Podcast Episode: Staying Balanced During Major Life Changes

March 9, 2020

We are walking transitions. We chase the next thing, trying to fill this underlying void of “not enough.” We so desperately grasp at everything to stay the same, and when change comes, we are scared.

Fear exists with change. When we can accept that fear is there, though, we can also ask at the same time “What do I have to do to get to where I need to be? How do I create the life I want?”

In today's episode Jake welcomes his long time friend Chris Barry and they discuss how to go through transitions and changes in our lives.

Podcast Episode: Homelessness and Addiction

Podcast Episode: Homelessness and Addiction

January 27, 2020

Today we are joined by two great Gentleman. We welcome Pat Cashell and Austin Pollard to our show. They discuss homelessness and addiction. 

Tragically, homelessness and addiction go hand in hand. The end result of homelessness is often substance abuse, and substance abuse often contributes to homelessness. The National Coalition for the Homeless has found that 38% of homeless people are alcohol dependent, and 26% are dependent on other harmful chemicals.

In addition to suffering mental illness, homeless individuals suffering mental conditions are more likely to be victims of assault, further needing the comfort they temporarily find in harmful substances. Homeless individuals suffering difficult mental and emotional conditions may find it convenient to self-medicate with harmful substances as well. The combination of mental disorders and substance abuse is known as dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders. While it may seem that difficult mental conditions can be suppressed by drugs and alcohol use, this actually creates a destructive cycle of dependency.

We hope you enjoy this episode.

Podcast Episode: Forced Labour, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Podcast Episode: Forced Labour, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

January 14, 2020

Human trafficking is a crime that forcefully exploits women, men, and children. According to the United Nations, human trafficking affects every country in the world, but it’s not talked about enough. So we’re talking about it.

Trafficking involves transporting someone into a situation of exploitation. This can include forced labor, marriage, prostitution, and organ removal. This kind of exploitation is known by a few different names -- “human trafficking,” “trafficking of persons,” and “modern slavery” are the ones accepted by the US Department of State.

It’s estimated that internationally there are between 20 million and 40 million people in modern slavery today. Assessing the full scope of human trafficking is difficult because so cases so often go undetected, something the United Nations refers to as “the hidden figure of crime.

In today's episode, we joined by John Malcolm and Ron Toft where they discuss in depth trafficking and modern day slavery.
