    Ziya Tong: Shiny Plastic People

    Ziya Tong: Shiny Plastic People

    Ziya Tong returns to the show this week! In case you're not familiar, she is an award-winning author and broadcaster, best known for her work with Discovery’s flagship science show, Daily Planet, and NOVA ScienceNow on PBS. She is the author of the best-selling book The Reality Bubble, which was shortlisted for Canada’s most prestigious non-fiction literary prize, and won the Lane Anderson Award for best science writing. Ziya served as the Vice Chair of WWF Canada and currently serves as a trustee of WWF International. Ziya co-directed a new documentary called Plastic People: The Hidden Crisis of Microplastics with Ben Addelman, and she stars alongside Executive Producer Rick Smith.
    "We live in a time where some of our greatest threats are invisible. Like the climate crisis, microplastic pollution cannot be: it spans the globe, chokes up rivers and animals, and insidiously infiltrates the human body. As a science journalist and author, I have been reporting on the threat of plastic for almost two decades and believe that now more than ever, we need to reveal the connection between planetary health and human health, which is why I’ve put my own body on the line for the “Plastic People” project. As part of my journey, I will test my own home, my own food, and even my own feces for microplastics. We are very fortunate to also have a world-first for this project, as we meet surgeons and scientists who are probing the human brain to reveal whether microplastics can cross the blood-brain barrier. The results of testing here will be incredibly significant."
    Jann, Caitlin and Ziya discuss the dangers of microplastics in our bodies and the environment. Ziya shares that microplastics are found everywhere, including in our blood, placenta, and even the human brain. They discuss the impacts to our health such as increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and cancer. Ziya emphasizes the need for individual and collective action to reduce plastic consumption and advocates for joining organizations that are working towards solving the plastics crisis.
    Ziya and her team are still raising money for the documentary's impact campaign and they plan to release a podcast to delve deeper into the dark secrets and stories of the plastics industry. You can support the campaign HERE.

    Tarot Lori: Burn Your Sh*t

    Tarot Lori: Burn Your Sh*t

    In this episode, Jann Arden, Caitlin Green and Sarah Burke speak to Lori Dyan, also known as Tarot Lori, a tarot card reader with 35 years of experience. They discuss the origins of Lori's interest in tarot, the misconceptions surrounding tarot reading, the popularity of moon rituals and the upcoming release of Lori's book, 'Burn Your Sh*t: The Life-Changing Magic of Rituals.' The conversation highlights the importance of rituals and the role of tarot in providing guidance and empowerment. They explore the idea that humans have the potential to expand and be braver in their lives, and how rituals like tarot and astrology can help connect us. The conversation concludes with a tarot card reading for each of the hosts.
    This week’s episode is brought to you by the home and auto insurance brand Canadians trust most—Intact Insurance.
    A note from Lori on her upcoming book:
    Rituals are routines infused with loving intention. The empowerment and unburdening they provide is immense and undeniable. Whether you’re releasing something (or someone) with a Full Moon ritual, elevating your morning skincare routine with a ceremony of self-love or celebrating a milestone moment, rituals can enrich—and even transform—your life. 
    Burn Your Sh*t guides readers to discover what is possible (and the work that needs to be done) with rituals to help them step into their potential and make their own magic.
    Full Moons are an opportunity to let go of limiting beliefs, negative self-talk or any other bad mojo that’s hanging around. Crystals can promote healing and boost manifesting. Sacred geometry offers ancient wisdom to amplify ambitions. Sleeping on top of intentions can turn your life around. 
    You can easily customize rituals to meet you where you’re at in any given moment—from fuelling your body to finding your soulmate. With the right rituals, you can face challenges with clarity, connect to your inner wisdom and become the designer of your dreams.
