    Healthy From the Start: Catherine McCord Helps Kids and Parents Make Mealtime a Memorable, Educational Experience

    Healthy From the Start: Catherine McCord Helps Kids and Parents Make Mealtime a Memorable, Educational Experience

    Most new (and experienced!) parents are familiar with the scenario: you either don’t know what’s appropriate to feed your children, or their distinct preferences – dare we say pickiness! – make it difficult to sit down to the table without preparing a separate meal for each member of the family.

    Catherine McCord certainly found herself in that situation. While she’d spent her career creating fantastic meals for both restaurants and catering companies from coast to coast, she was stumped at how to best feed her first child. Out of that quandary Weelicious was born. What started as a blog aimed at helping parents teach kids how to eat well has now developed into several recipe books, and naturally the launch of a family-focused meal subscription box, One Potato. Not only is Catherine passionate about how to get kids involved in making healthy choices, but her focus on creating wholesome, organic food on a budget makes it more accessible as well.

    Being Your Own Best Advocate: Erin Gallagher, Co-Founder of Have Her Back

    Being Your Own Best Advocate: Erin Gallagher, Co-Founder of Have Her Back

    When Erin Gallagher was working at a PR firm during the height of the #MeToo movement, she knew that the fair treatment of women and marginalized communities was something that her workplace needed to emphasize for their clients. What began as an initiative started working for someone else soon became the impetus to start her own consultancy, one that focuses entirely on the equity of women and people of color.

    The fair treatment of BIPOC communities and women is long overdue, and the snail’s pace at which real change seems to occur can be disheartening. Erin’s venture, Have Her Back, has made its goal to partner with the biggest companies in the world in order to shake things up and effect change from the top down.

    To Double Back or Double Down: Shannon Watts Works to End Gun Violence in America

    To Double Back or Double Down: Shannon Watts Works to End Gun Violence in America

    Please be aware, this episode contains discussion of gun violence and suicide as it pertains to adults, children and teens.

    It may be surprising to learn that among national polls, 90% of Americans favor stronger gun laws that require background checks before any gun sale takes place. Even 80% of gun owners and 70% of NRA members agree. Why, then, does it seem like gun control is such a polarizing issue?

    When Shannon Watts watched the events of the Sandy Hook shooting unfold, and the consequent response that more guns were the answer, she knew in her gut that something had to change. Inspired by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, she founded Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. For far too long gun lobbyists have influenced politicians to make laws that favor the quick and easy access that essentially equates to more gun sales annually. Shannon’s organization, which has chapters in every state, continues its work to ensure that the 400 million guns in this country are subject to laws that keep citizens as safe as possible.

    Text the word, “Ready,” to 64433 to get involved.

    This is About Human Rights, Period: Opal Tometi of Black Lives Matter

    This is About Human Rights, Period: Opal Tometi of Black Lives Matter

    This week we’re thrilled to have Opal Tometi, activist, advocate and co-founder of Black Lives Matter.

    Growing up in Phoenix as a child of two immigrant parents, Opal saw firsthand the ways in which racism and immigration policy intermingled to complicate her parents’ safety and stability living in the U.S. As a young adult, a passion for immigration rights then gave way to an interest in the racial justice movement, spurred on by her work for such organizations as the Black Alliance for Just Immigration. The invaluable lesson that Opal has learned through this work is that suffering exists in silence; it is only through calling attention to the racial and social disparities that exist in our country that we can begin to shift towards “a multiracial democracy that works for all of us.”

    Progress Over Perfection: Sarah Paiji Yoo of Blueland

    Progress Over Perfection: Sarah Paiji Yoo of Blueland

    Let’s face it: the burdens of plastic consumption are overwhelming. We try our best to recycle, hoping our used ketchup bottles and takeout containers are reincarnated as earth-friendly reusable water bottles, but the truth is that countless amounts of plastics continue to clog landfills and waterways each year. When Sarah Paiji Yoo discovered that microscopic bits of plastic even make their way into our drinking water, she decided she had to do something.

    Sarah and her co-founder started Blueland as a starting point for changing the way we think about cleaning products, and the containers they come in. After discovering most cleaning products contain 90% water, Sarah envisioned a tablet that could then be mixed with water at home, minimizing the need to buy plastic-packaged products every time. The biggest lesson she’s learned? It’s nearly impossible to have a “perfect” solution to plastic at this point, but that’s not a reason to give up trying.

So inspiring!!!

LOOOOOVE these podcasts!! A friend recommended me to listen to Super Women by Rebecca Minkoff & now I can't stop listening to all of her interviews! I love that they are about 25' long not too short but not too long either. The timing is perfect and you can listen to one of them in the middle of your day when you need a little break. When I feel a bit down or that I need a little "push" this podcast HELPS SO MUCH! It's really empowering listening to many other women from many different industries and backgrounds! It's really amazing and the voice of Rebecca is also sweet and calming. I definitely recommend this podcast to everyone looking to empower themselves, to feel inspired and learn from others! 🥰
