When we share our stories, we feel less alone

The Naked Podcaster is unconventional, gritty, explicit and raw. My guests cry sometimes but they are willing to share and for that, I am incredibly, overwhelmingly grateful. It's edgy, vulnerable, fun, upbeat and I adore giving my guests the opportunity for shameless self-promotion. I don't think we talk about ourselves in a positive, badass way nearly enough.  

How can I be Mom of 18 AND The Naked Podcaster? I bare it all physically and my guests bare it all emotionally. The story began a few years ago…. 

In 2015, three of my kids came forward and reported physical abuse. I grew up with dysfunction and abuse, had 18 kids and did foster care for 15 years so that my kids wouldn't have to experience abuse. That is called a cruel irony. It would be wonderful to say that was the extent of dysfunction the range my 18 kids have suffered, but that would be a lie. For many of them, they have experienced physical, sexual and emotional abuse from their relationship choices, bullying, depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide attempts, cutting, etc. Not things a Mom wants to watch her kids experience.

In 2016 I wrote my book about my story of dysfunction growing up. I wanted to be an example to my kids and for them to know they weren't alone in their struggle, even if the "issue" is different. I also wanted them to be unafraid of sharing their story, getting help and building a support team and tools. 

In 2017 9-months after the book release, the podcast was launched and my goal was to share OTHER people's stories of struggle and what was part of the toolbox they built to get through their trials.  

With ALL THREE situations, I was determined, deliberate, focused and driven. My desire is to help other people in their struggle - to make it faster, easier and more supported - for my listeners and sometimes even for my guests. Most definitely for my kids. 

So far, three of my daughters have been on my show. The first time I cried on the podcast was because one daughter described her suicide attempts and what saved her - which I wasn't aware of. If I didn’t know that story, they have other stories I don’t know about. Struggling alone is agonizing.

I want my kids - most who are adults now - to embrace their stories, be unashamed, to heal and to flourish. To embrace confidence and high self-esteem. To grow into the best humans they can be. And that's what I want for my guests and my listeners as well. My goal is to hold space and create a safe place for stories to be shared, and for all of us to lean into who we are.

From the original podcast series, 2 additional sub-categories have been released. 'Stripping with my daughters', and 'The Coaching Series'.

I hope you love all of them as much as I do.

Thank you to my kids for showing me how to stand up and be more than I ever imagined I could be.

Thank you for my guests for your willingness to Bare It All with me. 

Thank you to my listeners for giving me the opportunity to share stories that are heard. My guest’s desire - and my own - is that their story and the tools they've gathered will help you. 

We are stronger together!

Original Naked Interviews

Unconventional, gritty, explicit and raw. My guests cry sometimes but they are willing to share and for that, I am incredibly, overwhelmingly grateful. It's edgy, vulnerable, fun, upbeat and I adore giving my guests the opportunity for shameless self-promotion. We don't talk about ourselves in a positive, badass way nearly enough.

 

Coaching Series

This series started with a podcast guests suggestion. Prior guests coach me on very real issues in my own personal life. You get to see the coach in action as I don't sign a confidentiality agreement. These are raw and intense, but they'll help you know if someone is a good fit as a coach in your life.

Stripping With My Daughters

This series discusses tough topics from the perspective of the child and the parent with an open dialogue. Olivia is 24, Alana is 22, and Kezia is 18. They have amazing insight as the child, while I discuss the topic as a parent. Stripping away stigma, abuse, shame, pain, beliefs, etc... with them is epic

    “I worked with Jenn through her podcast; I was guest on the Naked Podcaster in 2019. It was a blast: Jenn is curious, energetic, compassionate and considerate, making the personal experience a fun one and the podcast a really interesting one. Jenn cares a lot about the people she works with her and spends so much time creating work that can inspire and help others; it's what she's driven to do, and she's really good at it. ”

    “What an exceptional opportunity to be a guest on your Podcast, to be heard with non-judgment. I admit that I wept afterward-with gratitude and with a certain shedding shame quality-like I had never so openly shared some of those stories with anyone other than a therapist or closest friends. There’s something profound about breaking the silence without relieving the experiences (though there’s that memory file that doesn’t ever actually leave the psyche-it’s just that you get better about sharing it like you’d tell someone what you wore to school in third grade-it doesn’t have all the emotional charge around it.)

