    Bretman Rock: Life at the Boiling Point

    We sat down with the infamous, hot-blooded Bretman Rock for a deep interview on how he's become YouTube and Instagram famous by owning who ALL of who he is, not just the pretty parts. 

    Yes, Bretman is courageous, flamboyant, and fierce (which makes him incredibly intriguing) but he's also got many other sides, too. We were excited that he allowed us to reveal them.  

    🎧to the episode on iTunes now. It's really, really, really (did we say, really?) good.

    ✔️ Told his father he wasn’t going to be a preacher 
    ✔️ Got the gig with Maroon 5 
    ✔️ How he made going to church cool

    Gaby Dunn: Learning to Accept Being Weird

    Gaby Dunn: Learning to Accept Being Weird

    Podcaster and best-selling author Gaby Dunn @Gaby Dunn goes deep on what it’s like to be weird in a world full of ordinary.

    She’s known since she was two years old that she was a little different than the other kids (right after sticking her face in a puddle). Now she's learned to love being an oddball and actually turned this vice into a superpower.

    On this episode of Rare Breed @RARE BREED, Dunn talks to authors and hosts Sunny Bonnell and Ashleigh Hansberger @RARE BREED about everything from coming out as a bisexual, how other kids treated her differently, what her therapist said about the guys she likes to date, and how anyone can harness the power of being weird.

    Dunn has written several books and co-hosts the wildly popular Just Between Us Show @Just Between Us with Allison Raskin.

    Dunn uses her platform to spread positivity and inclusivity while tackling issues relating to sexuality, mental health (anxiety, depression, depersonalization, etc), relationships, finance, and life.

    You’ll learn how Gaby:

    ✔️ Deals with the loneliness of being weird
    ✔️ How she came out as a bisexual to her parents
    ✔️ What her therapist thinks about her attraction to other weirdos
    ✔️ The dark side of her weirdness
    ✔️ And why it’s ok to let your freak flag fly

    Maybe you know what it’s like to feel like an outsider or weirdo. Maybe you feel like a bit of an oddball and you’re different than everyone else, and wonder how not to be ashamed of that.

    Whatever rises up in you when you hear the word “weird,” you owe it to yourself to watch this exclusive interview.

    Dodie: Why a Bit of Obsessed Madness is Key

    Dodie: Why a Bit of Obsessed Madness is Key

    Get ready to dive in deep with Dodie (@doddleoddle), a 24 year old UK singer-songwriter, author, and YouTuber known for her emotionally complex lyrics. Her latest EP, Human, has amassed over 28.2 M streams on Spotify.

    Authors Sunny Bonnell (@sunnybonnell) and Ashleigh Hansberger (@ashleigh_hansberger) interview Dodie on Rare Breed (@thisisrarebreed) to talk about the virtue “Obsessed”, one of seven unconventional traits explored in their new book Rare Breed: A Guide to Success for the Defiant, Dangerous, and Different.

    In this intimate, powerful interview, Dodie explains her struggles, pain, and obsessive tendencies, and how she’s learned to give it all meaning. She’s given obsession a higher purpose in order to create work that is absolutely brilliant and gut-wrenchingly honest.

    Dodie uses her platform to spread positivity and inclusivity while tackling issues relating to sexuality, mental health (anxiety, depression, depersonalization, etc), relationships, and life.

    You’ll learn how Dodie learned to:

    ✔️ Leverage obsession as a vice and turn it into a virtue

    ✔️ Create a community where people connect and share feelings

    ✔️ Navigate fast stardom

    ✔️ Work through mental health to find purpose and clarity

    ✔️ Why her obsession has a dark side

    Maybe you too know what it’s like to have some demon-like obsession take hold of you. Maybe you too feel wired differently than everyone else, and wonder how not to be ashamed of that.

    Whatever rises up in you when you hear the word “obsessed”, you owe it to yourself to watch this exclusive interview. After all, like Dodie’s tattoo says, “A bit of madness is key.”

    iMomSoHard: Cutting Through the Noise by Owning Who You Are

    iMomSoHard: Cutting Through the Noise by Owning Who You Are

    Feeling hopeless? Nihilistic? Convinced that the human race is going to hell in the proverbial handbasket?

    After you’ve marinated in the dark side of parenting, head over to #IMomSoHard for the antidote. Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley are a duo of comic moms who bring the hilarious about the real s**t that moms worry about: Spanx, trying on bathing suits, sagging boobs, lying to your kids, post-childbirth lady parts that resemble “a basset hound with its head out the window, just flapping in the wind,” and of course, wine. Lots of wine.

    In other words, the self-deprecating moms of #IMomSoHard have turned being weird into a comedy empire. That’s why we’re proud to call them Rare Breeds. The now-infamous “trying on a bathing suit” video that nearly broke the Internet was Kristin and Jen at their best: real, vulnerable, and funny as hell.

    In this episode, hosts Sunny Bonnell and Ashleigh Hansberger discuss with Kristin and Jen what it means to follow your weird, be your authentic self in a world that tells you you're not good enough, and how they've made being weird into a career.
