Woke and Wired is a new conversation about expanded consciousness and entrepreneurship in the digital age. How can we harness the infinite possibilities of today’s digital world to create success, fulfillment and positive impact? And can our personal spiritual practice contribute to it? This podcast was born out of a ten-year exploration of the possibility of living a spiritually rich life while using the Internet – specifically, social media – to create a life of freedom, connection, creative expression, and abundance. Your host, New York-based entrepreneur Ksenia Avdulova, is an embodiment of the new paradigm and has created the award-nominated media platform Breakfast Criminals with over 100K+ followers through the intuitive guidance she received in meditations. From journeying to the mountaintops of India to studying a variety of energetic practices like QiGong and Reiki, she understands the power that opens up when you combine expanding your consciousness, digital technology, and unstoppable action. Follow along as Ksenia shares actionable takeaways from her personal journey and has unfiltered conversations with those who cracked the code of being plugged into both seen and unseen realms. We will talk about the how, the why, and explore the paths and spiritual practices of conscious entrepreneurs and thought leaders. Instead of sharing formulas that worked for someone else, we will have thought-provoking conversations that will help you find your own WOKE way in this WIRED world.

touching and real
i love this podcast. it brings me so much inspiration and energy. it validates my own curvy and crooked path through this life. it is a window into the lives of people i can deeply relate too. so happy to have discovered, can’t wait to hear more !!
I started listening to Woke and Wired a couple months ago. Not only is this podcast inspiring, it provides insight into creating a more connected and aligned life daily. Ksenia speaks with people who are living their truth through their businesses, showing that success and being “woke” are not mutually exclusive. Ksenia herself is inspiring (follow her on Instagram!) and her work on all platforms has helped reframe my perspective on creating rituals and seeing daily tasks (such as making a morning beverage) as a way to connect to my true self and allow that to shape the rest of my day. This podcast is not just for entrepreneurs (I’m not), but for anyone looking to grow mentally, spiritually, and in their career.
Such a beautiful podcast... I've only listened to a few episodes so far but I'm totally hooked and inspired your spirit, sincerity and mission. I've listened to a lot of podcasts in the wellness/entrepreneurial space and whenever I find one that just rings so true and real, it's like finding a treasure!!
Thank you so much for the inspiration and I can't wait to listen more 💗
