Actress Alysia Reiner may play the hard-assed assistant warden, "Fig," on the Netflix hit series, Orange is the New Black, but the character can't be further away the real Alysia. "It's kind of delightful playing the opposite of me," she says. But now a mother of Liv, her five-year old daughter, Alysia has become far more selective of her roles. "You can't help but carry over your character [in real life]," she says of her and her actor husband David Alan Basche. It's easier to psychologically process the character but physically - it can be a little more challenging.
When asked about any similarities between parenting and taking on a new character, Alysia says that you have to have "a beginner's mind" and "the ability to wonder." It's that "beginner's mind" that has helped Alysia move beyond some of the harder, unexpected aspects of being a mom. "Conscious parenting is the hardest job on the planet," she affirms. In the 29th episode of SRO Conversations, Alysia opens up about the "unspoken" aspects of parenting, muses over her character roles over the year and tells us how why her husband, David Alan Basche, was everything she told herself she didn't want.
Orange Is the New Black's second season premieres on June 6, 2014.

"If I didn't pay attention to nutrition, I wouldn't have had a pro-career as an athlete," remarks former ironman triathlete Brendan Brazier and co-founder of the nutrition food brand Vega. Having kept extensive nutrition journals when in training, Brendan was shocked to discover that he was gaining a pound of fat every three weeks. Every doctor he turned to said the same thing: You're putting more calories in than you're burning. But with 40 hours of training a week and a strict vegan-based diet, he couldn't see how that was possible.
On the 28th episode of SRO Conversations, Brendan discusses mindful nutrition, talks about how he was able to listen to his own body needs, achieve rapid recovery after intensive training, and achieve optimal health in everyday life even when not training. "The goal of eating is not to get more calories, it's to get more nutrition," he says. "You can be overfed and undernourished. Take white bread, you can feel full but you're really not because you're not getting any nutrients."

On the 31st episode of SRO Conversations, Creative Director of The IOU Project, Kavita Parmar reflects on entrepreneurship, friendship, family, travel and falling in love. "Can we have it all?" asks Kavita, "I think you can have it all. It's just is reflected in percentages."
Having left home at 16 years of age, Kavita developed a fiery sense of independence and personal identity. "I think the one thing in society that we do so wrong is that we convince people that loving what you do is not priority #1," she insists. Though it may be unconventional thinking now that she is both a wife and mother she says it has to be about her first in terms of who she is. "Then I'm other things," she adds. "I'm a wife and a mother...[but] I don't want my son to know me just as his mother, I want him to know me as a person, to know what I believe, to know what I do."
