The global podcast sensation Do You F*cking Mind? has joined LiSTNR, it was announced today.
Hosted by Alexis Fernandez, the podcast is a mixture of neuroscience, psychology and tough love and with its straight talking and frank language, doesn’t hold back when making mental health information accessible.
Best-selling author of Be Bold and The Neuroscience of Self-Love, Fernandez launched the podcast whilst completing her Masters degree in neuroscience. From the beginning the podcast has been laser focused on helping listeners improve their relationships with themselves, or as Fernandez explains it “delivering mindset hacks for a badass life.”
Episodes are released twice weekly, on Mondays and Fridays, and are a fusion of science, social psychology, listener questions and guest interviews. Discussions cover emotions, relationships and dilemmas, with Fernandez weaving in neuroscience to help listeners understand how it impacts their lives. Past topics have asked and answered questions such as: How do you die of water poisoning? What does cocaine do to your brain? and can you survive with half a brain?
Fernandez said: “I started this podcast in my Sydney bedroom three years ago and am so excited to be levelling up with LiSTNR. When the podcast began, I was halfway through my Masters degree in neuroscience, and so I was keen to share what I was learning and to connect with people that wanted to work on themselves. No matter what episode you listen to, each one aligns with my ‘why’ for podcasting – to help people improve their relationship with themselves.
“There’s a lot of health and wellness podcasts that profile people but leave you feeling dog sh*t and helpless afterwards. We’re the opposite of that. In every episode I share actionable tools that anyone can put into practice to change their f*cking life!”
LiSTNR Original Podcasts head of entertainment and culture, Sam Cavanagh, said: “Alexis is a contemporary voice in the wellness space and has attracted a legion of fans with her content that is both entertaining and evidence based. We’re looking forward to supporting Alexis build her audience and continuing to create this hit podcast.”
