My Favorite Podcasts

Revisionist HistoryRevisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell’s journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past — an event, a person, an idea, even a song — and asks whether we got it right the first time. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.

From Season 5, Hedwig’s Lost Van Gogh  - An escape from war-torn Germany. Lavish dinners with Hollywood royalty. A Swedish baron and a dime-store heiress: we explore the long journey of a Van Gogh still life — and what it says about the real value of the things we treasure.

Revisionist History

The Last Archive is a show about the history of truth, and the historical context for our current fake news, post-truth moment. It’s a show about how we know what we know, and why it seems, these days, as if we don’t know anything at all anymore. The show is driven by host Jill Lepore’s work as a historian uncovering the secrets of the past the way a detective might.

The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos
You might think you know what it takes to lead a happier life… more money, a better job, or Instagram-worthy vacations. You’re dead wrong. Yale professor Dr. Laurie Santos has studied the science of happiness and found that many of us do the exact opposite of what will truly make our lives better. Based on the psychology course she teaches at Yale — the most popular class in the university’s 300-year history — The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos will take you through the latest scientific research and share some surprising and inspiring stories that will change the way you think about happiness.

My Favorite Treats & Food

Oat Haus granola butter - this is by far my all time favorite spread! Actually, I am obsessed with this granola butter ... I discovered Oat Haus (formerly Kween) about a year ago. The pandemic had me looking for easy solutions to my meal planning. I signed up for Sunbasket (which is also an awesome company you should check out!) where they have some additional food items that can be purchased as add-ons. I found this spread, and the rest is history . . . My favorite flavor of Oat Haus granola butter is the 'Original'. I also love the vanilla flavor too. There's chocolate, blueberry and other fun flavors. I pair this with another of my favorite treats, Ozery Muesli Morning Rounds made by Ozery Bakery - Oat Haus granola butter is also awesome on apples, and toppings on yogurt or baked goods too - check out the Oat Haus Blog for recipes, ideas and etc . . . give 'em a follow on their Oat.Haus Instagram Page too!

My Favorite Personal Care Products

The Little Seed Farm has goats and other things! I happened upon this company when I was searching for natural sustainable personal care skin products like deodorant. This artist may have a proverbial thick skin, but it's mighty sensitive to all sorts of added junk that's just not necessary for the skin. I love that this is a small company. I also like glass jars - they use glass! Free from plastic and the things that come with plastic - and, glass is more recyclable than plastic ... As they're InstaPage says: 100% natural, non-toxic, organic deodorant, skincare and soap. Made on the farm with (plant & goat) power and ❤️. good for your body | good for the earth -- check this company out!
