    Episode 34 - Infertility & Miscarriage with Therapist Margrit Boghosian

    Few things in life hurt so deeply as watching (what seems like) everyone else experience that which you so deeply desire, what society expects you to achieve with ease. Infertility is often a lonely and isolating experience, and many women suffer in silence and even shame, which can prevent them from receiving the very support they need most. In this episode, Therapist Margrit Boghosian shares her painful, yet ultimately hopeful journey through infertility and miscarriage to the eventual birth of her three children.

    Episode 32 - Eating Disorders & Body Image with Elizabeth Megrabyan

    Episode 32 - Eating Disorders & Body Image with Elizabeth Megrabyan

    How do we, as a society, measure a woman's value? How should it be measured? How do we treat women who don't look the way society says they should? And what kind of damage are next-to-impossible standards doing to young girls and women of all ages? Elizabeth Megrabyan joins us for an honest and unflinching look at the price we sometimes pay in order to pursue perfection. [Editor's note: while eating disorders also affect men, the societal pressures still disproportionately fall on women.]
    If you think you may have an eating disorder, please contact the National Eating Disorders hotline at 1-800-931-2237 or visit their website here: NEDA

    Episode 31 - Wilderness Living and Survival Skills with Dr. Nicole Apelian

    Episode 31 - Wilderness Living and Survival Skills with Dr. Nicole Apelian

    Diasporan Armenians often go to great lengths to "stay connected to our roots," but there are many different kinds of roots, one of the most fundamental being our connection to Nature itself. What are we missing when we live our lives in concrete boxes, bombarded by electronics, seeking communion via social media? Who would we be if we allowed ourselves to feel the soil beneath our feet? To drink in the stars in the nighttime sky? Dr. Nicole Apelian shares what she has learned from living with African tribes whose way of life is in harmony with nature, along with the sacred medicine of healing plants, and the secret to re-setting our souls and reconnecting with our essence.

    Episode 30 - Greenbar Distillery with Co-Founder Melkon Khosrovian

    Episode 30 - Greenbar Distillery with Co-Founder Melkon Khosrovian

    Armenian wine making dates back 4000 years BC, so it's safe to say that our people have a long history of experimenting with intoxicating beverages and flavors. Influenced by his family's tradition of brandy making, Melkon (along with his wife) reinterprets flavor profiles of traditional spirits using the environment as his guide, in more ways than one. Listen, be inspired, and experience them for yourself.

    Episode 29 - The Naghash Ensemble with Conductor John Hodian

    One of the greatest gifts we can bestow on our culture is to make our historical past relevant by merging it with the present day. Composer John Hodian guides us through his process of rediscovering Armenian music, infusing it with world music influences, and welding that combination to ancient lyrics, resulting in a genre that defies categorization.
