. (And they all know an adult or two that could benefit from reading it, too!)
But the MOST exciting thing to ME is that the LITTLE ONES are the BIGGEST FANS!! I'm getting videos and stories of them reading and LOVING the book!! Some for the first time ever!!
I wrote this book with my, then, 7 year old son when he came home, again, with a note from his teacher saying he had another "outburst" in class. I asked him why this kept happening and he said, "It's not MY fault, Mommy! My mouth did it!"
I said, "Well you need to be a better Boss of your mouth!..." and an idea, philosophy, book series and more was started!"
Fresh from the success of his book, "A Principal's Family Principles" (available for purchase at www.amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and www.outskirtspress.com), "Dr. Paul's Family Talk" focuses on the family, kids, parenting, schools, jokes, music, sports, issues of the day, and all issues that impact the family.
