Arts & Culture Podcasts

The Delicious Truth with Gloria Cotton, is a podcast series that presents the whole truth about the issues that impact our daily lives. We believe that what makes something 'delicious' is a certain fullness. Delicious is rich, intimate and powerful. During this podcast, we’ll cover all three delicious layers of the truth. The Absolute, Empirical Truth The objective, unbiased precise evidence, the facts, stats and data. The Personal, Experiential Truth The experiences people have. Answers to questions like, “How does this show up in peoples’ lives for real?” and “What are some of the things that people don’t know they don’t know and that keep them in a conscious or unconscious darkness or denial about what’s true for others even when it’s not true for them”. The Consequential, Impactful Truth The difference this makes in people's lives. Things that answer the questions, “So what?” “Why should anyone care?” and “How does this impact others, not just the target group?” And finally, we get to NOW WHAT? During this podcast you will hear about resources, solutions, tools and what you can do to make things better, to make a positive difference in your life and the lives of others.

Season 3 - Episode 12: A Time to Reflect

10/19/2021
As season 3 comes to an end, we unwind and reflect on what has been a season that promotes self-care. From topics such as being your own best ally, to showing people who you are, to talking about putting yourself first, each episode was constructed as a building block in the complexity of what self-care is. This season has been a roller coaster of emotions. We had light hearted moments in episodes in which we shared laughs, but we have also had tough but necessary conversations such as...

10/8/2021
Learning to say no is an important skill to possess, not only will it save you from headaches and emotional stress in the long run, it is an important tool used to set your personal boundaries and enables others to have a clear understanding of what they can expect from you. However, we must also learn to say no in a gracious or polite manner that will not hinder our relationships with others.

Join us in this week’s episode as we speak on a very heavy topic, in which we discuss the code of silence. What needs to change and how we can become allies to those whom have been victims of any form sexual assault. The code of silence is something that has gone on for way too long and needs to be broken. Many times, victims have stayed silent about the assault they have gone through because of fear tactics. What is sad, is that sometimes these tactics are applied by family members rather...

Season 3 - Episode 9: Show them who you are! Stand in our own power!

9/24/2021
With people always trying to tell us who we are or who we should be, it becomes hard at times to remember who we are. However, it is important not only knowing who you are, but standing in your own power. No one must believe in yourself more than you, no one should be invested in yourself more than you. Believe in who you are and what you are capable of, and stray away from the disease of “yeah-but-atitus”. The crippling disease that puts self doubt in your mind like “Yeah I wanted to try...

Season 3 - Episode 8: Self-Allyship, Decluttering Negativity From Your Life.

9/17/2021
Decluttering can bring a ton of health benefits to our lives. For example it can reduce stress and anxiety levels, reduce dust, mold, and mildew among other things that are toxic to our health. Just like decluttering our homes, decluttering our life and mind can be just as beneficial for us. We need to declutter the people, thoughts or things that bring negativity to our life. These can be things that brought us joy at one point or another, but are now hindering us from having a peace of...

Season 3 - Episode 7: Selfcare, Enhancing Your Well-being

9/10/2021
Join us on this week’s episode as we discuss self-care from a physical, emotional,mental and spiritual standpoint, why it is important and what are some ways we can practice self-care. Before we can begin to talk about self-care, we need to stop and ask ourselves what is self-care? Self-care is a process of purposeful engagement in strategies that promote healthy functioning and promotes well-being. With that said, there are different parts of self-care that we have to pay attention to....

Season 3 - Episode 6: Friendship, Learning How to Be Your Own Best Friend and Ally

9/1/2021
Despite the negative sentiment about putting yourself first, it is the best thing you can do for yourself and those you love. Befriend yourself, become your best ally. Putting yourself first means loving yourself, taking care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. By being able to take care of yourself first, you are then able to care for others. We become more productive and overall happier and better people. Think about it like this, you have two cars, one has...

Season 3 - Episode 5: Messages, The Actions that Shape Us

8/24/2021
There are messages all around us, whether they are verbal or nonverbal. These messages help shape and mold us into who we are. As children, hopefully, our parents gave us the message of unconditional love, and appreciation, which in return would shape us to be compassionate, caring, kind, and loving. As adults, we continue to receive messages, however, it is important to give self messages. Messages that tell us we are more than enough, that we are more than capable, that we are more than...

Season 3 - Episode 4: Gratitude, The Quality of Being Thankful

8/17/2021
With everything going on in the world, being grateful is something that many people forget to be. However, sometimes we have to look even in bad situations that we may be going through, in order to find the positive in which you are grateful for. We can be grateful for an opportunity that we may have, for our mental and emotional health, for having a roof over our head. However we can also be grateful for something we did for others. For example grateful that we had food to be able to...

