Episode 001 Summary: Lauren Whiteman discusses her personal story battling chronic illnesses, how she discovered that she could heal without drugs or doctors, healing dogs naturally in spite of the vet’s belief that the dogs would die, the species appropriate diet and life science, terrain model vs germ theory, books to check out, and tips on transitioning to a more healthy lifestyle. She is one of the moderators of the growing facebook group Terrain Model Refutes Germ Theory, and remains active teaching the Terrain Model, while using principles of species appropriate diets to rehabilitate sick dogs and cats.

Like pretty much every music festival in the world after March this year, HONK! Fest was cancelled due to the social shutdown following the COVID-19 fiasco. But this did not prevent the organizers of HONK! from bringing together brass bands from all around the world for a week-long online festival.
I helped produce and curate content from the New Orleans HONK! Fest community including The Young Fellaz Brass Band, the Red Flame Hunters and Original Big 7 Social Club, and New Creations Brass Band. I shot and edited mini-documentaries and performances with the Red Flame Hunters, Big 7, and Young Fellaz Brass Band, and hosted a live panel discussion on New Orleans Culture with members of the New Orleans brass band community.
Enjoy the videos above and be sure to check out the rest of the HONK! United festival here: https://www.youtube.com/user/honkfestival/videos
The Young Fellaz Brass Band prepare to release their new untitled album in early 2021. Featuring 12 original songs and totaling 70 minutes in length, this album has been in production since the summer of 2019, and will be the strongest Young Fellaz work to date. The album is entirely self-produced at saxophonist Seth Bailin's home studio in the 9th ward of New Orleans.
