About E. Leese Main & This Podcast

Why I Proceed...


Welcome to the most safe and judgement free podcast on the planet.  A podcast where double standards are non factors and speaking freely is the only way! Hello I am Erline, aka E. Leese Main, and I wanted to share with the masses people that are not afraid to speak their minds and say what so many of us are afraid to say! 

I miss the days of real conversation. The moments before the electronic devices and social media. When friends and family joined great conversation flourished all while having drink and eating a good home cooked meal. No topic is off limits and every topic is within reach.

I am just a simple 40~ish  woman, of beautiful color trying to live my purpose and figure out this thing called life. I learned long ago that I cannot do this alone, and sometimes talking it out brings great reward! I hope to share my love of culture, society, movies, books, food, and thoughtful conversation. I created this JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE with the purpose to bring people to the table, no matter your background, to speak their minds and hug after!  We will discuss adulting and all the ups, downs, and double standards that comes along with it! So join in the conversation! Start a dialog! Come on in...the water is fine! So...Shall We Proceed?.....yes indeed!
