Beyond Your Past, a podcast hosted by Matthew Pappas, CLC, MPNLP on Mental Health News Radio Network, aims to provide a platform for trauma survivors to heal and share their experiences.
The podcast grew out of Matthew’s blog, Surviving My Past. Himself a trauma survivor, Matthew decided to leverage previous podcasting knowhow from an NFL fan website into a weekly show documenting his personal battles and breakthroughs overcoming trauma. Beyond Your Past evolved into its current format of weekly interviews with other survivors of trauma and addiction, who share their work and recovery journeys.
Matthew said, “It’s a way for me to use my voice, literally, to share my story. Being able to speak your truth, to answer the tough questions, to have breakthroughs just by talking to a guest on the show, it’s all incredibly validating. It’s a shame-breaking way of healing and receiving support. When you get things out of your head, in a safe place, and share with others, you not only continue your healing but you help others as well. I help provide that safe place for survivors to share their story, and for clinicians, coaches, and advocates to share how their life’s work is helping others.
