Hi, Stuff Mom Never Told You fans! Listen to The Loudest Girl in the World hosted by Lauren Ober!

Don't just take our word for it, check out the trailer to decide for yourself!   About The Loudest Girl in the World: For years, Lauren Ober wasn’t all that jazzed about herself. She was always getting in trouble, she had weird sensory issues and her anxiety felt off the charts. Plus, socially she kind of sucked. At 42, life for Lauren just seemed harder than it should have been. And then, in the middle of a global pandemic and a constitutional crisis, she discovered why — she was autistic. The Loudest Girl in the World is the story of Lauren’s journey to understand what the hell it means to be on the autism spectrum and how to live life as a newly diagnosed autistic person. This podcast is about finding yourself broken in a pretty dark place and emerging from that place a mostly glued-back-together person.   Listen to The Loudest Girl in the World on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts!  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Introducing: Dominant Stories with Jess Weiner

Hi, Stuff Mom Never Told You fans! We're excited for the launch of the Dominant Stories podcast hosted by culture expert Jess Weiner. It's a brand new show from Shondaland and iHeartRadio and we think you'll enjoy it too. Don't just take our word for it, though. Check out the trailer and decide for yourself! About the podcast: Dominant Stories is a conversation series that reclaims and rewrites the stories we’ve been told about our bodies, our beauty, our creativity, and our identities. For example, does your inner monologue sound like: “I’m not good enough, pretty enough or thin enough”? How about: “I can’t do that” or “I’m not worthy”? These are what Cultural Expert and host Jess Weiner calls our Dominant Stories - the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves (whether they are true or not). This show has stemmed from Jess’ personal and professional mission to help people challenge the external (and internal) voices that are holding them back from living the life they desire and deserve. Through witty, curious, and hopeful conversations with celebrated guests, we’ll unpack, challenge, and change these Dominant Stories. Listen and subscribe to Dominant Stories with Jess Weiner on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts! Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
