CARE: December 2023 podcast playlist

Caring is a multifaceted aspect of human nature that encompasses both self-care and caregiving for others. It involves a delicate balance between nurturing oneself and extending that nurturing spirit to those around us. Self-care is an essential foundation, acknowledging the importance of maintaining our own physical, mental, and emotional well-being. While it can empower us, it has also been commoditized and turned into a marketing tactic. Caregiving, on the other hand, is an essential component of any thriving society, but it has often gone overlooked on un(der)paid. These five episodes spotlight various aspects of care – from self-care to childcare to eldercare to memory care.




Community Responses to Disability: Podcast Playlist

Community Responses to Disability: Podcast Playlist

It is estimated that one billion people, or 15% of the world’s population, experience some form of disability. Over the years, there has been some progress in recognizing the importance of accessibility and inclusion. But our governments and workplaces and communities still have much work to do to embrace and empower people with disabilities. This month’s episodes look at different types of community responses to disability (some more helpful than others) in hopes that we learn more about what we can do to increase inclusivity for all.

Creativity: Listening List

Creativity: Listening List

I used to think creativity was something you either had or you didn’t. If you were creative, you would be drawn to something like writing or playing an instrument at an early age and continue to practice until you were really good. And if you weren’t really good at something creative by the time you were an adult, it simply meant you didn’t have the right passion or the right DNA. I failed at pretty much every instrument I tried growing up and nothing “creative” seemed to stick. Fortunately, I now know this binary view of creativity is complete hogwash, thanks in large part to podcasts. In an interview in one of the episodes below, author Elizabeth Gilbert says that the term “creative people” is redundant. All of us are creative, and sometimes you just need some permission to see yourself that way and to re-frame to yourself what creativity even means. My aim for the below list is to explore how the idea of creativity has evolved over time, what it actually is, and how we can use it everyday. I’m also hoping these episodes spark a little creative inspiration for you to follow your curiosity, like they did for me.
