Welcome to the podcast! 'What happened to you?' is dedicated to normalizing conversations about trauma using humor.
My name is Sebastian and I do stand-up comedy about being molested as a kid. Laughing about my experience allowed me to begin processing and healing from what happened to me. Humor is an amazing gateway into deeper conversations and emotions.
From child molestation to cancer to double parental suicide, talking about difficult topics in a lighthearted way makes them easier to deal with.

Helped me beyond thank you

Hit in a part of me that I needed so badly as a victim. To hear the humor the relief. And the also real understanding.

RaymonBenjamin ,

Needed this!

As a rape victim, it’s hard to open up. I don’t see many representation of myself. People don’t like to talk about rape, and due to its “negative connotations” people try to sweep it under the rug. I went into nursing and I’m currently applying to nursing school and I realized being raped has helped me be able to empathize with my patients and be able to help them more then my counterparts.

I’m glad to see others can turn a terrible moment in their lives, into connection and bring ability to help people!

Much love!

Fabrício Fettuccine ,

Sebastin you’re a great host!

You’re an amazing host by making people feel relaxed and able to open up to you. Great conversational flow!
