Marginalized people live many realities and fight many battles all at the same time. Our unfiltered words are often confined to break room whispers, living room rants, or raw heartfelt talks with members of our community. What if anyone could be a fly on the wall during these conversations? Oftentimes, we are pressured to “Count to 10,” or play it cool despite these realities. On The Count to Ten Podcast we will be amplifying real people, stories, and conversations to break this code of silence.

Count to Ten is a weekly podcast hosted by Bri Hall who is an artist, motivational speaker, and social media creator who has amassed over 1.1 million followers on all her platforms. With a dedication to philanthropy and activism, The Count To Ten Podcast is another natural extension of her commitment to social justice and mental health.

    EP #10: The Greedy Bisexual with Jen Winston

    EP #10: The Greedy Bisexual with Jen Winston

    As a proud Bisexual woman myself, I am no stranger to the concept of biphobia. Biphobia is aversion toward bisexuality and bisexual people as individuals. It can take the form of denial that bisexuality is a genuine sexual orientation, or of negative stereotypes about people who are bisexual. It’s a common misconception that bisexuals are confused, greedy, promiscuous, must like and date both genders equally, it’s a phase, it’s the easy option, etc. In this episode, Bri and author and bisexual icon Jen Winston challenge these stereotypes and have candid conversations about being perceived as GREEDY in love and in life.

    EP #9: Show Dates: How DACA has Impacted Artists with MANNYWELLZ

    EP #9: Show Dates: How DACA has Impacted Artists with MANNYWELLZ

    In June 2012 President Barack Obama instated the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals commonly known as the DACA Program. DACA offers protection that allows undocumented persons who grew up in the US to work legally without threat of deportation and a chance to apply for citizenship. DACA recipients are extremely crucial not only to the economy, but a variety of fields including artistry. This episode, Bri talks to artist and friend MANNYWELLZ about how being Undocumented can impact the life trajectory, self image, and mental health of someone growing up in America and raise awareness about how DACA status impacts artistry.

    EP #8: Ableism in Fashion with Helya Mohammadian (Slick Chicks) and Marta Elena Cortez-Neaval (Abilitee)

    EP #8: Ableism in Fashion with Helya Mohammadian (Slick Chicks) and Marta Elena Cortez-Neaval (Abilitee)

    On this show we speak a lot about marginalized groups, and more recently we’ve been covering marginalized bodies. In the world today we see the fashion industry slowly shifting and making strides to be more inclusive of different body shapes and sizes, however this construct for clothing erases an entire population of people with both visible and non-visible disabilities. Some zippers and buttons may be difficult for people with dexterity limitations. Some clothing closures may need different placements or openings for individuals that require access for tubes, machines, and other ritual resources in their daily life. Together with adaptive fashion entrepreneurs Helya Mohammadian of Slick Chicks and Marta Elena Cortez-Neavel of Abilitee Adaptive Wear, Bri explores how the fashion industry can be changed even further to include and empower communities with specific medical needs and disabilities.

    EP #7: Excluded? The Model Minority Myth with Charlotte Nguyên

    EP #7: Excluded? The Model Minority Myth with Charlotte Nguyên

    The “Model Minority Myth,” is an identity rooted in stereotypes that assumes Asian American children are academically inclined by nature, perfect/polite in various environments/skill sets, and will pursue careers in the S.T.E.M. field. What is the problem with the Model Minority Myth? Some may be confused... isn’t the idea of being disciplined, polite, and intelligent a good thing? Well, like many stereotypes, this erases the diverse identities, intersectionalities, and experiences within a group of people. This myth emphasizes the, “pull yourself up by the bootstraps ideal,” which can also erase the systemic advantages and disadvantages that play a part in one’s own success.
    This week, join Bri as she dissects the outdated and problematic "myth" with Charlotte Nguyễn, a spiritual & transformational coach, speaker, activist and the pint-sized daughter of Vietnamese refugees.

    EP #6: The Truth of Invisible Disabilities with Kris Head

    EP #6: The Truth of Invisible Disabilities with Kris Head

    Not all disabilities are visible.

    We get THEE dirtiest looks when we pull into a handicap space as young people with the ability to walk. I get an up and down look when I mention I have a disability. This episode is close to home because non-visible disabilities are REAL. I saw a tweet where a woman said someone left a note on her car telling her off for abusing the system, “how dare you take a spot from someone who really needs it?!” The woman in the tweet revealed she was a stage 3 cancer patient. This episode, Bri explores navigating our world with an invisible disability, what to say (and what not to say), and why people should, well, mind their business with photographer, cinematographer, and her partner, Kris Head.
