Make Sure Your Friends Are Okay Podcast hosted by yours truly
This podcast at its core is all about normalizing tough conversations, being there for our friends, and owning our mental health. Our guests come from all walks of life; musicians, YouTubers, actors, influencers, business professionals, mental-health professionals, and every-day people. We want our listeners to feel like a fly on the wall during a real and raw conversation between friends — both new and old. These conversations are lighthearted and surprisingly deep while breaking down societal barriers and getting real. Now more than ever, with the vast majority of human interaction happening at a distance, we want to know how people are doing…really.
