Highly Un-relatable

Subscribed: 2Played: 8


Hi, I am Olympia, and for the past 30 years of my life, I thought I could never find a single person to relate to until I opened my big mouth on Instagram and began to share my life experiences with my followers, unique as I thought they were. It's not always easy talking about the tough stuff and the things we think to ourselves. People can be cruel and judgmental, so I decided to start a podcast where my listeners could feel like they can be open and comfortable with themselves with what they think and feel. Something magical happens when we relate to one another; we feel normal as shitty as that word is; it's the damn truth. Throughout the years, I have acquired a unique outlook on life that has helped me get through some tough days, and I'm going to be sharing my thought process with all of you. I want all of my listeners to feel like they aren't alone in this great big, fast-paced world. So join me on my podcast, where I will be talking about all of my life experiences and stigmatized topics that I feel need to be discussed. Some will be good, some bad, and also bringing guest speakers on the show to share their stories as well to help you figure out for yourself if you really are that highly un-relatable.
