    #41 Eliza Bleu- Human Trafficking Survivor and Advocate

    #41 Eliza Bleu- Human Trafficking Survivor and Advocate

    The United Nations quotes human trafficking as the hidden figure of crime, with estimates showing that only 0.04% of survivors of human trafficking cases are identified. Our guest for today, Eliza Bleu, is one such survivor who miraculously survived a tragic case of human trafficking right here in the US. As a 17-year-old minor, Eliza moved to LA with big dreams of becoming a star. Forty-eight hours later, the man who promised her heaven on earth sold her to another man for a mere $500. Today Eliza is an advocate combating human, sex, and child trafficking, an industry worth $150 billion. In this episode, Eliza and I discuss facts and figures around human trafficking, detecting child sexual abuse material online, and the Stockholm syndrome in human trafficking.

    #39 Chris Williamson- Modern Wisdom

    Chris Williamson is the host of the podcast Modern Wisdom. After being a club promoter for over a decade,  running more than a thousand events, and most famously appearing on Love Island, Chris, tired of the party scene, started the podcast to expand his purview. Although he still runs club nights, he now spends most of his time hosting his show, a job he can’t believe he is paid to do. He also has a Master’s degree in International Marketing, which he uses to make the most of his events. In this episode, I talk to Chris about his time on reality shows, learning from relationships, and how taking responsibility for your life can be liberating.

    #38 Keisha Grey

    #38 Keisha Grey

    Keisha Grey is a highly acclaimed former adult star with more than 1.5 million fans on Instagram. Her meteoric rise to become one of the most sought-after actresses in the industry was not without a few hiccups, though. First, Keisha battled addiction, and her fall from grace led to a short stint at Dunkin Donuts. Nonetheless, her determination to kick out the habit and subsequent journey to sobriety is a story of perseverance, gratitude, and love. Interestingly, Keisha is our most requested guest, and she talks about her exit from mainstream shooting, finding love, and why porn is an art.

    #37 Aella- Monogamy, Polyamory, and Sex Work

    #37 Aella- Monogamy, Polyamory, and Sex Work

    Aella is one of OnlyFans' most successful creators. Aella was homeschooled in a fundamentalist Christian household. After leaving home and finding herself unable to afford college, she found herself in a series of demoralizing jobs, the worst of which included working in a windowless factory and being exposed to sunlight for only two days every week. She escaped that awful life through camgirling and escorting. She briefly worked in the "safe for work" sector before returning to porn and becoming the owner of one of the most lucrative accounts on OnlyFans. In this episode, Aella and I discuss the varying definitions of degrading work, the value of monogamous vs. polyamorous relationships, and how she unwittingly humanized sex workers through her social media presence.
    When the pandemic hit the US,  Aella was escorting and decided she needed to find a different way of doing her work. In her journey to becoming an OnlyFans creator, she felt anxiety about marketing her pornographic content openly.


    In her "safe for work" roles, Aella had created a network of influential peers who were unaware of her experience doing sex work.  There was a tenable discomfort around introducing her content to those peers, and she feared that people would no longer want to be publicly associated with her. She entertained the nagging feeling that her reputation would shift from an intellectual to just a "titty girl." Reentering sex work had become daunting in a way that it hadn't been when she first entered the industry years before. This time, she felt she had something to lose.


    The public's perception of sex workers tends to be very one-dimensional and born from a lack of information. A lot of the resistance to sex work and sex workers results from not knowing any sex workers who are comfortable with themselves and the profession. Men and women in the industry internalize the shame projected onto them by the public and keep their work private to protect themselves. Feeling comfortable and secure about sex work goes a long way in driving an honest conversation about it and humanizing sex workers by releasing them from the shadows.

    #36 Dr. Tommy John- Wellness, Diet, and Healing

    #36 Dr. Tommy John- Wellness, Diet, and Healing

    Our bodies are unique, and the way one person’s body heals might not necessarily work for you. Which begs the question, how much control do you have on your wellness? Are you the type that follows other people’s practices without analyzing whether they can work for you? According to Dr. Tommy, the more control we have over our wellness, the better outcomes we can expect. However, this does not mean you should stop taking those wellness classes or cancel all coaching subscriptions; what that means is that you should take control of all your wellness plans. Because a wellness expert can’t fix you, the only thing he/she will do is show you how to fix yourself. Thus, it’s up to you to decide how you’ll go about fixing yourself.

Amazing Podcast

I just found your pod a few weeks ago! I love Eva and her amazing body, but Candice has an even more amazing mind! I am trying to get through all of them as quickly as I can. I have loved both of Dr. Soh’s, Dr. Hardt, Chris Williamson, Keisha, Aella, Tera, but so far my favorite has to be Wayne Dupree! Can't wait to listen to the rest, keep up the good work!
