Engaging

Essential, entertaining, engaging - love love love this podcast. I’ve arrived late so I’m picking all the eps about my issues (lots) - but eventually I’ll listen to all. James is fantastic at asking pertinent questions and making links to applicable contexts from the Prof’s knowledge and advice.

Love it

These two guys are a fabulous combination. The professor is so knowledgeable and down to earth, James is an engaging fellow host. I’m loving this podcast. Can you please cover borderline personality disorder, bipolar 1 and 2 and do more on ptsd? Also, something on inter -generational trauma? Thank you.
