LIVE WITH BRIEN SHAMP
Brien Shamp is one of the Bay Area's top fitness and nutrition coaches. He invited me to one of his weekly coaching calls to discuss the health benefits of cacao and natural chocolate. I also suggest fun ways to integrate chocolate into your daily meals and snacks, and talk about how I'm working with chocolate to inspire children (and parents) everywhere to think systemically and reconnect with the origins of the foods we eat and the ecosystems those foods come from.

THE GEORGE WILDER JR. SHOW
The George Wilder Jr. Show "makes the world a better place one show at a time" and discusses everything from politics to literature. Show host George Wilder and I chat about my book The Jaguar and the Cacao Tree, my love for fantasy, the power of writing, and our Cacao Stories initiative. George also makes me read an excerpt from the novel. :) We start with me at 22:55 but do listen to the very beginning—I just love George's intro music!

WE CHOOSE RESPECT PODCAST

THE ROAD TO ENLIGHTENMENT
Part of the Blog Talk Radio ecosystem, The Road to Enlightenment helps people navigate their own paths and become the very best version of themselves they can be.
