Feelin Weird is a podcast with the intention to:
Who am I?
Hi, I'm Kye--err--I'm "the healing-weirdo-artist currently and formerly known as Kye Plant"! I make podcasts, visual art, & music, I also hold space for people in a relational-healing capacity. I identify as genderfluid, queer and autistic. I spent most of my life trying to be "normal" (does that exist??) only to find out that I will never be normal, I AM, at my core, a god-damned weirdo--HALLELUJAH!
Holy shit, I've struggled so hard in life. I'm in my mid 30's and LOVING it now but I spent most of my life trying to erase myself, fixated on self-hatred and punishment. I didn't believe I deserved love. I was previously diagnosed with BPD, General Anxiety Disorder, Major Depression (though I don't identify with DSM diagnoses anymore). I've spent time in psych wards; I've tried to kill myself multiple times. I've struggled with addiction and disordered eating (binge/purge). I felt so fucking confused about what my sexuality or gender identity is. It's been A LOT!
I hit rock bottom (a few times) and since then I have found DEEP HEALING. I have found my inner strength, confidence, and beauty. I now have a powerful understanding of my emotions, my parts, and my inner world. I spent my life thinking I was an insignificant waste-of-space, now I see that I am a powerful, majestic gentle-giant!
Why Do I Make This Podcast?
I started Feelin Weird as a lily-pad of safety, relief and comfort from a world that can feel VERY scary (for myself and for others). It started as a mental-health podcast, now I consider it "Healing for Weirdos" (a place of love, silliness, and honesty which fosters non-hierarchical, consensual healing through nurturing and building of relationships with the inner landscape).
Each episode, I speak with someone about THEIR experience: what it FEELS like to be them. We talk about things they may or may not have ever really said out loud.
In hearing it, it creates connection and healing--a sense that "I'm not alone; I'm not as bad/gross/shitty as I thought I was AND I'm uniquely weird/beautiful because I'm ME (and nobody else has had my exact experiences)."
Feelin Weird is a celebration of LIFE.
It's a celebration of WEIRD.
It's a celebration of DIVERSITY.
It's a celebration of CONNECTION.
It's a place to unmask and be AUTHENTICALLY YOU!
From the bottom of my rainbow heart to yours, I hope you can feel some love in the world today.
Keep bein weird, ya goddamned weirdo;
LONG LIVE THE WEIRDOS!
