#126 “Freedom, Love, Joy and Peace” with Theresa

Today it’s just me, Theresa, talking about freedom and independence with a little help from some musicians and the book, You Are Now Less Dumb by David McRaney. Why this show? Why this format? The 4th of July stirs up lots of thoughts and feelings for me so I seek to find some answers or get clearer on the narratives that drive these thoughts and feelings. We’ll dive into the Declaration of Independence, some history, a cursory overview of narrative bias and the backfire effect which is basically a biased narrative problem, and how these biases may affect how we view our history and the current events unfolding in our world today. Oh our poor, little, infallible brains!

NOTE: I cannot play all these songs in their entirety on the podcast because of rights so if you want to hear the show as it aired you can catch it on Radio Kingston’s website!

Here’s the NPR playlist that I reference, and the following songs are played in an effort to expand the base of narratives that shape our understanding of history. 

“Joanne Little” by Sweet Honey in the Rock, “Supper Time” by Ethel Waters, “Strange Fruit” by Billie Holiday, “Another Man Done Gone” and “Trouble So Hard” by Vera Hall, “Alabama” by John Coltrane, “Wade the Water to My Knees” by the McIntosh County Shouters, “Land of the Free” by Esperanza Spalding, “America” by Prince. Here’s a Spotify playlist with the available songs.

Today’s show was produced, engineered and edited by me 🙂 blame me!!

We also heard music from Shana Falana!

#24 Jen Shagawat (Shellshag, Starcleaners) “Freedoms and Staying True to Your Dreams Through it All”

It’s Independence Day, and today we’re Girl Talking about the meaning of independence for ourselves and for everyone. For those of you wanting to work on your own white privilege, check out Wild Mystic Woman on Instagram.

Shana and Theresa continue the conversation around eating habits and healing ourselves, freeing ourselves you might say from the emotional pull of food, and Shana shares from her journaling on her own personal beliefs. If you want support in this conversation around intuitive eating, tune into the Food Psych Podcast with Christy Harrison.

We also get to hear a fun and wild ride of an interview Shana did with her original "i want what SHE has" gal pal, Jen Shagawat, musician and producer, owner of Jewel Street Studio in Brooklyn, NY, drummer and singer for the band Shellshag, co-creator of Shellshonic Shag-O-Vision and owner of Starcleaner Records. Check out Jen’s doc on the band the Slits HERE! Whew…enjoy the show, and let’s work together to make sure all beings are safe, happy and free!

Next week’s guests are Cal Patch, maker extraordinaire and Theresa’s sewing guru, and Hawley Hussey, artist, writer, educator and activist. Until then, Love YOURSELF and uplift one another!!!
