Hi, I’m Alyssa Patmos and I’m endlessly curious about how to human. In a world that discourages talking about the taboo, I bought a microphone. As Mister Rogers said, “Anything human is mentionable and anything mentionable is manageable.” I invite you to join me as we journey through the mess, the magic, and the mania in between because what we can talk about we can manage. This honest conversation extravaganza includes free-flowing conversations and high doses of vulnerability to remind you that you aren’t alone. No topic is off limits. Episodes are designed to leave you smarter (aka more self-aware) than when you came.
