Re-Nuble Featured On The Sustainable Living Podcast

Re-Nuble Featured On The Sustainable Living Podcast

By Tinia Pina

When I was invited by The Sustainable Podcast Founder, Marianne West, to be interviewed I was ecstatic for reasons different than one would traditionally think as the owner of a small business. Yes, podcast interviews are a great way to increase the visibility of your brand and craft your story in ways that is perhpas more difficult in other communication modalities but I was eager because it allowed me to talk in a familiar space on topics such as consciousness, spirituality, and growing our own food as self-empowerment. Several of these topics may appear as 'fringe' to the the larger public audience but I have always been driven by the interconnection of these three interests because it reveals my personal connection to food. As an individual and through Re-Nuble, I am committed to education and empowering our communities about how to use food to make better lifestyle decisions using methods that promote self-healing and nourishment.

Marianne did a fantastic job dissecting the relationship of each of the above topics and relating it to our global food system. We both hope that you enjoy!
