Listen 2 Me is a labour of love between two life-long friends and queer career creatives.
Meet the Qualified Queer Creatives
Renee is the bifurious Mom friend you didn’t know you needed. She’ll yell at you for talking smack on yourself and then spend the next twenty minutes telling you how #amazing you are anyway. A volunteer editor, member of her local Writer’s Guild and writer of short stories, novels and poems, she’s working to get her first piece published ANY DAY NOW. Currently living in the frozen wastes of Edmonton (that’s in Canada!), she’s raising two corgis with her partner in life and culinary endeavours, while working full time as a professional email answerer.
Gio hasn’t stopped talking since he started, so his whole life has been leading up to the moment he decided to make a podcast. He created his own graphic design company after escaping the hamster wheel of #corporate Toronto (that’s in Canada!). Gio has worked with #fashion designers, international sportswear brands, Amazon (yes, that Amazon), Pride festivals, and many more local outfits in his current stomping grounds of #Windsor (that’s in Canada!). He’s very passionate about his work and very humble, but that hasn’t stopped him from setting his career ambitions as high as he can reach (which it’s pretty high, he’s 6’3”).
Do you want to be healthier? Be more productive? Cultivate self-love? So do we!
Spend some time with two old friends every Wednesday as we deep dive into the world of self-improvement and creative achievement. Renee and Gio are lifelong queer creatives who are fun, witty and missing from your life. We love giving unsolicited, unqualified advice—and sometimes it’s even pretty good! Now we’re bringing it to your ears.
Listen to us: it’ll be worth it.
