    Episode 20 - Emily the Meme Queen

    Episode 20 - Emily the Meme Queen

    In this week’s episode I welcome my delightful sister, Emily, back on for the second time. It was so much fun to get to record a conversation with her, that in many ways is just like an everyday conversation we might have while going on a walk or just hanging out. During our discussion we talked about memes and internet memes as a subset of them, the beauty that was the social media platform Vine, how corporations are capable of coopting internet culture to sell us things, and much more.

    Before beginning the episode, I have a bit of explaining to do regarding why this episode is a week late. As some of you may know, especially if you listened to the episode with my fiancé, Viomar, we had been separated for over a year with no clear end in sight due the craziness of our two countries, and, due to travel restrictions put in place in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. At the time of recording the main part of this episode we had just purchased tickets for each of us to leave our countries and to be together in Ecuador as we await the next step in the process to get her a US Visa, and, I am ecstatic to let y’all know that I am recording this intro in Quito with Viomar by my side! I do not believe in making excuses, I missed my goal of publishing a new episode every Monday, but guess what? That isn’t going to stop me from re-dedicating myself to this project and to do it with even passion than before. So, keep an eye out for an extra special episode next week and now, without further ado, I present, Emily.

    Episode 19 - Rachael Reichenbach

    In this week’s episode I welcome Rachael Reichenbach who is, among many things, an organizer and facilitator of change work projects. It was a joy to spend some time talking with her, and to understand her viewpoints and how she got to be where she is.

    Episode 18 - Nina and Yvan

    Episode 18 - Nina and Yvan

    In this episode I welcome Nina and Yvan who are two Houston-based community organizers that I found through the social media account of one of their projects. That project is the HTX Community Fridge Project (https://houstonfridges.cargo.site/) which is an amazing community based effort to provide solutions for people in need of fresh food. It was an absolute pleasure to spend some time talking with these powerful women, to better understand their Community Fridge project, and to better understand what makes them tick. Their energy, drive, and dedication to caring for those around them is truly inspiring. During our discussion we talked about how the community fridge project works, other community based food insecurity solutions, the importance of grassroots direct action, the major influences in their lives and much more. I will be posting links to both their website as well as a few other’s that came up during our discussion in the blog post and the social media posts for this episode. This episode was a call to action for me (as I would like it to be for everyone who listens) and will document my commitment to volunteering in a blog post later this week. I continue to see these conversations as valuable to have and to share, with the hope that they inspire and encourage others. Please enjoy my conversation with Nina and Yvan.

    Episode 17 - Mary

    Episode 17 - Mary

    In this week’s episode I welcome my dear friend and former high school English teacher, Mary. It was such a pleasure to get to spend some time talking with her after so many years of not being in touch. I am so grateful for the time she allowed to record the show, and even more so for the impact she had on my life as an educator. During our discussion we managed to find our way to many different topics, including, the state of education from her viewpoint, the difficulty of dealing with negative self-image issues, the importance of being kind and even a bit of how we see the sociopolitical landscape. In listening to this episode to edit it, it became clear to me how brave Mary is in her life, whether she sees it or not, and I quite proud to know her and to have had her for a teacher. I continue to see these conversations as valuable to have and to share, with the hope that they inspire and encourage others. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Mary.

    Episode 16 - Hans

    Episode 16 - Hans

    In this week’s episode I welcome my dear friend, Hans, with whom I used to work with in Long Beach, California. I am grateful to him for his kindness and his openness in sharing during our conversation. We covered several different topics, including, the importance of seeking fulfillment in what we do, the value of having principles in life, the power of being able to re-frame problems on the fly, and much more. During our talk, I express many opinions which I believe come from my own particular place of privilege. For instance, my view on being selective in what I do to earn money, is only possible from a distinctly advantageous position compared to someone who does not have the same support system I do. I believe it is important to understand privilege in the effort to cultivate empathy for those who have less privilege. I continue to see these conversations as valuable to have and to share, with the hope that they inspire and encourage others. Please enjoy my conversation with Hans.

    Episode 15 - Nithin

    Episode 15 - Nithin

    In this week’s episode I welcome my dear friend, Nithin, whom I met while we were both living on the Galapagos Islands. We have been fortunate enough to travel with each other along the coast of Ecuador and continue a fascinating friendship that grows in depth and meaning. I am immensely grateful to him for his time and his openness in sharing during our conversation. We found our way to talking about many different topics, including, his current work at a start up with an interesting vision, some struggles he has faced in life, meditation, dealing with the expectations of society, and, cultivating a rewarding relationship with parents. I continue to believe that conversations like these are valuable to have and to share, with the hope that they inspire and encourage others. Please enjoy my conversation with Nithin.
