Unraveling Together

Hosted by: Samantha Graber

Unraveling Together is a podcast for women who opt out of the narrative that our best years are behind us and that we are now relegated to the back burner of society. We know our best is before us.

The Unraveling Together Podcast is where we are free to talk about the things "we just don't talk about". Sharing wisdom with those who come after us is a crucial aspect of our personal growth.

Episode 015: Resilience And The Role Peter Gabriel Plays In Mine


Peter Gabriel songs pepper the soundtrack of my life.   “Don’t Give Up” is among my favorite songs of all time.  The depth of emotion in the lyrics, the heaviness in the pregnant pauses. His voice. Hers.   It gets me every time.   One song of his that pops into my head a fair amount as of…

Episode 014: “Eating Fat Makes You Fat” And Other Big Fat Lies You Need To Stop Believing


The gloves are off in this hard-hitting episode of the Unraveling Together Podcast. Just because something is regurgitated ad nauseum, doesn’t make it true.  The Earth is not flat, and eating fat does not make you fat, in and of itself.   This particular nutrition myth really gets me riled up.  There are many reasons for…

Episode 013: Are You in the (E) Camp or the (F) Camp?


Your body has a built-in fuel gauge* much like the one in your car.  Instead of simply noting how much fuel is in the tank, the body’s fuel gauge determines whether we burn our food for energy or store it as fat. Insulin points the needle toward (E)mpty AKA “Energy” or (F)ull AKA “Fat”. If our fuel gauge points toward (E), we burn what we eat for fuel.  When…

Episode 012: Slowly Drowning In A Sea Of “Not Okay-ness”


The deeper questions of life are rarely asked outside our own head. We choke down the feelings, often aided by a glass (or several) of wine before we hit the sack to try to sleep, yet again. All so we can get up the next day and “try” to answer the deeper questions we ask…

Episode 011: This Is Jet Fuel For The Body & Brain, But You Can’t Buy It Anywhere.


Life as we know it can be stressful to say the least. Add to it the breakneck speed at which most of us operate, and it’s no wonder we have to jolt ourselves with caffeine or a sugar high multiple times a day. We jump from one thing to another because we’re always behind the…

Episode 010: “You MUST Eat Every 2-3 Hours Or You’ll Go Into Starvation Mode”…and Other BS You’ve Been Force-Fed


Ahhh…the Holy Grail of fitness experts and obesity profiteers alike. We’ve all heard Conventional Wisdom’s reasoning behind the “eat every 2-3 hours” chant. “It will stoke your metabolic fire.” “You’ll have more energy.” And my favorite, “You’ll burn more calories”. Sorry to say, they’re all wrong. Truth is, whether frequent or all at once, the body burns the same amount of…

Episode 009: The “Brain Bliss Trifecta” With A Most Welcome Mental Health Side Effect.


Look around, mental health issues are steadily on the rise.  You can’t scroll your social media feed without some reference to mental health. Depression and anxiety are more prevalent than ever.  Many midlife women are afflicted by some variation of mental health issues…could what we eat help our brain function and feel better?  I say “Yes, you betcha!”  As do many…

Episode 007: Doing Nothing And Still Losing Weight? Sounds Too Good To Be True!
