How do you truly honor birth? Dr. Nathan Riley joins us for the second time on the podcast. First time was back in 2019, and a lot of life has changed for him. For one thing, he's welcomed both of his daughters into the world. And today we talk about the home birth of the youngest (about 5 weeks old at the time of this interview). Nathan shares his perspective of the experience, as a father, partner and physician. Nathan also talks about the space he holds for birth and how he has evolved from an OBGYN practicing in the hospital to a more lifestyle medicine approach where he supports both parents and birth workers. The nuggets in this episode are too many to count and drop at such a rapid rate. You might need to hit pause and rewind a few times, that's how powerful it is! Things we talk about in this episode: hospital model of care, hospital birth, home birth story, fast labor and delivery, trusting and bearing witness to birth, awesome resources around holistic birth, Nathan's journey as a doctor, questioning the medical system Links: Nathan's website: https://www.belovedholistics.com/ DIAH Episode 243 with Dr. Riley - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/doing-it-at-home/id1153134918?i=1000454516925 Doing It At Home book on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3vJcPmU DIAH website: https://www.diahpodcast.com/ DIAH Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/doingitathome/ DIAH YouTube: https://bit.ly/3pzuzQC DIAH Store: https://yoursuccessfulhomebirth.com/ DIAH Merch: https://bit.ly/3qhwgAe Give Back to DIAH: https://bit.ly/3qgm4r9

Questioning history is what we do. There is so much information that leads us to believe that our history has been skewed to say the least. If they are lying to us about the dark ages, why? After all, history is all just a lie agreed upon.

Season 3, Episode 6 | Podcast #42 Today we are joined by Dr. Ken Kearns, a Board Certified, fellowship-trained shoulder and elbow orthopedic surgeon who specializes in arthroscopic surgical procedures, joint replacements, minimally invasive procedures, as well as upper extremity fracture care from the clavicle to the elbow. Dr. Kearns completed his undergraduate studies at Colby College in Maine then onto medical school at The University of Toledo School of Medicine. Next stop, Orthopaedic Residency Program at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. While a resident, Dr. Kearns was recognized by several orthopedic organizations for his research and leadership. Last stop, Dr. Kearns didn't go far for his fellowship. He was accepted to the internationally renowned Thomas Jefferson University Hospital/Rothman Institute Shoulder & Elbow Orthopaedic Fellowship Program. Dr. Kearns has been published in numerous specialty medical journals on topics specifically related to rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability, and shoulder replacement. He's been with Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder since 2016. In this episode we cover: 1:10: New research available about shoulder instability stating that shoulder injuries should be repaired after the first injury rather than the third, which was the previous recommendation. 3:15 The two things that keep your shoulder stable - static and dynamic stabilizers 5:00 Make a judgment call on if therapy is the way to go after 4-6 weeks, not 4-6 months 6:00 How a labrum is repaired and normal-tension is recreated 7:50 What does typical recovery look like using Baker Mayfield from Cleveland as an example. 9:50 You have to take into consideration longer-term aspirations to plan ff and when to do a surgery. 10:55 The problem with Sully braces 11:55 The 6 grades of ligament separations 13:30 Grade 3 is the one that people go back and forth on whether surgery is necessary. 14:00 The surgical procedure for shoulder separation repair - arthroscopically assisted repair 20:30 Typically rotator cuff tears are the gray hairs and wrinkles of the shoulder or traumatic cuff tears. 21:50 Story from Dr.Kearns' fellowship with a current hall of fame Hockey player 23:03 Very few professional athletes, besides Kobe Bryant, have come back to play after a cuff repair. 