episode 17: S02E17: Reketta Peterson - Revolutionizing healthcare practice for minorities... all the way from Alaska~

When most of us think of exceptional thought leaders driving an agenda of inclusiveness and trying to force the medical establishment to be better, do better, and treat better - especially those who come from minority groups we don't usually picture a fierce Black woman, who is a health practitioner in Alaska.  Heck, most of us probably didn't realize there ARE Black women in Alaska (with right around 3% of the Alaskan population being Black there is a reason for that)...

episode 16: S02E16: Tasha Sattler - Creating wearable art for movement artists

episode 15: S02E15: Cryptopher Robin & Defi Fry - Crypto currency without the spam or scam

episode 13: S02E13: Dr Danny Brassell - Helping parents get kids hooked on books.

If you grew up in the 80's or 90's in the US you probably have fond memories of LeVar Burton reading you books, and chasing "butterflies in the sky".  The love of reading and books was then, probably, backed up at school with the chance to earn a FREE (tiny) personal pizza at PizzaHut by reading a certain number of books.  Kids loved it. Today Reading Rainbow is off the air, and has been since 2006, and there is no more "pizza for reading" program...

episode 12: S02E12: Morgan Rockwell - Healing and helping today with ancient wisdom.

Every year fertility rates are declining, especially in the most developed countries.  Birth rates are lower, and more and more couples are turning to fertility medicine like IVF.  The process is stressful, expensive, and emotional.  For  many it is simply outside of what they can afford, or manage within their lifestyles.  Morgan Rockwell offers a different approach.  Her techniques and treatments come from ancient Oriental Medicine...

Have you heard strange noises in the night?  Heard voices of people not there? Felt a chill and a sudden change in temperature?  Kristy Sumner has.  The team at Soul Sisters (and yes, they are sisters!) travels around investigating rumors of hauntings and looking for clear, scientifically reliable evidence of spectral manifestations.  They have found... a LOT.  Is it all irrefutable guaranteed to convert anyone? Nope - and that may be one of the best parts...

episode 9: S02E09: Ilke Demir - Paving the way for the future of women in science!

Even in 2022 women in science are ridiculously rare.  Less than 30% of the world's researchers are women.  The impact that this overwhelming bias has can be felt across sectors from the lack of focus on women's health, or reproductive issues, to the algorithmic biases found in AI that has been developed overwhelmingly by men...
