27: Brianna LaPaglia on Mental Health, Family Dynamics, and Career Path

Welcome to Episode 27 of The Madhappy Podcast. This week we are excited to welcome Brianna LaPaglia onto the show to learn more about her experiences with mental health and anxiety throughout childhood and rise in social media. We start off by getting into a conversation about Bri’s childhood experiences growing up in South Boston and why, at first, she chose not to talk about her past on her social media channels (5:08). Bri speaks about her first experiences with anxiety and depression (13:55) and shares more about her relationships with her family and how they affected her at a young age (23:03). Mason and Peiman talk about the importance of listening to yourself when you feel stuck (34:04) as Bri speaks to her social media journey and how her content has evolved since dropping out of college during the pandemic (38:59). We wrap up discussing the importance of taking time for yourself throughout everyday life (50:25) before learning what’s next for Bri (54:21). We’re excited to partner with CashApp on a new initiative to support your mental health. Every week, we’ll be giving out $200 to a handful of listeners with the hope that you can put this money towards something that can better your mental health.
