Audra creates greeting cards that cut through the bullsh*t and make people laugh their guts out.

Audra Ricketts left her hometown Victoria, B.C. in 1995, making the epic 1 hour and 35 minute ferry journey over to Vancouver to tackle the world.

Like many young people, she didn’t know what to do with her life but landed a job in the thriving film industry washing dishes in a catering truck. Sam Elliot kissed her on the lips.

Interested in art and dance since childhood, she got into art school somehow with the aid of her portfolio: one unfinished painting and an old sketch book.

Audra spent the next few years studying art at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and continued her education studying acting and has since been type cast as a lesbian.

Struggling in the film and art industries, she did what any artist might do: sat in her basement drinking wine, drawing rabbit heads and writing out her cynical, angst filled thoughts.

Thus the birth of RabbitRabbit Greeting Cards!

Lucca and Rebecca are huge fans of Audra’s work, and are thrilled to get her in the hotseat at the studio to probe the inner and outer depths of what makes Audra tick. But there’s no laughing in this episode. None. No fun here. Don’t listen if you want fun.

Tada’s passion is helping social justice communities cultivate allyships founded in the principles of healthy relating: mutual nourishment, emotional self-responsibility, and wholehearted consent.

Their approach is founded on two core understandings:
1. The true face of oppression, from patriarchy to colonialism is energetic dis-ease that affects our embodied self-concept, which in turn express itself as a systemic issue. True healing of social trauma requires us to work on the level of the body. And, 2. Oppressive dynamics such as sexism and racism cause unnecessary suffering and violence by acting as amplifiers for repressed emotions from childhood and ancestral trauma.

Tada believes this is why truly transformative social justice work must be based in nurturance. Lucca and Rebecca explore what this looks like in their new course “Authentic Allyship Coaching”, and why Tada calls his body of work “The Selfish Activist.”

Events this summer have been tremendously discouraging for many of the human race. There is uglyness, hatred, and violence revealing itself in ways we as a society are appalled by. Times feel dark.

In this episode, Lucca and Rebecca discuss how to apply the principle of Love in this war against the darkness. How can we escape despair? How do we find the kernal of good in something that appears evil? How do we expand upon what we want, and not give oxygen to what we do not want within our society? We wrestle with the tough stuff.
