Must Listen.

As I've broadened my scope of different podcasts that I listen to, I'm always grateful that I've got The Broken Brain to come back to. An educational and insightful look at what powers us as humans - the brain - and its foibles and successes. This is a wonderful podcast hosted by the easy to listen to Dwight Hurst who manages to discuss and cover many of the different elements of the brain - mental illness, joy, sadness, anxiety, and more - and also discuss how to help people with mental health issues. This sounds heavy - and at times it can be - but thanks to Dwight's relatable discussions, it never becomes tiring. Highly Recommended.
