    #21 Fatal Conveniences: Anti-Aging Skincare: The Youthfulness Scam

    We are spoilt for choice when it comes to anti-aging skincare. Walk into any pharmacist, and you'll see shelves lined with promises. Fewer wrinkles, youthful, glowing skin are just some of the claims that these products make. But, when you dig a little deeper, the reality of these cosmetics isn't so pretty. 
    Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ 
    This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us.
    I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you.
    Aren't the advertisers and marketing teams of these skincare products smart? They've made us think that we're not beautiful and wonderful just as we are. I do get it though. Slowing down the signs of aging and feeling better about what you see in the mirror is something we all want. But you must remember that what goes ON your skin, goes IN your skin. 
    I'm going further than skin-deep in this segment to uncover some of the hidden toxic ingredients lurking in anti-aging skincare. I discuss mercury and Teflon, the two bad boys lurking within your cosmetics. I unravel just how they affect the body, and the proactive steps you can take to make better purchasing choices.

    #20 Suzanne Somers on Discovering Your Strength In a Sea of Adversity

    #20 Suzanne Somers on Discovering Your Strength In a Sea of Adversity

    Life is a journey that you can't plan out. When we hit inevitable roadblocks, it can be hard to see any other way than down. During these times of adversity, each of us needs to find our strength. One way to do that is to take from the negatives in your life and use it as fuel to create your power.
    WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW.
    On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too.
    Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. 
    Suzanne Somers is Hollywood royalty.
    In 1977, Suzanne became a TV icon. She played the cute blonde on the hit TV show, Three's Company. When the star asked for the same salary as her male counterparts, she was quickly booted from the show and labeled a "troublemaker."
    While the industry was busy shunning her, Suzanne was secretly reinventing herself. She had stopped focusing on what she didn't have and built upon what she did have- visibility. The show had made her a household name. So she took that name to pursue a dream career in Las Vegas. 
    Soon she was starring in a big production, with all the razzle-dazzle you'd expect in Vegas. By 1987, she was named Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year alongside the legendary Frank Sinatra.
    As 2001 rolled in, Suzanne had a significant setback. Her terrifying diagnosis of breast cancer forced her to take charge of her health, and her life. With her signature "I'll show you" attitude, she ultimately won the battle.
    In this eye-opening episode, we get a glimpse behind the curtain of what makes Suzanne such a successful entrepreneur and health advocate. We look at how she found strength and reinvented herself, even with the odds stacked against her. Suzanne also tells us the motives behind some of her most iconic books, Breakthrough, Tox-Sick, and Knockout. You don’t want to miss this conversation.
    Other Insightful in this episode:
    How Suzanne went from TV icon to entrepreneur Why you should listen to that voice in your head How Suzanne changed her perspective on the worst day of her life The murder of Dr. Gonzalez and Suzanne's brush with death  Suzanne's childhood from hell and the long road to forgiveness How to invest in making healthier choices  Why Suzanne fried an egg on the pavement Links and Resources:

    #19 Fatal Conveniences: Receipts: Handing Out Toxins

    #19 Fatal Conveniences: Receipts: Handing Out Toxins

    “Would you like your receipt, sir?” I always say no to this question. Why? Because that little slip of paper is full of toxic chemicals that seep into your skin. And most people have no idea how dangerous they are.
    Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™. This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health, and the health of the environment around us.
    I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps, so you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you, and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you.
    In this segment, we’re diving into the dangers of receipts. Grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, banks- they all give these to you. And once you’ve handled them and shoved them in your pocket or purse, the chemicals they contain are all over your skin. Once on your skin, they slowly seep into your bloodstream, messing with your health. 
    The thermal paper used for these receipts is saturated in BPA and BPS. These are hormone-interrupting chemicals that can do real damage once they hit your system. Take a listen to learn more about what these toxins do to your body and why you should avoid them at all costs. Just say no to receipts!
    Other questions I answer in this Fatal Conveniences™ segment:
    What are BPA and BPS, and what do they do to your body? Why do these toxins get on your skin so easily? What should you do to avoid thermal paper? What other things besides receipts use thermal paper? Links and Resources:

