This podcast aims to make you know less.. Yes, less. I believe it is our perilous grip on what we “think” we know that causes most of our anxieties. Mental Health conversations are becoming mainstream and I am here to stoke your curiosity with interviews and stories surrounding this area of life.
Join me on solo and interview episodes as I aim to crack the code on the how and why we think and feel the way that we do.
The Dark Side of Comedy - Jojo White
There have been studies trying to quantify the psychology of comics and better understand what motivates them to do what they do and what gives them their special talents. Famous comics such as Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, and Ellen Degeneres are often referred to when talking about this special kind of intelligence.
I sat down with my Comedian friend, Jojo White to talk about the connection between Comedy and Depression.
PTSD and Post Traumatic Growth - Taryn Greene

The Stories We Tell Ourselves - Dawn Fraser
From Movies, Commercials, Your Family and Friends; they're all telling you stories about themselves to either convince you of an idea or to control your world.
We're also doing this to ourselves, all, the, time.
We unpack the idea of story, how and why we tell ourselves the stories we do, and what we can do to tell ourselves better, more empowering stories.

To Be or Not to Be a Victim - Sukdev Benning
Imagine a life where everyone is against you, including yourself. Often times we experience events (trauma) or relationships that train our mind to blame the outside world instead of taking accountability for ourselves.
Often times this happens as the result of losing your power. Your sense of self-perception and choice to set boundaries and make a new start.

Customer ReviewsSee All
I first came across My Niche is Human podcast when a common IG friend of Steven and myself shared one of Steven IG stories that really spoke to me. I then went to Steven’s IG and noticed that he had a podcast about mental health and thought I should check it out being that it is something that resonates deeply with me and I could not be more pleased with my decision to give it a listen and subscribing. The way Steven is able to share so candidly about his own struggles with mental health and his triumphs of coming to self realization while learning to deal with issues when they arise in a positive and productive manner have been an extreme encouragement to me and helped me feel more at ease when sharing my own story with others in my circle. Not only is the subject matter of the podcast great but Steven’s sincerity with his guest is refreshing and his to ability to interview people is very impressive as well. Looking forward to hearing more as more podcast are released.
How to talk about your mental health
It was very exciting for me to listen to these two brilliant people talk about their own personal experiences with mental health issues in every day ordinary language. I grew up in the very negative stigma of bi-polar and alcoholism. It shaped my life. I am in the process of unlearning all that negative thinking and reframing every memory I can summon with a new perspective. Thank you Steven and Mallory for “normalizing” the whole realm of mental health. We are witnessing evolution in process. Claudette
