did we just become best friends?

i have been listening to self helpless for years, and it truly feels like delanie and kelsey are those girlfriends that are always there for you. they share the perfect balance of practical tips and life advice mixed in with their natural comedic relief, and no matter the episode title i’m always excited to listen. i was lucky enough to talk about business in a call with delanie, as well as buy tickets to one of kelsey’s upcoming shows. thank you both for being so open with your listeners and never toning it down. keep being you!

It’s fallen off

The early episodes were awesome, funny, and relatable. Now not so much. If they don’t have a guest it feels like they just keep making lists that are very similar to the previous lists. The advice also comes from a very privileged point of view that may not be very helpful to most people. For example I remember them saying to pay for your car in full or with cash…uh what? I miss the humor Taylor brought now it’s just one privileged white Chick talking about jobs and one privileged white Chuck talking about her boyfriend. And they both love to make lists. Listen to the first couple years then pass.

Both hilarious and informative

What an incredible podcast! I recently had the chance to meet Kelsey Cook in Boston and she truly is so down to earth. I initially found the Self Helpless podcast when I was looking to find out more information on OCD (came from the Middle of Somewhere podcast) and the rest is history. Still hoping for Delanie to get back into standup too!!
