    In a lonely, divided world, can tea help bring people together?

    In a lonely, divided world, can tea help bring people together?

    Tea has been bringing people together for hundreds of years, but could its role in facilitating connection and celebrating culture may be more important than ever in today’s siloed, socially-distanced world?
    Amber Jackson is a food scientist, entrepreneur, and the Owner and Chief Operating Officer of The Black Leaf Tea and Culture Shop, an online loose-leaf tea company that uses its platform to create spaces to engage the community, encourage connection, and celebrate Black culture in New England.
    In this interview with host Dave Ursillo, Amber shares how her identities and upbringing in Chicago inspired her entrepreneurship, how her love of food science was born at a young age, and some of the successes and challenges she’s faced with her 3-year-old business — through praise and public fanfare, among other high highs and low lows.

    Why do we need new stories, anyway? With Dave Ursillo

    Why do we need new stories, anyway? With Dave Ursillo

    Why do we need new stories, anyway? Aren't there enough stories being told these days? Hasn't every story been told before? And, if so, why should we each feel motivated to tell, share, or explore our own?
    In this solo podcast, your host Dave Ursillo hits pause on the last 7 months of interviewing amazing guests to share his own story with you, our dear listeners. Dave opens up to share how he stumbled into the art of storytelling as a practice of self-knowledge (and connecting with others); why poignant criticism of stories, expectations, and ideas today is so important, the ways in which the tools in our pockets are overwhelming the human species, and consider an offering on why being your story's teller feels more important than ever, today.
    We hope you enjoy this special, slightly different episode! Email us anytime at Hello@TheNewStory.is to share your feedback, or just to say hello.

    How white supremacy shows up in therapy—and what to do about it

    How white supremacy shows up in therapy—and what to do about it

    Dr. Han Ren is calling for more accessible, culturally-affirming care in mental health—and to decolonize the white-centered, racist, marginalizing expectations of clients in therapeutic settings.
    As a licensed clinical psychologist, educator, and mental health influencer, Dr. Ren specializes in liberation-oriented, anti-oppressive, and culturally-informed therapy. Her advocacy and education on decolonized mental health have sparked an organic, fast-growing social media audience with hundreds of thousands of followers, in recent years. Her advocacy and education on decolonized mental health have sparked an organic, fast-growing social media audience (@dr.han.ren on Instagram, @drhanren on TikTok) with hundreds of thousands of followers, in recent years.
    With a growing audience and influential voice, Dr. Ren has made her name by translating science and theory into snack-sized applications for liberated, intentional lives, and striving to make mental health accessible and applicable to one and all.
    In this interview with host Dave Ursillo, Dr. Ren shares her personal immigration story and its connection to her journey into a career in mental health, how ideas like perfectionism and overachievement are rooted in historical white supremacy, and how systemic trauma can be passed on inter-generationally.

    The CEO of Consumer Reports: It's time to take back our consumer power

    The CEO of Consumer Reports: It's time to take back our consumer power

    Marta Tellado says that consumer rights are civil rights, and it's time for us all to start acting like it.
    The president and CEO of Consumer Reports—an 85+ year consumer advocacy organization with over 6 million members today—since 2014, Marta's new book comes out swinging against the exploitation of tech's so-called Big Four (Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook), a government that refuses to take action to protect consumers today, and the low standards that we have today as consumers.
    Her new book is Buyer Aware: Harnessing Our Consumer Power for a Safe, Fair and Transparent Marketplace.
    In this interview with host Dave Ursillo, Marta shares her family's origin story of fleeing from Communist Cuba in 1961 (and how it inspired her career in public service), the connections between a healthy democracy and a healthy consumer marketplace, and what a consumer-first economy could look like in the near future—if consumers like us harness our consumer rights as civil rights, and start to demand more action.
    She tells us about what makes Consumer Reports a unique nonprofit organization, shares new initiatives by Consumer Reports to shape a fair and equitable marketplace, how discrimination runs rampant in clandestine practices and invisible algorithms across the Internet today, and what we can do about it.

Monday inspiration

My Monday inspiration is back! Dave is always insightful and captivating. The only thing I didn’t like was that he said he was a “former” yoga instructor 😉
