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;)
