Arts & Culture Podcasts

Kayla and Emma created Mind Edibles to have open-minded conversations about thought provoking concepts. Think "food for thought" Gen Z style. During a recent camping trip, a tipsy Kayla brought up the idea of creating a podcast. As frequent podcast listeners, it sounded most appropriate to create one of their own! Emma, being a Virgo, started brainstorming topic ideas the very same day. ​ Today, they have set a goal to shed light on taboo, controversial, and misrepresented issues within society while having a little fun during the process. Regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual preference, religion, or class, everyone is welcome and valid. Meet the hosts: Kayla Callaghan is a 22-year-old student residing on the beautiful west coast of B.C. As a student aspiring to work within community development and youth work, she spends most of her time focused on her studies and the remainder enjoying her favourite parts of life: sunshine, puppies, and wine of course! With an open heart and an open mind, she is more than excited to grow, learn, and express herself through thoughtful conversation alongside good company. Emma Alves is an independent artist who writes, records and produces her own music. Think of Sabrina Claudio and Olivia O'Brien with sultry, dream-pop vocals. She is a strong supporter of women, LGBTQ+ members, and Black and Brown singers and producers in an otherwise male-dominated industry. Emma aims to incorporate meaningful topics into her art, and is always finding new ways to express her feelings and beliefs while navigating in today's society.
