Let Me Overthink About It

Let Me Overthink About It

By Sam Madore
A series of topics that occupy an anxious mind.

I, Sam Madore, am an overthinker extraordinaire. I take great pride in my ability to turn the smallest of things into a complex puzzle in my mind. And the thing is? I'm not alone in this... I just know it.

Please indulge me as I overthink my way through my life and this podcast with some of my pals and favourite people.

Let Me Overthink About It... Real Talk: Uncut (Part 1)
In my ninth episode, it's all me. No theme. Just me. Overthinking my thoughts... I recorded this one on October 4th with full intentions of releasing it one week ago. Then I got scared. So I let myself overthink it and push it off to the side. As someone who struggles with depression and anxiety – and crippling grief since I lost my mother in March of this year – it can be really challenging to "put myself out there" like this. But I was compelled to record it for a reason. So, here it is: Raw and Uncut (and still scared).  "Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes." — Maggie Kuhn Theme song produced, recorded, mixed, by John Mullane for LMOAI. Written by John Mullane.

Let Me Overthink About... Showing Up
In my second episode, I am joined by my pal Heather Laura Clarke as we discuss what it takes to "show up".

We can do hard things.  Heather Laura Clarke is an award-winning freelance journalist, columnist, blogger, and editor whose work regularly appears in many Canadian newspapers and magazines. She's on a mission to become a novelist, too.  "You are worthy of wanting something more." – Rachel Hollis
