Fictional Podcasts

So between radio and real estate, I don’t get much time to unwind and escape. I’ll be honest (and this may come as a shock)…I don’t only listen to just the radio. What! Yes, I am human just like you, haha. I’m in my car a lot when I’m not at the station, so I’ve really been getting into fictional podcasts lately. These are beyond narrations and beyond “books on tape.” These are full-on productions as if you were watching a Netflix series with your eyes closed. Some of these are so unbelievably put together, I’ve spent days thinking about them, I’ve been that shook! I haven’t gone beyond what’s in the Apple podcasts app…so I’m sure there’s more incredible ones out there. But I had to share these with you! Lots feature well-known actors and actresses. Dive in and I hope you have fun with these like I did! Enjoy! Read full article >>

Hot Hands for the Homeless

Our friends at The Mystery Hour are hosting a big fundraiser this year: Hot Hands for the Homeless. It will benefit The Connecting Grounds and their work with the homeless. The Mystery Hour crew saw a documentary about the Springfield Street Choir, and afterwards, there was a Q&A with a couple of homeless men. Someone asked what they most need and the both said, “Hot Hands!” It turns out they literally save lives over the winter. Hoping to raise enough for 25,000 Hot Hands. Read full article >>

Tofu-Themed Gifts

What’s a holiday without tofu? I am so very happy to see these lighthearted gifts rolling out just in time for the holidays. Whatever you celebrate…or don’t celebrate…wouldn’t your home be complete with a tofu calendar, tofu scented candle, or how about a wet dog scented candle? That has nothing to do with tofu, but everything to do with PETA, who is responsible for all of these lovely gift ideas! Check more of them out here and get your vegan friends something cool this holiday! Read full article >>
