    Amber Maloney & Brooke Franklin - balancing profits, performance & planet

    Amber Maloney & Brooke Franklin - balancing profits, performance & planet

    Built on the philosophy that women should never have to compromise their health or the planet with the products they choose, working at TOM Organic is truly unique; we're a team of twenty women who all work flexibly, 63% of whom work part-time. We're a business that leads with heart and champions flexible work. In an industry notorious for lacking transparency, we continue to grow because we prioritise it, and are committed to providing women with period products that are better for their health and the planet.

    In this episode, we take you inside TOM Organic for a candid conversation with our Product Director, Amber Maloney, and General Manager, Brooke Franklin. Amber shares the process of creating our new Period Cup and Period Briefs, launching them both within 12-months and during the height of the pandemic. And Brooke shares how the business is continuing to evolve our flexible work model to better support our team, their goals, families and business outcomes.

    In an episode close to our hearts and daily hustle, Brooke and Amber are transparent in sharing their experience and journeys in leading and evolving with a business where balancing performance, profits and planet is a daily practice.

    Juliet Allen - nurturing sexual self-esteem

    Juliet Allen - nurturing sexual self-esteem

    Our sexual self-esteem; it's the feelings you have about your body and your confidence in how you relate intimately to someone else. It's a defining part of who we are, yet many of us rarely explore this aspect of our identity or understand how we can invest in our own sexuality.

    In this episode, Australian sexologist and host of the Authentic Sex podcast, Juliet Allen dives deep into the science of sex, ways we can nurture our sexuality (both alone and with intimate partners), and the interplay between our sex drive, stress and our hierarchy of needs.

    Discussing one of the most taboo topics of the season, Juliet is confident, direct, and her depth of knowledge and personal approach to sexuality is a powerful example of what it can be like to live a life free of sexual stigma.

    Dr Sarah E. Hill - this is your brain on birth control

    Dr Sarah E. Hill - this is your brain on birth control

    Research indicates that by changing women's sex hormones, the birth control pill can influence everything from a woman's interest in sex, their stress response, mood, and even who they are attracted to.

    In this episode, we're in conversation with Dr. Sarah E. Hill, a research psychologist from the department of psychology at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas. Dr. Hill has also written; This is Your Brain on Birth Control, the surprising science of women hormones and the law of unintended consequences.

    When making empowered decisions for our health and wellbeing, we must have access to all the relevant information, which is why this conversation carries so much weight. Even though the hormonal birth control pill has been around since the '60s, the research into the ways it is influencing our brains and behaviour is relatively new and hasn't been made easily accessible.

    Kale Brock - the only health program that works

    Kale Brock - the only health program that works

    Research suggests that ageing is only 25% genetic, leaving 75% to the lifestyle we choose.

    In this episode, author and filmmaker Kale Brock reveals the health condition that sparked his journey to wellbeing, and the extensive and intimate journey of learning he's been on making his two films, The Gut Movie and The Longevity Movie.

    From living with remote tribes in Africa to visiting the Blue Zones of the world, Kale shares the contributing factors and practical examples we can apply from the happiest and healthiest communities in the world to improve the quality of the lives we live.

    Brock's approach to living "well" is refreshing, and based on discovery, a deep curiosity, and committing to what is sustainable.

    Dr Amanda Waaldyk - your period, the fifth vital sign

    Dr Amanda Waaldyk - your period, the fifth vital sign

    We will spend the equivalent of 10 years of our lives menstruating, yet so many of us feel disempowered or disconnected from our cycles. Periods are often labelled an inconvenience rather than the vital insight into our overall health that they are.

    Half of the world's population will get their period, but many women don't feel comfortable discussing their period with their family, or gynecological symptoms with their doctor.

    Periods are a vital part of our lives. They create life. Conversations about them shouldn't live in the shadows.

    Join our illuminating conversation with Dr Amanda Waaldyk, which was recorded in the treatment room of Angea Women's Health clinic; an integrative Chinese medicine practice with a focus on fertility and female endocrinology. It's here, Amanda explained our cycle to us, the factors contributing to the minimisation of our menstrual health, and the period revolution that is upon us.

    Manoj Dias - cultivating calm amongst COVID-19

    Manoj Dias - cultivating calm amongst COVID-19

    When we started this project, our goal was to create a podcast that helped each of us to feel less alone in our health and wellbeing journeys.
    Illuminating and sharing the things we tend to explore and experience alone and inwards carries more importance now than it did just a few months ago.

    As we try our best to adapt our daily way of being amongst the stress and uncertainty COVID-19 has created, the timing was not lost on us in talking to lululemon global meditation ambassador, Manoj Dias.

    In this episode, we open up a conversation with Manoj, co-founder of Australia's first-ever multidisciplinary meditation studio, A-SPACE that explores the stressors and opportunities in this new unknown challenge we're experiencing as a global community. We discuss how intrinsically connected our health is to one another, the radical reframing of community occurring, as well as the heightened need for kindness, compassion, and time away from it all to cope.

    Manoj's recommendations of people and accounts to follow on Instagram for support, resources and good vibes during this time:
    + Lama Rod Owens
    + Lodro Rinzler
    + Nicole Cardoza
    + Dr. Miles Neale
    + D-Nice

A new perspective

I was pleasantly surprised at how insightful the episodes have been so far. Both episodes have given me a different perspective on each issue. Really relevant, really helpful. Highly recommended! Can’t wait to hear more episodes.
