This conversation will encourage you to reflect on your current lifestyle habits and make healthier choices to ensure your metabolism (and hormone health) is functioning as optimally as possible.

    Discovering What’s Untrue About Female Sexuality with Dr. Wednesday Martin

    Discovering What’s Untrue About Female Sexuality with Dr. Wednesday Martin

    In this special episode of The Sakara Life Podcast, we’re joined by two special guests, Dr. Wednesday Martin, #1 New York Times Bestselling author and feminist cultural critic and my husband, Damion to discuss her fascinating book, Untrue. Throughout this episode, we unpack all of the societal and cultural factors that have impacted our notions around sexuality and gender - particularly in relation to women. We also discuss how women have inherently been taught their sexuality is less than men and debate whether or not humans (but more specifically women), are meant to be in monogamous relationships. This conversation is so thought-provoking and will encourage you to consider your own experience within the notion of gender and social constructs - and how this inherently impacts our desires and sexual experiences.

    Examining Our Food + Farming System with Dr. Liz Carlisle

    In this episode, we sit down with country singer-turned-environmentalist, Dr. Liz Carlisle, who is also an Assistant Professor at UCSB and author of multiple books (including her latest, Healing Grounds). Throughout this episode, we discuss how soil is the foundation for the health of our ecosystem and nutritional value of food - and how we need to make changes to our farming practices for true change. We discuss all of the intricacies of the food and farming systems and how all of the inputs impact what winds up on our plate. Dr. Carlisle champions the notion that for true change - we need to reverence for the earth, the soil, and one another. We hope you find this episode as informative as we did and that it encourages you to more carefully consider the impacts of your choices when it comes to food and interacting with one another and the environment.
