MOTM #024: Gender, Footwear, and the Pursuit of Happiness with NiK Kacy

Monday, June 25th, 2018

An episode to upstage all episodes. NiK Kacy came and sat with me on my couch, and yes we talked about shoes and how they created their own brand, but honestly we talked about so much more. Tune in to hear not only their story, but my story…the parts that often get left out simply because I overlook them, and, well, because people don’t ask. This is an episode that is extremely special to me, and one that I truly believe embodies the spirt of this podcast. Happiness is for everyone. Movement unites us all. Happy pride.
