    334) Melanie Yazzie: Building Indigenous solidarity and power

    334) Melanie Yazzie: Building Indigenous solidarity and power

    What does it mean for those working within academia to become scholar-activists—going beyond working to rise within the ranks of educational institutions to engage with and help enact change within their communities? And why is maintaining an internationalist lens critical for those wanting to support Indigenous rights, sovereignty, and liberation?
    In this episode, we welcome Melanie Yazzie Ph.D., a citizen of the Navajo Nation. She is Assistant Professor of Native American Studies and American Studies at the University of New Mexico. She specializes in Navajo/American Indian history, political ecology, Indigenous feminist and queer studies, and theories of policing and the state.
    She organizes with The Red Nation, and she is the author of Red Nation Rising: From Bordertown Violence to Native Liberation.
    The song featured in this episode is The Suicide from Hometown, provided by Indigenous Cloud.

    333) David Boarder Giles: A mass conspiracy to feed each other

    333) David Boarder Giles: A mass conspiracy to feed each other

    How do we make sense of the contradiction of having both excess food and food insecurity at the same time? And how do counterculture movements like Food Not Bombs prefigure the alternative worlds that are possible?
    In this episode, we welcome David Boarder Giles, the author of A Mass Conspiracy to Feed People: Food Not Bombs and the World-Class Waste of Global Cities, and an anthropologist of food, waste, cities, and social movements who teaches at Deakin University in Melbourne.
    He focuses on the relationships between economy, identity, and affect or feeling, and his writing is largely organized around three intersecting topics: the role of abject economies in global cities, globalized efforts at municipal governance, and emergent networks and counterpublics cultivated within those abject economies. For him, these are the topics that are the most interesting and the most pressing.

    332) Konda Mason: Holding love capital sacred

    332) Konda Mason: Holding love capital sacred

    How has philanthropy traditionally worked to uphold the extractive economic system? And what does it mean to recognize the various forms of capital that we have beyond financial capital?
    In this episode, we welcome Konda Mason, a social entrepreneur, Earth and social justice activist, spiritual teacher, and the president of Jubilee Justice, a nonprofit working to bring economic equity to BIPOC farmers and ecological sustainability by introducing an innovative way of growing rice while convening deeply transformational journeys—exploring the intersection of land, race, money, and spirit.
    The song featured in this episode is Little Girl by Lil Idli.

    331) Monica Gagliano: Regenerating the human spirit

    331) Monica Gagliano: Regenerating the human spirit

    How does viewing the Earth as an embodiment of imagination invite us to conceptualize or feel our ecological crises in different ways? And what does it mean to be more imaginative with our scientific inquiries—while also remaining a humility to recognize the limitations of this particular lens?
    In this episode, we welcome Monica Gagliano, the author of Thus Spoke the Plant and a Research Associate Professor in evolutionary ecology at Southern Cross University, where she directs the Biological Intelligence (BI) Lab as part of the Diverse Intelligences Initiative of the Templeton World Charity Foundation.
    Gagliano's work has extended the concept of cognition (including perception, learning processes, memory) in plants. By re-kindling a sense of wonder for this beautiful place we call home, she is helping to create a fresh imaginative ecology of mind that can inspire the emergence of truly innovative solutions to human relations with the world we co-inhabit.

    330) Fariha Róisín: Finding healing beyond the wellness-industrial-complex

    330) Fariha Róisín: Finding healing beyond the wellness-industrial-complex

    How have the wellness and beauty industries thrived off of a dominant culture of non-acceptance? And what might be the healing potentials that lie in plant medicines—when their sacred origins and rituals are honored and respected?
    In this episode, we welcome Fariha Róisín. As a multidisciplinary artist who is a Muslim queer Bangladeshi, she is interested in the margins, in liminality, otherness, and the mercurial nature of being.
    Róisín is the author of the poetry collection How To Cure A Ghost, as well as the novel Like A Bird. Her upcoming work is a book of non-fiction entitled, Who Is Wellness For? and her second book of poetry is entitled Survival Takes a Wild Imagination.
    The song featured in this episode is Little Girl by Lil Idli.

    329) Kristina Lyons: Soil as cultural, relational, historical

    329) Kristina Lyons: Soil as cultural, relational, historical

    What does it mean to "see" soil beyond their chemistry and biology—understanding also their cultural, relational, and historical embodiment? How have Colombian small and Indigenous farmers resisted—and thrived—even amidst decades of armed conflicts, scientific colonization, and epistemological and ontological violences?
    In this episode, we welcome Dr. Kristina Lyons, an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, whose current research is situated at the interfaces of socio-ecological conflicts, transitional justice, community-based forms of reconciliation, militarized psychologies, and science and legal studies in Colombia.
    Her book, Vital Decomposition, weaves together an intimate ethnography of two kinds of practitioners: state soil scientists and small farmers who attempt to cultivate alternatives to commercial coca crops and the military-led, growth-oriented development paradigms intended to substitute them.

Intelligent, heart-filled conversations

I enjoy the depth of this podcast with its diversity of guests and topics. Kamea is a stellar interviewer and asks thought-provoking questions while also practicing deep listening. As a result, I’ve grown in my understanding of ecology, the human spirit and true wellness. I also appreciate the lack of ads with this being a community-sponsored show.

Intelligent and politically and spiritually aware

People think “radical” means progressive or fringe, but it really means “back to the root.” That constant sense of rootedness and purpose is only one of the things this profound podcast gets right.
