Ep. 293: Jackie Fouchia – Oh, She Healthy
Jackie Fouchia is a coach at Orangetheory Fitness Lowry and creator of Oh She Healthy health coaching, and she’s the guest on Ep. 293 of the Jon of All Trades Podcast debuting June 9, 2021. What’s the first thing Jackie Fouchia might like you to think after looking at or talking to her? Oh, she healthy. That just so happens to be the name of her health coaching business, which you can find at her website. What will you learn when you work with Jackie? In her own words: You’ll learn how to make healthy choices that nourish your best body, so that your best-looking body can naturally emerge. We’ll work together to get back to basics by focusing on eating nutrient-rich, whole foods, and find a sustainable nutrition plan that is supportive of your specific metabolic body type so you can lose weight quickly and feel great while doing it. Jackie also happens to be a Coach at Orangetheory Fitness Lowry, which is where I’ve connected with her. You might remember her colleague Felicia Hernandez from just two and a half months ago on Episode 284. I’ve grown to love doing Orangetheory, and we talk about working around injuries, how she can time a minute out in her head pretty much without fail, and most importantly, her exceptional playlists. If you love music of all kinds, you’ve got to hit up one of Jackie’s classes. This is a fun episode that touches on health coaching, eating right, entrepreneurship, exercise, music, and whatever else we can cover. Jackie is so much fun to talk to, and thanks maybe to her Detroit upbringing, shares my native tongue of casual profanity. Be sure to check out Oh She Healthy at her website and on Instagram.

Ep. 292: Damien Zouaoui and Jessica French – Co-Founders of The Beer Spa
Jessica French and Damien Zouaoui are the Co-Founders of The Beer Spa in Denver, and they are the guests on Ep. 292 of the Jon of All Trades Podcast debuting June 2, 2021. Jessica French and Damien Zouaoui are the husband and wife team who created The Beer Spa, and seem to have given their lives over to it entirely based on their incredible dedication to getting it off the ground and ensuring everyone has an optimal experience. What is The Beer Spa? Here’s how they describe it on their website: The Beer Spa is a modern-day wellness space that combines a day spa with a craft beer bar. Whether relaxing after work or living it up on vacation, come enjoy our beer-inspired spa services while sipping on a locally sourced craft beverage.With our one-of-a-kind spa and wellness experiences, we strive to be the best spa in Denver. Our beer therapy sessions are made for both men and women, as well as for couples or singles, who are in need of relaxation and de-stressing. As a recent patron of The Beer Spa (Ed. note: I was not compensated for my visit, and actually booked this interview after finishing my session with my wife there.), I can tell you this was one of the most fun experiences I’ve had in a long time. The beers come from a local craft brewery, the staff is friendly, helpful and attentive, and the experience itself is phenomenal. You start in the infrared sauna, hop into a cool shower, and then slip into a warm bath infused with hops, barley, and other elements that are not only relaxing, but great for the skin and your mental well-being. I mean, you’re in your little private room butt naked relaxing in a spa with a beer in your hand. What’s not to love? Jessica and Damien are an absolute joy to talk to, and this episode is as fun as it is informative. I loved learning about their custom plumbing work in partnership with Kohler, hearing about how insane immediate demand crashed their booking system, and marveling at their 100+ hour work weeks to make this thing a success. You’ll love it, too. Visit The Beer Spa at their website, or check them out on Facebook or Instagram. This episode is available on iTunes, for streaming on Spotify, or at the Jon of All Trades homepage.

Ep. 291: Peyton Garcia – Newsletter Editor at City Cast Denver
Peyton Garcia is the Newsletter Editor at City Cast Denver and she is the guest on Ep. 291 of the Jon of All Trades Podcast debuting May 19, 2021. Peyton Garcia is the Newsletter Editor of City Cast Denver, one of my new favorite things in this city I love. What is City Cast Denver? I’ll let their own words explain it: City Cast Denver is Denver’s first daily news podcast, celebrating and challenging the city’s news breakers and culture makers; activists and artists; neighbors and ne’er-do-wells. City Cast Denver is also a daily email that’s got the news you need, plus what to do tonight, where to eat this weekend, and all kinds of delightful ways to connect with the city. Both the podcast and email are free and fresh every weekday morning at 6 a.m. On this week’s show, Peyton and I discuss our backgrounds in student media (we’re both CSU Rams), the benefits and challenges of hyperlocal journalism, journalists as “the enemy of the people,” how City Cast views competition with other news outlets, and a ton of other stuff I care deeply about. The media plays a vital role in understanding our world, so any time we can dig in and talk about everything from the hustle young journalists have to have to recent news about The Colorado Sun buying Colorado Community Media, it’s a conversation I’m always itching to have. That stuff is all phenomenal. My favorite part of this episode though is hearing Peyton’s insane story about the beginning of the pandemic. I’m not going to step on it here, but it happens right near the end, and it’s well worth waiting around for. I am literally going to think about it every time I reflect on the early days of the pandemic. Be sure to get onboard with City Cast Denver at their website. And be sure to check out more about Peyton on her personal page. This episode is available for download on iTunes, streaming on Spotify, at the Jon of All Trades homepage, and on podcatchers everywhere.

Ep. 290: Crystal Egli and Parker McMullen Bushman
Parker McMullen Bushman (right) and Crystal Egli are the co-founders of Inclusive Journeys and the Digital Green Book, and they’re the guests on Episode 290 of the Jon of All Trades Podcast debuting May 12, 2021. Crystal Egli and Parker McMullen Bushman are the women behind Inclusive Journeys and the Digital Green Book Project. From their website, here’s a bit more about Inclusive Journeys and the Digital Green Book: Inclusive Journeys is a tech company founded by two Black women with a mission to create data-driven, economic incentives for businesses to be more inclusive and welcoming, resulting in safer spaces for people of marginalized identities.We are creating a digital platform where individual users can rate businesses and spaces on their customer service experience corresponding to the users’ specific identities (race, ability, gender, etc).Gathering this data will allow users to plan their travels and conduct business with peace of mind, provide businesses with the incentive and resources to recruit and retain a diverse customer base, and inform policy at the highest levels. It’s an insanely cool project, and Parker and Crystal tell me all about its origins, their experiences simply existing in America as women of color, the importance of allies in helping create a society that’s more diverse, equitable and inclusive, and a lot more. It’s a show that was both incredibly fun to produce and gave me yet new insight into the experiences of those who are not straight, white, cis, able-bodied, married American dudes, distinctions that all come with a ton of privilege. Parker and Crystal are absolute forces of nature, have beauty in their hearts, and I’m confident this project is going to do great things for them. But they cannot do it without you! No matter who you are, be a part of the first 5,000 people to beta test their new Digital Green Book when it goes live on June 19th.

Ep. 289: Solo Episode – Mailbag, Conspiracies & Competition
It’s been a hot second since last we did a Mailbag episode, so I figured it was time for one. And I was wrong! I only got one question! Usually I get a nice deluge of them, but apparently you’re all busy living your lives, and I don’t begrudge you that. Hell, I’m vaccinated, the weather is sometimes nice outside, and I’d rather be literally anywhere besides here in front of this damn computer. Anyway, I answer the one question I got about which former guest’s job I’d least like to do, and then spend some time talking about why I despise conspiracy theorists so much, how I’m competitive but don’t give a crap about winning, why it’s important to listen to those we disagree with and wherever else my feral, stream-of-consciousness brain takes me. It’s 30 minutes, and I actually attempt to tie all this together at the end. Do I succeed? I don’t really care! Listen and enjoy! You can hear it on iTunes, stream it on Stitcher, get it on Spotify, or find it on my homepage.
