Erica Mandy left her six-figure 'dream job' as a TV news reporter in Los Angeles, the second largest news market in the country, all because of two things: 1) She kept hearing from people that they were tuning out news all together because it was too "depressing." 2) She, herself, was feeling depressed and anxious from ten years of covering horrific stories and presenting them in an alarmist way.

So, she decided to do something about it. She up and quit her secure, six-figure job to launch a new kind of news with theNewsWorthy. It presents a few of the top national stories of the day in a less alarmist way + provides several more upbeat tech, business, entertainment and other interesting news in what I call a "fast, fair and fun" way.

theNewsWorthy has now been featured on Apple Podcasts several times and has been written about by Brit+Co and was named one of Salon.com's "12 Essential Current Events Podcasts."

In this episode, Branden and Erica dove into what it’s like to work in the news industry, how we can fight to make it better, and how we can be more intentional about consuming the news.

British visual artist Shantell Martin has originated her work upon the foundation of these two key questions: WHO ARE YOU? And ARE YOU YOU? After moving to New York from Tokyo, she became best known for creating stream-of-consciousness drawings and light projects with childlike wonder and joy. Her artwork (— which is mainly lines and stick figures —) has appeared in the Brooklyn Museum, Museum of the Contemporary African Diaspora,  well as many other well-known art venues in New York.
