    This Entire Building is Probably Recycled

    Time for a format refresh as we lean into what i'm affectionately referring to as the second season of the Jungle Jim's Podcast. This week, I sit down with Carrie and Erin of the Cincinnati Recycling and Reuse Hub to talk about some cool upcycling practices framed around how we recreate a lot of our spaces at Jungle Jim's using recycled products! Don't forget to grab your Bonne Maman and Ilchester advent calendars to taste along with me next week!

Mr_Pyrite ,

The show is as unique as the store!

I love listening to the history of this store, getting information about unique products, where the store will be going in the future and what the store has done for the community. In a recent podcast I listened to it was mentioned what could be done with the podcast room when not in use. You need some animals that you can set up as props to look like they’re creating a podcast when you don’t have people in there.

Great show!

Mark kickass! He’s one lucky potato!

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ :) ,

⭐️⭐️⭐️8/5⭐️⭐️⭐️

Entertaining content to listen to while doing ideal tasks like cooking, cleaning, driving, desk work or stocking shelves.

Every episode you’ll learn something new about business, food, international cultures, local lore, and much more.

An amazing resource for people in Cincinnati looking for fun community driven events.

Mark is a very genuine and down to earth guy, very approachable, very easy to talk to. I’d rate him the #2 content creator named Mark from Cincinnati (sorry big fan of Markiplier)
