At The End Of The Day with Hannah Sung
How to make work meaningful with Nana aba Duncan & Garvia Bailey
Season 1, Ep. 3
The Great Resignation is an indication that many people are questioning their work. Is this how I want to spend my life? Is my work meaningful to me?
These are questions that Nana aba Duncan, Garvia Bailey and I have asked ourselves many times. We founded the Media Girlfriends podcast company in 2020. It was a scary leap but also a natural evolution.
In this episode, I speak with my closest colleagues to discuss career trajectories and how to make work meaningful.

How to be the Internet’s Favourite Dad (aka be yourself on social media) with Brittlestar
Season 1, Ep. 8
Brittlestar, or Stewart Reynolds, is known as the Internet’s Favourite Dad. Stumbling into becoming a content creator as a second career, he has been making viral videos for almost a decade. His videos channel his comedic dad persona while touching on poignant and explosive topics–for example, calling out anti-vaxxers. In this episode, I ask Stewart for advice on how to be very public with opinion, and personality, in a world that is not always hospitable to hot takes (yes, I’m looking at you, social media).Relevant links:Subscribe to my newsletter: www.endoftheday.ca Instagram: www.instagram.com/at_the_eod Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ateod Brittlestar on Twitter: @brittlestarwww.brittlestar.com/ Brittlestar Video - “Reasons Not To Get The Vaccine”: https://twitter.com/brittlestar/status/1371187206388338693

How to have tough conversations about racism featuring Indigenous educators Kelly Brownbill and Madelaine McCracken
Season 1, Ep. 7
Anti-Indigenous racism is built into the foundation of Canada. The more truthfully we face that fact, the better we can take up our ongoing obligation to combat it (if you’re non-Indigenous, like me, I’m looking at you). But when it comes to having conversations about Canada’s colonial past and present, it can be hard to know where to start. I asked two educators to join me today, who each have expertise in doing this with different audiences. Our first guest is Kelly Brownbill, who teaches workshops with the goal of healthy, equitable relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and communities. Our second guest is Madelaine McCracken from the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society, whose work is geared towards children. Between the two of them, I hope you get lots of actionable takeaways today.

How to break the bystander effect with Julie Lalonde
Season 1, Ep. 6
Last fall, a woman was sexually assaulted on public transit in Philadelphia. And there was a ton of social media disbelief – how could other passengers just sit there and not do anything? That’s why I reached out to Julie Lalonde for my podcast. Julie is a women’s rights advocate and public educator, and she’s been teaching bystander intervention for over 10 years.In this episode, Julie gives us life-changing tools for how to react when we witness harmful behaviour, whether it’s violence, hate crimes, catcalling, or online abuse. Ultimately, her tools are about creating safe communities and once I learned them, it changed the way I saw everything. This episode references sexual assault and gender-based violence.
