October Madness Trailer

Welcome, friends!

We have almost made it to my favorite time of the year; October is near!

Last year, I scoured the interwebs to find the most gruesome plastic and cosmetic surgery fails. I even threw in a few chilling Tinder stories that ended in murder.

This year, I've decided we're taking a trip back to the 14th century. I'll be talking about The Black Death. Also known as the Great Mortality, the pestilence, the plague!

I'm warning you; I won't be holding back on this one. It might get a bit graphic and gruesome.

Listeners Discretion is Advised

Join me the whole month of October as we delve deep into all things Plague related.

Hey there!
I'm Carissa, host, content creator, and producer of the indie podcast Beauty Unlocked.
Growing up, I was frequently compared and criticized for my looks and weight. This started the vicious cycle of being self-critical and loathing my body. I knew I wasn't the only one suffering from society's ridiculous notion of what "we should look like." I started digging deeper and researching various topics, and the rest is h(er)story!
Beauty Unlocked The Podcast aims to educate and bring awareness of our society's obsession with physical beauty and the emotional consequences these impossible beauty standards have. Beauty Unlocked's social media platform showcases not only my work but that of other artists, illustrators, and fellow podcasters that I admire and that share a similar message of inspiration, empowerment, positivity, and raising awareness on a variety of social issues.
