In January 2018, I’m launching a new podcast:

YOU, ME, EMPATHY: Sharing Our Mental Health Stories.

This podcast is a life-long goal of mine. It’s something I’ve been working toward, both consciously and subconsciously, my whole adult life—emotionally, creatively, mentally.

You, Me, Empathy will be a place to share our stories. A place to talk openly, without judgment. A safe space to dig into our struggles. A place to relate, find meaning in our individual experiences, and to help others who listen to relate and find solemnity in our voices.

It will be a community of feelers and seekers and heart-on-our-sleevers. A community of people who want to fight, in whatever ways we can muster, against the tyranny of stigma in mental health. A community of explorers, facing our struggles together as we head face-first into this bright and overwhelming pale blue dot.

And in January, You, Me, Empathy will launch! (Giddy Footloose dance.)

If all if this sounds like your jam (marmalade or otherwise), and you’d like to share your story with me on the show, or contribute in some way, or just want to talk, email me at YouMeEmpathy[at]gmail[dot]com.

As I said, I really want to create a passionate, heartfelt community of folks who care unabashedly and deeply about mental health. If that’s you, please let me know by emailing me at YouMeEmpathy[at]gmail[dot]com

Thanks for reading. Thanks for being a part of the You, Me, Empathy community!

Hugs forever until we die,


Hi. It’s me. I like The Iron Giant. Also, I’m a heart-on-my-sleever. I love you!
