    Episode 34: Chloe Babauta

    Part 2 of our 3 part Maga'Håga Rising series! Our next #gorgeousguest is Chloe Babauta – writer, editor, and co-founder of Maga'håga Rising.   We were inspired by Chloe’s Youtube video “Let’s talk about Chamoru identity: Diaspora vs. Guam raised Chamorus". While we had the chance to tap into both perspectives of this often discussed topic, we even uncovered several heartfelt gems about the power of unconditional love found in unconventional upbringings.

    Episode 31: Roxanne Roncal from Better In Doses

    Episode 31: Roxanne Roncal from Better In Doses

    We chatted with the founder of Better in Doses, Roxanne Roncal and explored all things that make her platform “psychedelically delicious.”

    While the mass may believe the topic to be taboo, we agree that psychedelic culture is slowly becoming more mainstream, and it’s influence should be openly talked about. In this episode, hear more about what inspired Roncal’s platform and it’s purest existence. We even explore topics such as love, art, spirituality, synchronicities and our personal favorite, connectedness.
