Lehua Kamalu captains a vast, double-hulled ocean canoe crafted to the exact specifications of the seafaring vessels used by her ancestors. She and her crew are making a 2,500 mile journey between Tahiti and Hawaii, the same one original settlers of the South Pacific traversed, the same journeys historians once struggled to believe possible without today's technology. The stakes are high and they sail the way their ancestors sailed, taking their cues from the water and wind. Lehua stays alert and patient hours on end. It's only by being grounded in the signs that Lehua can anticipate the possibilities. And it's only by staying present that Lehua can take in the magic of the open water — and draw from that magic to sustain herself when each journey ends, as they inevitably do.Each episode of Meditative Story combines the emotional pull of first-person storytelling with immersive music and gentle mindfulness prompts.

Among Ancient Romans, bestiarii (singular bestiarius) were those who went into combat with beasts, or were exposed to them. It is conventional[1] to distinguish two categories of bestiarii: the first were those condemned to death via the beasts (see damnatio ad bestias) and the second were those who faced them voluntarily, for pay or glory (see venatio).[2] The latter are sometimes erroneously called gladiators; to their contemporaries, however, the term gladiator referred specifically to one who fought other men. The contemporary term for those who made a career out of participating in arena "hunts" was venatores. Content Warning: Cruelty to animals. Our theme song was written and performed by Anna Bosnick.

CELEBRATING PRIDE MONTH WITH BEE | For this years annual pride month episode, the hotties are joined by Bee - she/they (@_gossipgoth_) to discuss all things queer, polyamory and existing outside the norm. From the first feelings of fruitiness as a kid whilst watching 'The L Word' to stolen kisses from the girl next door, Bee has been so open and honest with us about their journey and experiences of queerness throughout their life.  We also discussed Bee's life as a polyamorous person and the intersection of their queer/poly identities, dating apps and how body modifications impact her. Finally, we also acknowledge that pride month is a time to recognise our roots and queer history and to celebrate the gender non-conforming people of colour who paved the way for our rights.Find Bee on Instagram @_gossipgoth_Follow us on socials:HGT Instagram: @hotgirlstheoryHGT Twitter: /hotgirlstheoryHGT TikTok: @hgtpodcastAsh's Instagram: @ashleighxoroseIndi's Instagram: @fueledbyindiCheck out our brand new website HERE!Support the show:BUY US A COFFEE Donations from $5 (AUD) via this linkBECOME A PATRON Sign up from $3 (AUD) a monthRate us on Apple Podcasts & SpotifyArtwork by Kaila, @whinemum on InstagramMusic in this episode from Epidemic Sound:Harvio - MamboDJ Mayson - Pretty Peoplespring gang - SteamDAJANA - DoucheLeDorean ft.

A cigarette is a narrow cylinder containing burnable material, typically tobacco, that is rolled into thin paper for smoking. The cigarette is ignited at one end, causing it to smolder; the resulting smoke is orally inhaled via the opposite end. Cigarette smoking is the most common method of tobacco consumption. Manufacturers have described the cigarette as "a drug administration system for the delivery of nicotine in acceptable and attractive form".[1][2][3][4] The term cigarette, as commonly used, refers to a tobacco cigarette, but the word is sometimes used to refer to other substances, such as a cannabis cigarette or an herbal cigarette. A cigarette is distinguished from a cigar by its usually smaller size, use of processed leaf, and paper wrapping, which is typically white. Our theme song was written and performed by Anna Bosnick.

What does our relationship with the dead tell us about the living? Anthropologists learn about ancient cultures by studying their burial sites, but could we do the same with contemporary America? Those are the questions that University of Chicago anthropologist and historian Shannon Lee Dawdy set out to answer in her new book, American Afterlives: Reinventing Death In The Twenty-first Century. What she uncovered was a discreet revolution happening around American death rituals and practices, especially the rise in cremation after the tragedies of Sept. 11. According to one funeral director, there have been more changes in the death industry in the last ten years than the last hundred. And those changes reveal all sorts of societal and cultural shifts in response to climate change, COVID-19 and the personalization of everything, including DIY funerals and green burials.
