We're constantly getting to know our minds. And when we have guests, we get to know them behind their public image, so that you can get to know them beyond their Social Media presence. Mental health awareness and inclusivity across the human spectrum (especially with the LGBTQ+ community) is near and dear to us. We find the beauty in vulnerability.

    Episode 113 with Rachel & Hiiro - The Lost Art of Listening, Woke Fatigue

    Episode 113 with Rachel & Hiiro - The Lost Art of Listening, Woke Fatigue

    Are you listening, or are you already commenting? We chat about how comments and opinions are put on a pedestal. These days, the narrative in the digital world has already been formed before the actual narrator has had the chance to be fully listened to. Are folx reacting poorly based on woke exhaustion? And, is there a lack of emotional availability because of this, which leads to more closed-off people who have lost their superpowers of vulnerability and transparency?Some heavy-hitter topic...

This show literally blows my mind

We all need to keep our minds “in shape” and I love how Rach and Hiiro have no problem talking about mental health and their guests come on the show being very transparent about how strengthening the mind helps them be better. It makes each any every episode super candid and makes you feel like you aren’t alone. We all struggle but not everyone has the courage to speak up!

A safe place

Hiiro and Rachel are pure souls and they are sharing their lives and challenges to help others and themselves find a better and happy life.

Don’t miss out.

Relatable

This podcast exceeded my expectations! I feel like it’s a show about finding relatability. The topics are all fascinating and I can relate in some way or another. From mental health to dating to marriage to sexuality to making life decisions to yoga to just giggling about something fun. The conversations can go from serious to silly and the transitions are great. All within the first 6 episodes!! Totally worth a listen.
