4 Podcast Tips

Currently, I am listening to 58 different podcasts! A year or 3 ago, that number was 0. I’ve grown to loving podcasts more and more over the years. In 2020, when I had a job in production, I was listening about 8 hours of podcasts a day. I was a little addicted haha! However, over these years I have only shared 4 podcasts with you on this blog so far. I wrote this post where I shared 4 podcasts with you for the first time. I still enjoy those a lot, but it’s time to share more! I have 58 on my list, so I can write a whole lot of posts from here. Today I am sharing 4 more podcasts that I absolutely love!

Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari

It’s time for another must read on this blog. It’s a book I read a long time. When I read it, it took me months to finish it. I found it so interesting and I read some pages multiple times. It’s a book which was very popular when it came out and there’s also a second book and third book. I have not read those (yet!), but I do want to share the first book here: Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari.

The Relationship Between Sustainability and Health

The Paris Agreement of 2016 was different. Not only because countries finally agreed to do something against the climate crisis, but is also had a different perspective. The Paris Agreement doesn’t just focus on climate change and its effects. Sounds crazy? Well, not entirely. Not everybody sees the urgency to do something against the climate crisis immediately and so we need to show the other benefits as well! There are many, but today I am talking about the benefits of a sustainable world for our health.

2 Ingredient DIY All Purpose Cleaner

It’s time for another recipe! It’s been a while. Since I moved out of my parent’s houses and into my own apartment with my boyfriend in Groningen I’ve tried all kinds of DIY recipes. Some things worked out great, others not so much. Today I want to share the first thing I tried to make and has been a huge succes ever since. It’s the first thing you want to make when you’re making cleaning products yourself: all purpose cleaner.

Why overpopulation is not a problem

It’s a dead end. A discussion killer. When I have discussions with people about sustainability I hear it all the time: ‘the are just too many of us on this planet’. It simplifies the problem we face and I think that’s unfair. We give up and say that overpopulation is the problem. The only solution therefore is to do nothing if you ask those people. And so, that argument makes us passive. Today I want to share with you that this argument is not true.

Series about diversity and taboos: Sex Education

This show isn’t exactly about diversity itself, more about subjects that are considered taboo. However, it’s not build to be informative. It has a narrative and in that way it is just like any other series on Netflix. But then again it isn’t alike others at all. This is a series that shows what a series is supposed to look like. The cast is so diverse and so are the characters. The story is diverse and the entire show is just amazing. I’m talking about Sex Education, a series on Netflix.

Understanding Everyday Racism by Philomena Essed

It’s time for me to share something about racism, which is an important part of intersectional feminism. I am truly ashamed that the Black Lives Matter protests have been the first thing to actually trigger me to learn more about racism. Racism is not something new, it’s just that I took action way too late. I’m trying to do better by educating myself, so that I can be better and act upon the racism I see, read or hear. This book I’m sharing today has been the first book (I do not only read, I watch and listen too, but more about that later) I’ve read about racism. It’s called: Everyday Racism by Philomena Essed.
