ACT in Context is freely available to anyone, and its episodes will take listeners on a journey from the history and development of ACT through its clinical application and the future of the work. This podcast will primarily focus on ACT, but it will often touch upon several related issues such as behavioral principles, the underlying theory of language
(Relational Frame Theory) and philosophy of science. We hope that informal learners, potential consumers, researchers and clinicians alike find it useful.

Great introduction to ACT
I am loving the podcast but finding it increasingly frustrating the way John interrupts Jen and others! Please try and be mindful of this as it’s obvious and very annoying for the listener.
I've really enjoyed listening to your podcast. Both presenters are well informed in psychology and this has been a really nice way to get an in-depth look into ACT.
One small thing that is a bit of a time waster and unessecary is John's tendency to make statements and then ask "am I right?" and "is that correct?", awkward pause, waits for the person to confirm. This basic counselling technique that has no place in a podcast, you're trying to create a flow, and as someone who claims to have done a lot of podcasting I'm suprised you still do this.
Thanks for all the help!
A great series on ACT
Having experienced ACT as a client, the series has been a very accessible way to expand on what I learned and understand the principles to a depth not possible within the time limits of therapy.
