Today’s podcast is about roots. Nobody exists in a vacuum on this planet. In some shape or form we all have long-standing roots that ground us. Today we learn and ask: What are the roots that make us who we are and sustain us?

Our first guest this week is Matthew Cipriani, founder and senior researcher at Refmen research, who helps individuals trace back family lineages and genealogical histories.

We’ll also chat with Claudia Joseph, founder and director of New York Permaculture Exchange, who helps communities in Brooklyn find their roots in healthy, sustainable produce.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Mark Hamilton, a social scientist in the department of Communications at the University of Connecticut who was part of a research that revealed some potential links with birth months and the likelihood of becoming a celebrity.

Check Lisa Autz & Zach Schepis take this week’s question to the streets!

Also check out our interview with Claudia Joseph, founder and director of New York Permaculture Exchange.
