Everyday Rockstar (0:00:00) Lisa and Richie talk with this week’s featured Everyday Rockstar. You can nomination yourself or someone you love by emailing thelisashow@byu.edu. Confronting Racism in the Workplace (0:07:29) Whether we’d like to admit it or not, racism can still be found in our society. One of the more difficult places it pops up at is the workplace, where paychecks and job security could be on the line for saying something you shouldn’t. But if we genuinely believe in fairness and justice for all, we have to work harder to make our work environments safer for everyone and call out prejudice when we see it. So, when it comes to being more inclusive, how can we take discussions about racism and turn them into action? Today, we’re joined by Trudy Bourgeois, CEO of Workforce Excellence, here with us to discuss ways we can cut racism out of our workplace. Murder Mystery Party (0:27:35) What do Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan, and John Grisham all have in common? Murder mysteries of course! And if you’ve ever wanted to be included on that list, well now you can be! And while murder mystery parties have been around since the early 20th century, they are now more options than ever for writing and hosting your own murder mystery dinner parties. Here to answer all our murder mystery party questions about writing your own script, proper hosting etiquette, or choosing a dinner party to play is founder and CEO of award-winning Red Herring Games, Jo Smedley. Connecting Through Passion (0:41:53) There are a lot of problems associate with 2020 and no matter who you are we've all been affected by at least this one: loneliness. It's hard to feel separated and isolated from those you love, however feeling lonely isn't a problem unique to 2020. We can often feel that we are on the outside and that we haven’t found our tribe yet. So, what can we do to reach out and build relationships despite distance or quarantines? To help us out we’ve Spencer Smith onto the show. 7 years ago, he became a founding member of the Major League Soccer Discussion Group and through shared passion help built, one of the biggest American soccer loving community on the internet. Emotionally Healthy Kids (1:00:12) Kids are the greatest joys in life, but when those tantrums start—it can be difficult to remember that. Children feel things deeply, but they don’t often have the right tools to express those feelings, which can result in things like temper tantrums or hurt feelings. We want our kids to be able to express themselves. So, what can we do to help give them the tools to do so? Here to share her advice with us is Maureen Healy—a children’s emotional health expert. Skincare Ingredients (1:11:09) The ingredient list on any item can be long, daunting, and confusing. For skincare products, it's even worse. Long names ending in -oxy and -acid and -quinone seem like meaningless gibberish to the untrained eye. And then, even if you do know what one of the ingredients is and what it does, you don’t know how it works with your other skincare products. All in all, it can make creating a skincare routine confusing, daunting, and potentially painful if done wrong. Here to decode the ingredients in skincare and to help us know what to look for and what to avoid is Colette Laxton, CEO and co-founder of the InKey List, a revolutionary skincare brand. You Are What Your Grandparents Ate (1:29:18) If you are what you eat, then what are you right now? Fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden? The whole rainbow of Otter Pops maybe? Our whole lives, we hear about how our eating and exercise choices affect our health and well-being. But, have you ever considered how your choices affect the health of your kids and future grandkids? As it turns out, the results of your bad eating or exercise habits might be passed on to your posterity. Today, we’ve invited Judith Finlayson, author of “You Are What Your Grandparents Ate,” on the show to tell us how our habits and environment affect the health of future generations.
