Ironically Serious

Ironically Serious offers an unfiltered take on up-leveling life in business, relationships, motherhood, friendships, health/wellness, and self-care. After a dramatic life pivot, Taylor Torres pulverized society's expectations and started a podcast to document it along the way. Throwing a cold glass of water into the face of hardship, Taylor put a modern twist on confidence and what it means to have earned it. In the spirit of resilience, we relish in personal empowerment and the hard shit that makes us who we are. We're here for the relevant, raw conversations that promote transformation while at your lowest and showing shame the door. Let your hair down and lean in—all are welcome here.
