Episode 95 – Justin Tucker aka Trailhead Justin

It’s been scientifically studied (and proven) that being in nature, hearing nature “sounds” and feeling sunlight on your skin helps elevate your mood and is good for your mental health. Couple that with a nice hike to get the heart rate going, and I guarantee you’ll feel better after only an hour outdoors. Justin Tucker aka Trailhead Justin probably spends more of his day outdoors than indoors, going on day hikes, riding bikes through trails, kayaking….if it’s outdoors, he’s interested. Listen as he talks about growing up in Woodlawn (and why he feels that area is purposefully “neglected” by the state), the complete 180 he made when he was living in New York and working in fashion, how he got into the “outdoors” lifestyle, and the impact BIPOC collaboration has on opening up the lifestyle for others.

Episode 94 – Otis Glenn

Otis Glenn is a native of East Baltimore, DDH to be exact. It’s a term I’ve heard a few times, and when I sat down with the owner of Therapy BRND (a mental health focused clothing brand) we talked about the origins of the term. We also talk about the pivotal moments in Otis’s life that lead to him starting his clothing line, the importance of continuing acceptance of mental health issues (and wellness) in the black community, anime (which seems to be a running theme as of late). and advice for those wanting to start their own clothing line.
