VIJAY PRASHAD on Capitalism's Erosion of Morality [ENCORE] /268

This week we are rebroadcasting our interview with Vijay Prashad, originally aired in February of 2021. Emboldened by the rapid development of technology, a cultural ethos of rugged individualism, globalization, and the monopolization of our media, the era of efficiency in the so-called Global North has significantly altered our communal symbiosis. For many, acts of service that would have once been fulfilled by neighbors and community have now been replaced by apps and gig workers, ultimately commodifying most of our social relations in one form or another. This week on the podcast, we are joined by guest Vijay Prashad to explore how societies take care of themselves, what true public action looks like in crisis, and how movements across the world have resisted the privatization of life and the devaluation of care that we have become accustomed to. Vijay Prashad is the Director of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research, Chief Editor at LeftWord Books and Chief Correspondent for Globetrotter. His most recent book is Washington Bullets, just out from Monthly Review Press with a preface by Evo Morales Ayma. Music by Nathan Keck, Lizabett Russo, Sidi Touré, and Jon Yonts.

Front Row Classics kicks off 2022 with a visit from one of the most renowned and trusted voices in the film community. Brandon is thrilled to welcome Leonard Maltin to the podcast. Mr. Maltin discusses his new book, "Starstruck: My Unlikely Road to Hollywood". The interview covers his many interactions with both legendary and lesser known entertainment figures. We also discuss his early days as a critic & interviewer along with his tenure teaching USC's popular film studies course. This is definitely a conversation that any film lover will enjoy. "Starstruck: My Unlikely Road to Hollywood" is available wherever books are sold from GoodKnight Books. Leonard Maltin is one of the most recognized and respected film critics of our time. He spent 30 years on the hit television show Entertainment Tonight and appears regularly on Turner Classic Movies. An established author, he is best known for his annual paperback reference, Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide. In 2005, he introduced a companion volume, Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide (now in its third edition), which focuses on movies made before 1965, going back to the silent era. Leonard's other books include Hooked on Hollywood, The Best 151 Movies You've Never Seen, The Disney Films, Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons, The Great American Broadcast: A Celebration of Radio's Golden Age, The Great Movie Comedians, Movie Comedy Teams, The Art of the Cinematographer, Selected Short Subjects and (as co-author) The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang. Leonard has been teaching at the USC School of Cinematic Arts for the last 23 years. His popular class screens new films prior to their release, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. This direct access to top talent has proven to be invaluable in his students' own filmmaking endeavors. As an expert and host, he is frequently seen on news programs and documentaries. Leonard is also a prolific freelance writer whose articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, Smithsonian, TV Guide, Esquire, The Village Voice and American Film. He was the film critic for Playboy magazine for six years. Additionally, Leonard frequently lectures on film and was a member of the faculty of New York City's New School for Social Research for nine years. He served as Guest Curator at the Museum of Modern Art film department in New York on two separate occasions. Leonard created, hosted and co-produced the popular Walt Disney Treasures DVD series and appeared on Warner Home Video's Night at the Movies features. He has written a number of television specials, including Fantasia: The Creation of a Disney Classic and has hosted, produced and written such video documentaries and compilations as The Making of The Quiet Man, The Making of High Noon, Cartoons for Big Kids, The Lost Stooges, Young Duke: The Making of a Movie Star, Cliffhangers: Adventures from the Thrill Factory and Cartoon Madness: The Fantastic Max Fleischer Cartoons. In 2006 he was named by the Librarian of Congress to join the Board of Directors of the National Film Preservation Foundation. He also has received awards and citations from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, American Society of Cinematographers, Anthology Film Archives, The Society of Cinephiles, San Diego Comic-Con International, and the Telluride Film Festival. In 1997 he was made a voting member of the National Film Registry, which selects 25 landmark American films every year. Perhaps the greatest indication of his fame was his appearance in a now-classic episode of the animated series South Park. He holds court at leonardmaltin.com. Follow him on Twitter and Facebook; you can also listen to him on his weekly podcast Maltin on Movies, which he hosts with his daughter, Jessie.

