When Your Kids Call You Out For Driving a Car n Calling Yourself An Activist - Eoin Campbell of XR

December 10, 2019

Extinction Rebellion's Eoin Campbell is a thinking man's...um...thinking man. He's the role model for what we all actually need to be doing right now. He's pretty quiet about it, not evangelical at all, which makes his position even more persuasive.

 

From buying chickens to see if his family has the guts to kill their own food, to stopping flights point blank and instigating a family feud about how much this would limit their summer holiday destinations. These maybe seem like first world concerns, but are any of the rest of us even concerning ourselves with them???

Biohacking Brain Trauma - Dasha Maximov

Biohacking Brain Trauma - Dasha Maximov

December 9, 2019

From Heliotherapy and sun gazing, to vipasana and forest bathing, Dasha has dived deep into the world of health. 

Just one year on from the start of her journey into serious health exploration, prompted by suffering her 6th concussion, Dasha has become a serious biohacker.  And it's no surprise either, as her history studying neurology and and managment science shows this lady's ability to hack into and apply the science.    

The really powerful part of Dasha's story is in her capacity and willingness to change, and in her commitment to find joy in her new lifestyle approach.  There's no doubting that she had challenge, but what Dasha's transformation shows is that when life throws us hurdles, and insists we live within new limitations, those limitations don't have to behave as restrictive boundaries, rather we can find new routes to raise our vibrations, increase our vitality and find access to our personal evolution.

Lorraine D’Arcy - Making Healthy Human Habitats

Lorraine D’Arcy - Making Healthy Human Habitats

November 18, 2019

It's amazing how living close to people doesn't make for closer communities.
Counter intuitively, it seems that urban living is more isolating than ever.
So why does this happen and how do we fix it? We found an expert who's working to do just that!!

Lorraine D'Arcy has a PhD in the Built Environment, Social Cohesion, Urban Form...basically she's an expert in how best to plan our city spaces to maximise human-ness, to enhance integration and make healthy urban communities.

We chat through how the design for cities, parks and playgrounds is evolving to allow communities to explore their boundaries, to understand risk, make their own decisions around the use of public spaces. With a less restrictive approach to planning, humans large and small have the opportunity to assess their environment and approach it with more creativity.

We chat through the controversial Bus Connects program, the design of which Lorraine has been heavily involved in, which is rolling out throughout Dublin City over the coming years, which is designed to enhance community connectivity, facilitating access for the many thousands of commuters in their daily routine as work lives and travel habits shift from our traditional suburb to city centre, into more granular and individualised patterns.

Jonathan Cairns The Plant Based Runner

Jonathan Cairns The Plant Based Runner

November 9, 2019

In his own words Jonathan Cairns ‘ was 46, fat, fed up and frustrated.’ when the moment came that he decided to change his life around.

In his new book “ The Plant Based Runner “ Jonathan documents his journey from an ‘unfit slug, to an ultra-marathon runner’, he wrote the book that he was searching for when he began his journey , but couldn’t find. 

In our live podcast with Jonathan we discuss his motivations for getting up off the couch and how he managed to reach his goals by simply putting one foot in front of another.

Jonathans story is inspiring not just because of the magnitude of change he has brought into his life but also because it is so relatable. This was not a man who had always loved running, it was a man who was deeply unhappy and needed to find a way to drag himself out of the mud by finding a type of exercise that brooked no excuses like fancy gym memberships, equipment or even having to drive to a class; all he needed are was his own two feet and some will power.

What we love about Jonathan is that he is completely honest about the moments of hardship when he wanted to give up, about the challenges he faced, and about the work it takes to look at yourself in the mirror and boldly step forward into those changes.

His book and his message are clear; anyone no matter their age, fitness level or lifestyle can change their life.

 

If you enjoy this podcast do support Jonathan by buying his book from local book stores, amazon or kindle.

Dr Ciaran O’Carroll      The time to act is NOW

Dr Ciaran O’Carroll The time to act is NOW

November 6, 2019

In the first of our mini podcasts live from the Irish extinction Rebellion week camp, we chat to dr Ciaran O’Carroll about the XR mission. He calls for immediate action by us the people, to come out of our houses and support protests, join the XR meetings, and petition the government to ban the burning of fossil fuels. He makes it clear that people are dying from climate change NOW and this isn’t a problem that lies in the hands of others but rather sits on our very own doorstep. He urges that we need to acknowledge this fact and start to make changes on a personal level, as well as a government level with immediate effect.

Ciaran argues that climate delayers are just as bad as climate deniers at this stage, because they both end us up in the same place; whilst efforts are undoubtedly being taken across the world in order to make steps in the right direction, it is all too little and all too slow. He points out that despite the fact that we declared a Climate Emergency over a year ago, in the latest budget that came out in Ireland, the government gave only 9 million to support cycling  but 16 million was given to greyhound racing, which shows where their priorities lie, and that the sense of urgency with which the XR movement feel we need to be acting hasn’t been taken on.