23:57 A case Dr.Kearns saw with a competitive weight lifter in her 40s. Her cuff tear was hanging on by a thread, Dr.Kearns repaired it and won her next international competition, was doing awesome and she is back after 4 years with a similar injury. 28:00 There are so many better exercises you could be doing for your upper body than the bench press. 28:21 There are two terrible things for your shoulders, shoulder press, and bench press 29:10 People get intimidated about seeing a doctor - “My job is to get the person back” 29:40 There are very few things that I will ultimately say “you need to have them fixed” and its usually not a sports injury. 37:45 Dr.Kearns asks “What is the point of the Arm bike” 38:00 Q is anti-machine as a physical therapist. 38:30 Arm bikes don't really make sense and cause more irritation than they help. ------ Dr. Ken Kearns Philadelphia Hand To Shoulder Center

Fear is a natural part of life. However, our fears don't always represent the truth. Many times, they're just beliefs that we allow to hold us back. If your fears are based on misbeliefs that you're telling yourself, then you are allowing them to drive your decisions, your thoughts, your time, and ultimately, your future. Today, Blake reveals the true origins of our fears and explains how they are often based on lies we tell ourselves. If you're ready to get past your fears and truly create the life you want, it starts with understanding that not everything your brain tells you is true. Fear is simply your brain reacting to the uncertainty you feel. But YOU hold the power to shift your fears and change your life. Today, you'll learn which of your fears might be holding you back, and how you can gain control over misbeliefs. You'll hear the most important questions to ask yourself if you're ready to move forward, and why making friends with the fears you carry is so important. What You'll Learn: Why you're already more powerful than you give yourself credit for (0:31) Questioning what's really holding you back (1:27) Making friends with fear (2:50) A powerful, revealing question to ask yourself about fear (4:31) Favorite Quotes: “Fear is tied to feeling powerless, but you aren't powerless. You have the ability every day to make decisions that can move you forward, closer to what you want.” “Unexpected things have likely come your way in your life, things you hadn't planned for. And somehow you figure it out, you adapted, you survived, and you are still here.” “People always act in accordance with what they believe to be true about themselves and their environment. So, what misbeliefs or lives are you telling yourself that are holding you back from your dreams?” Additional Resources: Rather than hoping the grass will be greener, identify what the RIGHT next step is.

In this episode, I joined @MythVisionPodcast on his channel to take calls from Muslim callers. This was a very lively and respectful discussion and we explored different topics. Some of the topics include Free will VS determinism, Pagan and Christian influences on Islam, as well as the topic of Apostasy and apostasy laws. On the topic of Apostasy, we explored the origins of the law, the various hadith, and interpretations from respected scholars. We also took calls from two Muslims who approach this topic differently but both reach the conclusion that apostasy laws are not fundamentally a part of Islam. Also, we discussed the story of Jesus's crucifixion both from a Christian and Islamic perspective. @MythVisionPodcast and I then took a call from Miran who wanted to discuss the problem of not having a single authority in Sunni Islam when it comes to issues of Islamic fiqh, hadith authentication, and scholarly advice. The conversation then, later on, moved to the topic of historical Muhammad and the story of Aisha. I hope you will enjoy this episode.

Recently, we came across a post made by a Christian. In their post, he makes an incredibly honest statement: "I feel like something BIG is missing from Christianity...and it's right in front of us. But I can't put my finger on it." Join PD and Christina as they discuss a missing puzzle piece in Christianity from the 1st Century Church, and how we can start walking more like Jesus and His disciples.
