From being a hands-on therapist to the face of beauty on shopping TV and brands' secret weapon when developing products, there's not much she doesn't know.In this conversation, Ali and I discuss:Why the customer always comes first.Why people in the public eye who have cosmetic tweakments and don’t declare it set an unrealistic expectation for what beauty products can doWhy she hasn’t had any cosmetic procedures because she doesn’t want anything to skew the effects and therefore how good a product actually isHow a shift in how we spoke about beauty a few years ago has allowed much more ‘good’ information to get out into the world but sadly has opened the doors to some ‘bad’ information.How beauty identities, ie, being someuse who uses clean beauty for example, allows you to be marketed to better but doesn’t actually mean you’re getting better skincareWhy what works for someone else won’t necessarily work for youWhy the biggest mistake a brand can make is forgetting about the customer and much much more…To join the closed Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/emmagunavardhana.

#110 | Alison Young: Thru-Hiker, Producer, Podcaster, and Classic Music Aficionado

Backpacker Radio

In today's episode of Backpacker Radio presented by The Trek, we are joined by Alison Young.  Alison has a world-class radio voice, is a super accomplished backpacker, with a long list of thru-hikes, a former professional flutist and classic music aficionado, and the host and producer of The Trek's newest podcast, Walking Distance.  We get a crash course in all things classical music, including how Lizzo ranks alongside some of the historical greats, we talk in depth about Alison's many treks, especially her international hikes (prepare to expand your bucket list), we talk about what it's like to do long distance backpacking trips into your 50s and how she manages with two fake hips, and much more.  This is a fun conversation that hits on some really unique subject matter, we think you'll really enjoy it. We wrap the show with the most bizarre triple crown we've ever done- I'll leave it at that, we have another gross / not gross, and we learn why redheads experience less pain, spoiler alert, it's not due to their lacking a soul.
