Resilience: Protect Yourself Against Radiation
We are exposed to exponentially more artificial radiation (non-native electromagnetic frequencies) than any previous generation. How do we protect ourselves? And what can we do to build resilience in the face of this phenomenon? Daniel DeBaun, the co-author of “Radiation Nation: The Fallout of Modern Technology” and the CEO of DefenderShield, has some practical tips for how to go about this.
He reviews studies that have been done that show the harm radiation can cause. He explains EHS, electromagnetic hypersensitivity and why this condition seems to afflict more women than men. He goes over why he’s not a fan of pendants or harmonizers for dealing with EMFs. Instead, he recommends simple switches with our devices and shoring up our health from the inside out.

Resilience: Raise Backyard Chickens
What does it take to raise chickens in the backyard? Is it hard? And what is the payoff (in addition to delicious and nutritious fresh eggs)? Today, Harvey Ussery, farmer and author of “The Small-Scale Poultry Flock”, offers a kind of “backyard chickens 101” class on today's episode and you get a front-row seat!
Harvey covers the ins and outs of backyard chickens: from how to get started, navigating your county’s regulations, how to source your chicks, how to avoid chicken coop “stink” and more. He discusses feed and the importance of allowing chickens to roam about and feast on earthworms, grubs, slugs, and snails. He talks about the value it brings to the entire household, in terms of understanding how nature works.All in all, he makes a great (and entertaining) case for giving backyard chickens a go.

Resilience: Take Charge of Your Health
These times are a collective wake up call, inviting us to take charge of our health. Paul Chek, author and the founder of the CHEK Institute, today explains why we must respond to this wake up call by listening to our body and learning from the four “doctors” (or teachers) – happiness, movement, diet, and quiet. He explains each in detail. Turning to these doctors helps us fulfill our dreams, nourish our bodies, strengthen our spirit and identify our purpose. They address our growth and health on all the levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Resilience: Get Growing
What would it look like if we worked together with our neighbors to foster food independence, build stronger communities, and improve our health? Zen Honeycutt, author and the Executive Director of Moms Across America, has an idea to get us growing food for our families and those around us, ensuring food access for all, which is especially important in times like these.
Zen explains the pilot program she is starting up to empower people to get growing their own food: the Neighborhood Food Network. She talks about the support offered to newbie gardeners including resources for when to plant, what to plant, how to handle pests, and more. She shares her vision for more connection with those around us and with the land that can yield food and joys to sustain us now and in the future.

Resilience: Buy Local
With expected food shortages, it is more important than ever to get to know our farmer and buy local. John Moody, well-known food grower, researcher, and author, explains today how a food buying club may be an excellent way to source real food close to home. He describes how food buying clubs operate and how they benefit both farmers and consumers.
He goes into why he started a food buying club many years ago and why you might want to start one, too. He shares the pros and cons of such clubs and how they help us avoid the fragile, single-point of failure that characterizes the industrialized food complex.

Is the Sun to Blame? Or is it the Sunscreen?
We have been told the sun is harmful and that we need to protect our skin from its rays. But the chemicals used in sunscreens are actually more dangerous for us than the sun; indeed sunscreen is harmful to all life on the planet.
Today, we gain insights on the problems with sunscreen and what to do about it from Dr. Elizabeth Plourde, a Clinical Laboratory Scientist and the author of "Sunscreens Biohazard 2: Proof of Toxicity Keeps Piling Up."
It's not the sun that causes skin cancer, Elizabeth explains, but rather the chemicals in the sunscreen that disrupt our body's balanced hormone ecosystem with carcinogenic toxins. She talks about the problem of sunscreen mixing with chlorine in swimming pools, turning them into a kind of "toxic soup". Elizabeth also explains why spray sunscreens are especially dangerous and why zinc oxide isn’t a particularly good type of protection, either.
But she does not leave us without hope. She offers a number of ideas for how to get a healthy amount of sun without burning. She describes how we can build up our sun exposure over time, the importance of coconut oil and a diet high in anti-oxidants and the benefits of the skin’s own melanin to provide protection.

Well researched and highly informative, this is one of my favourite podcasts!
I used to be such a huge fan and do like a lot of the health/habit podcasts. But thing that start to question so much of science is pretty wacky! Marcy Cravat and the Agenda 21 and non-sense that climate change is made up. Ugh!!! Have some self control. Weston A Price would be turning in his grave. It’s nice that you contribute to tree planting (for the health of the planet to counter climate change - good), but if you could cut some of the garbage I would stick with you.
Easy to gain information
I love this podcast and how the research is done so I can just listen and learn and the info is easily accessible to anyone without needing a degree to understand how to improve your health.
