The Joyful Hour

The Joyful Hour

We bring you wellness and personal development insight and information along with empowering and inspiring stories of people who are living their truth. The information is compelling and cutting edge, and the stories are meaningful and authentic. The threads that run through our episodes are healing, purpose and authentic self-expression. According to neuroscience, joy is our natural emotional state. Meaning that being in a state of joy — having a deep sense of well-being and peace — virtually all the time, is not only possible — it is actually how we are designed!!! Yet we struggle day to day, feeling stressed, anxious, fearful, overwhelmed or depressed instead. There are many inspirational resources out there, but it can be difficult to translate those messages into reality in our own day-to-day lives. And so we created The Joyful Hour Podcast to help you learn easy ways to allow your natural state of peace and joy to bubble up more often, to help you build your “joy” muscle.💫 Host Bianca Erickson is Miami's Personal Development + Wellness Expert whose big heart 💗 and background in Psychology, Public Health Research (Epidemiology), charitable work, Neuroscience, Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence inform the enlightening conversations. Welcome!!! We are excited to have you join us on this journey back to joy! 🤩

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
