Episode 115 - Daniel MintieDan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Daniel Mintie. Daniel's bio from his website:"I'm a cognitive-behavioral therapist, teacher and writer based in Taos, New Mexico USA and available for consultation globally via the worldwide web. I have 28 years' experience helping men, women and children heal from anxiety, depression and the sometimes crippling aftereffects of trauma. I love this work and am inspired and humbled by the determination and courage of those I've had the privilege of helping reclaim lives of peace, joy, and relational happiness.Before returning to school to train as a cognitive-behavioral therapist I worked as an international contract journalist, writing about local communities worldwide struggling to secure economic and political justice and establish a sustainable relationship to food, water and land.As is the case with many of my patients and colleagues, I first experienced feelings of irrational sadness and worry as a child. As a young boy I found these feelings very mysterious. Where did they come from? Why did they go away? I did not yet understand how we ourselves create such emotion as a result of our beliefs, thought patterns and behaviors.Also in grade school I developed a lifelong interest in contemplative spiritual practice, yoga and martial arts. I’ve incorporated these interests into my clinical work, research and teaching in the areas of mind/body medicine. Today, in addition to my clinical work, I teach CBT and integrative medicine at universities and training centers around the world.After close to 30 years of clinical practice – and half of century of investigating the human condition – I have an ever-clearer understanding of the roots of human anguish. At the end of the day our emotional torment arises when we find ourselves unable to respond to the sometimes enormous challenges the world brings to us. Our suffering – anxiety, depression, PTSD – itself speaks to our desire successfully to meet such challenges. It is my passion, honor and life work to assist my patients’ doing exactly this."Website: https://danielmintie.comNote: Guests create their own bio description for each episode.The Curiosity Hour Podcast is hosted and produced by Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund.Please visit our website for more information:thecuriosityhourpodcast.comThe Curiosity Hour Podcast is listener supported!

Episode 114 - Andrea Chalupa.Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Andrea Chalupa. Her bio: "I was born and raised in Davis, California, and currently live in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating from the University of California, at Davis with High Honors in History, with a focus on Soviet History, I studied Ukrainian at the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and the International School of Ukrainian Studies in L’viv, Ukraine. As a journalist, I cut my teeth in the newsrooms of Conde Nast Portfolio and AOL Money & Finance, and have written articles and columns for The Daily Beast, Forbes, TIME, and The Atlantic. Since 2004, while finishing my History thesis on the role of religion in Ukraine’s independence movement at the fall of the Soviet Union, I began dreaming up a screenplay that would take me fifteen years to research, write, and produce. That screenplay became MR. JONES, directed by three-time Academy Award-nominee Agnieszka Holland and starring James Norton, Vanessa Kirby, Peter Sarsgaard, and Joseph Mawle as George Orwell. Much of the research for the film was compiled into my book Orwell and The Refugees: The Untold Story of Animal Farm, which has been taught in classrooms in Canada and Ukraine through the genocide education program Orwell Art. As surreal as this journey has been against the backdrop of growing authoritarianism around the world, I met along the way brave human rights activists and journalists who continuously restored my faith. In January 2014, I helped launch #DigitalMaidan, a hashtag of the revolution in Ukraine; #MarchForTruth, a nationwide protest on June 3rd, 2017 demanding transparency and accountability in the Russia investigation, and helped lead a crowdfunding campaign to turn an oligarch’s abandoned private zoo in Ukraine into an animal refuge. Over the years, I have spoken about Ukraine and Russia in the World Forum for Democracy at the Council of Europe, the Personal Democracy Forum at New York University, the National Press Club in Washington, DC, the National Arts Club in New York City, and went on a two-week university lecture tour of Canada, including McGill University, Carleton University, and the University of Toronto. And yes, I have a sister, Alexandra Chalupa, called one of the most influential people of the 2016 election by the investigative journalist Michael Isikoff who, along with David Corn, the first journalist to publish an interview with Christopher Steele, features my sister in their bestselling book Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump. The first three episodes of Gaslit Nation, recapping the 2016 election like a crime scene, explain how my sister was harassed and risked her life and career to alert the media about Paul Manafort and the Kremlin’s attack on our democracy as it was happening."Website: http://www.andreachalupa.comTwitter: https://twitter.com/AndreaChalupaPodcast: https://www.gaslitnationpod.comNote: Guests create their own bio description for each episode.The Curiosity Hour Podcast is hosted and produced by Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund.Please visit our website for more information:thecuriosityhourpodcast.comThe Curiosity Hour Podcast is listener supported!

Episode 113 - Rebecca GeisslerDan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Rebecca Geissler. Rebecca is a millennial who, after uprooting her life to spend 5 months walking from San Francisco to NYC, threw off her traditional expectations of herself and randomly applied for a job to be a flight attendant. Her new favorite phrase is "it's an adventure" for everything, whether it's a small change of schedule, or a whole new destination. She strongly thinks finding happiness is more important than following the traditional expectations of success.Note: Guests create their own bio description for each episode.The Curiosity Hour Podcast is hosted and produced by Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund.Please visit our website for more information:thecuriosityhourpodcast.comThe Curiosity Hour Podcast is listener supported!

