In this episode, we discuss considerate acts you can do for your fellow humans, the complications of EZ Pass, and a toddler’s poop-emoji-themed birthday party. Then we talk to Kate Swiggett who works for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service as the Program Coordinator for Preferred Communities about the work she does as well as her passion to bring tough topics to light.

Bio: Kate is in her late 20s and still hasn't figured out how to filter her thoughts. A New England native, she has found another home in Maryland with friends who are basically family, a decent boyfriend who makes her dinner all the time, and the world's greatest dog. She loves aerials, travel, reading, her cameras, tea, Campari, and being under water.

Huge thank you to Baltimore City Councilman Ryan Dorsey (3rd district) for sharing his story with us! We had so much fun hearing about Ryan’s relationship with Baltimore, his background in music (including his time in the band Soul Cannon), why he got into politics, structural racism, and how he’s advocating for his community and city.

If you have considered running for local government but don’t have any experience or don’t know where to start, this interview is a MUST listen.

(Note: this was recorded at the beginning of March 2017)

We had a lot to say so we split this episode in two. In part one, we talk about Lyra, sexual assault awareness, National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), how to be nicer to ourselves, poetry, the power of community, and the amazing Bird Dog Studio. In Part 2 we interview Baltimore City Councilman Ryan Dorsey!
