THE ONLY ONE IN THE ROOM
The only one in the room
Hosted by me, Laura Cathcart Robbins, a writer and a recovery thriver and survivor. I found myself in an all too familiar position. On September 2018, I was the only black woman in the room at Brave Magic, a famed writer’s retreat. After it was over, I wrote about my ‘only one’ experience in The Huffington Post and comments started flooding into my DM from people from all races, ethnicities, creeds, and nationalities who had felt ‘othered.’
I interview a person about their ‘only one’ story each episode and address as many of those DM’s as possible. In this podcast you’ll hear raw, vulnerable, accounts from people who are like most of us. We are eager to connect. My hope is that The Only One In The Room will inspire a change of perspective in how we all see and hear each other’s stories. I hope to make you think twice before judging the person standing next to you at a party, in the pick-up line at school or in a crowded subway car. This is a podcast for anyone who has ever felt alone in a room full of people – which is to say, this podcast is for everyone.
