#10: ‘There Was Erykah Badu Playing’, with guest Lauren Ash

This week, our special guest is Lauren Ash, creative director of Black Girl in Om. We discuss how she created a community of spiritual goddesses using yoga, defending ourselves from technology anxiety, and finding inner peace through close friendships and self-care. In the after show, we discuss new music from Stephen Bruner aka Thundercat, the writings of Laura Helen Winn, and a mouth-watering quinoa breakfast dish.
