Do you know anyone who doesn’t feel overwhelmed right now?
Join Laura and weekly guests on the Future Tripping podcast.
New episodes start February 2022.
About the Show
We will have conversations about what to do in the face of our overwhelm and how to do it, and we will be guided by listeners’ questions.
Each week, Laura and a guest will discuss concrete strategies we can use to mitigate harm, cultivate our ability to bring our A-game to whatever we’re doing (or as close as we can get), and move beyond what can feel like permanent survival mode. Some weeks will be geared more towards adults, and others towards adolescents and anyone who loves, lives, or works with them. Together, we’ll focus on the merits of staying present, not missing out on today, and trying to avoid future tripping.
We hope that Future Tripping will offer listeners insight into what is currently overwhelming them and tactical skills for sustaining themselves and contributing, however much they’d like, to larger systemic and structural changes.