  Retirement Advice from a Successful Banker Turned Personal Finance Columnist   Welcome to episode #11 of Social Security: Answers From The Experts with Martha Shedden. In this highly informative episode Martha sits down with Elliott Raphaelson and he shares some very useful information about Social Security benefits, and how one can take advantage of them in ways many people are unaware of.   As a former bank executive, university lecturer and court mediator helping people resolve financial disputes, Elliot Raphaelson has seen all sides of the savings game and is no novice when it comes to writing about money. A retired executive of Chase Manhattan Bank, he has taught courses in personal financial planning at The New School for Social Research and at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and he has conducted seminars for Chase, Dow Jones & Co. and other corporations. He is currently teaching personal financial planning for Rollins College in Orlando, Florida, at the Rollins Center for Lifelong Learning. Raphaelson's past publications include “How to Be Your Own Financial Planner” and “Planning Your Financial Future.” His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Town & Country, Vogue, Self, Savvy and Working Woman magazines. Raphaelson also worked as a certified mediator and trainer in a Florida county court, where he helped resolve personal financial problems of every description.   Here is what to expect on this week's show: A look into Elliott's background, which included 23 years at Chase bank before he became a highly respected writer. How and why Elliott started teaching a course of personal finance for the New School of Social Research, which greatly affected his career. Some of the most common questions that Elliott relieves for the columns he writers. How it is that his articles on Social Security get more questions and more of a response than his articles on other subjects. Some of the unexpected aspects of retirement finances that people routinely run into. Why your benefits can change greatly if you get divorced after 10 years of marriage as opposed to less than 10. Some useful information about survival benefits and how that works even if you get remarried or got divorce before one partner passed away. What changes to Social Security would Elliott make if he was in charge of the program.

Author Richard Sills draws from his experience as a former teacher of elementary classes in writing children's books. In his book, “Christmas Story”, he retells the well-known holiday narrative “The Night Before Christmas” so both the young and adults can enjoy this classic tale. In this story, he lets the adults experience the Christmas magic. While the children remain sleeping in their beds, it is the adult who gets to witness the wonders of Christmas. He meets Santa Clause and goes on a ride on Santa's sled while he delivers presents to children everywhere. He asks Santa about his presents and when he returns home, he wakes up his wife and joins his children. He finds his gift is that his wife is going to have a child. Through sleigh rides and visits with Santa Clause himself, this story shows that the holiday magic can be experienced by all ages. This book is available online and can be purchased at online bookstores.

Embracing Neurodiversity and Being an Adult with Julie Lythcott-Haims and Ryan Neale

I'm excited to welcome you to a special episode of the Mother's Quest Podcast that I am extremely grateful for, just in time for Thanksgiving, featuring the amazing Julie Lythcott-Haims and my 17-year-old son Ryan Neale. Julie is an incredible mother to two, a former Stanford Dean and New York Times bestselling author of the anti-helicopter parenting manifesto How to Raise an Adult, which gave rise to a TED Talk that has more than 5 million views. Her second book is the critically-acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American, which illustrates her experience as a Black and biracial person in white spaces. I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to interview Julie for the podcast several years ago when that book was first released. When I heard about Julie's new book Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, I knew I wanted to invite her back to the podcast again. And, I hoped that my son Ryan, on the threshold of adulthood himself, would join us in the conversation. The stars aligned and Ryan was available the day of the interview, enabling Julie, Ryan, and I to explore the concepts of her book, about navigating adulthood and embracing our differences, especially our neurodiversity, in deeply personal and relevant ways.  In this episode, I'm also excited to share a dedication from Deborah Reber, former podcast guest, fellow mother on a quest, and host of the TiLT Parenting Podcast.Deborah's heart-felt dedication honors Julie and other mothers raising neurodivergent children. I could not agree more with Deborah's assessment about what an exceptional human Julie is, about the power of Julie's commitment to put the stories of a diverse group of young people with different identities on the pages of her book, and about the impact of Julie's work for normalizing and honoring differences.  As you hear our conversation unfold, I know you'll be as struck as I was by Julie's wisdom and humility as she talks with Ryan, helping him to understand that he deserves to be cherished for who he is, that he can approach things like writing in ways that work for his differently-wired mind, and that he can seek out environments, like college, that enables him to play to his strengths and allow him to thrive. Since our conversation, Ryan was able to take Julie's advice to heart, using voice to text without shame to write his personal statement for college applications and sharing his personal insights on a panel at the recent Stanford Neurodiversity Summit. You can follow the link in the show notes to listen.Finally, this conversation is a demonstration that there is no destination to becoming an adult, but an ongoing journey of learning and discovery, that parents and their children can support one another in reciprocity with curiosity, and that we can all benefit from asking ourselves the question from Mary Oliver's famous poem, that Julie gives us as our challenge, “What is it that we want to do with our one wild and precious life?”As we approach Thanksgiving, the five-year birthday of the launch of Mother's Quest, and my 50th birthday, I can say there is nothing I'd rather do than hold space for a conversation like this one and share it with you.   About Julie: Julie Lythcott-Haims believes in humans and is deeply interested in what gets in our way.

