    Introducing Help A Human Out

    Introducing Help A Human Out

    No matter what you’re going through -- a divorce, a bankruptcy -- there is someone who has walked your path, and we’re going to find them so they can help light your own way through. 


    That’s what this podcast is all about. Every episode, we’ll meet a person going through something nobody in their real life can relate to:


    On Help A Human Out, our job is to find someone who has been there, so nobody has to feel alone in their struggle. 


    We’re taking difficult, confusing or isolating situations and normalizing them...one person, one problem, one podcast episode at a time. Everything that feels like uncharted territory to YOU is terrain someone else has walked before. Whatever you’re going through, we are going to talk to the people who have been there so we can help others that might currently be there. Wherever there is.

Work week highlight

The concept of acceptable loss really hit home. This show is what I look forward to on Wednesdays.

Don’t waste your time

Annoying voice and sarcastic host filled with anger. It’s like she is yelling the whole time. Pass on this one. There are plenty of great podcasts out there; unfortunately this is not one of them. I’d give it less than one star if I could.

Also how is this getting a high rating 5/5 when clearly there are negative reviews? Ugh!

Worth a Listen

I’m not sure where all the hostility from the one-star reviewers is coming from. Ms. Danielle is an upbeat, enthusiastic, and friendly host. This podcast didn’t have the depth I was looking for and the production was a bit too polished for my taste, hence the 3 stars, but in no way do I think the hostility in these negative reviews is warranted. Makes me wonder if there’s something else going on with those reviewers that has nothing to do with the host’s character or the podcast’s content.
