Call Your Sister

Call Your Sister


Call Your Sister is a podcast for related and unrelated sisters or CYS everywhere co-hosted by Alexandra Hodge and Astrid Ferguson. Every week, Alex and Astrid call each other to discuss the complexities of motherhood, sisterhood, identity struggles, dating as a single mother, sex and much more. We’re real Latinx sisters who are fiercely opinionated, and not afraid to realtalk each other about everything from (men)strual cycles and body shaming to the Platanos versus Yuccas debates and current identity life drama. We highlight women who are both trying to keep it together and got it all figured out. We also care deeply about the lived experiences of BIPOC and Lantinx women who are just trying to get through the week. We’re here for every facet of women’s humanity because we are a community, a nation of CYS everywhere.

In this episode hosts Astrid Ferguson and Alexandra Hodge speak with Heiddi Zalamar the founder of HZ Coaching services, where she helps women who struggle with fear and deeply trusting themselves, build resilience so they can tackle life’s challenges with courage and confidence. After 14 years working with others and her own 20+ year healing journey, Heiddi has discovered joy and grounded confidence. She is the ringmaster of her own circus with her 20 year old and 6 year old boys.

We discuss Latinidad and how Heiddi navigated being an introvert with two extraverted (Puerto Rican mother and Ecuadorian father) parents. She shares her struggle with finding, identifying and ultimately releasing her identity. Aside from speaking about triumphs and pitfalls of Latinidad, she shares her favorite recipes, songs, and singers. Be prepared to hear us drop some gems while navigating the kiddos.
