I’m a Professional Cuddler audio interview with Kassandra Brown by Sam Balter for Weird Work

  • In a previous life, Kassandra Brown was a parenting coach. Then one day, about 10 years ago, she was cuddling with a friend of hers when she had a personal breakthrough. So when she was searching for what to do next in her career, she landed on a combination of coaching and physical touch.
  • She signed up for a company called Cuddlist.
  • Kassandra believes that American culture has warped the idea of physical intimacy, and she’s on a one-woman mission to change that – one cuddle session at a time.
