Let's talk, people

Hi, I’m Hannah. And this is a podcast about my messy musings as a trained counsellor. Each episode I take you with me as I think-feel out loud and try to make sense of the world around me.


It’s brave to be afraid
May 25 • 8 min
In case you thought the opposite. In case you think that people who are brave don’t get scared or feel fear. Because they do—lots. They just know how to Mr. Miyagi their way through it.
I don’t really know where I’m from. You?
May 21 • 9 min
Born in London, England. Grew up in Ontario, Canada. My parents and grandparents are from East Africa. But if I never told you, you’d never know—because I don’t look or sound like any of the above.
Your definition is too narrow
May 18 • 12 min
The time I broke up with my now-husband. And how that single break up conversation pointed me to a box I had carefully made for myself—-a definition, that I was suffocating inside of.
A work in process
May 14 • 12 min
What is your personal process for making and doing things? Sometimes I am so head down in the muck of mine that I forget I’m in one. And that it will end. But also it starts up again on auto-repeat, if I’m not careful.
So yeah, I have a safe word
May 11 • 12 min
Husband says I used a bunch of safe words in this episode alone. How rude. But also, he’s right. I’m a work in progress, people. How many did you count?
I’m actually a full time actress
May 4 • 10 min
Some people speak two languages. I speak in two accents. And I’ve spent most of my life hiding one from the other.
Someone tell me the rules, please
Apr 27 • 12 min
This episode I talk about rules. Invisible rules. The kind that make us give (unwarranted) side eye to “that guy over there” who is chewing way too loud, or that bully us into laughing at a joke we definitely do not think is funny but everyone else is…
The one about #StayHome
Apr 20 • 13 min
#StayHome is hard. Not just because I thought I had Corona and freaked out. But also because staying home means no distractions. No escape, really. It’s down to me and the mini horror series in my head I call my thoughts.
