I’m Darin Olien, the “superfood hunter.”
On this podcast, you’ll hear honest conversations with extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they’ll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same. We want to save the planet. So let’s try, one conversation at a time.
Each week I release a second episode where I dive into one of society’s Fatal Conveniences™. I define Fatal Conveniences™ as the things that you’re doing or the products you’re buying to make life easier. But those very things may actually be harming you, or the Earth. But don’t worry, in each episode I give you easy ways to tweak your habits so that you can live a healthier, cleaner life, all while protecting our planet.
So if you want to live a kickass life and leave the world a better place, this is the podcast for you.
Fast Fashion | Fatal Conveniences™
Trends come and go in the blink of an eye.
Fast fashion is a way to keep up with those trends. The clothes are cheap, easy to find, and come in every color of the rainbow. It makes it easy to afford a different outfit for every day of the week if you wish. But at what cost? This fast fashion is endangering our health, the health of the planet, and the dignity of workers all over the world. It’s time to slow down this dangerous fast-fashion craze.

New Year’s Resolutions | Fatal Conveniences™
Making a New Year’s resolution is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, setting goals and setting out to improve yourself and your life is a very positive action to take. However, making unachievable resolutions is just setting you up for stress and disappointment. I want to help you learn how to set reasonable goals- and then achieve them in a healthy way. We need to dig a little deeper on the “why” before we can get to the “how”.

Wrapping Paper | Fatal Conveniences™
Giving presents is one of the most cherished traditions of the holiday season. But that colorful paper you’re wrapping each gift in is incredibly wasteful. The cheaper the wrapping paper, the more likely it’s full of toxic materials. But the more expensive the wrapping paper, the more likely it’s full of pollutants like glitter, aluminum or plastic. The bottom line is it’s time to ditch the gift wrap and get creative.