Season 3 - Episode 3: The Wisdom of Our Ancestors and the Intended Gifts of Family

8/10/2021
Whether we notice it or not, our ancestors play a vital role in our identity. They have laid the foundation for who we are. They provide us with the wisdom to help us navigate through life and our problems. They also provide us with the confidence created by the safety net from showing us unconditional love. Sometimes it takes us longer to accept their wisdom or to acknowledge it. This is because our innocence of ignorance as youth makes us think that we know it all, but the reality is, if...

Season 3 - Episode 2: Privilege, Leveraging Your Advantages for The Highest Good

8/3/2021
The word privilege has become such a negative word in today's society. However, privilege itself isn't bad, what makes privilege bad is what you decide to do with it. You can be born into having the privilege of being financially stable or wealthy, however if you use such privilege to help those around you, then you are using your privilege as a tool to better the world, you are using it to give individuals the opportunity to obtain their own privilege that they might have been denied if you...

Season 3 - Episode 1: I AM__. The gift of acknowledgment

5/25/2021
"If I know who I AM, then they can't tell me who I am." Self-acknowledgement is the biggest gift you can give yourself, it is a tool of self-empowerment that no one can take from you. We often get so consumed by the fast pace of life that we live in, that we begin to forget WHO WE ARE because we are so wrapped up in WHAT WE DO. We must take time out of our day to acknowledge ourselves, validate ourselves and most importantly love ourselves. As children, we are conditioned to start thinking...

Still We Rise - The Unacknowledged Truth

4/30/2021
The News is important. It tells us trivial things like, the prize winning hog at the state fair and things of monumental importance, like all things COVID-19. But for some of us, the news can be a trigger. The reality is that for minorities, oppressed and marginalized groups of people day-to-day life can be triggering. The news just makes us ALL aware of some of the things that are happening, whether they directly or indirectly impact us. The reactions to community violence, murder by...

Hindsight is 2020 - Season Two Has Come to An End

12/28/2020
2020 has been a year like no other year in the history of our nation. It brought with its pandemics a huge weight upon our bodies, hearts, minds, and spirits. Is it any wonder that people are dying in their spirits even if they aren't dying in their bodies? We see this clearly in the rising evidence of mental instability in ourselves and others. As we wrap up this season I do hope that despite how hard 2020 has been for us all, that you felt empowered by the guest featured on each and every...

Season 2 - Episode 11: We need to Change. Now what does that mean?

12/9/2020
My favorite artist and poet is no other than THEE MICHAEL JACKSON. When my next guest and I planned this episode, I couldn't help but think of Michael's song Man in the Mirror. There is a TV show called "What would you do?" When something wrong is happening, even when there are many people around, there is rarely an instance where all the onlookers get involved. This is called the Bystander effect. Everyone just assumes that someone else will do it. I'd take that and go a step further....

Season 2 - Episode 10: Beginning to Examine the Structures of Racism in Corporate America

12/2/2020
Back in June, Harvard Business Review published the following fact. "From 1619 to 1965, this country had laws, policies, and practices — from slavery to Jim Crow to redlining — that legally separated white and Black people in an attempt to maintain a white supremacist society. The inhumanity required for people to function in such a society — to dehumanize others and be dehumanized — has left its mark on our nation and, by extension, our organizations in innumerable ways." - Ben Hecht A few...

Season 2 - Episode 9: The Relationship Between Bias and Systemic Racism

11/25/2020
When the “New North America” was established, it was clear that black people were not human or equal to white people, even after the civil rights movement. Consequently the architects of society had a non-inclusive cultural standard to adhere to when developing our society. This is where bias comes in. When power and bais marry, they produce systemic racism. All of the systems of our society were built by white men. Our criminal justice system, employment system, housing system, health care...

Season 2 - Episode 8: Honoring All of Our Parts

11/18/2020
Have you ever said or thought that you could be great if only a certain part of you would let you? Maybe a phrase like, “I don’t know why I keep letting this partner back in my life? I’m never going to find love.” or “I could be healthy, but I can’t seem to stop eating the wrong things.” Usually these thoughts are pretty normal and can begin a dialogue about restoring one's power and sense of self. But when we are addressing larger dysfunctions like eating disorders, addiction, phobias etc.....

Season 2 - Episode 7: Searching for AND in a World of OR

11/11/2020
Humans seem to be obsessed with labels. The idea that you look at a certain pronoun, assign it a proper label which comes with a certain definition. With these labels and definitions we expect that these pronouns would mostly adhere to their respective labels. It’s either this OR that. Rarely do we accept pronouns that are this label and AND something else. Women are this, men are that. Cats are like this, dogs are like that. Americans are this, Africans are that. Christians are this,...

Season 2 - Episode 6: One Woman's Journey to Becoming a Recovering Racist

11/4/2020
Racism is defined as a prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized. By that definition, anyone, even those in the majority can suffer from racism. That is not the case. Racism is only effective because of its power to impact the lives of people on a systemic level. People of color aren’t upset about the aforementioned definition, it’s the...
