Welcome to Episode 55 of The Madhappy Podcast. This week we are excited to welcome the singer and internet personality Jacob Sartorius onto the show to learn about his experiences growing up on the internet and how he has worked to support his mental health through the ebbs and flows of his childhood and career. 

We kick off the episode with Jacob and Mason talking about adoption and their parental relationships (8:12). Jacob opens up about his experiences being bullied in school and online as he started gaining an audience on platforms like Vine and Musical.ly (11:37).

Peiman and Jacob connect about their experiences using the Wim Hof method, which involves breath work and cold showers (25:24), before we wrap up the episode by learning more about Jacob’s goals, on both a personal and professional level, for the future (32:05).
