Informational, Inspirational & Fun

I love listening to EmotionAL Support Pod. Alessandra is such an authentic human who shares her struggles and vulnerabilities and brings out the same in her variety of interesting guests - while generally keeping the tone fun and upbeat. From motherhood to mental health struggles, I love listening to this pod during my commute.

Stop interrupting

I tried to listen to Eden Sher’s pregnancy story, but I ended up listening to the host interject every 60 seconds with some personal anecdote or other unrelated nonsense. Impossible to make it through.

Real Talk!

Alessandra and guests show us that, even in La La Land, we face maladies of the mind and the vagaries of existing as flawed beings. With warmth, humour and a diversity of perspectives, ES makes you feel like you’re in the room.
