How do we, as parents, instil in our kids the things that are the most important to us? And what about the things that we don't necessarily mean to pass on as values or ways of being, but do? Now those are the ones we get to feel really guilty about, right? Find out more here:

There are so many barriers that stop us from trying something new: the fear of what other people will think or the idea that after a certain age there is no point (just to name a couple).

This is something we can all benefit from! Listen now! Find out more here:

The sex trafficking industry is larger than the global cocaine market. If you put together the yearly revenue of McDonald’s, Netflix, Wall Disney, and Best Buy, you get about the same value* Most of us can't imagine it.

Imagine if your child found themselves caught by strangers and forced to have sex with other strangers with no way of ever escaping. You can help right now by listening to this episode and donating to the charity, Destiny Rescue, who go into those bars and brothels and rescue the children trapped there. Since 2011, they've rescued 10,361 individuals, taken them to safe places, given them medical care, counselling,  trained or educated the ones who wanted it, and set them up in careers or businesses.     Find out more here:     Donate to Destiny Rescue here:  *
We treat menopause as if there's something wrong and when men think that something's wrong, they want to fix it. The problem is, they don't know what it is that needs fixing when menopause hits because, on the whole, neither do the women.

Dr Ron Eaker is an obstetrician and gynaecologist who has specialised in menopause for the last thirty-three years, and today, he shares his wisdom and knowledge in this topic. Listen now and get the men in your life to listen, too!  Find out more here:
