One day I got a call from my neighbor and friend Maria Smirnioti telling me that she would like to share her mental health journey that is centered around her experiences of living with depression on Salt. We came together and started talking openly. The result is a very honest, raw and compassionate conversation with Maria describing, how she has broken her chain, through speaking her truth and how sharing her story has given others permission to do the same.
You will hear us talking about living with depression, being conditioned in shame, motherhood and depression, medication, compassion and liberation and how Maria is today. Thank you Maria

At Salt the Podcast my guests and I contest and deconstruct narratives, and passionately recreate with the aim to change systems and perceptions. We want to elevate a generation that is feminist, antiracist and empathetic. Our conversations flow into each other and leave room for the unexpected. Salt is love, community, solidarity, healing, creating. It is intersectional, full of stories, movement and change. It insists, evolves and transforms. It is a commitment.
