Introducing the "Let's Change Beauty" Podcast
197
This is a surprise mini-episode as part of a fun new series I am going to be doing once a month where I introduce you to other wonderful podcasts that might bless and benefit your life.  These shows are all produced by or part of the podcast network that I am apart of, Cloud10 Media. It has been so rewarding for me to collaborate with other podcasters who are working hard to get their important messages out into the world.  The show I am featuring today is a brand new podcast called Let's Change Beauty, and it’s powered by the Dove Self-Esteem Project. The Let's Change Beauty Podcast speaks directly to the insane pressures and beauty stereotypes that can really deflate our body confidence and self-esteem - and impact our kids, as well as our own wellbeing! The podcast is hosted by cultural expert Jess Weiner, who sparks meaningful conversations with guests and industry experts from the worlds of beauty, gaming, sports, and entertainment. She focuses on educational, inspiring and practical ways we can all do something to redefine beauty for the next generation. Listen and subscribe here.
