Jordan B. Peterson is a psychologist, professor, and author who is passionate about using his voice to learn, grow, and change the world. Today he emphatically discusses how powerful you are, especially when it comes to your speech, and how that can lead to more self respect. Standing up for your values and setting boundaries by speaking up is a skill that needs to be practiced, and one that is too important to ignore. Don't shy away from your voice out of fear—instead, use your inner strength to speak up, speak truth, and speak life to those around you. Watch the full clip here.

On the Bright Side of Fame, YouTuber Nikocado Avocado, otherwise known as Nicholas Perry, has become one of the most popular vloggers on the platform with well over 4 Million followers spread across a series of six different channels, all of which document his adventures in the art of extreme-eating, also known as “Mukbang”. Ever since 2016, Perry's consumption of an absolutely staggering amount of food has captured the attention of a vast audience and earned him worldwide fame. But on the other side of fame is a different story altogether and after having posted videos of himself binge-eating nearly every day for the past few years, viewers are finally starting to become concerned over Avocado's health. On top of his physical health concerns, fans have also begun to worry about his mental state after a feud with fellow Mukbang YouTubers got out of hand and a collaborator of his would accuse him of abusive behavior. Despite his fan's many valid concerns over his well-being, Nikocado has continued to push himself to dangerous extremes.

Why are we so hard on ourselves when we make a mistake, yell at our kids, or compare ourselves to someone who seems to have a shiny, perfect life? We say we should treat others the way we want to be treated, but so often we forget to treat ourselves with kindness too.   Kristin Neff, an associate professor of educational psychology, is on a mission to teach others practical self-compassion skills to use in everyday life. In today's talk, she identifies three components of self-compassion: kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness. It's not always easy—self-compassion takes fierce awareness and boundaries, and true vulnerability with each other—but it's worth the effort.   For more on Kristin Neff: Watch the full clip here.  Website - self-compassion.org Her book - Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive.   Don't forget to check out today's sponsors: Avocado Mattress – When you're well rested, you're healthier and happier.

Caroline Casey knows what it's like to live a life pretending to be something you're not—in her case, she hid the fact that she was legally blind to climb the corporate ladder. But once she realized she could ask for help and still believe in herself, she found she was capable of great things, including reaching goals no one thought were possible for her.   Too often we believe the negative, inaccurate labels given to us by others, or we only see our weaknesses, leading us to doubt our true strengths. We all have limitations, of course, but fear and doubt can create limitations that don't need to be there.

Yes, we all know that the 1998 Michael Bay flick Armageddon is a masterpiece of cinema, but two years ago we asked ourselves this question: How much does it actually hold up as a blueprint for preventing planetary destruction?  Let's say it doesn't: What can we do to keep from going the way of the dinosaurs?  Nobody was better suited to answer our many questions than Professor K.T. Ramesh. He told us about a future test mission called DART. Armed with a spacecraft the size of a golf cart, it could have potential to save humanity.  Two years later, DART has launched, and we thought it was a hell of a time to revisit this Best of the Best episode. In Episode 66, Quinn & Brian discuss: Why, apparently, we shouldn't just blow up asteroids. Our guest is Professor K.T. Ramesh, who is a professor of mechanical engineering at John Hopkins, founding director of the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI), and our new hero. You can think of HEMI as a real-life Avengers (no, we're not just stuck on Endgame), except every member is like Bruce Banner without all the Hulk-iness or Tony Stark if he was never kidnapped by terrorists. Every day, they're working to protect people, structures, and the planet, exploring a number of topics that are both critically important and impenetrably complicated.  One of their newest studies reveals that Hollywood and Atari may, in fact, have been incorrect when they repeatedly suggested that one viable way to defend the planet from an incoming asteroid would be blowing it up. We don't know about you, but we certainly feel lied to – so it's refreshing to have this conversation with Professor Ramesh to set the record straight. Today's episode is brought to you by Avocado Green Brands, where sustainability comes first. They craft their GOTS certified organic mattresses, pillows, and bedding with natural materials sourced from their organic farms in India, in their own clean-energy powered facility in Los Angeles, where their team shares a singular purpose: To raise the bar for what it means to be a sustainable business.  Avocado is Climate Neutral Certified for net zero emissions and donates one percent of all revenue to environmental nonprofits through its membership with 1% For the Planet.  https://www.avocadogreenmattress.com/?utm_medium=partner&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=INI_November (Find out what it means to sleep organic at AvocadoMattress.com).

