Everyday Rockstar (0:00:00) Lisa and Richie talk to this week’s featured Everyday Rockstar. You can nominate yourself or someone you know by sending us an email to email@example.com. Why You Should Adopt a Dog (0:06:24) Did you know it’s national adopt a shelter dog month? Who knew! Well if you were looking for a good excuse to get a new puppy, this is it! While there are many great places to adopt a dog from, a shelter is a great option to help give a good home to dogs who really need it. Today we welcome Claudia Roll, the Vice President of Operations at Humane Rescue Alliance, on the show today to tell us more about the importance of adopting shelter dogs and what else we can do to help. Skincare During Winter (0:22:45) Winters are rough for so many reasons. It’s harder to get out of your warm bed, days are short, and your skin dries up—or at least mine always seems to! Winter can be tough on our skin—especially the most sensitive parts like our hands and lips. When we’re feeling dry, we just aren’t feeling our best. So how can we prep for these cold days—other than buying lotion and Vaseline in bulk? Here to share her advice with us is dermatologist Debra Jaliman. How to Discipline Your Kids (0:35:21) Disciplining our kids is hard to do—we love them and so we don’t want to hurt their feelings. On the other hand, it’s because we love them that we have to discipline them when they’ve done wrong. However, it can be hard to know when you’ve crossed the line from merely steering them back onto the right path and hurting their self-esteem. It’s a difficult balance as a parent but it’s a crucial one to maintain. Here to talk to us about maintain this balance and how to practice “soft criticism”, is an author, clinical psychologist, and mom of four, Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore. Virtual Reality (1:15:11) Virtual reality games have become more and more popular with kids and adults over the last few years. They’ve also been the subject of many sci-fi novels and movies like Ready Player One or even Jumanji. While many praise the Virtual Reality experience, others fear the idea of it replacing the real world. So, we wanted to get down to the bottom of Virtual reality and find out what’s good about it and what might be dangerous. Here with us today is Robert Scoble, tech evangelist, to help us better understand what virtual reality is and its future. Day of the Dead Recipes (1:29:04) You know the Disney Pixar movie Coco? It’s a film about a young boy’s dream to become a musician despite his family’s generations-old ban on music. His journey to live his dream takes him to the land of the dead where he uncovers his family history. For some people, this movie is the full extent of their exposure to the beautiful Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead, in which families honor their ancestors. They honor their memories and their lives, and they do it in various ways, including by cooking traditional food. Well today, we wanted to learn more about the holiday and how we can also celebrate it by making traditional Day of the Dead recipes. To help us do that is highly-acclaimed food blogger and founder of Mexico in My Kitchen, Mely Martínez. Show More...
