Jann is a super dorky 40 something (seriously, she can never remember how old she is), living in a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada with her wife. She loves all things tea, especially antique tea ware and patents. She’s not a jam jar, but here are some labels that she easily slaps onto herself: happily introverted, her anxiety has anxiety, dances freely, lives with fibromylagia, scorpio, cat lover, Xennial, over-thinker, Apple fan-girl and an INFJ-T.
She loves designing stickers, curating antique teaware boxes, and of course creating YouTube videos. Most of all, she loves connecting with kind people across the globe.

Nina Purewal faced an unexpected childhood tragedy, which inspired her mindfulness and meditation journey over twenty years ago. After climbing the corporate ladder for nearly a decade, she took a sabbatical and moved to California to unplug and live in an ashram for a year. It’s been her greatest passion to help others find happiness through adversity, by leaning into ancient wisdom. With that, she founded Pure Minds, a social enterprise that conducts mindfulness and meditation workshops and is the co-author of the International Bestseller, Let That Sh*t Go.

A Series of Topics That Occupy My Anxious Mind.
I'm Sam Madore, an overthinker extraordinaire.✨
As host of this podcast – and as someone who has lived with anxiety and depression most of my life – I want to normalize the topics and conversations that an overthinking mind can bring to light.
Because I'm sure I can't be alone in this;)
Big thanks to my pal and stellar music producer, mixer, composer John Mullane of In-Flight Safety, for providing MY VERY OWN THEME MUSIC (from episode three on). Theme song produced, recorded, mixed, by John Mullane for LMOAI. Written by John Mullane.
