Episode 14: Citizens United, Judicial Elections, and Mass Incarceration
Play episode · 59 min

How do judges affect mass incarceration, and what role do judicial elections play? Today we’re looking at a topic that doesn’t get a lot of attention - the relationship between judges, corporate money, big business interests, and mass incarceration. We talk to Alicia Bannon, Program Manager at the Brennan Center, about the role of Judicial Elections in mass incarceration, and how fear-mongering is used to incentivize harsh decision making.

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.

Ep. 109 - Dan Koch "The Rapture/End Times Theology"
Guest Info/BIo: This week I have a fascinating conversation with Dan Koch. Dan got his start in professional songwriting in 2002 with his band Sherwood. They released three full albums and a handful of shorter EPs, toured the US, Europe & Japan, and generally had a great time. As that season of life ended, he settled in Seattle and began transitioning into writing music for film & TV. He’s been fortunate to work with some great people, and has landed some 80+ national TV & radio spots in about 8 years. Dan is also host of the You Have Permission, Depolarize!, and Reconstruct podcasts.
