A quick intro from Helena
Hello, everyone! I’m so excited to be able to host soberIRL in Portland. There are so many great places to hike and explore, especially when the world opens up again. I love eating good (gluten-free) food, tasting scrumptious spirit-free cocktails and living a juicy, delicious alcohol-free life.
I love to have a few shows going at once… something deep, something funny, and something creative. I also love to take in a documentary or investigative journalism podcast. I’m excited to plan some exciting outings around Portland, but still planning to do some of them over Zoom to make sure those who can’t get out of the house for whatever reason can still join in the party.
I recently started a podcast called SISU Journey: Science and Stories of Resilience. Check it out anywhere you get podcasts.
Can’t wait to kick it with you!
