"I am a woman of history who stands up and tells the truth, irrespective of what other people say. I remember the words of the late Representative John Lewis, 'Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year. It is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.' Black female physicians are not OK, but it is our collective duty to do something about it.

A groundbreaking new documentary, They're Trying to Kill Us, features notable leaders and influencers from the fields of Hip Hop, medicine, sports, entertainment, policy, and politics weighing in on the singular most deadly threat to American society. ABOUT THE FILM Co-directors John Lewis and Keegan Kuhn have teamed up to tell the untold story of the intersections of diet, disease, poverty, institutional racism, food deserts, government corruption and collusion with Big Food and the pharmaceutical industry. The film follows John from his upbringing in Ferguson, Missouri as he crisscrosses the country seeking answers from experts as to why Americans of Color are getting sick and dying from chronic diseases at often twice the rate of white Americans. Along the way he speaks with Hip Hop artists and celebrities of Color who share their own, deeply personal experiences with how the historically poor diets that have been inflicted upon their community have led to a staggeringly high rate of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. CAST The film was co-directed by Keegan Kuhn (What The Health, Cowspiracy) and John Lewis (aka “Badass Vegan”) and features interviews with Hip Hop artists, celebrities and medical professionals such as Ne-Yo, Mya, Dame Dash, Cedric The Entertainer, Maggie Q, New York City Mayoral candidate Eric Adams, and Dr's Milton Mills and Neal Barnard. They're Trying to Kill Us also features exclusive interviews with NBA All-Star Chris Paul and multiple Grammy Award Winner Billie Eilish, who are both Executive Producers on the film. RELEASE DETAILS Eschewing a conventional release plan, They're Trying to Kill Us will be released at 11am EST on November 11 exclusively on the film's website https://www.theyretryingtokillus.com/. The price to download the film is $20. Seeking a more efficient and equitable way to release the movie, the filmmakers are launching what they are calling a “Cooperative Release” of the film, giving participants in the documentary, supporters, and select influencers their own unique URL to the film's purchase page and splitting the profits 50/50 for the first week of release. On the filmmakers' side, they are giving their first $1,000,000 dollars raised directly to charity. ABOUT THE PRODUCERS JOHN LEWIS: Widely known by his social media handle, “Badass Vegan”, John Lewis is notorious for stoking conversations and debate with his critical views and memes on current issues. John has a large social media following and is a much sought-after public speaker and social and health activist who is accustomed to saying what's on his mind. In doing so, audiences have responded to his fresh and unfiltered take on social issues. KEEGAN KUHN: Co-director Keegan Kuhn is best known as the director behind the camera for the award-winning and hugely influential films on Netflix, Cowspiracy (executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio) and What The Health (executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix).

An inside look at They're Trying to Kill Us from the creators of the groundbreaking documentary.   John Lewis and Keegan Kuhn join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss the making of the film and the systemic issues that are driving health inequality in the United States.   Why are people of color more likely to die from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer if genetics aren't the reason? Through interviews with celebrities in hip-hop, medicine, sports, entertainment, and politics, John and Keegan discovered the answer. It is perhaps the most deadly threat to society that mainstream media doesn't want to talk about.   PCRM will receive 50% of proceeds from the film through Nov. 17, 2021. — — — They're Trying To Kill Us https://killusfilm.com/PCRM — — — John Lewis Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/badassvegan Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/badassvegan Website: https://badassvegan.com — — — Keegan Kuhn Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/firstsparkmedia Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/keeganlkuhn — — — Chuck Carroll Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/chuckcarrollwlc Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/chuckcarrollwlc Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/weightlosschampion — — — Physicians Committee Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/physicianscommittee Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PCRM.org Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/pcrm — — — 21-Day Vegan Kickstart App iOS: https://bit.ly/VegKStrt-iOS Android: https://bit.ly/VegKStrtAndrd Web: https://www.pcrm.org/kickstart — — — Barnard Medical Center Appointments https://bit.ly/BMCtelemed 202-527-7500 — — — Share the Show Please subscribe and give the show a 5-star rating on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or many other podcast providers.

These are the only states that would be policed under the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, the requirement to “pre-clear” new, racially biased, voting procedures, such as limitations on early voting: Alabama Georgia Louisiana Mississippi North Carolina South Carolina Texas Virginia Don't get me wrong, the strangling of the John Lewis Act by filibuster, unlike the overhyped For the People Act, could be the death blow to a democratically elected Congress. In 2013, Justice Kennedy said the Voting Rights Act would have been constitutional if it didn't target specific states, a suggestion from New York City which was then under pre-clearance review. While the new list is a rogues gallery of bad actors, there are real dangers in Ohio, Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida, not on the list. The Democratic Party has to grasp that vote suppression is serious in almost every state. Ironically, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema may be the victim of her own obstructionism. Even with its limitations, the John Lewis Act would've been a very powerful weapon. For example, the act would absolutely have prevented Cobb County, Georgia, from closing six of 11 early voting stations, all six in African-American neighborhoods. So what now? While Attorney General Merrick Garland his filed suits against parts of Georgia's new Jim Crow SB 202, action so far is slow, limited, and scatter shot.

