RADIO.COM's I’m Listening broadcast is returning on Wednesday, September 23. For an evening filled with artist, athletes and individuals nationwide joining forces to showcase that talk has the power to save lives, during a special two hour event.
Leading up to this years broadcast, we’re chatting with artists and musicians who aren’t afraid to speak up, and use their platform and influence to share and have open and honest conversations.
FINNEAS spoke to RADIO.COM's Julia about how it’s been navigating through such an unknown time, not knowing what the future looks like. “On my best day I’m like finding ways to help people in need and sort of taking stock, on a personal level of all this time I have right now in my life.” FINNEAS revealed, and that he’s valuing his time and using it to do anything from making albums to something as trivial as hanging a picture on the wall.
And as for the worst days, FINNEAS disclosed that those typically consist of him “perusing through every vaccine article I can read about like when any of them will be ready and looking at like the fatality rates.” And while FINNEAS knows he’s not alone in doing this, his outlook remains hopeful, saying that “there will come a time where this is all over,” but knowing for right now that it’s not something he can control and dwelling on the negative isn’t worth it.
Now more than ever, it is so important for us to have open and honest conversations about mental health. In advance of the broadcast, we encourage you to share your story about your personal mental health journey, of which we will select a few to be shared as a part of this year's show. In addition, throughout the show, listeners will have a chance to call in and share personal stories, as well as speak to mental health professionals.
Join us on Wednesday, September 23 at 6PM for I’m Listening - an evening filled with support, compassion, and community - right here and on the RADIO.COM app.
