Israel Adesanya | The StyleBender

Finally got to sit down with a good friend and someone who is doing extremely well in the fight world. His fighting abilities and persona is noticed by many, but my aim for this podcast was to go beneath and highlight this mans incredible mind and the way he thinks. We touched on many topics such as, fighting, curiosity, mindfulness, tall poppy syndrome, fame and profound realisations. Hope you enjoy.

Tupuānuku | Veganism

Choosing to only eat plants has had a profound impact on my life and it has changed in the most positive way. I highlight the idea of identifying myself as Tupuānuku as opposed to vegan. Bringing in a more passive and Māori approach to this way of living.  The goal isn't to make everyone follow a Tupuānuku diet but more so to provide an insight to the lifestyle.   Ngā mihi, Raniera

Phat Mahmah | Decolonising Fat Phobia & Weight Stigma

I was humbled by the openness and pure strength that Mahmah (@phatmahmah) revealed throughout this episode. Sharing her truth around the discrimination against fat phobia, fat shaming and weight stigma.  Very insightful and I am certain that after listening to this many will be more mindful around the language we use as well as our view on those with larger bodies.  Thank you Mahmah you beautiful soul <3

Nix has created a strong presence for herself online across the platforms but it all started a few years ago on facebook (Cooked Whanau Korero With Nix).  She has a very very powerful story and I she wasted no time diving into the depths of darkest parts of her story. She has almost been through it all; drug addiction, drug dealing, prostitution and prison to name a few. Her life has now transformed for the better and uses her story, truth and rawness to create content online that is extremely relateable, entertaining, informative and funny. Hope you enjoy fam :)
