    Unbroken: Loss, Resilience, & Reinvention with Egli Colon Stephens, Ed.D

    Unbroken: Loss, Resilience, & Reinvention with Egli Colon Stephens, Ed.D

    Egli Colon Stephens is both a professor with a doctorate and a professional lifestyle model. She is also the author with her daughter Natalia Harris of Unbroken: A Mother-Daughter Journey of Resilience, Faith and Courage, detailing Natalia's battle with bone cancer as a teenager. Natalia survived -- sur-thrived as she called it -- and went on to fulfill her dreams of becoming a model, with gigs including NYC Fashion Week, Project Runway, and landing the December 2019 cover of Vogue Knitting. But just over two years ago, at the age of 24, Natalia passed away from a rare kidney cancer. 
    Her mother, Egli, is now living for two, and doing that brilliantly. She is navigating life's greatest grief with a strong faith, a conviction to sharing Natalia's gifts with the world, and mourning in bright colors, rediscovering her childhood passion for roller-skating ("I call it roller-grieving"), using fashion as a distraction and a means of self-expression, and becoming an Instagram inspirer-influencer @iamnataliasmom.

    The Joy of Ritual With Barbara Biziou

    The Joy of Ritual With Barbara Biziou

    Finding the miraculous in the ordinary, dealing bravely (and realistically) with down times, growing older brilliantly, marking the Autumn Equinox, and other milestones of the wheel of the year, and creating simple rituals for daily life are the delicious ingredients of this week's episode. 
    The guest is transformational vision coach, spiritual teacher, and motivational speaker Barbara Biziou. A fixture in the New York City spirituality space since the early 1990s, and known around the world, Biziou is committed to inspiring growth and positive change. She specializes in ancient rituals, readings, energy clearing, spiritual realignment, igniting intuition, manifesting purpose, and -- Renaissance woman that she is -- corporate wellness. And this is a delightfully personal conversation: Barbara and Victoria are longtime friends who invite you in for some highly spirited girl talk with lots of golden nuggets to take away.

    Elephants and Ecstasy, the Sangita Iyer Story

    Elephants and Ecstasy, the Sangita Iyer Story

    Ganesha, the elephant-headed god in the Hindu pantheon, is revered as the removal of obstacles, but in many Ganesha temples in India, particularly in the state of Kerala, birthplace of Sangita Iyer, live elephants are held, shackled as prisoners. In other instances, elephants are kept by entertainment entrepreneurs to perform in numerous festivals. To Iyer, this is enslavement of beings who really are godlike in their majesty, patience, and intelligence. Listen in to hear how "elephant people" inspired this former TV news reporter to found Voice for Asian Elephants Society, make the award-winning documentary, Gods in Shackles, and write the book Gods in Shackles, a recent number 1 bestseller on Amazon. You'll also learn what elephants are doing to stem climate change, and why the World Bank says that every elephant in the wild makes a $1.75 million lifetime contribution to planetary integrity through their role in carbon sequestration.

Incredibly inspiring and educational podcast

I've listened to Main Street Vegan Podcast weekly for over 3 years. The podcast inspired me on my vegan journey, and has given so much helpful information on the how's and why's of this amazing lifestyle. Victoria's insightful and warm interview style puts her guests (and listeners) at ease. And each week, I learn so much from what is shared on the show. I look forward to it each week! I highly recommend it for the veg-curious, as well as those on their veg journey, from newbies to long-term vegans.
