Hot topics, Name changes, and celebrity overdose.

We discuss the untimely death of Aaron Carter and the role of social media. Digging deeper, we discuss the impact social media can have on mental health disorders and addiction. What's the cost of trolling people's lives when they are in the midst of a high or crisis and doing nothing?

We all have a choice to do better, to be better, and to be more kind to others on social media. In the same way, an addict has a choice about whether or not to use it.

Addiction rates are at epidemic levels for women especially, and overdoses are killing people every day. Childhood trauma and the inability to develop coping skills usually lie at the bottom of all that. Join us as we go over that and more!

We believe when you share openly with someone about your own struggles, you create a safe space that gives them permission to share openly and honestly also, and that’s the most powerful catalyst to change and connection. We believe healing is a journey, not a destination. If you’re struggling, know you are not alone, and this, too, will pass.

We are changing the name of the show, and we need your help! Make sure to head over to the website and message us ideas for names or leave a voice message, and we'll mention it in upcoming episodes. While you're there, don't forget to subscribe to stay in the know of all the exciting new things we’ve got coming.
