Karen Endsley and Will Rodriguez, hosts of The Skeptic Metaphysicians weekly podcast, tell their listeners, “Like Mulder from the X-Files, we want to believe.” They are both seasoned communications professionals, having experienced video production from behind and in front of the camera. When Karen and Will join us in our 21 February meeting, they will have produced over 100 podcast episodes, talking with people who are deeply entrenched in the spiritual, metaphysical, mental health, and self-help worlds.
Karen Endsley – Producer/Host
Karen Endsley is the host of Cooking from the Heart and Destination Virginia. Her passion is showing busy moms/dads how to prepare healthy, delicious and budget -friendly meals that are simple to make and won’t take away from family time. When she is not in the kitchen, she loves traveling and discovering new places and things to do. Though she’s traveled extensively around the world including to China, Morocco, Egypt and Greece, her favorite destination country is Italy, where she spent several months learning cooking secrets from chefs in that country. Her love of travel is what has inspired her to explore the hidden (and not so hidden) gems on Destination Virginia, a show that provides her with an opportunity to show viewers the amazing experiences to be had right here in our own back yard.