Hoy en Día a Día, comenzamos conversando con el analista internacional Alejandro Laurnagaray de Urquiza, sobre la situación política en Sudán: “Este mes, debía haber una transición de la cabeza de ese consejo de transición hacia los civiles. Los militares debían ceder el poder a los civiles”, dijo. “Esto es la normalidad histórica: gobiernos militares asociados con civiles, golpes de Estado, muertos en las calles, manifestaciones. Es la triste realidad que vive Sudán desde hace décadas”, señaló el analista. El periodista especialista en procesos electorales, Eugenio Martínez, nos habló sobre los resultados de las elecciones regionales de Venezuela del día de ayer: “El nivel de participación del día de ayer, si obviamos la elección parlamentaria del 2020, es el más bajo de las últimas dos décadas… Estos resultados son un llamado de atención no sólo al G4, sino a esta nueva oposición que nace en torno a Fuerza Vecinal”, señaló. Martínez destacó: “En el caso de Vargas, los votos que necesita Olivares se quedan en las tarjetas de otros partidos opositores. Algo similar pasa en Táchira y en Lara”. Claudia Heiss, doctora en Ciencia Política de la New School for Social Research, nos habló sobre las elecciones presidenciales en Chile: “Los que ganan en Chile son personas que aparecen como outsiders o personas que desafían al establishment políticos, a los partidos y a los líderes más conocidos”, destacó, y opinó: “Para la segunda vuelta, la persona que creo tiene más chance de ganar en este momento es José Antonio Kast”. Desde Tegucigalpa nos atendió Óscar Ortiz Barahona, periodista y coordinador de prensa en TV Azteca Honduras, para hablarnos sobre el panorama político ante las próximas elecciones en Honduras: “El domingo se va a escoger al nuevo presidente para los próximos cuatro años, así como los diputados al Congreso de la República y alcaldes”, comentó. “Creo que la presidencia se va a disputar entre el Partido Libre y el Partido Nacional, porque son los candidatos con mayor auge e incidencia”, opinó Barahona. El director asociado para el equipo de la prevención de violencia con armas del center of American Program, Eugenio Weigend, nos habló sobre la absolución de todos los cargos contra Kyle Rittenhouse: “Había un hueco en la ley de Wisconsin en la que se interpretaba que un menor de edad podía usar un rifle. Ese hueco permitió al juez desechar esa acusación contra Rittenhouse”, explicó. “Con esto probablemente habrá más protestas que involucren armas de fuego, ya sea en contra de las protestas o siendo utilizadas por los protestantes”, señaló Weigend. Y para cerrar, el periodista freelance en Haití, Harold Isaac, nos habló sobre la liberación de dos de los diecisiete norteamericanos secuestrados por una banda armada en Haití: “Por los momentos no tenemos mucha información, sólo sabemos que dos de las personas secuestradas fueron liberadas… El grupo ha estado secuestrado desde el 16 de octubre, y hay muy poca información sobre el caso”, comentó.

