The Someone To Tell It To Podcast

Health & Wellness Podcasts >

We started Someone To Tell It To in 2012, and all along, our philosophy has been to listen. Because our mission is to "cultivate meaningful connections through compassionate listening and train others to do the same," we thought it might be best to highlight both aspects—listening and training—in a podcast. Both listening and training continue to catalyze this global listening movement where Someone's voice is being heard, Someone is being reminded that they matter, and Someone doesn't need to feel alone in whatever they are facing in life. We will be posting two episodes each month to start. One will highlight training, because we can all benefit from learning how to become better listeners. The second will highlight how listening has played a vital role in an individual’s journey. We are so excited to share these rich conversations with you. Please subscribe to hear each new episode as soon as it's released!

One Veteran's Story: Reaching beyond the myth and nostalgia of World War II

3/26/2019
More
As much as we may have liked to ignore the effects of that war on soldiers, the signs could not be dismissed and, decades later, the hidden anguish can still remain. Before it’s too late, we want to reach beyond the myth and nostalgia of World War II and shine a light on what Tim Madigan states - no matter the war, it means “death, disfigurement, and horrors no human heart is equipped to bear.” For so many veterans, it was a real relief to learn about the realities of PTSD. Far too many had...

"You are going to need to tell this story much longer than anyone is going to want to listen"

2/12/2019
More
We’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to call the people we listen to. Are they clients? Friends? Storytellers? Nothing quite fit. We wanted a name that represented the type of relationship we try to build and the way we value those we listen to, but we struggled to find a single word that could accomplish exactly what we needed. In the end, we were surprised to find the answer staring right at us. Someone. Someone with a story to share. Someone who needs a friend. Someone who...

To get us started, we decided to highlight STTIT’s First Annual Gathering (https://youtu.be/CmxkBlEgpVU) speaker, our dear friend, author, and speaker, Tim Madigan. You can learn more about Tim in this blog post about his involvement, perception, and hopes for STTIT. You’ll also learn how his book influenced us (so much so that we got matching tattoos in Fred Rogers handwriting… which you will hear about the podcast). “Take 45 seconds and think of someone in your life who you could tell...
