    GUEST: Mental Health & Wellbeing During COVID-19... Dr Izzy Smith.

    GUEST: Mental Health & Wellbeing During COVID-19... Dr Izzy Smith.

    With the world engulfed in the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we thought it would be appropriate to talk to a Doctor who is on the frontline of it all. Dr Izzy Smith is also a mental health advocate, Movember ambassador, and most importantly, she is down-to-earth, caring and passionate.

    Hugo talks to Dr Smith about what it is like being on the frontline, some ways to stay mentally healthy, and why it's more important than ever that we remain socially and emotionally connected. We all need a little extra support during these times, so let's be kind, stay connected, and check in with each other.

    GUEST: One of the Great Sporting Comebacks...Alex Johnson's Story.

    GUEST: One of the Great Sporting Comebacks...Alex Johnson's Story.

    With the AFL Grand Final this weekend, we thought it would be appropriate to interview an AFL Premiership player, and someone who has had to overcome significant adversity. Hugo was fortunate enough to sit down with Alex Johnson (former AFL player for the Sydney Swans) to talk about the highs and lows of his AFL career. Alex has one of the great sporting comebacks, but it's what happens after this which is truly devastating. Football can be a cruel game at times...

    Alex's resilience, determination, and positive outlook is simply inspiring, and Sydney Swans Premiership Coach, John Longmire, had this to say: "Alex's perseverance and strength is among the best I've seen in the game and it was a real credit to him that he was able to fight his way back to playing after so many setbacks."

    From first cancer diagnosis to post remission complexities.

    This week on the show we have a more broad Q&A episode! Over the course of the past few months we have had a bunch of different questions come through our social media channels, so we figured it was about time we answered some on air!

    We'll tackle everything from first diagnosis to post remission complexities, hope you enjoy! We'll do another one of these in a few months so if you have a question of your own that you'd like answered, don't ever hesitate to send it through and hopefully we can get to it next time around :)

    GUEST: The Loss of a Child to Suicide... Maria's Story.

    This week on the podcast, Hugo sat down with Maria, an incredibly strong women who lost her son, Peter, to suicide at just 22yo. Peter was also one of Hugo's best mates, and Maria and Hugo now share a very special bond. Although there are moments in this episode that are quite emotional, there are also some very important conversations surrounding mental health.

    Maria discusses what it is like as a mother to lose a child, what she has learnt about grieving, why suicide is not the answer, and why she started the White Bear Foundation.

So good!!

I stumbled upon this podcast and I’m so grateful that I did. I’ve recently had my mum diagnosed with bowel cancer and I’ve learnt so much from the 2 hosts who are both going through the same thing. So inspiring and I definitely recommend to everyone!

Love the podcast guys, being a cancer patient myself I can sit back listen and relate to a lot of the episodes. It has helped me through the tough times knowing I’m not alone through my journey
