Ep 25: Worms! Heroes of the Underground w/ Jeremiah Brunelle
It's our last episode of our 8-episode winter season already! As the weather begins to warm up and the soil begins to thaw, many of us are anxiously waiting to get back into our gardens again, playing outside. Thus, friend and expert worm (and food) farmer Jeremiah Brunelle joins us for a fun, educational & lighthearted episode all about worms!
Ep 24: Connecting Nutrition to Emotion w/ Karmen Gregg
Today our guest is a nutritionist trained in integrative and functional nutrition, she’s also an instructor of health and nutrition at Great Northern University, the brilliant Karmen Gregg. Karmen’s been in the field for over seven years, has a ton of education, including the PhD she’s currently working on. It’s amazing how we forget just how nurturing the act of preparing and eating food for yourself is. How self-caring that truly is. Food is truly connected to so much more than we realize in our busy, plugged-in lives. When we have the right help understanding how to repair our relationship with what we eat, we can change everything about our health, how we see ourselves, and every aspect of life.

Ep 22: Let's Pick on Environmentalism w/ Bri Crotinger
Bri returns once again to the podcast to help me take an objective look at a true phenomenon of our time. This episode wades through a few key critiques of environmentalism from Ayn Rand, random internet opinions, and a high school debate teacher. We share notes, comments, guidance & rants on this café esque discussion. Light trigger warning for those sensitive to topics surrounding religion & Christianity.
Ep 21: What Does Community Mean to You? Pt. 2 w/Brian Seguin
The intelligent and ever-resourceful Brian Seguin returns to conclude our discussion on who and what is included in a community. How do you feel belonging in your community? Do you feel at home where you are? Who or what makes you feel at home; and how do those distinctions affect your perspective on who or what a community is composed of? Satish Kumar says, "We have to shift our attitude of ownership of nature to relationship with nature. The moment you change from ownership to relationship, you create a sense of the sacred." The same connections apply with our local coexisting human beings.
