And also about actual flavor. He made a salt! It’s a spicy salt. We’ll talk about the crazy old days and where Jose is headed next. http://thinkjose.com/

We’ll also talk with the founder of Quw’utsun’ Made, a holistic apothecary brand. A proud daughter of the Quw'utsun'/Cowichan Tribe, Arianna Lauren uses plant extracts native to the northwest to create a vegan and paraben-free body-care line. We’ll talk about her upbringing in Vancouver, British Columbia (Unceded Coast Salish Territory), and her work to preserve the traditional knowledge of the Coast Salish Nation in order to pass it on to future generations. https://www.quwutsunmade.com/
