The Badass Soul-Seeking Warrior Podcast Series, Episode 8 : Marji Guyler-Alaniz

Marji Guyler-Alaniz, founder of Farmher

It all started with a dream and a camera.

In 2013, Marji Guyler-Alaniz had just left her job in corporate agriculture and started a photo project titled FarmHer, capturing women working on the farm. She wasn’t the only one interested in updating the image of agriculture and others began to follow the movement.

FarmHer quickly grew into a place where stories are shared, and women are not only recognized but feel a sense of inspiration and community. Today the business consists of various entities, all shining a light on women in agriculture.

In this podcast, you will hear Marji talk about:

The Badass Soul-Seeking Warrior Podcast Series, Episode : Adrian Buckaroogirl Brannan

Adrian Buckaroogirl Brannan

Adrian “Buckaroogirl” is a 20 something firecracker who is equally at home in the branding pen, ranch bronc or stage, who burst onto the western music scene at just 14 years old.

When she began sharing her songs of Nevada and cowboy’in as seen through the eyes of a young woman, the cowboy world hadn’t seen many girls of her caliber performing. But her old soul lyrics and powerful voice related to young cowboys and cowgirls, buckaroos and cowpunchers of the old west alike.

As a student majoring in International Relations and languages, Adrian began taking her time off the road to connect with young women her age through her weekly “Dear Cowgirl” posts on social media and blog. These open letters/poems to women around the world have sparked a massive following for their honest and upfront manner, and continued openness about Adrian’s experiences as a domestic violence survivor.

Western Horseman Magazine has called her the “buckaroo’s Taylor Swift” and have chosen her song, The Will James Days, from her first CD, Highway 80, as one of the 13 Best Western Songs of All Times. Also from Highway 80, her songs, Old Time Vaquero and Praise Him for the Pequaps have found their way into multiple western videos.

Adrian’s second CD, Boots, and Pearls was produced by Tom Russell who said in The Cowboy Way Magazine, “I heard the clear potential. I

The Badass Soul-Seeking Warrior Podcast Series, Episode 3: Leslie Farhangi

I first learned of Peony Vodka in the August 2016 issue of O Magazine.  Peonies are my favorite flower so I was intrigued.  As I researched more about the vodka I learned that it was the brainchild of Leslie Farhangi, a Stanford educated attorney who no longer enjoyed being a lawyer so she packed up and moved with her family to a 200-acre farm in the Hudson Valley.   Peony Vodka is a subtly flavored spirit born in eastern Hudson Valley, New York. Drawing inspiration from Dutchess County’s varied landscape, sparkling meadows and rushing brooks, stone walls and inviting trails, Peony Vodka was created to celebrate country living. Three Meadows Spirits’ operations take place in a historic 18th-century house nestled on a 200-acre farm of hay fields, pastures, woods and luscious rows of peony flowers that burst into fragrant bloom each June.

I know that you will enjoy Leslie’s story of passion and perseverance as she speaks about her journey of becoming a player in the very crowded world of vodka.

The Badass Soul-Seeking Warrior Podcast Series, Episode 1: Amberley Snyder

I read about Amberley Snyder in Cowgirl Magazine in April of 2016.  The introductory line of the article said, “Amberley Snyder is a badass barrel racer who is also paralyzed from the waist down.”  As I continued to read the article I was inspired by Amberley’s story of triumph over tragedy and I liked her spunky attitude about getting back in the saddle after a life-changing truck accident.

The Badass Warrior Podcast series was high on my list of things to create and Amberley’s story put that task into overdrive.  A little over a year later I was thrilled to sit down with Amberley and learn more about her, her family, and what she felt made her a badass.  You will be inspired by her story, so find a comfortable spot and sit down and listen to this young woman talk about her life and love of horses.  And, when you think you are having a bad day, listen to this podcast again.