In the fourth episode of Series 2 of our Podcast looking at research from the Equal Lives project, we talk to Michael Grätz from the University of Lausanne and Swedish Institute for Social Research. He discusses research published in Demography involving Equal Lives team members Jani Erola and Aleksi Karhula which looks at siblings to to see whether educational opportunities are equal for all in and across 6 countries. Transcript Christine Garrington  0:00   Welcome to DIAL a podcast where we tune in to evidence on inequality over the life course. In series two we're discussing emerging findings from DIAL's Equal Lives project. For this episode, we're talking to Michael Grätz from the University of Lausanne and Swedish Institute for Social Research about findings from research using siblings to see whether educational opportunities are equal for all in and across six countries. I started by asking him how studying the lives of siblings helps us to understand issues around equality of opportunity.  Michael Grätz  0:30   The simple argument of the study actually, of this approach of looking at the similarity of siblings in life outcomes is that this can be used as one measure of equality of opportunity. So equality of opportunity is something we're interested in, which means that how much control people have over their chances in life. The traditional approach to measure equality of opportunity is you take some indicator of the parents like parental education and parental occupation, parental income and relate it to some indicator of the children like their educational attainment. And then you get some measure which which is which has something to do with the equality of opportunity. However, the problem of that approach is that we know that it's going to overestimate equality and it's going to underestimate inequality, because there are also factors affecting life chances, which are not observed parental characteristics. The idea of this using the similarity between between siblings and their education to measure equality of opportunity as some of these factors that are not observed are actually shared by siblings. So siblings do have the same parents, they live, they grew up in the same neighbourhood. They go to the same school often and all these factors influence their life chances and they are they are combined if we produce an estimate of the similarity of siblings and education as a measure of equality of opportunity. Now, I should also say that this is still not a perfect measure of equality of opportunity because we also know that there are factors that vary between siblings that influence their life chances, but still we know also from the empirical side, that using sibling similarity is a better measure of equality of opportunity than relating some kind of characteristic to the child characteristic, which is the most often used. Christine Garrington  2:24   Okay, understood. And so for this research then, Michael, what was it that you were looking at specifically and why? Michael Grätz  2:29   So the main thing we were interested in is the traditional question whether equality of opportunity varies across society. So we were producing estimates of sibling similarity in education for different countries. And then we were also interested in whether sibling similarity in education varies across different outcomes. So there are different educational outcomes that we were interested in, and we're looking at three of them. So we're looking at cognitive skills. We're looking at school grades, and we're looking at educational attainment. Of course, these three are related to each other, but still, they capture slightly different things. And it's interesting to compare the cost and, and then the third thing we were interested in is whether they are some differences in sibling similarity across different social groups in society. So the idea is do the offspring of some sort of groups in society is more similar among each other than then the offspring of others.  Christine Garrington  3:31   Okay, took us through what you actually did to try to look at these, these issues then?  Michael Grätz  3:35   We asked the people we know to give us access to data and to produce these estimates. And this is really mainly a project where we produce comparative estimates of sibling similarity in education for different countries. So in our case, we have six countries. And then it's mainly data work, where you have to put together all these datasets the different data sources we use for the different countries come up with different estimates, try to harmonise the data, which is a very challenging thing because we are talking about data which has been collected for different purposes with different strategies in different countries. And we want to have something comparable, and then you have challenges of making those data after it has been collected comparable to each other. Christine Garrington  4:28   Yeah, you talked about the data there. So where did that information come from and why were those data particularly good sources? For this type of research? Michael Grätz  4:38   There are two strategies you can have if you want to do a comparative research comparing different countries. So the one strategy is you use data sources which have been collected with the purpose of comparing them so collected in different countries. That's, for instance, the PISA data that some of the listeners may know and the other approach is to use really what we think is the best data source for each country and compare them and it's the second approach we have been taking in this paper. And one reason also we have to take these papers, because we were interested in siblings and siblings, information on siblings is not what is something that is often collected. So what we're using in the data is really what we think are the best data source for each country. And this means that we're using different data sources in different countries. So we using in Finland, Norway and Sweden using administrative data, because those countries have administrative data sets which can be used for research. In Germany, in the US and the UK we using a survey data sets - these are surveys that have been collected in those countries for a long time. And they are very large and they're very reliable, and they have information on certain things. Christine Garrington  5:48   Fantastic. So time to dip into that data and talk a little bit about what you find. Let's talk about cognitive, cognitive skills first. What were the key things to emerge in and across the countries that you looked at there?  