    330) Fariha Róisín: Finding healing beyond the wellness-industrial-complex

    330) Fariha Róisín: Finding healing beyond the wellness-industrial-complex

    How have the wellness and beauty industries thrived off of a dominant culture of non-acceptance? And what might be the healing potentials that lie in plant medicines—when their sacred origins and rituals are honored and respected?
    In this episode, we welcome Fariha Róisín. As a multidisciplinary artist who is a Muslim queer Bangladeshi, she is interested in the margins, in liminality, otherness, and the mercurial nature of being.
    Róisín is the author of the poetry collection How To Cure A Ghost, as well as the novel Like A Bird. Her upcoming work is a book of non-fiction entitled, Who Is Wellness For? and her second book of poetry is entitled Survival Takes a Wild Imagination.
    The song featured in this episode is Little Girl by Lil Idli.

    329) Kristina Lyons: Soil as cultural, relational, historical

    329) Kristina Lyons: Soil as cultural, relational, historical

    What does it mean to "see" soil beyond their chemistry and biology—understanding also their cultural, relational, and historical embodiment? How have Colombian small and Indigenous farmers resisted—and thrived—even amidst decades of armed conflicts, scientific colonization, and epistemological and ontological violences?
    In this episode, we welcome Dr. Kristina Lyons, an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, whose current research is situated at the interfaces of socio-ecological conflicts, transitional justice, community-based forms of reconciliation, militarized psychologies, and science and legal studies in Colombia.
    Her book, Vital Decomposition, weaves together an intimate ethnography of two kinds of practitioners: state soil scientists and small farmers who attempt to cultivate alternatives to commercial coca crops and the military-led, growth-oriented development paradigms intended to substitute them.

    328) Nick Estes: Decolonial histories and The Red Deal

    In this episode, we welcome Nick Estes, a member of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe and co-founder of The Red Nation. Nick is a historian, journalist, and author of Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance.
    Together, we unravel the topics of why truth-seeking to better understand history has become so politicized and contentious, the boarding school system that the U.S. used to assimilate Native children, The Red Deal as going beyond what The Green New Deal addresses, and more.
    (The musical offering in this episode is Mother by Jared Sowan, provided to us by Indigenous Cloud.)

    327) Shilpa Jain: Cycles of hurt, cycles of healing

    326) Pete Davis: Committing in an age of infinite browsing

    326) Pete Davis: Committing in an age of infinite browsing

    What signs are there that the dominant culture has trended towards one of “choice paralysis”, with many stuck in “infinite browsing mode”? And how might encouraging people to commit—to causes, place, people, projects—support the societal transformation many deeply yearn for?
    In this episode, we welcome Pete Davis, a writer and civic advocate from Falls Church, Virginia. Pete works on civic projects aimed at deepening American democracy and solidarity, and he is the co-founder of Getaway and the Democracy Policy Network.
    Pete became well-known for his Harvard Law School graduation speech, “A Counterculture of Commitment,” which has been viewed more than 30 million times and became the basis for his book, Dedicated: The case for commitment in an age of infinite browsing.
    The musical offering in this episode is Around the World by Wig Wam, provided to us by Indigenous Cloud.

I can’t believe I’ve only just come across this podcast ... the stories and interviews on here are so interesting. In this current world we live in the Green Dreamer podcast should be required listening. The content is so relevant and beyond that, so important to absorb and learn from. I’d recommend this podcast for anyone dreaming of a better world, and wanting to understand how they can make that happen.