Ryder consumed over 50 books and about 200 podcasts in 2021. Walking through concepts of the origins of bureaucracy and how the protestant work ethic shaped corporations and consumer behavior, he moves into healthcare related to liberty, how to solve many problems on our way to utopia, and a model for transitioning away from capitalism into a nature-based economics.https://www.letusthinkaboutit.com/step-52-best-of-2021-review-by-books/My two favorite books“Moral Mazes” and “The Culture of the New Capitalism“Both of these are sociology books about how the world has changed. They both reference Max Weber, discussing how bureaucracy came out of the military and in America the Protestant work ethic became conflated with capitalism and eventually led to conspicuous consumption and wealth as a signal of virtue: $ = wisdom and salvation.Moral Mazes, by Robert Jackall, focused on the life of middle managers in large corporations, and how the politics needed to survive do not align with the professed values: hard work does not pay off, but appearing to be a tam player while brutally shifting blame and burning through company assets means you are a go-getter, with gumption and grit. Equally, Jackall maps out how middle managers hide behind jargon, because they can't appear to not know what they are talking about (can't look weak), which is bad for the company… but also, considering legal repercussions, they learn to use vague, coded language so as to be able to shift positions: never be caught with a strong opinion, while always seeming to decisive with strong opinions.These are the guys/gals who make decisions with their “gut,” which means they keep perpetuating the same behaviors and stereotypes, but are crafty at the optics of appearing fair or sympathetic.Richard Sennett follows up on this offering broader examples of how capitalism effects the working class, the brain-drain on talent for dumb factory labor, and discussing things like why a nurse may stay at her job, despite the terrible hours and mistreatment: people don't work for jobs, they work in a place where they can make a difference… they need to know where they fit in the world and have relevance.But they go to factories because they need a steady paycheck so they can get a mortgage from the bank, which means a competition to take the best from the labor pool, then put them to work doing mind-numbing labor: companies do not want innovation, they want subservient, blind loyalty from you. But they reserve the right to have no loyalty to the employees. Even the business owners now distance themselves, and hide at the first sign of responsibility and accountability, pushing it off onto subordinates and use technology as a distancing mechanism.All in all, we have come to embody the whole “rational actor” of economic theory, which promotes selfish, transactional relationships rather than community. It rewards sociopathy.Say you are a well-intentioned millennial, then you have been taught not to give voice to discontent: your mental health is more important than job frustration. You simply exit. “Exit over Voice,” as Sennett calls it. Old people argue, which makes them a pain when a company demands unwavering, un-considering loyalty and any question is interpreted as dissent. Institutional memory and wisdom are liabilities, so companies hire those who will just move on without a fight, which means they only get task completion instead of deep consideration from their employees. We all become mercenaries, who scream about politics, but (wisely) are afraid to lose our jobs because survival is not guaranteed in our country.What both books point out is that our society is cutting itself off at it's own knees, and feeding on them. It is like auto-cannibalism, where to be successful you must take risks, upending the stability that made our nation profitable (successful) in favor of destruction and precarity, just so you can prove “you have what it takes” or are as amoral as the leadership team you aim to join.We burn down the world our great-grandparents built, and we do it behind a gold-plated mask of jargon. Faced with the specter of uselessness, we market and promote meaningless differences as highly important.Philosophy books?Honest to god philosophy: William James and BaudrillardI read a lot of small snippets about philosophers or their viewpoints, but sitting down and actually working through multiple books? Only two authors this year. Though I did read some Deleuze, Nietzsche, Zizek, and Lyotard as well.Reading Pragmatism by William James was great. We can argue about things all day, but he discusses moving beyond ideological or semantic quibbles into a practical reality, not being a slave to your position, but grounding ourselves and carving ourselves. Providing space for spirituality he says, swim up, touch the divine, and get some spiritual energy to direct your