The hidden power of mushrooms | Julian Mitchell | Unstoppable #114
Did you know that mushrooms can change their DNA to make cotton, leather, and even polyester becoming food for them? That penicillin comes from the fungi kingdom? That there’s a phobia to mushrooms and they’re even considered the Earth’s natural internet? These are just some of the amazing facts about mushrooms that Julian Mitchell shared with me in this episode of Unstoppable. Julian is the CEO of Life Cykel, an evolutionary focused mycelium biotechnology company, whose mission is to enable people and the environment to grow healthier with mushrooms. He co-founded Life Cykel with Ryan Creed in 2015 and rapidly grew their business by focusing on producing the highest quality bioavailable full spectrum mushroom liquid extracts as well as some of the highest quality mushroom products. They offer an incredible range of products and services for health and planetary harmony, all consisting of the humble mushroom. They have liquid extracts, mushroom powder, mushroom protein, and even grow kits that give people the opportunity to grow their own mushrooms at home. Life Cykel also works closely with the National Mushroom Network, Mushroom honey, and Beemunity, products that support the immunity of bees. Life Cykel has been featured in a range of media including Channel 9, the Sydney Morning Herald, The Joe Rogan Experience, SBS and Beauticate. Now we have the pleasure of having Julian on Unstoppable, sharing with us his journey as an entrepreneur, from being a physiotherapist to becoming one of the most environmentally conscious mushroom farmers in Australia. Whether you’re a plant enthusiast, an entrepreneur or you’re just a curious soul who would like to learn the secrets of the fungi kingdom, this episode is for you!

Beyond Bitchy: Mastering the Art of Boundaries
Beyond Bitchy: Mastering the Art of Boundaries
Vicki Tidwell Palmer, LCSW
#119- ENCORE - Is Free Speech Really Free?
There's been a lot of talk recently about free speech—specifically, news stories about a somewhat infamous media figure who was banned from several major social media sites. It got me to thinking about the limits of free speech, which is all about boundaries. In this episode I'll talk about why boundaries have a lot to do with free speech, as well as how freedom of speech operates in both physical and virtual space. Biggest Takeaways From Episode #28: * Although each of us is free to say or do whatever we want, freedom to do what we want also comes with certain consequences—positive, neutral, or negative. * Boundaries create limits, but they also create space. The amount of space a boundary creates has a lot to do with the limit that is created. For example, if you put a fence around your property, you’re creating a clear limit, but you’re also creating more private space that can only be accessed by you. * Free speech is determined by who controls the space where speech occurs. Whoever owns or controls a space gets to decide what the limits are. This is true whether it’s a physical space (such as your house or a business’ office) or a virtual space (such as a social media site, website, or blog). * It’s not anyone's responsibility to provide a platform or vehicle for another person to get information they want. For example, if you're following someone on Twitter and they get banned because of Twitter's boundaries, Twitter is not responsible for providing you a platform to connect with the person they banned. Today, just about anyone with a small amount of resources and money can create their own virtual space, which makes giving and getting information freely far more accessible than at any other time in human history. Highlights from Episode #28: * We hear about the topic of today’s episode, as well as the inspiration for it. [00:48] * Vicki reads the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution for listeners who may need a refresher. She then digs into the topic of consequences. [03:11] * Boundaries not only create limits; they also create space. Vicki explores this concept, then links it to the concept of free speech. [07:32] * Vicki gives examples of what it means for people who own a particular physical or virtual space to make decisions about who and how others are permitted to express themselves in those spaces. [12:04] * We learn how the concepts Vicki has been exploring relate to virtual space. [16:51] * Vicki points out that just about anyone with some resources can create their own virtual space to say whatever they want to say. [22:03] * There are some environments that are truly oppressive in terms of what they allow people to say or express, and when you encounter one of those, it's probably best to find another community or environment that allow you greater freedom of expression.

Episode 502: Luke Worsfold. Inside Addiction
Today’s episode is about taking your experience and using it to help those who’ve been impacted by trauma. My guest today is Luke Worsfold. Luke grew up with a drug-addicted mother who died when he was 10. The experience of her death caused severe trauma throughout Luke’s life, which led to Luke’s own drug addiction. When Luke realized that he, himself, was heading towards his own death, it was in that moment that he decided to make a commitment to become the best version of myself and lead others by example. Luke has since founded Lisa, Inside Addiction , a treatment center to help individuals with substance abuse problems. *In This Episode* * Luke's website: Lisa, Inside Addiction ( https://insideaddiction.co.uk/ ) * Luke’s Programs ( https://insideaddiction.co.uk/programs/ ) * In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/155643880X/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?creative=9325&creativeASIN=155643880X&ie=UTF8&linkCode=as2&linkId=0b348a4aa370ec87db041bc01f3a5860&tag=wescoatrapro-20 ) , Gabor Mate, M.D. * Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1401307787/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?creative=9325&creativeASIN=1401307787&ie=UTF8&linkCode=as2&linkId=b9fddd8c97721cf0d836d4bfeef551f3&tag=wescoatrapro-20 ) , Jon Kabat-Zinn Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/the-trauma-therapist-podcast-with-guy-macpherson-phd-inspiring-interviews-with-thought-leaders-in-the-field-of-trauma/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
