Your Host

Diane Ferraro

Interested in learning the Tarot or deepening your understanding? Hosted by me, Diane Ferraro, my Urban Siren Podcast explores the symbolism of the Tarot cards often in tandem with the zodiac calendar, moon cycles, seasons, astrology and current events through a compassionate, joyful, and self-empowered lens. What do I mean by modern mermaids and mystics as mentioned in my tagline? That’s my siren call to you! Envision stepping in to your personal power in connection with divine inspiration, and let’s journey together. A dyed-in-the-wool Gen-X maverick (aka hard worker with a heart of gold), my special sauce is a blend of grounded, practical guidance peppered with mystical elements including the Tarot, astrology and mindfulness techniques to help you access your intuition. Among today’s “get fixed and rich quick” schemes, my approach stands out. I don’t sugar coat you with platitudes that tend to keep you stuck while promising you the stars. Rather, working with me will help you realize that you are the star. You might especially love hanging with me in this forum because I’ve got a real thing for radio. As a former co-host on BlogTalk Radio on a show with more than 1 million downloads, and speaker at the SXSW festival in Austin, TX, being on the stage or the airwaves is one of my favorite venues to share and grow with you. With more than 20 years of business and nonprofit experience, social progress is at the core of my being. I love exploring how to empower ourselves and socially conscientious projects to the next best level.

I answer listener questions and you are welcome to leave me a message for the chance for your question to be addressed on the podcast.

Pete Calgaro is the creator of several of the beautiful musical pieces you’ll hear on my podcast. Pete is a multi-instrumentalist who creates music for meditation, relaxation and healing, with close to 30 CD releases since 2002. He has been performing music in public since the age of 10, when he would play a pipe organ at his local Catholic Church.
Since, then he has played in many groups and bands – everything from symphonic to jazz to rock cover bands. He had a spiritual awakening of sorts in the early 2000s, which led to the recording of his first album, “Keys”. “Keys” was intended as a gift to friends and family. He duplicated just enough copies to hand out to a select number of loved ones. It was a compilation of the piano solos he had written over a period of decades.
Once that recording was finished, he realized that he wanted to create music to help people remember who they are and get in touch with their inner guidance.
People over the years have used his music for yoga classes, meditation, calming children in day cares, for soothing road rage, to aid in falling asleep, for recovering from illness and for easing physical and mental pain. Even animals have been known to settle down and relax while listening to his music.
Pete currently serves as Music Director at Unity of Madison in Wisconsin. where he has had the chance to collaborate with hundreds of singers and musicians. In addition, he is the Music Director, Drummer and Chant Leader for the Kirtan group Indra Adhira. Visit his website for more information: PeteCalgaro.com
