    Are you having a quarter-life crisis? ft Chloe Garland - Millennial Matters: S6 Ep5

    Are you having a quarter-life crisis? ft Chloe Garland - Millennial Matters: S6 Ep5

    Growing up, we probably all had a rather stereotypical idea of what a mid-life crisis looked like, but no one prepared us for that same sort of feeling in our earlier years. A quarter-life crisis may not be immediately apparent and is brought about by a feeling of unease in all areas of life. Today we chat to Chloe, the founder of Quarter-Life to understand why so many young adults are feeling this way.

    Chloë is the founder of Quarter-Life, a career-coaching business that helps young adults experiencing ‘quarter-life crisis’ (a feeling of purposelessness in early adulthood) gain clarity over their lives and careers. Over the last few years she has worked individuals, universities, hospitals, schools and organisations which support disadvantaged young people to help hundreds of young adults prevent and navigate this crisis. Quarter-Life has been featured in Forbes, The Guardian, The Independent, The BBC and earlier in the year was selected to join the third co-hort of the Deutsche bank backed accelerator programme: ‘We In Social Tech’.

    It's Okay To Vent - Talking Male Mental Health with Freddie Cocker - Millennial Matters: S6 Ep4

    It's Okay To Vent - Talking Male Mental Health with Freddie Cocker - Millennial Matters: S6 Ep4

    We’ve discussed mental health on this podcast many times, but to be honest we feel like there’s been something missing from the conversation. Around 1 in 8 men have a common mental health problem, but they are far less likely to seek medical support, or open up to friends, family or even their employers. In the UK, men are three times as likely to die by suicide than women, and the rate is rising amongst the under 25s.

    In todays episode we sit down with Freddie Cocker to discuss male mental health issues, his own experiences and how he’s using his platform to help others share their experiences and find support.

    Freddie Cocker is the founder and Editor in Chief of Vent.org.uk, a platform where everyone, but men and boys especially, can share their experiences about their mental health, find support in a safe environment and, in doing so, help them to lead a full and enjoyable life.

    Freddie also hosts the Just Checking In Podcast, where each week a new guest, be it a comedian, a footballer or a frontline worker, share their personal experiences relating to mental health. It’s a lovely listen, often full of relatable stories and lets you know that you’re not alone in what you may be feeling.

    This episode discusses bullying, suicidal thoughts, toxic masculinity and the stigmas associated with men's mental health issues. Freddie shares honest and open insight into these issues and advice on how to reach out and find help if you, or someone you know, is struggling.

    Starting a business that aligns to your core values ft.The Hippie Haven - Millennial Matters: S6 Ep3

    In todays episode we’re excited to be heading across the pond (virtually of course!) to talk to Callee, the host of The Hippie Haven Podcast, as well as business owner of Bestowed Essentials, a vegan and eco friendly line of beauty and home products.

    We find out what it takes to grow a self employed business from scratch whilst staying true to your core values, and how Callee has adapted her business model in light of recent events.

    Callee speaks openly about her experiences as a young, female entrepreneur, from the struggles of imposter syndrome and male dominated networking events, to the joy of turning a passion project into a successful business that spreads a positive message and empowers women.

    We also have a chat about what it's like to live in America right now in the current political climate.

    This episode is full of Callee's great advice as well as a healthy dose of reality, so if you're thinking of starting your own business this is a must listen!

    Ways to look after your mental health during lockdown ft Lizzie Thomson - Millennial Matters: S6 Ep2

    As the weeks pass by in lockdown, there seems to be an ever more important focus growing around the mental health of individuals isolating in every country. This week we decided to chat to Lizzie Thomson, a freelance writer for Metro.co.uk, to discuss one of her recent articles looking at how to take care of ourselves as we all stay at home and wait this out.

    Lockdown Life, A Catchup - Millennial Matters : S6 Ep 1

    Our last season ended somewhat abruptly as the world went into lockdown. We've taken some time off to adjust to a new way of life but now we're back. We've missed you!

    To kick things off we take a look back at where we were when the pandemic took hold and what the UK lockdown measures. We also discuss how we've adjusted to lockdown life, coping mechanisms and the areas we're still working on!

    Rust Out, Careers & Mental Health ft Fiona Thomas - Millennial Matters: S5 Ep7

    Rust Out, Careers & Mental Health ft Fiona Thomas - Millennial Matters: S5 Ep7

    We often hear about burn out, the concept of being so relentlessly busy that your mental health is affected. However in this episode we chat to mental health writer Fiona Thomas to learn what can happen when we find ourselves in the opposite situation at work; whether that’s because we are under stimulated, stuck in an uninspiring role or unable to progress our career.

    This can lead to a concept known as Rust Out and there’s evidence to suggest that it can be just as detrimental. We dive in to explore what Rust out means and more importantly, what we can do about it, as well as discussing other aspects of how mental health and career choices can collide.

Rightist he ,

Great kitchen radio

Enjoyable podcast

Freddie Cocker ,

Two fantastic hosts who tackle mental health with compassion

I was a guest on Laura and Pippa’s podcast and I had a great experience. They are both empathetic hosts and brilliant listeners who ask the right questions and don’t shy away from the more difficult ones. I was privileged to be one of their first male guests and I’m sure they are helping loads of women and men through this podcast!

CRBladen ,

Highly recommended!