John Lewis an Executive Director of Heart Valve Voice US - patient advocacy, nonprofit organization, provides patients with a united voice to improve health for people living with heart valve disease by advocating for early detection, meaningful support, and timely access to appropriate treatment for all people affected by heart valve disease. The conversation began with the effects of the corona pandemic as supposed to the years 2020 and 2021. No one anticipated the 2020 march lockdown, everyone had some plans for the year and now the ending of 2021 it hasn't been a great year too as discussed by the host and guest in the podcast. The expert said that the company was able to plan in the pandemic period, many non-profit organizations required funding and that was lacking due to pandemic also the patient advocacy aspect was discussed wherein patients were informed and all the issues that were pending were taken up by the company to ensure patient centricity. He conveyed the takeaways in the pandemic and one of them was research advocacy that involves patient preference study and evolving new opportunities or directly involved recruiting patients for clinical trials. He explained in detail and drove a comparison between the practicality of what is happening in patient advocacy and whats researchers' line of thought. The concept of patient-focused device or medical development wherein one is taking patient thoughts, wishes, and considerations into the design of the clinical trials and outcomes of the clinical trials whilst there exist patient-reported outcomes which means that it can occur during the clinical process or clinical care that may not be considered or quantified in the initial stage. Further, there are patient preferences which is an emerging area. Many pertinent questions were asked regarding patient selection, and the company's overall heart valve outlook towards the patients that were answered by the expert.

When you read about Jerome Foster II's accomplishments, you'd be forgiven for assuming that he's worked in the public sector for decades. He serves on the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council; is one of the major organizers of Fridays for Future Washington, which holds weekly climate strikes in front of the White House; helped to organize three of the largest climate marches in the Washington, D.C. area; and is the executive director of OneMillionOfUs, an international youth advocacy and voting rights organization.  That would be an impressive resume for someone at the end of their career, but Jerome is only 19 years old.   In today's episode he talks about why he's devoted himself to addressing the climate crisis, shares advice on how we can all take positive action, and tells why, despite all of the challenges, he's hopeful for the future. “It's the system that has to change because the system is what caused the problem.” Small actions taken by individuals won't solve the climate emergency; meaningful change has to come from the government and corporations.  As Jerome explains, “There's the fossil industry which pays the officials to not take action and that's why we don't have climate action. It's just that the system is money in politics. And people have to understand that beyond voting, we have to also be actively aware and actively pushing our elected officials if we don't elect people that are real champions of the people.” “If a company makes a product, they have to be accountable to that product that they make and what happens to it.” Companies place the responsibility to live sustainably on the consumer, but very few people have the option to change their lifestyle in a meaningful way.  It's the companies that need to take action.  It's almost impossible to shift away from using plastic, but a company like Coca Cola could revert back to the way it used to do business, when it sold soda in returnable glass bottles.  What consumers can do is choose companies that only create renewable products.  So many companies produce one sustainable product, then use those profits towards the production of other materials that destroy the planet.  Jerome advises that consumers should “tell that larger company, say Coca Cola, that until all of your products are sustainable, it doesn't matter that one of your bottles is sustainable because that one bottle is fueling the whole system.” “You shouldn't tell them about the scale of the climate crisis, what you should really do is tell them about how to live sustainably.” Jerome believes that scaring young people about the enormity of the climate crisis does more harm than good.  Instead they should be taught to view sustainable living, like having solar panels on a house or driving an electric car, as the norm, and “that is how you can raise a generation that sees gas powered cars, and coal, oil, and natural gas as how my generation sees the rotary phone and sees the VHS, like it's outdated.”   “It just feels like your future was stolen, quite honestly.” Previous generations have left it to young people who had no part in the destruction of the environment to repair it, while taking no responsibility themselves.  As Jerome says, “I didn't reap any of the benefits that you did when you had fun making this mess. Now I have to spend all of my waking hours fixing what you did and you don't even have the respect to come back and help me clean it up. I think that what we're asking people to do is to help.  We don't need apologies. We know that you may not have known back in the day when it was happening that you're making a mess. But now you know, so come and help and come be a part of this movement.” “The impetus to why I founded OneMillionOfUs is to have an organization that brought together all justice movements under the umbrella of voting.” While interning for Rep. John Lewis, Jerome realized that many social issues intersect, so why not have advocates for all of them join together?  He created OneMillionOfUs to unite them, “so that whenever we organize a strike or protest or civil disobedience that immediately transitions into voting.  And the slogan was ‘take it to the streets, take it to the polls' and ‘today we strike, tomorrow we vote.'” Jerome says he feels the most hopeful about the future of the planet “when I'm at climate strike and going in the streets, going out with my friends and saying what needs to be done.” There's a tremendous amount to do, but he'll never give up. “I just keep pushing forward because people sent me here to fight for them So I'm going to keep on fighting no matter what.”  resources: OneMillionOfUs Instagram OneMillionOfUs Facebook OneMillionOfUs GoFundMe Jerome's Instagram Thank you to InsideTracker, Beam, and Tracksmith for sponsoring this episode.

