Utah’s One Thing: Trent Hunsaker founder of Death Ray Media

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Utah is a big place and sometimes we like to go outside the Wasatch Front and find amazing people. Episode 67 brought us Trent Hunsaker all the way from northern Utah, aka: Logan. He is the founder of Death Ray Media, host of the Smodcast, host of Show us your Wits, host of Death Ray wrestling podcast and A Part of Him Podcast Network. Trent said the one thing he would tell someone visiting Utah that they had to do before leaving would be to talk to some Mormon Missionaries. Yep, there you have it folks, we never thought we would hear that. However, Trent says that it gives an abrupt and shocking perspective of the culture.

Episode 66 Gender Equality. Dead Last. Thanks Utah.

Standard

Episode 66 brought to you by Chris and his gambling tips.

Did you read that Utah ranked on WalletHub DEAD LAST, yep you read that correctly, dead last in gender equality. But of course, we’re not totally surprised. They ranked Utah based on 1. Equal treatment in workplace environment, 2. Education and health, 3. Political empowerment. You can read HERE about the rankings and where else Utah falls on areas such as share of lawmakers, doctor affordability, and math scores. If you could only see us shaking our heads, but this is a podcast so of course you can’t.

Sometimes we like to find lists of awesome things about Utah, and sometimes not so awesome. This week we ran down (ha, see what we did there) the most dangerous intersections for pedestrians. Good thing Jeremy and Bre made it out alive!

We also found a great list of 60 Cool and Unusual things to do in Utah! We said, count us in! So we started breaking it down for you. We will make sure to do a few until we run out.  What is your favorite unusual thing in Utah? How many of these did you know about! We love these lists always have some new Utah treasures. And many of them could be something to do if you’re visiting Utah.
