    Episode #20: Dr. Brandi Jackson & Dr. Brittani James

    On this episode of The Catalyze Podcast I interview Dr. Brittani James and Dr. Brandi Jackson, twin sisters, physicians and co-founders of a pre-med mentoring website called Med Like Me. Born in Twinsburg, Ohio, the twin doctors graduated from Cornell University in 2010, before attending medical school. Dr. Brandi graduated from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School and Dr. Brittani graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School. Both attended residency at the same hospital- the University of Illinois at Chicago. Brandi became the chief resident of psychiatry and Brittani the chief resident of family medicine.

    Today Dr. Brandi is an attending psychiatrist and assistant professor at Rush University Medical Center. Dr. Brittani is an attending family medicine doctor and assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Both treat underserved patients on Chicago’s south side.

    Dr. Brandi and Dr. Brittani created Med Like Me as a source of advice and practical information for underrepresented minorities who are interested in becoming physicians. The doctors answer reader-submitted questions and provide an insight about the journey. Their mission is simple- to make the path easier for the next generation of diverse doctors, and in so doing, change the face of medicine as we know it.

    Episode #19: Hailey Jonoubeh- On Tarot, Intuition, and Being an Empath

    Episode #19: Hailey Jonoubeh- On Tarot, Intuition, and Being an Empath

    In this episode of The Catalyze Podcast I interview Hailey Jonoubeh. Hailey Jonoubeh is an intuitive tarot reader, empath, and healer. After being given her first deck at 12 years old, tarot soon became a passion that she has dedicated her life to ever since. Hailey’s tarot readings are geared toward helping you along your journey of self-healing and empowerment. It is her life’s work to help usher you through your own powerful transformation to authentic and aligned living. Her reading style is gentle, straightforward, and intuitively channeled through spirits and guides. As a multi-ethnic person of color, who is also first-generation American, Hailey offers a unique and inclusive perspective on the tarot for anyone who is new or familiar with it. Often incorporating elements of the arts in her readings, Hailey’s intuitive practice is inspired by music, nature, and film.

    Our conversation covers Hailey's journey into tarot, channeling, being an empath, connecting with your intuition, archetypes, and so much more!

    Episode #18: Elliott Cisneros- On Standing in Solidarity, Standing in Truth, and Knowing Yourself

    Episode #18: Elliott Cisneros- On Standing in Solidarity, Standing in Truth, and Knowing Yourself

    In this episode of The Catalyze Podcast, I interview Elliott Cisneros of The Sum. During our conversation we discuss the importance of doing one's own inner work, allyship, how to stand in solidarity with other's, using one's privilege in allyship, and his work with The Sum.

    Elliott comes from a bi-cultural, biracial background with his father's line coming from Hispano ancestry in what is now New Mexico and his mother's people coming originally, from the Mayflower. This internal crossroads of diversity and power was one of the sparks for his passion for his learning and work at an early age.

    Elliott began his teaching career on the Navajo reservation in special education. He directed a school district transition program serving students with disabilities for 8 years and went on to direct the Human Rights Office for the City or Fort Collins. He taught social justice classes at Naropa University for 6 years, and worked as a school principal both at a predominantly Latino elementary school, and at a progressive experiential middle school. He founded The Sum in 2006 (www.thesum.org).

    After James Fields drove his car into a crowd in Charlottesville VA, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 40 others, Elliott moved to Charlottesville, in a camper. Here, he has started The Sum Study Center to support people's internal learning and empowerment across the full political spectrum (Alt-right to Antifa). He has partnered with the Heather Heyer Foundation to create a youth program called Heyer Voices (www.heyervoices.org). Elliott founded an intentional community that represents a cross-racial, multicultural, interfaith and queer collaboration called Araminta Village (www.aramintavillage.org). And he has established a faith community, and faith community model based on the "sacredness of welcome to all" called The Welcome Circle (www.thewelcomecircle.org). He is currently working on two books: “The Power of our Differences” and “Sex and Social Justice.” In alignment with the Power of Difference Model which he developed in collaboration with Dr. Carla Sherrell, Elliott designed the Power of Difference Assessment (online), created the Power of Difference Video Project, and pioneered the online Power of Difference Online Certification.

Great podcast highlighting social change makers and entrepreneurs

The Catalyst Podcast presents inspiring stories about various change makers and what motivates them to make a difference in the world.

Ranging from brewers and artisans, to lifestyle coaches and NGO founders, these social entrepreneurs reveal the innovation, creativity, and determination that each of us can hone in to generate a positive impact on society.

Camila is an excellent host, guiding the discussion in such a way that we can understand how these business models were conceived or what experiences drove the guest speakers into action.

I look forward to hearing new episodes each week and to learning more about other social change makers.