Michael Grätz  5:59   The main finding actually is that for cognitive skills, there isn't very much variation across countries. So meaning that equality of opportunity with respect to cognitive skills, something that was sort of similar across countries. And what we also saw because for cognitive skills we had two data sets for the US which we could use and those two data that gave slightly different results. And we see that the these differences which we find between the two datasets for the same country, about the same size as differences that we find between countries, so meaning that it's not necessarily easy to tell what the differences then across countries whether they are really there, or whether they are just due to the fact that we have used different data sources. Christine Garrington  6:46   Okay, now one of the other outcomes was school grades. What did you see there? Michael Grätz  6:50   So school grades was an interesting outcome because that's actually the only outcome for which we find that sibling similarity is lower in the US than in the Scandinavian countries. Meaning that equality of opportunity and school grades is higher in the US than in Sweden and Norway, which are the other two countries for which we have taken this outcome. The differences are not really large, but still this is this is something which goes in a different direction of what you usually expect and what you also have found for educational attainment.  Christine Garrington  7:21   On that note that was going to be my next question to you, so what overall education attainment - what did you see? Michael Grätz  7:27   So I think educational attainment in some sense, it's the outcome we care more about most of all, because this is really the final educational attainment that respondents have observed. And this is this is also the outcome where we find a pattern of growth across national variation which is aligned with what we usually think in both as scientists but also in the policy discourse. So meaning is that we find that sibling similarity in education is highest in Germany and in the US, meaning that equality of opportunity is lowest in these countries. On the other hand, sibling similarity in the education is lower in Norway, Sweden and the UK. So these three countries are both on the same level in that respect was maybe a bit surprising is that in Finland, sibling similarity in education is once more again much lower. So meaning that they also within the group of Scandinavian countries - Sweden, Norway and Finland - there's some variation. And there's more equality of opportunity in Finland with respect to educational attainment in Finland than Norway, and in Sweden. Christine Garrington  8:36   Did the siblings' family background matter at all and if so, how does that sort of play out? Michael Grätz  8:42   So the idea was that it could be that especially socioeconomically advantaged families can invest resources in the way that they make sure that all their children are succeeding well in life and getting a high level of education. So this is why we were speculating that there could be more sibling similarity among socioeconomically advantaged families. However, our empirical results were not really in line with this finding. So we didn't we didn't find much variation in that and the variation that we found was not really very robust across the different outcomes. Christine Garrington  9:17   So when it came to the question of which countries were providing the highest level of inequality of opportunity, what did you see there? Michael Grätz  9:24   So one thing is that the finding is not totally the same if you understand education and different things. So if you're looking at the use different outcomes, but if you focus on final educational attainment, so which is really the highest decree from school that children obtain, then inequality is highest in Germany and the US, equality is highest in Finland, which is which is a result of our study, which is also I think, in line with the general perception. However, there's also still two points I think that I would like to emphasise. So the first one is there's still a lot of variation within the Scandinavian countries. So there's more equality in Finland than in Norway in Sweden, meaning that probably, we see that the way to get to high equality is not totally obvious when see these results because even within a lot of countries with similar educational systems, and similar features of society, there is still variation. And the second point is that is cross country differences are not that large, meaning that in all societies actually there is a lot of inequality of opportunity. And this is something which in the policy discourse in some countries get lost. So I'm from Germany, and I know the policy discourse in Germany quite well and I always get the impression that the ideas are that in Finland, there would be perfect equality, but that's certainly not the case. So there's still a very high level of sibling similarity in education also in Finland. So we're talking about differences between countries - Yes, they are, they are there, but compared to the overall level how much similarity across siblings is there? In a society these cross-country differences are not that large. Christine Garrington  11:07   It is complex research. You know, you talked earlier about the harmonising of the data sets, etc. Really, really complex work with some complex results. But would you say for policymakers, particularly there are any clear messages or takeaways here around that policy discourse that you were alluding to? Michael Grätz  11:24   I think, probably the clearest message coming out from that results is that these simple ideas. And there are some simple ideas about around so for instance, this idea that inequality in education is largely related to income inequality in a country. The findings of our, our research, they are basically saying that these simple ideas don't work in the sense that they may explain, they may be explaining something but they're not going to explain everything. So there's probably so there's more inequality in education opportunity in countries where there is income inequality, but still, this doesn't explain all the cross country variation. That's what I wanted to say. The second point, I think, for policymakers is also to be aware of that in all countries, there is inequality in education. And that probably has to do with the fact that this is has also to do two processes happening outside of the school system. So this is why reforms of the educational system, they will never fully address equality of opportunity because there are processes occurring within families. They are also contributing to inequality of educational opportunity. And I think this is something that policymakers should be at least aware of.

