  • It's Been A Blast

    02/07/2020 Duración: 05min

    This week, it's time to say goodbye. After much thought and soul searching, we have decided to no longer continue on with the show. It's been 4 years, yep we started in May 2016, and one heck of a ride! We honestly can't believe it's been that long. But if the last few years have taught us anything, it's that we have stretched ourselves way too thin and running ourselves into the ground is something we simply cannot do. We have so many new ventures in the pipeline that we're excited to bring you and we need to make room in our schedules for those. So it's not something to be sad about, it's simply a pivot to new directions. We're sure we'll interview great people along the way in the future and when we do we may just release a new episode here and there, who knows, we'll never say never! Regardless, there are over 180 episodes to revisit and sink your teeth into either via iTunes, Stitcher or listen on our website, including this final episode 183. Don't forget that each episode has its own show notes on

  • The Year That Was

    In this week’s episode of The Whole Circle Podcast we take a look back and reminisce on the year that was. We thought we would take a look back on the year that was.  We have had a pretty full-on year this year especially with our mum battling cancer and it has given us a perspective we perhaps may not have had before. There was a time where we have wished away certain things in our lives such as wishing the kids were older so we could shower in peace or not have to wipe backsides anymore or drive the kids here, there and everywhere.  But you know what?  That’s the juicy stuff!  Now that Tracey has older daughters who don’t need her for those things anymore, she realises how precious those years were.  So, don’t ever take that stuff for granted because before you know it, it’s all gone.

    In this week’s episode of The Whole Circle Podcast we talk all about our recent incredible trip to Guatemala. We’re back! We’ve arrived home safe and sound and our minds are still spinning from the amazing trip we just got to experience. Since our return, we have had lots of questions from people wanting us to articulate how the trip made us feel.  To be honest, it really is incredibly hard to articulate or to articulate it in a way that truly does it justice. It was definitely life-changing that’s for sure. It was also very humbling.  The communities we went to were living in extreme poverty.  We have witnessed this before given we spent some of our childhood living in Papua New Guinea, so we were not as shocked by it as we perhaps should have been or as shocked as some of our travel mates were, but the thing that struck us the most was that the people in these communities were extremely happy. They don’t know any different.  Living this way is their version of normal.  They have nothing to compare it to, so

    In this week’s episode of The Whole Circle Podcast we talk about all things healthy living with Pete Evans.

We’re all entitled to our opinions, but we believe he does do a lot of good in the world, especially when it comes to clean, wholefood, additive and preservative-free living. We believe it’s important to hear all the information so that we can then make our own informed choices. Topics Covered: How did Pete come to live this very clean lifestyle?

Needless to say, she got the position and she has gone onto overhaul the whole school canteen to be fully additive-free! Seriously… how AWESOME is she?! Tthe canteen is not just additive-free, they also use organic or chemical free produce wherever possible which they source from a farm 15 minutes away from the school as well as they use their own school garden for produce or source locally where they can.
