Make That Anxiety Work For You, with Rebekah Peppler

Season 2, Ep. 48

Rebekah Peppler is a James Beard Award-nominated cookbook author (of "Apéritif: Cocktail Hour the French Way), food stylist, recipe tester and all around badass. She splits her time between Paris, LA and NYC and is currently working on a second cookbook, "À Table." She also wrote an article for the New York Times about the Aperol Spritz that blew up the internet, called "The Aperol Spritz Is Not a Good Drink."


We talk in her Paris apartment about the fantastical and clichéd things that really do happen in Paris, we chat about how food (and drinks) are personal, how the adage "fake it 'til you make it" is sometimes the best way to go, and how we both handle anxiety when it comes to tackling a big project -- like writing a book!, which is something we're both in the midst of right now.


Rebekah is awesome; I loved having a microphone on this conversation, which was, honestly, like one we'd have over a glass of wine or during apéritif.

Why The World Needs Conflict Transformation, with Kirby Broadnax

Season 3, Ep. 59
Kirby Broadnax has years of experience as a mediator, conflict coach, community-builder and facilitator. She has her Masters degree in Conflict Transformation -- which is a field of study similar to Conflict Resolution, but is a bit more all-encompassing and holistic in solving the issues at hand.Kirby is one of my dearest friends, we go way back, and over the years she has opened my eyes on many occasions by sharing her experiences as a black woman in America. It sounds trite to say, but she truly is wise beyond her years. She’s had an enormous impact on my life.The first part of this conversation focuses on the scope of Conflict Transformation and how she was drawn to that field of study and work. We discuss appreciative inquiry and creative ways to address conflict, AND generating excitement around things that are possible. The second part of the conversation is a discussion more specifically around this moment we’re living in, in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death and how we can make a difference on an individual level, as well as the difference between intention and impact.You can follow Kirby on Instagram @kevab325.RESOURCES (thanks to Kirby!):Tips for how to have conversations about racism, and also gives good guidelines for difficult conversations in general:https://www.dosomething.org/us/articles/our-role-as-non-black-people-of-color-in-disrupting-racismA+F George Floyd Uprisings Collaborative Resources List: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PCei7GtQQnnnID9D5AguUTTwj_VAvNtgqXlPzSngIZg/edit?usp=sharingDonations (monetary, and supplies): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1MBb0zD1Q35pugvhbmj-Ao8LKd9KsZe0QRqAEWBiMMKs/edit?usp=sharingBooks:Emergent Strategy - Adrienne Maree BrownI’ve Got the Light of Freedom - Charles PayneHope & Healing in Urban Education - Shawn GinwrightLittle Book of Race & Restorative Justice - Fania DavisAre Prisons Obsolete? - Angela DavisSacred Instructions: Indigenous Wisdom for Living Spirit-based change -- Sherri MitchellBeyond Survival: Stories and Strategies from the Transformative Justice Movement -- edited by Ejeris Dixon and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna SamarasinhaTo follow this podcast on Instagram: @keepitquirkypodcast, and to follow the host Katie Quinn: @qkatie.Subscribe to Katie’s monthly email newsletter: http://eepurl.com/dNtAx2Thanks to musician @bqfunk for the podcast theme song!
