S1E15 - Interview with JUNO & WCMA Nominated Musician Cassius Khan: How Music is Divinity, Overcoming Post-Pandemic Depression, Racism in Canada, and How Sharing our Lunches Can Help Heal the World!

Podcast Summary: This is by far one of my favourite interviews of Season 1 because Cassius Khan is a man who shares his story, his journey, with a deep, meaningful and poetic view of life. And because we get into so many important topics like overcoming depression during the pandemic, ways to reduce post-pandemic burnout, tactics to become more resilient, where inspiration actually comes from, plus reincarnation, racism in Canada, Maslow's Hierarchy of needs, the problems with the Canadian and international music scene and music classification system, and just how sharing our lunches can help reconnect and heal the world!
