Rose Medina, MSW
Rose, Bastard-Child-of-the-East, was born and raised in NYC, a Nuyorican (Puerto Rican non-raised Jew), with a big mouth & many opinions. She began this Podcast to bring together both friends, strangers & a Man She Met at a Bar, to discuss issues with authenticity, alcohol, humor, respect & illegal narcotics; consequently, with slurred speech and poor judgment (as per legal requirement, please read Disclaimer).
As an overachiever, Rose attended both Columbia & Boston University proudly graduating with a solid D average. She worked as a CSW in NYC & LA but now is a stay-at-home-mom (an important job too damn it!). She’s been a devout Feminist since 1983, when she learned the actual meaning of the word, had her first orgasm & thought she was going straight to hell!
Seen on YouTube by none, starring in As Whole Mom.com, Actress in her own mind, Comedian in her own head, and on a serious note, a Licensed Mechanic & Mother-of-Teens. She has traveled the world as a lifestyle & model but chose LA as her stomping ground.
Pay attention while she shares her under-educated, un-medicated, and unsolicited advice, on topics that you may or may not care about. With a chip on her shoulder, and the inability to stop herself, Listen In, while she and a group of Americans drink and argue current issues.
Halona is an entrepreneur, a professional life coach, an attorney (at large) and a social worker. Oh - and an ordained deacon. Obviously, she still hasn’t decided what she wants to be when she grows up (she is open to suggestions). All she knows is that the plight of mankind is in her hands.
She BIPOC - for the un - “woke” among you, that means “Black Indigenous Person of Color.” Amen to that! Is she a woman first? Or a POC first? Depends on the issue and her mood.
AACP wanted a Republican co-host but got something WAY better - an Angry Black Woman! She is a Yankee surviving in a Southern State - may God help us all!
Do you have Jungle Fever yet?

Animal Alliance exercised their creative spirit by designing & manufacturing a clothing line, “T-shirts with a conscience” all proceeds benefit animals in need.

She was born in St. Petersburg Russia, grew up in Europe, and found her heart’s home in New York City where she’s currently based.
Lives and career de-routes turned into a life full of adventure. A lawyer by education, a hospitality professional by career. A podcast junkie turned into podcast editor & manager and behind the scenes wizard because this is where the magic happens and then show comes to life! Stories are the most powerful way of connection and podcasting helps many to find their voice and courage to freely speak about their story, to support, to encourage and entertain!
Motto: “Dare to dream"