In this episode of Conquer The Noise, Jonathan talks with Safia Qureshi, founder and CEO of CLUBZERO. CLUBZERO pioneered an award winning returnable packaging system for food and beverage brands globally. They partner with businesses to make food and beverage on-the-go more sustainable; working towards the ultimate goal of zero waste. They serve customers across the EU and North America, including the world's largest food delivery company Just Eat Takeaway, NextGen Consortium brands (Starbucks, McDonald's, Coca Cola, Yum Brands, Nestle, Wendy's) as well as leading food service company Baxter Storey, Cushman & Wakefield and retailer John Lewis & Partners. With a philosophy of making reusables free and rewarding to use, safe and convenient to return, they've achieved a market leading return-rate of 95% vs industry standard of 60%. Safia talks about how they found a solution where they provide FNB outlets (brands, chains, small independents) the ability to give their customers an experience where they can take away their food in reusable packaging that they can return when finished. Safia talks about how there are startups that will deliver beverages direct to home in glass and how CLUBZERO differs by looking at the to-go experience and connecting tech to all of it. As a brand you can understand where your inventory is and how many times they're used before the end of life. The brief she created for herself was: How do we get rid of using something for 20 seconds and replace it with better products designed to last longer and have a better experience? Part of Safia's approach is an infrastructure play, creating the system for it to function. Safia talks through the roles of consumers and entrepreneurs. She says that consumers consume and take what they are given. While the role of an entrepreneur is to design what they are given.To further the point, she explains that we don't dictate what is in the supermarket -- we buy what we see - and we vote with our dollar to what we want to see more of. So, how do I design things people will want to see more of and vote on?Her self-developed brief involved the genesis of reusable packaging to have a unique identifier of each object. Their idea is that every item that exists has its own genome. It has a QR code, a unique identifier just for that item. It gets generated and exists in the world and is recorded by our platform. We develop a platform for clients to use their own packaging lines and empower brands to use reusable packaging by providing them guidelines. She continues that they don't want to own all the world's packaging - they deploy a number of it in every city and then work with brands to create their own. Once that's generated, these packaging items are distributed and set up in any given city. We work on a city-by-city basis and are scientifica about which cities we evaluate. The end goal is to have a drop off point within 5 minutes in any direction. Think like a mailbox. Once that's done, the customer journey is finished. You can buy from one location and drop off to any location near you. Safia talks about a new line launching next month for food with Just Eat. This is an opportunity to engage with customers and understand what the other types of packaging are that they can look at for them. She has come in to look at tech, plastic, cpg, and how the recycling world works and it's quite complex and unregulated. As the show comes to a conclusion, Safia talks about how the world is not a finished project -- if you see something, question it, and if you feel something could be better, go for it. Everything around us is a work in progress

Today's guest is an author, speaker, activist, and environmental journalist Paul Hawken. Paul has dedicated his life to environmental sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. Due to a health condition and some family drama early on in his story, Paul came to understand that it wasn't safe for him to be inside, which led him to develop a love for the outdoors. He spent countless hours exploring and learning about the interconnectedness of nature, which ultimately played a pivotal role decades later in what would become his life's work: amplifying the importance of regenerative agriculture.After leaving home at the age of 14, Paul ultimately found himself at the forefront of the civil rights movement in the Deep South, where he volunteered with Dr. Martin Luther King, John Lewis, and other icons of the movement. Stay tuned, because he shares some incredible stories from that period in his life, including the time he was kidnapped after he was seen taking photos of the Klu Klux Klan! Later, Paul found himself in Boston, where he took over the now famous health food store, Erewhon. Here, he developed an even deeper understanding of the importance of protecting the environment, which led him to become the celebrated journalist, author, and activist that he is today.In today's episode, we discuss the interconnected nature of Paul's backstory, his involvement in the civil rights movement and the profound effect it had on him, and the importance of regenerative agriculture, as well as his views on hope, success, unreasonable goals, and how every single one of us can be part of the solution, plus a whole lot more! Make sure not to miss this personal and enlightening discussion with one of the world's foremost environmental advocates.
