This could have been several episodes, as we discuss some HUGE topics from health care to power structures to privilege to patriarchy to emotional eating to cancer and more. Ali’s incredibly passionate and knowledgeable. She works in the health and wellness industry to disrupt systems that aren’t working and help people advocate for their own healing.
In our conversation we get intense, but also with humor and hope. Ali jokes, “Hi I’m Ali. I want to burn down the patriarchy. What do you do?” We decided we need to host our own style of cocktail party, where we talk about real things that matter to us and the world. It’s that kind of show today… enjoy and please share it with your people.
