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.

Season 2 Coming Early 2021…

The MSYFAO Podcast was introduced during a time where more people than ever were left with feelings of isolation and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite there being countless podcasts and resources regarding mental health, The MSYFAO Podcast is unique in that it targets an audience that values the idea of destigmatizing and normalizing conversation about our mental health. Targeting the Millennial and Gen-Z demographic, our podcast taps into a market that is largely underserved in the mental health podcasting space. Together, we have the opportunity to change lives and the world we live in for the better. We are currently preppin our second season and are set to release early 2021.
