And that’s a wrap on Season 1!
When I first set out to create my own podcast, I had a few goals in mind: 1) expand my personal knowledge of the planet and people to be a better conduit of service, 2) curate and amplify incredible leaders and experts who are on-the-ground making a difference across sectors, and 3) help our community evolve and transform into our highest selves. Season One definitely surpassed my expectations. Did it hit any of those hopes for you? If so, take to the comments section and let me know what you thought! I’m going to take a little break to breathe, reflect, and consider what the next chapter will be. I welcome your thoughts and suggestions! Just remember... It’s anything but small talk.

Ray Dalio simplifies The Economic Machine
When it comes to the economy at large, it can be a rather daunting concept to wrap your head around, yet it controls and dictates so much of our experience, access, and well-being. There are also current economic risks and implications we need to understand so we can protect our assets (if you know what I mean) during this pandemic. If you don’t know how the economy works, you’ll definitely get worked by the economy. This week, I am thrilled to be partnering with Ray Dalio and his team to bring you his viral and iconic beginner’s breakdown of our economic structure. It’s clear, concise and some might say slightly unconventional. Use it to get your head in the game and take charge of your financial future.   Follow and support Ray Dalio and Learn More: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Death Row Survivor Damien Echols simplifies ceremonial Magick and finding enlightenment in solitary confinement
Author Damien Echols, one of the West Memphis Three, is a man most famous for his darkest days. After being wrongly convicted as a teenager of murdering three boys, he spent 18 years on Death Row, including 10 in solitary confinement. Amidst unfathomable strife, loss, and fear, Damien discovered ceremonial Magick with a "k" (spoiler: it's not sleight of hand or evil spells) and this punctilious practice saved his life. We explore and compare Magick's ancient history with modern eastern and western traditions, controversial symbolism, concepts of reality, and practices we can use to access new states of being. Let's lift the veil on the often misunderstood ideologies of Magick... with a "k", that is.

PAUSE, PLEASE! Past Simplexity Guests Help Us Reflect and Push Forward
This week, we are pressing pause to reflect and learn how three of Simplexity’s previous guests are taking strong, heart-centered approaches to educate, process, and activate people during this time. Gloria Atanmo, CEO and travel blogger, is crafting unifying resources with a compassionate “take what you need” approach. Sexologist Shan Boodram has been candid about her exploration of colorism as a mixed-race woman, along with sharing how sex, love, and relationships play into conversations of race and activism. Singer-songwriter India Carney is using her superpower of music and art to find gratitude, dignity, and determination in a period that could easily lead to hopelessness. We revisit moments from earlier interviews to see how they tie in to today’s climate, and of course, it wouldn’t be complete without India’s breathtaking musical performance.
