In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview Sophia Simon-Bashall of the hurricane pod. 

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview Sophia Simon-Bashall of the hurricane pod. She shares her story of living with mental illness and how her podcast creates a community for others living the same life. Sophia is fabulous for many reasons, but what I love in particular is her mission to show that you can survive and thrive and cry with mental illness and there doesn’t need to be a heartwarming story about you beating it. The story can be that you’re living.

This is a great episode for everyone. Period, the end.

  • About Sophia
  • Why Sophia loves music and how it helps her

  • Why it’s important to tell the stories of people with mental illness who are living their lives
