Always brilliant

Forever infromative and ceasingly honest. As a non academic and someone with only a personal interest in psychology and mental health I must commend these folks for coming out of the shadows of their universities and putting something out that is digestable to those of us that are less intellectually minded. Whether intentional or not, tis surely a strength of this podcast as well as their willingness to incorporate voices that are less heard and subjects that are on the pulse of the mental health world. Wish they did more!
