Thank you, Princess [Love + Radio (podcast)]
Ceara Lynch has a ten year career as a self-described humiliatrix, catering to a wide variety of sexual fetishes over the internet, and gaining exposure to a unique part of the human psyche.
Perhaps the weirdest thing of all: In this interview, where she’s being herself, out of character, she seems … nice. Warm, funny, even compassionate. She humiliates men for money, but the men enjoy it.
She doesn’t say whether she has kids. If she does, I expect she sits out Career Day at school.
Musician, former boxing promoter, and self-described “hustler” Charles Farrell tells his story to the Love + Radio podcast:
Charles Farrell was born to a sophisticated middle class family in Boston, but at age 12, he left home and came of age on the street, joining “low-life culture”, the underbelly of boxing, and avant-garde piano playing.
Farrell says all his life as a hustler he’s trained himself to look for vulnerabilities in other people and take advantage of them, but he’s reformed now. He also says that’s exactly what a hustler would say.
Athlete and bank robber Tom Justice, who robbed a lot more than one bank, tells his story to the Love + Radio podcast. Justice loves bicycling and was on the shortlist for the U.S. Olympics.

Nations was previously turned down for “The Bachelor.”
We think of certain events as profoundly life-altering. Getting married or emigrating to a new country, say. But you can always get divorced, and you can almost always move back. Taylor is weighing a life decision from which there would be no turning back.
She apparently didn’t make it to the final round for Mars One.
Mathias Rust wanted to create an “imaginary bridge” bringing East and West closer together. Things didn’t quite work out for him. He tells his story to Love + Radio.
In 1987, during the last years of the Cold War, a West German teenager with only about 50 hours of flying experience rented a Cessna and departed on a two week trip. His goal was to fly over the Iron Curtain and land in Moscow.
Rust’s Wikipedia entry contradicts the story he tells to Love + Radio in a couple of minor but significant points.

On the Love + Radio podcast: A woman calls a dating phone line only to find it’s more of a phone sex line.
I listened to this while walking in the park, as I usually do with podcasts. The first part I was self-conscious because I was essentially listening to phone sex in public, even though I had my earbuds in and no one could hear it. Then I was self-conscious because I was laughing so hard.
