    S2 - Ep.12 - Alex Galbally - Body Dysmorphia & Anxiety

    S2 - Ep.12 - Alex Galbally - Body Dysmorphia & Anxiety

    In this episode, the last of season 2 of Man Talk, I return to the format of series 1, as I talk to Alex Galbally, otherwise known as @daddy_to_triplet_girls on Instagram about his issues with anxiety and body dysmorphia. Whilst Alex is well-known online for being a father to triplets, another area he’s becoming more open about is his mental health. In this episode, Alex is incredibly open and honest about his struggles as he describes his darkest moments, whilst also detailing the help he’s received. I’m hugely grateful to Alex for opening up like this as this is not a topic that’s been discussed on Man Talk before, but I think we can all agree, as with anything that impacts on our mental health, it’s hugely important that it’s talked about.

    S2 - Ep.11 - Ben Eine - Street Artist

    S2 - Ep.11 - Ben Eine - Street Artist

    In this episode of Man Talk, I meet with Ben Eine (@einesigns) in Shoreditch, London. Ben is one of the most successful street artists in the world and is regarded as a pioneer in the exploration of graffiti letterforms. His distinctive letters spell words and phrases across walls from London to LA, Florence to Tokyo as he continues to use street art to engage the public. Our chat was actually in a pub as he took a break from finishing his piece on Old Street that spells ‘Stop Knife Crime’.

    We talk about his struggles with his mental health, which he openly admits are elevated by drugs and alcohol and go back to his teenage years. We discuss his coping mechanisms and counselling, and delve into the incredible work he does with charities. Using his art, he’s helped multiple charities such as Movember and Shelter.

    This week I’m in Camden with Kenny Mammarella-D'Cruz. Kenny is a personal development consultant, men’s coach and is also known as the ‘Man Whisperer’ (@themanwhisperer).

    Kenny’s story with mental health comes from the dramatic beginnings of his childhood; death threats, refugee camps, paternal abandonment and racism.

Jamie.

Well done with such a ground breaking podcast. Truly amazing and brave conversations in a normalised context. It really sends a positive message to men that its ok to talk about these things and the podcast will be inspirational to many.

Amazing pod

This is exactly what's needed. To be able to listen to other men, in the next stages of life from me, talk about their problems and how life affects them is such a reassurance. Please keep it up as this is vital.