Rob Verkerk - A Respectful “No” To The No Meat Agenda

Rob Verkerk - A Respectful “No” To The No Meat Agenda

October 13, 2019

With the pressure mounting on the carnivores to consider their meat consumption, it’s rare to find a balanced voice who can actually pick apart the delicate nuanced science behind the noise.

Dr Robert Verkerk is just such a man however. With a re-focus on eco-agricultural methods, Rob believes, and convincingly so, that we are better off with some degree of animal agriculture, both for human health and the health of our planet. Predictably, he urges a reduction in meat consumption, but if large tracts of the population turn vegan he says - they must become “wise vegans” with a view to ensuring that certain micronutrients are focused on in supplement form in order to maintain and optimise health. He breaks some of these key nutrients down so that those of us keen to make our lives more plant-based, can do so with confidence.

Going Deep with Shaman Durek at Vitality 2019

Going Deep with Shaman Durek at Vitality 2019

September 28, 2019

Given our previous conversations with Mantak Chia and Shubamrita on the subject of spirituality, we were beyond giddy to have some precious moments to accept learnings from Shaman Durek, a shaman with his roots in west African culture and tracing from a long line of medicine men and spiritual healers.

We were really intrigued to get behind the public persona, to access some of the more private musings of the man, and to delve into the formative years of this powerfully healing human being.

It was exciting to feel the enabling simplicity of his message, to hear stories of the impacts his insights have had on his friends both famous and not so, and to simply experience the presence of a man standing so naturally in his power.

This one is lit, folks, and no mistake!

Patrick Holford at Vitality 2018

September 23, 2019

For over 2 decades Patrick Holford has been at the forefront of the natural health industry. Having first gained attention in the media for his role in disseminating concepts around Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load, which changed the entire lens through which we viewed food consumption and helped thousands to gain control of their blood sugars, energy and weight management.

These days he's moving the nutritional debate in a new direction. The Ketogenic diet has officially gone viral in the past couple of years and Patrick Holford is fully onboard. Here as he explains the fundamental concepts behind ketosis and why we all need to take a fresh look at the food - and especially the fats - on our plates.

Ben Sasse @ Meadows In The Mountains 2019 - Real And Resonant Change (Ideals Before Income)

Ben Sasse @ Meadows In The Mountains 2019 - Real And Resonant Change (Ideals Before Income)

September 16, 2019

Want to hear the origin story of Meadows In The Mountains? From the horse's mouth? Tune in and find out why Meadows is THE festival for right now.

With a courageous, even fearless approach, for 9 years now Ben and his team have managed to draw significant and growing numbers of folk from various nationalities to a green field site high in the Rhodope mountains in rural Bulgaria - ostensibly they're there to party,

But a deep vein of social activism runs through every facet of this festival - it's a living breathing organ for social change. This is immediately clear when you hear the passion with which Ben addresses every element of his baby.

And what a baby! Meadows In The Mountains has the heart that might just allow the hedonistic festival vibe to actually preach to and convert masses of young folk in their western affluent audience to become agents in their own communities, to preserve and grown the commitment that Ben and Meadows In the Mountains show to making a better world, and possibly...juuuuust possibly, save this planet and our global community from the brink of extinction.

Jennifer Rocks - Feeling Good In Your Own Skin

Jennifer Rocks - Feeling Good In Your Own Skin

August 11, 2019

On this weeks podcast we are chatting to  @theskinnerd Ireland’s very own skin guru and female entrepreneur extraordinaire. 

Jennifer Is the founder and CEO of award winning business The Skin Nerd, she has thousands of avid fans across Ireland who follow her skin care tips and tricks and this year her much awaited book on all things skin, went straight to the top of the Irish non fiction best seller lists and has been nominated for an Irish book award!

When we were researching and preparing for this podcast, all we kept hearing from endless sources who had worked with Jennifer was “ what a lovely person “ she is: everyone raves about her warm and bubbly personality and they weren’t wrong.  We met Jennifer at Wellfest this year where we sat in the sun in the gardens of the modern art museum and chatted about what it is like to carve a career for yourself as a young single mum.

We discussed how she managed to ride life’s unexpected twists and turns and still raise a brilliant human and manage a booming business.  One thing that Jennifer is candid about is that it wasn’t always smooth sailing, there were mistakes along the way and many moments where she wasn’t sure how to make it work, but in true Jennifer fashion she picked herself up, kept on going , took support when it was offered, gathered a wonder team around her and now is standing proud as the woman who is helping thousands of people finally feel good in their own skin.

To find out more about the skin nerds services go to : https://www.theskinnerd.com/ Or you can buy her book “ The Skin Nerd” in book stores now.
