The Climate Emergency is not far in the future, it’s here now.

So, what can we do about it?

In this episode, my guest Shirley Raines, founder of Beauty 2 The Streetz, schools me on the mechanisms of creating change, which she does by providing makeovers on Skid Row with her ever-growing non-profit.

Shirley started Beauty 2 The Streetz as a means to heal after losing one of her sons, who passed away at a young age. She now considers herself a mother to the hundreds that she services on Skid Row every Saturday.

Indian Food for Thought

activism, food, podcast, society March 25, 2020

In this episode, I’m chatting with Sana Javeri Kadri, founder of Diaspora Co., a direct trade spice company working towards a radically equitable, sustainable, and more delicious spice supply chain.

Sana, who was born and raised in Mumbai, decided to start her business after working at the intersection of food and culture there.  She discovered that farmers made no money, and spices changed hands upwards of 10 times before reaching the consumer–glaringly similar to the business model enacted during the western, colonial conquest of the Indian subcontinent.
