Messy Situations: A clean-up crew of wellness experts


Messy Situations: A clean-up crew of wellness experts

Have You Heard? is where the Pod Bible team meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. While the Oh. My. Pod. section in the magazine gives a quick shout out to shows of that ilk, Have You Heard? aims to go deeper in an effort to spread awareness for shows that deserve more exposure!

Pride month is almost over, but before it is we wanted to speak to Kane Sarhan, one of the hosts of Messy Situations here to help with your wellness…

Who are you and what’s your podcast about?

My name is Kane Sarhan. I’m an entrepreneur, creative, husband, dog dad and messy human. I’m the cofounder of THE WELL, your one-stop-shop for wellness.

My podcast is Messy Situations, the Top 30 Self-Improvement show on the Apple Podcast charts. The podcast provides a radically new take on “self-help” by boldly embracing the messy sides of life: parenthood, menopause, romance, entrepreneurship and beyond. Produced by Lola Media, Messy Situations empowers people to exercise their shame by bravely revealing those unfiltered parts of their lives.

Each week, my co-host Michele Promaulayko (former Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief) and I reveal Messy Situations—big and small—submitted anonymously and through in-person guests, and then call in our Clean-Up Crew of wellness experts, mental-health pros, spiritual guides, energy healers, messy-life survivors and more to start mopping things up. We invite anyone who is willing to confess their own mess—even science says it’s good for the soul.

What was the first podcast you ever listened to?

My first podcast was Serial, kicking off a true obsession with murder and true crime podcasts.

Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?

I have been writing a book (coming soon) about my personal messy situations, and as I told my friends and family about the project, I started to realize I wasn’t the only mess in my life and, in fact, we all have messy situations. I wanted to create a platform for people to share their messes (without shame or judgment) so we could all learn and grow and find common ground.

Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?

So many. I love We Can Do Hard Things and The Happiness Lab.

Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?

I’d love to have Ellen on to discuss what really went down on her show.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?

Get the logistics together! Making a great show happen requires planning and prep, not just sitting down and showing up. I have also learned to really just enjoy myself as it makes for the most engaging and honest conversation.

Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?

Episode #5 My Biz Partner and BFF stole my husband
