The problem, Danny

Is that in this messed up world of snowflakes you’re not allowed to *TALK* about or *MENTION* subjects that potentially offend or “trigger” people. That’s why they don’t tolerate your opinion, it’s because it refers to things, regardless of your stance on them. Even if you had the completely opposite stance they would still complain, because you use *WORDS* that scare them.

Brilliant podcast

Always a very interesting listen and the host has a fantastic interviewing style, personal and knowledgable with a very understanding approach to psychology and everyday struggles. Great guests also :) (Steve Hayes, David Burns need I say more) 👍🏻

Bearing the unbearable

Listened to this yesterday. As a mum who’s daughter died in a car accident almost 12 years ago at age 23, this had some really useful information. Danny you ask the questions that most people daren’t, but that you know people want the answers. Thank you for handling this very sad subject with dignity, well done
