    Ep. 350 Lisa Bronner: Soap and Soul, Minding Your Mind, Your Body, and Your Spirit with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap⁠

    Ep. 350 Lisa Bronner: Soap and Soul, Minding Your Mind, Your Body, and Your Spirit with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap⁠

    On this episode of Green Planet Blue Planet, Host ⁠Julian Guderley⁠ speaks with Lisa about her book, ⁠“Soap and Soul, Minding Your Mind, Your Body, and Your Spirit with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap⁠.”  Fortunately for us, Lisa found her voice and has picked up on the family business of not only making natural products but also to provide others with  a guide on holistic living.

    About Lisa Bronner

    Having been an avid lifelong reader, Lisa wrote her first book in 2023 as a part companion guide to using her family’s soaps and part green living how-to with stories and memories of the entire Bronner soap-making family. An educator, she taught high school English and journalism after switching from  Civil Engineering to an English degree in college, but she still weaves numbers and words. Lisa is a married mom of three nearly grown children who says her best time of day is gathering with family around the dinner table.

    What’s in Dr. Bronner Soap?

    Do you know what you’re bringing into your home? From household goods to body products, what’s in your soap?

    In the post-war 1940s, while Hollywood and corporate spinners hyped cigarettes, alcohol, canned food, and cleaning agents, Master Soapmaker Dr. E.H. Bronner stepped away from the crowd. He began asking questions about household chemicals and telling another story promoting natural products and a return to nature. 

    Now, 78 years later, Lisa Bronner, granddaughter and 5th generation soapmaker, has written a holistic guide on natural products, Dr. Bronner’s magic soap, that also provides recipes for cleaning solutions. 

    Recognizing that many are aware of the problems, as seen in the rising awareness in cultural conversations, Lisa doesn’t have to convince anyone. “Our bodies are going haywire,” she says. It’s to begin  the next conversation of what to do about it. 

    Many of us, especially in the United States, have been raised on a culture of product. Busy mothers were convinced that they were doing the right thing for their families by buying the brand names propagandized by corporate daytime TV sponsors and Good Housekeeping ads.

    As a result, many people grew up instinctively using the same products and following the same habits. Lisa says the challenge today is pointing out the “invisible.”

    “The other day, I was taking a walk with my neighbor. And I live out in the country with acres between our houses, and we were walking down the street and I could smell somebody's laundry. I was acres away from a house and I could smell their laundry…Can you imagine how intense those fumes must be in the house or right outside the house? And my neighbor didn't even notice the scent, because it's such a normal thing.”

    As Dr. Bronner’s company marks its 75th anniversary, join Julian and Lisa for a clean and intriguing discussion on the evolution of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap and the new guide to help people move to natural solutions.

    Ep. 349 Monitoring Biodiversity with Dr. Kat Bruce

    Ep. 349 Monitoring Biodiversity with Dr. Kat Bruce

    Realizing that by definition the Classics, Greek and Latin, really wouldn’t set her up for the future, Dr. Kat Bruce dropped out of Oxford and went as far away as she could, ending up in the Ecuadorian Amazon.



    All that learning of Greek verse by sound, strangely and surprisingly, translated into an “amazing” transferable skill of identifying birds by their calls - 150 different birds over three months.But moreover, Kat’s life in an Amazon indigenous community 100 miles from the nearest road, with no running water and no electricity, changed her life for good. For a few years she returned to the Amazon to run around counting birds and being part of a few expeditions - including building balsa wood rafts and floating town a tributary of the Amazon for a few weeks.And then somebody pointed out she should probably go back to the university to get a degree of some kind, before it was too late. She earned a wildlife biology degree with the intention of going back to hang out in the Amazon. But Kat Bruce doesn’t just hang out. Once she starts things she goes further than their conclusion. She continued studying and left only after receiving her PHD where she modeled a particular system of ant plants - plants in the Amazon that live symbiotically with ants. And she joined the rowing club and combined it with research in eDNA, and this became the evolution of her first start up company, NatureMetrics.In the discussion on this episode of Green Planet Blue Planet, Host Julian Guderley follows Kat’s path to collecting eDNA, while combining it with a passion for rowing.She joined a rowing team that was part of an initiative to gather data on the threats to biodiversity - pollution, plastics, sound pollution, but she recognized the need to tell the stories about what is possible to do to bring back biodiversity, clean up our seas and to restore the ecosystems.So she put together her own ocean rowing team of women who work in the fields of nature and climate to row around Great Britain in 2024, while collecting all the data and telling stories.To hear more about this journey, the outcomes and upcoming plans, listen to the entire podcast on the Better Worlds YouTube channel.

Her particular interest lies in how to bring together the worlds of research, industry and policy to drive forward advances in our capacity to monitor the natural world. Through her work in the EU COST Action project DNAqua-net, she actively works to help establish best practice for the use of DNA monitoring tools for aquatic bio-monitoring in Europe and beyond.

