Episode 46: Why We Exist

Episode 46: Why We Exist


Here at goodr, our Mission Statement is: We exist to give you permission to be unabashedly yourself…unless you're an asshole. We want to give you permission to come as you are and be YOU!!! Even if that means you're a middle-aged, pansexual, klepto flamingo named Carl. (Who also just happens to be our CEO.) Be sure to check out this episode to get the nitty-gritty on why we exist.

We want you to be unabashedly you. So bring your individuality, your silly, your weird, your unique, your quirky, and your penchant for collecting Basset Hound belly button lint and giving it as gifts because it’s the luckiest substance known to humankind. We want YOU to be unabashedly YOU!!! Check out our latest episode and get psyched to be YOU, weirdo!


In our mission statement, we say to be unabashedly yourself...unless you're an asshole. But what does it even mean to NOT be an asshole?! We've defined it for ourselves here at goodr because definitions are like assholes and everybody's got one. Want to know how we define it?! Check out the episode and remember always be #unabashedlyyourself!!!
