About Our Podcast

Welcome to Thrivin’ in the Wild podcast.

We're so excited to invite you as we share stories weekly, from people who have dared to show up,

stepped into the wild and learned to trust their own compass.


As we reflect on our own lessons learned, we will share with you the twists and turns that have shaped

our journeys and the ones we’ve yet to discover.


We're taking the leap and happy to have you with me in this new chapter. 

An adventure lies ahead. We’re Thrivin’ in the Wild.

Who you are, from where you are, to where you'll go.

Our Host - Taylor Stern

Hi, I'm Taylor Stern. I run my own social & digital media agency by day and I host “Thrivin’ in the Wild” podcast by night. 

What inspired me to start this new adventure?

After 10 years in the sports industry, I'm now writing my own playbook. After 6 years with the Dallas Cowboys I was able to grow both as a professional, creative and teammate. I earned an Emmy award for production on a documentary of Dak Prescott and named to Forbes’ 2020 30 under 30 Class. The thing is, for every peak, there has been a summit, and I'm grateful to have the chance to keep seeking a new road ahead.

But one of the things I really want you to know about me is that I'm a fun-loving, New Mexico native and the proudest mom of a rescue pup named Judy. I rescued her at the start of the 2020 pandemic & she’s slowly become the only thing in my camera roll. Obviously next to wannabe foodie pics and failed tik-tok dances.


Co-Host + Director - Alex Stern


Hi, I'm Alex Stern. I'm a writer, creative and artist. I co-host

and direct “Thrivin’ in the Wild” podcast by night. 

What brought me to join this adventure? After writing songs and recording music in Nashville for the past 7 years, I'm inspired to thrive in the newest chapter of my story. 

After being selected as a CMT Discovery Artist, I joined Luke Combs

and Brantley Gilbert to perform with my band and I earned the #1 spot on CMT's Twelve Pack Countdown. The truth is, throughout my whole journey, sharing my heart with my community has been the most fulfilling and best part. 

I'm so grateful to continue creating and helping to share honest wisdom,

 empowering stories, and bringing together our Thrivin' In The Wild

community. Can't wait to keep sharing this journey with you!
