Honor Eastly

Honor Eastly (@Honor_Eastly) is a writer, podcaster and professional feeler of feelings. At the 2019 Third Coast Conference, Honor will be co-present a Breakout Session with Joel Werner about turning her dark & funny life into a sound-rich, creative serialized story with feeling.

She is the co-founder of The Big Feels Club, and has three hit-podcasts to her name. Most recently, she partnered with the ABC to create the critically-acclaimed No Feeling Is Final podcast, about her own experiences of suicidality, which was named the #3 podcast of 2018 by The Atlantic. Her shows have been downloaded over half a million times, and have caused many awkward conversations with her family, and colleagues.

When she’s not making podcasts she works in mental health, trying to help make a more human response to distress. She is currently one of the expert advisors to the once-in-a-generation mental health reform opportunity, the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health system.


You know about reading between the lines, right? Well good sound design can make you dance between the lines. And when you’re talking about big, uncomfortable ideas — sound can be a super powerful tool to have on hand.
