Kelly O’Laughlin is a freelance writer, creator, and host of the Highly Sensitive Person Blog & podcast. She is also author of A Highly Sensitive Person’s Life: Stories & advice for those who experience the world intensely.
It’s been a while since there was a new podcast episode! In this episode, I give a brief update on what’s going on with the show!
A while ago, I received a listener request to do an episode about dealing with people staying at your house--houseguests. Here it is!
When I started this podcast, my #1 dream guest was Susan Cain. So, I'm very happy to bring this episode to you today. Susan's 2012 book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking was my first introduction to introversion. The book changed my life (and thousands of others worldwide) because it changed how I saw myself. It was through learning about introversion that I learned about high sensitivity; I wouldn't be typing this to you today without her book as the inception. More about Susan Cain: Susan is the co-founder of Quiet Revolution, a site that features advice and stories for introverts and extroverts alike on how to appreciate our quiet sides. She is the author of the bestsellers Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can’t Stop Talking, which has been translated into 40 languages and been on the New York Times bestseller list for over four years. Her record-smashing TED talk has been viewed over 15 million times. She is an honors graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law School. Some of the topics covered in this episode include: What it was like to be a Wall Street lawyer and an introvert If she's an HSP How Susan dealt with the huge popularity of her book and TED talk The difference between HSPs and introverts Her Quiet Leadership Institute The introvert backlash ....and more. Susan's books: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking  Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts (A guide for teens and kids) You can also find her on Twitter.

Today's episode features Andy Mort of the Gentle Rebel podcast (formerly known as the Sheep Dressed like Wolves podcast). We talk about what it's like to be a Highly Sensitive Person and a podcaster. (He interviewed me on his show recently, too: listen here!) Some of the topics covered in this episode include: receiving negative feedback, making money, and tips for people who want to start their own show. You can get in touch with Andy on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and find his music here. Looking for a Community for HSPs? Join The Haven! As mentioned in this episode, Andy's HSP community, The Haven, is open for registration from Nov. 4-10, 2016. The Haven is a private membership site completely dedicated to HSPs. There's two years of great content available--like high-quality videos, interviews, collaborative projects, and blog posts--which have been created specifically to help support, encourage, and inspire HSPs in a range of areas, and Andy's always coming out with new content, too. My favorite part might be the safe and supportive Facebook community that's exclusive to members. There is no obligation or commitment. It's just $1 to try it out for the first month and you can cancel anytime, so there's really no reason not to give it a try and see if it's for you!
