We Are Celine
Jun 21 2024
We Are Celine
Jann and Sarah are eager to hear about Caitlin's experience at the premiere for 'I Am: Celine Dion.' The new documentary features the Canadian icon as she shares her health struggles in dedication to her fans. The conversation then shifts to Justin Timberlake's recent DUI arrest and the controversy surrounding his behaviour. This week’s episode is brought to you by the home and auto insurance brand Canadians trust most, Intact Insurance. Guest Catherine Legge joins for half the show; an award-winning filmmaker and journalist who previews her new film and podcast, 'The Murder That Never Happened.' The podcast begins with a wrongful conviction case in Louisiana and explores the flaws in the justice system. Legge wants to explore the prevalence of wrongful convictions in the 90s, before the introduction of DNA evidence. She highlights how many other cases there are in both Canada and the USA. More about the film & podcast: From the creator of THE UNSOLVED MURDER OF BEVERLY LYNN SMITH and MET WHILE INCARCERATED/FROM PRISON WITH LOVE, this psychological thriller documentary unfolds as a courtroom drama beginning in 1993. Against the backdrop of peak crime in America, a death triggers a Louisiana town into what’s called a moral panic. Witness by witness, a community turns a man into a monster, framing him for a horrific crime and sentencing him to death. In a twist that will play out in the headlines this fall (2024) the witnesses reappear in court 30 years later. Now, their testimony exposes what’s been covered up for decades - the murder never happened.   But one still might. After decades on death row, this wronged man will expose the worst of the justice system, while fighting for his freedom. And it’s an inconvenient time to be innocent as Louisiana resumes executions after a near 20 year blink on an eye-for-an-eye. The world is watching. Many powerful people don’t want the truth to come out. Will the horror story or the evidence prevail this time?  This documentary goes beyond the WHAT to the WHY linking this outrageous wrongful conviction to a dozen others through a lens of moral panic including the CENTRAL PARK 5 and WEST MEMPHIS 3 cases. The 90's archive meticulously frames the fear; news media, the state (prosecutors and police), and political leaders who propped up an industry of fraudulent forensics that justice gatekeepers fed to juries ravenous for definitive proof. This mob justice is still playing out across death rows today. It’s time to call a generation raised on true crime to go beyond the hype and take their place as purveyors of justice. There’s still time to do the right thing. For updates, follow along on instagram: @themurderthatneverhappened Listen to the Summer 2024 Playlist curated by Jann, Caitlin & Sarah!

Like the climate crisis, microplastic pollution cannot be: it spans the globe, chokes up rivers and animals, and insidiously infiltrates the human body. As a science journalist and author, I have been reporting on the threat of plastic for almost two decades and believe that now more than ever, we need to reveal the connection between planetary health and human health, which is why I’ve put my own body on the line for the “Plastic People” project. As part of my journey, I will test my own home, my own food, and even my own feces for microplastics. We are very fortunate to also have a world-first for this project, as we meet surgeons and scientists who are probing the human brain to reveal whether microplastics can cross the blood-brain barrier. The results of testing here will be incredibly significant." Jann, Caitlin and Ziya discuss the dangers of microplastics in our bodies and the environment. Ziya shares that microplastics are found everywhere, including in our blood, placenta, and even the human brain. They discuss the impacts to our health such as increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and cancer. Ziya emphasizes the need for individual and collective action to reduce plastic consumption and advocates for joining organizations that are working towards solving the plastics crisis. Ziya and her team are still raising money for the documentary's impact campaign and they plan to release a podcast to delve deeper into the dark secrets and stories of the plastics industry.

In this episode, Jann Arden, Caitlin Green and Sarah Burke speak to Lori Dyan, also known as Tarot Lori, a tarot card reader with 35 years of experience.

A note from Lori on her upcoming book: Rituals are routines infused with loving intention. The empowerment and unburdening they provide is immense and undeniable. Whether you’re releasing something (or someone) with a Full Moon ritual, elevating your morning skincare routine with a ceremony of self-love or celebrating a milestone moment, rituals can enrich—and even transform—your life.  Burn Your Sh*t guides readers to discover what is possible (and the work that needs to be done) with rituals to help them step into their potential and make their own magic. Full Moons are an opportunity to let go of limiting beliefs, negative self-talk or any other bad mojo that’s hanging around. Crystals can promote healing and boost manifesting. Sacred geometry offers ancient wisdom to amplify ambitions. Sleeping on top of intentions can turn your life around.  You can easily customize rituals to meet you where you’re at in any given moment—from fuelling your body to finding your soulmate. With the right rituals, you can face challenges with clarity, connect to your inner wisdom and become the designer of your dreams.  Find out more about Lori Dyan and her book: https://www.tarotlori.com/ Learn more about your ad choices.
