TAP 093 - Sean Croxton on Anxiety, Paradigm Shifts & Being Unapologetically You

Summary:

In this episode I speak to Sean Croxton about his experience with anxiety. We also get into a discussion around mindset, shifting the paradigm and being polarizing amongst other things

Seans Bio (written by Sean):

I am SUCH a nerd.

I like to hang around my house and read books. In fact, I order them much faster than I can consume them. Thanks, Amazon…

I happened to like reading so much that I thought it would be a good idea to start interviewing the authors. That’s when I launched my first podcast, Underground Wellness Radio, way back in 2008, when no one really knew what a podcast was.

Oh, wait. The podcast came second. In 2007, I launched a YouTube channel about health. Basically, I took really complicated matters of health and made them easy for my viewers to understand. It was an instant hit. Probably, in part, because there weren’t many health channels on YouTube back then. But also because I brought some “edu-tainment” to a space dominated by jargon the average person couldn’t quite understand.

Anyway, back to the podcast. Underground Wellness Radio ran for 7 years, with 348 episodes about all things real food and functional medicine, with a sprinkle of personal development on the side.

In late 2015, I decided to close up shop at Underground Wellness. It was time for something new — to turn things upside down, to talk and write about personal development with a sprinkle of health on the side.

At the time of this writing, my new podcast, The Sessions with Sean Croxton, has just debuted. Back to the beginning. I’m excited for what’s to come.