In this episode, Ted Stryker welcomes Davey Havok to the Tuna On Toast studio to celebrate life and 30 years of AFI!   For this episode, it's the Avocado on Toast studio :)   Stryker and Davey cover so much ground, from AFI, Blaqk Audio and Dreamcar, to funny late night Hollywood stories and a ton more!    Davey tells Stryker how he injured his throat during quarantine, what the diagnosis eventually was, and how it's healed.   The guys talk about the big New Years Eve Blaqk Audio Show coming up and Davey actually surprises Stryker with his answer to the question about Blaqk Audio rehearsals (or lack thereof).  He explains how he and Jade Puget get ready for their BA shows.   Davey tells Stryker a great story of his Katy Perry encounter including a situation that went down at her show when Davey was rocking a beautiful raspberry red Marc Jacobs suit.   Davey then explains to Stryker why he constantly creates, where that passion comes from, and what album he received for his 5th birthday.   Davey discusses with Stryker growing up in Ukiah with guys like Adam Carson, Jade and Nic 13 and the life journey that took him there.    Davey tells another great and funny story about the time he met Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Hawaii.    Davey and Stryker talk about when AFI moved to Berkeley, and the first time playing 924 Gilman Street and jumping on stage to play a few songs during a Rancid show.    Stryker and Davey then discuss early AFI albums and what the legendary concert booker Stormy Shepherd told Davey when he asked her to book AFI.    Both Stryker and Davey attempt to recall a night many years ago in Hollywood that involved supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio and the very fun Chambers Brothers.    Davey talks about meeting with and signing to a major label and what that experience was like. The guys chat about the All Hallow's EP, the Total Immortal video, The Art of Drowning, Sing the Sorrow and decemberunderground and what the avalanche of success was like.    Davey and Stryker also chat about Dreamcar and the possibility of creating more music with Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont.    Davey reveals to Stryker his favorite AFI album and the guys talk about the upcoming AFI bodies tour.    The new AFI merch (some designed by Skinhead Rob Aston) is fantastic, be on the lookout for the different releases to celebrate 30 years of AFI.   So much ground was covered, the above text are just a few of the highlights of the interview.   Davey is such a powerful and sweet man that has always stuck to his guns.    He is a true artist and a great dude. Thank you so much for watching this episode of Tuna on Toast.....Avocado on Toast.

In Episode 128, Quinn unpacks the most delicious olive oil in the world, how it came to be, and what it means to start a food business in the age of climate change. Our guest is: Aishwarya Iyer, dreamer, doer, and eternal optimist. Ash is the founder and CEO of Brightland, the new gold standard in pantry essentials. They are proponents and advocates for authenticity and transparency in the food industry, starting with olive oil. There are something like six bajillion bottles of olive oil at your local supermarket, and that's just the extra virgin stuff. And yet, despite the options (organic, cold-pressed, etc) you'd be hard-pressed (sorry) to find pure, quality oils – ones that aren't blended, rancid, or worse.  Thankfully, you don't have to cross the Atlantic (and the Mediterranean) in order to find the good stuff. It's available right here in California. Ash has been hard at work extending olive branches (you're welcome) to local family farms, getting them to buy into the mission and the message. Brightland is also branching out into sweet and sour territory with truly addictive honey and vinegar offerings. Making a difference often means shopping responsibly. It's wonderful having one more option when it comes to it. Today's episode is brought to you by Avocado Green Brands, where sustainability comes first. They craft their GOTS certified organic mattresses, pillows, and bedding with natural materials sourced from their organic farms in India, in their own clean-energy powered facility in Los Angeles, where their team shares a singular purpose: To raise the bar for what it means to be a sustainable business.  Avocado is Climate Neutral Certified for net zero emissions and donates one percent of all revenue to environmental nonprofits through its membership with 1% For the Planet.  https://www.avocadogreenmattress.com/?utm_medium=partner&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=INI_November (Find out what it means to sleep organic at AvocadoMattress.com).

What Will Happen to Your Body If You Eat Avocado Every Day. The avocado is a unique fruit with multiple nutritional and health benefits. How would your body respond if you ate just one avocado a day? In fact, it would transform your life as you'd get amazing results: your breath will be fresh at all times, your kidneys and liver will work more efficiently, your blood pressure will become lower, just to name a few. There's a miraculous mineral to be found in avocados: potassium. It helps your system keep a healthy fluid balance through chemical channels for cells and organs. Avocados are also a great source of vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is known for its involvement in the creation of collagen and elastin, which help to maintain the skin's elasticity and firmness. Vitamin E takes it to a whole new level, reducing the damage of excessive sun exposure and counteracting aging. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The 2006 tour is seen as Pearl Jam's last massive rigorous touring year in their catalog. Supporting the Self Titled, or better known as Avocado record, they were finding their groove with new songs while also emptying their tank of all their songs with long droughts of not being played. The Albany show that we cover in this episode takes place just over a week after the album's release, and while nine of those thirteen songs were showcased, the band went through and did some digging deep into the back catalog to bring back a few that hadn't seen the live stage in a number of years - Red Mosquito, that had been played on the previous tour year but held off for 40 straight shows, Satan's Bed, which was haphazardly brought back at State College in 2003 but played for the first legitimate time since 1996, and Rats which had only been played twice in the Matt Cameron era. Rats is the big one from this set that most fans will remember since it had gone 224 shows on the shelf. Later that month, the band would end up adhering to another popular drought request, Leash, and then eventually the elusive Dirty Frank. This show is defined by it's rarities just as much as it's defined by the brand new songs energizing them. Wasted Reprise/Life Wasted combo opening the show was something they didn't break out very often, and after this era songs like Marker In The Sand, Army Reserve and Gone were pushed aside. We'll get to talk extensively about some of these tracks and how fresh they felt being played for only a single digit amount of times till that point.