path.Coming up with increasingly obtuse theories isn't helpful. He was really pushing back against monism, or the notion of one fixed universal truth, and equally he wasn't a fan of the notion that everything could be measured and figured, a type of determinism. He spoke a lot of a middle path, a middle road, a central corridor from which doors into other ideas can branch off, but you needn't stay cloistered in there.I think Baudrillard would suggest that these philosophies are fooling themselves. He might propose that they wouldn't even know it. His work on the idea of simulacra and simulation would say we have lost the plot, lost the purpose, we are “a man adrift without a shadow,” and we can only keep simulating achievement.But what if we have not lost the plot, but the story has already been written and we are merely enacting our roles? The memes and ideas of the world are moving us to claim “liberty” and “freedom.” We have none, no direction, so now simulate liberty, acting out of libidinal desire without understanding.The most optimistic?“Utopia for Realists”It is nice when someone spends the time to look at things like Poverty, or Universal Basic Income and says… wait a second, this doesn't make sense… the world we live in keeps saying “pull yourself up by your own boot straps”… taking a handout is a moral failing, or it is a lack of character to be poor. We need to punch through these moral myths that keep us imprisoned in pain as we end up with deaths of despair and the opioid crisis wiping out those who have been isolated in this competition where everyone loses, even when you win.Rutger Bregman proves multiple times over in “Utopia for Realists” that the government helping and protecting its citizens, (instead of profiteering) would stabilize the population at a lower cost than the current system bears. Which would help business, government, education, and other institutions.Examples provided show Universal Basic Income, eradicating poverty, and making healthcare free you both grant human dignity and “it is cheaper” than the long-term costs of prisons, emergency room visits, rehab clinics, diabetes, police, etc… We should cut the well-fare system, too. No hoops to jump through to prove you are deserving of a handout: just give people cash. The simplest solution works: eradicate poverty not with systems, but with money. The vast majority of people will not take advantage of this, but will better their own lives.The darkest?Our MaladyAs we just mentioned healthcare and human dignity, one of my favorite authors nearly died in 2019 or 2020 because of inept health care systems motivated by money over human concerns. Timothy Snyder's Our Malady walks through how our inequality as a society leads to needless death, despair, and division. He also discusses the need to fluctuate between solitude and solidarity.As a contemporary historian, his books walk us through how our fragility becomes a breeding ground for corrupt officials and corporations to continue abuse: when your health is at risk (or your family) you are a serf or slave, who can never voice dissent.And so, when our journalism turns into an untrustworthy shit-show, and we rely on social media for news because we can't trust anything, this is a symptom. If you can't be honest because you will lose your job, and your insurance, then fear and survival win out over principled moral obligation. This is simply the logic of free-market capitalism's “rational actors” or “economic agents” fulfilling the shallow logic of the market, eroding trust and long-term stability, opening our nation up for abuse and corruption: making us susceptible to tyranny.The best economic book:Sacred EconomicsCharles Eisenstein does a great job of reorienting us away from the faulty logic of the neoliberal capitalist myth. Pros vs cons… there is a cost to everything, and we need to look at this neoliberal capitalist train and wonder if the engine up ahead, where we can't see it, has fallen into the ravine and is just dragging the rest of us into a fiery explosion. Is there still time to bail? And what does that look like?Eisenstein maps out 7 steps, an interlocking system to ascend from our self-administered despair, using the bones of capitalism in which we sheltered to grow up… but I am simplifying it into 3 steps.realign money with natural decay (negative interest)alter the way land is used, letting it become the currency backing or capital as a communally shared resource, andletting pre-pollution taxing redirect innovation towards enriching a sustainable commons.The point is, we don't need more trinkets: we need a planet, a world, that works. We need to stop being selfish children or adolescents. We need to behave like responsible grown ups. Eisenstein brings up 2 great parables, the eleventh round to show how usury and the tragedy of the commons to show how “individual rational actors” destroy communion and solidarity.A key point is that money is not evil, it is a technology. But we let it have unnatural properties and try to apply it to the natural world. We need policy that will realign money with nature, society with people, and make nature our capital that we depend on instead of extracting from.Race?