In this episode of Everyday Superhumans Charlie and Kyle chat with the Hayley Hudnall, Executive Director of Austin Wildlife Rescue, about the nearly 8,000 animals AWR took in during 2019 as well as common misconceptions about wild animals and how you can help them.

Well it's time that you all get an explanation. Charlie and I had a long chat about the future of the podcast and have decided to put it in an indefinite hiatus. Between the two of us we've gotten so busy in our day to day lives that we haven't had a chance to work on the show. Outside of our work and social lives, Charlie is actively involved in several organizations and is attending an intense coding bootcamp. Meanwhile I am busy working with the City of Austin on a project I am very involved with, and working on a new podcast.  Sadly there are so many hours in a day that we decided to call a long break on Everyday Superhumans. We would like to thank the following for making this podcast possible. Anna Hanstrom - Without her we would have never been able to extend our reach from podcasting to written content like the Superscripts and the Newsletter. In just her short time with the show we were able to grow so much. We wish the best for her and her future podcasting adventures! Joel Coffman - Who provided excellent camera work for our videos in featuring the Sustainable Food Center and We Are Blood. Jennifer Sneary - Who provided the editing work for our video series.

A Little Help From Her Friends with Ashley Fontenot
Ashley Fontenot is superhuman in every sense of the word, she’s an entrepreneur, philanthropist, fitness enthusiast, and a mother of three! How she sleeps is a mystery to all of us, but how she’s managed to get everything done isn’t at all.

As cheesy as it sounds, the power of friendship can bring you further than you can go on your own.
