99: Enlighten Me on Human Trafficking - Part 2
Our kids are getting exposure - wouldn’t we rather it be from us instead of other kids at school? This is true of so many things, and trafficking is one of them. Actually, our youth are the biggest targets and victims of trafficking globally. Equipping them with the knowledge of what trafficking looks like is one of the most powerful things we can do to help fight it! That’s what Rasha and Youth Underground are here to do.
98: Enlighten Me on Human Trafficking - Part 1
“Sunlight is the best disinfectant.” That’s why I’ll keep talking about modern day slavery until I’m blue in the face, as long as anyone will listen! If you’ve been a long time listener, you’ve probably heard me cover sex slavery before. But did you know that that’s just one of many forms of human trafficking? It’s the year 2021 and yet, the trafficking and sale of human beings is at an all-time high. It’s for this reason that it’s vital for us to continue the conversation!
97: Enlighten Me on Essential Oils - Part 2
Essential oils can replace a lot of things in your home, whether it’s cleaning products, cosmetic products, or even some medicinal products! But there’s a problem - not all oils are created equally. Essential oils are a somewhat unregulated industry, so it’s important to know what to look for in the oils that you’re buying. That’s what Christa - the mom, wife, and essential oil expert - is back to tell us about today!
96: Enlighten Me on Essential Oils - Part 1
Coming at you today with all sorts of OILY goodness! You’ve probably heard of essential oils before as their popularity continues to grow. But, these are much more than a wellness trend. Did you know essential oils have actually been around for centuries?? These plant-powered oils have a lot of uses and benefits, and I wanted to get someone on the show who could teach us more about them!
95: Enlighten Me on Diversity in STEM - Part 2
Continuing education - have you heard of it? This term typically refers to careers like nursing or teaching to make sure professionals can stay up-to-date with the latest methods involved in their line of work. But, in my opinion, it’s something we ALL need, no matter the type of work we do! It’s been proven time and time again that continuing to learn, especially from people who are unlike us, is good for us! Kate Neally is back this week to tell us more about the research she’s been doing to support that theory.
