Ho- ho- ho- hello friends and welcome to a Christmas in July episode of Siren Soapbox. A few months back while brainstorming some fun show ideas, TC told us about a unique game she plays with her friends. Her and her friends go to an antique store and you are only allowed to spend $5 or less on the person AND the item you choose has to be related to the person you picked it for. Then when you exchange gifts you have to try to guess who got you what and why. Did anyone guess correctly? Dive in with us as we discover a little bit more about each other. Challenge of the Week: Tell us about your favorite gift you have received or given and why? Bonus points if you have pictures! #SirenSoapbox #SirenSoapbox #Siren #Soapbox #DiveIn #StayCurious #BeHappy #DiveInStayCuriousBeHappy #ChristmasInJuly #Christmas #giftexchange #friends #discovery #qualityoverquantity #quality #antique #MakeADifference #ChallengeOfTheWeek #Explore #Adventure #Challenge #GetOutOfYourComfortZone #Podbean #Spotify #Pandora #IHeartRadio

The media loves a good scary shark story to incite fear in the public. Sharks have long been feared as a mindless man eating machines. As divers, the sirens know that when you are in the water, you are entering the shark's realm. While swimming with them, it is hard not to be in awe of these magnificent creatures. Even more important is that without sharks, we are ALL in serious trouble. Since it is Shark Week on Discovery Channel this week we are going to soapbox about it! We even have some special guests from Shark Guardian (www.sharkguardian.org) and Ocearch (www.ocearch.org) to help us dispel some of the popular myths around sharks.  Challenge of the MONTH!- Take the edx.org free class on sharks and Shark Guardian’s class and then join us on Facebook Live on August 18th 7pm EST to test your shark knowledge in our first ever Trivia Night! Yes- there will be PRIZES involved!   #SirenSoapbox #Siren #Soapbox #DiveIn #StayCurious #BeHappy #DiveInStayCuriousBeHappy #sharkweek #shark #sharkweek2021 #sharkweekdiscovery #discovery #sharkguardian #ocearch #reefbox #MakeADifference #ChallengeOfTheWeek #Explore #Adventure #Challenge #GetOutOfYourComfortZone #Podbean #Spotify #Pandora #IHeartRadio

We have a small snippet of what to expect- all she told us was “There is a lot of research that indicates that we don’t know about ourselves as well as we think we do- sometimes we don’t want to know the truth!"  Our assigned soapbox topic- “How well do you think you know yourself? Consider areas that might be your blind spots” Challenge of the week: Learn more about Kokology & play with loved ones #SirenSoapbox #Siren #Soapbox #DiveIn #StayCurious #BeHappy #DiveInStayCuriousBeHappy #kokology #hiddenself #subconscious #game  #socialexperiment #MakeADifference #ChallengeOfTheWeek #Explore #Adventure #Challenge #GetOutOfYourComfortZone #Podbean #Spotify #Pandora #IHeartRadio

What do you do when you gotta go when you are on the go and have no place to um go? We have the tools to discuss this topic and that is what the sirens are going to dive into today. For the past few months the sirens have been testing different female urinal devices. Trigger warning, if you are easily offended or squeamish hearing about human body functions, then this episode probably isn’t for you. But we are glad that our newest guest siren, Nessie, trying out her deep purple tail for the first time, isn't easily offended or squeamish!

Challenge of the Week: Tell us about a simple device that you discovered that makes something in your life much easier (maybe we will even try it out in a future episode!)

Recently, we have been dealing with a lot of topics on self discovery and are going to do something a little bit more light hearted today- the topic is Geocaching, the world’s largest treasure hunt! The first geocache was placed on May 3rd, 2000. The rules are simple: download the app, geocaching, follow the gps navigation and clues to the cache. When you find it- make sure to act cool, you don't want to give away the secret to “muggles” (these are non-players), take a prize and leave a prize of equal value and sign the log book. Make sure to put the cache back in the same hiding spot for the next player. Then you log your find into your app. Be sure to always be aware of your surroundings and follow local rules. It is always nice to “cache in, trash out” as they say.. Meaning as you are on the trails, leave them prettier than you found them by taking out any garbage you see. Tune in to hear about the Siren's experience with geocaching! Challenge of the Week: Get out in your area and have an adventure! Go on a treasure hunt! Geocache, and tell us the best treasure you found, maybe it’ll be in a cache you find OR maybe it’ll be part of the journey! #SirenSoapbox #DiveIn #StayCurious #BeHappy #DiveInStayCuriousBeHappy #Geocache #geocaching #treasure #hunt #treasurehunt #MakeADifference #ChallengeOfTheWeek #Explore #Adventure #Challenge #Podbean #Spotify #Pandora #IHeartRadio

On May 23, it was World Turtle Day! To "shell"-ebrate, the sirens read The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe. This is a heartwarming story about a woman returning to her childhood beach house in Lowcountry, repairing her relationship with her mother, and becoming a “turtle lady” along the way. The sirens dive into the topic of sea turtle conservation.  To help us with our discussion, we have a very special guest! She is the New York Times best selling author of 27 books and has been the recipient of numerous awards. The Beach House has also been turned into a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie. She has been a conservationist for over 20 years, supporting many organizations and is a member of the Island Turtle Team. Her nickname is “South Carolina’s Queen of the Beach Read”. Can you guess our special guest?! Challenge of the week: Light one candle: Think globally, act locally! Tell us one thing you are doing to make a difference and check out Mary Alice Monroe's Facebook Group, "Light 1 Candle" #SirenSoapbox #DiveIn #StayCurious #BeHappy #DiveInStayCuriousBeHappy #TheBeachHouse #MaryAliceMonroe #Light1Candle #MakeADifference #ChallengeOfTheWeek #SeaTurtles #Turtle #WorldTurtleDay #Podbean #Spotify #Pandora #IHeartRadio