In 2005 the Guinness Brewery at Park Royal, West London closed after seven decades of production. Tim Strangleman spent the last six months of the Brewery's life working with a photographer to record in words and picture the site before it closed. Subsequent research revealed an incredibly rich story of corporate cultural change and the transformation of work and the workplace. Drawing on material from his 2019 book, Voices of Guinness: An Oral History of the Park Royal Brewery, Strangleman, Professor of Sociology, in the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, University of Kent, Canterbury, reflects on what that story tells us about work meaning, identity and organizational life in the second decade of the twenty-first century. Our show is excerpted from Strangleman's Zoom presentation at the October 5 edition of Our Daily Work/Our Daily Lives, the lecture series sponsored by the Michigan Traditional Arts Program and the Labor Education Program at Michigan State University.

Join Haymarket Books and Salvage for a discussion of Fortress Europe, Fortress USA: How Borders Work Contemporary capitalism relies heavily on an inter-connected working class which extends across borders. Cross-border production and supply chains, logistics networks, and retail and service firms have aligned and fused a growing number of workers into one common class, regardless of where they happen to live. While money moves without restriction, the movement of displaced migrant workers across borders is restricted, punished—often violently so. And all of this is before imperial adventures and decades of neoliberal structural adjustment policies conspire to create the dire circumstances that lead to “refugee crises.” In both the US and across Europe this context has been seized on and converted to political fodder by mainstream parties of the liberal and the reactionary varieties. While often flavored differently—from outright scapegoating of migrants to handwringing calls for ‘kinder-gentler' deportation regimes—the growth and violence of the police state dedicated to the repression of transborder populations has proceeded unabated for decades. Drawing on Justin Akers Chacón's new book "The Border Crossed Us", and Chloe Haralambous's work with Sea-Watch, this Salvage Live event will look at the differences and similarities between Fortress USA and Fortress Europe, examine how to effectively dismantle their respective border regimes, and aim to explain how borders work (and for whom). The conversation will be hosted by Annie Olaloku-Teriba and Barnaby Raine. This discussion will be part of the ongoing Salvage Live events series, hosted by Haymarket Books. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Justin Akers Chacón is an activist, labor unionist, and educator living in the San Diego-Tijuana border region.

Computational models of urbanism—smart cities that use data-driven planning and algorithmic administration—promise to deliver new urban efficiencies and conveniences. Yet these models limit our understanding of what we can know about a city. A City Is Not a Computer: Other Urban Intelligences (Princeton UP, 2021) reveals how cities encompass myriad forms of local and indigenous intelligences and knowledge institutions, arguing that these resources are a vital supplement and corrective to increasingly prevalent algorithmic models. Shannon Mattern begins by examining the ethical and ontological implications of urban technologies and computational models, discussing how they shape and in many cases profoundly limit our engagement with cities. She looks at the methods and underlying assumptions of data-driven urbanism, and demonstrates how the “city-as-computer” metaphor, which undergirds much of today's urban policy and design, reduces place-based knowledge to information processing. Mattern then imagines how we might sustain institutions and infrastructures that constitute more diverse, open, inclusive urban forms. She shows how the public library functions as a steward of urban intelligence, and describes the scales of upkeep needed to sustain a city's many moving parts, from spinning hard drives to bridge repairs. Incorporating insights from urban studies, data science, and media and information studies, A City Is Not a Computer offers a visionary new approach to urban planning and design. Shannon Mattern is professor of anthropology at the New School for Social Research. Her books include Code and Clay, Data and Dirt: Five Thousand Years of Urban Media and The New Downtown Library: Designing with Communities. She lives in New York City.

Relationships, Boundaries, and Healing Childhood Trauma | This episode is brought to you by HigherDOSE and InsideTracker.It's part of the human condition to run away from pain. Most of us have habits that we acquired as a way to cope with painful childhood experiences or traumas, which unfortunately don't serve us as adults. These habits can manifest as addiction in a wide variety of forms, from substance abuse to overworking. If you feel a sense of deep guilt, without recognizing the source of it, you're not alone. As children we pick up the energy around us, start to think things are our fault, and we don't know how to drop that feeling as we grow up. This has a very heavy impact on our emotional, mental, and physical health. In today's mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Gabor Mate and Dr. Nicole LePera about detangling our traumatic life experiences to live more aware lives.Dr. Gabor Mate, is a retired physician who, after 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience, worked for over a decade in Vancouver's Downtown EastSide with patients challenged by drug addiction and mental illness. Dr. Mate is the bestselling author of four books published in twenty-five languages, and is an internationally renowned speaker highly sought after for his expertise on addiction, trauma, childhood development, and the relationship of stress and illness. Dr. Nicole LePera was trained in clinical psychology at Cornell University and the New School for Social Research. As a clinical psychologist in private practice, Dr. LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients—and for herself—she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves. She is the creator of the #SelfHealers movement where people from around the world are joining together in community to take healing into their own hands.

In fact, sauna use can reduce inflammation, stress, and improve detoxification and energy production down to the cellular level. But sometimes we can't break the bank to make this happen. So when I was introduced to the portable HigherDose Infrared Sauna blanket and Infrared PEMF mat, I got super excited because it's actually an affordable way to get all of the benefits of sauna use including increased blood flow, better sleep, a calmer nervous system, and way more.
