An interesting look at small fringe business
There are a lot of podcasts out there about business and the arts, but Bump and Grind is a fascinating look at those up and coming businesses that aren’t as palatable to the common person. Burlesque?!? Lucha wrestling?!? Listening to this podcast is delightful because I learn so much about what it takes to try and survive in marginalized businesses in Amercia plus so many interesting facts and info about the worlds of burlesque and wrestling. Even if you are not a fan of those topics, you’ll probably still enjoy this podcast for its casual and engaging conversation between Ophidian and Kate!
