Possibly the most precious human on the planet

This podcast is the safe space that everyone with mental health struggles, from minor to major, craves for, but doesn’t believe exists. There is only acceptance and normalisation waiting for you in this podcast & the host, Paul Gilmartin, is the best kind of human to be around. From his humour to his empathy, he can truly be your best friend through some awful times & I have a great deal of gratitude for his existence because of this incredible podcast.