    #18 Jason Garner on Healing the Child Within

    #18 Jason Garner on Healing the Child Within

    There’s a lot of pain in the world. There’s a lot of anger, a lot of frustration. Maybe the reason why nothing is getting solved is because we’re all approaching problems from a childish perspective. Growing as a person isn’t just about healing your present wounds. It’s about healing the child within us, and finally moving on from past pain.
    WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW.
    On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. 
    If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society's Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you.
    From the outside, it seemed like Jason Garner had made it.
    Jason grew up with a single mom who worked three jobs just to get by. Living in a trailer, having to sell sticks of gum to buy hot lunch at school, he equated happiness with money. Like many of us, he assumed once he had money things would be so much easier. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t.
    In high school, Jason got his first real job working at a flea market. Being able to make twice the minimum wage and overtime meant big paychecks for a teen. He worked his way up to the beer tent, where he was tasked with recruiting local bands to bring in more customers. This organic experience gave birth to a lucrative career as a concert promoter.
    In 2009, Jason found himself successful, rich and the CEO of an international music company. Then the death of his beloved mother sent him into a tailspin. He began to realize that the life he created was based on a lie. Money wasn’t filling the void inside. 
    So he decided to completely change his life. But waking up not knowing who he was anymore was terrifying. So after some listless wandering, he found a spiritual teacher and began to meditate. That’s when the healing began.
    In this incredibly heartfelt conversation, Jason and I get into the hard reality that we all have a lost child inside of us calling the shots. It’s only when we explore that pain and figure out how to heal that we can start guiding our life with intention. Jason tells me why he decided to write his book And I Breathed, and how it’s facilitated his journey. This is a conversation everyone can benefit from. And it definitely parallels the woes of the world right now. 
    Other insightful tidbits in this episode:
    Jason’s story of growing up in poverty Why he equated pain with not having enough money From flea market worker to the man in charge How every argument you have with an adult is actually with a child How Jason ended up on his therapist’s floor The power of meditation Why a broken heart is a perfect place to start your transformation Why you should always ask questions in the heat of the moment Links:

    #17 Arthur Menard de Calenge on The Dangers of Electromagnetic Fields

    #17 Arthur Menard de Calenge on The Dangers of Electromagnetic Fields

    It's not easy to get away from technology these days. It's the cell phones in our pockets, to the surrounding WiFi and Bluetooth. We can't just switch it all off and shut it down. As our homes fill with these electronic devices, we're also inviting in an unwanted guest—the hidden dangers of electromagnetic fields.
    WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW,
    On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. 
    If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society's Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you.
    Arthur Menard de Calenge is a problem solver.
    It all started with dinner. The guests sat around the table and took out their phones. One by one, they placed them face down on the table. Before long, the conversation turned to, "Surely holding a radiation-emitting device so close to you can't be good for your health?" 
    At this party, Arthur's brain started ticking away, and he decided to do some research. So, what exactly was happening to his body if he kept his phone in his pants pocket all day?
    What he found blew his mind. Countless studies and peer reviews showing the potential harm that cell-phone electromagnetic fields (EMFs) could be having on your health. He saw words like "cancer," "cardiovascular disease," and even "reproductive issues." 
    Arthur has always understood how important maintaining your health is if you want to live a long, disease-free life. But to stop using technology altogether? Sorry folks, that isn't an option. 
    In a bid to protect the family jewels, he had to take matters into his own underpants. 
    Today, Arthur is the co-founder of Lambs, a stylish protective apparel brand that you'll want to wear. 
    Inspired by NASA's spacesuits, their coveted Faraday Line is a collection of comfortable T-shirts, beanies, and underpants that block wireless radiation. The super-soft, MET lab-tested cotton fabric is carefully interwoven with silver thread. Why is that great? Well, it blocks 99% of microwaves, like WiFi, Bluetooth, and cell phone radiation. It's also antibacterial.
    In 2019, Arthur's revolutionary endeavors won him the Forbes '30 under 30' title. But, he's not letting that get to his head. This "shy kid" is taking the world by storm. And Lambs is growing it's apparel range to also cater to women.
    Not only is Art a mastermind engineer, but for over ten years, he has been competing at the national level in Ski Racing and Karate. And, back in 2011, he was a French Collegiate Rowing Champion. 
    In this episode, Arthur and I are tuning in on a different kind of wavelength. We unpack the truths behind EMFs and the things we can do to reduce our daily exposure. Arthur also takes us below the belt and talks about how Lambs products work and why they're effective. This guy is an innovative genius. You're not going to want to miss this one.
     
