    Ian Somerhalder on Producing Kiss The Ground, Climate Change, and The Launch of Brothers Bond

    Ian Somerhalder on Producing Kiss The Ground, Climate Change, and The Launch of Brothers Bond

    Although you may know Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore from Vampire Diaries or Boone from Lost, he’s actually embarking on his most passionate endeavors to date as an environmentalist and humanitarian. He executive produced the environmental documentary KISS THE GROUND, which landed on Netflix in September 2020, and focuses on raising awareness and education on the positive impacts of regenerative farming for climate change. And just this weekend, he launched Brothers Bond, a bourbon company, with Vampire Diaries co-star Paul Wesley as an ode to their bourbon drinking days on the show. The company did a pre-sale which shattered records and a portion of the proceeds will go toward regenerative farming practices and combating climate change. In this episode, Ian tells us all about his new chapter, why he needs everyone to watch Kiss The Ground, and how he started a business with purpose and passion.

    Is Bee Propolis The Next Wave of Health and Beauty? Featuring Beekeeper’s Naturals Founder Carly Stein

    Is Bee Propolis The Next Wave of Health and Beauty? Featuring Beekeeper’s Naturals Founder Carly Stein

    Carly Stein is the founder of Beekeeper’s Naturals, a company on a mission to reinvent your medicine cabinet with natural remedies from bees. After having chronic tonsillitis her whole life and a series of health scares that couldn’t be helped through traditional antibiotics, Carly discovered bee propolis, a compound produced by bees and known for its healing abilities, that completely healed her overnight. With little notoriety of propolis in the US, Carly left her job as a trader at Goldman Sachs to start what would later become a bee empire. Today, Beekeeper’s Naturals is committed to providing the cleanest, most powerful solutions to modern health issues - like brain fog and scratchy throats - through using unique remedies from the beehive, like royal jelly and propolis. They’re loved by celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Lily Collins, are sold in Targets and Whole Foods nationwide, and Carly’s landed a spot on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. In this episode, Carly gives us Hive 101 and takes us through all the beneficial compounds found in the hive (no, we’re not just talking about honey!), how she turned how passion for beekeeping into a company, and how you can play a role in saving the bees.
