Deeply Human

Life can be deeply isolating when we are not understood. As someone with a chronic illness, I didn’t find emotional peace until I found others, proxies, to help me process my experience. This podcast taps into that vulnerability we all feel at one time or another, and gives us a model of healing…the right questions to ask of others and of ourselves. High recommend!

My new favorite listen

Love the idea of the show, and the first few episodes are incredibly good. I can tell that this is going to be one of those few pods I listen to the second a new episode drops. So excited to have this is my ears and can’t wait for the next episode.

Thanks for exploring this topic. I got fired from a role early on in my career and it was devastating. The worse part is that most people around you can’t understand all the emotions that come up, mostly of grief and deep loss of identity.

Thank you Yowei. This podcast was raw and beautiful. So many of us are experiencing layoffs and it is more valuable than one realizes to know we aren’t alone.

She put a voice to the problem with our generation

As a person who has been laid off many time, it was immensely helpful to hear other’s deepest inner thoughts abt a problem that plague our generation!!!

So deeply human

This show really captures something so emotional, so deeply human. I started listening on a whim and I absolutely devoured the first 3 episodes back to back. I got laid off in 2009 and I always assumed I was weird for much it destroyed me. This show puts so much in perspective and I think even healed a little part of me from long ago. I found this show so cathartic, so helpful in peeling back the layers of this world we live in. Thank you! Can’t wait to hear more!
