Described by fans as "an unfiltered thera-brunch with your best friends," where we can all have "light conversations about heavy sh*t," The Self-Helpless Podcast candidly explores the highs, lows, and gray areas of all things personal growth, including how we can integrate everyday activism into our lives. Enjoy special guests — including authors, health professionals, a variety of public figures, and subscribers who courageously share their stories in order to help others. Hosted by comedy writer, activist, vegan lady, and someone deemed by listeners as having "BSE" (big sister energy), Delanie Fischer. 

Self-Helpless is an independently produced podcast that has been bootstrapped since day one. The show's acquired millions of downloads, has been featured on Conan and The Tonight Show, and frequents the top Apple Podcast and Spotify charts. Past guests include Tan France, Michael Buble,' Whitney Cummings, Pete Holmes, Dr. Ramani, Ed Winters, Gad Elmaleh, Kati Morton, Preacher Lawson, Brian Regan, Jessamyn Stanley, Mike Birbiglia, Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachel Ricketts, Nikki Glaser, Sonya Renee Taylor, and lots more wonderful people offering up their perspective and insights. 

"Helpsters" (what fans call themselves) are the heart of the show. Their content and suggestions are regularly incorporated into episodes and offerings, and you can submit quotes, episode topics, personal stories, shout outs, and more, that get featured on the podcast, by joining The Self-Helpless Patreon Community (100% of proceeds go directly to operating expenses). 

The mission of Self-Helpless is to provide laughter, comfort, and inspiration for anyone who needs a friend, some motivation to create positive shifts in their life, and wants some fun, practical tips along the way. Let's connect and make the most of whatever the heck we're all doing here, eh? 


New episodes every week!
