  • Welcome to It's Still Happening, the podcast that explores the intersections of personal development, ancestral healing, spiritual practice, energy alchemy and conscious business for self-growth, personal freedom and to contribute to the collective transformation we desperately need in a social climate that’s constantly in crisis.

    Shared through the voice and connections of me, Ash Johns, I believe our lives are not only our own and the only way to heal forward is to pull the weeds from the root....which happens to be ALL of our ancestors.

    It's Still Happening explores, teaches and reminds us that what's still happening in our lives is a direct result of what's happened in the past—or what we call generational patterns and that I call ancestral traumas. Solving these issues in our lives and in the world requires deep healing, with courage and compassion, so we can finally move forward.

  • During the 1-900 number craze of the Nineties, one company provided the vast majority of phone sex. American Telnet was an empire founded by the man who called himself โ€œThe Telephone Pimp.โ€ He ran the company โ€œlike General Motorsโ€ and got filthy rich doing it. But for the (mostly) women who answered the calls and delivered fantasies 24-7, it was a different story. The powerful stigma against sex work was always lurking just beneath the surface, until it threatened to tear apart the whole company. Hosted by Tina Horn (Why Are People Into That?), OPERATOR is an eight-part series about big ambitions, Shakespearean-level corporate backstabbing, men and women at the cutting edge of a technological revolution...and on the front lines of a sexual one.
