Description

When you’re going through something hard, it’s easy to feel like nobody out there gets it. But we’re never as alone as we think we are. Every week on Help a Human Out, we’ll meet one person going through something hard...and get them practical help from a person who has been there. Guiding each episode with empathy and humor is host Miss Danielle, former host of a syndicated morning talk show and currently a special educator, mother and fiance.

Why Don't You Believe Us?

The Kids Are Not All Right
01:13:57

This is the story of Aria Joy Burch-Senser – a beautiful, talented and happy young girl who will be forever frozen at age 13. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for individuals 10-24. We don’t talk to our kids enough about mental health and suicide. They are issues shrouded by stigma, and not talking about them with the young people in our lives is a major contributing factor to the statistics. Ms. Danielle sits down with mom and social worker Brittani Senser to have a conversation about youth mental health and suicide.

In our final episode of Black Story Month, we asked our Black listeners, coworkers, friends and family to send in a voice memo answering three questions: 1. What is your favorite thing about Black culture? 2. If you had the chance, would you ever give up being Black? 3. What does Black excellence mean to you and how do you embody it? This special episode is a collection of stories from all over the country — including two little girls (who call Danielle mom) learning about their own Black girl magic.

Black Story Month: "You're Pretty for a Black Girl" with Tanisha Nichole
01:16:24

“Can I touch your hair?” “You don’t talk Black.” “You’re pretty for a Black girl.” These are all examples of microaggressions — nasty little comments that get said to Black women every single day and that add up to major trauma. Being a Black woman in modern America is anything but easy. This week, Ms. Danielle is joined by friend and radio personality Tanisha Nichole to talk about microaggressions, how you can recognize them, and how you can help stop them from causing harm.

How Do I Blend My Family
00:43:34

What makes a family? It’s not just one mom, one dad, 2.5 kids and miscellaneous pets. And when it comes to blending families, you’re also blending their own experiences, insecurities and personalities. It’s not easy, and parents don’t always have the answers! So we asked the (now grown-up) baby of a big, blended family to help us out.

How Do I Talk to My Partner About Sex? with Shaun Galanos
00:59:58

We’re going to have “the talk” — except this time, it’s the full version. We know about the birds and the bees, but when it comes to talking about what we want (and need) in the bedroom, a lot of us avoid that conversation. But you know who doesn’t? A love coach. Shaun Galanos is host of “The Love Drive,” a popular podcast about love, sex and authenticity. He also provides sessions and coaching on various aspects of love and life. This week, Shaun teaches us how to have an open and honest conversation about sex and intimacy with our partners.

Introducing Help A Human Out
00:02:37

No matter what you’re going through -- a divorce, a bankruptcy -- there is someone who has walked your path, and we’re going to find them so they can help light your own way through. 


That’s what this podcast is all about. Every episode, we’ll meet a person going through something nobody in their real life can relate to:


On Help A Human Out, our job is to find someone who has been there, so nobody has to feel alone in their struggle. 


We’re taking difficult, confusing or isolating situations and normalizing them...one person, one problem, one podcast episode at a time. Everything that feels like uncharted territory to YOU is terrain someone else has walked before. Whatever you’re going through, we are going to talk to the people who have been there so we can help others that might currently be there. Wherever there is.
