SPECIAL EVENT: Off the Gram LIVE! with Arianna Huffington to Benefit RMH-NY

In April of 2007, Arianna Huffington woke up in a pool of her own blood. She was two years into building the Huffington Post, all while parenting two teenage daughters as a divorced mother… so basically, juggling ALL the things, like so many of us do. She had been burning the candle at both ends, and literally collapsed, breaking her cheekbone and requiring stitches over her eye. She was diagnosed with a severe case of “burnout” and decided this was not the life she wanted to lead. It was then that she realized the necessity of prioritizing wellness and decided to make that message a part of her life’s work.How many of us can relate to this, right?? Especially now.As the pandemic accelerates a mental health crisis that already existed, Arianna joins us tonight to help us identify our own individual signs and stressors. She believes that as a society, we can emerge into a new normal and become much more open about the challenges we’re facing and ways to course-correct.

Finding the Courage to SPEAK UP with Actor, Advocate and CHANGEmaker Michelle Hurd

How does change happen? So many of us know change is required, but don’t quite know the right steps to make it happen. Some make the fatal error of staying quiet in the hopes of not harming anyone: afraid to say or do the wrong thing. Sometimes, we think we are the only person who feels things are wrong, since some things (like sexual harassment and racism) have been grotesquely normalized and accepted as “just a part of life”. Thankfully, with the courage of the amazing humans who spoke up and continue to speak up as part of the “Me Too” movement, and all of the inspiring souls bringing Black Lives Matter to the surface (and capturing horrific moments on camera), we as a society have finally started uncovering - and have just begun to take steps to remedy - a plethora of wrongs that have gone unrecognized for decades and centuries. So… how do we go from WANTING to speak up and righting wrongs to actually enacting CHANGE? Here today, we are SO excited to have award winning actress, advocate, and changemaker, Michelle Hurd, here with us to discuss finding the courage to SPEAK UP and MAKE CHANGE.

Is Being a Vegan Sexy-Cool? with Jacque Reid

What is Veganism?! Is it an expensive diet? A trendy way of life for “earthy, healthy” people? Does being vegan mean I have to give away all of my favorite designer handbags and shoes made of leather?! Can I still be a part-time vegan, or vegan-ISH and get some of the benefits? Why does it seem like there’s SO much dislike for this movement? And there’s so many new studies around plant based /whole food diets yielding higher immune systems, but where do vegans get protein? Can they get enough calcium?Seems there’s still SO many question marks surrounding this topic, but one thing we DO know is that there are SO many health benefits to having a plant based diet. A few MAJOR ones that we hear about: it can significantly reduce heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and certain cancers.So we are thrilled to welcome Jacque Reid (vegan), Emmy award winner, multi-media maven for NBC, and host of the Vegan Sexy Cool podcast & lifestyle brand which links eating vegan, wellness and social justice.She’s giving us the scoop on what caused her to become a full-fledged vegan, why this lifestyle has become sooo popular for some and how to live a healthier, kinder more fulfilling life, while having a whole lot of fun!

Back to School(?!?) with Teacher, Activist, & People Mag's "Sexiest Teacher Alive," Nicholas Ferroni

Going back to school is the topic hot on everyone's minds right now… and whether you're a mom or not, everyone seems to have an opinion. On one hand, we hear that we may be damaging our children (both educationally & emotionally) by restricting their socialization. On the other hand, we hear from experts and teachers across the country who say there is no possible way to return to school safely.We’re joined today by Nicholas Ferroni, a high school history teacher from Union, NJ who has a thing or two to say on the matter… and there’s no one whose opinion we value more. Why? Nicholas has been noted as one of the "100 Making a Difference” and one of the "Most Influential Educators In America;” he was named "Upstander of the Year" by the Human Rights Campaign for his work with LGBTQ youth; he designed a social experiment on the important of gender equality in politics that Whoopi Goldberg called “the best social experiment ever” (no big deal!)... oh and he was named the Sexiest Teacher Alive by People Magazine - CASUAL!!Nicholas is a walking, talking example of that which he preaches… he is a social activist who educates, mentors and inspires students causing them to not only BE inspired & to INSPIRE OTHERS. We’re grateful he’s here today to inspire us, and shed some light on this sticky topic from his view on the front lines of the conversation.

Emily Gellis & The F-Factor Drama: When "Wellness" Goes Wrong

EWhen influencer & entrepreneur Emily Gellis posted a personal opinion about the F-Factor diet program to her 100k+ followers earlier this year, she had no idea the can of worms she’d be opening up… or that she’d ultimately pivot her entire life to that of a crusader. What started as an innocuous social post turned her into a modern day Erin Brokovich… Emily received thousands of messages documenting people’s adverse reactions - both physically & mentally - as a byproduct of the following the diet or consuming the products. So Emily started sharing it all… the good, the bad, and the ugly. The situation snowballed, and when the story landed in the New York Times and then the TODAY show, Emily vowed to see this through to the end for the victims.Emily shares her story with us on today’s episode, along with two other guests: Liz, a former client of the practice who shares a jarring & heartbreaking story; and Lauren Slayton, founder of Foodtrainers() a New York City consultancy dedicated to weight management and sports nutrition. Lauren holds a Masters Degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University, and she helps us dig a little deeper into the question on everyone’s minds: what the hell is going on here??

Eat Clean to... Play Dirty with Sakara Life Founders: Danielle DuBoise and Whitney Tingle

We keep hearing that we should “eat clean”. But, what does that even mean? If we scrub our cookie boxes and chip bags with soap and water before we eat them, is that clean?! And... Why do we even need to “eat clean”? I thought a little dirt was good for the immune system? And, why is organic food so expensive? Sure, sure, we have all seen the models pictured eating their Sakara salads backstage at fashion shows in all the magazines, but do “real people” actually eat that stuff? Can a SALAD be filling?! Can it even taste good if it’s good for you? While team OTG is lucky enough to know first hand that Sakara makes the most delicious AND nutritious food on the planet, we realize the whole world doesn’t… YET.So, we are THRILLED to bring the RADIANT gorgeous mama founders, Whitney Tingle and Danielle DuBoise, on the show to enlighten us all as to how and why they founded their clean eating empire, Sakara Life. Tell it to us straight, ladies: WHY should we all be eating clean, and HOW can we learn to play dirty?!Whitney and Danielle have graciously offered all of our listeners a $50 gift towards your firstSakaraLife Organic Meal Delivery, valid for new customers only, through September 24, 2020.CODE AT CHECKOUT:PN_OFFTHEGRAMLINK:www.sakara.com/dwpartner See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
