    021 Katie Loncke

    Perhaps the most frequent questions I get asked is, “How do I show up in this moment?” To help us answer that is the amazing Katie Loncke of Buddhist Peace Fellowship.

    Katie is one of the most throw-down, committed activists I know. But what makes her unique is that she’s as committed to who she’s being as to what she’s doing. Katie helped create “Build Block Be,” a holistic framework for how we respond that acknowledges and celebrates all of our unique roles, strategies, and medicine as necessary and essential for how we bring forth collective liberation. Block is how we confront systemic harm, Build is how we create connection and collaborative tools, and Be is how we cultivate a capacity and resilience to show up for what’s needed.

    This conversation gave me hope - not just for what is possible, but for how it can feel and who we can be together.

    First of all, this is the first podcast we’ve ever recorded on a school bus, which felt appropriate given it was a conversation with the Nicole Cardoza, the founder of Yoga Foster, which is focused on making yoga in schools elementary. Nicole is a disruptor, a creator, and a connector who is constantly moving the line forward of what’s possible in wellness. She recently launched Reclamation Ventures, an impact fund dedicated to investing in underestimated entrepreneurs closing the wellness gap, and is innovating towards a more accessible wellness for everyone.

    In this episode, we're talking to the writer, runner and recovering addict, Charlie Engle who I met many years ago over our shared love for running, but whose story blew me away. Known to many as "The Running Man", Charlie managed to go from rock bottom to resilience many times over. And he continues to push the limits of what is possible for the human body and for human kind.

    018 Maytha Alhassen

    Dr Maytha Alhassen is a Syrian-American journalist, poet and scholar, working to bridge the worlds of social justice, academic research, popular culture and healing arts. And on this episode of CTZN podcast, she schools us on the history of immigration and white domination in America.

    May was born a learner only to grow up in a White America that treated her multi-linguistic skills as a deficiency. She always found school to be regressive and disappointing, and set out to learn all the truths on her own terms and is speaking them out loud.

    In this episode, May educates us on the real history of Muslim bans and immigration restrictions and how it's not about whether immigrants are welcome or not, it's about white supremacy. And it's about understanding our relationship to one another so that we can testify to justice with our words and actions.
