Everyone is Cancelled
There’s a lot of debate about the effectiveness of cancel culture. Some argue it’s deserved, while others believe it doesn’t allow a person to grow. In today’s episode we’ll talk through the two because it is not easy. ***Just a heads up. There will be mention of transphobia, homophobia, sexual assault. Please protect yourself and skip the episode if you are easily triggered *** Questions: email Follow @FIVE12STUDIO

You're Doing Too Much
It’s been a month since the social uprising started. While talking about White Fragility and White “Guilt” is fine, the movement is becoming too much about that and not about the injustice of Black people and POC in the US. A mud mask episode of Golden Girls is now offensive, Mad Men has a disclaimer about Blackface in an episode, and actors are in their feelings about voicing cartoon characters. It's honestly way too much. Things are getting too nit-picky and we need to stop. ---- Follow FIVE12 STUDIO on all the platforms Email for questions/comments/concerns

Brands and Black Lives: Why Now?
Black Lives Matter has been a movement since 2012. Black people have been around and dealt with injustice for 400 years. Today though, brands are jumping on board that Black lives actually matter. ***I said Daddy's Girls in reference to Beyonce and The Chicks. I meant Daddy Lessons. It was late.

Talking 'Bout My Generation
Why do Baby Boomers react differently to the same ads Generation Z celebrates? Is it fair to call Generation X the forgotten generation? Are Millennials really entitled or are they breaking the rules set by those before them? Why do Baby Boomers prefer Facebook to the likes of Instagram or Snapchat? Why are Millenials and Gen Z are in love with inclusive and diverse branding? How did Gen XD set marketing trends that we still use today? Keep your ears out for new episodes of “My Generation,” coming to you VERY soon.

Solopreneuring It Solo, and Other Things (Season Finale)
Being a solopreneur solo, or single, is a beast in and of itself. For some reason we don't talk about it. Well, I'm changing that and opening myself up about running a solo business and being your own cheerleader. I also tell a story of something that happened while reaching out that taught me to practice my inner Southern "Bless your heart."  Some people won't understand your vision and that's fine--they don't have to and you don't need to waste your time (or in this case, fingers) explaining it to them.  Also, gun reform now. Thanks. --------------------------------------  FIVE12 FM is going on a brief hiatus so I decided to call this the season finale episode. Don't worry, it'll be back sooner than you can binge listen to all twelve of the episodes of FIVE12 FM and the bonus episodes focused on The Hills. ;) -------------------------------------- Be like Beyonce and rate this podcast five stars, leave a glowing review, and follow FIVE12 STUDIO on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

The Hills New Beginnings: In This House Linda Thompson is a Queen w/Rachel Moffett
This recap of THNB is a bit late for so many reasons, but before we go there: Ms. Linda Thompson, is not only mama to two handsome men, Brandon and Brody Jenner, but has co-written on one of the best soundtracks of all time, including one of the best songs in history, Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing." Besides that, she's such a supportive parent, encouraging and rooting the guys in their endeavours. Because of this, we have no choice but to stan.  Alert: this is the last weekly recap of The Hills. We discuss why, but honestly, there's only so much Justin Bobby/Audrina drama we can take. We've covered it already during seasons 3-6 of The Hills. By the way, we also talk Teen Mom OG and Degrassi, especially that episode that made us clear our throats...a lot.

Yes the World Sucks, and That's OK
Let's face it: the world feels like it's imploding on itself and it's...a lot. It's OK to acknowledge that things suck right now, and it's OK to take a breath and find your joy in the simplest of things. ____________________ Connect with FIVE12 STUDIO: Instagram: Twitter: Facebook: Email:

The Hills New Beginnings Episode 3: Get it together
On the third episode of the season, Spencer tries to get his friendship back with Brody because squad goals are his goals, Brody and Kaitlynn discuss kids, Justin Bobby sings, Audrina is still confused about her and JB after 10 years, and there's major mistreatment of Ashley and Jason Wahler that I do not stand for. A little message to MTV: get it together! __________ Follow FIVE12 STUDIO at:

What does "Body Positivity" Mean?
Ah, body positivity. A movement about loving and accepting your body as is, right now, in this moment. But what if you want to change it? Does that make you more or less part of the movement? And who makes the rules of said movement? So many questions, but I have my answers in this episode. ------- Connect with FIVE12 STUDIO: Instagram: Twitter: Facebook: Email:

The Hills New Beginnings Episode 2: A Boulder of Crystals
Stephanie and Speidi will never be family, Justin Bobby is a real superhero in combat boots, Mischa Barton sees right through the Who of Whoville's bs apology, Brandon Lee is an unsung hero, and Brody misses his single life (maybe a little too much). Plus we finally meet Ashley and Jason Wahler!  __________ Follow FIVE12 STUDIO at:

The Hills New Beginnings Episode 1: Out with the Old, In with the Old
The Hills: New Beginnings debut last night and it was...something. While some people have grown up, some people never change. MTV wants us to buy into the JB/Audrina storyline again and it's exhausting. Stephanie Pratt is indeed a queen and I will go down on that ship. Also rooting for a Brody Jenner and Justin Bobby spin-off of them surfing and talking. That's it.  --- For questions, comments, and concerns email and follow FIVE12 FM on Instagram!

The Hills OG Season 6: Seems Fake, But OK w/Rachel Moffett
Season 6 gave us Heidi's new face, one of the craziest blow ups ever, Kristin's broken heart, and Stephanie's happy ending (thank God). We also give props to Audrina for standing her ground with Justin Bobby even though her break up with Ryan seemed like an overreaction. Mostly though, we connect deeply with Game of Thrones fans because this finale was...the pits. __________ Follow Rachel at: __________ Follow FIVE12 STUDIO at:

The Hills OG Season 5: A Shock to No One, w/Rachel Moffett
A shock to no one seems to be the ongoing theme with this show. In season 5 we see nothing has changed as Audrina and JB are on again/off again, Speidi is planning their epic wedding in which we all wondered if Lauren is going to show up, our girl Kristin returns, and the season drags on to show how scripted this really is. Bonus, Stacie the Bartender is secretly the winner in all of this. __________ Follow Rachel at: __________ Follow FIVE12 STUDIO at:

The Hills OG Season 4: Truth and Time Tells All w/Rachel Moffett
We recap season four with a Justin Bobby classic because unlike season 3, season 4 didn't give us iconic one-liners and I don't want to let a good one go to waste. We meet a new guy, praise Stephanie for moving along the plot, and get really angry at a stupid rumor no one asked for and no one fully believed. Who the hell is Dino anyway?

The Hills OG Season 3: I Want to Forgive You, and I Want to Forget You w/Rachel Moffett
Season 3 of The Hills is the peak season. This is an opinion. Scientists who studied the series have concluded that season three's introduction to Justin Bobby, unfortunate run-ins, and iconic one-liners make for this season the best season of not only the series, but reality television. __________ Follow Rachel at: __________ Follow FIVE12 STUDIO at:

The Hills OG Seasons 1&2 : I Knew You Were Trouble w/Rachel Moffett
With the sun shining, rooftop down, and oversized glasses in place, Lauren Conrad drives from her home of Laguna Beach to start her career in fashion in Los Angeles. On today's episode, we look back on how at how it all started, including Heidi's hilariously terrible interview with FIDM, Jason's return, Lauren's decision not to go to Paris, and the start of Speidi. Plus, we chat about how The Hills changed a generation of Millenials, what  Jordan and Brian are up to now, and how we feel the reboot will be. I know it's a long one, but you won't be disappointed.
