Welcome to The Decoding Success Podcast's 177th Episode.
Today, we're joined by Drew Linsalata -- creator and host of The Anxious Truth, a slightly unorthodox anxiety podcast that’s been in full swing since 2014. With over 1,000,000 downloads, The Anxious Truth has spawned a large, vibrant, and engaged social media community of amazing humans supporting, inspiring, encouraging, and empowering each other to overcome anxiety and fear.
Having suffered from anxiety, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and depression several times over a 20 year period, Drew got it together once and for all in 2008. Since then life has been happy, productive, and “normal” (although we’d all be hard-pressed to define normal at times).
For the last 15 years, Drew has been active in the online anxiety community, working to use his experience and understanding to help those that are following down the path he’s traveled. His no-nonsense approach to these problems and willingness to provide direct, actionable advice even when it might not be easy to hear, has established him as a unique voice in the community.
In 2020, Drew published two books on anxiety and anxiety recovery. An Anxiety Story and The Anxious Truth have quickly become required reading for anyone suffering from anxiety and in need of education, instruction, inspiration, encouragement, and empowerment.
