Welcome to our podcast! Each week we’ll feature a short discussion on a broad range of relevant topics centered around fear, social justice, courage and transformation.

    Fitness, I Hate You Sometimes

    Fitness, I Hate You Sometimes

    Here's a non-exhaustive list of really annoying things that are exclusionary, mean, shame-inducing, or just plain stupid: 
    equinox not letting new members join in January the way people talk about food the way people talk about bodies all or nothing mentality the idea of excuses vs reasons the focus is all about smaller, tighter, fitter racism, white supremacy, and exclusion mean and toxic studio culturepeople not eating carbs fitness instructors, trainers, and health coaching trying to diagnose, treat and cure LITERALLY EVERYTHINGchildren & adolescents with body image issues people thinking they need workouts over therapy lack of representation This week's topics isn't pulled from one particular previous episode, but many that we’ve talked about through all seasons. 
    You can’t talk about fitness without talking about wellness, boundaries, fear and courage, privilege, cultural appropriation, yoga, kids in schools and the failure of PE class, body image, gender and sexuality, community…all of it. 

    We have a feeling this one may need a part two in the future...

    We're Canceling Cancel Culture

    We're Canceling Cancel Culture

    Is 'canceling' a thing we still do? What about calling out? Or calling in? Are we shaming and bullying or demanding accountability? 
    As promised, we're diving into some of our early episodes to explore how our opinions have changed. 2020 was an incredibly charged year for many reasons, and while we aren't carrying any regrets, we acknowledge that in some cases, there's way more nuance than we previously thought. We're not letting anyone off the hook here, rather we're exploring the kinds of skills needed to create actual and lasting change.

    Can Neuroplasticity Make Us Better People?

    Can Neuroplasticity Make Us Better People?

    Welcome back and Happy New Year! 

    Can you believe this marks the start of 6 seasons of Conversations in Courage? 
    To have almost 20,000 downloads in 80 episodes gives us an overwhelming sense of gratitude and pride for something we created at our kitchen table at the height of the pandemic in hopes that we could create a community of people interested in becoming better at dismantling systems of oppression. 
    So, thank you for being a part of this community! 

    In today's conversation, we cover how we look at goals at the beginning of the year as well as how we want to structure this season, using the principles of neuroplasticity as our guide.

    The Thanksgiving Episode

    The Thanksgiving Episode

    In this episode Ashley and Mark discuss their thoughts about the origin (and false narrative) around this US holiday as well as their challenge to themselves and each of you to use this as another catalyst for allyship; moving beyond the superficial into helping create a community and a world we can truly be thankful for.

    Cheers!
    Ashley and Mark

    This Is So Off Brand

    This Is So Off Brand

    Buckle up kids! This week we're talking about...pop culture? 

    We know, not necessarily a courageous conversation, but still hopefully entertaining nonetheless! 

    Topics include: 
    Politics (obviously)
    Love is Blind (have you seen this show?)
    Twitter (ugh) 

    We hope you enjoy! 
    Mark & Ash

Great topics & exploration

I love that there’s intelligence in these discussions, but also comfort with not having answers - able to model for how be IN the responsibility of curiosity and how that shapes actions. (5 stars, and I love enthusiasm, but it’s a little hard for my ears with how often Ashley interrupts Mark)
