Aditi Juneja is the creator and host of the Self Care Sundays podcast. She founded Self Care Sundays while in her last year of law school while leading the Resistance Manual after realizing that she needed to prioritize self care to make her activism sustainable. She wanted to build a radically inclusive space for people to share their stories about how they have learned to thrive with the hopes that it would help her and others do the same. In Season 2, she is excited to be focusing on how to create habits around self care that make them a part of your daily life. Aditi is now the Communicator at Protect Democracy. She was named to the Forbes 30 under 30 list for Law and Policy in 2018.
Cato is an experienced audio engineer. Like so many people in her profession, she could do a lot better at self care. So, as the audio engineer for Self Care Sundays, she’s very excited to see what Aditi has to share with us! She hopes that Self Care Sundays can create a community and support structure for people looking to alleviate some of the negativity in the world. Cato has done extensive work with inner city students as part of Music 4 Peace San Diego, and as a Music Peace Team Member of the International Day of Peace NGO committee at the United Nations. She currently teaches audio at Platt College in San Diego, CA, and as blogger and host for Pro Studio Live. For more information, check out her website:
Producer Jess Talwar’s journey to self care started relatively recently. As a college student based in Chicago, she’s guilty of drinking coffee too much and sleeping too little. Jess became more conscious about self care once 2017 started and has tried to improve her physical, spiritual, and mental well-being to reflect that. For Jess, the most important change she has made on her self care journey has been being more assertive in saying “no.” She looks forward to work on the podcast to learn how self care varies by profession, generation, and culture.