    Ep. 348 Kosha Joubert: Healing Collective Trauma and Restoring Our Connectedness

    Ep. 348 Kosha Joubert: Healing Collective Trauma and Restoring Our Connectedness

    Kosha Jourbet, designer of eco-villages, learned how little she needed and how generous people are as she regularly walked the African coast in an impoverished community with no money. It was a firsthand experience with nature. She slept on the beach on a thin blanket and had very few clothes. Her priorities were finding water and food. She swam across big rivers. Ultimately, she broke down the barriers between nature and herself.

    “I was afraid of nature. How many of us are afraid of nature? We're afraid of spiders. We're afraid of scorpions. But we're also just afraid of space, or the ocean or the sky, or sleeping alone in the dark or walking in the dark or crossing a river. Breaking down those fears inside myself was amazing. I got to know the night sky, I got to know the beauty of flowers of the ripples of the ocean, waking up in the early dawn, watching the sunrise, walking down the beach and finding the most beautiful shell as if it was a gift of the ocean.”

    Kosha’s journey took her into her African homeland reinstated a trust in herself. Later in life she met an indigenous leader of the Maori in New Zealand, who spoke these words: In my tradition, we do not need to earn a living, because simply by being born on the planet into a body, we have our earth right to be alive.

    How many of us still have yet to learn this? Join Kosha in a conversation with Green Planet Blue Planet Host Julian Guderley exploring the simple necessities of life and the ease of building eco-villages to meet the needs of humans and nature.

    Ep. 347 A Crisis in Leadership: What’s holding you back? with Satyen Raja

    Ep. 347 A Crisis in Leadership: What’s holding you back? with Satyen Raja

    A Crisis in Leadership: What’s holding you back? 

    Whether it's climate change, politics or economics, our business world has a universal, widespread crisis in leadership.

    In this episode of Green Planet Blue Planet, Satyen Raja, author of Transcendental CEO and founder of WarriorSage, explores this leadership crisis with Host Julian Guderley observing the patterns among those who are called to business leadership that cause them to lose their way and disconnect  from spirit, heart and soul as though they are detriments to business success. The opposite is true, Satyen says. Enlightenment leads to the Greater Good.

    Satyen and his wife Suzanne are the founders of Sage Warriors, whose mission is to enlighten, unify and mobilize leaders for higher purpose. The discussion winds through benevolent AI and what's needed to ensure AI is evolved for a higher cause, and the trimtabs to a better business environment.

    “We have all the knowledge, we have all the intellect. We have the incredible scholarly capacity of brilliant minds around the world, to be able to have brilliant creations and technologies, we have all the technology on the planet we need. We actually have all the resources, all the money, all the human power that we need. What we're lacking is the enlightenment of our leadership.” 

    As a transcendental leadership coach, Satyen and his wife Suzzanne guide CEOs and business leaders to their purpose so they can do it, and down the path to transformation and spiritual evolution so they may lead a fuller life with improved relationships.

    WarriorSage is based on five pillars: power, heart, freedom, flow, and wisdom, and questions. . Tune in to Better Worlds YouTube Channel to hear this insightful conversation focusing on the deepest purpose, crafting teams with heart and leading organizations with a vision that evokes the collective spirit to move forward.For more on Leadership Enlightenment, WarriorSage and Satyen, visit WarriorSage.com.

    Ep. 345 Geoship CEO Morgan Bierschenk on Affordable Natural Homes

    Ep. 345 Geoship CEO Morgan Bierschenk on Affordable Natural Homes

    Geoship is working to replace 2.2 TRILLION concrete blocks a year with geodesic components made from bioceramics. CEO Morgan Bierschenk, inspired by the vision of Buckminster Fuller, is uniting communities through experimentation and innovation reshaping the way we live with resilient materials that stand the test of time!

    For the last seven years, Geoship, @Geoship has created a platform for Beirschenk’s ultimate goal: To build regenerative villages and help people live in a regenerative way, not just a different type of architecture.

    "With 2.2Trillion Geodesic components, it's like a home for every human in 1-2 years" - Morgan Beirschenk

    Through his R&D, the ceramic dome rose to the top as the most efficient structure, flowing from the original mission of Buckminster Fuller and executing the vision through the use of 21st Century materials and manufacturing technology.

    In this episode of Green Planet Blue Planet, Host Julian Guderley speaks with Morgan about the synergies that happen as a result of GeoShip’s process to innovate a bioceramic material for dome construction.

    The discussion leads to how to come together in a digital space that will build relationships and lead to the creation of villages through a democratized design build process, and ultimately get, to scale to reduce home costs to about $80 a square foot, and achieve a 95% reduced carbon footprint. The structures are fireproof, hurricane and earthquake resistant and the health benefits are real, with 100% non-toxic materials. The ceramics and the fractal geometry work together to create a sense of balance that uniquely combines low cost, sustainable, resilient and healthy attributes for home building, ecological and regenerative living.

    Tune in to hear more about the entire process unique to GeoShip, as well as Morgan’s philosophies decentralized home building to benefit villages. Subscribe to the Better Worlds YouTube Channel for shows and events focused on climate action and building better worlds.
