Redefining Healthcare With Dr. Tiffany Lester
Is our country's obsession with health actually making us healthier? Even before COVID-19 hit, health and wellness in modern America was big business, and a growing feature of our social media feeds. However, is our society focused on the right aspects of health or are we viewing it in a healthy way? This week we're getting a refreshingly holistic take on the world of health. Dr. Tiffany Lester is here to shed some light on this complex and often misunderstood field, including:  * Why it's a mistake to see healthcare as a debate between traditional medicine and functional medicine, and how they really can help inform each other.  * Why properly managing sleep and stress needs to be a bigger focus for most Americans.  * What all the fuss about gut health is really about and why we all should nourish our microbiome.  * Why it can be risky to take trendy supplements like Ashwagandha, magnesium, or fish oil without understanding them properly first.  In a year defined by one of the biggest health crises of the modern era, this episode has eye-opening perspectives and practical advice for all of us to live healthier, happier lives.  *Episode Show Notes:* * Learn more about Tiffany on her Instagram page and her home base on Parsley Health.  * Season 2 of the podcast The Dream is all about the wellness industry.  * TIffany recommended using Google Scholar and PubMed for legitimate health and nutrition studies.  * Tiffany says that higher-priced fish oils are often higher quality.  * Tiffany's go-to karaoke song is anything by Whitney Houston.

098: Elections and Political Engagement with Kids w/ John Shallman
Those of you who listen to this podcast are people who are very active and engaged in the political process. I tend to be a political junkie myself. However, the 2016 election devastated me and I wasn’t interested in dragging my mental health through that ordeal again. So I haven’t been as engaged this time around. That being said, I’m still a firm believer in being engaged in responsible citizenship and I know that journey begins at home. That sense of empowerment for the political process has to start when our kids are young. That is why I brought special guest John Shallman onto the podcast. John is a political campaign strategist. He is also the author of the debut novel, Return From Siberia, a story about politics and family. I was so honored to have John join me for this conversation. Tune in to hear incredible advice from someone with many years of experience in politics and campaigning. Show Highlights: * How John’s career as a campaign strategist intersects with his novel. * His experience growing up in a tight-knit political community. * How he ended up becoming a consultant. * How to enfranchise children for the political process while also telling them they can’t vote. * Practical tips for how parents and schools can engage children in the political process. * How to explain to kids that not everyone thinks the same way. * How to encourage healthy debate when the national discourse sets a bad example. * How to help our kids consume media and discern fake news. * The balance in raising skeptics who still have a sense of wonder about the world. * How to engage kids in politics in a way that fits their personality.

Should the Church Be Political?
Jason Fileta and Michael Wear join William Matthews, Dr. Hillary McBride, and Michael Gungor to talk about politics, the church, and how we can wade through the ways these interconnected spaces in our lives affect ourselves and those around us. Michael Wear is a leading strategist, speaker and practitioner at the intersection of faith, politics and public life. He advised President Obama, as well as some of the nation’s leading foundations, non-profits and public leaders, on some of the thorniest issues and exciting opportunities that define American life today. He has argued that the spiritual health and civic character of individuals is deeply tied to the state of our politics and public affairs.  Jason Fileta grew up in Wheaton, IL the son of Egyptian immigrants. The plight of the persecuted church in Egypt compelled him to commit his life to fighting for a more just world. He was chosen as a delegate to the G8 Summit in Scotland. The delegates advocated to leaders for debt cancellation for impoverished nations, fair trade policies, and increased assistance to impoverished nations. This helped launch his long-term work in advocacy focused on ending extreme poverty. You can watch The Liturgists Podcast being recorded live each week (as well as The Alien Podcast) by joining The Liturgists. We love having everyone together where we can talk during the recordings.
