Guest: ALISON GOLDWYN; and Musical Guest: JARVIS SMITH
Alison is an edutainment producer & climate alchemist, engaging Media & the Creative Arts to help change the worldwide Emotional Climate – a root of the Climate Change Crisis and nearly all our global ills. Alison believes that the gaping hole in our global whole is due, in part, to a disconnect from Soul … and that Civilization’s healthy maturation hinges on rekindling this timeless connection.
During 2020 lockdown she co-produced and presented for the 4 day Source of Wonder online event featuring 80 Presenters & Artists from diverse global sectors on behalf of uplifting a worldwide community with TLC (Tender Loving Care).
Alison is in her 34th year of party planning Synchronistory®; an unprecedented, interstellar, music-propelled “B’earthday Party” for the Planet celebrating every living being—broadcast live worldwide! As the global family is upended with escalating crises and a worldwide Aerospace Industry ventures into Outer Space Exploration, it feels like a birth on earth, the “b’earth contractions” of which are intensifying and accelerating. It’s incumbent upon our survival to shift perceptions about the world around us – and within us. Sync’s dazzling companion ride through Inner Space Exploration opens our eyes; helping a world of 8 billion earthly stars get Spaced Out & Tuned In with a musically thrilling Cosmic show that vivifies As Above So Below.
Additionally, Alison is Founder & Creative Director of a unique global brand which tangibly illuminates our forgotten love story between Nature & Human Nature with conscious jewels for a precious world: J’aimestones® fine art jewellery. She is affiliated with Al Gore / The Climate Reality Project, two time Nobel Nominee Ervin Laszlo / The Club of Budapest & Laszlo Institute for New Paradigm Research, John Bunzl’s global governance platform Simpol (The Simultaneous Policy) … and the Cosmos.
In Jarvis Smith two worlds collide with dynamic effect. On one hand a proud hippie, mystic, self-confessed tree-hugger and radical eco-warrior, Jarvis is also a thought leader, entrepreneur, speaker, signed recording artist and renowned online retail businessman.
His work gracing global publications, he now partners with and is advising brands including Natwest, HSBC, Deloitte, Citrix, the Parliament Trust, Octopus Energy, Yeo Valley and Weleda.
It was in the middle of 14 years’ Shamanic training that Jarvis’ true awakening happened, during the filming of 2007 Channel 4 reality TV show ‘Dumped’. Shot on location on a Croydon landfill, the experience opened Jarvis’ eyes to the vast devastation human lifestyle waste was having on the planet. It was a realization that was to lead to a lifetime’s work protecting the Earth.
His first magazine GREEN was published with National Geographic from 2008, which then moved to The Guardian in 2010, evolving into the My Green Pod magazine from 2013. Co-produced with wife Katie Hill, it is now the world’s biggest ethical lifestyle magazine. Jarvis launched the P.E.A. (People Environment Achievement) Awards which, in its 11th year, is the UK’s leading sustainability awards and honours individuals and teams for their contribution towards sustainability.
Spring of 2021 sees Katie and Jarvis collaborate with Jo Wood for the My Green Podcast, interviewing celebrities like Fearne Cotton about their ethical endeavours. Providing shoppers with a healthy, affordable retail space that is good for them, their children, their families and ultimately, the planet, Jarvis and Katie’s online eco-conscious store www.mygreenpod.com leads the field in ethical shopping. In October 2021, Jarvis’s TEDX Glasgow talk,
Possibility Consciousness – where do we start with runaway Climate, encouraged people to stop and re-evaluate their consumer lifestyles and the negative knock-on effect on the planet. In the next decade Jarvis’ intent is to provide an ethical alternative to Amazon, with real purpose and proper values. As his message and impact spreads, so the My Green Pod project continues to grow in strength, reputation and effect.
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