The avocado is the iconic food of the twenty-first century. It has gone from a little-known regional food to a social media darling in less than a hundred years. This is an astounding trajectory for a fruit that isn't sweet, becomes bitter when it is cooked and has perhaps the oddest texture of any fruit or vegetable. But the idea that this rich and delicious fruit is also healthy despite being fatty and energy-dense gives it unicorn status among modern eaters, especially millennials. Through lively anecdotes, colourful pictures and delicious recipes, Jeff Miller's book Avocado: A Global History (Reaktion Books, 2020) explores the meteoric rise of the avocado, from its co-evolution with the megaherbivores of the Pleistocene to its acceptance by the Spanish conquistadores in Mexico and its current dominance of food consumers' imagination. Jeff Miller is an Associate Professor of Hospitality Management at Colorado State University. He is the co-author of Food Studies: An Introduction to Research Methods (2009) and was named Culinary Educator of the Year in 2017.  Amir Sayadabdi is a lecturer in Anthropology at Victoria University of Wellington.

In Episode 126, Quinn meets his newsletter heroes: Kim Zou & Sophie Purdom, co-founders of the independent media outlet Climate Tech VC. Kim works with Energy Impact Partners, a venture capital firm investing in climate technology. Sophie works as an investor in early stage climate technology businesses.  Together they write Climate Tech VC, the data-obsessed, essential take on the opportunities, deals, and news in the flourishing climate tech scene. There is a massive cost that comes with transitioning every single existing building and vehicle, not to mention all of our power and infrastructure to green tech. While it's arguably the biggest challenge of our time, it is also quite possibly the biggest market opportunity ever.  Kim and Sophie discuss the sustainability of volunteer advocacy for these important endeavors, and managing the currency of free time as this work becomes people's second jobs--without the pay.  They also outline the action steps you can take, whether an investor, journalist, or a student looking to make the leap into the climate tech space -- because (so fun) it's now or never! Today's episode is brought to you by Avocado Green Brands, where sustainability comes first. They craft their GOTS certified organic mattresses, pillows, and bedding with natural materials sourced from their organic farms in India, in their own clean-energy powered facility in Los Angeles, where their team shares a singular purpose: To raise the bar for what it means to be a sustainable business.  Avocado is Climate Neutral Certified for net zero emissions and donates one percent of all revenue to environmental nonprofits through its membership with 1% For the Planet.  https://www.avocadogreenmattress.com/?utm_medium=partner&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=INI_November (Find out what it means to sleep organic at AvocadoMattress.com).

In Episode 125, Quinn asks: How can venture capital offer solutions to two of the biggest problems of our time? His guests are Vida Asiegbu and Anthony Oni, two incredible climate venture capitalists with Elevate Future Fund. Vida Asiegbu is a Principal within the Elevate Future Fund, working to make sure that the companies and organizations that they represent within their portfolio meet all of their goals and values. Anthony Oni is the Managing Partner of the Elevate Future Fund, part of Energy Impact Partners, focused on creating a transition into clean energy through investments – while also building a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable future. Together, Vida and Anthony ask (and answer): How do we build new systems that help and support all people, as we face this incredible crisis (and opportunity)?  How do we approach the obligation we have to help others? How do we address the very personal – and very local – effects of climate change?  And how the hell do we find and invest in companies that are moving the needle in both directions?

In Episode 124, Quinn interviews Dr. Elizabeth Ruzzo, a brilliant human geneticist who left the world of academia to launch adyn, her effort to help women find the best birth control for their unique bodies. Family planning affects everybody – whether they use it themselves or not. With 200 forms of birth control to choose from, you'd think women would be able to easily find an option that didn't make them feel like hot trash garbage -- but you'd be wrong. In 2021, genetic testing means we can make this process much, much, much easier. Enter adyn. Family planning is (wait for it) more or less ignored by medical research, but adyn's goal is to address that disparity head on and usher in a new age where women don't have to experiment with 43 different forms of birth control until they (maybe) find one that doesn't cause side-effects ranging from depression to blood clots and worse.  Listen in as Elizabeth describes a world where a simple and private genetic test shared with adyn can lead to a medicine that gets the job done but doesn't ruin your day, every day.
