Radical Advice was a weekly live talk show on San Francisco's award-winning internet community radio station, Best Frequencies Forever. Each week I'd bring in a guest (therapists, activists, artists) for conversations about the intersection of psychotherapy, personal growth, and activism.
Listeners submitted questions anonymously on the website which we used to discuss the big issues impacting us collectively and how these impacts play out in our personal lives as well–from racism, to sexual assault, to family dynamics and personal traumas.
I love this mostly unscripted, off the cuff format but I also love editing so in March 2018 I began releasing "Radical Shorts" on my podcast A Therapist Walks Into a Bar in which I mined some gold from Radical Advice and edited it down to shorter pieces. You can find those pieces below.
You can listen to past broadcasts in the archives or in your favorite podcast listening place.
What Listeners Have Said:
"I love your voice. It’s like being wrapped in a blanket of warmth and comfort. Such a gift. Your compassion, empathy, humor, laughter, commitment, and discourse often feel like the only things positive in the world..."
"I really love your shows and love how many barriers you destroy every week. You’ve really shifted my perspective on a lot of things and I really enjoy being on this journey with you and all your guests."
"I have had a real hard time this year. I have found a lot of solace in this show. I am so grateful for the bravery of all the participants to share hard parts of life. I’m very grateful for you and this show. Your soothing demeanor and unconditional support is incredibly beautiful. I am always moved by your love and empathy."
