This week we're talkin' about SEX, LOVE & OTHER THINGS (hehe shameless plug for our event on October 14th) with Co-Founder and CEO of Unbound Box, POLLY RODRIGUEZ! We discuss everything from how and why she started Unbound Box, her battle at 21 years old with colon cancer and early menopause, the male dominated sex industry, to sexuality as a whole. Polly and Unbound Box have been featured in press like Bustle, The New York Times, Bravo, Glamour, and POPSUGAR for revolutionizing the sex industry and giving the best advice as a boss-ass business owner. With that being said, here's some of the goodies we explore in the episode:
Glad we got her on show before she fricken blows up around the world because ISABELLE is a superstar inside and out. This week we are joined by Isabelle Pasquelone, born and raised in Atlanta, she's a singer, body positivity activist, and former American Idol contestant. Growing up, she was the "singer chick", who was always, always, always singing, starting voice lessons at 7 years old. For college, she attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music, the only college she applied to BTW (*snaps for Isabelle), where she created a vast network for herself, learned traditional songwriting and the craft as a whole, and never regretted her decision.
Basically, we dive into her music-based WORLD, including her ...

Taking a break from regularly scheduled programming to say HBD to LINDSEY! In this very special and very unique episode, we take the time to wish our very own almost 30 podcast host, Lindsey Simcik a happy birthday! We've compiled all the love notes we could from her family, friends and those in #almost30nation to make this birthday extra special for the one that works so hard to bring bomb content to us each week!

Pulling again from our hat of comedians our listeners know and love, we bring on the one, the only, BILLY GRIFFIN. And boy, will you sh*t your pants from laughing so hard, and within in the first minutes no less. We're keepin' things light and a lil cray cray with Billy, a Los Angeles-based comedian, actor, and host, who's been on America's Funniest Home Videos, performs local stand-up, and with the infamous Second City Improv Program in Chicago.
Right away we dive into only the most random of everyday thoughts, like "How am I going to pay for my kid's college tuition?", "How did my parents even afford that?", or "Was my father shitting himself in a closet somewhere when he realized how much it cost?" Or if that isn't hitting home for you, Billy opens up about how he went from college football star, moving to Chicago and working shitty recruiting and insurance jobs, and then moving back home.
