Relaxed but moving conversations

This podcast authentically shines a light on what it’s like to experience mental illness. Mike builds a natural connection to every guest through his conversational interview style and non judgemental outlook. Truly a privilege to listen to.

Important, warm and comfortable

I’m relatively new to your podcast and your tone is so relatable and kind. Mental Health awareness is an important pursuit and you’re doing great, KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