“The Racial Contract” by Charles MillsIt spoke to me in a way White Fragility didn't. And even the fact that Mills had to couch his arguments and ideas in academic terms to get through to people like me is brought up in the book. Thanks to L for the recommendation on this one.Self Help and Behavior books“Awareness” by Anthony DeMelloBest book maybe ever, but I didn't podcast on that. I still hold it in too much reverence.I read some self-helpy, achievement books like Atomic Habits and Judson Brewer's The Craving Mind. Along with more behavioral science books like Noise by Daniel Kahneman. The most career oriented were So Good they can't ignore you and Range, which fall into a kind of Malcolm Gladwell type of book, but less expansive, more like a field guide to creating an interesting career and life, not getting trapped.But the stand out in this strange field of “make yourself better by having knowledge of knowledge” is How to Take Smart Notes which I highly recommend for anyone who wants to actually make use of their reading, wants to write or publish or podcast.My favorite episode to make:Free guyFree Guy was great because I got to really dig into pop-culture that seems very shallow as a way to discuss pretty profound ideas of desire, identity, and Artificial intelligence as a type of government or state apparatus. We touched on Arendt's work, action, labor distinctions, where the subject is turned into a cog… but we need differences for change, not similarity… one way to manifest “difference” is through radical repetition, which invokes the transcendence of Nietzsche's eternal return.Bonus section!!FictionI finally finished David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest this year. hooray. That took like a decade. Worth it, but I now feel like I need a book club or philosophy class to decipher all the depth and strangeness of it.My favorite was The Overstory. It is long, but really worth it. The book reshapes the flaring human desires and personalities, their companionships, against the backdrop of ultra-long-lived trees under threat.If you are looking for something fun, check out the Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells. If you want some good fantasy, check out N.K. Jemison's stuff.A type of ConclusionThrough the podcast these books are tools that I can use to widen my perspective and let me come to a better understanding of how we ended up here. In a type mirroring, having past knowledge also sparks ideas of how we can escape (or move beyond) the current predicaments we are in.Or not, because humans are messy and things are complicated, but at least with this knowledge we aren't subjected to basic binaries… we have graduated to advanced binaries. hooray!Doing the show, over the last nearly two years, I feel a little bit better prepared to engage the world, to offer alternatives rather than nod along. Questioning long held assumptions is the podcast goal, and reading is the tool. None of these ideas are my own, they are just cobbled together from the wisdom of others. For the first time in a long time, I feel I am working towards a version of wisdom and richness of life, and I would like to thank you for spending some time with me on this journey.
Adam Chappell is a regenerative grower and cover crop advocate from Cotton Plant, Arkansas. Adam started growing with his dad and brother on their 7,500 acre property in 2005, but by 2009 pigweed issues alone had nearly pushed them into bankruptcy. Knowing there had to be a better way, Adam began educating himself about the power of regenerative agriculture, implementing a cover cropping strategy that he claims saved the family farm. Today, Adam's operation grows a variety of broadacre crops and continues to make strides in ecological health and crop performance. Throughout their conversation, Adam and AEA Founder John Kempf discuss: Adam's start in agriculture and how cover cropping brought the farm “from the brink of bankruptcy to a profitable enterprise.” Adam's current methodologies for crop rotation and cover cropping. How the adoption of regenerative practices has contributed to improved profitability. Adam's background in entomology and ecology and the shifts in insect populations he has seen over time. Questioning the necessity of soil testing and becoming wary of “sales tools.” Implementing Dr. Norman Lupo's root intensification method and other row spacing strategies. Livestock integration and the story of Adam's first purchase of cattle. Why Adam's goals for the future include “getting smaller.”

