Art and Heritage with Gina Ariko

7/28/2022
On this week’s episode, we welcome Gina Ariko to the podcast! Gina is a Japanese-American artist living in Seattle. While she grew up in the US, she has deep ties to her family roots in Japan. This is especially true for the art that has always played a central role in her life and memories. For her art is a way to communicate when we don’t have the words. For her, the shared love of art with her mom's parents (her jichan and baachan) continues to influence her and the way she views art as a way to connect and honor. Amber sits down with Gina to talk about taking her art full time, and the influence her Japanese heritage and family have had on her art. They also talk about the intersection of language and art, and how being creative or an artist in the age of the internet comes with a need for boundaries and learning how to grow and maintain your craft without sacrificing your well-being or sanity! -- Reading List: Memphis by Tara M.

Joy in Togetherness with Stephanie Harrison

3/10/2022
This week we have @stephaniehson the founder of the @newhappyco a company devoted to spreading the message that being ourselves in service of the greater good is the path to well-being and lasting happiness. If like many of us, you’ve found yourself questioning what it actually means “to be happy,” but always coming up short then this one is for you! Amber and Stephanie talk through old definitions of happiness and what it might mean to live in a good life. Confronting the interlocking power structures that keep us apart, we dig into what it looks like to live for each other as much as we live with each other. -- From the bookshelf: The How of Happiness by Sonja Lyubomirsky Flourish by Martin E.P.
