Right-brained Sarah is best known for her appearances on MTVs Real World: Brooklyn and The Challenge, but don’t let the label of “reality star” fool you, she’s one smart cookie. Raised by artist parents, Sarah learned at an early age how to see the world as a playground for creativity and invention. Between craft projects, Sarah travels the world, exploring and gathering inspiration from the colorful places and people she encounters. Sarah is a self-proclaimed “lifelong learner” and “answer seeker.” The eternal optimist, Sarah’s love of the human spirit led her to obtain a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Her hobbies include crossword puzzles, being a plant lady, and all things “witchy.”
Susie was born and raised in Pittsburgh, but after high school joined MTV’s Road Rules for the ride of her life. She has since participated in seven shows on MTV (but don’t judge her). In 2014, she received her PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh. After Brain Candy’s success, Susie founded WAVE Podcast Network with her husband, Adam, and their network’s shows consistently rank on the iTunes top charts. Her writing has been featured in Huffington Post, Vox, Salon, Jezebel, and other outlets, and she continues to conduct research on religion in modern America.
