What is Veganism?! Is it an expensive diet? A trendy way of life for “earthy, healthy” people? Does being vegan mean I have to give away all of my favorite designer handbags and shoes made of leather?! Can I still be a part-time vegan, or vegan-ISH and get some of the benefits? Why does it seem like there’s SO much dislike for this movement? And there’s so many new studies around plant based /whole food diets yielding higher immune...

Going back to school is the topic hot on everyone's minds right now… and whether you're a mom or not, everyone seems to have an opinion. On one hand, we hear that we may be damaging our children (both educationally & emotionally) by restricting their socialization. On the other hand, we hear from experts and teachers across the country who say there is no possible way to return to school safely.

We’re joined today by Nic...

When influencer & entrepreneur Emily Gellis posted a personal opinion about the F-Factor diet program to her 100k+ followers earlier this year, she had no idea the can of worms she’d be opening up… or that she’d ultimately pivot her entire life to that of a crusader. What started as an innocuous social post turned her into a modern day Erin Brokovich… Emily received thousands of messages documenting people’s adverse reactio...

We keep hearing that we should “eat clean”. But, what does that even mean? If we scrub our cookie boxes and chip bags with soap and water before we eat them, is that clean?! And... Why do we even need to “eat clean”? I thought a little dirt was good for the immune system? And, why is organic food so expensive? Sure, sure, we have all seen the models pictured eating their Sakara salads backstage at fashion shows in all the magazines...

In 2018, Switch4Good - a PSA campaign aimed at informing people about the health risks associated with dairy products - launched with a commercial during the closing ceremony for the Olympics. Unbelievably, the ad was yanked from the air before it reached the West Coast following complaints by the dairy industry. Luckily, they fought their way back to become one of the foremost nonprofits advocating for a healthy plant-based diet, ...

What is Telemedicine? Is it only for the very wealthy? Is it even “good enough”?! I mean… Can my doctor really see my hives from my iPhone camera in low light?! Is there even a “real” doctor on the other end of my tele-doc visit?

Fact: In the United States, Black women die from pregnancy-related complications three to four times the rate of white women. This is true no matter how much money they make, how much education they have, or where they live. We should all be furious that Black women are dying from preventable pregnancy-related causes… and WE ARE.

These days, the four of us co-hosts find ourselves hopping on our #TeamOfftheGram group text to yell "SOS!!" with increasing frequency. We are living in such difficult times, and there should be no shame in waving the white flag and admitting overwhelm... so why is it so hard sometimes?

One of the most fascinating byproducts of this crazy time has been the amount of people suddenly pressing “reset” on their entire lives, either by necessity or by happenstance. Maybe you were the family who fled New York City to avoid the virus epicenter, and discovered you have never been happier living in the country. Perhaps you’re the employee being furloughed, and took the time to write that book you’ve had in your head for ye...

When our mothers were young, saying the word “period” or talking about vaginal health in public was strictly taboo. Today, women practically insta-story from the bathroom (we’ve all seen it!), and the conversation around feminine wellness has become much more open. So why hasn’t the consumer category caught up?

In 2016, Lo Bosworth was coming off an amazing stint on the hit reality TV show, The Hills, but found herself suffering a p...

With so much going on in the world, life can feel pretty overwhelming. The emotional turmoil can leave us feeling paralyzed with uncertainty. Truth is, all we can do each day is strive to be our best selves.

Raise your hand if you've been living in your activewear during quarantine... ok, global hand-raise noted! Truth is, lots of us lived in our athleisure looks long before the COVID craziness began.

With single items boasting three digit price tags, we wanted to know: what is the difference between fabrications, which ones are be...

There are two popular “jokes” floating around about couples during COVID-19 shelter-in-place: 1. The next baby boom will be in approximately 9 months, and, 2. The divorce rates are going to SKYROCKET as soon as social distancing ends.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