Episode 112 - Moriah Ratner.Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Moriah Ratner. Moriah is a freelance photographer based in Portland, Oregon. She graduated from the photojournalism program in the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in May of 2018. During the summer of 2016, Moriah interned with The Hill, a political newspaper on Capitol Hill, as a press photographer covering hearings, press conferences and breaking news on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Following this experience, she spent a week interning at Annie Leibovitz's studio in New York City, assisting with administrative tasks and researching shoot concepts. Moriah was a staff photographer for Syracuse University's independent newspaper, The Daily Orange, and previously held a position as an assistant photo editor. This past summer, Moriah was the photography/videography intern for the Naples Daily News in Southwest Florida. She recently completed a position as an assistant digital content producer at Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), an NPR affiliated radio station. At OPB, Moriah pitched and produced a short documentary video about a family with a 4-year-old daughter battling terminal brain cancer. Personal projects are often associated with aspects of childhood in how young adolescents cope with trauma. Moriah documented the journey of a 13-year-old girl with a rare and terminal brain cancer for almost two years in hopes of de-stigmatizing the ways in which the public conceptualizes childhood cancer. The story has been published in the Washington Post, National Geographic, and NPR. Moriah is a member of WPOW, NPPA, and the White House News Photographers Association. Moriah is the 2018 recipient of WPOW’s Lena Grant, the 2018 recipient of NPPF's Reid Blackburn and Richard Clarkson Scholarships, and the 2017 recipient of the Virginia News Photographers Association George Smith Memorial Scholarship. Moriah won first place in the 2018 Hearst Journalism Awards Program for Picture Story/Series and gold in the documentary category of the 73rd College Photographer of the Year contest. Moriah attended the Eddie Adams Workshop XXX and the New York Times 2018 Portfolio Review.

Episode 110 - Jane ElliottDan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Jane Elliott. Jane is an internationally known teacher, lecturer, diversity trainer, and recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education, exposes prejudice and bigotry for what it is, an irrational class system based upon purely arbitrary factors. And if you think this does not apply to you. . . you are in for a rude awakening. In response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, Jane Elliott devised the controversial and startling, "Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise." This, now famous, exercise labels participants as inferior or superior based solely upon the color of their eyes and exposes them to the experience of being a minority. Everyone who is exposed to Jane Elliott's work, be it through a lecture, workshop, or video, is dramatically affected by it.Website: https://janeelliott.comNote: Guests create their own bio description for each episode.The Curiosity Hour Podcast is hosted and produced by Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund.Please visit our website for more information:thecuriosityhourpodcast.comThe Curiosity Hour Podcast is listener supported!

Episode 108 - Julie Lythcott-HaimsDan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Julie Lythcott-Haims. Julie's bio: "We humans need agency in order to make our way forward; I am deeply interested in what impedes us.My first book, the 2015 New York Times bestseller How to Raise an Adult, details how a parent can rob a child from developing agency by over-parenting. It emerged from my decade as Stanford University’s Dean of Freshmen, where I was known for my fierce advocacy for young adults and my fierce critique of the growing trend of parental involvement in the day-to-day lives of college students which was becoming a nationwide trend. I received the university’s Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for creating “the” atmosphere that defines the undergraduate experience, and toward the end of my tenure as dean I began speaking and writing widely on the harm of helicopter parenting. How to Raise an Adult has been published in over two dozen countries and gave rise to a TED talk that became one of the top TED Talks of 2016 with over 4 million views, as well as a forthcoming sequel on how to be an adult, for young adults. Two years later I published Real American: A Memoir, a critically-acclaimed and award-winning memoir which examines racism through my experience as a Black and biracial person. In it, I detail my personal battle with the low self-esteem that American racism routinely inflicts on people of color, and depict how microaggressions in addition to blunt-force insults can puncture a person’s inner life with a thousand sharp cuts. Real American expresses also, through my path to self-acceptance, the healing power of community in overcoming the hurtful isolation of being incessantly considered “the other.”In addition to publishing two non-fiction books, my work has appeared throughout the media including in the New York Times, the Times Literary Supplement of London, the Chicago Tribune, The Atlantic, Parents, AsUs, the PBS News Hour, CBS This Morning, Good Morning America, The Today Show, National Public Radio and its affiliates, C-SPAN, the TD Jakes Show, and numerous podcasts and radio shows. I serve on the boards of Foundation for a College Education in East Palo Alto, CA, Global Citizen Year, in Oakland, CA, Common Sense Media, in San Francisco, and on the advisory board of Lean In in Menlo Park, CA. I am a member of the Peninsula chapter of Threshold Choir and I volunteer with the hospital program No One Dies Alone. I am a former corporate lawyer and Stanford dean, and I hold a BA from Stanford, a JD from Harvard, and an MFA in Writing from California College of the Arts. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my partner of over thirty years, our two teenagers, and my mother."

Episode 107 - Emily Fairfax, PhD.Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Emily Fairfax, PhD. Emily is an ecohydrologist and science story teller. This fall, Emily will be joining the Environmental Science and Resource Management department at California State University Channel Islands as an Assistant Professor. Emily recently finished her PhD in Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder, and prior to that she earned dual undergraduate degrees in chemistry and physics at Carleton College. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on the ecohydrology of wetlands and riparian areas, particularly those that have been impacted by beaver damming. Basically, she studies how water and plants and animals all relate to one another and influence each other.In addition to ecohydrology research, Emily is actively involved in science education research. She is especially interested in inclusive curriculum development. A firm believer that learning should be fun and accessible for all students, she recently developed a computer game called “Roll a Water-Check!” to teach the hydrologic cycle to high school and undergraduate students. Emily is currently testing the game in various classes and assessing its effectiveness as an educational tool. Emily is also an outspoken advocate and supporter for making field sciences accessible to all students. This work has focused on how to better train instructors to handle the unique accessibility challenges faced in earth and environmental sciences.When she’s not teaching or doing research, Emily enjoys running, hiking, watching documentaries, and playing board games and computer games.
