The Story Behind The Longer Road
Mattia was looking for a podcast about how having multiple intersectional identities can feel exhausting. And in particular that feeling of "being behind," which they felt because they had to spend most of their 20s dealing with mental and physical health.
And beyond that, they wanted to invite guests who could be their full, complex selves with all of their interests and passions. While our healing journey may feel long, we're also fascinating and multi-faceted!
Every guest has multiple identities that are often marginalized. And we lead with the question, "What are you passionate about right now?" We talk about healing, and about joy and flourishing. We hope that hearing stories from someone like you will provide hope as well as actionable tips.
Mattia is nonbinary trans (they/them pronouns), queer, disabled, autistic, ADHD, and grew up in abuse/neglect/poverty. Through their own healing journey they also became a certified life coach and hypnotherapist, which you can read more about here.
