Imperfectly Broken The Podcast

10 Episodes

By: Kyra Nielson

Being human means being imperfect. Being human means you make mistakes. Being human means you can love, laugh, learn, grow, change, and live. It means you matter. It means you have value.This podcast is focused on aspects of being human, but most importantly, being imperfect. Being human means a life full of stories, relationships, and growth. Psychology helps us learn more about being human, and I share a lot of what I’ve learned and have been learning from my classes.I hope listening to this podcast makes you laugh, encourages you to grow, and helps you learn.I ho...

121 FSY Journal #1

I’ve decided it would be fun to record real and raw (completely unedited) little episodes about my experiences each day. I don’t know how many episodes there will be or for how long I’ll do it, so let me know if you like it!

I didn’t even add the intro music or the outro music, though I probably will in the future.

I hope you enjoy my little recap!

119 The Absolute Threshold

I care deeply about this concept/topic and have wanted to share it with you for a long time.

Finally, I sat down and recorded my thoughts and experiences about it!

I hope you can learn more about the absolute threshold and understand why I think it’s so important and applicable!

I did something different than I’ve ever done before (and I’ll probably never do it again); it’s down below. I separated the time for you between topics.

118 Rob Burdzy Interviews Me!

Today I’m shaking it up … big time!

This episode is a recording from last Friday, the 19th of April. My friend Rob invited me to come on Thunder 91.1 (SUU’s radio station) during his shift so he could interview me about my podcast.

I met Rob Burdzy in my Audio Production class this semester. I am a front-row student (as you probably already know haha!) and so is Rob! We became friends and have bonded over our mutual interest in depth and in growth.

In this episode we discuss depth, meaning, growth, my podcas...

116 A Recap of Our Trip to Europe (feat. Hannah Cluff)

Hannah and I talk about our study abroad trip to Europe. Hannah shares her side of things and we share our favorite places and parts of the experience.

P.S. I want to apologize for the inconsistent volume levels. I tried to turn moments up so it was easier to hear, and then I just gave up. If you have to constantly mess with the volume settings, I really am sorry!

115 An Insider’s Look on Being a Bishop (feat. Scott Roberson)

For about a month now I have felt prompted to record an episode with Brother Scott Roberson (aka Brother Rob). I reached out to him, and he kindly agreed.

Brother Rob talks about the duties of being a bishop, challenges related to this calling and how he overcame them, times when he felt prompted to reach out to someone, what he wanted his legacy to be, stewardship and its role in a ward, how he promoted spiritual growth in the ward, lessons he learned as a bishop, how he balanced all of the different demands on his plate...

114 A Testimony Comes From the Heart (feat. Michelle)

This is an FSY episode where I interview my fellow counselor friend, Michelle!

Michelle shares some of her most memorable moments as an FSY counselor, times when she felt directed to follow a prompting, times when a prayer was answered that lead to a mini miracle, and how her relationship with the Savior grew this past summer.

This was such a fun podcast to record! Thank you Michelle!

113 Strategic Watering

I LOVE my Experimental Analysis of Behavior class. It is so intriguing, fascinating, applicable, and fun! I feel like I learn so much everyday, and I (can’t believe I’m saying this) love reading the textbook.

Today I talk about operant conditioning in relation to parenting. This topic is vast and complex, and this episode merely scratches the surface.

Specifically, I talk about reinforcement, extinction, schedules of reinforcement, PREE (partial reinforcement extinction effect), and extinction bursts.

I hope you find this information as fascinating as I do!
