NL SADD Podcast Episode 13 - Natural Highs

Podcast Cover

I'm posting this a day early because I might not be available early Sunday morning.

We had Matt Bellace on this week to talk about natural highs. We delve into what natural highs are, how they differ from drug-induced highs, and why they are such a healthy part of everyday life! Also, we talk about the natural highs people can get from being in an organization like SADD and why the experiences in SADD can be so powerful to people.

NL SADD Podcast Episode 9 - The History of NL SADD

Podcast Cover

We're posting this a day early. If I was really suave, I'd say that this is to make up for the day late the last podcast was, but, in reality, I'll be gone for the next few days and want to get as many people as possible to listen to this episode!

A more low-key podcast this week; Lee Erickson and Cory Erickson discuss the beginnings of SADD in North Dakota and the people and events involved with the evolution into Northern Lights SADD. Also, we talk a bit about what we hope the future holds. Please take a listen as it's a pretty rich, interesting history, and there's no way I could possibly serve justice to the content with a summary on here.

NL SADD Podcast Episode 8 - An August NLAB Update

Podcast Cover

This past weekend, the NLAB met up in Carrington, ND, to discuss the new Reality Check program and some information on our new Transitions curriculum. We also did a ton of filming there, and we made a podcast (albeit a short one) of what all happened out there, including a sneak peak at some new conferences and materials that'll be available this Fall!

Needless to say we had a lot of work to do at the meeting, so I hope you forgive this podcast for being late!

Cara Filler and Christy Whitman joined us this week for the Northern Lights SADD Podcast. The discussion touched a bit on the issue of suicide and suicide prevention before changing over to our main topic: goal setting and achieving goals for students (and, well, their advice applies to everyone!). Then, we get off track and talk about how students learn, but it's a fun listen for sure.

You can find out more about Cara Filler at www.carafiller.com, and you can find out more about Christy Whitman at www.christywhitman.com. Thanks to both of them for being on this week.
