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.

Episode 105 - Marianne WilliamsonDan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, presidential candidate Marianne Williamson. Marianne's website describes her as follows: "A lot happens in the life of a woman between the ages of 31, when my career began, and 66, which I am now. I have had a meaningful career; I have a wonderful daughter, India, age 28; and I am now at the point where my deepest desire is to take what I've learned and express it in a way that best serves others. Like millions of Americans, I am sickened and saddened to see the state of our country and I believe that I can help.I do not see American politics today as a conduit for a deep and meaningful transformative experience, either for our citizens or for our country. Our government is now little more than a system of legalized bribery, and our traditional political establishment at its best is a container for an obsolete conversation about democracy, and values, and people. It has become an entity unto itself, more and more disconnected from the everyday lives that are led by people throughout the country. As someone whose entire career has been spent listening to people’s pain, I see the inability of our political establishment to register that pain, and respond to it, as perilous and destructive to our democracy. Our deepest political problems are expressed on the level of politics, but they are not rooted there. Our deepest problem is the disengagement of the American heart from the values we purport to hold most dear, and the failure of too many of our citizens to vitally participate in the expression of those values. A disengaged citizenry is to society what a weakened immune system is to the body, and that is the level on which as a country we most need revitalization. What America most needs is a renewal of the spirit of our democracy, in the absence of which the political corruption and human devastation that have become all too common in America will continue to erode our nation. As someone who has had a thirty-five-year career facilitating personal and systems transformation, I believe I have expertise and skill that is most needed at this time."Visit here to learn more Marianne and learn how to donate, volunteer, and see Marianne in-person:https://www.marianne2020.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/williamsonmarianne/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mariannewilliamson/Twitter: https://twitter.com/marwilliamsonYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXAMXGAP0YnBxtc8brSSbjgMarianne's personal website: https://marianne.comNote: Guests create their own bio description for each episode.Note: The Curiosity Hour Podcast doesn't endorse or support any political candidate.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!