    Other Significant Bits To Get Stuck Into:
    How Lambs became a global phenomenon  The scary reality behind our cell phones The unavoidable politics surrounding wireless radiation Taking a closer look at 5G How do electromagnets work? The electromagnetic effects on humans The terrifying fine-print in your cell phone's manual What is the solution? What's next for Lambs This episode’s  Fatal Conveniences™ topic: Sitting

    #16 Ronsley Vaz on Why Your Voice Matters

    #16 Ronsley Vaz on Why Your Voice Matters

    It can be scary to say what you're thinking, especially in today’s divided world. We can’t let the divisiveness that surrounds us stop us from speaking our minds. It’s natural to be afraid, but say it anyway. Be courageous. Speaking your truth gives the people around you the unspoken permission to do the same. And that is powerful. Your voice matters.
    WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW,
    On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time.
    If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society's Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you.
    Ronsley Vaz knows a thing or two about speaking his mind.
    I am so excited to introduce this episode’s guest to you. Ronsley Vaz is the curator of the first audio marketing agency in the world, Must Amplify. Ronsley and his team produce this podcast for me, but he does a whole lot more than that. Ronsley helps people find their voice, and then he amplifies it.
    Podcasting is so much more than having a conversation with someone you find interesting. It’s a way to get your perspective out into the world, and have others hear it and apply it to their own lives. It allows your listeners to learn from you, while you’re learning from them, and your guests. It’s such a full-circle way to bounce ideas off of like-minded, and not-so-like-minded people in order to see things in a new light.
    Ronsley knows all of this, but he didn’t always. Ronsley started his business journey so far away from the world of podcasting, it might as well have been in another universe. In 2013, his dream of owning and running a restaurant had failed miserably- and left him almost $500,000 in debt. He didn’t stay down for long though, and quickly started a new business venture- connecting talented chefs with time-poor entrepreneurs who needed a little help preparing healthy meals for the week. 
    This then led to starting his own podcast, Bond Appetit, which quickly gained an audience of over 1 million listeners in under 4 months and became Australia’s #1 food podcast. The technical side of podcast creation was the easy part for Ronsley, so he was puzzled when others came to him for help starting their own podcasts. 
    Then he had a lightbulb moment.
    Realizing he may have something to offer, he began selling courses on how to start your own podcast. It worked. He was able to pay off his massive restaurant debt in just over two years. The success of these courses led to his greatest project yet- Amplify, the world’s first audio marketing agency. Ronsley and his team help others find their voices, and he gives them a platform in which to amplify it. He’s done it for me- The Darin Olien Show is proof!
    In this conversation, we get into the importance of speaking your mind. Being courageous enough to put your truth out into the world is never arrogant. It’s critical, especially now, to understand why your voice matters. Ronsley tells us all about starting his successful business and how it led to creating We Are Podcast, the southern hemisphere’s first podcast conference. He also gives us some scoop on his passion project, the audio docuseries The Psychology of Entrepreneurship. You’re not going to want to miss this one.
