008- Repulsive.
008- Repulsive.
You ever meet someone, and during the course of your interaction with them they just do or say something that makes you think "wait a minute, something is amiss here."  Today's episode talks about a communal experience that occurred in the clinic that I think many can relate to.  It was cathartic to talk it out with myself. NOTE: at the time of recording there is no known mental disorder for who I am speaking about. Want to be on the show?

007 - Beth the Hemp Huntress- Hemp and the challenges in navigating the ecosystem of this miracle plant.
Today's episode provides a wealth of knowledge into a commonly misunderstood plant - Hemp! Our guest Beth aka the Hemp Huntress, gives us an in depth look into a plant with so much potential. Beth talks about her challenges carving her own niche as a disruptive capitalist in an industry that has  until relatively recently, changed from illicit to legal. With this  shift in the industry, Beth shares  frustrations with supply chains for hemp, quality standards, and the survival of quality products made from true local businesses that risk being drowned out in a sea of imitations and big business.  www.hemphuntress.com www.cbdrevolution.com http://tokeativity.com/ Have any comments about today's show?

005 - Your recruiter isn't trying to ghost you
I have the sweetest of sweetest people joining me today, Sarah, from HR. It's hard to imagine Sarah delivering some bad news to people and telling them their in trouble but indeed she has, in a FAANG company no less. What is a FAANG company you ask? I had to look it up to but it's pretty surprising. Sarah talks to us about the PR rep the HR department has to deal with, tips for new job applicants, and the REAL reason people choose to leave a company.

000 - Hello. It's a pleasure to meet you all.
Have you ever interacted with someone during the course of your day and wondered "what's that job like?"  Or maybe you were working and wished someone would just understand how things are from your position? A Fleeting Frustration is a podcast that aims to reconcile the two.  I invite everyday people to anonymously vent about their frustrations with work, school, home life, relationships, etc with the goal of teaching listeners how to interact with others in various positions.  Music: Lottery Anno Domini Beats from Youtube Creator Studio
