Unified Threads


It all starts with perception.

What if our perception of the world, and its many inhabitants, expanded?
Every Being has a different vantage point.
When we truly know a soul, we find solace.
Asking questions with an open mind and heart is how we learn how to relate to one another.
Relational healing goes beyond the surface level.
When we listen to someone on a deeper level, we fear less and love more. We’re all teachers.
Every Being on this planet has a gift that is meaningful to share.

This podcast is about expanding our vision and illuminating the threads that weave us together as a community.

Simply put, this podcast is about Lessons in Love.

Welcome to Unified Threads.

My name is Amy Shrodes, I was born on June 30th, 1990, and I’m committed to learning more about the threads of love that weaves us together as a community all over this beautiful planet. 

I'm on a mission to expand my perspective on the importance of community around the world, and feel called to share what I learn with anyone that is interested in listening.

This episode lays the foundation for the rest of the vantage points that will be shared in this project. It’s centered around the place that I first discovered the power of love in a community context, Oklahoma City. 

Featuring Ferris O’Brian, Owner of the SPY FM (91.7 OKC / 107.5 Tulsa), an independent radio station based in OKC, U.S.A., Shannon Presti, Director of Teen Leadership Initiatives at the YMCA of Central Oklahoma, and Brian Beckwith, who shares his perspective on less stress, less mess. 

It also features tunes from Shabby Chic Heartbeat Garage and Chey Halliwill. You can listen to more of their music at and
