How have the wellness and beauty industries thrived off of a dominant culture of non-acceptance? And what might be the healing potentials that lie in plant medicines—when their sacred origins and rituals are honored and respected?

In this episode, we welcome Fariha Róisín. As a multidisciplinary artist who is a Muslim queer Bangladeshi, she is interested in the margins, in liminality, otherness, and the mercurial nature of being.

Róisín is the author of the poetry collection How To Cure A Ghost, as well as the novel Like A Bird. Her upcoming work is a book of non-fiction entitled, Who Is Wellness For? and her second book of poetry is entitled Survival Takes a Wild Imagination.

The song featured in this episode is Little Girl by Lil Idli.