Her professional training is in Transpersonal Psychology and Imagery.Join the Authentic Wisdom Community at https://www.lindafrazee.com/authentic-community Blog Description:Often called the Loyal Sceptic, those who lead with Enneagram 6, are gifted with abilities to spot problems and detect BS. Sometimes thought to be "worst case scenario" thinkers, their tendency to plan ahead serves the entrepreneurial world well. When unhealthy, they can appear stubborn and obstructive. Timestamps:19:39 The virtue or the strength of the six is courage. 22:33 The six are sometimes whistle blowers because they're so loyal to a fault, and they're our forever friend. So they don't trust a lot of people and they sit back and watch. But once they trust you, they step across that invisible line and they are there for you, loyal in fact, sometimes to a fault.46:41 The blind spot of the six is important because trying to prepare for what might go wrong, they can come across to others as negative or obstructive. And that's always a surprise to them. So why doesn't everybody do that? Self-doubt may show and cause others to doubt them. They're always surprised about that because all they're doing is asking and all they're doing is questioning. Questioning may come across as accusatory may seem prickly to others. And they may think that they are hiding worry, but others see it.Full transcription of this podcast: https://www.sidehustlelounge.com/blog/ep42This episode was produced and marketed by the Get Known Podcast Service: www.getknownstrategy.com/podcast-serviceFellow pet lovers, If you've worked hard to put money aside to invest in the right side-hustle or expansion project, protect your cash reserve with the 2021 Forbes Advisor #1 Pet Insurance company, Toto.

Suzanne joins us from Hilton Head, South Carolina. She grew up admiring her older brother's career in the Air Force and dreamed of a military career as well. After becoming a Naval Commanding Officer and travelling around the world, she was invited to serve as the aide to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. For several years she was privy to top secret files, she was meeting kings and presidents and she was sitting in meetings with the President of the United States. During the tragic day of 9/11 she flew over Manhattan on Air Force 2 - which was the last aircraft in US airspace. She tells us of her walk through the wreckage at the Pentagon (her home-base) that same day with her superiors. Soon thereafter, she retired and her life changed forever. And soon after, her young stepdaughter Susan was killed and her life changed forever - again. Suzanne awakened eventually to her abilities to see connection with the unseen. We discuss training yourself in untraining … in getting away from the philosophy of “sucking it up” and “stuffing it down”. Questioning belief systems was/is key to Suzanne for re-awakening to the reality of expansion and inter-connectedness. “Going from an emptiness that can't be filled to a fullness that can't be contained”.

Sometimes the stories we think we know by heart are the ones most worth revisiting, and examining from new angles. In this episode, Avery focuses on a version of the Nativity that will likely be new to many of you: one in which the Greek of Luke 2:7 is translated differently to imply that Jesus was not born in a stable because Bethlehem's inn was full up, but rather was born right in the heart of a peasant home. As they explore the Nativity from different angles, Avery shares several poems that invite the reader into various versions of Jesus's birth, familiar and unfamiliar alike. Their hope is to help us all learn how to embrace the beads of truth within each different telling of the tale, discovering how contradiction need not mean conflict. Click here for an episode transcript. Talking Points: (0:00 - 7:46) Introducing versions of the Nativity story — listening for what's actually in Luke 2 (7:47 - 11:18) Questioning the Greek word kataluma in Luke 2:7 — an inn, or a guest room? (11:19 - 19:15) Cultural context: Joseph's ties to Bethlehem; hospitality; the layout of an ancient Judean home (19:16 - 21:50) Poem 1: "the in-laws you acquaint yourself with first...are in-law hen and cow..." (21:51 - 26:19) Reading this "new" version through a liberationist lens: emphasizing hospitality; celebrating the generosity of Jesus's fellow poor (26:20 - 28:42) Poem 2: Jesus does not wait for us in his designated corner — he bursts into our bustling, compels us to make room in our mundane mess (29:42 - 31:52) Closing thoughts on why all this matters (31:53 - end) Poem 3: "Nativity Beads" — rosary meditations; 5 versions, all pregnant with a little bead of truth

In this conversation, Lisa joins the show to talk about the difficult task of finding appropriate therapy for a gender-questioning teen or loved one. What is it like working with indoctrinated clients or those under the influence of a partner, belief system, or ideology? Lisa highlights the parental expectations of what therapy should look like, contrasted against the complex and subtle relational dynamics between therapist and client. Stella, Sasha and Lisa examine some of the common traps therapists fall into: either being too affirming or too challenging before sufficient rapport and exploration have taken place. The three also make an exciting announcement about GETA, a new Gender Exploratory Therapy Association.
