The Emotionally Driven Podcast
Emotionally Driven is a podcast started by me, Graciela Martinez. I believe that the most introspective thinking is done when we are alone in the car. Or at least I do. I am a big fan of taking the longer way home when I can, if it means I get to spend more time in the car just thinking. I thought about this and came up with the idea of the Emotionally Driven Podcast. A play on words, if you will.
I wanted to focus each episode on a thought that I had while driving. And then I wanted to talk about it with someone who I thought could bring more insight into that subject. Some thoughts/topics are friendship, heartbreak, self-love, mental health, dating, growing up, the list could go on and on. The topics focus on the experiences and emotions that humans encounter in their life, specifically in their 20’s. The 20’s can be a hard place to navigate and it can be confusing, so I wanted to create a place where others could learn about these times and know that they’re not alone in navigating it. That is where the “emotionally” part of the title comes in.
And because I like to have fun, I wanted to add glimpses of pop culture and humor. So, you’ll hear me talk about music, shows, and movies that remind me of something specific. I wanted to create a podcast that would make people feel seen, while also reminding them to have fun during this important time in life.
I hope you enjoy the podcast and the blogposts I write in combination with them. I hope you laugh and you cry. I hope you listen to it in your car sometimes. And I hope you become Emotionally Driven.
