Producer Raya Hudson writes:

Coming out is one of the most difficult parts of transitioning and coming to terms with the pressure of being socially appropriate puts trans people in a tight box. We talk about the process and the trauma of coming out – and getting out of the box society puts us in.

How To Be A Billionaire In 5 Easy Steps: What is hustle culture?

Producer Chris Josiah talks to social media expert Austin Braun, who gives us the rundown of what hustle culture is – and why he thinks it’s so harmful. Chris says: 

On social media, I see hustle culture just about everywhere. It has grown substantially over the past decade, especially when these creators realized they could use this culture to turn a profit. Oftentimes, this culture demands a toxic lifestyle – one where you put aside the things that make you happy and focus entirely on work.

I sat down with Austin Braun, a social media expert and digital media strategist, to get a better understanding of this culture. Is it helpful or harmful? How are people profiting off of this? Does this lead to burnout? All that and more on the introductory episode of How To Be A Billionaire In 5 Easy Steps!

Crashing: He’s A Fun Date on A Full Moon

“People find wolves fascinating. Whether you hate ‘em or love ‘em, people like to talk about them a lot.” Ed Bangs has always loved spending time in the great outdoors. He worked as a wildlife biologist in Alaska, and then became the first Federal Wolf Recovery Coordinator in 1986. 

“Wolves have always been big symbols in human stories, because they are just like us. Early humans viewed wolves as good parents, strong hunters, and they valued them as fellow passengers on our planet.” That all changed with agriculture. At one time there were wolves everywhere in America north of what is now Mexico City, from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic. Humans killed nearly all of them with poison over the course of the 19th and 20th century, and in 1986, there were only five grey wolves in total north of the Rocky Mountains. 

On this week’s episode of Crashing, Bangs shares stories of his interactions with wolves during the introductory effort that started in the late eighties, and his history with the Fish and Wildlife service.
