144: Vegan for the Booty
*Language may be offensive to some listeners.* Samantha and Kassie are models, travelers and all around bad asses! Samantha has a Masters in Industrial Psychology and is an environmental enthusiast. Kassie writes closed captioned scripts for the deaf and hard of hearing. These two babes are way more than meets the eye!
In this episode, Samantha and Kassie swing by the studio in San Diego, after visiting two of my favorite spots; The Purple Mint and Mission Square Market, as they talk about how they sneak activism between their sexy modeling photos.

140: Natural Delights
Alondra Ruiz is a successful San Diego Real Estate Agent and the co-owner of Natural Delights in East County, San Diego. But, Alondra's life hasn't always been so healthy. When she was a young child, she lived on the streets with her mother and found most of her meals by digging in dumpsters and trashcans around the town.
In this Episode, Alondra shares her crazy story on how her family members literally saved her as a child, and of course, how she made her most recent transition to veganism. In addition to Alondra, her 11 year old nephew, Gael and 17 year old niece, Esmy have become vegan (on their own) after watching some of the same documentaries she watched!

In this episode, Kimberly and I also include a very important, yet usually controversial topic; building bridges between racial and ethnic groups to build a stronger future for us all.
**The term "cis-gender" comes up about half-way through the podcast, then again 10 minutes later. For those unfamiliar with the term, it defines the majority of the population; the people whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex.**

136: Pain Into Purpose
Melanie Langston-Bazzell is one of the strongest people I have ever met. After a traumatic accident on a San Diego freeway, Melanie suffered major injuries to her brain and other parts of her body.
There's no doubt she went through a period of depression, but rather than feeling sorry for herself, she decided to get active for the animals because she knew exactly what it meant to not have a voice. Melanie's story is truly heart-warming and I hope you all experience the same joy hearing it as I did!
