Fame and Friends Podcast Network

Shower for the Soul is a community that shares stories about health, wellness and our mental wellness. Host Shane Fame Alexander dives deep into subjects as anxiety, depression and new ways to make our lives feel more balanced.

We're back and Shane's flying solo this week. We take a trip back to a year ago when this whole COVID thing started. Has anything REALLY changed? How's your mental health been and how has it differed from when we went into lockdown in March 2000? Shane also takes a trip down memory lane talking about the recent passing of one of his radio heroes, Dick Smyth. 


Shane wants you to join his team this year for the Defeat Depression Virtual Walk and Talk for Mental Health. Join and/or donate here. Shane will fill us in about this, too.
