At our February 5 salon, renowned therapist and popular podcast host Dr. Joy Harden Bradford helped us envision a podcast for the conversations we wish were happening, but aren’t (yet!). Through a series of prompts based on her award winning podcast, Therapy For Black Girls, we dug deep to shift our perspectives and claim our place in the world. Dr. Joy closed off the evening with a Q&A session, invited us to ask questions on what it takes to make a great podcast while receiving mental health and wellness tips!
The topic I wish I saw more people discussing is ________. Why?
Think: What are YOU interested in? What conversations are you interested in hearing/starting?
I find myself comparing myself to others most often when _______.
What are you afraid will happen if you’re perceived as not so nice?