    I finished reading, I Thought it Was Just Me (but it isn’t) by Dr. Brene Brown and found it to be very empowering, insightful and made me think of our time together.

    Your deep listening and willingness to open the door to the “real” backstories that birthed this passion for holistic transformation is such a bold, courageous place to go with people. To have a complete stranger feel safe enough to go there! The permission and compassion you hold!! Wow. Simply Wow!

    THANK YOU!!!

    With heartfelt gratitude,”

    “I didn't know what to expect when I went on The Naked Podcaster. What I got was anything but expected. My interactions with Jenn Taylor were candid, enlightening, funny, and entertaining. As a writer, I have always known where I come from, but I have never spoken about it. With Jenn Taylor, it came much easier than I would have thought. Great podcast, great interviewer, professional and emphatic, Jenn Taylor does her homework before the show, and that shone through.

    High recommend!”

    Jenn is a fun, funny and entertaining host that draws out the best from all of her guests. She knows how to get her guests to "strip" and bare stories they may not normally share with others. If you want to be on a roller coaster ride of emotions through great conversations, check out and subscribe to this podcast.”

    Open, Honest + RAW!
    Jenn is a brilliant host as she helps guests open wide and share their stories to help us all feel less alone. Her guests are fascinating human beings and Jenn brings out the best in them!”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    So smart and funny
    Jennifer is a great interviewer and can somehow make every guest relevant to your life. I understand the symbolism behind being naked, but you can’t see anything and you forget it’s happening in a hurry once you end up in listening to one of these conversations.”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    I love Jenn Taylor!
    Jenn Taylor has my vote for the most awesome interviewer! I love her style, her boldness, and her ability to get down and dirty with the truth for the sole purpose of helping others. Thanks, Jenn, for having me on your podcast and I hope to do it again soon!”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    Awesome interview
    I have been interviewed many times but Jenn was different. It was easy to share my story with her and she asked some great questions that showed how she was really listening and actually cared about what I was sharing. A real, authentic and genuine person whose podcasts I can highly recommend.”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    Let’s All Get Naked!
    My little chat with Jenn was SO much fun and SO easy (even when covering the hard topics, like she does). This woman has an energy and an open-armed acceptance that feels so much like chatting with a friend. Doesn’t surprise me that nothing surprises her when pulling out all the stops, but I would be a guest on her show again in a heartbeat and can’t wait to listen to our episode. Plus anyone who laughs at my self-deprecating jokes gets an A+!

    Keeping baring the truth (and everything else), Jenn! We need what you’re doing!”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    Jenn is the real deal!
    One of my highest values is authenticity, and Jenn embodies that to the nth degree! Her willingness and vulnerability to not only bare it all, but to express deep interest and care into the lives of others is refreshing and inspiring :)”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    Real, Raw and Restorative
    This podcast brings real life personal struggles and the way through them into view so listeners can relate and identify within their own life story. A beautiful way to bring tribute to the stories of lives lived and the journey of finding personal treasures within the stories that become cornerstones for us all.”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    Absolutely a show you need to hear!
    There was something different about this show that stood out to me compared to the 200 other interviews that I have done this year. It wasn’t the obvious thing😉. If I had to pilot it into words I would say that there was an understanding/empathy that radiated from Jenn during the interview. I really appreciated that and it made me feel at ease and allowed me to open up and dig deep into my stories.
    Highly recommend that you listen to this podcast!”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “★★★★★
    Jenn is an incredible host! A brilliant presence who pulls the deep and gritty to the surface and celebrates the mess and magic of life!

    What a host!!! What a show!!! Bare, honest, riveting, and kind. This is a gift of a show to listeners wanting real connection.”

  • Jenn Taylor

    “Loved being on Jenn's show, the Naked Podcaster. The conversation was deep, different, fun and vulnerable and most of all unpredictable. It is evident she cares about creating a space for amplifying and honoring leaders. The best compliment I can give Jenn is I want her in my DOSE of HOPE series because of her spirit and commitment to inspire and provide value for those looking for light and truth. ”
