Karma Is The Guy On The Chiefs: Pageantry, Football, & Dating with Kansas City Chiefs Heiress, Gracie Hunt
With so much buzz about Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce, and the Kansas City Chiefs, I figured it was time to bring on an insider. Today's episode is with Chiefs Heiress, former Miss Kansas USA, and athlete, Gracie Hunt! Gracie talks about her experience pivoting to pageantry to follow in her mom's footsteps after a devastating sport injury. We chat about how pageants have influenced her confidence, eloquence, and her thoughts on the controversial swimsuit category. Of course, we dive into her family dynamic and how owning the Chiefs has impacted her friendships, dating, and her typical Sunday football routine. Knowing both Taylor and Travis, Gracie shares her thoughts on the romance, how it has influenced women's interest in sports, and whether the two are potentially endgame.

What was I made for? | Ep.25
I saw the Barbie movie and I have been in my feels!! In this episode I share my thoughts about the movie, and how the message of the film relates to women in life and on social media. I reflect on what I was “made for” as the movie ends with the iconic Billie Eillish song that has every girl on TikTok feeling proud to be a woman. Let’s recap Fun on Weekdays new apparel drop, our 5K in LA, and other recent events! I also share home updates such as moving, setting expectations with my boyfriend, and excitement for a new chapter of life. Thank you for celebrating TWO years of Fun on Weekdays with me as I take some time away from the podcast to reset, refresh, and relax for a few weeks.

Fun, Energetic, and Relatable!
I recently discovered this podcast, and ever since then I’ve been obsessed! It’s so relatable and fun and Jenna is so thoughtful with her questions and responses. I get inspiration and takeaways from each episode
Love this podcast !!!
I love listening to FOW because Jenna is so fun and energetic! I can listen to her when I am having a bad day and her personality just makes me in a better mood! She always has good topic and cool people on the show! Definitely give her a listen! You won’t regret it!
the best 20-something influencer’s podcast
i do truly enjoy a few other influencers’ pods, but none of them have the interviewing skills of Jenna. seriously, she does such a good job of listening and piggybacking off what the guests say rather than reading off a list or bringing it back to herself. i love Jenna and only wish she lived closer to me so i could attend events 🏻
